  1. 1. Nitric Oxide in the Inner Ear with Particular Regard to Neurotansmission and Pharmacotherapy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Raul Popa; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Otorhinolaryngology; Otorhinolaryngologi; MEDICINE Surgery Otorhinolaryngology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Otorhinolaryngologi; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Research into nitric oxide (NO) in the inner ear has expanded explosively during recent years. There is evidence that NO is present in the various cochlear structures and its action is involved in physiological mechanisms, such as neurotransmission, and in pathological processes, e.g. ototoxicity.

  2. 2. Radioimmunotherapy in Experimental Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma Tumour-targeting in vitro and in vivo

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Junping Cheng; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Otorhinolaryngology; squamous cell carcinoma; radioimmunotherapy; cell line; tumour targeting; radionuclide; nude mice; Otorhinolaryngologi; MEDICINE Surgery Otorhinolaryngology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Otorhinolaryngologi;

    Abstract : Radioimmunotherapy (RIT) has been shown to be a practicable way to treat head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. A specific antibody recognizes the charasteristic structure of tumour cells when loaded with cytotoxic agents (toxins, drugs, radionuclides, etc). READ MORE

  3. 3. Developing otitis media experimental studies in particular regarding inflammatory changes in the tympanic membrane

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Per Olof Eriksson; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Otorhinolaryngology; otitis media with effusion; acute otitis media; myringotomy; tympanic membrane; rat; Streptococcus pneumoniae; compound 48 80; mast cell; Otorhinolaryngologi; MEDICINE Surgery Otorhinolaryngology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Otorhinolaryngologi; Oto-Rhino-Laryngology; oto-rhino-laryngologi;

    Abstract : Otitis media (OM), one of the commonest of childhood diseases, causes much suffering. OM exists in a variety of forms, two of which are acute otitis media (AOM) and otitis media with effusion (OME). READ MORE

  4. 4. The Round Window Membrane - Gateway to the Cochlea A Morphological and Electrophysiological study

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Leif Nordang; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Otorhinolaryngology; round window membrane; pseudomonas exotoxin; auditory brainstem response; hearing loss; endolymphatic sac; inner ear immunology; glutamate; nitric oxide inhibitor; glucocorticoid.; Otorhinolaryngologi; MEDICINE Surgery Otorhinolaryngology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Otorhinolaryngologi; Oto-Rhino-Laryngology; oto-rhino-laryngologi;

    Abstract : Topical treatment of several inner ear diseases through the round window membrane (RWM) might be feasible in the near future. Bacteria toxins, ototoxic drugs and noise trauma seem to harm the inner ear by a common pathway which involves, excessive outflow of the afferent neurotransmitter glutamate and formation of nitric oxide (NO), which can severely damage cells/nerve endings and lead to cell death.

  5. 5. The Human Spiral Ganglion

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Sven Tylstedt; Umeå universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Otorhinolaryngology; human spiral ganglion; ultrastructural morphology; neural interaction; synaptophysin; connexin; membrane specializations; synapse; gap junction; tight junction; Otorhinolaryngologi; MEDICINE Surgery Otorhinolaryngology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Otorhinolaryngologi; Oto-Rhino-Laryngology; oto-rhino-laryngologi;

    Abstract : Our knowledge of the fine structure of the Human Spiral Ganglion (HSG) is still inadequate and new treatment techniques for deafness using electric stimulation, call for further information and studies on the neuronal elements of the human cochlea. This thesis presents results of analyses of human cochlear tissue and specimens obtained during neurosurgical transpetrosal removal of life-threatening meningeomas. READ MORE
