Sammanfattning : Pre-gestational diabetes increases the risk of congenital malformation in the offspring and both morbidity and mortality in the diabetic mother and her offspring. During pregnancy, high glucose levels act as a teratogen through several cellular and biochemical pathways and increased production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) has a central role in diabetic embryopathy.

Sammanfattning : The mechanisms behind Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are largely unknown. The disease is to a large extent hereditary, and the best pathophysiological correlate to the severity of the symptoms is loss of synapses. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Low-frequency, long-range sound propagation over a seasurface has been calculated using a wide-angel Cranck-NicholsonParabolic Equation method. The model is developed toinvestigate noise from off-shore wind turbines. Thecalculations are made using normal meteorological conditions ofthe Baltic Sea. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : High mobility group box chromosomal protein 1 (HMGB 1) is a nuclear protein recently recognised as a pro-inflammatory cytokine with implications both in acute and in chronic inflammation. HMGB1 has been reported to act as a late mediator of septic shock in mice. LÄS MER
