  1. 1. TRAF6, a key regulator of TGFβ-induced oncogenesis in prostate cancer

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Reshma Sundar; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TβRI; TGFβ; TACE; TRAF6; PS1; PKCζ; TβRI-ICD; NICD; Smad; non-Smad; prostate cancer; Snail1; MMP; p300; p21; PAI1; ubiquitination; cleavage; ICD; invasion; HES1; signaling; patologi; Pathology;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, with the incidence rapidly increasing in Europe over the past two decades. Reliable biomarkers for prostate cancer are currently unavailable. Thus, there is an urgent need for improved biomarkers to diagnose prostate cancer at an early stage and to determine the best treatment options. READ MORE

  2. 2. On the causes of ventricular arrhythmia, its treatment and outcome

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Christina M Holmgren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiac arrest; ICD; ventricular arrhythmia;

    Abstract : On the causes of ventricular arrhythmia, its treatment and outcome Christina Holmgren Institute of Medicine Sahlgrenska Academy at University of Gothenburg Göteborg, Sweden ABSTRACT Background: Ventricular arrhythmia is the most common aetiology of sudden cardiac death. Death can sometimes be prevented by the implantation of a defibrillator (ICD). READ MORE

  3. 3. Living with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator : Swedish and US patients' experiences of their life situation

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Kärstin Bolse; Högskolan i Halmstad.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CHD; ICD-implantation; MUIS; life situation; QLI; Quality of life; phenomenography; satisfaction; uncertainty; Implantable defibrillators; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; . ICD-implantation;

    Abstract : The general aim of this study was to describe changes in uncertainty and satisfaction as well as to explore how patients with an ICD experience their life situation over a two year period. The design was explorative and descriptive, combining both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Data were collected from two locations, Sweden and the US. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aqueous Solutions as seen through an Electron Spectrometer Surface Structure, Hydration Motifs and Ultrafast Charge Delocalization Dynamics

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Niklas Ottosson; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Water; Aqueous solutions; Ions; Molecular Hydration; Electron dynamics; Atmospheric Chemistry; Hydrolysis; Acid-Base Chemistry; Interatomic Coulombic Decay; ICD; Liquid Micro-Jet; X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy; XPS; Auger Electron Spectroscopy; AES; MAX-lab; BESSY; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik; Physics with spec. in Atomic; Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics; Fysik med inriktning mot atom- molekyl- och kondenserande materiens fysik;

    Abstract : In spite of their high abundance and importance, aqueous systems are enigmatic on the microscopic scale. In order to obtain information about their geometrical and electronic structure, simple aqueous solutions have been studied experimentally by photo- and Auger electron spectroscopy using the novel liquid micro-jet technique in conjunction with synchrotron radiation.
