  1. 1. Studies on the influence of sensory stimulation (acupuncture) on neuropeptide release in the saliva

    Author : Irena Dawidson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; acupuncture; substance P; neurokinin A; calcitonin gene-related peptide; vasoactive intestinal polypeptide; neuropeptide Y; xerostomia; salivary secretion rates;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to elucidate the mechanisms behind the effect of sensory stimulation (acupuncture) on the salivary flow rates of xerostomic patients. We hypothesised that the sensory stimulation activates the sensory and autonomic nervous systems, leading to an increased release of neuropeptides that influence salivary secretion in co-operation with or/and beside the classical neurotransmitters.

  2. 2. Temporary neonatal exposure to whole and hydrolysed cow's milk proteins. Studies of macromolecular absorption and immunological variables

    Author : Pekka O Juvonen; Lund Pediatrik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; beta-lactoglobulin; ovalbumin; cow s milk proteins; antibodies; IgG; IgE; secretory IgA; alpha-lactalbumin; breast-feeding; Pediatrics; Pediatri; early infant feeding; casein hydrolysate; Human milk; cow s milk;

    Abstract : The aim of this work was to study prospectively the effects of different feeding regimens during the first three days of life. A group of 129 infants were randomly assigned at birth to one of three feeding regimens: human milk (HM), cow's milk formula (CMF), or a casein hydrolysate formula (CHF). READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies on the prevalence of reduced salivary flow rate in relation to general health and dental caries, and effect of iron supplementation

    Author : Håkan Flink; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Unstimulated whole saliva; stimulated whole saliva; resting saliva; xerostomia; dry mouth; hyposalivation; caries; remaining teeth; body mass index; iron deficiency; serum ferritin; circadian rhythm;

    Abstract : Background: Reduced salivary flow is a condition that affects oral health. Its prevalence is unknown in young and middle-aged adults and there is no known treatment that permanently increases the salivary flow rate. Reduced salivary flow is related to dental caries, the most common oral disease. READ MORE

  4. 4. Salivary function after pediatric bone marrow transplantation

    Author : Mats Bågesund; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; bone marrow transplantation; total body irradiation; cancer; children; saliva; xerostomia; scintigraphy;

    Abstract : Salivary gland dysfunction is one of the oral long-term complications that most affect the quality of life among long-term survivors after treatment for malignant diseases. The aims of the studies in this thesis were to examine the effect of pediatric bone marrow transplantation (BMT) conditioning regimens on salivary function, caries-associated microflora, and development of dental caries; define risk factors of salivary dysfunction; evaluate subjective xerostomia; and study functional disturbances in the major salivary glands using salivary gland scintigraphy (SGS).

  5. 5. Salivary biomarkers in chronic muscle pain

    Author : Hajer Jasim; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Background: Muscle related temporomandibular disorders (TMD myalgia), one of the most common orofacial pain conditions, is characterized by facial pain and often accompanied by jaw movement limitations. Although the underlying biological mechanisms are still unclear, a cluster of proteins and peptides is assumed may mirror the pathophysiology. READ MORE
