    Author : Marianne Jarfelt; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia; adult survivor; GH secretion; body composition; bone mineral density; exercise echocardiography;

    Abstract : Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) is the most common malignancy in children. The 5-year survival rate has gradually increased from 5% in early 1970s to over 80% today. Until now most patients have been discharged from further follow up after puberty. READ MORE

  2. 2. The GH-IGF-1 Axis in Postmenopausal Women with Abdominal Obesity

    Author : Celina Franco Ramos; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Abdominal obesity is associated with blunted growth hormone (GH) secretion. GH treatment in abdominally obese men reduces visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and improves the metabolic profile. READ MORE

  3. 3. Structural and functional studies of glycoside hydrolase family 12 enzymes from Trichoderma reesei and other cellulolytic microorganisms

    Author : Mats Sandgren; Alwyn Jones; Juha Rouvinen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Cellulose is the most abundant organic compound on earth. A wide range of highly specialized microorganisms, have evolved that utilize cellulose as carbon and energy source. Enzymes called cellulases, produced by these cellulolytic organisms, perform the major part of cellulose degradation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Long-acting insulin analogs in type 1 diabetes : effects on metabolic control, endogenous insulin production and the GH-IGF-axis

    Author : Jenny Salemyr; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The treatment goal in type 1 diabetes is to achieve near-normal glycemia. Despite of the advancements of subcutaneous insulin therapy and glucose monitoring, metabolic control is not fully normalized and secondary endocrine disturbances in the growth-hormone (GH) - Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF)-axis are important for the deterioration of metabolic control, particularly in children at puberty.
