  1. 1. Neural Stem Cells - interaction with the brain and prospects for cell replacement therapy for Stroke

    Author : Emanuela Monni; Neural stamcellsbiologi och terapi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neural stem cells; human; fetus; cortex; striatum; stroke; transplantation; inflammation; fusion; reprogramming; chimera; heterokaryon;

    Abstract : Stroke is an acute neurological condition and the leading cause of disability in adult humans. Treatments for efficient recovery are not available. The most common form of stroke results from the occlusion of the middle cerebral artery, which causes loss of brain parenchyma and many types of neurons as well as astrocytes and oligodendrocytes.

  2. 2. Recombinant mucin-immunoglobulin chimeras as xenoreactive anti-pig antibody absorbers

    Author : Jining Liu; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Human allotransplantation is nowadays the generally accepted treatment of choice for several illnesses leading to organ failure. A major problem facing clinical organ transplantation is the lack of human donor organs and tissues. Xenotransplantation from pig to man is considered a plausible solution to this problem. READ MORE

  3. 3. Chemical basis of ABO subgroups

    Author : Lola Svensson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : ABO; subgroups; glycolipid; para-Forssman; Forssman; Forssman synthetase;

    Abstract : Despite the ABO histo-blood group system being the most biologically significant in humans the chemical structures that define its various phenotypes still remain largely unresolved. Like all blood group systems there is a significant range in the amount of antigen present on the red cells of an individual and there exists a range of so-called “weak” phenotypes represented by decreasing expression of A or B antigens.

  4. 4. Repression of transcription factor NF-[kappa]B by glucocorticoids : a molecular mechanism for their anti-inflammatory and immuno-modulatory effects

    Author : Johan Lidén; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : It has been known since the late 1940s that glucocorticoids (GCs) possess anti-inlammatory activity. Their various uses in the clinic include treatment of, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma and AIM skin diseases and also as means for avoiding rejection during transplantation. READ MORE
