  2. 2. Particles in small airways : Mechanisms for deposition and clearance & pharmacokinetic assessments of delivered dose to the lung

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Public Health Sciences

    Author : Maria Lindström; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lung deposition; clearance; small airways; pharmacokinetic; cystic fibrosis; primary ciliary dyskinesia; asthma; sodium cromoglycate;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND Knowledge about lung deposition and clearance from airways of inhaled particles/drugs are essential for evaluation of health effects of inhaled pollutants and to achieve optimal drug dose to the lung. The primary defence mechanism in the conducting airways is the mucociliary clearance (MCC). READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies of the Elemental Composition of Airway Surface Liquid with Relevance to Cystic Fibrosis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Viengphet Vanthanouvong; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Anatomy; airway surface liquid; cystic fibrosis; Na; K; Cl; X-ray microanalysis; Anatomi;

    Abstract : Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease with symptoms mainly in the respiratory tract. The airway epithelium is covered with a thin layer of fluid, the airway surface liquid (ASL). The volume and composition of ASL are important in the pathogenesis of cystic fibrosis. The composition of ASL was determined. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genome characterisation and mobility investigation in trypanosomes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Cell and Molecular Biology

    Author : Carole Branche; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Trypanosoma brucei - Trypanosoma cruzi - karyotype - genome organisation -flageflum mobility - RNAi - functional studies.;

    Abstract : Trypanosomes are uni-flagellated protozoa responsible for some of the most debilitating human infections such as Chagas disease (Trypanosoma cruzi) and sleeping sickness (Trypanosoma brucei). Unravelling their genome organisation and their biology would improve our basic knowledge and could contribute to find new drug target specific to the species. READ MORE

  5. 5. Gene expression profiles at the myotonic dystrophy 1 locus : Possible role in disease mechanisms

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Maria Eriksson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Myotonic dystrophy 1 (DM1) is the commonest adult onset muscular dystrophy, (prevalence 1/8000). The disorder is characterized by anticipation (earlier onset in successive generations, which is accompanied in this disorder by an increase in severity of symptoms) and variable multisystemic symptom presentation.
