  2. 2. Alpha-1-microglobulin, heme-binding protein, reductase and antioxidant

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Maria Allhorn; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reduction; inflammation; chronic ulcers; collagen; low density lipoproteins; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; antioxidation; heme; hemoglobin; alpha-1-microglobulin; lipocalin;

    Abstract : This thesis describes structural and functional studies of alpha-1-microglobulin (a1m), a 26 kDa plasma and tissue protein that is evolutionarily well-conserved and belongs to the lipocalin superfamily. The lipocalins are polypeptides of 160-190-amino acids that are folded into an 8-stranded beta-barrel forming a pocket with a hydrophobic interior. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as adjunctive treatment of chronic diabetic foot ulcers

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Magnus Löndahl; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hyperbaric oxygen therapy; Diabetes Mellitus; foot ulcer; HRQL; cardiac function;

    Abstract : Chronic diabetic foot ulcers are a source of major concern for both patients and health care systems. Oxygen deficiency plays a major role in the pathogenesis of these ulcers. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been proposed as a medical treatment for diabetic foot ulcers, but the clinical utility has not been established. READ MORE

  4. 4. Assessment of venous insufficiency in patients with chronic venous leg ulcers.Venous hemodynamics before and after surgery

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Marie Magnusson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]

    Abstract : Venous insufficiency in the legs is a common disease, which may be complicated by chronic leg ulcers in 1% among the population. Venous ulcer duration is often long compared to other aetiologies and for the patient it involves long periods of pain, discomfort and reduced quality of life. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular and morphological studies on non-healing venous leg ulcers

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Katarina Lundqvist; [2006]

    Abstract : Chronic skin ulcers are a major health problem and an increasing burden on health care providers. These ulcers have various underlying causes, such as venous or arterial insufficiency, diabetes, or vasculitis. Non-healing venous leg ulcers represent a condition characterized by excessive inflammation and presence of bacteria. READ MORE
