  1. 1. Biochemical and biomechanical modulation of the in vitro retina

    Author : Linnéa Taylor; Lund Oftalmologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Retina; in vitro; modulation; biomechanics; glutamate; GDNF; stretch; Müller cells; Photoreceptors; gliosis;

    Abstract : The porcine retinal explant culture paradigm offers the possibility to study retinal health, disease and development independently from the surrounding tissues of the eye. Retina-intrinsic effects of molecular and mechanical cues on the isolated retinal sheet can thus be studied with great precision. READ MORE

  2. 2. Oxidation of fish lipids during gastrointestinal in vitro digestion

    Author : Karin Larsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TBARS; HHE; salmon; lipids; TIM; fish; HNE; in vitro digestion; gastrointestinal; aldehydes; cod liver oil; n-3 PUFA; herring; lipid oxidation; MDA;

    Abstract : Fish and many other marine organisms, contain long chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC n-3 PUFA), e.g. eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA has shown beneficial effects in diseases related to inflammatory processes, such as cardiovascular diseases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Applications of human skin in vitro

    Author : Susanna Lönnqvist; Gunnar Kratz; Magnus Berggren; Jyrki Vuola; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Chronic wounds are a substantial problem in today’s health care and place significant strains on the patient. Successful modelling of the wound healing process is pivotal for the advancement of wound treatment research. Wound healing is a dynamic and multifactorial process involving all constituents of the skin. READ MORE

  4. 4. In vitro models aiming for fertility preservation

    Author : Halima Albalushi; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : Fertility preservation is considered a great hope to people suffering from infertility as a consequence of developmental or genetic cause, a disease itself or its treatments sequelae. In vitro models are fundamental to enrich our knowledge about human germ cell development and its regulation, to generate and screen new therapeutic measures and might provide a tool that can be transferred to clinical use to treat infertility.

  5. 5. Regulation of human ovarian folliculogenesis in vitro

    Author : Inger Britt Carlsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Culture; follicle; folliculogenesis; GDF-9; AMH; c-Kit Kit Ligand; matrix; oocyte; ovary; TGF-beta;

    Abstract : Cryopreservation of ovarian tissue containing immature oocytes is one approach to preserving the potential fertility of young women who risk losing their oocytes as a consequence of treatment with anti-cancer agents, or genetic disorders. This cryopreserved tissue can then be transplanted back into the ovary when the woman wants to have children. READ MORE
