  1. 1. Eosinophil Cationic Protein : Expression Levels and Polymorphisms

    Author : Jonas Byström; Helene Rosenberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; Eosinophils; Neutrophils; Monocytes; Macrophages; mRNA; eosinophil cationic protein; DNA; polymorphism; Hodgkin Lymphoma; asthma; allergy; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : The eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) is usually associated with the eosinophil granulocyte. In this thesis the presence and production of this protein has been studied in two other cells. The circulating monocyte was found to contain ECP mRNA and small amounts of ECP, one thousand times less than that found in the eosinophil. READ MORE

However, chemotherapy is recommended for patients with risk factors and patients with metastatic disease. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sex steroid metabolism and body composition

    Author : Charlotte Swanson; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : UDP glucuronosyltranferases; polymorphisms; androgens; glucuronidated androgen metabolites; fat mass; bone; metabolic risk factors; population study;

    Abstract : Background: The bioactive androgens testosterone (T) and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) regulate bone and fat mass in men. The effects of androgens are largely determined by the rate of their synthesis and inactivation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Interactions between nutrition, obesity and the immune system

    Author : Louise Strandberg; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : obesity; nutrition; infection; polymorphisms; interleukin; fatty acids; fat mass; neutrophils; innate immunity; mortality;

    Abstract : There are several links between body fat and the immune system. For example, mice lacking activity of the pro-inflammatory interleukin-(IL)-1 and IL-6 develop obesity. Conversely, obesity is associated with adipose tissue inflammation and increased risk of infection. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aspects of Vitamin D : Prevalence of deficiency and impact on musculoskeletal parameters

    Author : Anne Björk; Östen Ljunggren; Gunnar Johansson; Andreas Kindmark; Anna Spångeus; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vitamin D; CYP2R1; Vitamin D receptor Gene; Polymorphisms; Muscle Strength; Endokrinologi och Diabetologi; Endocrinology and Diabetology;

    Abstract : Vitamin D is central in calcium turnover, and adequate levels are important for skeletal health. It is not clear how large contributions from food and sunlight are in Swedish primary care patients, considering the low radiation of UVB in Sweden and fortification of some foods, and whether differences exist between patients of immigrant and Swedish origin.
