  1. 1. Trypsinogen and Its Activation in Acute Pancreatitis

    University dissertation from Department of Surgery, Malmö University Hospital, Lund University

    Author : Ulf Petersson; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TAP; ERCP; carboxypeptidase B activation peptide; trypsinogen activation peptide; trypsinogen activation; Acute pancreatitis; trypsinogen; CAPAP; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : Pancreatic enzymes, neutrophils, free radicals and cytokines are involved in the pathophysiology of AP. Clarification of their interaction and time-course will improve our understanding of AP and provide a better basis for treatment. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nitrates and Left Ventricular Dysfunction

    University dissertation from Erik Tingberg Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund Cardiology, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University, Sweden

    Author : Erik Tingberg; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; lipid peroxidation; malondialdehyde; peptide; brain natriuretic peptide; left ventricular dysfunction; nitrates; acute myocardial infarction; heart failure; atrial natriuretic; diuretics; echocardiography; haemodynamic measurements; neurohumoral activation; diastolic dysfunction; Cardiovascular system; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Kardiovaskulära systemet; oxidative stress; isoprostanes;

    Abstract : Use of beta-blockers and inhibitors of the renin angiotensin system (RAS) is established practice in the treatment of chronic heart failure (CHF). Clinical studies also suggest beneficial long-term effects of nitrates in CHF. READ MORE

  3. 3. Acute pancreatitis. With special reference to the activation peptide from carboxypeptidase B (CAPAP) as a predictor of severity

    University dissertation from Department of Surgery, Malmö University Hospital, Lund University

    Author : Stefan Appelros; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; accuracy; exocrine dysfunction; radioimmunoassay; CAPAP; carboxypeptidase B; activation peptide; aetiology; prediction of severity; morbidity; mortality; severe acute pancreatitis; Incidence; acute pancreatitis; sensitivity; specificity; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : There is a wide range in the reported annual incidence of acute pancreatitis (AP). A minority of these patients develop a severe disease characterised by a high mortality and morbidity. In order to improve the outcome for patients with an attack of severe AP it is important to identify these patients early in the course of disease. READ MORE

  4. 4. Activation of professional phagocytes with emphasis on the formyl peptide receptor family

    University dissertation from Department of Surgery, Malmö University Hospital, Lund University

    Author : Jennie Karlsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; phagocyte; G-protein coupled receptor; chemoattractant; formyl peptide receptor; reactive oxygen species; calcium;

    Abstract : Phagocytic cells such as neutrophil granulocytes and monocytes are an essential part of our innate immune system and play an important role in the battle against pathogens. G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) and more specifically chemoattractant receptors are a vital part in guiding phagocytes towards the site of infection. READ MORE

  5. 5. Apoptosis Regulation via the Mitochondrial Pathway Membrane Response upon Apoptotic Stimuli

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kemi

    Author : Marc-Antoine Sani; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Apoptosis; BH4 peptide; Bax-α1 peptide; model membrane; cardiolipin; solid phase peptide synthesis; circular dichroism; solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.; TECHNOLOGY Engineering physics Biophysics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk fysik Biofysik;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was the investigation of the mitochondrial response mechanisms upon apoptotic stimuli. The specific objectives were the biophysical characterization of membrane dynamics and the specific roles of lipids in the context of apoptotic regulation occurring at the mitochondrion and its complex membrane systems.
