  1. 1. Very preterm birth and fetal growth restriction in adolescence - Cardiovascular and renal aspects

    Author : Jonas Liefke; Lund Klinisk fysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Preterm and low birth weight; Fetal growth restriction; Magnetic resonance imaging MRI ; Cardiac function; Preterm birth; Adolescence; Kidney function; Kidney anatomy histology; Cardiovascular biomarkers; Arterial stiffness; Ambulatory blood pressure measurement; Biochemical makers;

    Abstract : This thesis applied magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to investigate to what extent very preterm birth due to early onset fetal growth restriction (FGR) impacts the cardiovascular system and kidneys in adolescence. The thesis further investigated whether FGR exacerbates the organ-specific effects of very preterm birth. READ MORE

  2. 2. Localization of lipoprotein lipase in mouse pancreas, kidney and placenta : impact of metabolic disturbances on cellular distribution and activity regulation

    Author : Rakel Nyrén; Gunilla Olivecrona; Paolo Parini; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lipoprotein lipase; pancreas; kidney; placenta; angiopoietin-like protein 4; high-fat diet; obesity; mice; PET CT; nutritional status; triglyceride; GPIHBP1; medicinsk och fysiologisk kemi; Medical and Physiological Chemistry;

    Abstract : Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is the key enzyme for metabolism of triglycerides in plasma lipoproteins. In recent years many new facts about the enzyme and its regulation have been uncovered. The endothelial membrane protein GPIHBP1 translocates LPL through endothelial cells and holds the enzyme in place at the luminal side of the capillary endothelium. READ MORE

  3. 3. Role of water channels in kidney and lung

    Author : Yanhong Li; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Aquaporins (AQPs) are membrane proteins that function as water channels facilitating a rapid and regulated transport of water across cell membranes. AQPs in kidney and lung play pivotal roles for the regulation of water homeostasis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Doppler Velocimetry in the Evaluation of Fetal Well-Being

    Author : Mariusz Dubiel; gynekologisk och prenatal ultraljudsdiagnostik Obstetrisk; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obstetrics; perinatal outcome; physiology; fetus; Doppler velocimetry; Color Doppler Energy; gynaecology; andrology; reproduction; sexuality; Obstetrik; gynekologi; andrologi; reproduktion; sexualitet;

    Abstract : Ultrasound Doppler velocimetry was used to predict fetal well-being. The uterine artery blood velocimetry seemed to be a good predictor of perinatal outcome in high-risk pregnancies and a complement to umbilical artery velocimetry. The fetal middle cerebral artery blood velocimetry might be an early sign of fetal hypoxia. READ MORE

  5. 5. α1-microglobulin – Therapeutic opportunities in kidney and erythrocyte pathology

    Author : Amanda Kristiansson; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; α1-microglobulin; oxidative stress; kidneys; heme; Red blood cells; hemolysis; radiation;

    Abstract : Oxidative stress is defined as an imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants. The reasons behind the condition are diverse, and can result in, or contribute to, the severity of many diseases. The body has different protective mechanisms to reduce the oxidative burden, among them a protein called α1-microglobulin (A1M). READ MORE
