  1. 1. Salivary gland neoplasms studies on the cytoskeleton, the secretory apparatus and the nuclear DNA content

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Hans Gustafsson; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [1986]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Salivary gland neoplasms; intermediate filaments; immuno- histochemistry; ultrastructure; DNA; development; histogenesis; progno¬sis;

    Abstract : The heterogeneity of salivary gland neoplasms have made classification and prognostication of these tumours sometimes difficult, and the in­troduction of techniques, such as enzyme and carbohydrate histochemis­try and electron microscopy have only to a certain extent increased our knowledge in these respects. In the present study immunohistochemical methods have been used to identify intermediate filament proteins (IFP) in normal fetal and adult parotid glands, as well as in salivary neo­plasms.

  3. 3. Modulation of serous salivary gland function by the sympathetic nervous system a biochemical and ultrastructural study with special reference to β-adrenoceptor subtypes

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Roger Henriksson; Umeå universitet.; [1981]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rat parotid gland; guinea-pig submandibular gland; ß-adrenoceptor subtypes; sympathetic denervation; sympathetic superstimulation; amylase secretion; cyclic AMP; ultrastructural stereology;

    Abstract : The aim of the present investigation was to study the influence of the sympathetic nervous system and of various adrenoceptor agents on enzyme secretion and morphology in rat parotid and guinea-pig submandibular glands. Biochemical methods were combined with electron microscopical techniques. READ MORE

  4. 4. On The Innervation of Salivary Glands and Treatment of Dry Mouth - An Experimental and Clinical Study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Nina Khosravani; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Parotid gland; Denervation; Acetylcholine synthesis; Otic ganglion; Auriculo-temporal nerve; Facial nerve; Neuropeptides; Salivary gland hypofunction; Physostigmine;

    Abstract : Detailed knowledge of the innervation of the parotid gland is essential in basic studies on various neuroglandular phenomena as well as in various types of orofacial surgery. The innervation is more complex than usually depicted in Textbooks. READ MORE

  5. 5. Radiation Oncology Data and Modelling Side Effects after Radiation Therapy

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Caroline Olsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dose and side effect data; dose-volume response; fractionation effect; LQ model; sequential two-phase radiotherapy; head and neck cancer; parotid gland; xerostomia; pelvic radiotherapy; gynecological cancer; pubic bone; pain; data integration;

    Abstract : Although modern radiation therapy techniques have the ability to conform the dose distribution of ionizing radiation tightly around the volume to be treated, unwanted irradiation to surrounding organs remains a problem. The probability of a side effect arising in the normal tissue of a patient after radiation therapy can be modelled by sigmoid mathematical functions known as normal tissue complication probability (NTCP) models.
