  1. 1. Antigen-specific islet antibodies: prediction of beta cell failure and differentiation between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes

    University dissertation from Henrik Borg, Wallenberg Laboratory, Entrance 46 2nd floor, Malmö University Hospital, SE-205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Henrik Borg; [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 : Autoantibodies against glutamic acid decarboxylase (GADA), protein tyrosine-phosphatase-like protein (IAÐ2A), and/or pancreatic islet cells (ICA) are autoimmune markers usually present at diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is therefore in general believed to be caused by an immune-mediated beta cell destruction. READ MORE

  2. 2. The female offender patterning of antisocial and criminal behaviour over the life-course

    University dissertation from Malmö University, Faculty of Health and Society

    Author : Frida Andersson; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; criminal career; female offending; trajectories; sex differences; adult onset; chronics; life-course;

    Abstract : The studies included in the thesis illustrate the patterning of female offending over the life course. The overarching aim is to contribute to a better understanding of the female offender and of the heterogeneity in female criminal offending trajectories over the life course, and also of factors that differentiate between these trajectories.

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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johannes Finnsson; Raili Raininko; Eva Kumlien; Isabella Björkman-Burtscher; [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

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

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Hillman; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi; diabetology; secreting systems; Isotype class switch; Endocrinology; LADA; Autoantibodies; Autoimmunity; Type 1 diabetes;

    Abstract : Autoimmune diabetes is characterized by cell mediated autoimmunity against insulin producing beta cells in pancreatic islets. Type 1 diabetes is the major cause of diabetes in children and adolescents and is believed to be mediated by a Thl driven destruction of beta cells. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Galina Götherström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    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
