  1. 1. Mucosal dendritic cells in inflammatory bowel disease

    Författare :Sa'ad Yislam Salim; Johan D. Söderholm; Mary jo Wick; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Blood; Crohn s disease; dendritic cells; E. coli; FACS; follicle-associated; epithelium; human; ileum; mixed lymphocyte reaction; permeability; Peyer s patches; SAMP1 YitFc; Ussing chambers; villous epithelium; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Crohn's disease, a chronic inflammation of the bowel, is a multi-factorial condition where uncontrolled immune responses to luminal bacteria occur in genetically predisposed individuals. The first observable clinical signs are small ulcers that form at a specialised form of epithelium, follicle-associated epithelium (FAB). LÄS MER

  2. 2. Barrier function of the Follicle-Associated Epithelium in Stress and Crohn's disease

    Författare :Åsa Keita; Johan D. Söderholm; Ann-Charlott Ericson; Björn Weström; Linköpings universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Crohns sjukdom är en kronisk inflammatorisk tarmsjukdom av okänd orsak. Det tidigaste tecknet på Crohns sjukdom är mikroskopiska sår i det s.k. follikelassocierade epitelet (FAE) som täcker ansamlingar av immunceller i tarmen. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Targeting the prostate tumor microenvironment and vasculature : the role of castration, tumor-associated macrophages and pigment epithelium-derived factor

    Författare :Sofia Halin; Anders Bergh; Pernilla Wikström; Stina Rudolfsson; Carl-Henrik Heldin; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; angiogenesis; castration therapy; microenvironment; stroma; tumor-associated macrophages; pigment epithelium-derived factor; PEDF; vasculature; Pathology; Patologi; patologi; Pathology;

    Sammanfattning : BACKGROUND: Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among Swedish men. For patients with metastatic prostate cancer the standard therapy is castration, a treatment that initially provides symptomatic relief but unfortunately is not curative. New therapeutic targets for advanced prostate cancer are therefore needed. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Molecular and functional anatomy of the mouse olfactory epithelium

    Författare :Viktoria Vedin; Anna Berghard; Urban Lendahl; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; olfactory epithelium; odorant receptor; zone; odorant; gene expression; cell specification; c-Fos; dichlobenil; olfactometry; proliferation; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : The olfactory system is important for social behaviors, feeding and avoiding predators. Detection of odorous molecules is made by odorant receptors on specialized sensory neurons in the olfactory epithelial sheet. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Vitamin A regulated neuronal regeneration and homeostasis

    Författare :Sofia Håglin; Anna Berghard; Staffan Bohm; Leif Carlsson; Ola Hermanson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Activity dependent; Adult stem cells; Ageing; CYP26B1; Homeostasis; Metaplasia; Neurogenesis; Olfactory epithelium; Regeneration; Respiratory epithelium; Retinoic acid; Sensory map; Vitamin A;

    Sammanfattning : The olfactory epithelium is a dynamic tissue maintained by continuous neurogenesis throughout life. Upon injury, neurons and other olfactory cell types are regenerated through proliferation of horizontal stem cells. Some genes that regulate vitamin A metabolism are spatially expressed in the olfactory epithelium. LÄS MER
