  3. 3. HIV target cells and innate immune factors in the human female genital tract

    Author : Tove Kaldensjö; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : World-wide, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) transmission most often takes place in the genital tract during heterosexual intercourse, but the site where HIV most commonly establishes primary infection in the female genital tract remains unknown. Several factors including viral load in the HIV-infected individual, presence of genital infections, genotype and possibly sex hormone levels influence the risk of HIV acquisition. READ MORE

    Abstract : Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most malignant and also the most common form of brain tumour in humans. The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate morphological and diagnostics features in human GBM that may be of importance for prognosis and treatment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Peri-implantitis and periodontitis. Experimental and clinical studies

    Author : Olivier Carcuac; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dental implant; animal experiment; biopsy; radiology; histology; immunohistochemistry; inflammation; peri-implant disease; periodontal disease; treatment; systemic antibiotics; antiseptics;

    Abstract : Peri-implantitis is an increasing problem in implant dentistry. The current series of studies employed a translational approach with the aim to compare peri-implantitis and periodontitis lesions and evaluate the influence of implant surface characteristics and the adjunctive use of systemic antibiotics/local antiseptics on healing following surgical treatment of peri-implantitis.
