    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Blodkärlen har till uppgift att distribuera syre och näring till kroppens alla celler, samt att borttransportera slaggprodukter som sedan bildas efter nyttjandet. Dessutom förmedlas en rad signalsubstanser till kroppens vävnader via blodcirkulationen. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Svensk sammanfattning (Swedish Summary) Inflammatoriska sjukdomar i luftvägarna tillhör ett av de vanligaste skälen till ohälsa. Astma, både allergisk och icke allergisk, kan debutera redan under de första levnadsåren och kan på lång sikt ge kroniskt nedsatt lungfunktion. READ MORE

  4. 4. Receptor Upregulation and MAPK Activity in Arteries and Bronchi Following Secondhand Smoke Exposure

    University dissertation from Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Lei Cao; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; coronary arteries; cerebral arteries; 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor; endothelin receptor; secondhand smoke exposure; bronchi;

    Abstract : Cigarette smoking is a major risk factor for cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. Contractile receptor changes have been observed in several vascular diseases. The intracellular mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathways are suggested to be associated with receptor upregulation. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Den främsta orsaken till att cancer kan leda till döden är att tumörceller växer in i angränsande vävnad (invasiv) och tar sig in i blodet eller lymfsystemet och på så sätt sprids (metastaserar) till andra ställen i kroppen och stör funktionen i livsviktiga organ dvs tumören får ett aggressivt växtsätt. Det är därför viktigt, både ur prognostisk och terapeutisk synvinkel, att öka kunskapen om vad det är som gör att en tumör blir aggressiv. READ MORE
