  1. 1. Hepatocyte growth factor : Studies on local and systemic release and effects during infectious disease; in vivo and in vitro

    Författare :Fariba Nayeri; Minoca Niste'r; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The interaction of mesenchymal and epithelial cells that occurs after organ injuries results in enhanced production of cytokines, such as hepatocyte growth factor (HGF). HGF is a glycoprotein with unique properties that contribute to wound healing after injuries. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Quantitative Evaluation of Contrast Agent Dynamics in Liver MRI

    Författare :Nils Dahlström; Örjan Smedby; Torkel Brismar; Anders Ynnerman; Carsten Thomsen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Liver; spleen; hepatobiliary system; liver function; MRI; DCE-MRI; Gd-EOBDTPA; Gd-BOPTA; pharmacokinetic; hepatocyte; relaxivity.; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The studies presented here evaluate the biliary, parenchymal and vascular enhancement effects of two T1-shortening liver-specific contrast agents, Gd-BOPTA and Gd-EOB-DTPA, in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of healthy subjects and of patients.Ten healthy volunteers were examined with both contrast agents in a 1.

  3. 3. Growth hormone regulation of LFABP and PPARa. Genes involved in hepatic lipid metabolism

    Författare :Linda Carlsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Growth hormone; fatty acids; rat; hepatocyte; LFABP; C EBPa; PPARa;

    Sammanfattning : Growth hormone (GH) is known to have several important effects in the control of metabolism. The aim of these studies was to investigate how GH regulates genes involved in fatty acid transport and metabolism in the liver and the interaction between GH and fatty acids in this regulation.

  4. 4. Hepatocyte transplantation : experimental and clinical studies

    Författare :Carl Jorns; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Hepatocyte transplantation is an experimental treatment for patients with end-stage liver disease and inborn metabolic liver disorders. Studies in animal models and human trials have shown that allogenic hepatocytes infused through the portal vein physiologically integrate into the liver parenchyma, replacing missing liver function.

  5. 5. Thromboinflammation : in a Model of Hepatocyte Transplantation

    Författare :Elisabet Gustafson; Bo Nilsson; Staffan Meurling; Ewa Ellis; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Hepatocyte transplantation is an attractive method for the treatment of metabolic liver disease and acute liver failure. The clinical application of this method has been hampered by a large initial loss of transplanted cells. LÄS MER
