Sammanfattning : Background & Aims: Primary liver cancer is the second most common cause of death from cancer worldwide. In the western world, the majority of liver malignancies consist of colorectal metastases. Liver resection is the primary treatment for cure in liver tumor disease. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The liver is the central organ for lipid, lipoprotein and glucose homeostasis, thus hepatic metabolic disturbances can predispose individuals to develop cardiometabolic disorders (CMD) such as atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases (ASCVD), type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).The overall aim of this thesis was to expand the knowledge on how genetic and pharmacological interventions on hepatic and intestinal cholesterol metabolism could affect the pathophysiology of CMD.

Sammanfattning : The increasing prevalence of obesity is a worldwide health problem closely linked to diet and lifestyle factors. Obesity is associated with increased risk of several metabolic disorders including insulin resistance, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and type 2 diabetes. LÄS MER
4. Ultrasound based shear wave elastography of the liver : a non-invasive method for evaluation of liver disease
Sammanfattning : Background: Detecting liver disease at an early stage is important, given that early intervention decreases the risk of developing cirrhosis and subsequently hepatocellular cancer (HCC). The non-invasive ultrasound-based shear wave elastography (SWE) has been used clinically for a decade to assess liver stiffness. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The liver X receptors (LXRs) are ligand activated transcription factors involved in the regulation of metabolic genes. LXRs are considered potential drug targets to treat metabolic disorders, however, unwanted side effects, as revealed from rodent studies, include increased lipogenesis in the liver and increased plasma triglyceride levels.
