  1. 1. Mesenteric lymph node spread and optimal lymph node resection in colon cancer

    University dissertation from Surgery Research Unit

    Author : Fredrik Olofsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Colon cancer; lymph node; right hemicolectomy; inferior mesenteric artery; CME;

    Abstract : Introduction Colon cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer world wide, with an incidence of almost 1 million cases anually. Surgery is a prerequisite for cure and the majority of patients are potentially curable at diagnosis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Kidney Hyaluronan Regulatory Aspects During Different States of Body Hydration, Nephrogenesis & Diabetes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Louise Rügheimer; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Physiology; hyaluronan; kidney; dehydration; hydration; diabetes; nephrogenesis; renomedullary interstitial cells; CD44; hyaluronan synthase; hyaluronidase; vasopressin; nitric oxide; prostaglandins; glucocorticoids; angiotensin II; diuresis; lymph vessel; podoplanin; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : The kidney regulates the excretion of water and electrolytes, which maintains homeostasis and enables control of arterial blood pressure. Hyaluronan, a large negatively charged interstitial glucosaminoglycan, is heterogeneously distributed within the kidney, primarily found in the medulla. READ MORE

  3. 3. Endothelial - mural cell interplay in regulation of blood- and lymph vessel development and function

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics

    Author : Yixin Wang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Blood- and lymphatic vascular development and homeostasis depend on correct endothelial- mural cell interaction, and dysregulation thereof is apparent in multiple human diseases. However the mechanisms controlling the formation of these respective vascular systems are not fully understood. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hem- and lymph-angiogenesis in cancer metastasis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Author : Hong Ji; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis, the process of sprouting new microvessels from the preexisting vasculature, is known to promote tumor growth. However, the role of tumor angiogenic vessels in facilitating metastasis remains poorly understood. READ MORE

  5. 5. Organ-specific mechanisms of vascular development in the mesentery

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Yang Zhang; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lymphatic vasculature; mesentery; hemogenic endothelium; lymphvasculogenesis; endothelial integrity; platelet; blood-filled lymphatic vessel; morphogenesis and maturation; compensation;

    Abstract : Understanding how the vascular systems are formed has significant clinical importance. General mechanisms underlying vascular development have been extensively studied during the past decades. However, the mechanisms regulating the development and function of the blood and lymphatic vessels in specific organs are poorly understood. READ MORE
