    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; food hypersensitivity; schoolchildren; epidemiology; food challenges; biomarkers;

    Sammanfattning : Background: This thesis focuses on the incidence and remission of reported food hypersensitivity in schoolchildren followed from 8 to 12 -years of age and the prevalence of hypersensitivity to milk, egg, cod and wheat among 12-year olds investigated by reported data, clinical investigation and double-blind placebo-controlled food challenges and biomarkers.Methods: The studies are mainly based on a population based cohort recruited in 2006 from three municipalities in Northern Sweden.

  2. 2. Inflammatory markers for evaluation of inflammatory bowel disease therapy

    Författare :Maria Lönnkvist; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : The lack of reliable biomarkers for predicting the clinical course or monitoring therapeutic outcome in inflammatory bowel disease is an indisputable problem. The aim of this study was to evaluate markers of inflammation during inflammatory bowel disease therapy. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Towards restoring intestinal health after pelvic radiotherapy - Lessons from dietary fiber intervention in a novel mouse model

    Författare :Piyush Patel; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pelvic radiotherapy; Gastrointestinal symptoms;

    Sammanfattning : Patients who have cancer in the pelvic region are at risk of developing gastrointestinal symptoms for weeks, months, or even years after receiving radiotherapy. These symptoms are triggered due to unwanted radiation-induced damage to surrounding non-cancerous tissues, resulting in the disruption of normal physiological functions. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Fetma och övervikt i barndomen - tidig identifiering av riskfaktorer

    Författare :Josefine Roswall; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; childhood obesity; early riskfactors; waist circumference; gut microbiota;

    Sammanfattning : Background: The incidence of childhood obesity is increasing. Many children become obese during preschool years and stay obese, with lifelong health consequences, such as impaired insulin sensitivity. There is growing evidence that factors during intrauterine life and infancy influence the risk of developing obesity. LÄS MER

  5. 5. 24s-Hydroxycholesterol : studies on regulatory mechanisms behind its formation in the brain and its potential use as a marker for neurodegeneration

    Författare :Marjan Shafaati; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Cholesterol 24-hydroxylase (CYP46A1) belongs to the cytochrome P450 super family and is responsible for conversion of cholesterol to the oxysterol 24S- hydroxycholesterol (24S-OHC). This structural modification allows 24S-OHC to traverse the blood brain barrier and this pathway is the major one for elimination of cholesterol from the mammalian brain. LÄS MER
