  1. 6. Vascular Endothelin and Angiotensin Receptors Regulation in Inflammatory Arterial Disorders

    University dissertation from Department of Internal Medcine, University Hospital of Lund

    Author : Ivan Dimitrijevic; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ischemic heart disease; resistance artery; giant cell arteritis; temporal artery; immunohistochemistry; AT2 receptor; AT1 receptor; Endothelin-1; ETA receptor; ETB receptor;

    Abstract : The present thesis is aimed to examine the hypothesis that the degree of vascular inflammation correlates with the expression of vascular endothelin and angiotensin receptors. The receptor changes were studied in subcutaneous resistance arteries in patients with different degrees of ischemic heart disease (IHD). READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish POPULÄRVETENSKAPLIG SAMMANFATTNING (Popularized summary in Swedish) Alkohol inta's för sina effekter på hjärnan och ger upphov till välbehagskänslor och berusning. Alkoholmissbruk är dock skadligt för hjärncellerna. READ MORE

  3. 8. Influence of FK506 on certain aspects of lymphocyte activation and lymphocyte-endothelial cell interactions in vitro

    University dissertation from Divison of Medical Microbiology

    Author : Håkan Karlsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cytokine; adhesion molecule; endothelium; lymphocyte metabolism; interleukin 2 receptor; FK506; cyclosporin A; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi; Immunology; transplantation; serology; Microbiology; bacteriology; mycology; virology; Immunologi; serologi;

    Abstract : In the present thesis, the influence of the immunosuppressive drug FK506 on mitogen-induced changes in the expression of subunits a and ß of the IL-2 receptor by isolated human peripheral blood mononuclear cells has been studied. Up-regulation and release of the a-chain were potently depressed by FK506, even in the presence of exogenous IL-2. READ MORE

  4. 9. Intensive Care Unit Muscle Wasting Skeletal Muscle Phenotype and Underlying Molecular Mechanisms

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sudhakar Reddy Aare; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acute quadriplegic myopathy; gene expression; myosin; heat shock proteins; mechanical ventilation; myostatin; sepsis; corticosteroids; diaphragm; Clinical Neurophysiology; Klinisk neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Acute quadriplegic myopathy (AQM), or critical illness myopathy, is a common debilitating acquired disorder in critically ill intensive care unit (ICU) patients characterized by generalized muscle wasting and weakness of limb and trunk muscles. A preferential loss of the thick filament protein myosin is considered pathognomonic of this disorder, but the myosin loss is observed relatively late during the disease progression. READ MORE

  5. 10. Leukocyte dysfunction and inflammatory markers in patients with chronic kidney disease and patients on dialysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences, Danderyd Hospital

    Author : Jenny Olsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and patients on dialysis are at risk for serious infectious complications. This is partly due to leukocyte dysfunction, which is a consequence of both uremic retention solutes and of dialysis. READ MORE
