  1. 1. Acid transport through gastric mucus : A study in vivo in rats and mice

    Author : Mia Phillipson; Lena Holm; Henrik Sjövall; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology; gastric acid; pH-sensitive microelectrode; mucus; mucosal blood flow; nitric oxide; intravital microscopy; laser Doppler flowmetry; Fysiologi; Physiology; Fysiologi; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Abstract : The gastric mucosa is frequently exposed to endogenously secreted hydrochloric acid of high acidity. Gastric mucosal defense mechanisms are arranged at different levels of the gastric mucosa and must work in unison to maintain its integrity. READ MORE

  2. 2. Leukocytes in Angiogenesis : Learning from Transplanted Pancreatic Islets

    Author : Gustaf Christoffersson; Mia Phillipson; Kristian Pietras; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; angiogenesis; pancreatic islet transplantation; islets of Langerhans; diabetes mellitus; leukocytes; neutrophils; macrophages; pericytes; MMP-9; VEGF-A; Medical Science; Medicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels, is a complex process involving several cell types and molecular signals. Excessive vascular growth is a problem in tumors, and insufficient vascularization hampers the function of transplanted insulin-producing pancreatic islets. READ MORE

  3. 3. Engraftment of Pancreatic Islets in Alternative Transplantation Sites and the Feasibility of in vivo Monitoring of Native and Transplanted Beta-Cell Mass

    Author : Daniel Espes; Per-Ola Carlsson; Joey Lau; Mia Phillipson; Eelco de Koning; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 1 diabetes; Islet transplantation; Alternative implantation sites; Exendin-4; Positron Emission Tomography; 5-hydroxy tryptophan; Beta-cell mass; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Islet transplantation is a possible curative treatment for type 1 diabetes (T1D). Currently the liver dominates as implantation site, despite the many challenges encountered at this site.Acute hypoxia in islets transplanted to muscle and omentum, two possible alternative sites, was prevailing.

  4. 4. Auxiliary Cells for the Vascularization and Function of Endogenous and Transplanted Islets of Langerhans

    Author : Liza Grapensparr; Per-Ola Carlsson; Leif Jansson; Mia Phillipson; Aileen King; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Islets of Langerhans; beta cells; diabetes; transplantation; vascularization; Schwann cells; endothelial progenitor cells; neural crest stem cells; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Type 1 diabetes develops through the progressive destruction of the insulin-producing beta-cells. Regeneration or replacement of beta-cells is therefore needed to restore normal glucose homeostasis. Presently, normoglycemia can be achieved by the transplantation of whole pancreas or isolated islets of Langerhans. READ MORE

  5. 5. On macrophage contributions to tissue homeostasis : New insights on pancreas development and healing of ischemic injury

    Author : Carmen Herrera Hidalgo; Mia Phillipson; Andrés Hidalgo; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : macrophages; islets of Langerhans; β cell function; postnatal β cell maturation; hindlimb ischemia; blood flow regulation; mural cells; vessel pruning; diabetes mellitus; ischemic diseases;

    Abstract : Besides providing host defence against innumerable threats, macrophages display additional key functions for preservation of tissue homeostasis. This thesis includes four studies that explore novel macrophage functions in both the development of islets of Langerhans and healing of ischemic injury in mice. READ MORE
