  1. 1. Calibration of Breast Cancer Natural History Models Using Approximate Bayesian Computation

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Oscar Bergqvist; [2020]
    Keywords : Approximate Bayesian Computation; ABC; breast cancer natural history models; random effects; Bayesian statistics; likelihood-free inference; Approximate Bayesian computation; ABC; natural history models för bröstcancer; random effects; bayesiansk statistik; likelihood-fri inferens;

    Abstract : Natural history models for breast cancer describe the unobservable disease progression. These models can either be fitted using likelihood-based estimation to data on individual tumour characteristics, or calibrated to fit statistics at a population level. READ MORE

    Abstract : Introduction: To save lives, mastectomy is an essential intervention, but it can also causephysical and psychological trauma. An important step in restoring breast cancer patient’squality of life is to offer reconstruction. Immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) is thealternative that provides highest patient-reported life quality post surgery. READ MORE


    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för medicinsk biokemi och mikrobiologi

    Author : Farhana Manzoor; [2020]
    Keywords : Bovine meat and milk factors; multiple sclerosis; immunoprecipitation co-immunoprecipitation; protein dimers; mass spectrometry; immunodetection; cesium chloride density gradient centrifugation; sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis; vesicle; particle; interaction partner; pull-down assay.;

    Abstract : Introduction: Bovine meat and milk factors (BMMF) frequently isolated from bovine meat and milk, are discussed as putative causative agents for breast, colon and possibly other cancers. The hypothesis was formulated based on earlier correlative studies indicating that BMMFs could indirectly trigger inflammation, accumulate mutational events via reactive oxygen and nitrogen species production which eventually provokes tumor formation.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Rebecca Axelsson; [2020]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Styvhetsförändringar i bröstvävnad är ofta kopplade till en patologisk förändring. Vissa cancertyper som infiltererande duktalt carcinom kan vara åtta gånger så styv som fettvävnaden runt omkring. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Tumor Promoting Actions of Exosomal miRNAs

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Author : Emil Johansson; [2020]
    Keywords : Exosome; exosomal miRNA; cancer; tumor proliferation; gene regulation; miRNA; tumor;

    Abstract : Exosomes are nanosized vesicles that contain proteins and nucleic acids. They are released and taken up by many different cell types as a way of cell-to-cell communication. It has previously been recognized that exosomes released by cancer cells promote tumor progression. READ MORE
