  1. 1. Histamine and chromogranin A-derived peptides in rat stomach ECL cells

    Author : Per Norlén; Avdelningen för klinisk kemi och farmakologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pharmacy; pharmacognosy; Pharmacological sciences; CGRP adrenaline; galanin; VIP; PACAP; somatostatin; gastrin; microdialys; pancreastatin; chromogranin A; histamine; ECL cell; rat stomach; toxicology; Farmakologi; farmakognosi; farmaci; toxikologi; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Abstract : The ECL cells constitute the predominant endocrine cell population of the stomach. They secrete histamine which is a major stimulator of acid secretion. Chormogranin A (CgA)-derived peptides, such as pancreastatin, are co-secreted with histamine. READ MORE

  2. 2. Clinical and Experimental Studies on Inflammatory Bowel Disease with special emphasis on Collagenous Colitis

    Author : Michael Wagner; Marie Carlson; Maria Lampinen; Per Sangfelt; Erik Hertervig; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Collagenous colitis; inflammatory bowel disease; ulcerative colitis; Crohn´s disease; faecal markers; eosinophil; T-cells; ECP; EPX; MPO; calprotectin; flowcytometry; chromogranin A; chromogranin B; secretoneurin; budesonide; Gastroenterology; Gastroenterologi; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : This thesis describes studies in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and collagenous colitis (CC). We investigated mucosal eosinophil and neutrophil granulocytes and T-cells involved in the inflammatory processes and aimed at determining whether these processes are reflected in the faecal (F) contents of specific proteins secreted by cells in the intestinal mucosa.

  3. 3. Aspects on Diagnosis and Treatment of Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumours

    Author : Christina Swärd; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Carcinoid; Endocrine pancreatic tumour; Neuroendocrine; Octreotide; Somatostatin receptor; Peptide receptor; Radionuclide therapy; Absorbed dose; Chromogranin A; Liver transplantation;

    Abstract : Aspects on Diagnosis and Treatment of Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumours Background. Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP-NETs) originate from endocrine cells of the intestinal mucosa and pancreas. READ MORE

  4. 4. Midgut Carcinoid Tumours : New Diagnostic Procedures and Treatment

    Author : Staffan Welin; Eva T. Janson; Barbro Eriksson; Larry Kvols; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medicine; Midgut carcinoid tumour; Chromogranin A; Carcinoid heart disease; Survival; Octreotide pamoate; Tyrosine kinase receptors; Platelet derived growth factor receptor; Epidermal growth factor receptor; Medicin;

    Abstract : Midgut carcinoid tumours are rare with an incidence of 0.5-2.1/100 000. The primary tumour is usually small and grows slowly but has almost always set metastases at diagnosis. READ MORE

    Abstract : Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), originally described as carcinoids, represent a rare and heterogeneous group of neoplasms associated with intensive secretion of hormones, bioactive peptides and amines. Most of the patients are diagnosed at a late stage of disease, often with liver metastases. READ MORE
