  1. 6. Metabolism of articular cartilage proteoglycans in vitro effects of synovial membrane products and mechanical pressure

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Agneta Klämfeldt; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [1982]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Articular cartilage; Proteoglycan metabolism; Synovial membrane products; Mechanical stress; Indom ethacin; Glucocorticoids; Prostaglandins; Osteoarthritis; Rheumatoid arthritis;

    Sammanfattning : The effect of synovial membrane products and mechanical pressure upon the metabolism of articular cartilage proteoglycans has been studied in vitro. The degradation of cartilage proteoglycans was studied in an organ culture system and measured as the release of [35S ] sulphate from prelabelled cartilage. LÄS MER

  2. 7. Expression and Regulation of Neuropeptide Y (NPY) in the Islets of Langerhans

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Physiology and Neuroscience, Lund University

    Författare :Ulrika Myrsén Axcrona; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1997]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocrinology; regulatory peptides; diabetes; glucocorticoids; beta cell; islet hormones; neuropeptide Y; insulin; secreting systems; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Sammanfattning : Popular Abstract in Swedish Bukspottkörteln består av exokrin och endokrin vävnad. Den exokrina vävnaden utsöndrar en bukspottsaft rik på enzymer som hjälper till att bryta ner vår föda i mindre beståndsdelar. Den endokrina vävnaden insöndrar hormoner som hjälper till att reglera sockernivåerna i blodet. LÄS MER

  3. 8. Effects of Asthma Combination Therapy on Extracellular Matrix Remodeling in Human Lung Fibroblasts

    Detta är en avhandling från Lung Biology

    Författare :Lizbet Todorova; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Asthma; Proteoglycans; Lung fibroblasts; Collagen; Airway remodeling; TGFβ; Glucocorticoids; Combination therapy.; β2-agonist; MMPs;

    Sammanfattning : Fibroblasts, being one of the resident and structural cells of the lung, have the capacity to produce inflammatory mediators, cytokines and extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins perpetuating the inflammation in the airways of asthmatics. Airway remodeling is also a prominent feature of asthma that affects the lung function causing a thickening of the airways. LÄS MER

  4. 9. Interplay between hormones, nutrients and adipose depots in the regulation of insulin sensitivity an experimental study in rat and human adipocytes

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Folkhälsa och klinisk medicin

    Författare :Magdalena Lundgren; Umeå universitet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; adipose tissue; cAMP; glucocorticoids; glucose; insulin; insulin resistance; lipolysis; subcutaneous fat; type 2 diabetes; visceral fat; VETERINARY MEDICINE Medicine; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Medicin;

    Sammanfattning : Obesity and specifically central obesity is related to insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes and other components of the so-called metabolic syndrome. The aim of this study was to elucidate the interplay between hormones, nutrients and adipose depots in normal and insulin-resistant fat cell metabolism. LÄS MER

  5. 10. Systems Biology Based Approaches to Identify Biomarkers in Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Hui Wang; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glucocorticoids; Seasonal allergic rhinitis; Biomarkers; Gene expression microarray analysis; Proteomics; Multivariate analysis; Pathway analysis;

    Sammanfattning : Glucocorticoids (GC) are the most effective anti-inflammatory treatment for seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR). However, a few patients with SAR show poor response to GC treatment. Hence, there is a clinical need to find biomarkers to predict and monitor treatment response. LÄS MER
