  1. 1. Functional Dyspepsia Symptoms and Response to Omeprazole in the Short Term

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Elisabeth Bolling-Sternevald; Hans Glise; Rein Seensalu; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dyspepsia; drug therapy; omeprazole; gastrointestinal symptoms; peptic ulcer disease PUD ; malignancy; gastroesophageal reflux disease GERD ; dyspeptic symptoms; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Gastrointestinal symptoms have a prevalence of 20-40% in the general adult population in the Western world. These symptoms are generally considered to be poor predictors of organic findings [e.g. peptic ulcer disease (PUD) or malignancy]. READ MORE

  2. 2. Characterization of a new amino acid transport system in human epidermal Langerhans cells

    University dissertation from Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Lund University

    Author : Niels Bendsöe; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; amino acid transport; energy charge; epidermis; glycolysis; lactate; Langerhans cells; L-dopa; mitochondria; omeprazole; Dermatology; venereology; Dermatologi; venereologi;

    Abstract : Based on the discovery of a new amino acid transport system in Langerhans cells (LC), various aspects concerning the L-dopa uptake mechanism into human epidermal LC and the energy metabolism of epidermis have been examined and subsequently characterised. The system lacks any characteristics of other described amino acid transport systems in other cell types. READ MORE

  3. 3. Gastric gland luminal pressure and mucosal protection : An in vivo study in the anesthetized rat

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ingrid Synnerstad; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology and anatomy; acid secretion; bicarbonate; epithelial cell surface pH; gastric gland; muscularis mucosa; micropuncture; mucosal blood flow; mucus gel thickness; omeprazole; permeability; prostaglandins; ranitidine; rat; Fysiologi och anatomi; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Abstract : The driving force for creation of channels in gastric mucus, for acid and pepsin transport, ismost probably the hydrostatic pressure generated within the gastric gland lumen. The aim ofthis study was to investigate the origin and regulation of the glandular pressure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular regulation of rat histidine decarboxylase

    University dissertation from Department of Physiology and Neuroscience, Lund University

    Author : Christine Dartsch; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physiology; omeprazole; antiserum; fetal rat liver; COS-7 cells; purification; bacterial expression; protein turnover; ECL cells; gastric mucosa; gastrin; histdine decarboxylase; histamine; Fysiologi; Proteins; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi;

    Abstract : Histamine is involved in a variety of physiological processes like gastric acid secretion, inflammation and neurotransmission. The production of histamine is catalysed by the enzyme histidine decarboxylase (HDC), which is a strongly regulated enzyme. READ MORE

  5. 5. The importance of the CYP2C19 polymorphism for disposition and effects of omeprazole treatment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, -

    Author : Mohamed Sagar; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Omeprazole; CYP2C19; H. pylori; gastrin; intragastric pH; vitamin B12;

    Abstract : CYP2C19, catalyzes the metabolism of omeprazole and several other drugs. About 3% of Caucasians are poor metabolizers (PM) of these drugs. The goal of this thesis was to evaluate the importance of CYP2C19 polymorphism for disposition and clinical effects of omeprazole treatment in healthy subjects and in patients with acid related disorders.
