    Abstract : Heparan sulfate (HS), an unbranched sulfated carbohydrate chain, and the HS-degrading enzyme heparanase play important roles in physiological and pathological processes during all stages of life, from early embryogenesis to ageing. Accumulated information shows that HS and heparanase are involved in inflammatory processes and associated diseases, e. READ MORE

    Abstract : Nitric oxide (NO) is expressed in inflammatory tissues. However, NO effects are controversial in inflammation; NO is described as acting in a dose dependent manner and possess both pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory properties. READ MORE

  4. 4. Understanding inflammatory mechanisms in rheumatic diseases

    Author : Ia Khmaladze; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Psoriasis (Ps) and Psoriasis arthritis (PsA) are chronic inflammatory autoimmune disorders, where primary targets are peripheral joints, skin and skin/joints respectively. Both innate and adaptive immunity play a role in disease initiation and progression. READ MORE
