    Abstract : Pharmacometric modelling is widely used in many aspects related to type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), for instance in the anti-diabetes drug development, and in quantifying the disease progression of T2DM.The aim of this thesis were to improve the design of early phase anti-diabetes drug development studies with the focus on the power to identify mechanism of drug action (MoA), and to characterize and quantify the progression from prediabetes to overt diabetes, both the natural progression and the progression with diet and exercise interventions, using pharmacometrics modelling.

    Abstract : The gastrointestinal tract comprises a number of digestive organs including the stomach and pancreas. The stomach is involved in the digestion and short term storage of food while the pancreas is a mixed endocrine and exocrine gland which provides the body with hormones and enzymes essential for nutritional utilisation.

    Abstract : Apoptosis is one of the most common types of cell death. Under physiological conditions, it plays an essential role in removal of damaged and potentially harmful cells. Excessive apoptosis has however been linked to a number of diseases including proteinuric kidney disease and DKD, and is believed to enhance the disease progression. READ MORE

  4. 4. Untargeted metabolomics and novel data analysis strategies to identify biomarkers of diet and type 2 diabetes

    Author : Lin Shi; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a major global health problem and prevention could be improved by identifying individuals at risk at an early stage, followed by preventive strategies, e.g., dietary modifications. READ MORE

  5. 5. Spatial analysis and modeling of nerve fiber patterns

    Author : Claes Andersson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bayesian field theory; Diabetic neuropathies; Multilevel models Statistics ; Institutionen för matematiska vetenskaper.

    Abstract : Diabetic neuropathy is a condition associated with diabetes affecting the epidermal nerve fibers (ENFs). This thesis presents analysis methods and models for ENF data, with two main puroposes: to find early signs of diabetic neuropathy and to characterize how this condition changes the nerve fiber structure.
