  1. 1. Aspects on sepsis : treatment and markers

    University dissertation from Malmö University. Faculty of Health and Society

    Author : Anna Gustafsson; Malmö University.; Malmö University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; antimicrobial peptides; cytokines; lipoteichoic acid; lipopolysaccharide; soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor; sepsis;

    Abstract : Sepsis is one of the greatest challenges in critical care medicine today, while the treatment of sepsis and evaluation of its severity is complicated. The first part of this thesis presents two approaches on the use of antimicrobial peptides in sepsis treatment, relying on both soluble and immobilized peptides. READ MORE

  2. 2. A multifaceted study of the receptor tyrosine kinase Axl with focus on Renal Cell Carcinoma

    University dissertation from Division of Clinical Chemistry and Pharmacology, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Anna Gustafsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The present investigation is a multifaceted study of the receptor tyrosine kinase Axl, whose overexpression and activation is implicated in several human malignancies, with focus on renal cell carcinoma (RCC). At first, our main interest concerned the intracellular Axl interactor named Tensin2 (Tns2) and its family member Tensin3 (Tns3). READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of targeted alpha therapy with Bi-213 and At-211 for the treatment of disseminated cancer

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Anna Gustafsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; alpha particles; astatine; bismuth; MX35; ovarian cancer; polylysine; pretargeted radioimmunotherapy; radioimmunotherapy;

    Abstract : Radioimmunotherapy (RIT) is a type of targeted cancer therapy. The concept behind RIT is to deliver cytotoxic ionizing radiation to tumor cells by attaching radionuclides to tumor-specific antibodies. READ MORE

  4. 4. The role of microstructure for crack propagation in cortical bone

    University dissertation from Department of Biomedical Engineering, Lund university

    Author : Anna Gustafsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2019-11-11]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Crack deflection; Interface; Mechanical testing; Micro-CT; Osteon; Porosity; XFEM;

    Abstract : Healthy cortical bone tissue is both tough and strong and has a unique ability to resist fracture. One reason is the hierarchical structure of the tissue where toughening mechanisms at all length scales act to slow down or stop a propagating crack. READ MORE

  5. 5. Thermal response test numerical simulations and analyses

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Anna-Maria Gustafsson; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vattenteknik; Water Resources Engineering; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : When constructing large borehole heat exchanger (BHE) systems, bedrock and borehole thermal properties are vital for a good design. Today's design programs presume conductive heat transfer in both borehole and bedrock. READ MORE
