  1. 1. New targeted therapies for malignant neural tumors : From systematic discovery to zebrafish models

    Author : Elin Almstedt; Sven Nelander; Rogier Versteeg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuroblastoma; glioblastoma; data integration; zebrafish models; precision medicine; Oncology; Onkologi; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi; Medical Informatics; Medicinsk informatik; Farmakokinetik och läkemedelsterapi; Pharmacokinetics and Drug Therapy; Molekylär medicin; Molecular Medicine;

    Abstract : Cancers in the neural system presents a major health challenge. The most aggressive brain tumor in adults, glioblastoma, has a median survival of 15 months and few therapeutic options. High-risk neuroblastoma, a childhood tumor originating in the sympathetic nervous system, has a 5-year survival under 50%, despite extensive therapy. READ MORE

  2. 2. In Vivo Accuracy and Precision in Prosthodontics

    Author : Robert Nedelcu; Andreas Thor; Ingela Nyström; Pontus Olsson; Per Vult von Steyern; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; accuracy; precision; in vivo; digital impression; intraoral scanner; polyether impression; implant impression; framework misfit; fully edentulous; Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery; Käkkirurgi; Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery; Käkkirurgi;

    Abstract : Background: There has been a dramatic increase in commercially available intraoral scanners (IOS) in the last decade, offering to replace indirect digitization of models (MOD) fabricated from impressions (IMPR). IOS has benefits of less patient discomfort and a faster workflow to fabricate fixed dental prosthesis (FDP), and implant-supported prostheses (IFD). READ MORE

  3. 3. Analysis of Transvascular Transport Phenomena in the glomerular and peritoneal microcirculation

    Author : CARL ÖBERG; Njurmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peritoneal dialysis; glomerular filtration barrier; pore model; automated peritoneal dialysis APD ; three-pore model;

    Abstract : The current work is devoted entirely to the study of passive transport phenomena, or more specifically, the more simple diffusion, electric migration and filtration of solute matter and water over glomerular and peritoneal capillary walls. The driving forces behind such trans-capillary transport phenomena have long been assumed to be simple gradients of concentration, hydrostatic pressure and electric potential. READ MORE

    Abstract : Pharmacometric modelling is widely used in many aspects related to type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), for instance in the anti-diabetes drug development, and in quantifying the disease progression of T2DM.The aim of this thesis were to improve the design of early phase anti-diabetes drug development studies with the focus on the power to identify mechanism of drug action (MoA), and to characterize and quantify the progression from prediabetes to overt diabetes, both the natural progression and the progression with diet and exercise interventions, using pharmacometrics modelling.

  5. 5. Studies on Heparin Binding protein in bacterial infections

    Author : Adam Linder; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Infectious diseases remain a major health problem, where sepsis and other severe bacterial infections are common causes of morbidity and mortality, and are associated with high costs for the community. The importance of early and appropriate treatment of sepsis and severe bacterial infections has been underlined by many and since sepsis is more prevalent and has a higher mortality rate than for instance acute myocardial infarction, there is a need for improvement.
