    Sammanfattning : New biomarkers are needed to improve knowledge about pathophysiology, in order to provide earlier correct diagnosis and to follow disease progression of the neurodegenerative diseases amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinson's disease (PD). The aim of this thesis was to find new biomarkers for these diseases. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Charcot’s disease, motor neuron disease (MND) and Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a deadly, adult-onset neurodegenerative disorder characterized by progressive loss of upper and lower motor neurons, resulting in evolving paresis of the linked muscles. ALS is defined by classical features of the disease, but may present as a wide spectrum of phenotypes. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Functional consequences of dopaminergic degeneration : Clinical and experimental studies using a novel stabilizer of dopaminergic systems

    Författare :Anna Ekesbo; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; Parkinson s disease; positron emission tomography; 6-OHDA; MPTP; dyskinesia; dopaminergic degeneration; - -OSU6162; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi; Neurology; neurologi;

    Sammanfattning : Since the introduction of levodopa for the treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD) 30 yearsago, the emergence of motor complications, such as levodopa-induced dyskinesias (LID), hasbeen a major clinical problem in advanced stages of the disease. Clinical and preclinical studieshave revealed a number of functional changes in the dopaminergic system that may be ofimportance for the emergence of LIDs. LÄS MER

  4. 4. On pathophysiological mechanisms in amyothrophic lateral sclerosis

    Författare :Eva Grundström; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a fatal, progressive neurodegenerative disease with unknown ethiology. The aim of this study was to increase understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms of dying motor neurons and wasting muscle tissue in this particular disorder. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Sexual function in women with neurological disorders

    Författare :Birgitta Hulter; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this investigation was to study sexual function in women with neurological disorders at fairly distinct and separate locations. The dissertation comprises descriptive, retrospective, quantitative studies on sexual functioning in women with hypothalamo-pituitary disorders (HPD) (n:48), multiple sclerosis (MS)(n:47), and insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) (n:42).
