  1. 1. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Role of Alpha-1-antitrypsin

    University dissertation from Ruta Aldonyte, Wallenberg Lab, Plan 2, UMAS, 20502 Malmo

    Author : Ruta Aldonyte; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Andningsorganen; Respiratory system; monocytes; inflammation; AAT polymerization; AAT; COPD;

    Abstract : The only proven genetic risk factor for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an inherited Z (Glu342¡úLys) deficiency of alpha-1-antitrypsin (AAT), a major inhibitor of neutrophil elastase. In vivo, AAT is found in both native (inhibitory) and modified (non-inhibitory) forms. READ MORE

  2. 2. Proteome Profiling of Strawberry and Characterization of a Bet v 1-Homologous Allergen

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Rikard Alm; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; metabolism; Biochemistry; Metabolism; Biokemi; Naturvetenskap; Plant biochemistry; Växtbiokemi; Respiratory system; Andningsorganen; Natural science; biomatematik; Bioinformatics; medical informatics; biomathematics biometrics; Bioinformatik; medicinsk informatik; speclust; proteios; biological variation; phenotypic plasticity; data management; DIGE; sequencing; isoform; allergen; Proteomics; strawberry;

    Abstract : Strawberry (Fragaria ananassa) is an economically important crop, and recognised as an important source of antioxidants and bioactive compounds with health promoting effects. Yet increased incidence of allergy puts a limit to the choice of food for an increasing percentage of the population. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cardiovascular and respiratory effects of apnea in humans

    University dissertation from Animal Physiology

    Author : Johan Andersson; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lung volume; breath-hold diving; Apnea; breath-holding; face immersion; cold stimulation; diving response; diving reflex; circulation; bradycardia; vasoconstriction; arterial blood pressure; cardiac output; spleen; respiration; splenic contraction; alveol; Physiology; Fysiologi; Respiratory system; Andningsorganen; Animal physiology; Djurfysiologi;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with cardiovascular and respiratory effects of apneas in humans. During apnea (breath-holding), a number of interacting cardiovascular reflexes are initiated, and together these reflexes are called the “diving response”. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of Inflammatory Mediators on Pulmonary Airways

    University dissertation from Medicinska fakulteten, Lunds universitet

    Author : Ofir Bachar; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; electric ?eld stimulation; bradykinin; airway; tumor necrosis factor a; Respiratory system; nitric oxide; Andningsorganen; Toll-like receptor; prostaglandin E2; neurotrophin; allergy;

    Abstract : Chronic inflammation is together with excessive contraction of the airways key features of asthma. The aims of the thesis were to analyze the effect of inflammatory mediators on airway smooth muscle, using an in vitro model of cultured murine airways. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lung mechanics in the aging lung and in acute lung injury. Studies based on sinusoidal flow modulation

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Physiology, Lund University

    Author : Ulrika Bitzén; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Diagnostics; Diagnostik; acute lung injury; lung mechanics; acute respiratory distress syndrome; intensivvård; Anestesiologi; intensive care; Anaesthesiology; Andningsorganen; Respiratory system; Fysiologi; Physiology; flow regulation; method; lung resistance; compliance; aging;

    Abstract : Knowledge about lung mechanics is of interest in intensive care to adjust mechanical ventilation and in the lung laboratory for diagnostics and evaluation of patients with various kinds of respiratory diseases. In mechanical ventilation a single inspiratory elastic pressure-volume (Pel/V) curve is difficult to interpret due to continuing re-expansion of collapsed lung units over a large pressure interval.
