  1. 1. The Clinical and Pathological Spectrum of Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathies : Implications for pathogenesis, classification and diagnosis

    Författare :Olof Danielsson; Jan Ernerudh; Magnus Vrethem; Göran Solders; Linköpings universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Background: Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM) constitute a heterogeneous group of diseases with severe consequences for the life of affected patients. Dermatomyositis, polymyositis and inclusion body myositis (IBM) are the classical representatives of this group. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Sources of preanalytical error in primary health care : implications for patient safety

    Författare :Johan Söderberg; Christine Brulin; Ewa Idvall; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; blood specimen collection; haemolysis; medical errors; phlebotomy; preanalytical; primary health care; quality indicators; quality of health care; questionnaires; specimen handling; Clinical chemistry; Klinisk kemi; medicin; Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Background Venous blood tests constitute an important part in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. However, test results are often viewed as objective values rather than the end result of a complex process. This has clinical importance since most errors arise before the sample reaches the laboratory. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Two Types of Fibrils in ATTR Amyloidosis : Implications for Clinical Phenotype and Treatment Outcome

    Sammanfattning : Systemic amyloidoses are a group of lethal diseases where proteins aggregate into fibrillar structures, called amyloid fibrils, that deposits throughout the body. Transthyretin (TTR) causes one type of amyloidosis, in which the aggregates mainly infiltrate nervous and cardiac tissue. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Preanalytical errors in hospitals : implications for quality improvement of blood sample collection

    Författare :Olof Wallin; Christine Brulin; Kjell Grankvist; Johan Hultdin; Bethany van Guelpen; Ania Willman; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; medical errors; preanalytical; quality improvement; questionnaire; venous blood sampling; Clinical chemistry; Klinisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Most errors in the venous blood testing process are preanalytical, i.e. they occur before the sample reaches the laboratory. Unlike the laboratory analysis, the preanalytical phase involves several error-prone manual tasks not easily avoided with technological solutions. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Sentinel Node in Clinical Practice : Implications for Breast Cancer Treatment and Prognosis

    Författare :Yvette Andersson; Leif Bergkvist; Jan Frisell; Jana de Boniface; Robert Mansel; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; breast cancer; sentinel node; micrometastases; survival; non-sentinel node metastases;

    Sammanfattning : The introduction of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) has conveyed several new issues, such as the risk of false negativity, long-term consequences, the prognostic significance of micrometastases and whether ALND can be omitted in sentinel lymph node- (SLN) positive patients.Archived SLN specimens from 50 false negative patients and 107 true negative controls were serially sectioned and stained with immunohistochemistry.
