Sammanfattning : Helicobacter pylori infects the stomach and areas of gastric metaplasia in the duodenum. Theinfection leads to peptic ulcers or gastric cancers in 10-20% of infected individuals, while themajority are more or less asymptomatic. However, active chronic gastritis develops in all infectedindividuals, often in association with atrophic gastritis. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), such as collagenases, are a family of enzymes capable of degrading most constituents of the extracellular matrix. MMPs are thought to be involved in the aetiopathogenesis of tendon rupture. Additionally, failure of healing has in some instances been associated with elevated levels of MMPs. LÄS MER
3. Effects of sex steroids and tamoxifen on matrix metalloproteinase activity and generation of endostatin in the breastDetta är en avhandling från Institutionen för biomedicin och kirurgi
Sammanfattning : Sex steroids are inevitable in women. However, long-term exposure to sex steroids increases the risk of breast cancer. A complete understanding of sex steroid control of the breast and how it relates to breast cancer risk is still lacking. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : Growth of pathological new vessels (angiogenesis) in the eye is a leading cause of severe vision-loss. Ocular angiogenesis is seen in the anterior part of the eye as in corneal neovascularization, or in the posterior part as in diabetic retinopathy, retinopathy of prematurity or age-related macular degeneration.

5. Migration on extracellular matrix surface and infiltration into matrix - two distinguishable activities of human T cellsDetta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences
Sammanfattning : Migration of T-lymphocytes on a surface coated with extracellular matrix (ECM) components (two-dimensional (2-D) migration) and migration (infiltration) into a matrix (Three-dimesional (3-D) migration) are complex events and the underlying mechanisms are not yet fully understood. Here 2-D and 3-D migration were studied by use of seven leukemic T-cell lines representing discrete differentiation stages, a non-leukemic T-cell clone, and normal peripheral blood T cells. LÄS MER
