  1. 1. Biomarkers of inflammation in atrial fibrillation

    Author : Julia Aulin; Jonas Oldgren; Ziad Hijazi; Lars Wallentin; Håkan Wallén; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Atrial fibrillation; biomarkers; inflammation; inflammatory biomarkers; oral anticoagulation; heart failure; left ventricular function; ejection fraction; risk assessment; risk prediction; interleukin 6 IL-6 ; C-reactive protein CRP ;

    Abstract : Atrial fibrillation (AF) is common and associated with increased risk of stroke, heart failure (HF) and mortality. Inflammation is linked to AF.The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate inflammatory activity and cardiovascular outcomes and mortality in patients with AF on effective oral anticoagulation.

    Abstract : To facilitate early diagnosis of diseases and elucidation of the processes involved in their development and progression, various specific compounds or ‘biomarkers’ are often monitored. The first step is to decide which compounds to analyze. READ MORE

  4. 4. Acute Pancreatitis. Biomarkers and radiology assessment

    Author : Hanna Sternby; Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : acute pancreatitis; severity grade; Biomarkers; morphology; classification; radiology assessment; Acute pancreatitis; severity grade; Biomarkers; morphology; classification; radiology assessment;

    Abstract : Background: Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a common and potentially severe disease. Early identification of severity grade is crucial for the outcome of the patient. For study approaches and comparison of inter-institutional data the AP patients need to be uniformly classified. READ MORE

  5. 5. Joint disease biomarkers - discovery and application

    Author : Dovilė Sinkevičiūtė; Reumatologi och molekylär skelettbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Osteoarthritis; Psoriatic arthritis; cartilage; Proteomics; Biomarkers; ELISA; Tissue culture; Extracellular matrix ECM ;

    Abstract : Dysregulated cartilage homeostasis, articular cartilage degradation and abnormal bone remodeling are common denominators in joint disease and can lead to severe disability for the patients. The molecular pathways behind the disease pathology can overlap across different joint diseases. READ MORE
