6. Fuchs’ endothelial corneal dystrophy : Genetic aetiology and as a risk factor in cataract surgery
Sammanfattning : Fuchs’ endothelial corneal dystrophy (FECD) is a bilateral, often hereditary degenerative corneal disease, in which the disrupted endothelial cell function causes corneal swelling and reduced vision. An early clinical sign of FECD is corneal guttata, an irregularity of the endothelial layer. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Objective: Cardiovascular disease is a major contributor to morbidity and mortality after organ transplantation. Development of cardiovascular risk factors, like hypertension, is common after transplantation. LÄS MER
8. Endogenous tissue-type plasminogen activator andendothelial function in vivo. A clinical perspective
Sammanfattning : Endogenous fibrinolysis is initiated by the glycoprotein tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA), which is released from the vascular endothelium. Plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) is the main inhibitor of tPA. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Hypoxia, or deficient oxygen levels, is an inherent feature of rapidly expanding tumor tissue. In order to survive in the hostile, hypoxic environment and to restore the supply of oxygen and nutrients tumor cells activate a variety of adaptive mechanisms. Among them, hypoxia-induced angiogenesis, i.e. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Cancer metastasis is the main lethal cause for cancer patients today. It has been demonstrated that angiogenesis is crucial for growth of both primary tumors and metastasis. LÄS MER
