    Sammanfattning : Head and neck cancer is the fifth most common cancer worldwide with an estimated annual global incidence of over 500 000 cases. These malignant tumours develop in the mucosal linings of the upper respiratory tract or in the salivary glands. The most common sites are in the oral cavity and larynx. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Laparoscopy and tumour growth : a clinical and experimental study

    Författare :Owe Lundberg; Anders Kristoffersson; Dag Arvidsson; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Background and aims: Laparoscopic technique was quickly adopted in general surgery because of less pain, quicker recovery and shorter hospital stay. In the 1990´s several reports on port site metastases restrained the enthusiasm to use laparoscopic surgery in malignant diseases. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Tumour Targeting Using Radiolabelled EGF Conjugates : Preclinical Studies

    Författare :Åsa Liljegren Sundberg; Jörgen Carlsson; Lars Gedda; Vladimir Tolmachev; Erik Blomquist; Gregory P. Adams; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radiation sciences; targeting; tumour; EGF; radionuclide; gefitinib; Iressa; ZD1839; glioma; therapy; diagnostics; Strålningsvetenskap; Radiation biology; Strålningsbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Tumour targeted radiotherapy is an appealing approach for treatment of disseminated tumour cells. A targeting agent that specifically binds to a structure on tumour cells is then used to transport therapeutically relevant radionuclides. The epidermal growth factor receptor, EGFR, is overexpressed on tumour cells in several malignancies, e.g. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Stromal collagens in colorectal cancer and in colorectal liver metastases : tumour biological implications and a source for novel tumour markers

    Författare :Hanna Nyström; Malin Sund; Peter Naredi; Per Sandström; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Background: Colorectal cancer (CRC) remains one of the leading causes of cancer-related mortality. About 50 % of patients with CRC will develop subsequent liver metastases (CLM). The survival for untreated CLM is only a few months and liver resection provides the only chance for a lasting cure. LÄS MER
