  1. 1. Ultraviolet light, autoimmune disorders and the etiology of malignant lymphomas

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics

    Author : Karin Ekström Smedby; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Non-Hodgkin lymphoma; Hodgkin lymphoma; ultraviolet light; autoimmune disorders; rheumatoid arthritis; celiac disease; risk factors; cohort; case-control; epidemiology;

    Abstract : Malignant lymphomas constitute a clinically and morphologically diverse group of malignancies that may also differ etiologically. The incidence of the most common non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) has increased dramatically worldwide during the past decades. READ MORE

  2. 2. Malignant transformation of the colorectal mucosa in inflammatory bowel disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm Söder Hospital

    Abstract : Ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) are disorders of unknown etiology, often referred to as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). The increased risk of colorectal cancer (CRC) in patients with longstanding, extensive colonic IBD is an important clinical problem. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mechanisms and mediators of apoptosis : with special reference to hematological disorders

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Institute of Enviromental Medicine

    Author : Bengt Fadeel; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; apoptosis; Bcl-2; caspases; chemotherapy; chronic granulomatous disease; familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis; Fas; homology-based modeling; neutrophils; phosphatidylserine; reactive oxygen species;

    Abstract : Life and death are inextricably entwined. Naturally occurring cell death or apoptosis is essential for the of homeostasis and serves to remove extraneous or dangerous cells in a swift and unobtrusive manner. work has demonstrated that such cell death is genetically regulated and transpires according to evolutionarily conserved pathways.

  4. 4. Development of Adenoviral Vectors for Studying Hematopoietic Stem Cell Function

    University dissertation from Divison of Molecular Medicine and Gene Therapy

    Author : Marcus Järås; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hematologi; extracellulära vätskor; extracellular fluids; hTERT; adenovirus; hematopoietic stem cells; Haematology;

    Abstract : Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are defined by their capacity to self-renew and differentiate into all hematopoietic cell lineages. Postnatally, HSCs reside predominantly in the bone marrow and are relatively rare, but important cells because of their therapeutic potential in bone marrow transplantation protocols and in their involvement in the origin of certain leukemias.

  5. 5. The challenge of co-existence : from graft-versus-host disease to stable mixed chimerism after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Oncology-Pathology

    Author : Arwen Stikvoort; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The only curative treatment strategy for many hematologic and inborn immunodeficiency disorders is an allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). The treatment involves replacing the entire hematopoietic system of the recipient. READ MORE
