1. Membrane transport and the human small intestine : Relation to mucosal protection, intestinal anaphylaxis and nitric oxide
Sammanfattning : The tightly adherent monolayer of epithelial cells that line the luminal side of the intestine provides a dynamic and highly regulated barrier to the passive and active transport of ions, water and macromolecules. Cathecol-O-methyl transferase inhibition prevents tissue degradation of catecholaminesincluding dopamine and intracellular carbonic anhydrase activity is an important regulator of ion and water transport in the small intestine.

4. Kronisk intestinal pseudo-obstruktion och enteral dysmotilitet : Aspekter på patienters vårdbehov, förutsättningar och livskvalitet
Sammanfattning : Title: Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction and enteric dysmotitlity aspects on patients health-care use, coping capacity and quality of life Aims of the thesis: To measure health care consumption before and after the introduction of a specialized day-care unit and to investigate if patients with chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP) differ from those with enteric dysmotility (ED) regarding clinical features, self-reported functional status, health-related quality of life (HRQL), and sense of coherence (SOC).
