  1. 1. Early growth, retinopathy of prematurity and insulin-like growth factors in preterm infants

    Author : Eva Engström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Preterm; ROP; nutrition; growth; growth restriction; IGF-I; IGF-II; IGFBP-3;

    Abstract : Aims:Paper I: To perform measurements of the lower leg length (LLL) in preterm infants, compare and evaluate handling error and precision of two instruments, and estimate the time required to show growth.Paper II-IV: To investigate whether low postnatal levels of serum IGF-I are associated with abnormal retinal vessel development.

  2. 2. Liver regeneration : With reference to malnutrition and growth factors

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Stefan Skullman; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1993]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cholecystokinin; energy substrates; epidermal growth factor; insulin-like growth factor I; liver composition; liver regeneration; malnutrition; pancreaticobiliary diversion; protein synthesis; rat; transfonning growth factor alpha; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The liver has a unique capacity to regenerate after damage, irrespective of cause. The regulatory mechanisms of this regeneration are not fully known. Liver regeneration· is associated with rapid growth and thereby increased demands for energy and synthesis of new compounds. READ MORE

  3. 3. Proteolysis of insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-1, -2 and -4 : function of fragments

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Katrin Brandt; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Insulin-like growth factor;

    Abstract : The insulin-like growth factors (IGF-I and IGF-II) stimulate cell growth, survival and differentiation, and have insulin-like activity. A family of six IGF-binding proteins (IGFBP-1 through -6) bind to IGFs with high affinity and modulate their activity in the circulation and locally at cell-surface receptors. READ MORE

  4. 4. Insulin-like growth factor-I in the domestic cat

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Emma Strage; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) has growth promoting effects as well as insulin-like actions on metabolism. IGF-I associates with a family of six high affinity IGF-binding proteins (IGFBPs) and these interfere in immunoassays for IGF-I. READ MORE

  5. 5. Growth factors in spermatogenesis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Women's and Children's Health

    Author : Aida Wahlgren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Testis; seminiferous tubules; proliferation; growth factors; sex steroids;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to increase the knowledge of die effects of locally produced growth factors and hormones on germ cell proliferation in rat testis in vitro. Since impaired sperm production and function accounts for half the cases of infertility, it is important to understand the physiological actions in germ cell development. READ MORE
