    Beatrice Melin
    Department of Radiation Sciences, Oncology, Umea University, Umea, Sweden
    Int J Cancer 132:2464-8. 2013
    ..These findings require confirmation in further studies with a larger number of glioma cases with a family history of brain tumours...
  2. pmc Genetic variations in VEGF and VEGFR2 and glioblastoma outcome
    S Sjostrom
    Department of Radiation Sciences, Oncology, Umea University Hospital, 90187, Umea, Sweden
    J Neurooncol 104:523-7. 2011
    ..Overall, this study provides little evidence that VEGF and VEGFR2 polymorphisms are important for glioblastoma survival...

    Logan C Walker
    Division of Genetics and Population Health, Queensland Institute of Medical Research, Brisbane, Australia
    Breast Cancer Res 12:R102. 2010
    ..In this study, we evaluated 24 SNPs tagged to 14 candidate genes derived through a novel approach that analysed gene expression differences to prioritise candidate modifier genes for association studies...
