Professor of Clinical Oncology
On this web site you will find information about my scientific work within cancer research,
as well as other activities.
My clinical experience and research are mainly devoted to primary bone and soft tissue cancers (sarcomas) and skeletal metastases from prostate cancer and breast cancer. In particular, targeted radionuclide therapy, e.g. Alpharadin (Algeta), based on Radium-223, is currently at center stage.

In essence the scope and intensive coverage of the book provides a historical perspective of the advances made over the past 30 years and emerging concepts and prospects for new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. This is based upon past experiences and new discoveries. It also provides a unique opportunity for pediatric and adult medical oncologists, physicians in training, orthopedic surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, radiotherapists, oncology nurses and allied professionals involved in the care of pediatric/adolescent patients with osteosarcoma to become acquainted with prevailing methods of treatment and new and evolving concepts and developments.

An interview with professor Řyvind S. Bruland has recently been published on the University of Oslo web page, in their popular scientific series "Interviews with researchers" (in Norwegian). It is entitled "Raketter og tverrfaglighet i kampen mot kreft" ("Rockets and interdisciplinarity in the fight against cancer").
Řyvind S. Bruland's research is mainly devoted to primary bone and soft tissue cancers (sarcomas) and skeletal metastases from prostate cancer and breast cancer.
A comprehensive review on the use of bone-seeking radiopharmaceuticals; including Alpharadin, in bone-metastatic patients was publisehed in Cancer Treatment Reviews, 2012. Click here for a pdf of the publication

In the latest issue of Clinical Cancer Research, a separate section is devoted to the proceedings from an expert meeting in Boston, October last year. Here invited papers on various aspects of the management of patients with bone metastases are published. This includes a review (by Bruland et al.) on external radiotherapy, bone-seeking radiopharamaceuticals, including recent progress using Alpharadin - a novel bone-seeker; currently in phase II clinical testing in patients with bone metastases from hormone refractory prostate cancer.
