  1. 1. Muscle function in Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis A two-year follow-up

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Hans Lindehammar; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Östergötlands Läns Landsting.; [2004]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; arthritis; juvenile rheumatoid; physiopathology; muscle; skeletal; pathology; physiopathology; Muscular atrophy; etiology; physiopathology; arthritis; juvenile rheumatoid; complications; VETERINARY MEDICINE Medicine; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Medicin;

    Abstract : This is a study of muscle function in Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a disease that primarily affects the synovial membrane of joints. Muscle weakness, atrophy and pain occur in adult RA. This may be a consequence of joint pain, stiffness and immobility. READ MORE

  2. 2. Satellite cells in human skeletal muscle molecular identification quantification and function

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Mona Lindström; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; satellite cell markers; NCAM; Pax7; MyoD; myogenin; DLK1 FA1; c-Met; human skeletal muscle; immunohistochemistry; muscle growth; muscle hypertrophy; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Skeletal muscle satellite cells located between the plasma membrane and the basal lamina of muscle fibres, could for many years, only be studied in situ by electron microscopy. The introduction of immunohistochemistry and the discovery of molecular markers of satellite cells then made them accessible for light microscopic studies and a wealth of information is today available.

  3. 3. The role of 5 -nucleotidases and deoxynucleoside kinases in responses to nucleoside analogues

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

    Author : Saeedeh Mirzaee; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]

    Abstract : The efficacy of nucleoside analogues (NAs) in treating several hematological malignancies, solid tumors and viral infections is limited primarily by side-effects and the development of drug resistance. The aims of the present thesis were to elucidate mechanism(s) involved in tissue-specific toxicity associated with NA therapy, as well as the mechanisms underlying resistance to these drugs.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Huntingtons sjukdom (HS) är en ärftlig hjärnsjukdom utan botemedel. Den orsakas av en mutation i en gen som kallas huntingtin. Den klassas som en s.k. READ MORE

  5. 5. Muscle diseases with damaged sarcomeres - causes and consequences

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Monica Ohlsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; congenital myopathy; nemaline myopathy; cap disease; hereditary myopathy with early respiratory failure; myofibrillar myopathy; ACTA1; TPM2; TPM3; TTN;

    Abstract : Muscle diseases, also called myopathies, are usually defined as diseases where the pathology is confined to the muscle itself. This excludes diseases caused by structural abnormalities in the peripheral nerve, from the anterior horn cell to the neuromuscular junction. READ MORE
