  1. 1. New Biomarkers for Neuromuscular Function and Myasthenia Gravis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Carl Johan Molin; Anna Rostedt Punga; Johan Widenfalk; Nils Hailer; Jan Verschuuren; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomarkers; myasthenia gravis; neuromuscular function; neurophysiology;

    Abstract : Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disorder, which is caused by autoantibodies against the acetylcholine receptor (AChR). The cardinal symptom is muscle fatigue, which can range from slight weakness of the extraocular muscles (causing droopy eyelids or double vision), to paralysis of the respiratory muscles. READ MORE

  2. 2. Invasive treatment of renal artery stenosis - effects on blood pressure, medication, renal function and inflammatory biomarkers

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Cardiovascular system; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; inflammatory biomarkers; renal artery stenosis; Renovascular hypertension; percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty; mean pressure gradient;

    Abstract : Renal artery stenosis (RAS) causes hypertension, decreased glomerular filteration rate (GFR), and renal ischemia. RAS is progressive and causes 5-16% of all cases of renal failure. Prevalence of RAS in patients with hypertension is 1-5%. READ MORE

    Abstract : Tendon injuries and tendinopathy are common disorders, but the underlying mechanisms are not well understood. The overall aim of this thesis was to better understand the mechanisms underlying tendon healing, pain, and inflammation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Serological and faecal biomarkers in inflammatory bowel disease

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Abstract : The inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, are relapsing and remitting disorders characterised by chronic inflammation at various sites in the gastrointestinal tract, resulting in diarrhoea and abdominal pain. Neither the aetiology nor the pathophysiology is yet fully understood, and there is currently no cure. READ MORE

  5. 5. Psoriatic arthritis: a complex disease analyses on genetic and serological biomarkers and of comorbidity
