  1. 1. Regulation of apoptosis in the thyroid epithelium

    Author : Abeba Demelash; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Thyroid; Apoptosis; Caspase; Calpain; Hydrogen peroxide; TGF-beta; Staurosporine; Selenium; Cytochrome c;

    Abstract : Apoptosis or programmed cell death allows the multicellular organism to remove cells that are in excess or potentially dangerous. Apoptosis has to be strictly controlled, yet inappropriately activated or suppressed apoptototic may contribute to a variety of diseases, including cancer, autoimmune disorders and neurodegenerative conditions.

    Author : Fredrik Larsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; thyroid; adherens junction; E-cadherin; thyrotropin; cAMP; PKA; Epac; IQGAP;

    Abstract : Cell adhesion is one of multicellular organisms most fundamental features. Cells connect to each other by transmembrane proteins arranged in junction complexes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mapping genetic diseases in northern Sweden

    Author : Elisabet Einarsdottir; Dan Holmberg; Gösta Holmgren; Ulf Gyllensten; [2005]

    Abstract : The population of northern Sweden has previously been shown to be well suited for the mapping of monogenic diseases. In this thesis we have tested the hypothesis that this population could also be used for efficient identification of risk genes for common diseases. READ MORE

  4. 4. Thyroid function and iodine nutrition in women during pregnancy and in their neonates : Studies among Sudanese subjects

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Aboud Eltom; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obstetrics and gynaecology; odine; goitre; thyroid function; thyroglobulin; pregnancy; labour; newborns; Sweden; Sudan; Obstetrik och kvinnosjukdomar; MEDICINE Surgery Obstetrics and women s diseases; MEDICIN Kirurgi Obstetrik och kvinnosjukdomar; pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Abstract : The studies described in this thesis were carried out in Sudan and Sweden. Pregnant Sudanese women, who had a significantly lower urinary iodine concentration than their Swedish counterparts, showed significantly lower thyrotrophin (TSH) levels in weeks 36-39 of pregnancy and higher free thyroxine (FT4) levels both in weeks 20-24 and 36-39 of pregnancy than Swedish pregnant women.

  5. 5. Immunogenetic studies in autoimmune endocrine diseases

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine

    Author : Giovanni Gambelunghe; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type I Diabetes; LADA; Addison s disease; HLA; MICA; MICB; autoantibodies;

    Abstract : Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is an autoimmune disease characterised by Tlymphocyte infiltration of islets of Langerhans with consequent destruction of beta cells. A permissive genetic background is required for the development of the islet autoimmune process. READ MORE
