    Abstract : Background: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) after liver (LT) or intestinal (IT) transplantation may decrease patient survival. Calcineurin inhibitors (CNI) play a major role in its development. Aims: Describe long term renal function and risk factors for developing CKD in adults and children after LT and IT. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fetal hematopoietic cells in early gestation : aspects in view of fetal transplantation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Sverker Ek; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1995]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Fetal stem cells; fetal liver; fetal hematopoiesis; immunological ontogeny; fetal transplantation; cytokines; CD34 enrichment;

    Abstract : The fetus as a patient is a challenge. There are opportunities for early, sometimes life-saving procedures or there may be advantages in prenatal rather than postnatal intervention. This is the case in fetal hematopoietic cell (FHC) transplantation where conditions caused by a defect in blood cell formation may be life-threatening to the fetus. READ MORE

  5. 5. Experimental studies on the effects of hepatocyte-based liver support

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Helene Lilja; Uppsala universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; Surgery; kirurgi;

    Abstract : Liver transplantation is limited by lack of donors and consequently there is a need to develop liver support/replacement therapies, such as hepatocyte transplantation (HcTx) and artificial livers. In the present thesis, the effects of these therapies were investigated. First, we established a technique of isolating fetal hepatocytes (FH). READ MORE
