    Abstract : Consequences of atherosclerosis may result in a number of diseases of the cardiovascular system that represent serious health problems and major causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Although it is initially considered as disease of fibro-lipid and thrombus deposition in the arterial wall, it also involves an ongoing inflammatory response. READ MORE

  3. 3. IL-25 and B cells in atherosclerosis

    University dissertation from Experimental Cardiovascular Research Unit, Lund University

    Author : Polyxeni Mantani; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; IL-25; B cells; ILC2s; IL-5; anti-PC IgM; atherosclerosis; stroke; cardiovascular events;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English Atherosclerosis is a disease of medium and large sized vessels of our bodies that is mainly characterized by the deposition of lipids in the vessel walls. Increased lipid levels in the blood of an individual, because of lifestyle habits but also because of genetics, can lead to the formation of an “atherosclerotic plaque”. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modulaton of gene expression in human aortic smooth muscle cells by Porphyromonas gingivalis : a possible association between periodontitis and atherosclerosis

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Abstract : Porphyromonas gingivalis is a gram-negative, rod-shaped, and anaerobic bacterium that is involved in the pathogenesis of periodontitis. P. gingivalis produces a variety of virulence factors including gingipains and fimbriae. READ MORE

  5. 5. Macrophage Activation and AP-1 in Atherosclerosis

    University dissertation from Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Maria Stollenwerk; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Proteins; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi; Cardiovascular system; carotid plaque; interleukin-1b; caspase-1.; very low-density lipoprotein; fatty acids; activator protein-1; inflammation; Atherosclerosis; nuclear factor-kB; macrophages; tumor necrosis factor;

    Abstract : High levels of very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) and intermediate density lipoprotein (IDL) have been identified as independent risk factors for coronary heart disease. Hypertriglyceridemia is generally associated with an increased expression of inflammatory makers and inflammation is thought to contribute to atherosclerosis and its complications. READ MORE
