  1. 1. Fractional moving blood volume in fetal organs estimated using power Doppler ultrasound

    Författare :Edgar Hernandez-Andrade; Lund Obstetrik och gynekologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reproduction; andrology; gynaecology; Obstetrics; sexuality; Obstetrik; gynekologi; andrologi; reproduktion; sexualitet; fetal adrenal gland; fetal lung; radionuclear microspheres; fetal lamb; perfusion; fetus; Power Doppler ultrasound; fractional moving blood volume;

    Sammanfattning : Power Doppler ultrasound (PDU) is a sensitive technique to detect slow blood movement. The aim of the present study was to develop a standardized method for quantification of the PDU signals recorded from a specific region of interest (ROI) within fetal organs. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Mechanisms of Lung Injury in a Mouse Model of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia

    Författare :Anna Hogmalm; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :bronchopulmonary dysplasia; transgenic mice; inflammation; lung; interleukin-1; αvβ6 integrin; mmp-9; surfactant;

    Sammanfattning : Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a chronic lung disease that affects preterm infants. Increased levels of inflammatory mediators in the amniotic fluid and in the lungs of preterm infants are associated with the development of BPD. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Mesenchymal stromal cells in lung tissue

    Författare :Sara Rolandsson Enes; Lungbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mesenchymal stromal cells; lung transplantation; bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome; obliterative bronchiolitis; extracellular matrix;

    Sammanfattning : Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) are multipotent cells with immunomodulatory and regenerative properties. During recent years, the interest in using MSC for clinical approaches for various diseases have increased. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Influence of inflammation and of stage of lung development on the development of neonatal lung injury

    Författare :Erica Bäckström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :premature birth; BPD; inflammation; IL-1β; lung development; gastric aspirates;

    Sammanfattning : Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a major cause of mortality and long-term morbidity in prematurely born infants. Pulmonary inflammation, and abnormal alveolar and vascular development of the lung are histological characteristics of BPD. Interleukin (IL)-1β is a central cytokine in inflammation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Lung growth and lung hypoplasia in congenital diaphragmatic hernia

    Författare :Carmen Mesas Burgos; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Pulmonary hypoplasia and persistent pulmonary hypertension are the main causes of mortality and morbidity in newborns with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). Prenatal tracheal occlusion or ligation (TL) is known to accelerate lung growth, but the mechanism of this is poorly understood. LÄS MER
