  1. 1. Structural pathology and functional analysis of vitamin K-dependent protein S

    Author : Tusar K Giri; Malmö Klinisk kemi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; C4b-binding protein; Protein S; blood coagulation; thrombosis; natural mutations; in vitro characterization.; Immunology; transplantation; serologi; Immunologi; serology;

    Abstract : Protein S deficiency is an autosomal dominant trait affecting around 10% of families thrombophilic families. The high affinity interaction of approximately 60% of protein S with C4b -binding protein (C4BP) has raised a complicated situation for the diagnosis of deficiency states. READ MORE

  2. 2. Blood flow and cell transport in arteries and medical assist devices

    Author : Niclas Berg; Lisa Prahl Wittberg; Laszlo Fuchs; Mihai Mihaescu; Alessandro Veneziani; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hemodynamics; CFD; Artherosclerosis; Thrombosis; Platelet activation; Hemorheology; Platelet margination; Teknik och hälsa; Technology and Health;

    Abstract : The cardiovascular system is responsible for transport of nutrients, oxygen, as well as the cells and molecules making up the immune system. Through the hemostatic system, the body maintains the integrity of the blood vessels, and prevents bleeding. READ MORE

  3. 3. Resistance to activated protein C a novel risk factor for venous thrombosis

    Author : Peter Svensson; Malmö Klinisk koagulationsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; APC resistance; mutation; venous thrombosis; blood coagulation; Protein C; factor V; Haematology; extracellular fluids; Hematologi; extracellulära vätskor;

    Abstract : Activated protein C resistance (APC resistance) is the most common hereditary condition associated with venous thrombosis. The syndrome known as APC resistance is perfectly linked to a mutation in the gene coding coagulation FV (FV:Q506) mutation changing Arg 506 to Gln in the APC cleavage site. READ MORE

  4. 4. Factor V Leiden mutation and pregnancy. Haemostasis during pregnancy in non-carriers and carriers of factor V Leiden mutation, with special emphasis on placenta-mediated and venous thromboembolic complications and on blood coagulation and fibrinolysis markers for prediction of complications

    Author : Ulla Kjellberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Activated protein C; D-dimer; Factor V Leiden; fibrinolysis; haemostasis; obstetric complications; platelet function; pregnancy; prothrombin fragment 1 2; soluble fibrin; Sonoclot; thrombosis;

    Abstract : Factor V Leiden (FVL) mutation elevates the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in general. During pregnancy, the haemostatic balance is changed in the direction of hypercoagulability, resulting in an increased incidence of VTE. 42 women were followed longitudinally during pregnancy and the puerperium.

  5. 5. Infections Related to the Use of Medical Devices and Changes in the Oropharyngeal Flora

    Author : Hulda Thorarinsdottir; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; thrombosis; critical illness; biofilm; intratracheal intubation; ventilator-associated pneumonia; ; central venous catheters; catheter-related infections; proton pump inhibitors; oropharynx; MICROBIOTA; foreign-body reaction; hemolysis; inflammation;

    Abstract : Background: Humans exist in mutualistic balance with a large range of microbiota. Illness and hospitalization can disturb this balance and contribute to hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), which occur most often in critically ill patients. READ MORE
