  1. 1. Platelet adhesion and P-selectin surface expression

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Per A. Whiss; Nils Olav Solum; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; divalent cations; ELISA; nicotine; nitric oxide; platelet adhesion; P-selectin; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Upon injury in a blood vessel, platelets become activated and adbere to prevent blood loss. Activated platelets express adhesion molecules on their surface that also make leukocytes adhere to the injury. One such molecule, which also is expressed on endothelium, is the glycoprotein P-selectin. READ MORE

  2. 2. Platelet reactions in the non-self recognition of material surfaces

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Marita Broberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; platelet; biomaterial; adhesion; granule; P-selectin; plasma protein; blood; activation; release;

    Abstract : Every material introduced into the body in order to function in contact with a living tissue is defined as a biomaterial. Biomaterials are used throughout the world in an increasing rate to replace and augment organ functions. The insertion of an implant into the human body will initiate blood coagulation at the surface of the material. READ MORE

  3. 3. On Lactobacillus plantarum 299v, bacterial translocation and intestinal permeability

    Abstract : The gastrointestinal tract harbours a huge load of bacteria which exerts important biological functions to maintain health. In certain conditions the relation between commensal bacteria and pathogens may be set off balance, with an increase in number of pathogens and risk of bacterial translocation (BT). READ MORE
