Introduction
I am a Ph.D. student at Center for Surgical Science, Surgical Department, Zealand University. The focus of my current research is patients with colon cancer and the microbiota. I am a recent graduate from University of Copenhagen: completing my master degree in 2018. All through my studies, I have been drawn to surgery and cancer research, especially the tumors of the gastrointestinal tract.

Guidelines and requirements for diagnosing pathological complete response (pCR) in rectal adenocarcinoma following neoadjuvant treatment vary, and there is currently no consensus on the appropriate number of sections to examine per formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue block. The consequences of systematic use of deeper sections on the di...

Background The immune system recognizes and destroys cancer cells. However, cancer cells develop mechanisms to avoid detection by expressing cell surface proteins. Specific tumour cell surface proteins (e.g. HLA-G, PD-L1, CDX2) either alone or in combination with the relative presence of immune cells (CD3 and CD8 positive T-cells) in the tumour tis...

Current evidence suggests that bacteria contribute to the development of certain cancers, such as colorectal cancer (CRC), partly by stimulating chronic inflammation. However, little is known about the bacterial impact on molecular pathways in CRC. Recent studies have demonstrated how specific bacteria can influence the major CRC-related pathways,...
Article
Aim Objective and reproducible quality measures of complete mesocolic excision for colon cancer are currently not available. This study aimed to measure the inferior mesenteric stump length following CME for sigmoid colon cancer and explore surgical, pathological, and oncological outcomes in patients with a stump length of <10 mm vs. ≥10 mm. Metho...
Article
For the past decades, an increase in the incidence of colorectal cancer in young patients has been reported in several countries, including Denmark, and efforts need to be taken in order to halt this tendency. This review characterises the clinical and pathological attributes of young patients with early-onset colorectal cancer (EOCRC). Risk factor...
Article
Aim The present database study aimed to identify patients with a longer postoperative length of stay (LOS) or patients readmitted, and to characterize both groups based on perioperative factors. Method A retrospective review of the Danish Colorectal Cancer Group (DCCG) database and a local database was performed of all patients undergoing elective...

IntroductionIdentification of lymph nodes and pathological analysis is crucial for the correct staging of colon cancer. Lymph nodes that drain directly from the tumor area are called “sentinel nodes” and are believed to be the first place for metastasis. The purpose of this study was to perform sentinel node mapping in vivo with indocyanine green a...

Introduction: Patients treated with transvaginal cholecystectomy have less post-operative pain and improved cosmesis compared to patients treated with conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy. No systematic review or meta-analysis has been conducted focusing on similar beneficial surgeries for men. The aim of this meta-analysis was to compare tra...
