  1. 1. Corticosteroids in Lumbar Disc Surgery

    Author : Anders Lundin; Olle Nilsson; Björn Rydevik; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; lumbar disc heniation; corticosteroids; outcome; thermal quantitative sensory testing; QST; VAS; disability rating index; DRI; microscopic discectomy; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : In a prospective randomised double-blind study eighty patients with MRI verified lumbar disc herniation and corresponding clinical findings underwent microscopic disc removal. The patients were peroperatively given systemic and local corticosteroids or placebo, and followed for 2 years. READ MORE

  2. 2. Immunomodulatory properties of steroid hormones

    Author : Maria Taube; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; DTH; oestradiol; corticosteroids; T cells; SCID mice; adoptive transfer; thymus; spleen.;

    Abstract : Recent epidemiological, clinical and experimental evidence have suggested that steroid hormones play an important role in immune responses and in immune-mediated diseases. Many autoimmune diseases are treated with corticosteroids. READ MORE

  3. 3. Clinical and experimental studies in corticosteroid contact allergy

    Author : Marléne Isaksson; Yrkes- och miljödermatologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; venereologi; Dermatologi; venereology; Dermatology; inhalation; ROAT; mixes; hydrocortisone-17-butyrate; Corticosteroids; budesonide; tixocortol pivalate; dose-response relationship; clinical relevance; stability; allergic contact dermatitis;

    Abstract : Corticosteroids are anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative substances that also can induce sensitization, mainly through skin contact. In a sensitized individual, it can be hard to disclose the contact allergy at patch testing because the anti-inflammatory effect may mask the allergic contact reaction. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ultrastructural Studies of the Airway Epithelium in Airway Diseases

    Author : Eyman Shebani; Godfried M. Roomans; Marie Johannesson; Anil Mehta; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Morphology; asthma; cilia; corticosteroids; cytokines; desmosomes; Gaucher’s disease; montelukast; primary ciliary dyskinesia; transmission electron microscopy; Morfologi; Morphology; cell biology; pathology; Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi;

    Abstract : Ultrastructural studies of airway epithelium in airway disease are important for diagnosis and understanding the underlying pathology which helps clinicians to improve the patients' treatment.Airway biopsies from a 5-month old boy with respiratory problems and gastro-oesophageal reflux were studied by transmission electron microscopy (TEM).

  5. 5. Functional Aspects of Epithelia in Cystic Fibrosis and Asthma

    Author : Zhanna Servetnyk; Godfried Roomans; Michael Wilschansky; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Cell biology; cystic fibrosis; CFTR; chloride transport; airway epithelium; sweat gland; asthma; corticosteroids; montelukast; Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), a cAMP activated chloride channel in the apical membrane of epithelial cells, is defective in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). Research efforts are focused on chloride channel function in order to find a cure for the disease. READ MORE
