  1. 1. Management of Ischemia and Brain Death-Associated Injuries in Porcine Kidney Grafts

    Author : Amir Sedigh; Tomas Lorant; Gunnar Tufveson; Olle Korsgren; Styrbjörn Friman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Organs from deceased donors after brain death (BD) remain the major source of organs for transplantation. The catastrophic event of BD and the inevitable consequences of ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) are linked to impaired graft quality and transplantation outcome. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies on renal progenitor cells and kidney cancer

    Author : Jennifer Hansson; Avdelningen för translationell cancerforskning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Kidney cancer and renal injuries affect millions of people in the world resulting in high patient morbidity and mortality, as well as one of the most extensive medical costs for society. Upon renal injury the kidney has an endogenous ability to repair damaged tubules and restore kidney function, provided that the patient receives adequate supportive care in time. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cadmium induced kidney dysfunction in rodents and its relevance to biomonitoring : experimental and environmental findings

    Author : Per Leffler; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Forestry; forest worker; chain saw; mechanization; rationalization; labour history; working life; technical change; cutting operation;

    Abstract : This study deals with how workers actively introduced a new technique to their own labour process. More specifically, it is concerned with how Swedish forest workers during the 1950s gradually replaced the manual one-man crosscut saw with the motor-driven saw. READ MORE

    Author : Ann-Charlotte Andersson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Glomerular damage accounts for the majority of chronic kidney disease cases, the prevalence of which is dramatically escalating worldwide, mainly due to increase in diabetes and associated nephropathy. The costs for treatment of CKD represent an enormous burden to the health care system. READ MORE

  5. 5. The physiological and microbiological response to renal UPEC infection

    Author : Keira Melican; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The pathological outcome of a bacterial infection depends on the interplay between the host s defences and the virulence arsenal of the pathogen. Appreciation of this interplay is crucial to the understanding of pathogenesis and the development of efficient clinical treatments. READ MORE
