      Borgen, Elin; Rypdal, Maria Christine; Sosa, Maria Soledad; Renolen, Anne; Schlichting, Ellen; Lønning, Per Eystein; Synnestvedt, Marit; Aguirre-Ghiso, Julio; Naume, Bjørn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-10-16)
      Background: The presence of disseminated tumor cells (DTCs) in bone marrow (BM) is an independent prognostic factor in early breast cancer but does not uniformly predict outcome. Tumor cells can persist in a quiescent state ...
    • Persistence of disseminated tumor cells after neoadjuvant treatment for locally advanced breast cancer predicts poor survival 

      Mathiesen, Randi Margit Ruud; Borgen, Elin; Renolen, Anne; Løkkevik, Erik; Nesland, Jahn M.; Anker, Gun; Østenstad, Bjørn; Lundgren, Steinar; Risberg, Terje; Mjaaland, Ingvil; Kvalheim, Gunnar; Lønning, Per Eystein; Naume, Bjørn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012-08-14)
      Introduction: Presence of disseminated tumor cells (DTCs) in bone marrow (BM) and circulating tumor cells (CTC) in peripheral blood (PB) predicts reduced survival in early breast cancer. The aim of this study was to determine ...
    • Serum concentrations of active tamoxifen metabolites predict long-term survival in adjuvantly treated breast cancer patients 

      Helland, Thomas; Henne, Nina; Bifulco, Ersilia; Naume, Bjørn; Borgen, Elin; Kristensen, Vessela N.; Kvaløy, Jan Terje; Lash, Timothy L; Grenaker, Grethe Irene; van Schaik, RHN; Janssen, Emiel; Hustad, Simon Steinar; Lien, Ernst Asbjørn; Mellgren, Gunnar; Søiland, Håvard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-11-28)
      Background: Controversies exist as to whether the genetic polymorphisms of the enzymes responsible for the metabolism of tamoxifen can predict breast cancer outcome in patients using adjuvant tamoxifen. Direct measurement ...
