    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to develop and evaluate new knowledge- and data-driven methods for supporting treatment and providing information for better assessment of Parkinson’s disease (PD).PD is complex and progressive. There is a large amount of inter- and intravariability in motor symptoms of patients with PD (PwPD). READ MORE

  3. 3. Dopaminergic stabilizers for the treatment of schizophrenia. Rat studies focusing on negative symptoms and mechanisms of action

    Author : Johan P. Rung; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ACR16; dopaminergic stabilizers; -MK-801; motor activity; negative symptoms; - -OSU6162; prolactin; rat; schizophrenia; social withdrawal;

    Abstract : Schizophrenia is a severe mental disorder manifested by positive, negative and cognitive symptoms. Current antipsychotic drugs have poor effects on negative and cognitive symptoms, thus necessitating the development of new antipsychotic treatments. Dopaminergic stabilizers constitute a novel concept for the treatment of schizophrenia. READ MORE

  4. 4. Non-motor symptoms in Parkinson’s disease : modeling and mechanisms

    Author : Débora Masini; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder, typically characterized by the progressive death of midbrain dopaminergic neurons projecting from the substantia nigra to other areas within the basal ganglia. Historically, PD has been diagnosed as a purely motor disorder dominated by bradykinesia (slowness of movement), rigidity, resting tremor, and postural instability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Gastrointestinal symptoms in chronic renal failure. Prevalence and pathophysiological mechanisms

    Author : Hans Strid; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Chronic renal failure; end-stage renal disease; gastrointestinal symptoms; overuse; proton pump inhibitors; H2-receptor antagonists; quality of life; manometry; small intestinal bacterial overgrowth; gastric emptying; Helicobacter pylori;

    Abstract : Chronic renal failure (CRF) has a varying etiology and is characterised by an increasing accumulation of toxic metabolic waste products in the blood. Malnutrition is a common finding in uraemic patients and is regarded as a marker for morbidity and mortality. Many factors, including gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms, lead to malnutrition in CRF.
