1. Islet Transplantation a Technical Challenge : Studies on Human Pancreas Preservation and Enzymatic Digestion
Sammanfattning : Islet transplantation has found its niche in diabetes treatment. It has contributed to a better quality of life and better glycemic control of patients with diabetes suffering from severe hypoglycemia that are not eligible for vascularized pancreas transplantation. Islet isolation is a technically challenging procedure. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The causes of hypertension (HT) and type 2 diabetes (T2DM) are mainly unknown, but they arise from interplay between several genetic and environmental factors. The aim of this thesis was to investigate whether polymorphisms in putative candidate genes for HT increase the susceptibility to HT and/or T2DM. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : High blood pressure (BP) is associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Both genetic and environmental factors are implicated in BP homeostatsis and hypertension development. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a complex, metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycaemia because of defects in insulin secretion and sensitivity. The rapid increase in T2D is likely to reflect the influence of both genetic and environmental factors in disease development. However, the genetic aetiology of T2D remains largely unknown. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) comprises about 10% of patients initially diagnosed with type 2 diabetes but who are positive for pancreatic islet antibodies, especially to glutamic acid decarboxylase (GADabs). The present studies focused on clinical, genetic and metabolic characterisation of patients with LADA. LÄS MER
