Sammanfattning : Photodynamic therapy (PDT) as a cancer treatment modality relies on the simultaneous presence of three components; light, photosensitiser and oxygen. Once excited by the light, the photosensitiser can interact with oxygen, leading to the formation of toxic oxygen species. LÄS MER
2. Interferon-alpha based treatment of metastatic malignant melanoma : Effect of immune parameters of importance for monitoring immunotherapy
Sammanfattning : Cutaneous malignant melanoma is a rapidly increasing disease. Most patients are cured by surgical excision of their primary tumour, but for patients with metastatic disease the prognosis is still very poor despite various attempts with chemotherapeutic agents, and during the last decade with immunotherapy, using several different biological agents alone or in combination.

Sammanfattning : Postmenopausal estrogen therapy, initiated early in the menopause, seems to protect against development of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases. This thesis concerns studies of artery wall thickness and arterial stiffness estimated by noninvasive ultrasound techniques in long-term estrogen treated postmenopausal women who initiated therapy at the time of the menopause.

4. Interstitial laser thermotherapy (ILT) of an adenocarcinoma implanted into rat liver - methodology and effects
Sammanfattning : Local treatment of a tumour is of interest from a number of perspectives. It is focused on reducing the tumour volume with minimal trauma, inducing tumour immunity and is a potential component of a combination therapy against tumours. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Positron emission tomography (PET) is a tracer technique used for quantitative in vivo studies of physiological and biochemical processes. Because of the use of positron-emitting radionuclides such as 11-C, 13-N, 15-O and 18-F, which are isotopes of the biologically ubiquitous elements, it is possible to label radiopharmaceuticals which trace biochemical processes precisely.
