  1. 1. Risc factors and associated disorders of celiac disease

    Author : Karl Mårild; Jonas F. Ludvigsson; Olof Stephansson; Anders Paerregaard; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Celiac disease; cohort study; Down syndrome; influenza; pediatrics; population-based; pregnancy outcome; psychological stress; registry; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Background: Celiac disease (CD) is an immune-mediated enteropathy induced by dietary gluten. CD is prevalent in some 1 % of the general population. In recent decades there has been a marked increase in CD prevalence that may be influenced by environmental risk factors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Adenoviral Control of RNAi/miRNA Pathways in Human Cells

    Author : Ning Xu; Göran Akusjärvi; Fredrik Söderbom; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : RNA interference (RNAi) is a diverse, conserved regulatory mechanism in eukaryotic cells, which silences the target gene expression in a homology-dependent manner. Although it has been well documented that RNAi is an antiviral mechanism in plants and insects, it is still unclear whether RNAi naturally limits viral infections in vertebrates. READ MORE

  3. 3. Connecting Systemic RNAi to the Endomembrane System in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Author : Benjamin T. Holmgren; Andrea Hinas; Gerhart Wagner; Peter Brodersen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Systemic RNAi; RNAi inheritance; Endomembrane system; Late endosome; SID-5; SEC-22; SYX-6; C12D8.1; RNA; Biology with specialization in Molecular Cell Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär cellbiologi;

    Abstract : RNA interference (RNAi) is a gene regulation mechanism conserved among eukaryotes. To silence gene expression, RNAi relies on a short single-stranded guide RNA to steer the RNA-induced Silencing Complex (RISC) to mRNAs with guide strand-complementary sequences. RNAi is a highly membrane-associated process. READ MORE

  4. 4. Out-of-field doses from proton therapy and doses from CBCT imaging : Risk of radiation-induced second cancer from modern radiotherapy

    Author : Oscar Ardenfors; Irena Gudowska; Alexandru Dasu; Cathrine Jonsson; Pawel Olko; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Medical Radiation Physics; medicinsk strålningsfysik;

    Abstract : The use of ionizing radiation for treatment of cancer diseases is continuously increasing as patient survival is improving and new treatment techniques are emerging. While this development is beneficial for curing primary tumors, concerns have been raised regarding the unwanted dose contribution to healthy tissues of patients and the associated risk of radiation-induced second cancer (RISC).

  5. 5. Recovery from Breast Cancer : Investigating the role of resilience in breast cancer survivorship

    Author : Katarina Velickovic; Institutionen för psykologi; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Breast Cancer; Resilience; Health-Related Quality of Life; Survivorship;

    Abstract : Breast cancer is a common event among women, one in ten women receiving a breast cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. The experience of breast cancer is a complex process that entails a multitude of interlinked potentially highly stressful events. READ MORE
