    Abstract : Serum amyloid A protein (SAA) is an acute phase protein that has recently gained increasing interest as a potential marker for disease and treatment monitoring. We investigated SAA and CRP levels in (a) patients with various common infectious diseases (n=98), (b) patients with pyelonephritis (n=37) versus patients with cystitis (n=32), (c) healthy individuals of varying ages (n=231), (d) very immature newborn infants with or without nosocomial infections (NIs) (n=72) and (e) patients with bacterial infections treated with cefuroxime (n=81).

  3. 3. Features of adult neural progenitor cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Lisa Arvidsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adult neural progenitor cell;

    Abstract : The adult Central Nervous System (CNS) harbors neural progenitor cells (NPCs) in three areas: the subventricular zone (SVZ) of the lateral ventricles and the subgranular zone in the hippocampus and around the central canal in the spinal cord. The NPCs can be isolated and cultured in vitro. READ MORE

  4. 4. Herpesvirus infections in transplant recipients

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Jenny K Lindahl; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]

    Abstract : Abstract Herpesvirus infections are common and can cause serious and life-threatening conditions in transplanted individuals. In this thesis, consisting of 4 papers (I-IV), we investigated primary infection and reactivation of Cytomegalovirus (CMV), Human Herpesvirus type 6 (HHV-6), Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) and Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) in transplant patients.

  5. 5. Life-course influences on occurrence and outcome for stroke and coronary heart disease

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Cecilia Bergh; Scott Montgomery; Katja Fall; Ylva Nilsagård; Peter Appelros; Meena Kumari; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cardiovascular disease; stroke; risk factors; adolescence; stress resilience; adult infections; life-course epidemiology; cohort study;

    Abstract : Although typical clinical onset does not occur until adulthood, cardiovascular disease (CVD) may have a long natural history with accumulation of risks beginning in early life and continuing through childhood and into adolescence and adulthood. Therefore, it is important to adopt a life-course approach to explore accumulation of risks, as well as identifying age-defined windows of susceptibility, from early life to disease onset. READ MORE
