  1. 1. Embryonic Stem Cells: Differentiation into Insulin Producing Cells and Elimination of Damaged Proteins

    University dissertation from Stem Cell Center, Lund University

    Author : Gabriella Brolén; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin människa och djur ; oxidatively damaged proteins; diabetes; carbonyl; C-peptide; Medicine human and vertebrates ; insulin; human embryonic stem cell; 20S proteasome; AGE; Pdx1; proinsulin;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish This thesis includes two different parts: One focusing on how to induce human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) to differentiate into insulin producing cells by following the normal pancreatic development pathway. These cells have then the potential to be an unlimited source for diabetes regenerative medicine. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Hjärtsjukdom som orsakas av skador på hjärtmuskelceller är en av de vanligaste dödsorsakerna världen över. En framtida önskvärd behandling vore att kunna stimulera kroppens egna förmåga att återskapa hjärtmuskelceller, eller att isolera hjärtmuskelceller framställda i cellkultur. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Patienter med diabetes kan inte kontrollera blodsockernivåerna på grund av att de saknar insulinproducerande celler eller har icke fungerande insulinproducerande celler. Det finns olika typer av diabetes där typ 1 diabetes och typ 2 diabetes är de vanligaste formerna. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cardiac cell identification and isolation

    University dissertation from Stem Cell Center, Lund University

    Author : Laura Tarnawski; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Identification and isolation of cardiomyocytes from the heart, embryonic stem cells, or induced pluripotent stem cells is a challenging task and will require specific isolation techniques. Less than 30% of the cells within the murine heart are cardiomyocytes and, what is more, there are multiple sub-populations of cardiomyocytes like atrial, ventricular and conduction system cardiomyocytes.

    Abstract : Abstract More than 300 million people are suffering from diabetes worldwide and the numbers of diabetic patients are increasing. Today´s treatments mainly rely on daily insulin injections. This help people to control blood glucose levels but still many patients suffer from the many complications associated with diabetes.
