  1. 1. On Brain Oedema

    Author : Mårten Jungner; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatic brain injury; brain oedema; fluid therapy; blood-brain barrier;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury and bacterial meningitis may at a glance appear as two different disease entities. The host reaction, however, to both trauma and infection involves a strong inflammatory response, with the classical symptomology of rubor, tumor, calor, dolor et functio laesa. READ MORE

  2. 2. Experimental Traumatic Brain Injury and Cell Death - in vivo and in vitro aspects

    Author : Gustav Mattiasson; Sektion IV; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurofysiologi; neuropsychology; Neurology; uncoupling protein; mitochondrial permeability transition; cerebral blood flow; functional outcome; cell death; mitochondria; hippocampus; preconditioning; trauma; Brain; ischemia; neuropsykologi; Neurologi; neurophysiology;

    Abstract : Traumatic and ischemic brain damage are major causes of disability and death. While much effort has been spent on developing pharmacological treatments for these conditions, no neuroprotective drugs are in clinical use. READ MORE

  3. 3. DNA repair and the p53 pathway in ischemic and traumatic brain injury

    Author : Gregor Tomasevic; Neurokirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuronal death; DNA repair; knock-out mice; XPA; p53; mRNA; hippocampus; preconditioning; hypothermia; trauma; Brain; ischemia; neurobehavior; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Ischemic and traumatic brain damage are major causes of disability and death. While much effort has been spent to develop pharmacological treatments for these conditions, no neuroprotective drugs are in clinical use. READ MORE

  4. 4. Inflammatory mechanisms in experimental CNS trauma

    Author : Jonas Isaksson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Spinal cord injury; brain injury; ICAM-1; P-selectin; iNOS; inflammation; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries are important causes of premature death and permanentdisability. To improve the treatment of CNS-injured patients increased knowledge about thepathophysiological events that mediate death or dysfunction of nervous tissue is urgently needed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of Rho kinase, prostacyclin and L-arginine on microvascular permeability and perfusion

    Author : Cornelia Lundblad; Institutionen för Immunteknologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Fysiologi; Physiology; skeletal muscle; Rho kinase; prostacyclin; permeability; NO; experimental brain trauma; brain edema; brain contusion; microcirculation; cerebral perfusion;

    Abstract : This thesis presents some effects of Rho kinase, prostacyclin (PGI2) and nitric oxide (NO) in relation to trauma and inflammation by evaluating their effects on microvascular perfusion and permeability in mouse brain and in cat skeletal muscle. PGI2 and NO are endogenous vasoactive substances produced by the endothelium. READ MORE
