  1. 1. Renal function after transplantation of the liver and intestine

    Author : Gustaf Herlenius; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN; MEDICINE; adult liver transplantation; pediatric liver transplantation; intestinal transplantation; multivisceral transplantation; immunosuppression; calcineurin inhibitors; glomerular filtration rate; renal function; nephrotoxicity; chronic kidney disease; renal replacement therapy; mortality;

    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

  2. 2. Intestinal transplantation. Experimental and clinical studies

    Author : Mihai Oltean; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN; MEDICINE; Intestinal preservation; Ischemia-reperfusion injury; Tight junction; FK506; Resistin;

    Abstract : Intestinal preservation-reperfusion injury may result in various degrees of mucosal injury. Interestingly, the preservation injury is similar when using the current preservation solutions, which are given as a intravascular flush. An extensive mucosal injury may ultimately preclude the use of organs that require longer preservation time. READ MORE

  3. 3. Graft-versus-Host Disease: Eosinophils, Chimerism and Clinical Features in Patients Undergoing Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell or Multivisceral Transplantation

    Author : Julia Cromvik; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; graft-versus-host disease; eosinophilic granulocyte; intestinal transplantation; multivisceral transplantation; chimerism analysis;

    Abstract : Abstract Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is a potentially severe complication that may develop after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). It can also occur after transplantation with isolated intestinal grafts or after multivisceral transplantation (MVTX). GVHD is difficult to diagnose. READ MORE

  4. 4. Liver transplantation in man. Gastrointestinal perfusion and inflammatory response

    Author : Ebbe Rønholm; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthetics and intensive care; Transplantationskirurgi; Transplantation surgery; carbondioxide; complement activation; cytokines; endotoxaemia; hydrogen-ion concentration; liver transplantation; laser-Doppler flowmetry; PMN elastase; regional blood flow; reperfusion;

    Abstract : Patients undergoing liver transplantation develop a systemic inflammatory response which eventually continues with development of a multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS). Gastro-intestinal hypoxia or bacterial translocation has been proposed as the "motor" of MODS. READ MORE

  5. 5. EFFECTOR T CELL HOMING TO THE SMALL INTESTINAL MUCOSA

    University dissertation from Section for Immunology, Lund University

    Author : Hanna Stenstad; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunologi; transplantation; Immunology; serology; homing; intestine; GALT; chemokine receptor; lymphocyte; serologi;

    Abstract : The intestinal mucosa, including the intestinal epithelium and underlying lamina propria (LP), contains a large number of effector/memory T cells that are thought to play a central role in the generation and maintenance of mucosal immune responses and in maintaining mucosal integrity. The work in this thesis investigates the mechanisms regulating effector T cell recruitment to the small intestinal mucosa focusing on the role of chemokine receptors in this process. READ MORE
