  1. 1. Fluid biomarkers of extracellular matrix remodelling across neurological diseases

    Author : Karolina Minta; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer’s disease; biomarker; extracellular matrix; idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus; immunoassay; mass spectrometry; radiation-induced brain injury; traumatic brain injury; vascular dementia;

    Abstract : Neurological diseases constitute a major health and socioeconomic issue. Despite an enormous amount of research going on globally, the prevalence and mortality of neurological disorders are still rising. READ MORE

  2. 2. Water physiology in burn victims

    Author : Joachim Zdolsek; Tøstolv Lund; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Total body water; Extracellular fluid; Burn; Bioelectrical impedance; Oedema; Extracellular matrix; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Patients who sustain a burn injury of more than 20 - 30 % TBSA will, if untreated, develop burn shock within a couple of hours. Flcid is lost fi·om the vascular compartment due to suction from the interstitium of the wound and due to a generalised increase in vascular permeability. READ MORE

  3. 3. Expression and role of the cytokine tyrosine kinase receptor flt3 in early hematopoiesis

    Author : Jörgen Adolfsson; Stamcellscentrum (SCC); []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hematologi; extracellulära vätskor; extracellular fluids; Haematology; flt3; cytokine; Hematopoiesis; stem cells;

    Abstract : Mature blood cells are crucial for life, but they have a short lifetime and thus have to be replaced. These mature blood cells are produced by lineage restricted progenitors, which themselves are generated by rare multipotent hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) in a highly dynamic process called hematopoiesis.

  4. 4. Gene Expression Studies of Hematologic Malignacies

    Author : Anna Andersson; Avdelningen för klinisk genetik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; extracellular fluids; Haematology; cancer; onkologi; Cytologi; oncology; Cytology; acute myeloid leukemia; acute lymphoblastic leukemia; normal hematopoietic cells; cDNA microarray; gene expression profiling; hematopoiesis; pediatric leukemia; fusion gene; Pediatrics; Pediatri; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; cancerology; Hematologi; extracellulära vätskor;

    Abstract : The general aim of this thesis was to characterize hematologic malignancies using gene expression profiling in order to obtain an improved classification and to study deregulated transcriptional networks in leukemia. In the first study (Article I), the gene expression profiles of hematologic cell lines were analyzed to investigate whether such cell lines maintain expression profiles that are characteristic of their primary genetic changes.

  5. 5. Towards Gene Therapy of Osteopetrosis

    Author : Maria Askmyr; Avdelningen för molekylärmedicin och genterapi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; extracellular fluids; Haematology; oc oc mice; osteoclast; hematopoietic stem cells; Hematologi; extracellulära vätskor;

    Abstract : The goal in this thesis is development of gene therapy for malignant infantile osteopetrosis (IMO), a rare but severe genetic bone disease. The concept of osteopetrosis implies dysfunction or lack of osteoclasts, the bone resorbing cells in our body, resulting in failure of normal bone breakdown. READ MORE
