  1. 1. Antimicrobial peptides in the treatment of infectious and inflammatory conditions : Preclinical studies of mechanism of action, efficacy, and safety

    Författare :Camilla Björn; RISE; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; antimicrobial peptides; AMPs; innate immunity; infection; inflammation; mechanism of action; efficacy; safety; antimicrobial resistance; antibiotic resistance; Antimicrobial peptides;

    Sammanfattning : The rapid emergence of antibiotic-resistant microbes worldwide and the urgent need of new antimicrobial agents have stimulated interest in antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) as new therapeutics for treatment of infectious diseases. AMPs are present in all living species and constitute an important part of the innate immune system in multicellular organisms, including humans. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Chronic pain affects 20 % of the global population, causes suffering, is difficult to treat, and constitutes a large economic burden for society. So far, the characterization of molecular mechanisms of chronic pain-like behaviors in animal models has not translated into effective treatments. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Studies of Cytotoxic Compounds of Natural Origin and their Mechanisms of Action

    Författare :Jenny Felth; Lars Bohlin; Joachim Gullbo; Ulf Göransson; Thomas Efferth; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Cancer incidence is increasing and novel anticancer drugs with new mechanisms of action are essential for future chemotherapeutic treatment. Natural products have historically played an important role in the development of anti-cancer drugs and have potential to do so also in the future. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mechanism of Action of the Antiarrhythmic Agent AZD7009

    Författare :Frida Persson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :atrial fibrillation; antiarrhythmic drug; IKr; IKur; Ito; IKs; IKACh; INa; ICaL; cardiac action potential; early afterdepolarisation;

    Sammanfattning : Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common tachyarrhythmia in the adult population and is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. AF can be terminated and sinus rhythm restored by prolonging the action potential duration (APD) and the refractory period. LÄS MER

  5. 5. On diverse biophysical aspects of genetics : from the action of regulators to the characterization of transcripts

    Författare :Aymeric Fouquier D´Hérouel; Erik Aurell; Felix Ritort; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; transcription regulation; regulatory motifs; binding affinity; genetic interactions; secondary structure; sequence repeats; transcript characterization; Biological physics; Biologisk fysik;

    Sammanfattning : Genetics is among the most rewarding fields of biology for the theoretically inclined, offering both room and need for modeling approaches in the light of an abundance of experimental data of different kinds. Many aspects of the field are today understood in terms of physical and chemical models, joined by information theoretical descriptions. LÄS MER
