  1. 1. Platelet monoamine oxidase : From genetic regulation to behavior

    Author : Håkan Garpenstrand; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; monoamine oxidase; platelet; personality; CNS; serotonin; dopamine; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi; medicinsk farmakologi; Medical Pharmacology;

    Abstract : Genetic and environmental factors contribute to the development of personality and vulnerability forpsychiatric disorders. The activity of monoamine oxidase in platelets (trbc-MAO), which is mainlygenetically determined, correlates to personality traits such as sensation-seeking and impulsiveness, andlow trbc-MAO activity is more common in patients with type 2 alcoholism.

  2. 2. Platelet Adhesion to Proteins in Microplates : Applications in Experimental and Clinical Research

    Author : Andreas Eriksson; Per Whiss; Håkan Wallén; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; platelets; platelet adhesion; platelet assay; synergistic activation; thrombosis; anti-platelet treatment; Pharmacology; Farmakologi;

    Abstract : Platelets are crucial for prevention of blood loss after vessel injury. Platelet adhesion to disrupted vessel walls is mediated by receptors such as the GPIb-IX-V complex that binds von Willebrand factor and the collagen-binding integrin α2β1. READ MORE

  3. 3. Platelet activation and aggregation: Clinical and experimental studies

    Author : Sukhi Singh; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Platelet concentrate; Adrenaline; Noradrenaline; Ticagrelor; Platelet aggregation; Platelet activation;

    Abstract : Background: Dual antiplatelet therapy with acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) and the adenosine diphosphate (ADP)-receptor antagonist ticagrelor increases the risk of bleeding complications during cardiac surgery. The overall aim of this thesis was to identify and evaluate current and potential methods to reduce and prevent bleeding complications in patients with ongoing antiplatelet therapy. READ MORE

  5. 5. Platelet reactivity and comorbidities in acute coronary syndrome

    Author : Fredrik Björklund; Thomas Mooe; David Erlinge; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acute coronary syndrome; myocardial infarction; platelet reactivity; platelet aggregation; Inflammation; infection; diabetes mellitus; chronic kidney disease; acute kidney injury; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background In the event of an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), the risk of death and complications such as stroke and re-infarction is high during the first month. Diabetes, impaired kidney function, elevated markers of systemic inflammation and high level of platelet reactivity have all been associated with worsened prognosis in ACS patients. READ MORE
