  1. 1. Genetic and epidemiological aspects of implantation defects Studies on recurrent miscarriage, preeclampsia and oocyte donation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Evangelia Elenis; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Angiogenesis; genetic polymorphism; gestational hypertensive disorders; Histidine-rich glycoprotein; HRG; implantation defect; oocyte donation; placentation; preeclampsia; recurrent miscarriage; SNP.; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Implantation requires complex molecular and cellular events involving coagulation, angiogenesis and immunological processes that need to be well regulated for a pregnancy to establish and progress normally.  The overall aim of this thesis was to study different models associated with atypical angiogenesis, impaired implantation and/or placentation, such as recurrent miscarriage (RM), oocyte donation (OD) and preeclampsia.

  2. 2. The Histidine-rich Glycoprotein in Reproduction

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karin E Lindgren; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Angiogenesis; embryo culture medium; embryogenesis; embryonic secretome; endometrium; histidine-rich glycoprotein; human embryo development; human embryo implantation; human endometrial endothelial cells; in vitro fertilisation; infertility; male infertility; proximity extension assay; recurrent miscarriage; single nucleotide polymorphism; sperm quality; time-lapse technique; vascular endothelial growth factor;

    Abstract : Infertility affects 15% of reproductive-aged couples. The milieu surrounding the growing embryo is of outmost importance, and should be optimised during in vitro fertilisation (IVF). Many biological processes, such as angiogenesis, coagulation, and immune processes need to be well regulated for a pregnancy to occur and progress normally. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hypothyroidism and Pregnancy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Michaela Granfors; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; phosphodiesterase 8B; recurrent miscarriage; single nucleotide polymorphism; thyroid; guidelines; hypothyroidism; pregnancy; survey; thyroid testing; screening; iodine; iodine deficiency; median urinary iodine concentration; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Hypothyroidism is a common endocrine disorder affecting women of reproductive age. On a global level, iodine deficiency is still the most common cause of hypothyroidism. Also genetic variations, in particular SNP rs4704397 in the PDE8B gene, are responsible for a significant proportion of TSH variations. READ MORE

  4. 4. Steroid metabolism in human reproductive organs

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Laboratory Medicine

    Author : Anna Helena Karypidis; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Androgens are involved in the development of prostate cancer. Both UGT2B17 and CYP7B1 are involved in the metabolism of androgens and are highly abundant in the prostate. Deletion of the UGT2B17 gene is associated with low or undetectable urinary testosterone levels. READ MORE

  5. 5. Characterizing retained placenta : epidemiology and pathophysiology of a critical obstetric disorder

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science and Education, Södersjukhuset

    Author : Margit Endler; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Background: Retained placenta is associated with severe postpartum hemorrhage but its etiology and pathophysiology are largely unknown. Certain studies have suggested that retained placenta is associated to defective placentation disorders- pregnancy disorders with an initial defective placentation resulting in increased oxidative stress.
