Sammanfattning : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by traffic and fall accidents, sports-related injuries and violence commonly results in life-changing disabilities. Cognitive impairments following TBI may be due to disruption of axons, stretched by the acceleration/deceleration forces of the initial impact, and their surrounding myelin in neuronal networks.

2. Two Types of Fibrils in ATTR Amyloidosis : Implications for Clinical Phenotype and Treatment Outcome
Sammanfattning : Systemic amyloidoses are a group of lethal diseases where proteins aggregate into fibrillar structures, called amyloid fibrils, that deposits throughout the body. Transthyretin (TTR) causes one type of amyloidosis, in which the aggregates mainly infiltrate nervous and cardiac tissue. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries are important causes of premature death and permanentdisability. To improve the treatment of CNS-injured patients increased knowledge about thepathophysiological events that mediate death or dysfunction of nervous tissue is urgently needed. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Glioma is a malignant primary brain tumor associated with short patient survival. Various growth factors and cytoskeletal proteins are correlated to glioma progression. In this thesis the effects of transforming growth factor alpha (TGFα) and glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) were studied. LÄS MER
5. Expression of TGF- isoforms, their receptors and related SMAD proteins in brain pathology : Immunohistochemical studies focusing on infarcts, abscesses and malignant gliomas
Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on the immunohistochemical expression of transforming growth factor beta(TGFβ) isoforms, their receptors and TGF-β-related SMAD proteins in brain pathology, chiefly in-farcts. One key question was whether the expressions of these compounds are altered within glial cells, endothelial cells of microvessels and other cell types in the vicinity of infarcts. LÄS MER
