  1. 1. Intra-Aneurysm Sac Pressure and Clinical Results after Endovascular Repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms

    University dissertation from Nuno Dias, Endovascular Center, Entrance 59, Malmö University Hospital, S-20502 Malmö

    Author : Nuno Dias; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Diagnostics; Diagnostik; Open Repair; EVAR; Endovascular Aneurysm Repair; Pressure; Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm;

    Abstract : AIM: The aim was to evaluate the results of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) in terms of intra-AAA pressure and clinical outcomes. METHODS AND RESULTS: 0.014-inch guide-wire-mounted tip-pressure sensors were used for direct intra-aneurysm sac pressure measurement (DISP) through translumbar puncture of the AAA. READ MORE

  2. 2. Role of MAIT cells in human antimicrobial immunity

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Huddinge

    Author : Joana Dias; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Mucosa-associated invariant T (MAIT) cells are a relatively recently discovered subset of unconventional T cells. In humans, MAIT cells are predominantly CD8+CD4- (CD8+) with a smaller CD8-CD4- (double-negative, DN) subset, and they are abundant in the peripheral blood, liver, and mucosal tissues. READ MORE

  3. 3. Spatial and temporal mechanisms of cell fate determination in the developing CNS

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology

    Author : José Dias; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The generation of neural cell diversity in the developing central nervous system relies on mechanisms that provide spatial and temporal information to neural progenitor cells. The deployment of morphogen gradients is an important strategy to impart spatial information to the field of responding cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. Diet and postmenopausal breast cancer - With a focus on low-grade inflammation

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Joana Alves Dias; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oxidative stress; low-grade inflammation; Biomarkers of inflammation; cytokines; ICC; variation; diet; dietary recommendations; diet quality index; food patterns; reduced rank regression; obesity; CVD; postmenopausal breast cancer; epidemiology; cross sectional; nested case-control;

    Abstract : Diet-breast cancer studies have shown that “healthy eating patterns” are associated with decreased risk whereas unhealthy patterns (especially those including alcohol) are associated with increased risk, particularly in postmenopausal women. The potential mechanisms behind the observed associations are still under investigation. READ MORE

  5. 5. To scar or not to scar : origin and function of fibrotic tissue in the central nervous system

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology

    Author : David Oliveira Dias; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : After injury, the adult mammalian central nervous system lacks long-distance axon regeneration, and insufficient repair results in the formation of a multicellular and compartmentalized scar. A great body of work has been dedicated to the study of the glial component of the scar, while the fibrotic lesion core has received less attention. READ MORE
