    Author : Henrik Borg; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetology; Endokrinologi; secreting systems; Endocrinology; seropositive; seronegative; slowly-progressive; Type 2; Type 1; classification; IA-2A; IA-2; GADA; GAD; ICA; islet antibodies; C-peptide; beta cell function; diabetes mellitus; adult-onset; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Vid Typ 1 diabetes mellitus (insulinberoende, [ungdoms]) förlorar kroppen förmågan att tillverka insulin, det hormon som styr upptaget av socker i kroppens celler. Insulinet bildas av bukspottskörtelns hormonproducerande betaceller, och Typ 1 diabetes orsakas av att dessa celler skadas och förstörs. READ MORE

  2. 2. Radiological studies of LMNB1-related autosomal dominant leukodystrophy and Marinesco-Sjögren syndrome

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johannes Finnsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Leukoencephalopathies; hereditary central nervous system demyelinating diseases; autonomic dysfunction; adult-onset; neuromuscular disease; pediatric; neuro-ophtalmology; ataxia;

    Abstract : There are approximately 6000 to 8000 rare diseases, each with a prevalence of less than 1 / 10 000, but in aggregate affecting 6 to 8% of the population. It is important to evaluate disease development and progression to know the natural course of any disease. READ MORE

  3. 3. Immunoregulatory differences between adult onset type 1 diabetes and latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA)

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Autoimmun diabetes karakteriseras av cell medierad autoimmunitet mot insulinproducerande beta celler i Langerhanska öar. Typ 1 diabetes är den största typen av diabetes i barn och ungdomar och antas vara orsakad av Th1-cell drivet angrepp av beta celler. READ MORE

  4. 4. Long-term effects of growth hormone replacement therapy in growth hormone deficient adults

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; growth hormone; body composition; bone mass; bone density; muscle strength; lipids; glucose metabolism; adult onset GHD; childhood onset GHD; gender;

    Abstract : Deficiency of growth hormone (GHD) in adults results in abnormal body composition, reduced bone mass and muscle strength, deteriorated cardiovascular risk factors. Short-term GH replacement reverses many of the symptoms associated with adult GHD. READ MORE

  5. 5. Identification of Candidate Genes in Four Human Disorders

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Malin Melin; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Genetics; Ichthyosis; Leukodystrophy; Kostmann disease; Autism; Genetic disorders; Candidate gene; Genetik;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis has been to identify genes and gene regions underlying four different disorders. In papers I-IV, positional cloning methods, such as linkage, association and haplotype analysis have been used for the identification of genomic regions associated with the ichthyosis prematurity syndrome (IPS), adult-onset autosomal dominant leukodystrophy (ADLD) and Kostmann disease.
