    Abstract : Successful clinical xenotransplantation, i.e., transplantation between species, would eliminate the shortage of donor organs. In order to study the acute cellular rejection reaction following discordant xenogeneic transplantation, an experimental pig-to- mouse islet xenotransplantation model was established. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cyclosporin A-induced gingival overgrowth in renal transplant patients : A clinical, histological and experimental study

    Author : Biniyam Wondimu; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; cyclosporin A gingival overgrowth gingival fibroblasts nephrotoxicity renal transplant saliva;

    Abstract : Cyclosporine A (CsA) is widely used as an effective immunosuppressive agent to prevent rejection of organ transplants, as well as in the treatment of patients with various autoimmune diseases. The clinical use of CsA, however, is associated with adverse side effects, including nephrotoxicity, hepatotoxicity, hypertension, and neurotoxicity as well as gingival overgrowth. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mitochondrial permeability transition following calcium overload. - Its role in neuronal cell death and potential as a pharmacological target

    Author : Magnus Hansson; Sektion IV; []

    Abstract : There is currently no clinically available drug with neuroprotective properties to limit the evolving cell death following e.g. stroke or traumatic brain injury. The mitochondrial permeability transition (mPT) is a potential pathological mechanism causing cell death in the CNS. READ MORE

  5. 5. Rejection and Immunosuppression at Uterus Transplantation: an experimental study in rodents
