  1. 1. Digital Image Analysis of Cells : Applications in 2D, 3D and Time

    Author : Amalka Pinidiyaarachchi; Carolina Wählby; Ewert Bengtsson; Arvid Lundervold; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Digital image analysis; microscopy; fluorescent staining; watershed segmentation; sub-cellular localization; point-like signals; wavelets; cell confluence; cytology; color spaces.; Image analysis; Bildanalys;

    Abstract : Light microscopes are essential research tools in biology and medicine. Cell and tissue staining methods have improved immensely over the years and microscopes are now equipped with digital image acquisition capabilities. The image data produced require development of specialized analysis methods. READ MORE

  2. 2. Tissue engineering for novel female infertillity treatments: studies on small and large animal models

    Author : Arvind M. Padma; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rat; sheep; tissue engineering; decellularization; recellularization;

    Abstract : Introduction: As with any transplantation (Tx) procedure, uterus Tx is associated with risky donor surgery and adverse side-effects from immunosuppression. With the aim to bypass these risks, this thesis investigated uterus tissue engineering strategies and the potential to develop a patient-specific uterus graft to replace the need for donor surgery and immunosuppression.

  3. 3. Regulation of human ovarian folliculogenesis in vitro

    Author : Inger Britt Carlsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Culture; follicle; folliculogenesis; GDF-9; AMH; c-Kit Kit Ligand; matrix; oocyte; ovary; TGF-beta;

    Abstract : Cryopreservation of ovarian tissue containing immature oocytes is one approach to preserving the potential fertility of young women who risk losing their oocytes as a consequence of treatment with anti-cancer agents, or genetic disorders. This cryopreserved tissue can then be transplanted back into the ovary when the woman wants to have children. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pichia pastoris as a platform for the production of therapeutic glycoproteins

    Author : Magnus Sjöblom; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : Recombinant protein therapeutics is a growing market within the human medical biotechnology industry. The majority of all approved biopharmaceuticals are protein based and includes for example blood factors, anticoagulants, hormones, vaccine and monoclonal antibodies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Generation and investigation of neural microenvironment in health and disease

    Author : Jakub Lewicki; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Cells in our body are under the constant influence of intrinsic and extrinsic factors that modulate their behavior. Early on, starting during the development of the organism, growth factors, nutrients, oxygen, the extracellular matrix and contact with other cells affect essential processes such as proliferation, migration, differentiation and apoptosis.
