Hypoxia-ischemia induces an inflammatory response in the immature central nervous system that may be important for development of brain injury. Recent data implicate that chemoattractant cytokines, chemokines, are involved in the recruitment of immune cells. The aim was to study alpha- and beta-chemokines in relation to the temporal activation of(More)
In a model of cerebral hypoxia-ischemia in the immature rat, widespread brain injury is produced in the ipsilateral hemisphere, whereas the contralateral hemisphere is left undamaged. Previously, we found that calpains were equally translocated to cellular membranes (a prerequisite for protease activation) in the ipsilateral and contralateral hemispheres.(More)
A total of 134 people, aged between 25 and 60, were randomly selected from the Traffic Injury Register in Göteborg and interviewed 2 years after the accident. They were asked by telephone about their lives before and after the accident. There was a high rate of complications, even after some minor injuries. Half of the respondents still reported travel(More)
The aim of the study was to assess long term outcome of injuries from traffic accidents with focus on psychosocial aspects. Eighty-four persons injured in traffic accidents and with moderate to severe injuries (ISS > or = 9) were interviewed approximately two years after the accident. We examined psychosocial consequences within eight different domains;(More)
