  • Optic nerve hypoplasia in children - prevalence, associated disorders and genetic causes 

    Dahl, Sara (Inst för kvinnors och barns hälsa / Dept of Women's and Children's Health, 2018-08-10)
    Optic nerve hypoplasia (ONH) is a congenital ocular malformation with a thin optic nerve in one or both eyes. ONH has been associated with neurodevelopmental disorders and pituitary dysfunction, but the prevalence of ...
  • Diversity and focus of CMV specific T-cell responses in patients post-HSCT and with solid tumor 

    Poiret, Thomas (Inst för laboratoriemedicin / Dept of Laboratory Medicine, 2018-08-09)
    Human Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a beta-herpesvirus that commonly infects humans. Most symptoms in healthy individuals are very mild. The virus is never eliminated and remains in the individual life-long. Thus, CMV and the ...
  • High-intensity interval training in combination with aerobic or resistance training for patients with breast cancer : a HIIT to counteract detrimental effects of chemotherapy 

    Mijwel, Sara (2018-08-09)
    With the increasing number of individuals that enter cancer survivorship there is a growing need for interventions that can alleviate treatment-related adverse effects such as fatigue, and that can improve and restore ...
  • Structure and function relationships in the PGC-1 family of transcriptional coactivators 

    Izadi, Manizheh (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2018-08-08)
    PGC-1 coactivators are central regulators of several cellular processes, most notably the coupling between energy demands and supply. PGCs activate distinct biological processes in a tissue-specific manner. These include ...
