(BioMed Central, 2006-05-25)
Background: Giardia is not endemic in Norway, and more than 90% of reported cases acquire the infection abroad. In late October 2004, an increase in laboratory confirmed cases of giardiasis was reported in the city of ...
The immunological dilemma: Cellular innate and adaptive immune response versus human acute myeloid leukemia
(Bentham Science Publishers Ltd., 2007)
It is generally accepted that acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) patients are immunocompromized. On the other hand, antileukemic immune reactivity is important for the improved survival of AML patients treated with ...
Afferent arteriolopathy and glomerular collapse but not segmental sclerosis induce tubular atrophy in old spontaneously hypertensive rats
In chronic renal disease, the temporal and spatial relationship between vascular, glomerular and tubular changes is still unclear. Hypertension, an important cause of chronic renal failure, leads to afferent ...
Prevention of Hypertension and Organ Damage in 2-Kidney, 1-Clip Rats by Tetradecylthioacetic Acid

Dietary lipids are reported to affect the blood pressure in both humans and experimental animal models with hypertension. In the present study, 2-kidney, 1-clip (2K1C) hypertensive rats were treated with the modified fatty ...
Immunophenotyping in post-giardiasis functional gastrointestinal disease and chronic fatigue syndrome
(BioMed Central, 2012-10-14)
Background: A Giardia outbreak was associated with development of post-infectious functional gastrointestinal disorders (PI-FGID) and chronic fatigue syndrome (PI-CFS). Markers of immune dysfunction have given conflicting ...
