  1. 1. Exercise physiology and cardiac function. Aspects on determinants of maximal oxygen uptake

    Author : Katarina Steding Ehrenborg; Lund Klinisk fysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; respiratory indices; peak oxygen uptake; heart failure; cardiac magnetic resonance imaging; exercise physiology;

    Abstract : Although the athlete's heart has been of interest for over 100 years, further characterization of the athletes heart is needed in order to understand how training affects cardiac dimensions and function. Few studies have investigated the effects of training in female athletes and few have compared males and females. READ MORE

  2. 2. Proton pathways in energy conversion : K-pathway analogs in O2- and NO-reductases

    Author : Nathalie Gonska; Pia Ädelroth; Alessandro Giuffré; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; heme-copper oxidase; cytochrome c oxidase; membrane protein; respiration; electron transfer; proton transfer; redox reaction; metalloprotein; non-heme iron; cytochrome ba3; flow-flash; carbon monoxide; liposome; respiratory control ratio; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : Oxygen and nitric oxide reductases are enzymes found in aerobic and anaerobic respiration, respectively. Both enzyme groups belong to the superfamily of Heme-Copper Oxidases, which is further divided into several subgroups: oxygen-reducing enzymes into A-, B- and C-type and nitric oxide reductases into qNORs and cNORs.

  3. 3. Severe and moderate alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency at the age of 30

    Author : Elisabeth Bernspång; allergologi och palliativ medicin Lungmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cohort; screening; alpha-1-antitrypsin; lung function; CT densitometry; liver;

    Abstract : Alpha-1-antitrypsin (AAT) is a glycoprotein synthesised in the liver. Its main role is to protect lung tissue from destruction by neutrophil elastase. In severe (PiZZ) AAT deficiency, there is an increased risk of emphysema, especially in smokers. READ MORE

  4. 4. Enamel hypomineralization in permanent first molars. A clinical, histo-morphological and biochemical study

    Author : Birgitta Jälevik; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adolescent; Calcium Metabolism Disorders; complications; Child; Child; Preschool; Dental Enamel; chemistry; Dental Enamel Hypoplasia; epidemiology; etiology; metabolism; pathology; Female; Humans; Male; Molar; pathology; Prevalence; Respiratory Insufficiency; complications; Spectrometry; Mass; Secondary Ion; Sweden; epidemiology;

    Abstract : Hypomineralization in the permanent first molars was common in a group of 516 Swedish 8-year-old children. Ninety-five children (18.4%) had at least one molar with demarcated opacity. The incisors frequently displayed opacities concomitantly. READ MORE

  5. 5. Air pollution, genetic susceptibility and inflammation - Focusing on cardiovascular effects in adults and respiratory effects in children

    Author : Sviatlana Panasevich; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Air pollution exposure can induce low-grade systemic inflammation with consequences for both cardiovascular and respiratory systems. The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate the effects of air pollutants on the development of complex inflammatory diseases (myocardial infarction and respiratory disease), and genetically determined susceptibility for these effects, using epidemiologic methodology.
