  1. 1. Angiotensin II receptor blockers and acute pancreatitis

    Author : Tomas Sjöberg Bexelius; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND: Acute pancreatitis is a disease with potentially lethal consequences. The hormone angiotensin II inhibits the protective mucosa alkaline secretion in the duodenum via the angiotensin II type 1 receptor. A local pancreatic renin-angiotensin system affects enzyme secretion and inflammatory response in the pancreas. READ MORE

  2. 2. Angiotensin II Receptors in the Human Coronary Circulation and in Heart Failure

    Author : Emil Pantev; Kardiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Cardiovascular system; Heart Failure; Human Coronary Arteries; Angiotensin II; AT receptors;

    Abstract : Angiotensin II (Ang II) is a potent vasoconstrictor that is implicated in the pathogenesis of hypertension, heart failure and atherosclerosis. In this thesis, the efficacy and safety of Ang II receptor blockers (ARB) were evaluated. READ MORE

  3. 3. The renin-angiotensin system in renal tubulogenesis. Experimental studies in the rat

    Author : Daina Lasaitiene; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : angiotensin II; extracellular matrix; inflammation; mitochondrial biogenesis; renal development; renin-angiotensin system; thick ascending limb of Henle; tubulogenesis;

    Abstract : The kidney and the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) are vital regulators of blood pressure and salt-water balance. In order to appropriately regulate circulatory homeostasis, the kidney must undergo normal development, in which the RAS plays a crucial role. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mortality in Oxygen-Dependent Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Possibilities for Pharmacological Interventions

    Author : Magnus Ekström; allergologi och palliativ medicin Lungmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; COPD; mortality; survival; comorbidity; cardiovascular disease; cardiovascular drugs; angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor; angiotensin receptor blocker; beta blocker; statin; aspirin; antiplatelet drug; gender; sex; oxygen-dependent; LTOT; trends; excess mortality; SMR; hypoxemia; hypoxia; hypoxaemic;

    Abstract : Background Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major and rising cause of mortality worldwide, especially in women. Patients with chronic hypoxia owing to COPD are treated with long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) but have high morbidity and mortality. READ MORE

  5. 5. Atrial Fibrillation in the setting of Coronary Artery Disease : Risks and outcomes with different treatment options

    Author : Gorav Batra; Jonas Oldgren; Gunnar Gislason; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atrial fibrillation; coronary artery disease; acute coronary syndrome; myocardial infarction; percutaneous coronary intervention; coronary artery bypass grafting; antithrombotic therapy; angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors; angiotensin II receptor blockers; epidemiology; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of mortality worldwide and atrial fibrillation (AF) is a prevalent arrhythmia associated with increased risk of mortality and morbidity. Despite improved outcome in both diseases, there is a need to further describe the prevalence, outcome and management of CAD in patients with concomitant AF. READ MORE
