  1. 1. Pharmacological interactions between angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, bradykinin and nitric oxide

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Karin Persson; Karl-Erik Andersson; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; angiotensin-converting enzyme; angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors; atherosclerosis; bradykinin; endothelium; in vitro; nitric oxide; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular diseases are a major cause of death in Western countries. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) is as a key enzyme in the renin-angiotensin system involved in the regulation of blood pressure, and water and electrolyte balance in the body. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cytokine induced airway hyperreactivity characterized in an in-vitro model of asthma

    University dissertation from Laboratory of Clinical and Experimental Allergy Research, Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Institute of Clinical Science, Malmö University Hospital, Lund University, Sweden

    Author : Yaping Zhang; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; toxicology; Farmakologi; farmakognosi; MAPK; TNF-alpha; 5-HT; Respiratory system; Andningsorganen; Pharmacological sciences; pharmacognosy; pharmacy; interleukin-1beta; hyperresponsiveness; endothelin-1; airway; bradykinin; toxikologi; farmaci;

    Abstract : Asthma is a chronic disorder of the lower airways, characterized by inflammation and hyperreactivity. Pro-inflammatory cytokines like tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta) are known to play important roles in the pathogenesis, but our knowledge how these cytokines contribute to the development of airway hyperreactivity is limited.

  3. 3. Effects of Inflammatory Mediators on Pulmonary Airways

    University dissertation from Medicinska fakulteten, Lunds universitet

    Author : Ofir Bachar; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; electric ?eld stimulation; bradykinin; airway; tumor necrosis factor a; Respiratory system; nitric oxide; Andningsorganen; Toll-like receptor; prostaglandin E2; neurotrophin; allergy;

    Abstract : Chronic inflammation is together with excessive contraction of the airways key features of asthma. The aims of the thesis were to analyze the effect of inflammatory mediators on airway smooth muscle, using an in vitro model of cultured murine airways. READ MORE

  4. 4. Interactions between bacterial surface proteins and components of the fibrinolytic and contact phase systems

    University dissertation from Abdelhakim Ben Nasr, Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Section for Molecular Pathogenesis, Lund University, P.O. Box 94, S-221 00, Lund Sweden

    Author : Abdelhakim Ben Nasr; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; virology; bacteriology; Microbiology; virulence; bradykinin; plasma kallikrein; curli; contact phase system; kininogens; plasminogen; M-like proteins; Escherichia coli; Streptococcus pyogenes; group C and group G streptococci; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : This thesis describes novel molecular host-parasite interactions with potential significance for the understanding of pathological processes manifested with bacterial infections. Bacterial surface proteins and virulence determinants are shown to mediate the accumulation at the surface of the pathogen of key components of the fibrinolytic and contact phase systems. READ MORE

  5. 5. On angiotensin II receptor type 2 receptors in the small intestine

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Sara Ewert; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; renin-angiotensin; angiotensin; small intestine; mucosa; epithelium; AT1; AT2; bradykinin; BK2 receptor; nitric oxide; iNOS; smooth muscle; contractility;

    Abstract : The endocrine renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is important in the regulation of extracellular fluid volume and systemic blood pressure in strenuous conditions such as hypovolemia. Also present locally in peripheral tissues, all components of RAS are expressed and have been shown to modulate development, cell growth and inflammation. READ MORE
