  1. 1. Oligodendrocyte pathology following Traumatic Brain Injury : Experimental and clinical studies

    Författare :Johanna Flygt; Niklas Marklund; Fredrik Piehl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Traumatic brain injury; oligodendrocytes; oligodendrocyte progenitor cells; interleukin 1-β; central fluid percussion injury; Neurokirurgi; Neurosurgery; Neurokirurgi; Neurosurgery;

    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.

    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

  3. 3. Inflammatory mechanisms in experimental CNS trauma

    Författare :Jonas Isaksson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Spinal cord injury; brain injury; ICAM-1; P-selectin; iNOS; inflammation; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    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

  4. 4. Experimental studies on glioma cell motility and proliferation

    Författare :Adila Salih El-Obeid; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; glioma; TGF-α; EGFR; GFAP; motility; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    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. 5. Expression of TGF- isoforms, their receptors and related SMAD proteins in brain pathology : Immunohistochemical studies focusing on infarcts, abscesses and malignant gliomas

    Författare :Ahmad Khaled Ata; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; TGF-beta receptor; SMAD; brain; infarct; abscess; glioma; experimental; human; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Genetics; genetik;

    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
