  1. 1. Human Endometrial Angiogenesis An Immunohistochemical Study of the Endometrial Expression of Angiogenic Growth Factors and Their Corresponding Receptors

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Björn Möller; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; Human endometrium; angiogenesis; menstrual cycle; endothelial cells; immunohistochemistry; western blot; VEGF; VEGFR; FGF-2; FGFR; EGF; EGFR; levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : The human endometrium undergoes dramatic changes in morphology and function during the menstrual cycle. Recurrent angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels) is of utmost importance for oxygen supply and nourishment of the rapidly growing endometrial tissue. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals on Human Endometrial Endothelial Cells In Vitro

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Malin Helmestam; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; endocrine disrupting chemicals; hormones; human endometrial endothelial cells; endometrium; estrogen; progesterone; cadmium; tamoxifen; mifepristone; bisphenol A; angiogenesis; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Evidence from an abundant number of studies suggests that human female reproductive functions have become impaired over the past half century and that there might be a relationship between endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and reduced fertility. It is, however, not known by what mechanisms EDCs affect different reproductive functions such as endometrial receptivity, embryo implantation and placentation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effects of some Endocrine Disruptors on Human and Grey Seal Uterine Cells

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Carolina Bredhult; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Obstetrics and gynaecology; Reproductive toxicology; Baltic grey seal; leiomyoma; myometrial cells; endometrial endothelial cells; hormones; endocrine disruptors; Obstetrik och kvinnosjukdomar;

    Abstract : The effects of environmental contaminants in humans and animals are of great concern. Some contaminants are endocrine disruptors that may interfere with the endogenous hormonal signalling and disturb, for example, reproductive organs and functions. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Human Endometrium Studies on Angiogenesis and Endometriosis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Christian Moberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; endometrium; angiogenesis; endothelial cell; endometriosis; receptivity; implantation; oestrogen receptor; progesterone receptor; crystallin; interleukin; vasoactive intestinal peptide; peritoneal fluid; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis is thought to play a pivotal role in the cycling endometrium. Coordinated by oestrogen and progesterone, endometrial blood vessel development is primarily mediated by vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF-A), which promotes endothelial cell (EC) proliferation and protects ECs from induced apoptosis.

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karin E Lindgren; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Angiogenesis; embryo culture medium; embryogenesis; embryonic secretome; endometrium; histidine-rich glycoprotein; human embryo development; human embryo implantation; human endometrial endothelial cells; in vitro fertilisation; infertility; male infertility; proximity extension assay; recurrent miscarriage; single nucleotide polymorphism; sperm quality; time-lapse technique; vascular endothelial growth factor;

    Abstract : Infertility affects 15% of reproductive-aged couples. The milieu surrounding the growing embryo is of outmost importance, and should be optimised during in vitro fertilisation (IVF). Many biological processes, such as angiogenesis, coagulation, and immune processes need to be well regulated for a pregnancy to occur and progress normally. READ MORE
