  1. 1. Prostate cancer theranostics using GRPR antagonist RM26

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Bogdan Mitran; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gastrin-releasing peptide receptor GRPR ; Bombesin; Prostate-specific membrane antigen PSMA ; Antagonist; Radionuclide molecular imaging; Theranostics; Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy PRRT .;

    Abstract : The malignant transformation of cells is often associated with an alteration of their molecular phenotype, resulting in overexpression of several cell surface proteins. Gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRPR) and prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) are examples of such pro-teins that are expressed at a high density in prostate cancer. READ MORE

  2. 2. OXYTOCIN AND VASOPRESSIN IN UTERINE ACTIVITY. Receptor-mediated agonism and antagonism with special regard to the aetiology and treatment of preterm labour and primary dysmenorrhoea

    University dissertation from Thomas Bossmar, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Hospital, S-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Thomas Bossmar; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obstetrics; primary dysmenorrhoea.; preterm labour; vasopressin antagonist; receptors; oxytocin antagonist; vasopressin; Oxytocin; gynaecology; andrology; reproduction; sexuality; Obstetrik; gynekologi; andrologi; reproduktion; sexualitet;

    Abstract : With a view to the aetiology and treatment of preterm labour and primary dysmenorrhoea we studied the influence of sexual steroids on the plasma levels of oxytocin and vasopressin, effect of these peptides on uterine contractility in vitro and in vivo, receptor concentrations and antagonists to oxytocin and vasopressin. In postmenopausal women oestrogen increased the concentrations in plasma of both peptides, whereas progesterone increased oxytocin but decreased vasopressin levels. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bombesin Antagonists for Targeting Gastrin-Releasing Peptide Receptor-Positive Tumors Design, Synthesis, Preclinical Evaluation and Optimization of Imaging Agents

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Zohreh Varasteh; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bombesin; Gastrin-releasing peptide receptor GRPR ; Antagonist; Radionuclide molecular imaging;

    Abstract : This thesis is focused on the development, preclinical evaluation, and optimization of radiotracers for the detection of gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRPR)-expressing tumors. The work is divided into three distinct parts: (1) the development of bombesin (BN) antagonist (RM26)-based imaging radiotracers for the detection of GRPR-expressing tumors using different positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) radionuclides (68Ga, 18F and 111In), (2) the establishment of a method to monitor the ligand-G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) interaction in real time without requiring purification and stabilization of the receptors, and (3) the evaluation of radiopeptide structure-related factors (length of mini-PEG linker and composition of chelator for metal labeling) affecting the in vitro and in vivo characteristics of RM26-based tracers.

  4. 4. Molecular evolution of a C5aR antagonist against inflammatory disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

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

    Abstract : New anti-inflammatory drugs with fewer adverse effects than existing drugs may prove to be useful in the treatment of several inflammatory disorders. A critical step in acute inflammation is the infiltration of neutrophils into tissues. READ MORE

  5. 5. Systemic effects of occupational exposure to arsenic with special reference to peripheral circulation and nerve function

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Birgitta Json Lagerkvist; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [1989]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Arsenic toxicity; Cold-induced vasospasm; Finger systolic pressure; Nerve conduction velocity; Occupational exposure; Raynaud s phenomenon; Serotonin antagonist;

    Abstract : Smelter workers who were exposed to air-borne arsenic for a mean of 23 years, and age-matched referents, were examined with clinical, physiological, and neurophysiological methods. Exposure to arsenic in workroom air was estimated to have been around the Swedish occupational limits, which were 500 yg/m before 1975 and 50 yg/ra thereafter. READ MORE
