    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Vascular smooth muscle cells VSMC ; cell phenotype; microRNA; Aneurysm; hypertension; Actin polymerization; GATA6; MRTFA; Vascular disease;

    Abstract : As the world population is pushing toward 8 billion, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) remain the leading cause of death worldwide, representing 30% of all global deaths. A large body of work has recognized that smooth muscle cells (SMCs) surrounding the blood vessels play a prominent role in the development and progression of cardiovascular diseases. READ MORE

  2. 2. Neutrophil chemotaxis. Analyses of neutrophil chemotaxis i a new fluid gradient chamber

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Reza Ebrahimzadeh Pirshahid; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell movement; Chemotaxis; Leukocyte; Neutrophil; Human; Filter; Methods; N-Formylmethionine-Leucyl-Phenylalanine; Normal distribution; Partial differential equation;

    Abstract : The leukocytes have, as part of their function in immune system, the ability to leave the bloodstream, penetrate the vascular wall and migrate towards extravascular targets. This behaviour of the leukocytes has been extensively studied both in vivo and in vitro since the 19th century but the mechanisms underlying leukocyte migration are not yet fully understood.

    Abstract : Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology, affecting large and medium-sized arteries, predominantly in postmenopausal women. Its pathogenesis is probably multifactorial. Several studies suggest that GCA is an antigen-driven disease. READ MORE

    Abstract : The afferent arteriole of the kidney is a unique vascular segment: it is the effector of the renal hemodynamic autoregulation. The use of the isolated, perfused juxtamedullary nephron preparation makes it possible to visualize the afferent arteriole while preserving its tissue surroundings and the functional integrity of the nephron.
