  1. 1. Molecular dissection of the Goodpasture epitope

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Nephrology, Lund University

    Författare :Thomas Hellmark; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1999]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Urologi; autoimmune; anti-GBM nephritis; glomerulonephritis; nephrology; Urology; nefrologi;

    Sammanfattning : Goodpasture disease is a prototype autoimmune disease that is characterized by a rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, with or without lung haemorrhage, associated with autoantibodies against the glomerular basement membrane. The major antigen has previously been shown to be the non-collagenous domain of the a3 chain of type IV collagen, one of the six known a chains of type IV collagen. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Long-term outcome of vesicoureteral reflux and reflux nephropathy in adults - clinical and radiological aspects

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Nephrology, Lund University

    Författare :Jan Köhler; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nefrologi; nephrology; Urology; Adults; antireflux surgery; pregnancy; reflux nephropathy; Urologi; urinary tract infection; vesicoureteral reflux; urography;

    Sammanfattning : The aim was to study the long-term consequencies of vesicoureteral reflux and reflux nephropathy (RN) in adults, with regard to radiological progression, urinary tract infections, renal functional impairment, hypertension, and to determine if the extent of renal damage can predict the outcome. Attempts to differentiate between acquired and developmental renal damage were also made. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Endogenous proteins as markers of glomerular function and dysfunction

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Nephrology, Lund University

    Författare :Jan Tencer; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1997]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; glomerular filter; amyloidosis; glomerulonephritis; glomerular disease; proteins; proteinuria; Urology; nephrology; Urologi; nefrologi;

    Sammanfattning : Plasma and urine concentrations of endogenous proteins are frequently used in the diagnosis of kidney diseases and in studies of glomerular filter function. The main issues addressed in these studies were: storage of urine samples for subsequent protein analysis, use of protein concentrations in urine and in plasma in health and as markers of glomerular diseases, and the application of renal plasma-to-urine clearance of endogenous proteins in estimating the size-selectivity properties of the glomerular capillary wall.

  4. 4. Autoimmunity in glomerulonephritis; serological diagnosis and clinical outcome with special reference to Wegener´s granulomatosis and microscopic polyangiitis

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Nephrology, Lund University

    Författare :Kerstin Westman; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1997]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Wegener´s granulomatosis; vasculitis; thyroid peroxidase antibodies; proteinase 3; myeloperoxidase; antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies; ANCA; thyroiditis; autoantibodies; glomerulonephritis; microscopic polyangiitis; Urology; nephrology; Urologi; nefrologi;

    Sammanfattning : Autoantibodies of different specificites have been described in association with glomerulonephritis and therefore the aim of this thesis was to improve our knowledge of the different manifestations of autoimmune phenomena which are involved in the glomerulonephritides. Special reference is made to Wegener´s granulomatosis (WG) and microscopic polyangiitis (MP) which are frequently associated with the prevalence of anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA).

  5. 5. Diagnostic and prognostic aspects of anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies in systemic vasculitis

    Detta är en avhandling från Daina Selga Department of Nephrology, Clinical Sciences, Lund Faculty of Medicine Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Daina Selga; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi; serology; epitope; Wegener s granulomatosis; microscopic polyangiitis; polyarteritis nodosa; capture ELISA; Immunology; anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody; proteinase 3; vasculitis; nephrology; Urologi; nefrologi; Urology;

    Sammanfattning : Primary systemic vasculitis is associated with a high mortality if left untreated and it is essential to make the diagnosis before permanent organ damage has occurred. In this thesis the diagnostic and prognostic significance of anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) in systemic vasculitis is investigated. LÄS MER
