• Expression of L1CAM in curettage or high L1CAM level in preoperative blood samples predicts lymph node metastases and poor outcome in endometrial cancer patients 

      Tangen, Ingvild Løberg; Kopperud, Reidun Kristin; Visser, Nicole C.M.; Staff, Anne Cathrine; Tingulstad, Solveig; Marcickiewicz, Janusz; Amant, Frédéric; Bjørge, Line; Pijnenborg, Johanna M.A.; Salvesen, Helga; Werner, Henrica Maria Johanna; Trovik, Jone; Krakstad, Camilla (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Background: Several studies have identified L1 cell adhesion molecule (L1CAM) as a strong prognostic marker in endometrial cancer. To further underline the clinical usefulness of this biomarker, we investigated L1CAM as ...
    • High visceral fat percentage is associated with poor outcome in endometrial cancer 

      Mauland, Karen Klepsland; Eng, Øyvin Andre Solberg; Ytre-Hauge, Sigmund; Tangen, Ingvild Løberg; Berg, Anna; Salvesen, Helga; Salvesen, Øyvind; Krakstad, Camilla; Trovik, Jone; Høivik, Erling Andre; Werner, Henrica Maria Johanna; Mellgren, Gunnar; Haldorsen, Ingfrid S. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Despite evidence of increased endometrial cancer (EC) risk in obese women, the impact of obesity on clinical and histological phenotype is poorly understood. This study explored abdominal fat volumes and fat distribution ...
    • Increased microvascular proliferation is negatively correlated to tumour blood flow and is associated with unfavourable outcome in endometrial carcinomas 

      Haldorsen, Ingfrid S.; Stefansson, Ingunn; Grüner, Renate; Husby, Jenny Hild Aase; Magnussen, Inger Johanne; Werner, Henrica Maria Johanna; Salvesen, Øyvind; Bjørge, Line; Trovik, Jone; Taxt, Torfinn; Akslen, Lars A.; Salvesen, Helga Birgitte (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013-10-31)
      Background: We aimed to study the angiogenic profile based on histomorphological markers in endometrial carcinomas in relation to imaging parameters obtained from preoperative dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance ...
    • MDM2 Promoter SNP344T>A (rs1196333) Status Does Not Affect Cancer Risk 

      Knappskog, Stian; Gansmo, Liv Beathe; Romundstad, Pål Richard; Bjørnslett, Merete Pauline; Trovik, Jone; Sommerfelt-Pettersen, Jan; Løkkevik, Erik; Tollenaar, Rob A.E.M.; Seynaeve, Caroline; Devilee, Peter; Salvesen, Helga Birgitte; Dørum, Anne; Hveem, Kristian; Vatten, Lars Johan; Lønning, Per Eystein (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      The MDM2 proto-oncogene plays a key role in central cellular processes like growth control and apoptosis, and the gene locus is frequently amplified in sarcomas. Two polymorphisms located in the MDM2 promoter P2 have been ...
    • Preoperative tumor size at MRI predicts deep myometrial invasion, lymph node metastases, and patient outcome in endometrial carcinomas 

      Ytre-Hauge, Sigmund; Husby, Jenny Hild Aase; Magnussen, Inger Johanne; Werner, Henrica Maria Johanna; Salvesen, Øyvind; Bjørge, Line; Trovik, Jone; Stefansson, Ingunn; Salvesen, Helga; Haldorsen, Ingfrid S. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Objective: The aim of this study was to explore the relation between preoperative tumor size based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the surgical pathologic staging parameters (deep myometrial invasion, cervical ...
