    Sammanfattning : Accurate measurements of 17beta-oestradiol and testosterone are important in clinical settings of pubertal disorders and hormone replacement therapy among children. Most assays for measurement of these steroids are optimised for fertility investigations in adults and are not sensitive enough for quantification in children. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Calcium (Ca2+) is a highly versatile ion used for intra- and inter-cellular signalling in eukaryotic cells, and numerous cellular events are regulated by alteration of the intracellular Ca2+ concentration. We hypothesized that bacterial virulence factors may alter the Ca 2+ homeostasis in epithelial cells such that the innate immune response is affected. LÄS MER
