  1. 1. On dysregulated inflammation and airway host defense

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Ravi K. V. Bhongir; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aiway inflammation; Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD ; Cystic Fibrosis; Pseudomonas aeruginosa; DNase I;

    Abstract : Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cystic fibrosis (CF) are characterized by dysregulated inflammation of the airways. The increased influx of immune cells and the accumulation of cytokines lead to cell death, tissue destruction and impaired pulmonary function. READ MORE

  2. 2. Expanding the Amino Acid Alphabet by Design Enhanced and Controlled Catalytic Activity in Folded Polypeptide Catalysts

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : N. Johan V. Lindgren; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Chemistry; MEDICIN Kemi; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses structure and reactivity of polypeptide catalysts in reactions that mimic the hydrolysis of RNA and DNA. A designed helix-loop-helix motif was used as a scaffold where the amino acid residues were systematically varied. READ MORE

  3. 3. Physical Aspects of Thermotherapy - A study of heat transport with a view to treatment optimisation

    University dissertation from Department of Radiation Physics, Lund university

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Lokal behandling med målsättning att förstöra kroppsvävnad genom uppvärmning (termoterapi) kan i vissa fall vara ett alternativ eller komplement till kirurgi. I avhandlingen presenteras utrustning och metoder för att, utifrån en fysikalisk synvinkel, göra sådana behandlingar säkrare och effektivare. READ MORE

  4. 4. Peripheral nerve function metabolic features, clinical assessment, and heat shock protein 27

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Kaveh Pourhamidi; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Peripheral neuropathy is a common complication among patients with diabetes mellitus, but whether peripheral neuropathy is present in individuals with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) is debatable. In order to identify and diagnose peripheral neuropathy correctly, it is important to evaluate diagnostic tools that can be implemented in routine health care to assess both large and small nerve fibre function.

  5. 5. Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of pentoxifylline and metabolites

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Marie V Magnusson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pharmacokinetics; Pentoxifylline; metabolites; pharmacodynamics;

    Abstract : Pentoxifylline is a haemorheologic drug with complex pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics due to both reversible metabolism and the formation of active metabolites. In humans, pentoxifylline is metabolised to at least seven phase 1 metabolites (M1-M7). READ MORE
