  1. 1. Ehrlichia in animals and humans

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Anneli Bjöersdorff; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; seroprevalence; humans; animals; granulocytic; ehrlichiosis; Ehrlichia phagocytophila; tick-borne; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Ehrlichia phagocytophila is a tick-borne pathogen of domestic animals, which has recently been acknowledged also as a human pathogen. It is a strictly intracellular bacterium, infecting granulocytes of the host, sometimes resulting in clinical disease - granulocytic ehrlichiosis - with manifestations ranging from mild flu-like conditions to severe infections with multi-organ failure and death.

  2. 2. Acute Myocardial Infarction: The Relationship between Duration of Ischaemia and Infarct Size in Humans - Assessment by MRI and SPECT

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Physiology, Lund University

    Author : Erik Hedström; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular system; Fysiologi; Physiology; humans; cardiac troponin T; creatine kinase isoenzyme MB; delayed contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging; single photon emission computed tomography; myocardial perfusion; myocardial infarct size; myocardium at risk; duration of ischaemia; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Abstract : The effect of duration of ischaemia on final infarct size is well established in animal studies, but not fully evaluated in humans. Delayed contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DE-MRI) can be used to distinguish between viable and non-viable myocardium and thus to quantify infarct size. READ MORE

  3. 3. Regulation of bile acids by prebiotic food components : Studies in rat caecum and in serum of mice and humans

    University dissertation from Department of Food Technology, Lund University

    Author : Tannaz Ghaffarzadegan; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bile acids; Dietary fibre; Fat; Pectin; Guar gum; Barley; Lingonberry; Turmeric; Short-chain fatty acids; Gut microbiota; Caecum; Serum; Rat; Mice; Humans; GC-FID; UHPLC-MS;

    Abstract : Bile acids (BA) are formed from cholesterol in the liver and, apart from being part of fat digestion, they also act as signalling molecules in several health-related physiological processes. BA composition is regulated by gut microbiota as well as dietary fibre (DF) and fat in the diet. READ MORE

  4. 4. Origins and Adaptation in Humans A Case Study of Taste and Lifestyle

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Agnès E. Sjöstrand; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Evolutionary Genetics; Evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, I use population genetics and statistical approaches to investigate early human demography, infer local adaptation in diverse sets of populations, and study the genetic basis for taste perception.In the first paper, I examine the genomic evidence for a severe bottleneck, which has been suggested based on paleontological and climate studies to coincide with the emergence of anatomically modern humans.

  5. 5. Polyomavirus infections in humans

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Annika Lundstig; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Polyomaviruses; tumour virology; BK virus; neuroblastoma; maternal infection; Real Time PCR; enzyme immunoassay; seroprevalence; JC virus; SV40; virus like particles VLPs ; seroepidemiology; biobank; mesothelioma tissues; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : The human polyomaviruses BKV and JCV are endemic and infect > 70% of population worldwide. Primary infections occur during childhood and are largely subclinical. Following primary infection, both viruses persist as latent infections in the kidneys and B lymphocytes. READ MORE
