  1. 1. Early growth, retinopathy of prematurity and insulin-like growth factors in preterm infants

    Author : Eva Engström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Preterm; ROP; nutrition; growth; growth restriction; IGF-I; IGF-II; IGFBP-3;

    Abstract : Aims:Paper I: To perform measurements of the lower leg length (LLL) in preterm infants, compare and evaluate handling error and precision of two instruments, and estimate the time required to show growth.Paper II-IV: To investigate whether low postnatal levels of serum IGF-I are associated with abnormal retinal vessel development.

  2. 2. Pre-, peri- and postnatal influences on ophthalmologic outcome - a study on children born after intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and children born preterm

    Author : Margareta Hök Wikstrand; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; visual function; intracytoplasmic sperm injection; preterm birth; growth; insulin-like growth factor 1; postnatal development; ocular fundus morphology;

    Abstract : The aims of the present study were to investigate the effects of prenatal factors in children born after intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and peri- and postnatal factors in children born preterm on visual function and ocular fundus morphology at school age. In the children born preterm the ophthalmologic outcomes, including optic nerve morphology were analysed in relation to gestational age (GA), birth weight (BW) standard deviation score (SDS), serum levels of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I), weight at week 32 (SDS), and weight, length and head circumference (SDS) at school age.

  3. 3. The impact of nutrition on growth, biomarkers, and health outcomes in preterm infants

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Cornelia Späth; Umeå universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Preterm infant; parenteral nutrition; energy intake; nutrient intakes; postnatal growth; electrolyte imbalances; sodium supply; hypernatremia; intraventricular hemorrhage; pediatrik; Pediatrics; Nutrition; näringslära;

    Abstract : Introduction: Nutrients play a crucial role for growth and brain development after preterm birth. Meeting the nutritional needs of preterm infants is challenging. Particularly, the most immature infants have a high risk of malnutrition and poor growth during hospital care. READ MORE

  4. 4. Growth factors in spermatogenesis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Women's and Children's Health

    Author : Aida Wahlgren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Testis; seminiferous tubules; proliferation; growth factors; sex steroids;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to increase the knowledge of die effects of locally produced growth factors and hormones on germ cell proliferation in rat testis in vitro. Since impaired sperm production and function accounts for half the cases of infertility, it is important to understand the physiological actions in germ cell development. READ MORE

  5. 5. Born Small for Gestational Age Beyond Size at Birth

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Linda Lindström; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Small for Gestational Age; SGA; Epidemiology; Pregnancy; Postnatal growth; Intrauterine growth restriction; Chronic hypertension; School performance; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Children born small for gestational age (SGA) run increased risk of perinatal morbidity and mortality, but also of long-term health impairment. Risks on long term may vary depending on postnatal growth patterns. READ MORE
