Iron therapy in inflammatory bowel disease : effects on oxidative stress and disease activity
(The University of Bergen, 2005-12-09)
Low Densities of Serotonin and Peptide YY Cells in the Colon of Patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Background The gut hormones are important in regulating gastrointestinal motility. Disturbances in gastrointestinal motility have been reported in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Reduced endocrine cell ...
Bi-specific TCR-anti CD3 redirected T-cell targeting of NY-ESO-1- and LAGE-1-positive tumors
(Springer Verlag, 2012-12)
NY-ESO-1 and LAGE-1 are cancer testis antigens with an ideal profile for tumor immunotherapy, combining up-regulation in many cancer types with highly restricted expression in normal tissues and sharing a common ...
Chromogranin A Cell Density as a Diagnostic Marker for Lymphocytic Colitis
(Springer US, 2012-06-15)
<p>Background: Lymphocytic colitis (LC) can be mistakenly diagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). In a previous study on IBS, some patients showed extremely high colonic chromogranin A cell density. Further examination ...
A salmon peptide diet alleviates experimental colitis as compared with fish oil
(Cambridge University Press, 2013-01-10)
Fish oil (FO) has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties in animal models of inflammatory bowel disease, but how fish peptides (FP) influence intestinal inflammation has been less studied. Male Wistar rats, divided ...
Prognostic indicators of total-, cardiac- and sudden cardiac death in chest pain patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome (ACS)
(The University of Bergen, 2013-05-30)
Antiretroviral therapy at a district hospital in Ethiopia prevents death and tuberculosis in a cohort of HIV patients
(BioMed Central, 2006-04-07)
<p>Background: Although highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) reduces mortality in the developed world, it remains undocumented in resource-poor settings. We assessed the effect of HAART on patient mortality and ...
Can spirometric norms be set using pre- or post- bronchodilator test results in older people?
(BioMed Central, 2012-11-16)
Background: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is defined by post-bronchodilator spirometry. Data on “normal values” come predominantly from pre-bronchodilator spirometry. The effects of this on diagnosis are ...
Increased gastric chromogranin A cell density following changes to diets of patients with irritable bowel syndrome
The gut endocrine cells control and regulate several functions of the gastrointestinal tract. They have been reported to be abnormal in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), with alterations occurring in several functions regulated ...
