  1. 1. Carbonate Ions and Gastric Cancer

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Roy Ehrnström; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ODC; Medicine human and vertebrates ; COX-2; inflammation; Wistar rats; duodenogastric reflux; Medicin människa och djur ; proliferation; gastrojejunostomy; carbonate ions; Experimental gastric cancer;

    Abstract : Nearly one million new cases of gastric cancer are diagnosed annually throughout the world. Even though the incidence has fallen dramatically in recent decades, this disease is still the second leading cause of cancer death in a global perspective. READ MORE

  2. 2. Streptococcal M protein and human C4BP

    University dissertation from Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Jenny J Persson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Infections; Infektioner; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; human C4BP; M protein; antigenic variation; sequence variability; Streptococcus pyogenes; innate immunity;

    Abstract : Antigenic variation of surface proteins allows microorganisms to evade the immune system of the infected host. This phenomenon represents an apparent paradox, because the variable protein must retain an important function, while its antigenic properties vary extensively. READ MORE

  3. 3. Protein kinase C epsilon and neurite outgrowth

    University dissertation from Molecular Medicine

    Author : Ruth Zeidman; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ;

    Abstract : Protein kinase C (PKC) is a serine/threonine kinase family with 10 identified isoforms. The contribution of PKC isoforms to cell growth and differentiation, with focus on neurite outgrowth, was investigated, using neuroblastoma and immortalised neural cells as model systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hypoxia and differentiation in human neuroblastoma cells

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Helén Nilsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; embryology human ; ontogeny; Utvecklingsbiologi; teratologi; embryologi människa ; teratology; cytogenetik; Development biology; cytogenetics; Genetik; Genetics; Medicin människa och djur ; HIF; Medicine human and vertebrates ; MYCN; Hypoxia; differentiation; Neuroblastoma;

    Abstract : The childhood tumour neuroblastoma is derived from immature cells of the sympathetic nervous system, which have become arrested at different maturation stages. Neuroblastoma is a malignancy with a high degree of heterogeneity, and there is a correlation between a poor differentiation status and a more aggressive phenotype. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mechanisms behind the lipid-lowering effects of ACTH - Studies in different experimental models

    University dissertation from Maria Skoog dept. of Laboratory Medicine Lund University

    Author : Maria Skoog; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lipid; Medicine human and vertebrates ; ACTH; Apolipoprotein-B; Cholesterol; Human; Rat; Rabbit; Medicin människa och djur ;

    Abstract : Abstract Adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) has strong and direct lipid-lowering effects in man. All apoB-containing lipoproteins, i.e. VLDL, LDL, Lp(a), are reduced by 25-30%. READ MORE
