  1. 1. Premedication for intubation in newborn infants; pain assessment, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics

    Author : Elisabeth Norman; Lund Pediatrik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Premedication; pain; premature; newborn; aEEG; randomized controlled trial; thiopental; morphine; remifentanil; rapid sequence induction; ibntubation; pharmacokinetics; pharmacodynamics;

    Abstract : Preterm infants undergo intensive care during a vulnerable period with hemodynamic instability and a rapidly developing and immature CNS. Adequate pain management is essential, since pain experience might lead to acute physiological reactions as well as neurological and neuropsychological sequels. READ MORE

  2. 2. Assessment and management of bariatric surgery patients

    Author : Tomi Pösö; Doris Kesek; Ola Winsö; Roman Aroch; Mats Enlund; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bariatric surgery; morbid obesity; anesthesia; echocardiography; fluid therapy; preoperative; perioperative; venous return; rehydration; volatile rapid sequence induction; spontaneous breathing; sevoflurane.; Anaesthesiology; anestesiologi;

    Abstract : Background: In morbidly obese individuals (MO) cardiorespiratory comorbidities and body habitus challenge the perioperative management of anesthesia. To implement safe and reproducible routines for anesthesia and fluid therapy is the cornerstone in order to minimize anesthesia-related complications and to meet individual variability in rehydration needs.

  3. 3. Mammalian thioredoxin reductase as a drug target in anticancer therapy through direct apoptosis induction by selenium compromised forms of the protein

    Author : Karin Anestål; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Thioredoxin reductase; TrxR1; SecTRAPs; selenoproteins; apoptosis; caspase-2; glutathione reductase; cisplatin;

    Abstract : The mammalian thioredoxin system, consisting of thioredoxin(s), thioredoxin reductase(s) and NADPH, participates in the regulation of many important systems in a mammalian cell. The mammalian thioredoxin reductases (TrxR) are selenoproteins containing a selenocysteine (Sec) residue within a carboxyl terminal Gly Cys Sec Gly COOH motif. READ MORE

  4. 4. A novel drug and device in anesthesia : with focus on breathing and upper airway physiology

    Author : Åse Lodenius; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Anesthesia-related airway complications are associated with hypoxia due to inability to secure or maintain the airway with subsequent insufficient ventilation and gas exchange. This thesis has explored the impact on airway integrity and respiratory regulation of two anesthetic compounds frequently used for sedation and a novel principle for oxygenation in patients at risk of hypoxia, in order to further improve patient safety during sedation and induction of anesthesia.

  5. 5. Role of POU/Oct transcription factors in Drosophila immunity

    Author : Widad Dantoft; Ylva Engström; Anne Uv; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Antimicrobial peptides; Drosophila; host-pathogen interaction; immune gene expression; immune signaling; NF-kB; microbiota; POU Oct transcription factors; protein degradation; stress response; transcriptional regulation; Molecular Biology; molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : In response to infection, Drosophila melanogaster relies on the ability to mount a robust and potent innate immune response, characterized by induction of cellular and humoral processes. While rapid immune induction is of utmost importance, it is equally important to restrict and repress immune gene expression, where and when it is not needed. READ MORE
