  1. 1. Platelets : intracellular signalling and cellular interaction

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Magnus Grenegård; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Activation of platelets is essential to prevent excessive blood loss at the site of vascular injury. These highly reactive cell fragments are also involved in several pathological conditions, in particular arterial thrombosis, which, in the coronary vessels, can lead to reduced blood flow, vessel occlusion and myocardial infarction.

  2. 2. Crosstalk Between Activated Platelets and the Complement System

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Osama A. Hamad; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; platelets; activated platelets; TRAP; chondroitin sulfate; C1q; factor H; C4BP; C3; Compstatin; complement; platelet-leukocyte complexes; platelet microparticles; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Immunology Clinical immunology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Immunologi Klinisk immunologi; Klinisk immunologi; Clinical Immunology;

    Abstract : Several studies have shown that complement and thrombotic events co-exist. Platelets have been suspected to act as the bridge between the two cascade systems. READ MORE

  3. 3. Platelet activation and tissue factor release in hemolytic uremic syndrome

    University dissertation from Department of Pediatrics, Lund University

    Author : Anne-lie Ståhl; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hemolytic uremic syndrome; platelets; tissue factor; LPS; Shiga toxin; complement system; factor H; clusterin;

    Abstract : Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a clinical syndrome characterized by microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia and acute renal failure. There are two subtypes: typical HUS associated with enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) and atypical HUS associated with uninhibited activation of the alternative pathway of complement. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Plasma Contact System New Functional Insights from a Hemostatic and Thrombotic Perspective

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jennie Bäck; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Contact activation; factor XII; platelets; coagulation; antithrombin; C1 inhibitor; hemostasis; biomarkers; vascular disease.; Klinisk immunologi; Clinical Immunology;

    Abstract : The physiological role of the plasma contact system still remains a partial enigma. The aim of the presented work was to expand our understanding of the plasma contact system, focusing on its physiological activation and function, principally from a hemostatic perspective. It also explored contact system activation under pathological conditions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Novel Agonists and Antagonists of Platelet Receptors

    University dissertation from Department of Cardiology, Clinical sciences, Lund University

    Author : Carl Högberg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Platelets; P2Y12; SUCNR1; FPP; hypothermia;

    Abstract : Platelets are central for the primary haemostatis. The platelet has surface bound receptors that are vital for the platelet activation. READ MORE
