    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish De flesta barn som insjuknar i epilepsi tillfrisknar eller blir anfallsfria med hjälp av antiepileptisk medicin. Hos drygt en fjärde del av barnen blir epilepsin svårbehandlad och anfallskontroll är svår att uppnå. Dessa barn ska i första hand erbjudas möjlighet till epilepsikirurgisk utredning och behandling.

  3. 3. Role of prostaglandin E2 as a neuro-immune mediator in the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Author : Priya Revathikumar; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Therapeutic implications of cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway (CAP) activation have marked the beginning of a novel treatment strategy of passing electrical impulses along the left vagus nerve to alleviate acute and chronic inflammatory conditions. Extensive work in understanding CAP through vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) have identified key molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in the α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) mediated control of inflammation.
