  1. 1. Nephrotic syndrome in children : Functional, morphological and therapeutical aspects

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Author : Eva Löwenborg; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Children; glomerular volume; glomerular filtration rate; effective renal plasma flow; rats; nephrotic syndrome; cyclosporine; nephrotoxicity;

    Abstract : Although cure rates of the idiopathic nephrotic syndrome in children have improved because of advances in immunosuppressive therapy, the pathogenesis and course of the disease remain controversial. We have followed children with nephrotic syndrome to study renal function and morphological changes in kidney biopsies and in an experimental study. READ MORE

  2. 2. Physiological and morphological aspects of the glomerular barrier in health and disease. Results based on experimental studies in the rat

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Author : Clara Hjalmarsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; glomerular permeability; isolated perfused kidney; charge; endothelial surface layer; glycocalyx; electron microscopy; orosomucoid; nephrotic syndrome; proteinuria;

    Abstract : Tremendous amounts of fluid are filtered every day through the kidneys. The anastomosing capillary loops surrounded by Bowman s capsule, forming the glomerulus, function in accordance with the interplay between the hydrostatic and the colloid osmotic pressure. The result of the action of these mechanisms is the production of primary urine. READ MORE

  3. 3. The role of melanocortin 1 receptor in kidney disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Author : Annika Lindskog Jonsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nephrotic syndrome; proteinuria; adrenocorticotropic hormone; melanocortin 1 receptor; podocytes;

    Abstract : Nephrotic syndrome is a term describing a group of poorly understood glomerular diseases that are responsible for a steadily increasing number of patients requiring active uremic care. Characteristic symptoms of nephrotic syndrome are proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, hyperlipidemia and peripheral edema, and treatment of these symptoms, rather than their cause, is currently the only option available to the clinician.

  4. 4. Podocyte Melanocortin 1 Receptor Mediated Signaling A potential new target for patients with kidney diseases

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Johannes Elvin; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Podocyte; Melanocortin 1 Receptor; actin cytoskeleton; nephrotic syndrome; adrenocorticotropic hormone; oxidative stress; RhoA; Kidney disease;

    Abstract : Treatment of patients with nephrotic syndrome (NS) is currently unspecific and directed at ameliorating the symptoms rather than eliminating the cause. NS is actually a multitude of glomerular diseases characterized by poorly understood disease mechanisms and symptoms that include proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia and edema. READ MORE

  5. 5. Functional and molecular aspects of the glomerular barrier

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Anna Björnson Granqvist; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; glomerular endothelium; glycocalyx; podocyte; proteoglycan; glycosaminoglycans; nephrotic syndrome;

    Abstract : The kidneys are crucial for maintaining a normal salt-water balance in the body, which is a prerequisite for life. They do that by filtering 180 liters of plasma per day across the highly permselective glomerular barrier and reabsorbing 99 % of the filtrate. READ MORE
