  1. 1. The vagina : morphological, functional and ecological aspects

    Författare :Inga Sjöberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; vagina; vaginal epithelium; vaginal fluid; morphometry; bacterial ecology; endotoxins; vaginosis;

    Sammanfattning : The vagina is one organ of the body which has not been studied exhaustively. Moreover, most of the studies found in the contemporary literature have been performed on women affected by a variety of genital diseases. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Nitric oxide synthase in female reproductive and urinary organs: Hormonal regulation and functional significance

    Författare :Jassim Al-Hijji; Lund Obstetrik och gynekologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; gynaecology; Obstetrics; estrogen; trophoblast; placenta; vagina; Nitric oxide; uterus; ovarian steroids; andrology; reproduction; sexuality; Obstetrik; gynekologi; andrologi; reproduktion; sexualitet;

    Sammanfattning : Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) activity was studied in cytosolic and particulate fractions in reproductive organs from rabbit (uterus and vagina) and rat (uterus, vagina and cervix). NOS was found predominantly in cytosolic fractions in all tissues and the activity of NOS in both fractions was highly Ca2+ dependent. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Lactobacillus iners and the normal vaginal flora

    Författare :Tell Jakobsson; Urban Forsum; Lars Fåhraeus; Per-Göran Larsson; Ingegerd Adlerberth; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vagina; microbes; lactobacilli; phenotypic methods; molecular biology; 16S rRNA; pyrosequencing; Clinical bacteriology; Klinisk bakteriologi;

    Sammanfattning : The ecological niche of the vagina contains a large number of different microbes that are constantly interacting with each other and the host. Culture methods have not been sufficient in order to resolve the complexity of the normal vaginal flora. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Studies on nerve terminations in human mucosa and skin

    Författare :Marita Hilliges; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Epithelium; herpes simplex; immunohistochemisry; Merkel cell; mucosa; nerves; oral; PGP 9.5; skin; stereology; urinary incontinence; vagina.;

    Sammanfattning : - In spite of their accessibility and important sensory function,the nervous tissue components of human oral and vaginal mucosa and skin have beensubject to very few, if any, systematic investigations. Studies on the innervationof oral tissues have mainly focused on the dental pulp, the periodontium and thegingiva, probably because of specific clinical interest, thus largely neglectingthe mucosa.

  5. 5. Group B streptococcus capsular polysaccharide - Cholera toxin B subunit conjugate vaccine for mucosal immunisation : development and preclinical evaluation of experimental conjugate vaccines

    Författare :Xuzhuang Shen; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Group B streptococci (GBS) can colonize the female genital and rectal tracts and cause invasive infection in susceptible newborns. An optimally effective GBS vaccine should induce both mucosal and systemic immunity. LÄS MER
