    Författare :Helgi Birgisson; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :Surgery; cancer; colon; rectal; colorectal; survival; radiation therapy; second cancer; adverse effects; Kirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : The Swedish Cancer Register was used to determine the relative survival rate in colon and rectal cancer and to estimate the occurrence of second cancers related to radiation therapy for rectal cancer. The Swedish Hospital Discharge Register and hospital records were used to estimate the rate of late adverse effects due to radiation therapy for rectal cancer. LÄS MER

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Fanny Söderquist; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; melatonin; MT1; MT2; gastointestinal tract; small intestinal neuroendocrine tumours; IBS; depression; anxiety; personality and affective disorder; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science; Psychiatry; Psykiatri;

    Sammanfattning : Melatonin is recognised as the pineal hormone regulating sleep and circadian rhythm. It has also been identified in peripheral tissues (mainly in animals) and thought to display a variety of actions, including anti-inflammatory properties, regulation of gastrointestinal (GI) functions, glucose homeostasis and beneficial effects in different tumour types.

  3. 8. Towards restoring intestinal health after pelvic radiotherapy - Lessons from dietary fiber intervention in a novel mouse model

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborgs universitet

    Författare :Piyush Patel; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pelvic radiotherapy; Gastrointestinal symptoms;

    Sammanfattning : Patients who have cancer in the pelvic region are at risk of developing gastrointestinal symptoms for weeks, months, or even years after receiving radiotherapy. These symptoms are triggered due to unwanted radiation-induced damage to surrounding non-cancerous tissues, resulting in the disruption of normal physiological functions. LÄS MER

  4. 9. Liver cirrhosis-epidemiological and Clinical Aspects

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborgs universitet

    Författare :Steingerður Anna Gunnarsdóttir; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
