  1. 6. Colorectal Cancer Liver Metastases : Effects of Chemotherapy on Liver Parenchyma and Resections

    Författare :Jozef Urdzik; Agneta Norén; Per Hellman; James O Garden; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Current multimodal treatment of colorectal cancer liver metastasis often combines liver resections with preoperative chemotherapy with a 5-year survival of 40-50%. Preoperative chemotherapy includes conversion of initially non-resectable situation and control of micrometastatic disease. LÄS MER

  2. 7. Liver tissue characterization and influence of chemotherapy in liver surgery

    Författare :Jan Nilsson; Lund Kirurgi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; colorectal liver metastases; liver regeneration; incisional hernia; steatosis; hepatic microcirculation; diffuse reflectance spectroscopy; DRS; sidestream dark-field imaging; SDF; laser speckle contrast imaging; LSCI;

    Sammanfattning : Background & Aims: Primary liver cancer is the second most common cause of death from cancer worldwide. In the western world, the majority of liver malignancies consist of colorectal metastases. Liver resection is the primary treatment for cure in liver tumor disease. LÄS MER

  3. 8. Small-Scale Absorbed Dose Modelling in Selective Internal Radiation Therapy : Microsphere Distribution in Normal Liver Tissue

    Författare :Jonas Högberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; clusters; dosimetry; heterogeneity; liver; microspheres; radioembolisation; simulations; SIRT; surgery; yttrium-90;

    Sammanfattning : Radioembolisation (RE), with yttrium-90 (90Y) labelled microspheres, is an increasingly common treatment method for unresectable liver tumours. The tolerable mean absorbed dose for normal liver (NL) tissue is higher in RE than in External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT); absorbed dose heterogeneity is thought to be one important reason, together with a low absorbed dose rate, but the knowledge of microsphere distributions is limited.

  4. 9. Proteomic and Functional Analysis of In Vitro Systems for Studies of Drug Disposition in the Human Small Intestine and Liver

    Författare :Magnus Ölander; Per Artursson; Pär Matsson; Edward L. LeCluyse; Volker Lauschke; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; proteomics; drug disposition; ADMET; drug transport; drug metabolism; hepatotoxicity; small intestine; liver; caco-2; human hepatocytes; cryopreservation; apoptosis; liver zonation; non-parenchymal cells; Farmaceutisk vetenskap; Pharmaceutical Science;

    Sammanfattning : To reach the bloodstream, an orally administered drug must be absorbed through the small intestine and avoid extensive clearance in the liver. Estimating these parameters in vitro is therefore important in drug discovery and development. LÄS MER

  5. 10. On leukocyte recruitment in endotoxemic liver injury

    Författare :Daniel Klintman; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ortopedi; traumatology; Kirurgi; orthopaedics; Surgery; Sepsis; Liver; Inflammation; Adhesion; Endotoxemia; traumatologi;

    Sammanfattning : Leukocyte recruitment is a key feature of liver injury associated with endotoxemia and systemic inflammation. The aim of this thesis was to define the adhesive mechanisms underlying leukocyte endothelial cell interactions, and the therapeutic potential of interference with specific adhesion molecules in endotoxemic liver damage.
