  1. 1. Prediction Models and Pharmacogenomics in Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency

    Author : Edna J L Barbosa; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; growth hormone deficiency; hypopituitarism; growth hormone replacement therapy; prediction models; candidate gene approach; polymorphisms; body composition; growth hormone receptor; lipid metabolism; extracellular water; pharmacogenomics;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to study clinical and genetic factors that influence response to growth hormone replacement therapy (GHRT) in GH deficient (GHD) adults. The patients were part of a cohort of adults with hypopituitarism and severe GHD who were studied before and after 12 months of GHRT. READ MORE

  2. 2. Pharmacogenomics of Antihypertensive Treatment & Clinical Pharmacological Studies of Digoxin Treatment

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Pär Hallberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Molecular medicine; pharmacogenomics; irbesartan; atenolol; hypertension; digoxin; RIKS-HIA; atrial fibrillation; heart failure; Molekylärmedicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Molecular medicine genetics and pathology ; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Molekylär medicin genetik och patologi ;

    Abstract : In Part I we found that the CYP2C9 genotype appears to influence the diastolic blood pressure response to the angiotensin II-receptor antagonist irbesartan in patients with hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy. Those with the *1/*2 genotype (slower metabolism) responded better than those with the *1/*1 genotype (normal metabolism), likely due to a slower elimination of the drug. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modeling the Interaction Space of Biological Macromolecules: A Proteochemometric Approach Applications for Drug Discovery and Development

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Aleksejs Kontijevskis; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Bioinformatics; proteochemometrics; bioinformatics; chemoinformatics; chemical space; QSAR; retroviral proteases; HIV-1; drug resistance; pharmacogenomics; cytochrome P450; GPCRs; melanocortin receptors; interactome; machine-learning; rough sets; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Molecular interactions lie at the heart of myriad biological processes. Knowledge of molecular recognition processes and the ability to model and predict interactions of any biological molecule to any chemical compound are the key for better understanding of cell functions and discovery of more efficacious medicines.

  4. 4. Cardiovascular Risk Genes in Prevention and Treatment Response

    University dissertation from Hypertension and Cardiovascular Disease

    Author : Viktor Hamrefors; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; blood pressure treatment; hypertension; statins; dyslipidemia; cardiovascular prevention; cardiovascular genetics; stroke; coronary artery disease; chromosome 9p21; pharmacogenetics; pharmacogenomics;

    Abstract : GENERAL AIM: To investigate how common single-nucleotide-polymorphisms (SNPs) that associate with cardiovascular disease (CVD) could be used in prevention and treatment of CVD. SUBJECTS: Subjects from the population-based Malmö-Diet-and-Cancer-(MDC)-Study (n=30447) and hypertensives from the Nordic-Diltiazem-(NORDIL)-Study (n=10881). READ MORE

  5. 5. Approaches for analysis of mutations and genetic variations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Afshin Ahmadian; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LOH; microsatellite; fragment analysis; DNA sequencing; pyrosequencing; cancer; mutation; variation; SNP; allele-specific extension; apyrase; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Detecting mutations and genomic variations is fundamental indiagnosis, isolating disease genes, association studies,functional genomics and pharmacogenomics. The objective hasbeen to use and further develop a variety of tools andtechnologies to analyze these genetic alterations andvariations. READ MORE
