    Sammanfattning : Inhaled nitric oxide (NO) relaxes smooth muscle of the airways and of pulmonary blood vessels and is used to treat lung diseases where the pulmonary vessels are constricted. NO has also been tested as a bronchodilator in asthmatic patients. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Water transport through perinatal skin Barrier function and aquaporin water channels

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Johan Ågren; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pediatrics; Preterm infant; Transepidermal water loss; Aquaporin; Skin biology; Hyperosmolarity; Pediatrik; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Paediatric medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Pediatrisk medicin; pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Sammanfattning : While constituting a well functioning interface with the aqueous environment in utero, the skin offers a poor barrier after very preterm birth. As a result, transepidermal water loss (TEWL) is high, a fact which has important clinical consequences in these infants. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Mechanisms for and Effects of Airway Epithelial Damage in Asthma

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Anne-Jacqueline Relova; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; asthma; airways; cytokines; epithelium; tight junctions; mast cells; Cellbiologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi; medicinsk cellbiologi; Medical Cell Biology;

    Sammanfattning : The airway epithelium plays a crucial role in protecting the underlying connective tissue (CT) from noxious agents. Damage and shedding of the epithelium are observed in the airways of asthma, cystic fibrosis and rhinitis patients. LÄS MER
