  1. 1. Swallowing dysfunction among older people in short-term care prevalence, effect of intervention, and risk of mortality

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Patricia Hägglund; Eva Levring Jäghagen; Per Wester; Mary Hägg; Karin Brunnegård; Per Östberg; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; swallowing disorder; dysphagia; elderly care; intermediate care; undernutrition; oral health; treatment; rehabilitation; quality of life; mortality risk; survival;

    Abstract : Objectives: Swallowing dysfunction (dysphagia) is a common, but often neglected condition among geriatric patients that can cause severe complications such as malnutrition, aspiration pneumonia and death. The aims of this thesis were to (i) describe the study design and method of the multidisciplinary and multicenter project SOFIA (Swallowing function, Oral health, and Food Intake in old Age), (ii) study the prevalence of and the relationship between swallowing dysfunction and risk of undernutrition among older individuals in short-term care, (iii) study the effect of oral neuromuscular training on swallowing dysfunction among older individuals, and (iv) to investigate the association between poor oral health, swallowing dysfunction and mortality.

  2. 2. SOD1 misfolding and aggregation in ALS in the light of conformation-specific antibodies

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Manuela Lehmann; Jonathan D. Gilthorpe; Stefan L. Marklund; Thomas Brännström; Ulrika Nordström; Elizabeth Fisher; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ALS; antibodies; SOD1; disordered SOD1; patient-derived models; low oxygen tension; Immunotherapy;

    Abstract : Mutations in the superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) gene are linked to the progressive neurodegenerative disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ALS-associated mutations affect the stability of the SOD1 protein and promote its unfolding. As a consequence, disordered SOD1 species can misfold and accumulate into insoluble aggregates. READ MORE

  3. 3. Chloride transport and inflammation in cystic fibrosis airways

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Georgia Varelogianni; Godfried Roomans; Marie Johannesson; Ólafur Baldersson; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cystic fibrosis; CFTR; chloride efflux; N-acetylcysteine; ambroxol; duramycin; Nod-like receptors; cytokines; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Cystic fibrosis (CF) is one of the most common lethal, autosomal recessive inherited diseases among Caucasians. It is caused by a mutation in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), a chloride channel activated by cyclic AMP. READ MORE

  4. 4. Congenital Recessive Ichthyosis Studies of Gene Expressions Related to Keratinocyte Differentiation and Skin Barrier Repair

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Hanqian Zhang; Hans Törmä; Anders Vahlquist; Marie Virtanen; Mikael Ivarsson; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; genodermatoses; oligoarray; trancriptomics; transglutaminase-1; cornified envelope; peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor δ; all-trans retinoic acids.; Dermatologi och venereologi; Dermatology and Venerology;

    Abstract : Autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis (ARCI) is a rare monogenetic disorder characterized by a defective skin barrier, hyperkeratosis, and dry, scaly skin. It affects keratinocyte differentiation and is caused by mutations in any of at least 12 genes believed to control the formation of ω-O-acylceramide and the corneocyte lipid envelope (CLE): ABCA12, ALOXE3, ALOX12B, CERS3, CYP4F22, ELOVL4, LIPN, NIPAL4, PNPLA1, SDR9C7, SLC27A4, and TGM1.
