  1. 1. Glucose degradation products in patients on hemodialysis : interventional studies

    Author : Bernd Ramsauer; Bernd Stegmayr; Henrik Hadimeri; Bengt Lindholm; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hemodialysis; advanced glycation end products; skin autofluorescence; plasma autofluorescence; glucose degradation products;

    Abstract : Hemodialysis (HD) is the most frequently used treatment for end-stage renal disease. Despite all efforts to improve the outcomes, the mortality of patients on HD is still high, and this especially is related to cardiovascular diseases (CVD). READ MORE

  2. 2. Glucose degradation products in peritoneal dialysis fluids

    Author : Martin Erixon; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Medicine human and vertebrates ; 4-dideoxyglucosone-3-ene; 3; cytotoxicity; storage; temperature; Glucose degradation products biocompatibility; sterlization; Medicin människa och djur ; Analytical chemistry; Analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : Patients suffering from renal failure must remove extracellular water and waste products from their body in order to survive. One way of doing this is by treatment with peritoneal dialysis (PD). READ MORE

  3. 3. Biological effects of glucose degradation products in peritoneal dialysis fluids

    Author : Peter Jonasson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Peritoneal dialysis; glucose degradation products; peritonitis; peritoneum; neutrophils; macrophages; vital microscopy; microcirculation; complement; leukocyte recruitment; respiratory burst.;

    Abstract : Background: It is well known that Peritoneal dialysis (PD) fluids have biological effects on a number of cells and tissues in the peritoneum and the peritoneal cavity. However, little attention has been paid to the influence of glucose degradation products (GDPs), formed during heat-sterilization and storage of PD fluids. READ MORE

  4. 4. Oxidative stress and inflammation as a response to glucose exposure and dialysis

    Author : Anna Bryland; Njurmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glucose; glucose degradation products; dialysis; diabetes; oxidative stress; inflammation; endothelial dysfunction;

    Abstract : Abstract: The main player of this thesis is glucose, both on a cellular level and with a clinical approach. Too much or wrongly handled glucose contributes to increased inflammation and oxidative stress, which is reinforced by the negative influences of uraemia and dialysis treatment. READ MORE

  5. 5. LDI-MS strategies for analysis of polymer degradation products, additives and drugs

    Author : Nina Aminlashgari; Minna Hakkarainen; Peter J. Schoenmakers; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; laser desorption ionization-mass spectrometry LDI-MS ; surface; polymer degradation products; additive; drugs; nanoparticles; nanocomposites; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : The advancement of mass spectrometry (MS) has been and continues to be a prominent analytical technique for highly accurate determination of analytes. The goal of this thesis was to develop new laser desorption ionization-mass spectrometric (LDI-MS) methods for analysis of polymer degradation products, additives and drugs. READ MORE
