  1. 1. Studies on treatment of renal anemia in patients on chronic hemodialysis

    Author : Bergur V. Stefánsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : hemodialysis; IV iron; oxidative stress; erythropoietin; hepcidin;

    Abstract : In patients with chronic kidney disease, treatment with erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESA) effectively corrects anemia. Most of these patients also need supplementation with regular iron injections to secure iron availability for proper erythropoiesis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of iron supplementation on iron status, health and neurological development in marginally low birth weight infants

    Author : Staffan Berglund; Magnus Domellöf; Olle Hernell; Michael K Georgieff; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Auditory brainstem response; behavior; breast feeding; cognition; erythropoietin; ferritin; growth; hemoglobin; hepcidin; human infant; iron; iron deficiency; iron deficiency anemia; iron status; iron supplementation; low birth weight; morbidity; neurodevelopment; nutritional requirements; randomized controlled trial; Pediatrics; pediatrik;

    Abstract : Background Due to small iron stores and rapid growth during the first months of life, infants with low birth weight (LBW) are at risk of iron deficiency (ID). ID in infancy is associated with irreversible impaired neurodevelopment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Chlamydophila pneumoniae in Cardiovascular Diseases : Clinical and Experimental Studies

    Author : Marie Edvinsson; Göran Friman; Eva Hjelm; Nils-Gunnar Ilbäck; Christina Nyström-Rosander; Stefan Thelin; Björn Berdal; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Communicable diseases; Chlamydophila pneumoniae; Chlamydia pneumoniae; trace elements; atherosclerosis; aortic valve stenosis; thoracic aortic aneurysm; aortic dissection; hepcidin; iron; Infektionssjukdomar;

    Abstract : Chlamydophila pneumoniae (C. pneumoniae) has been suggested as a stimulator of chronic inflammation in atherosclerosis. C. pneumoniae DNA was demonstrated in aortic biopsies in 50% of patients with stable angina pectoris or acute coronary syndrome undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. READ MORE

  4. 4. Iron deficiency in female adolescent athletes - prevalence, mechanisms and diagnostics

    Author : Göran Sandström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; iron deficiency; iron deficiency anaemia; female adolescents; physical activity; inflammation; Helicobacter pylori;

    Abstract : Background: Iron deficiency (ID) is a very common condition and the most common nutritional deficiency in the world. ID mostly affects females, both athletes and non-athletes. Several underlying mechanisms are identified such as insufficient dietary intake and losses by menses. READ MORE

  5. 5. Importance of iron overload and steatosis in patients with chronic liver disease

    Author : Joel Marmur; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the importance of hepatic iron and fat deposition in the context of chronicliver disease, with special focus on the role of the S65C mutation in the hemochromatosis cryptogenic cirrhosis (CC) in patients evaluated for liver transplantation, the expressions of innate and adaptive immunity in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), and the role of the ironregulatory hormone hepcidin in dysmetabolic iron overload (DIO). NAFLD is the most common liver disease in the Western world. READ MORE
