Although thyroid cancer is fairly common, it has a relatively good prognosis compared to other cancers. Survival varies depending on type of thyroid cancer, with papillary carcinoma, the most common type, having the highest survival rate. By using a systems level approach to analyze the thyroid cancer proteome based on clinical metadata and genome-wide transcriptomics data, 374 genes were found to be associated with prognostic outcome...Read more


More Than 700 Genes Linked to Prognosis in Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is the third most common cancer type in women worldwide. Screening programs have contributed to decreased mortality, however, cervical cancer remains a major cause of cancer-related death among women in countries with limited access to screening. By using a systems level approach to analyze the cervical cancer proteome based on clinical metadata and genome-wide transcriptomics data, 724 genes were found to be associated with prognostic outcome...Read more

In an article in "Onkologi i Sverige" (Swedish) Prof. Fredrik Pontén has written an article on the history, background and development of the Human Protein Atlas project. General strategies and historic milestones are described as well as an update of the current status of the three main parts of the current version of the Human Protein Atlas; the Normal Tissue Atlas, the Cell Atlas and the recent Pathology Atlas.

Renal cancer affects mainly adults above age 60 and is more common in men than women. Although smoking, industrial chemicals and obesity have been suggested as risk factors, the underlying cause of renal cancer is often unknown. By using a systems level approach to analyze the renal cancer proteome based on clinical metadata and genome-wide transcriptomics data, 5968 genes were found to be associated with prognostic outcome...Read more

Urothelial cancer, also called bladder cancer, typically presents in patients over 50 years and is approximately three times as common in males compared to females. Tobacco is considered an important risk factor for developing bladder cancer. By using a systems level approach to analyze the urothelial cancer proteome based on clinical metadata and genome-wide transcriptomics data, 1093 genes were found to be associated with prognostic outcome...Read more
