Sammanfattning : Growth hormone (GH) exerts major effects on body growth and metabolism. Insulin-like growth factor (IGF) is expressed in response to GH and is known to mediate many of the effects of GH. The largest expression of IGF is found in the liver although it is expressed in virtually every tissue of the body. LÄS MER
23. Liver Resection for Colorectal Cancer Metastases. Prognostic Factors and Interventions Affecting Outcome
Sammanfattning : Background: With a yearly incidence of 56 per 100,000 inhabitants, colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common malignancies in the Western world, representing the third leading cause of cancer-related mortality. Within three years after the diagnosis of CRC, 29% of patients will have developed liver metastases. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the liver and pancreas is frequently performed to improve the sensitivity and specificity of lesion detection in these organs. The concept of using tissue-specific contrast media is to selectively enhance the normal parenchyma, but not lesions, so that the contrast between tumorous and normal tissue is increased, and lesion detectability improved.

Sammanfattning : Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) are ligand-activated transcription factors, regulating genes involved in carbohydrate, lipid and lipoprotein metabolism. Synthetic PPARalpha agonists used in clinic are the fibrates, and their hypotriglyceridemic effect is believed to be the result of decreased VLDL triglyceride secretion and increased turnover of triglyceride-rich lipoprotein particles in the circulation.
