  1. 1. Fractionated irradiation of salivary glands : loss and protection of function

    Författare :Ulrika Funegård; Thorild Ericson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Irradiation; salivary glands; saliva composition; antioxidants; radioprotection;

    Sammanfattning : Radiotherapy of malignancies in the head and neck often involves the major and minor salivary glands in the radiation field. Adverse effects, such as dry mouth symptoms, are common after such therapy. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Effects of fractionated irradiation on salivary glands

    Författare :Lars Franzén; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Salivary glands; irradiation; xerostomia; acinar cells; secretion; cell membrane; neuropeptides;

    Sammanfattning : The thesis is a study of the effects of radiation on the salivary glands in an experimental and a clinical study. Irradiation is a cornerstone in the management of head and neck cancer and is as other modalities of cancer treatment, afflicted with adverse reactions. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Salivary gland neoplasms : studies on the cytoskeleton, the secretory apparatus and the nuclear DNA content

    Författare :Hans Gustafsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Salivary gland neoplasms; intermediate filaments; immuno- histochemistry; ultrastructure; DNA; development; histogenesis; progno¬sis;

    Sammanfattning : The heterogeneity of salivary gland neoplasms have made classification and prognostication of these tumours sometimes difficult, and the in­troduction of techniques, such as enzyme and carbohydrate histochemis­try and electron microscopy have only to a certain extent increased our knowledge in these respects. In the present study immunohistochemical methods have been used to identify intermediate filament proteins (IFP) in normal fetal and adult parotid glands, as well as in salivary neo­plasms. LÄS MER

  4. 4. On Minor Salivary Gland Secretion

    Författare :Lars Eliasson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; age; dental plaque pH; dentures; gender; health; IgA; medication; minor salivary glands; oral dryness; saliva; salivary secretion rate;

    Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this series of studies has been to examine palatal, buccal and labial minor salivary gland secretions in relation to age and gender and other factors and conditions that could have effects on the saliva. Further aims were to analyze minor salivary gland secretions in relation to feelings of oral dryness and dental plaque pH. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Secretory and anti-inflammatory actions of some gastro-intestinal hormones in salivary glands

    Författare :Hülya Çevik Aras; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :salivary glands; protein secretion; synthesis; inflammation; β-defensins; myeloperoxidase; cholecystokinin; gastrin; melatonin; nitric oxide; nerve stimulation;

    Sammanfattning : Textbooks generally state that the secretory activity of salivary glands is solely regulated by nerves. This view is challenged in the present Thesis, using the parotid gland of the anaesthetized rat as experimental in vivo model. LÄS MER
