  1. 1. Curing Multiple Sclerosis How to do it and how to prove it

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Joachim Burman; Jan Fagius; Angelica Loskog; Sara Mangsbo; Paulo Muraro; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; biomarkers; cerebrospinal fluid; cytokines; hematopoietic stem cell transplantation; immunology; magnetic resonance imaging; multiple sclerosis; neuroimmunology; neurology; Neurology; Neurologi;

    Abstract : Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is a potentially curative treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS) with now more than 600 documented cases in the medical literature. Long-term remission can be achieved with this therapy, but when is it justified to claim that a patient is cured from MS? In attempt to answer this question, the outcome of the Swedish patients is described, mechanisms behind the therapeutic effect are discussed and new tools for demonstration of absence of disease have been developed.

  2. 2. Synaptic Integration of Hippocampal Neurons Generated in the Adult Brain: Influence of a Pathological Environment

    University dissertation from Neurology, Lund

    Author : Katherine Jakubs; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; Neurologi; synaptic plasticity; GABA; glutamate; GFP; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; hippocampus; dentate gyrus; neurogenesis; LPS; inflammation; epilepsy; SE; patch-clamp;

    Abstract : The adult brain constantly produces new neurons from endogenous neural progenitor cells located in at least two regions, the subgranular zone (SGZ) in dentate gyrus of the hippocampus, and the subventricular zone (SVZ). Major efforts are underway to discover the functional significance of new neurons in the adult brain. READ MORE

    Abstract : Since the introduction of levodopa for the treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD) 30 yearsago, the emergence of motor complications, such as levodopa-induced dyskinesias (LID), hasbeen a major clinical problem in advanced stages of the disease. Clinical and preclinical studieshave revealed a number of functional changes in the dopaminergic system that may be ofimportance for the emergence of LIDs. READ MORE
