  1. 1. Mitochondrial and chromosomal genomics in type 2 diabetes

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Avinash Abhyankar; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adaptive evolution; nuclear-mitochondrial interaction; linkage analysis; QTL; phylogenetic analysis; congenic; type 2 diabetes; GK rat;

    Abstract : Understanding the mechanisms of complex polygenic diseases like type 2 diabetes (T2D) is as complex as their nature. Cellular processes involved in glucose homeostasis need high and reliable energy supply. Mitochondria are the major energy producers in mammalian cells. READ MORE

  2. 2. Identification of Arthritis Regulating Genes in Rats

    University dissertation from Peter Olofsson Kulgränden 11D 22649 Lund

    Author : Peter Olofsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish När vi drabbas av infektioner är det immunförsvaret som ser till att de invaderande organismerna oskadliggörs. För att immunförvaret skall veta vilka organismer och celler som skall attackeras måste det kunna skilja på kroppseget och främmande. READ MORE

  3. 3. Targeting Non-obvious Errors in Death Certificates

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lars Age Johansson; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Social medicine; Cause of death; Death certificates; Medical records; Mortality statistics; Quality control; Medical record linkage; Socialmedicin;

    Abstract : Mortality statistics are much used although their accuracy is often questioned. Producers of mortality statistics check for errors in death certification but current methods only capture obvious mistakes. This thesis investigates whether non-obvious errors can be found by linking death certificates to hospital discharge data. READ MORE

  4. 4. Diagnostic Evaluation of Schizophrenia for Genetic Studies

    University dissertation from Umeå : Klinisk vetenskap

    Author : Birgit Ekholm; Umeå universitet.; [2005]

    Abstract : Schizophrenia is one of the most severe mental disorders. Heredity is accepted as a major causative factor. To find molecular mechanisms behind schizophrenia, patient materials with reliable and valid diagnoses must be identified. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic Factors and Nasal Tolerance in Rat Models for Rheumatoid Arthritis

    University dissertation from Medical Inflammation Research, Department of Experimental Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Shemin Lu; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2002]
