    Abstract : Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a disease with epidemic proportions due to increased incidences worldwide, persistence of undiagnosed cases, uncontrolled forms of the disease, association with cardiovascular complications, and lack of definitive treatment options. In particular, type 2 DM (T2DM) is placing an enormous financial burden on worldwide healthcare systems that will increase in the futureThere is a need to develop physiological assay platforms that provide functionally relevant models of diabetes in order to accelerate the discovery of new treatments.

    Abstract : The extracellular matrix is (ECM) is a network of large, structural proteins and polysaccharides, important for cellular behavior, tissue development and maintenance. Present thesis describes work exploring ECM as scaffolds for tissue engineering by manipulating cells cultured in vitro or by influencing ECM expression in vivo. READ MORE

  3. 3. About hyaluronan in the hypertrophic heart studies on coordinated regulation of extracellular matrix signalling

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Urban Hellman; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hyaluronan; hyaluronan synthases; gene expression; extracellular matrix; cardiac hypertrophy; rat wistar; male ; cardiomyocytes; growth factors; fibroblasts; microvesicles; exosomes; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Background. Myocardial hypertrophy is a risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Independent of underlying disease, the cardiac muscle strives in different ways to compensate for an increased workload. This remodelling of the heart includes changes in the extracellular matrix which will affect systolic and diastolic cardiac function. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cellular responses to amyloid-beta protofibrils Focus on astrocytes, extracellular vesicles and antibody treatment

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Det är känt sedan tidigare att komponenter från blodkärlets bindväv på olika sätt kan påverka sjukdomstillstånd som uppkommer i kärlväggen. En av dessa sjukdomar är ateroskleros (åderförkalkning), som genom sina följdsjukdomar (hjärtinfarkt, kärlkramp, stroke mm) utgör den vanligaste dödsorsaken i västvärlden. READ MORE
