  1. 1. Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 and CC-chemokine receptor-2 in two different conditions related to atherosclerosis

    Author : Henrik Blomqvist; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : atherosclerosis; hypercholesterolaemia; coronary artery disease; inflammation; MCP-1; CCR2; CRP; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is the leading cause of death in the industrialized parts of the world. The pathological process is characterised by increased lipid influx to the arterial wall due to elevated circulating levels of low density lipoprotein (LDL). LDL is oxidatively modified by reactive oxygen species forming oxLDL. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Ovulatory Process. Studies in the human and the rabbit

    Author : Pernilla Dahm-Kähler; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : ovulation; ovary; rabbit; human; follicle; MCP-1; intrafollicular pressure;

    Abstract : Background and general summary: Ovulation is the cascade of events ending with follicular rupture and oocyte extrusion. This ovulatory process is triggered by the LH surge, which induces biochemical and biophysical alterations within the preovulatory follicle. READ MORE

  3. 3. Protease Activation and Inflammation in Acute Pancreatitis

    Author : Sara Regnér; Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; prediction of severity; CAPAP; proCAP; aCAP; Acute pancreatitis; MCP-1; Carboxypeptidase B; fibrinolysis;

    Abstract : Approximately 10—20 % of patients with acute pancreatitis (AP) develop a severe disease with high mortality and morbidity. Activation of pancreatic proteases, the inflammatory response and impaired pancreatic circulation are pathophysiological events that are important in order for the disease to develop. READ MORE

  4. 4. Expression and function of vascular estrogen receptors alpha and beta

    Author : Min Liang; Kärlfysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetologi; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; ubiquitin-proteasome pathway; MIP-2; MCP-1; iNOS; estrogen receptor knockout; estrogen receptor; aorta; estrogen;

    Abstract : Estrogen receptors (ER) are expressed not only in classical target organs for estrogen like breast and uterus, but also in male reproductive system as well as in non-reproductive organs such as brain, liver and bone. The functions of ER are quite well known in reproductive organs but less information is available regarding their function in vascular tissue. READ MORE

  5. 5. In vitro models of xenograft rejection : Studies on leukocyte-endothelial cell interactions

    Author : Cecilia Ehrnfelt; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Xenotransplantation; endothelium; neutrophils; monocytes; NK cells; a-Gal; antibodies; porcine islets; MCP-1;

    Abstract : Xenotransplantation is the transplantation of cells, tissues or organs between different species and is a potential alternative to allotransplantation because of the lack of human donors. The pig is believed to be a suitable donor-species to man for medical, technical, financial and ethical reasons. READ MORE
