  1. 1. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). Aspects on immune and endocrine mechanisms

    Author : Anders Enskog; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; controlled ovarian hyperstimulation; cytokine; inhibin; interleukin-10; in vitro fertilisation; ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome; nitric oxide; vascular endothelial growth factor;

    Abstract : The ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a well-known side effect of ovarian stimulation for ovulation induction or for in vitro fertilisation. The syndrome is characterised by massively enlarged ovaries and a hyperpermeable/procoagulant state, giving rise to diverse symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, ascites, hypovolemia and thromboembolism.

    Abstract : The use of microdialysis sampling and flow immunochemical detection as well as MALDI-TOF MS for peptide and protein analysis is described. Sampling of peptides and smaller proteins was investigated with different membranes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploration of Conditions Affecting Cytokine Production in Experimental Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

    Author : Lina Thorvaldson; Stellan Sandler; Michael Welsh; Maria Holstad; Maria Faresjö; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Cell biology; Cytokine; Diabetes; Tumor necrosis factor-α; Interferon-γ; Interleukin-4; Interleukin-10; Transplantation; Pancreatic islet; Glucose; Regulatory T cell; Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Cytokines are soluble signalling mediators within the immune system, and have been shown to be of importance in the development of type 1 diabetes (T1D). This thesis studied the production of cytokines in experimental models of T1D and during transplantation of insulin-producing islets of Langerhans. READ MORE

  4. 4. Tumor recognition by cytotoxic T cells. : Definition of new tumor antigens and the effect of interleukin-10 on antigen presentation

    Author : Flavio Salazar-Onfray; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The tumor antigens against which T cell responses have been demonstrated most frequently are not tumor specific but are also expressed on normal tissues. This observation has been interpreted as evidence for breaking of immunological tolerance to normal cellular proteins. READ MORE

  5. 5. Clinical aspects of arterial wall stiffness with a focus on abdominal aortic aneurysm

    Author : Ida Åström Malm; Peter Blomstrand; Rachel De Basso; Niclas Bjarnegård; Per Lindqvist; Jönköping University; []
