  1. 1. Effects of GH and liver-derived IGF-I on growth and metabolism

    Författare :Klara Sjögren; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; GH; IGF-I; Insulin; GHRH; Somatostatin; GHS; Body growth; Body composition; Liver; Bone mineral content; Bone mineral density.;

    Sammanfattning : Growth hormone (GH) exerts major effects on body growth and metabolism. Insulin-like growth factor (IGF) is expressed in response to GH and is known to mediate many of the effects of GH. The largest expression of IGF is found in the liver although it is expressed in virtually every tissue of the body. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Origin, release and functional significance of the novel gastric hormone ghrelin

    Författare :Charlotta Dornonville de la Cour; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; toxicology; Farmakologi; pharmacognosy; pharmacy; Pharmacological sciences; bone metabolism; energy homeostasis; glucagon; insulin; secretion; pancreastatin; somatostatin; histamine; gastrin; gastric acid secretion; ghrelin; gastric motility; A-like cells; farmakognosi; farmaci; toxikologi;

    Sammanfattning : The novel gastric hormone ghrelin was discovered by virtue of its ability to release growth hormone (GH) via interaction with the so-called GH-secretagogue receptor (GHS-R). Earlier only synthetic agents were known to bind with the GHS-R, hence, ghrelin is the first identified endogenous ligand. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Gluten challenge in children with coeliac disease. With special reference to dose dependence and impact on growth markers and growth hormone secretion

    Författare :Ulf Jansson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Coeliac disease; children; gluten challenge; gluten dose; symptoms; enteropathy; ALP; ALAT; ASAT; albumin; IGF-I; GH.;

    Sammanfattning : Coeliac disease is a prevalent food intolerance in both children and adults, in which ingestion of gluten causes inflammation of the small intestine. This inflammation resolves upon gluten withdrawal, and gluten challenge induces relapse of enteropathy in susceptible individuals. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Growth hormone and somatolactin function during sexual maturation of female Atlantic salmon

    Författare :Susana Benedet Perea; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Growth hormone; somatolactin; insulin-like growth factor I; GH; SL; IGFI; GHR; SLR; IGFIR; ovary maturation; reproduction; Atlantic salmon; spawning; pituitary;

    Sammanfattning : Background and aims: The growth hormone-insulin-like growth factor I (GH-IGF-I) system is known to act during sexual maturation of female salmonids, but the specific roles are not known. Somatolactin (SL) is a pituitary hormone closely related to GH and is only found in fish. In some species, including salmonids, there are two forms, SLa and SLß. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Late effects in young adult survivors

    Författare :Marianne Jarfelt; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia; adult survivor; GH secretion; body composition; bone mineral density; exercise echocardiography;

    Sammanfattning : Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) is the most common malignancy in children. The 5-year survival rate has gradually increased from 5% in early 1970s to over 80% today. Until now most patients have been discharged from further follow up after puberty. LÄS MER
