      Sun, Yi-Qian; Richmond, Rebecca C.; Suderman, Matthew; Min, Josine L; Battram, Thomas; Flatberg, Arnar; Beisvag, Vidar; Nøst, Therese Haugdahl; Guida, Florence; Jiang, Lin; Wahl, Sissel Gyrid Freim; Langhammer, Arnulf; Skorpen, Frank; Walker, Rosie M; Bretherick, Andrew D; Zeng, Yanni; Chen, Yue; Johansson, Mattias; Sandanger, Torkjel M; Relton, Caroline L; Mai, Xiao-Mei (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Background: It is unclear if smoking-related DNA methylation represents a causal pathway between smoking and risk of lung cancer. We sought to identify novel smoking-related DNA methylation sites in blood, with repeated ...
    • Associations between tumor mutations in cfDNA and survival in non-small cell lung cancer 

      Ottestad, Anine Larsen; Hong, Yan Dai; Halvorsen, Tarje Onsøien; Emdal, Elisabeth Fritzke; Wahl, Sissel Gyrid Freim; Grønberg, Bjørn Henning (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Introduction: Studies have indicated that detection of mutated KRAS or EGFR in circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) from pre-treatment plasma samples is a negative prognostic factor for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) pa-tients. ...
    • Asthma and asthma symptom control in relation to incidence of lung cancer in the HUNT study 

      Jiang, Lin; Sun, Yi-Qian; Langhammer, Arnulf; Brumpton, Ben Michael; Chen, Yu; Nilsen, Tom Ivar Lund; Leivseth, Linda; Wahl, Sissel Gyrid Freim; Mai, Xiao-Mei (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Large prospective studies on asthma, especially asthma symptom control, as a potential risk factor for lung cancer are limited. We followed up 62,791 cancer-free Norwegian adults from 1995–1997 to 2017. Self-reported ...
    • The prognostic effect of KRAS mutations in non-small cell lung carcinoma revisited: A norwegian multicentre study 

      Wahl, Sissel Gyrid Freim; Hong, Yan Dai; Emdal, Elisabeth Fritzke; Berg, Thomas; Halvorsen, Tarje Onsøien; Ottestad, Anine Larsen; Lund-Iversen, Marius; Brustugun, Odd; Førde, Dagny; Paulsen, Erna-Elise; Donnem, Tom; Andersen, Sigve; Grønberg, Bjørn Henning; Richardsen, Elin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Background: due to emerging therapeutics targeting KRAS G12C and previous reports with conflicting results regarding the prognostic impact of KRAS and KRAS G12C in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), we aimed to investigate ...
    • Prognostic value of absolute quantification of mutated KRAS in circulating tumour DNA in lung adenocarcinoma patients prior to therapy 

      Wahl, Sissel Gyrid Freim; Hong, Yan Dai; Emdal, Elisabeth Fritzke; Ottestad, Anine Larsen; Dale, Vibeke Grotnes; Richardsen, Elin; Halvorsen, Tarje Onsøien; Grønberg, Bjørn Henning (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Droplet digital polymerase chain reaction (ddPCR) is a highly sensitive and accurate method for quantication of nucleic acid sequences. We used absolute quantication of mutated v-Ki-ras2 Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene ...
