  1. 1. Acid-base values in umbilical cord blood at birth

    Author : Nana Wiberg; Urogynekologi och reproduktionsfarmakologi; []
    Keywords : Apgar score; Acidosis; Base deficit; Blood gases; Gestational age; Hidden acidosis; lactate; Umbilical cord blood;

    Abstract : Umbilical cord blood acid-base status at birth gives an objective evaluation of the fetal exposure and response to hypoxia during labor. The objective of this thesis was to elucidate methodological issues associated with interpretation of cord blood gases. READ MORE

  2. 2. Endogenous Nitric Oxide Production and Pulmonary Blood Flow : during different experimental lung conditions

    Author : Manja Nilsson; Filip Fredén; Kristina Hambraeus-Jonzon; Göran Hedenstierna; Eddie Weitzberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nitric oxide; pulmonary blood flow; endotoxin; nitric oxide inhalation; endothelin; hypercapnia; acidosis; lavage-induced lung injury; Anaesthetics and intensive care; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care;

    Abstract : Nitric oxide (NO) is an important regulator of pulmonary blood flow and attenuates hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV). Nitric oxide is synthesized enzymatically in a number of tissues, including the lungs, and can also be generated from reduction of nitrite during hypoxia and acidosis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Training-induced increase in mitochondrial biogenesis

    Author : Emma Hawke; Department of Neurological and Movement Sciences University of Verona; []
    Keywords : alkalosis; acidosis; muscle adaptation; PGC1alpha; cell signalling;

    Abstract : Endurance training leads to an improved ability of muscle to utilize oxygen. This is related to an increased density and function of mitochondria. READ MORE

  4. 4. Adaptive mechanisms in the hypoxic tumor microenvironment. Functional role of proteoglycans and identification of potential treatment targets

    Author : Julien Menard; Tumörmikromiljö; []
    Keywords : Hypoxia; Acidosis; Proteoglycans; Endocytosis; Glioblastoma; Lipid; Caveolin-1; Antibody-drug conjugate;

    Abstract : Cancer cells reside in a complex microenvironment comprising stromal cells and immune cells embedded in an extracellular matrix (ECM). Early on in tumor progression, cells reach a critical volume beyond which blood supply is impaired, leading to a decrease in oxygen levels (hypoxia) and nutrient supply. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cellular and molecular mechanisms of ischemic brain damage in hyperglycemic rats

    Author : Hiroyuki Uchino; Lund Wallenberg Neurocentrum; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Reperfusion injury; Mitochondria; Permeability transition; Cyclosporin A; Neurotrophins; Seizures; Brain damage; Acidosis; Hypercapnia; Ischemia; Hyperglycemia; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : The present study is centered on mechanisms of ischemic brain damage in hyperglycemic animals, and in those in which exaggerated intraischemic acidosis was induced by superimposed hypercapnia in normoglycemic animals. The initial experiments were focussed on the pathophysiology of postischemic seizures. READ MORE
