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

    Author : Daniel Jan Lukes; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : 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

    Author : Leif Johnson; Lund Oftalmologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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

    Author : Ann-Sofie Hansson; Immunologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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. Orientation of fibres in suspensions flowing over a solid surface

    Author : Allan Carlsson; Daniel Söderberg; Fredrik Lundell; Staffan Toll; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fluid mechanics; fibre orientation; shear flow; fibre suspension; papermaking; Fluid mechanics; Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : The orientation of fibres suspended in a viscous fluid, flowing over a solid surface, has been studied experimentally. A shear layer was generated, by letting the suspension flow down an inclined plate. READ MORE

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

    Author : Linda Köhn; Irina Golovleva; Alison Hardcastle; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bothnia dystrophy; cone dustrophy; linkage analysis; mutation; PITPNM3; PRPF31; retinitis pigmentosa; RLBP1; Medical genetics; Medicinsk genetik; genetik; Genetics;

    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
