  1. 1. Tumor Stroma in Anaplastic Thyroid Carcinoma : Interstitial Collagen and Tumor Interstitial Fluid Pressure

    Författare :Ellen Lammerts; Lucio Nitsch; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Collagen I synthesis; Fibrosis; Tumor - stroma interactions; PDGF; TGF-β; Inhibitor; Cell cycle; Tumor growth; Hyaluronan; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Medical Biochemistry; medicinsk biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) is an aggressive malignancy in man with stromal fibrosis as one of the main features. Carcinoma cells synthesized no or little collagen I protein. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Extracellular Matrix and Actin Cytoskeleton - the Control Unit of Interstitial Fluid Volume

    Författare :Vahid Reyhani; Kristofer Rubin; Markella Ponticos; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Collagen; fibrin; integrins; PDGF-BB; gel contraction; fluid homeostasis; interstitial fluid pressure; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : The regulation of fluid (water) volume in the body is crucial for tissue homeostasis. The interstitial fluid, which comprises almost 20% of the body fluid, is stored in the loose connective tissue and its volume is actively regulated by components of this tissue. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Integrin αVβ3-Directed Contraction by Connective Tissue Cells : Role in Control of Interstitial Fluid Pressure and Modulation by Bacterial Proteins

    Författare :Åsa Lidén; Kristofer Rubin; Karl-Eric Magnusson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; interstitial fluid pressure; collagen gel contraction; integrin αVβ3; septic shock; fibronectin; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis aimed at studying mechanisms involved in control of tissue fluid homeostasis during inflammation.The interstitial fluid pressure (PIF) is of importance for control of tissue fluid balance. A lowering of PIF in vivo will result in a transport of fluid from the circulation into the tissue, leading to edema. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Integrated microsystems for continuous glucose monitoring, interstitial fluid sampling and digital microfluidics

    Författare :Federico Ribet; Niclas Roxhed; Göran Stemme; Boris Stoeber; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Microelectromechanical systems MEMS ; biosensors; biomedical devices; continuous glucose monitoring CGM ; glucose sensors; microneedles; interstitial fluid sampling; minimally-invasive technologies; electrochemical sensors; heterogeneous integration; wire bonding; magnetic assembly; electrowetting-on-dielectric EWOD ; digital microfluidics; ionic liquids; gas sensors; optical switches; laser shutters.; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Interdisciplinary research between medicine and microsystem engineering creates new possibilities to improve the quality of life of patients or to further enhance the performance of already existing devices. In particular, microsystems show great potential for the realization of biosensors and sampling devices to monitor bioanalytes with minimal patient discomfort. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Insulin resistance in skeletal muscle. With special reference to interstitial insulin and glycerol

    Författare :Mikaela Sjöstrand; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :insulin resistance; skeletal muscle; microdialysis; interstitial insulin; interstitial glycerol;

    Sammanfattning : Insulin resistance is a central feature of type 2 diabetes and obesity and is associated with cardiovascular disease. In insulin-resistant muscle, the insulin-mediated glucose uptake is decreased.The delivery of insulin to the interstitial fluid of human skeletal muscle has previously not been investigated. LÄS MER
