  • Novel skeletal stem and progenitor cells and their regulation 

    Zhou, Baoyi (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2022-01-20)
    The development of bone and cartilage, which provide the framework of the skeletal system, is complex. In this context stem and progenitor cells play a crucial role by producing differentiated cells. Hormones are important ...
  • Aspects of risk factors, pathophysiology and outcomes in trauma 

    Eriksson, Jesper (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2022-01-14)
    Trauma is a global health concern. Many trauma patients succumb on the scene or in the immediate phase after trauma. Patients surviving the initial phase may die at a later stage or suffer debilitating consequences in ...
  • Modelling of steatosis and insulin resistance development in human hepatic 3d spheroids : mechanisms and genetic aspects

  • The bioenergetic roles of PGC-1α1, kynurenines, and GPR35 in exercise and obesity 

    Dadvar, Shamim (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2021-11-09)
    Obesity is a major cause of medical comorbidity with detrimental effects on health span. Fundamentally, obesity is a condition of disrupted energy metabolism, where energy intake chronically exceeds expenditure. Over ...
  • Assessing the importance of rare genetic variants for drug response 

    Zhou, Yitian (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2021-10-27)
    Inter-individual variability in drug response is commonly observed in pharmacological treatment, resulting in 40-70% of patients suffering from low drug efficacy or adverse drug reactions. These negative ...
  • Long-term outcomes after trauma and intensive care 

    Oelreich, Erik von (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2021-10-25)
    The goals of trauma and critical care are twofold: to prevent short- and long-term mortality and to return the patient to an independent life. With the development of modern trauma care including technical advancements ...
  • WNT/Frizzled signaling : illuminating the road towards pathway selectivity 

    Bowin, Carl-Fredrik (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2021-10-21)
    Cells sense and respond to their environment via receptors embedded in the plasma membrane. Receptors allow flow of information from outside to the inside of the cell and are generally regulated by extracellular molecules ...
  • Mechanisms of inter-organ crosstalk mediated by tryptophan metabolism 

    Silva, Paula Sofia Valente da (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2021-09-28)
    Physical exercise and nutrition balance the “energy in-energy out” equilibrium that keeps the system at a dynamic homeostasis, energetically speaking. However, this is a simplistic vision of a dynamic system that is in ...
  • Pain in rheumatoid arthritis : bone and neuroinflammation-associated mechanisms 

    Rudjito, Resti (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2021-05-26)
    Pain is often the primary reason patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) seek medical care. Despite effective disease control with currently available disease modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), there are still hurdles ...
  • Sex and gender aspects on intensive care : access, intensity and outcome 

    Zettersten, Erik (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2021-05-06)
    There is an underlying assumption in society that critically ill patients are admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU) based on their illness severity coupled with their comorbidities, and that other variables are ...
  • The kynurenine pathway in body and brain : relation with physical exercise and mental health 

    Trepci, Ada (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2021-04-29)
    The kynurenine pathway of tryptophan degradation is the focus in a variety of research fields and several of the metabolites produced along the pathway are suggested as future biomarkers. Growing interest in a better ...
  • Prediction of psychological and physical morbidity after critical illness and intensive care unit stay 

    Milton, Anna (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2021-01-11)
    A large proportion of survivors of critical illness and intensive care unit stay suffer from post- intensive care syndrome (PICS), consisting of psychological, physical and cognitive problems. These problems can persist ...
  • Inflammatory activation of the kynurenine pathway : studies with lipopolysaccharides 

    Faka Schulte, Anthi (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2020-11-27)
    Neuroinflammation is increasingly recognised as playing an important role in several major psychiatric disorders. The mechanisms by which neuroinflammation influences neurotransmitter systems have for long been unknown. ...
  • From brain to muscle and back : novel approaches to harness the benefits of exercise 

    Kelahmetoglu, Yildiz (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2020-11-27)
    As the world population is growing older and more sedentary every day, the need for new approaches to combat chronic diseases grows steadily. Physical exercise improves health and reduces the risk of developing a plethora ...
  • Perioperative risk factors and outcomes 

    Hallqvist, Linn (Inst för fysiologi och farmakologi / Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2020-11-24)
