  1. 1. Kangaroo Mother Care : Parents’ experiences and patterns of application in two Swedish neonatal intensive care units

    Författare :Ylva Thernström Blomqvist; Christine Rubertsson; Kerstin Hedberg Nyqvist; Uwe Ewald; Mats Eriksson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kangaroo Mother Care; Neonatal intensive care unit; Preterm infant; Nursing; Parenting; Pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Sammanfattning : Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) is an alternative model of care that prevents parent-infant separation when preterm infants need neonatal intensive care by skin-to-skin contact between infants and their parents. KMC is also a strategy that involves parents in their infants’ care and enables them to assume the responsibility for the care. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : A treatment strategy for cancer is the suppression of tumor growth by directing an immune response to the tumor vessels, which will destroy the tissue.In this thesis we describe the development of a vaccine that targets antigens expressed around angiogenic vasculature in most solid tumors.

    Sammanfattning : High-throughput drug screening (HTS) in live cells is often a vital part of the preclinical anticancer drug discovery process. So far, two-dimensional (2D) monolayer cell cultures have been the most prevalent model in HTS endeavors. However, 2D cell cultures often fail to recapitulate the complex microenvironments of in vivo tumors. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic and systemic autoimmune disease that primarily affects women during the childbearing years. SLE is characterized by the production of autoantibodies against nucleic acids and their interacting proteins. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Functional Role of Genetic Polymorphisms Associated with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Författare :Sara E Löfgren; Ulf Gyllensten; Jan Hillert; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic and complex autoimmune disorder characterized by a failure in the mechanism of self-tolerance and production of autoantibodies, potentially affecting any organ in the body. The genetic factors behind the disease have been extensively studied in the past years and to date a list of more than 30 loci have been associated with SLE. LÄS MER
