  1. 1. Immunopathology of Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    Author : Mohammad Kadivar; Leukocyt migration; []
    Keywords : Inflammatory bowel disease IBD ; Crohn s disease; Ulcerative colitis; T cell; Monocyte; macrophage; Neutrophil; anti-TNFa treatment; IBD disease activity index;

    Abstract : Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic inflammatory condition affecting the gastrointestinal tract, with a remitting and relapsing course. There are two main forms of IBD: Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). READ MORE

  2. 2. Towards Heart Rate Variability Tools in P-Health : Pervasive, Preventive, Predictive and Personalized

    Author : Farhad Abtahi; Kaj Lindecrantz; Birgitta Janerot Sjöberg; Fernando Seoane; Annette Bruchfeld; Metin Akay; KTH; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Heart Rate Variability; Cholinergic Anti-inflammatory Pathway; Autonomic Nervous System; Vagal activity; Biofeedback; Gamification; Serious Gaming; Inflammatory Markers; Raspberry PI; Medicinsk teknologi; Medical Technology; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Heart Rate Variability;

    Abstract : Heart rate variability (HRV) has received much attention lately. It has been shown that HRV can be used to monitor the autonomic nervous system and to detect autonomic dysfunction, especially vagal dysfunction. Reduced HRV is associated with several diseases and has also been suggested as a predictor of poor outcomes and sudden cardiac death. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular mechanisms of glucocorticoids – anti-inflammatory implications

    Author : Krishan Johansson-Haque; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Glucocorticoids (GCs) play important roles in many biological processes including inflammatory responses. The study of this process has involved investigations of cross-talk abilities by GC receptor (GR) with cellular signaling pathways that have been associated with inflammatory disorders or implicated as contributory for the adverse effects observed with GC therapy.

  4. 4. Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs in Cyclooxygenases 1 and 2 : Binding modes and mechanisms from computational methods and free energy calculations

    Author : Yasmin Shamsudin Khan; Johan Åqvist; Hugo Gutiérrez de Terán; Xavier Barril; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; molecular dynamics simulations; binding free energy; molecular docking; cyclooxygenase; non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; free energy perturbation; potentials of mean force;

    Abstract : Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are one of the most commonly used classes of drugs. They target the cyclooxygenases (COX) 1 and 2 to reduce the physiological responses of pain, fever, and inflammation. Due to their role in inducing angiogenesis, COX proteins have also been identified as targets in cancer therapies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Anti-infectious and anti-inflammatory activities of lactoferrin and fragments thereof

    Author : Liliana Håversen; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Lactoferrin (LF), a major protein present in milk, mucosal secretions and secondary granules of neutrophils, has been suggested to participate in host defense at mucosal surfaces and to mediate anti-inflammatory activities. A pepsin-derived fragment of LF has been shown to contain the antibacterial domain of the protein. READ MORE
