    Abstract : Background Animal models can be used to mimic human conditions of psychopathology, and also as pre-clinical models to evaluate candidate drugs. With hormonal treatment it is possible to produce behavior in the rat which corresponds to the mental symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), and pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). READ MORE

  2. 2. Gestational Diabetes, screening, diagnosis and prognosis

    University dissertation from Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Lund University

    Author : Anders E Åberg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obstetrik; reproduction; sexualitet; Gestational diabetes; sexuality; screening; diagnosis; gynekologi; prognosis; Obstetrics; andrology; gynaecology; reproduktion; andrologi;

    Abstract : Gestational diabetes (GD) is still a nonentity disease. There is no worldwide consensus how to define it or whether it is harmful to the woman or fetus. Therefore, from an ethical point of view, it is uncertain whether one should try to identify it. READ MORE

  3. 3. Blood pressure, renal functional and structural changes, in normal and preeclamptic pregnancy

    University dissertation from Helena Strevens, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Hospital, S-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Helena Strevens; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obstetrics; renal biopsy; renal function; pregnancy; preeclampsia; physiology; parity; endotheliosis; cystatin C; Blood pressure; BMI; gynaecology; andrology; reproduction; sexuality; Obstetrik; gynekologi; andrologi; reproduktion; sexualitet;

    Abstract : The kidneys play a pivotal role in the adaptive physiology of the pregnant woman, presenting some changes at term similar to the changes found in preeclampsia – a state of increased risk of fetal and maternal morbidity and mortality. The aim of these investigations was to explore possible similarities in blood pressure regulation, renal function and structure in normal term and preeclamptic pregnancy, to ascertain whether both conditions in fact are different degrees of an adaptive process in reaction to pregnancy.

  4. 4. OXYTOCIN AND VASOPRESSIN IN UTERINE ACTIVITY. Receptor-mediated agonism and antagonism with special regard to the aetiology and treatment of preterm labour and primary dysmenorrhoea

    University dissertation from Thomas Bossmar, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Hospital, S-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Thomas Bossmar; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obstetrics; primary dysmenorrhoea.; preterm labour; vasopressin antagonist; receptors; oxytocin antagonist; vasopressin; Oxytocin; gynaecology; andrology; reproduction; sexuality; Obstetrik; gynekologi; andrologi; reproduktion; sexualitet;

    Abstract : With a view to the aetiology and treatment of preterm labour and primary dysmenorrhoea we studied the influence of sexual steroids on the plasma levels of oxytocin and vasopressin, effect of these peptides on uterine contractility in vitro and in vivo, receptor concentrations and antagonists to oxytocin and vasopressin. In postmenopausal women oestrogen increased the concentrations in plasma of both peptides, whereas progesterone increased oxytocin but decreased vasopressin levels. READ MORE

  5. 5. PLASMA PROTEINS IN NORMAL AND PREECLAMPTIC PREGNANCY

    University dissertation from Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Lund University

    Author : Karl Kristensen; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; gynaecology; andrology; reproduction; sexuality; Obstetrik; Obstetrics; pregnancy; renal function; serum amyloid A protein; Clinical chemistry; Klinisk kemi; preeclampsia; beta-2 microglobulin; C-reactive protein; cystatin C; inflammation; placenta; beta trace protein; gynekologi; andrologi; reproduktion; sexualitet;

    Abstract : The aim of the research presented in this thesis was to provide extended background knowledge concerning several biochemical markers, used for the medical evaluation of pregnant women with suspected or confirmed preeclampsia, in order to improve the reliability of monitoring. Plasma levels of beta-2 microglobulin, cystatin C and beta trace protein are known to reflect renal filtration in non-pregnant settings, and the plasma proteins, C-reactive protein and serum amyloid A protein, are known to be sensitive markers of inflammation.
