  1. 1. Functional studies of the Quaking gene : Focus on astroglia and neurodevelopment

    Author : Katarzyna Radomska; Elena Jazin; Pertti Panula; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; QKI; RNA-binding protein; astrocyte; interferon; GFAP; neurodevelopment; zebrafish; neural progenitor cell;

    Abstract : The RNA-binding protein Quaking (QKI) plays a fundamental role in post-transcriptional gene regulation during mammalian nervous system development. QKI is well known for advancing oligodendroglia differentiation and myelination, however, its functions in astrocytes and embryonic central nervous system (CNS) development remain poorly understood.

  3. 3. Effects of Delayed versus Early Cord Clamping on Healthy Term Infants

    Author : Ola Andersson; Lena Hellström-Westas; Magnus Domellöf; Heike Rabe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; active management; birth; breast feeding; cord clamping; ferritin; growth; haemoglobin; human infant; infections; iron; iron deficiency; iron deficiency anemia; iron status; morbidity; neurodevelopment; randomised controlled trial; umbilical cord; Pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to study maternal and infant effects of delayed cord clamping (≥180 seconds, DCC) compared to early (≤10 seconds, ECC) in a randomised controlled trial. Practice and guidelines regarding when to clamp the cord vary globally, and different meta-analyses have shown contradictory conclusions on benefits and disadvantages of DCC and ECC. READ MORE

  4. 4. Delayed cord clamping in Nepal-Evidence for implementation

    Keywords : Attitude; Clinical Practice; Ferritin; Haemoglobin; Iron deficiency; Iron deficiency anaemia; Iron status; Jaundice; Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia; Newborn; Neurodevelopment; Randomized controlled trial; Umbilical cord clamping.; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : The aims of this thesis were to investigate effects of timing of umbilical cord clamping on newborn health, and on infant outcomes up to 12 months of age in a high-risk population and to explore the context of implementing changed umbilical cord clamping practices in Nepal.A randomised controlled trial with 540 late preterm and term infants born by normal vaginal delivery was set up at a maternity hospital in Kathmandu, Nepal.

    Abstract : Background Due to small iron stores and rapid growth during the first months of life, infants with low birth weight (LBW) are at risk of iron deficiency (ID). ID in infancy is associated with irreversible impaired neurodevelopment. READ MORE
