  1. 1. Superoxide dismutase 1 and cataract

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Institutionen för klinisk vetenskap

    Författare :Eva Olofsson; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cataract; diabetes mellitus; nitric oxide; superoxide; superoxide dismutase; SOD1 null mice; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Ophtalmology Ophtalmiatrics; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Oftalmologi Oftalmiatrik; oftalmiatrik; Ophtalmology;

    Sammanfattning : Light and oxygen generate harmful reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the lens, causing biochemical changes that gradually disarrange the lens fibres resulting in light scattering and loss of transparency. In the healthy eye, this chronic exposure to oxidative stress may lead to age-related cataract. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Intraocular pressure clinical aspects and new measurement methods

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Gauti Jóhannesson; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intraocular pressure; glaucoma; tonometry; ISO; LASEK; CCT; curvature; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Ophtalmology Ophtalmiatrics; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Oftalmologi Oftalmiatrik; oftalmiatrik; Ophtalmology;

    Sammanfattning : Intraocular pressure (IOP) measurement is a routine procedure and a fundament in glaucoma care. Elevated IOP is the main risk factor for glaucoma, and to date, reduction of IOP is the only possible treatment. In a retrospective clinical material, the prevalence of open angle glaucoma was estimated on the west coast of Iceland. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Laminins and alpha11 integrin in the human eye importance in development and disease

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Oftalmiatrik

    Författare :Berit Byström; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; basement membranes; extracellular matrix; laminin; integrin; cornea; development; keratoconus; wound healing; remodeling; immunohistochemistry; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Ophtalmology Ophtalmiatrics; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Oftalmologi Oftalmiatrik;

    Sammanfattning : The extracellular matrix (ECM) offers a protective shelter for cells and provides signaling paths important for cell to cell communication. ECM consists of basement membranes (BM) and interstitial matrix. BMs provide mechanical support for parenchymal cells, influence cell proliferation, survival, migration and differentiation. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Aspects of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in Healthy Eyes and Eyes with Retinal Diseases

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitas Upsaliensis

    Författare :Urban Eriksson; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Ophtalmology Ophtalmiatrics; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Oftalmologi Oftalmiatrik; Ophtalmology; Oftalmiatrik;

    Sammanfattning : Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a technique in which cross-sectional images from intraocular tissue can be obtained. The quantitative and qualitative examinations are used for evaluating retinal diseases. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Retinopathy of Prematurity in Infants Born Before 27 Weeks of Gestation A National Population-based Study in Sweden During 2004-2007

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Dordi Austeng; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
