    Abstract : To facilitate early diagnosis of diseases and elucidation of the processes involved in their development and progression, various specific compounds or ‘biomarkers’ are often monitored. The first step is to decide which compounds to analyze. READ MORE

  2. 2. Acute Pancreatitis. Biomarkers and radiology assessment

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Hanna Sternby; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acute pancreatitis; severity grade; Biomarkers; morphology; classification; radiology assessment; Acute pancreatitis; severity grade; Biomarkers; morphology; classification; radiology assessment;

    Abstract : Background: Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a common and potentially severe disease. Early identification of severity grade is crucial for the outcome of the patient. For study approaches and comparison of inter-institutional data the AP patients need to be uniformly classified. READ MORE

  3. 3. Polyurethane - occupational exposure, biomarkers and symptoms

    University dissertation from (Margareta Littorin), Department of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, University Hospital, S- 221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Margareta Littorin; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; spray; polyurethane; nose; metabolites; lung function ; lower airways; inflammation; heat; glue; genetic polymorphism; di isocyanate; Antibodies; biomarkers; Occupational health; industrial medicine; Yrkesmedicin; arbetsmiljömedicin; symptoms;

    Abstract : Isocyanates may cause occupational asthma, rhinitis, and hypersensitivity pneumonitis. However, the mechanisms behind initiation of the disorders and the relations between exposure and effect are insufficiently elucidated. Means to biomonitor exposure and risk would be valuable.

  4. 4. Cerebral biomarkers in women with preeclampsia

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lina Bergman; Helena Åkerud; Anna Karin Wikström; Johan Wikström; Eva Britta Råssjö; Ulf Högberg; Marc Spandermaan; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; preeclampsia; eclampsia; biomarkers; S100B; NSE; PRES; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Preeclampsia and eclampsia are among the most common causes of maternal and fetal mortality and morbidity worldwide. There are no reliable means to predict eclampsia or cerebral edema in women with preeclampsia and knowledge of the brain involvement in preeclampsia is still limited. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biomarkers of aromatic isocyanates in exposed workers

    University dissertation from Divison of Occupational and Environmental Medicine and Psychiatric Epidemiology

    Author : Pernilla Lind; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adducts; biomarkers; exposure; occupational; methylenediphenyl diisocyanate; toluene diisocyanate; amines; isocyanates; polyurethane; Gas chromatography; mass spectrometry; Occupational health; industrial medicine; Yrkesmedicin; arbetsmiljömedicin;

    Abstract : The aromatic isocyanates, toluene diisocyanate (TDI) and methylenediphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), are used in the production of polyurethane (PUR) foams, paints, elastomers and glues. The use of isocyanates is increasing, and exposure to isocyanates is the most common cause of occupational asthma. READ MORE
