  1. 1. On ischemia/reperfusion injury and rejection in concordant xenotransplantation to the rat

    Author : Daniel Jan Lukes; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Concordant; xenotransplantation; rat; hamster; mouse; rejection; necrosis; PCr; ß-ATP; ROS; SOE light; I RP; IPC;

    Abstract : Studies in concordant (without preformed antibodies) rodent xenotransplantation (transplantation between species) models have focused, to date, on immunological disparities. In allotransplantation (transplantation within species), there is evidence suggesting that early ischemic events may contribute to later rejection episodes and to the development of chronicrejection features.

  2. 2. Intracellular mechanisms in rd1 mouse retinal degeneration

    University dissertation from Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Leif Johnson; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ophtalmology; Neuroprotection; Photoreceptor; Retinitis Pigmentosa; Oftalmologi;

    Abstract : Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is an inherited disorder and the leading cause of visual impairment in the working age population. It is caused by a number of different genetic mutations, all of which cause the rod photoreceptors to degenerate. As the rods become few in numbers, the cones will also begin to die, resulting in total blindness. READ MORE

  3. 3. New models for relapsing polychondritis and rheumatoid arthritis : focus on the tissue specific immune response

    University dissertation from Medical Inflammation Research, Department of Experimental Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Ann-Sofie Hansson; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; relapsing polychondritis rheumatoid arthritis matrilin-1 collagen model; Clinical biology; Klinisk biologi;

    Abstract : Relapsing polychondritis (RP) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are autoimmune diseases where an inappropriate immune response destroys cartilage. In RP, the ears, larynx, nose and joints are affected, while the most prominent sign of RA is arthritis. READ MORE

  4. 4. The effect of spatial and temporal dose distributions on radiation-induced side effects in the lung

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Oncology-Pathology

    Author : Berit Wennberg; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : In radiotherapy (RT), the aim is to kill all malignant cells in a tumor or to render them incapable of further division and multiplication without producing damage to the normal tissues surrounding the tumor. To achieve this, both the spatial and temporal distribution of dose delivery are important for optimizing the treatment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic mapping of retinal degenerations in Northern Sweden

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Linda Köhn; Irina Golovleva; Alison Hardcastle; [2009]

    Abstract : Inherited retinal degenerations are a group of disorders characterised by great genetic heterogeneity. Clinically, they can be divided into two large groups of diseases, those associated with night blindness, e.g. retinitis pigmentosa (RP), and those with macular malfunction, e. READ MORE
