    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Septisk shock (shock utlöst av blodförgiftning) är en potentiellt dödlig komplikation till infektion med bakterier eller andra mikroorganismer. Inte bara de infekterande organismerna i sig, men också de inflammatoriska system och signalsubstanser som aktiveras, orsaker ett generaliserat inflammatoriskt tillstånd. READ MORE

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to elucidate the role of nitric oxide (NO) in the transduction signalling of insulin and glucagon release by stimulating or inhibiting islet endogenous NO-production as well as by using NO donors. Insulin release stimulated by L-arginine, the substrate for constitutive NO-synthase (cNOS)-catalyzed NO-production, was increased by the selective NOS-inhibitor NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) and suppressed by the intracellular NO donor hydroxylamine.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Den första beskrivningen av diabetes mellitus gjordes redan 1500 före Kristus när en faraos läkare noterade att myror samlade sig omkring urin från vissa människor men inte andras. På 1700-talet beskrevs för första gången närvaron av större mängder socker i såväl blod som urin hos diabetiska patienter. READ MORE
