    Abstract : Systemic amyloidoses are a group of lethal diseases where proteins aggregate into fibrillar structures, called amyloid fibrils, that deposits throughout the body. Transthyretin (TTR) causes one type of amyloidosis, in which the aggregates mainly infiltrate nervous and cardiac tissue. READ MORE

  3. 3. Electron Microscopy in Diagnostic Pathology with Reference to Mesenchymal Tumors

    University dissertation from Department of Histopathology, University Hospital, Lund, Sweden
