  1. 1. Engineering the shape of bacterial cellulose and its use as blood vessel replacement

    Author : Henrik Bäckdahl; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : tissue engineering.; smooth muscle cells; bacterial cellulose; scaffold design; tubular fermentation; biocompatibility evaluation; Blood vessel; vascular graft;

    Abstract : Tissue loss and organ failure are major health problems that impose great costs on society. Cardiovascular diseases are responsible for 36% of mortalities and the disease burden among adults over the age of 60. The single largest cardiovascular disease is atherosclerosis in the coronary artery. READ MORE

  2. 2. Vessel wall integrity : influence of genetics and flow

    Author : Hanna Björck; Toste Länne; Per Eriksson; Sverker Jern; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of death worldwide. Underlying causes, such as atherosclerosis and hypertension, are associated with remodeling of the vessel wall ultimately leading to loss of structural integrity. There are a number of factors that can influence vascular remodeling and hence structural integrity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Roles of the Shb and Cbl Proteins in Signal Transduction and Blood Vessel Formation

    Author : Lingge Lu; Michael Welsh; Lars Holgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; Shb; Cbl; FGF-2; NGF; PDGF; VEGF; VEGFR-2; differentiation; blood vessel formation; PC12 cells; endothelial cells; embryoid bodies; Rap1; CrkII; Cellbiologi; Cell biology; Cellbiologi; medicinsk cellbiologi; Medical Cell Biology;

    Abstract : Formation of blood vessels occurs through two processes: vasculogenesis and angiogenesis, which are regulated by various growth factors such as vascular endothelial growth factor, fibroblast growth factor and platelet-derived growth factor. The present study was carried out in order to investigate the roles of the Shb and Cbl proteins in growth factor-mediated signal transduction and blood vessel formation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Toward a tissue engineered blood vessel. Cell cultivation, hemodynamic influences and matrix production

    Author : Sepideh Heydarkhan-Hagvall; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : ; tissue engineered blood vessel; co-culture vascular cells; angiogenic factors; hemodynamic; extracellular matrix; stem cells;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular diseases are the leading causes of mortality in the western world. Thereplacement or repair of diseased blood vessels with human autografts (vein or arteries) orsynthetic vascular grafts (ePTFE or Dacron) has become a routine treatment. Autologous graftsare not always available in all patients. READ MORE
