  1. 1. Preeclampsia and the Brain : Epidemiological and Magnetic Resonance Studies

    Author : Maria Nelander; Johan Wikström; Anna-Karin Wikström; Inger Sundström Poromaa; Gerda Zeeman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; preeclampsia; eclampsia; seizure; MRI; MRS; IVIM; dementia; cardiovascular disease; magnesium; cerebral organic osmolytes; perfusion; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Preeclampsia is a pregnancy specific syndrome that causes substantial maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. One major contributor to maternal deaths is eclampsia, i.e. when seizures arise in the context of preeclampsia. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cytokines and immune balance in preeclampsia : a survey of some immunological variables and methods in the study of preeclampsia

    Author : Yvonne Jonsson; Christina Ekerfelt; Göran Berg; Leif Matthiesen; Lucia Mincheva-Nilsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Preeclampsia; Cytokines; Leukocytes; Immunology; Placenta; Th1 Th2 balance; Inflammation; Immunobiology; Immunbiologi;

    Abstract : Preeclampsia is one of the most feared pregnancy complications, with a risk of maternal and fetal death and with no ideal therapy readily available. The cause of this strictly pregnancyrelated disease is still unknown and is therefore a great challenge to all researchers in the field of pregnancy-related pathophysiology. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cerebral biomarkers in women with preeclampsia

    Author : Lina Bergman; Helena Åkerud; Anna Karin Wikström; Johan Wikström; Eva Britta Råssjö; Ulf Högberg; Marc Spandermaan; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Preeclampsia and eclampsia are among the most common causes of maternal and fetal mortality and morbidity worldwide. There are no reliable means to predict eclampsia or cerebral edema in women with preeclampsia and knowledge of the brain involvement in preeclampsia is still limited. READ MORE

  4. 4. Preeclampsia – Studies on the Placenta and B-type Natriuretic Peptide

    Author : Katja Junus; Matts Olovsson; Anna-Karin Wikström; Stefan Hansson; Liv Cecilie Vestrheim Thomsen; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Preeclampsia has several pathophysiological pathways, but the placenta has a central role. The pathophysiology appears to differ between the two subtypes – early- and late-onset preeclampsia. READ MORE

  5. 5. Calciumhomeostasis and Vitamin D in Obesity and Preeclampsia

    Author : Hella Hultin; Per Hellman; Ylva Pernow; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Calcium homeostasis; vitamin D; preeclampsia; obesity; parathyroid hormone; Endocrine surgery; Endokrin kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Normal physiological functioning is highly dependent of calcium and the concentration range is very narrow. Normal calcium levels are so crucial to survival that the body will de-mineralize bone if the levels are insufficient. A prerequisite for normal calcium uptake is a normal Vitamin D level. READ MORE
