  1. 1. Actions of androgens and estrogens in experimental models of cardiovascular disease

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Johan Bourghardt Fagman; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; AR; atherosclerosis; AAA; androgens; testosterone; 2-methoxyestradiol;

    Abstract : Men are at higher risk of developing both atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Actions of sex steroids are hypothesized to underlie these gender differences. Testosterone, the major androgen, reduces atherosclerosis in male animal models but is suggested to promote AAA formation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Genetic variation and prostate cancer population-based association studies in Sweden

    University dissertation from Umeå : Strålningsvetenskaper

    Author : Sara Lindström; Umeå universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; epidemiology; SRD5A2; ERG; progression; genetics; association studies; polymorphism; haplotype; CDH1; AR; CYP17; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer constitutes the most common malignancy and the most common cause of cancer‐related death in Swedish men. A large body of evidence suggests that inherited genetic variants contribute to both development and progression of prostate cancer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Synthesis of nanostructured and hierarchical materials for bio-applications

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Fei Ye; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fe3O4; mSiO2; core-shell; MRI; multifunctional; PNIPAAm; LCST; gold; nanorod; nitric acid; AR; MDDC; biocompatibility; immunomodulation; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering Chemical process and manufacturing engineering Materials chemistry; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik Kemisk process- och produktionsteknik Materialkemi;

    Abstract : In recent years, nanostructured materials incorporated with inorganic particles and polymers have attracted attention for simultaneous multifunctional biomedical applications. This thesis summarized three works, which are preparation of mesoporous silica coated superparamagnetic iron oxide ([email protected]) nanoparticles (NPs) as magnetic resonance imaging T2 contrast agents, polymer grafted [email protected] NPs response to temperature change, synthesis and biocompatibility evaluation of high aspect ratio (AR) gold nanorods.

  4. 4. Image analysis of prostate cancer tissue biomarkers

    University dissertation from Division of Urological Cancers

    Author : Giuseppe Lippolis; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; prostate cancer; image analysis; Time Resolved Fluorescence; automated Gleason; PSA; AR; fusion gene; TMAs;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men. In order to improve diagnosis and prognosis, new sensitive and specific biomarkers are needed. Tissue biomarkers carry expression and morphological information of the tissue where they are expressed. READ MORE

  5. 5. ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINANTS AND SPERM Y:X CHROMOSOME RATIO. Impact of androgen- and dioxin-related effects in vivo and in vitro

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Tarmo Tiido; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; AR; polymorphisms; Sertoli cell; endocrine disruption; inhibitory cross-talk; Biomedicinska vetenskaper; Biomedical sciences; AHR; sperm Y:X chromosome ratio; sex ratio; POPs; TCDD;

    Abstract : During the last decades, there has been concern that the environmental contaminants, such as POPs, may contribute to sex ratio changes in offspring of exposed populations. Accidental exposure to TCDD has been shown to be associated with fewer sons in men who were exposed in adolescence or earlier in life. READ MORE
