    Abstract : Hypothalamus (HT) is a brain structure which serves as a coordination center for several vital body functions. Craniopharyngioma (CP) is a pituitary tumor with high morbidity, primarily due to HT lesion. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cardiovascular mortality and morbidity in hypopituitary patients and metabolic effects of growth hormone treatment

    University dissertation from Department of Internal Medcine, University Hospital of Lund

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Sammanfattning på svenska ___________________________________________________________ I hypofysen bildas och frisätts hormoner vilka dels har en direkt verkan och dels styr andra körlars insöndring av hormon i kroppen. Den vanligaste orsaken till bristande hypofysfunktion (hypofysinsufficiens) hos vuxna patienter är tumörer belägna i hypofysen eller i hypofysens närhet. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bone health and cardiovascular risk in hypopituitary patients on complete hormone replacement, including GH

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Helene Holmer; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; sekretion; diabetologi; Endokrinologi; Craniopharyngioma; insulin tolerance test; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetology; cardiovascular risk; growth hormone deficiency; fracture incidence; bone mineral density; growth hormone replacement;

    Abstract : Growth hormone deficiency (GHD) is associated with decreased bone mineral density (BMD). Low BMD is correlated to increased fracture risk. There are no studies on fracture risk in GHD patients on GH therapy and no studies on BMD in adults with childhood onset (CO) craniopharyngioma (CP) on GH therapy. READ MORE

  4. 4. IGF-1R inhibition : A tool for functional studies of insulin-like growth factor family in malignant cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Oncology-Pathology

    Author : Daiana Vasilcanu; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; IGF-1R; chemoresistance; IR; glucose uptake; tyrosine kinase inhibitors;

    Abstract : Cancer cells generally posses the capability of overusing normal extracellular signaling for proliferation and/or antiapoptosis to create growth advantage over the normal cells. Major players in extracellular signaling are the growth factor receptors. Among them, an activated IGF-1R is important for the establishment of a malignant cell phenotype. READ MORE
