  1. 1. The Hepatobiliary Transport of Rosuvastatin In Vivo

    Author : Ebba Bergman; Hans Lennernäs; Ulf Bondesson; Jack Cook; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rosuvastatin; Biliary excretion; Transport inhibition; Pharmacokinetics; Drug-drug interactions; Hepatobiliary transport; Organic anion transporting polypeptide; OATP; Statins; Gemfibrozil; Cyclosporine; Imatinib; Rifampicin; Canalicular transport; Sinusoidal transport; Hepatic uptake; Hepatic extraction; Biopharmacy; Biofarmaci; Biopharmaceutics; biofarmaci;

    Abstract : In vivo studies of hepatobiliary disposition are challenging. The hepatobiliary system is complex, as its physiological localization, complex cellular structure with numerous transporters and enzymes, and the interindividual variability in protein expression and biliary flow will all affect the in vivo disposition of a drug under investigation.

  2. 2. Effects of Ca2+, microRNAs, and rosuvastatin on insulin-secreting beta cell function

    Author : Vishal Ashok Salunkhe; Diabetes - öcellsexocytos; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 2 diabetes; exocytosis; Ca2 ; miR-375; miR-335; rosuvastatin; voltage-gated Na channels; STXBP1; SNAP25; SYT11; glucose homeostasis; beta cell function;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a condition of high blood glucose levels due to insulin resistance and defective insulin secretion. Impaired insulin secretion plays a major role in the pathophysiology of T2D, it is mainly attributed to beta cell function i.e. failure to secrete insulin or reduced beta cell mass. READ MORE

  3. 3. Implications of cholesterol and cholesterol-lowering therapy in Alzheimer s disease

    Author : Daniel Famer; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Alzheimer s disease; dietary cholesterol; rosuvastatin; apolipoprotein E; alpha-secretase; beta-secretase; alpha- beta-secretase ratio; soluble APPalpha; gliosis; microglial load; interleukin-6; caspase-3; body weight gain; lifestyle-preventive strategy; 24 S -hydroxycholesterol; 27-hydroxycholesterol;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND: Alzheimer s disease (AD) is a severe neurodegenerative disease that mainly afflicts elderly persons, with a characteristic progressive decline of cognitive functions and dementia. It is believed that the majority of all AD patients are affected by the sporadic form, thus caused by the combined effects of several risk factors, such as elevated cholesterol levels in midlife and deficiencies in the lipoprotein transporters apolipoprotein E (ApoE).

  4. 4. Cardioprotective mechanisms by inhibition of the HMG-CoA reductase pathway and stimulation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors in myocardial ischaemia-reperfusion

    Author : Aliaksandr Bulhak; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Endothelial function; endothelin-1; geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate; HMG-CoA reductase; infarct size; ischaemiareperfusion injury; myeloperoxidase; myocardium; nitric oxide; nitric oxide synthase; peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-alpha; -gamma; PPAR-alpha; -gamma-ligands; RhoA; statins.;

    Abstract : Acute myocardial ischaemia causes metabolic changes and results in a rapid decrease in the energy available to the cell. This leads to cell injury that, depending on the length of the ischaemic time, is reversible or irreversible. READ MORE

  5. 5. Non-invasive ultrasound-based cardiovascular imaging in mouse models of atherosclerosis

    Author : Julia Grönros; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : atherosclerosis; ultrasound-based imaging; cardiovascular disease; coronary artery; mouse; color Doppler echocardiography; ultrasound biomicroscopy; statin;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is a chronic multi-factorial vascular disease. It generally requires large clinical settings and over many years to study the disease progression in man. Genetically modified mouse models of atherosclerosis have dramatically increased research feasibility within this area. READ MORE
