  1. 1. Experimental studies on ovarian cryopreservation and transplantation

    Author : Milan Milenkovic; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cryopreservation; ovary; transplantation; animal models;

    Abstract : Around 8% of all cancer victims are below 40 years of age and the survival after cancer treatment during childhood and reproductive years has increased considerably to be around 80% today. The clinical field of fertility preservation has emerged to enable cancer patients that are treated with potentially gonadotoxic chemotherapy-radiotherapy during childhood or reproductive ages, to preserve their fertility.

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Agneta Skoog Svanberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Caring sciences; attitude; cryopreservation; discarding; disclosure; distress; emotion; gender; infertility; in vitro fertilization; oocyte donation; psychology; public; Vårdvetenskap; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Caring sciences; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Vårdvetenskap; Obstetrics and Gynaecology; obstetrik och gynekologi;

    Abstract : The main aims were to investigate emotional reactions during in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment among women and men, attitudes of IVF couples towards cryopreserved embryos and public attitudes towards various aspects of oocyte donation in Sweden. Assessments of emotional, physical and social reactions were made on a daily reaction scale and attitudes on the basis of study-specific questionnaires. READ MORE

  3. 3. Interaction of trehalose with water and protein for the understanding of biological stabilization

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Christoffer Olsson; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; trehalose; protein; neutron scattering; water; neutron diffraction; amorphous; cryopreservation; biomolecule; EPSR; DSC;

    Abstract : The understanding of biomolecular interactions with water and co-solutes opens up further understanding for the mechanism behind biomolecular stabilization. This is highly important for developing technologies aimed to preserve biological material. Such techniques include cryopreservation of for example pharmaceuticals or human organ transplants.

    Abstract : Prostasomes are extracellularly occurring organelles which are secreted in human semen by the prostate gland. Prostasomes have several known biological activities, but their physiological function is still unclear. In this thesis some new aspects were studied on the biological role of the prostasomes.
