  1. 1. Urinary Biomarkers and Patient Outcome in Chronic Kidney Disease and Atherosclerotic Heart Disease: The value of IgM-uria and IgG-uria

    University dissertation from Department of Nephrology, Lund University

    Author : Rafid Tofik; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Proteinuria; Albuminuria; urine IgM; urine IgG; glomerulonephritis; chronic kidney disease; atherosclerosis; cardiovascular disease; diabetic kidney disease.;

    Abstract : Risk stratification of patients with chronic kidney disease and atherosclerotic heart disease is crucial. Microalbuminuria (MA) is associated with an increased risk of kidney and cardiovascular (CV) death, especially in patients with diabetes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Protein adducts in plasma as biomarkers of exposure to and risk of organic acid anhydrides

    University dissertation from Department of Nephrology, Lund University

    Author : Seema Rosqvist; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; GC-MS; IgG; IgE; exposure-response; serum albumin; biological monitoring; Hexahydrophthalic anhydride; methylhexahydrophthalic anhydride; OEL; Occupational health; industrial medicine; Yrkesmedicin; arbetsmiljömedicin;

    Abstract : Organic acid anhydrides (OAAs) are important industrial chemicals but also potent inducers of airways diseases. Many exposed workers develop specific IgE and IgG antibodies. Hexahydrophthalic anhydride (HHPA) and methylhexahydrophthalic anhydride (MHHPA) are two particularly sensitising OAAs. READ MORE

  3. 3. Polyurethane - occupational exposure, biomarkers and symptoms

    University dissertation from (Margareta Littorin), Department of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, University Hospital, S- 221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Margareta Littorin; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]

    Abstract : Background: Chlamydia trachomatis in women is a risk factor for tubal factor infertility and extra uterine pregnancies, but the impact of a C. trachomatis infection on male fertility is unclear. It is also hypothesized that persistent infection with C. trachomatis, or other microorganisms, might initiate/promote ovarian tumor development. READ MORE
