    Abstract : Islet transplantation has found its niche in diabetes treatment. It has contributed to a better quality of life and better glycemic control of patients with diabetes suffering from severe hypoglycemia that are not eligible for vascularized pancreas transplantation. Islet isolation is a technically challenging procedure. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ghrelin and CART. Two new islet peptides. Expression, regulation and function

    Author : Nils Wierup; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetology; histology; endocrinology; islets; CART; Ghrelin cells; insulin secretion; type-2 diabetes; Ghrelin;

    Abstract : Until recently, the islets of Langerhans were thought to harbour four main cell types characterised with respect to principal hormone product. Here we show that the novel hormone ghrelin is expressed in a fifth islet cell type, the islet ghrelin cell, in humans and rodents. READ MORE

  3. 3. Estrogen and Glucocorticoid Metabolism

    Author : Therése Andersson; Tommy Olsson; Cecilia Mattsson; Ingegerd Söderström; Jonas Burén; Agneta Holmäng; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Background: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death among women in Sweden. The risk of CVD increases rapidly after the menopause. A major contributing factor may be the redistribution of adipose tissue, from the peripheral to central depots, associated with menopause. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetic Factors Contributing to Hypertension. With Emphasis on Hypertension in Type 2 Diabetes

    Author : Kristina Bengtsson Boström; diabetes och endokrinologi Genomik; []

    Abstract : The causes of hypertension (HT) and type 2 diabetes (T2DM) are mainly unknown, but they arise from interplay between several genetic and environmental factors. The aim of this thesis was to investigate whether polymorphisms in putative candidate genes for HT increase the susceptibility to HT and/or T2DM. READ MORE

  5. 5. Epidemiology of diabetes in a well defined population in Sweden: the Skaraborg Diabetes Registry

    Author : Bo Berger; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []

    Abstract : Time trends in prevalence, incidence and mortality was followed in 15000 diabetic patients in 1991?2005. Clinical findings, C-peptide protocols, and islet antibodies were compared in their ability to distinguish type 1 from type 2 diabetes, and factors associated with the prognosis of diabetes were explored.
