  3. 3. Salivary biomarkers : diagnostic potential in oral and systemic diseases in epidemiological surveys

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

    Author : Nilminie Rathnayake; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Interleukin-1β; -6 and -8;

    Abstract : Human saliva is a fluid with many biological functions, and essential for the maintenance of oral health. Several studies report local and systemic biomarkers appearing in saliva, including electrolytes, blood products, enzymes and tissue destruction molecules, inflammatory markers as well as proteins putatively associated with different diseases.

  4. 4. Cervical ripening : an inflammatory process involving cytokines, metalloproteinases and foetal fibronectin

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Women's and Children's Health

    Author : Maria Sennström; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cervical ripening; interleukin-8; interleukin-6; granulocyte colony stimulating factor; metalloproteinase- 1; -3 - and -8; foetal fibronectin;

    Abstract : The aim of the thesis was to identify cytokines, metalloproteinases and foetal fibronectin in human cervical tissue and to investigate if changes are of importance for the final cervical ripening. The human cervical ripening is a prerequisite for a normal start and progress of labour. READ MORE

  5. 5. Importance of Hyaluronan-CD44 Signaling in Tumor Progression Crosstalk with TGFβ and PDGF-BB Signaling

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Helena Porsch; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; extracellular matrix; growth factor; hyaluronan synthase; hyaluronidase; epithelial-mesenchymal transition; Molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology;

    Abstract : In order for solid tumors to metastasize, tumor cells must acquire the ability to invade the surrounding tissue and intravasate into blood- or lymph vessels, survive in the circulation and then extravasate at a distant site to form a new tumor. Overexpression of the glycosaminoglycan hyaluronan, and its adhesion receptor CD44, correlate with breast cancer progression. READ MORE
