  1. 1. Liver cirrhosis-epidemiological and Clinical Aspects

    Author : Steingerður Anna Gunnarsdóttir; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Liver cirrhosis; etiology; alcoholic liver disease; mortality; portal hypertension; esophageal varices; variceal bleeding; hepatitis C; hepatocellular cancer; malignancies; small intestinal motility; small intestinal bacterial overgrowth;

    Abstract : Liver cirrhosis is the end-stage of many different chronic liver diseases. Limited data exists on the epidemiology, natural history and complications of liver cirrhosis such as esophageal varices and malignancies in the Nordic countries after the discovery of hepatitis C (HCV).

  2. 2. Gastroduodenal epithelial transport in patients with cystic fibrosis

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Karin Edshage Hallberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cystic fibrosis; CFTR; intestinal motility; gastric secretion; IgA; Ussing chamber; intestinal permeability; genotype;

    Abstract : Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease where respiratory failure due to chronic lung infection is the major cause of death. A defective protein, cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) alters chloride epithelial transport. READ MORE

  3. 3. Peripheral and central factors in the pathophysiology of irritable bowel syndrome

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Iris Posserud; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; irritable bowel syndrome IBS ; visceral perception; rectal perception; visceral hypersensitivity; gastrointestinal symptoms; hypervigilance; selective attention; stress; small intestinal bacterial overgrowth; rectal barostat; small bowel motility; gastrointestinal dysmotility;

    Abstract : Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorder characterized by abdominal pain and/or discomfort together with abnormal bowel habits. The pathophysiology is complex and incompletely understood. READ MORE

  4. 4. Adrenergic control of small intestinal motility and blood flow : an experimental study in rat and man

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Author : Mikael Thollander; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; clonidine; computerized recording; intestinal blood flow; isoprenaline; laser Doppler flownretry; manometry; migrating motor complex; oxymetazoline; propranolol; small intestine;

    Abstract : Small intestinal motility in the fasted state is characterized by migrating motor complexes (MMCs). Both animals and man exhibit the MMC, which consists of periods of regular contractions, i.e. activity fronts, that migrate along the length of the small bowel and alternate with periods of quiescence.

  5. 5. Development of nuclear medicine methods for gastric and small bowel motility : Effects of GLP-1 on gastric emptying

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Author : Per Grybäck; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gastric emptying; ghrelin; glucagon-like peptide-1; 99mTc-HIDA; obesity; radionuclide investigation; small bowel transit.;

    Abstract : The diagnosis of functional disorders of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract requires techniques being both sufficiently sensitive to detect disturbances of the normal physiology and low-invasive enough not to interfere with the properties being studied. The purpose was to set up nuclear medicine methods for assessment of upper GI tract motility and study the effect of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) on gastric emptying. READ MORE
