  1. 1. Tissue engineering in blood vessels

    Författare :Gisela Helenius; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :tissue engineering; vascular graft; endothelial cells; smooth muscle cells; thrombogenicity; mechanical properties; scaffold; bacterial cellulose;

    Sammanfattning : Severely occluded coronary- and peripheral arteries, caused by atherosclerotic plaques, are treated with bypass surgery. Autologous veins are the most commonly used replacement graft. Among the patients that need a vascular bypass, 5-10% lack appropriate replacement veins due to previous surgery of bad quality of the vessels. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Cervical screening with primary HPV : from research to clinical effectiveness

    Författare :Lovisa Bergengren; Gisela Helenius; Mats Karlsson; Matts Olovsson; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cervical cancer; screening; human papillomavirus HPV ; HPV prevalence; HPV genotypes; precancerous lesion; HSIL; self-sampling; postmenopausal women; health economy;

    Sammanfattning : Organized cervical screening has greatly reduced the incidence of cervical cancer where implemented. Human papilloma virus (HPV) is the cause of cervical cancer, and in later years, convincing evidence has led to cervical screening with HPV as the primary method being implemented around the world.

  4. 4. Identification of miRNA expression profiles for diagnosis and prognosis of prostate cancer

    Författare :Jessica Carlsson; Karin Klinga Levan; Björn Olsson; Gisela Helenius; Pernilla Wikström; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; microRNAs; prostate zones; normalization; endogenous controls; Medicin; Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Cancer of the prostate (CaP) is the most common malignancy diagnosed in men in the Western society. During the last years, prostate specific antigen (PSA) has been used as a biomarker for CaP, although a high PSA value is not specific for CaP. Thus, there is an urgent need for new and improved diagnostic markers for CaP. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Infection induced chronic inflammation and it's association with prostate cancer initiation and progression

    Författare :Sabina Davidsson; Ove Andrén; Bo Söderquist; Jennifer Rider; Gisela Helenius; Jan-Erik Damber; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Prostate cancer; chronic inflammation; CD4 helper T cells; CD8 cytotoxic T cells; regulatory T cells; Propionibacterium acnes; Medicin; Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : An association between cancer development and inflammation has long been suggested. Approximately 20% of all human cancers in adults are assumed to result from chronic inflammation. The aim of this thesis was to investigate if infection-induced chronic inflammation plays a role in prostate carcinogenesis. LÄS MER
