Sammanfattning : Renal cell carcinoma (RCC), a common malignancy worldwide, affects 1200 new patients yearly in Sweden. Metastatic RCC (mRCC) develops in one in three and is commonly incurable. Clear cell histology dominates followed by papillary histology. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Every year, around 2,200 individuals are diagnosed with rectal cancer in Sweden. As a result of better tumour staging using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), pre-operative radiotherapy (with or without chemotherapy), and improved surgery, outcome has improved substantially during the past few decades. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : An extended understanding of the molecular characteristics of cancer has led to a revolution within the field of precision medicine. This thesis explores the utilization of two targets for precision medicine, namely, CD44v6 and murine double-minute 2 and X (MDM2/X). LÄS MER
4. Dosimetry Studies of Different Radiotherapy Applications using Monte Carlo Radiation Transport Calculations
Sammanfattning : Developing radiation delivery systems for optimisation of absorbed dose to the target without normal tissue toxicity requires advanced calculations for transport of radiation. In this thesis absorbed dose and fluence in different radiotherapy applications were calculated by using Monte Carlo (MC) simulations. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Targeted radiotherapy (TRT) of cancer is a promising approach that enables selective treatment of tumour cells, while sparing normal tissue. The humanized monoclonal antibody A33 (huA33) is a potential targeting agent for TRT of colorectal cancer, since its antigen is expressed in more than 95 % of all colorectal carcinomas. LÄS MER
