TRAILs towards improved cervical cancer treatment

30 September 2009

PhD ceremony: J.H. Maduro, 14.45 uur, Academiegebouw, Broerstraat 5, Groningen

Thesis: TRAILs towards improved cervical cancer treatment

Promotor(s): prof. E.G.E. de Vries, prof. A.G.J. van der Zee

Faculty: Medical Sciences


Despite improvements in treatment results with the introduction of chemoradiation for cervical cancer, there is still much room for further treatment improvement. The aim of this thesis is to evaluate treatment-related adverse effects in cervical cancer patients and to explore in preclinical studies whether we are able to enhance the anti tumor effect of radiotherapy by targeting the TNF related apoptosis inducing ligand (TRAIL) route.
