METHODS In a population-based cohort study, information was retrieved from the Regional Lung Cancer Register in central Sweden, the Cause of Death Register and a social database. ORs and HRs were compared(More)
BACKGROUND Human papilloma virus (HPV) in patients with esophageal carcinoma has previously been studied with an average detection rate of 15%, but the role of HPV in relation to survival is less clear. In cervical cancer, lung cancer and tonsil cancer HPV viral load is a predictive factor for survival and outcome of treatment. The primary aim was to study(More)
BACKGROUND Lung cancer causes approximately one million deaths each year worldwide and protein p53 has been shown to be involved in the intricate processes regulating response to radiation and/or chemotherapeutic treatment. Consequently, since antibodies against p53 (anti-p53 antibodies) are associated with mutations within the p53 gene it seems likely that(More)
This randomized, multinational, multicenter study was designed to determine the response rate of gemcitabine monotherapy and cisplatin/etoposide combination therapy in chemotherapy-naive patients with advanced, recurrent, and/or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (stage IIIA [if inoperable], IIIB, or IV). One group of patients received gemcitabine 1,000(More)
