  1. 6. Hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs) and biological responses, in hypoxia, inflammation and embryonic vascular development

    Författare :Maria Hägg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Embryonic stem cell; embryoid body; HIF-1a; hypoxia; VEGF; angiogenesis; vasculogenesis; peritoneal dialysis;

    Sammanfattning : ABSTRACT Low oxygen tension (hypoxia) is a major inducer of neovascularisation and evidence emerging has indicated that oxygen tension and hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs), a family of oxygen-regulated heterodimeric transcription factors, may play important roles in vascular and hematopoietic development. This thesis has focused on studying molecular and cellular mechanisms, by which cells and organisms sense changes in oxygen tension, and how this signal is transduced by HIFs into downstream signalling.

  2. 7. Acute inflammation in peritoneal dialysis. Experimental studies in rats. Characterization of regulatory mechanisms

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Författare :Farhan Bazargani; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : The predominant problems associated with peritoneal dialysis (PD) are ultrafiltration failure and peritonitis. PD maintains a state of intraperitoneal inflammation that affects the structure and function of the peritoneal membrane, potentially impairing ultrafiltration efficiency. LÄS MER

  3. 8. Invasion promoting factors in endometriotic and endometrial tissue

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences

    Författare :Christina Bruse; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endometriosis; endometrium; PF; tPA; uPA; uPAR; PAI-1; PAI-2; IL-1beta; IL-6; TNFalpha.;

    Sammanfattning : Endometriosis is a common gynaecologic disorder, affecting women of fertile age with pelvic pain and infertility, and is characterized by the presence of endometrial glands and stroma outside the uterine cavity. Retrograde shed endometrial fragments are presumed to adhere to pelvic structures and grow invasively, thereby creating endometriotic tissue. LÄS MER

  4. 9. Tissue reactions to biomaterials

    Detta är en avhandling från Inst. fysiologi och neurovetenskap, avd. neuroendokrin cellbiologi, EA-blocket, 5:e vån., Universitetssjukhuset, 221 85 Lund

    Författare :Agneta Rosengren; [1997]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cytochemistry; Histology; Macrophages; Cryosubstitution; Proteins; Immunohistochemistry; Titanium; Implants; PTFE; histochemistry; tissue culture; Histologi; cytokemi; histokemi; vävnadskultur;

    Sammanfattning : The biological response to different implanted biomaterials vary. The relative importance of factors in the material and host for this variation are at present incompletely known. LÄS MER

  5. 10. Structure and biological properties of scavenger receptor MARCO

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics

    Författare :Annika Brännström; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Macrophages are monocyte-derived cells that play an important role in the innate immune response against invading pathogens. These cells express several host defense receptors that can be divided into two classes; those dependent on opsonizing components for recognition of pathogens, and those that can recognize pathogens directly, pattern recognition receptors (PRRs).
