  1. 1. Neuromuscular function in the normal and inflamed colon. An experimental study in rat

    Author : Lars Börjesson; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gastroenterologi; Gastroenterology; ATP; dextran sulphate sodium; DMPP; enteric nervous system; McN-A-343; nitric oxide; non-adrenergic; rat; second messenger; smooth muscle; VIP;

    Abstract : Neuromuscular function of the longitudinal muscle layer of distal colon was investigated in segments from normal rats and from rats with colitis induced by dextran sulphate sodium (DSS) at 3% for 3 or 7 days or 5% for 7 days. The study was performed in vitro, on spontaneous tone, or after precontraction. READ MORE

  2. 2. Body composition and quality of life in patients with IBD, ileostomy and short bowel syndrome

    Abstract : Patients with IBD are at risk for intestinal disability (e.g. having a stoma, malnutrition). The general aim of the thesis was to investigate physiological, psychological and social consequences of having IBD and an ileostomy or short bowel syndrome (SBS). READ MORE

  3. 3. Gastroduodenal epithelial transport in patients with cystic fibrosis

    Author : Karin Edshage Hallberg; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2000]

    Abstract : Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease where respiratory failure due to chronic lung infection is the major cause of death. A defective protein, cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) alters chloride epithelial transport. READ MORE

  4. 4. Gastro-intestinal toxicity related to haemopoietic stem cell transplantation with a special focus on the intestinal barrier function

    Author : Jan-Erik Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gastroenterologi; Gastroenterology;

    Abstract : The myeloablative, cytotoxic therapy (conditioning treatment) prior to haemopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has the combined purpose of eliminating leukaemic or cancer cells located in the bone marrow or elsewhere in the body and, in the allogeneic setting, of suppressing the immune response of the recipient to prevent marrow rejection. The unwanted effect is the inevitable elimination of normal, haemopoietic stem cells, a lethal effect which is circumvented by the following administration of haemopoietic stem cells from the patient (autologous HSCT) or from a related or an unrelated donor (allogeneic HSCT).

    Abstract : Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is characterized by abdominal pain and/or discomfort related to abnormal bowel habits. Gastrointestinal (GI) motility disturbances, visceral hypersensitivity and psychological factors are involved in the pathophysiology of IBS. READ MORE
