  1. 1. Pain in pediatric oncology : Explorative and interventional studies focusing on oral mucositis

    Författare :Tove Kamsvåg; Gustaf Ljungman; Louise von Essen; Johan Arvidson; Stefan Nilsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Children; Pain; Oncology; Mucositis; Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation; Pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to examine the prevalence of pain in children treated for cancer with a special focus oral mucositis. In addition, we wanted to examine if oral cryotherapy (OC) could reduce the incidence of severe oral mucositis in children undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), and explore new methods to implement OC.

  2. 2. Quality improvement in palliative care : the role of a national quality register and perceptions of information during palliative chemotherapy

    Författare :Lisa Martinsson; Bertil Axelsson; Christina Melin-Johansson; Per Fransson; Kerstin Sandelin; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cancer; chemotherapy; communication; end-of-life care; oncology; palliative care; palliative medicine; quality in healthcare; quality register; onkologi; Oncology;

    Sammanfattning : IntroductionThere is a need in palliative care for development of structured methods to assess quality and support improvement. This need is present both within and outside specialised palliative care.Honest information from physicians is regarded as an important part of palliative care. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Copy Number Analysis of Cancer

    Författare :Markus Mayrhofer; Anders Isaksson; Simon Tavaré; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chromosomes; oncology; bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Bioinformatics; Oncology; Onkologi; Clinical Genetics; Klinisk genetik;

    Sammanfattning : By accurately describing cancer genomes, we may link genomic mutations to phenotypic effects and eventually treat cancer patients based on the molecular cause of their disease, rather than generalizing treatment based on cell morphology or tissue of origin.Alteration of DNA copy number is a driving mutational process in the formation and progression of cancer.

  4. 4. Prediction of survival in prostate cancer : aspects on localised, locally advanced and metastatic disease

    Författare :David Robinson; Eberhard Varenhorst; Börje Ljungberg; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Protstate cancer; oncology; PSA diagnosisk; TNM classification; Oncology; Onkologi;

    Sammanfattning : Background and aims: The clinical course of prostate cancer is highly variable and difficult to predict.Stage at presentation, grade and PSA at diagnosis are traditionally used to predict outcome. The aimof this thesis was to identify strategies for improved survival prediction in men with prostate cancer. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Radiolabeled acetate PET in oncology imaging : studies on head and neck cancer, prostate cancer and normal distribution

    Författare :Aijun Sun; Jens Sörensen; Silvia Johansson; Mikael Karlsson; Katrine Åhlström Riklund; Ingela Turesson; Heikki Minn; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 11C-acetate; 18F-fluoroacetate; PET; head and neck cancer; staging; delineating tumor volume; clearance rate; perfusion; RT; treatment outcome; benign and malignant lymph node; prostate cancer; normal distribution; Oncology; Onkologi; onkologi; Oncology;

    Sammanfattning : The use of positron emission tomography (PET) for imaging in oncology has grown rapidly in recent years. 2-[18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) is the most common tracer of PET, although drawbacks exist. LÄS MER
