  2. 2. On certain genetic and metabolic risk factors for carotid stenosis and stroke

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och vård

    Author : Pär W. Wanby; Lars Brudin; Martin Carlsson; Milita Crisby; [2006]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Carotid artery diseases; Carrier proteins; genetics; Cerebrovascular accident; Cerebrovascular disorders; Genetic predisposition to disease; Polymorphism; genetic; VETERINARY MEDICINE Medicine; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Medicin;

    Abstract : The present study evaluated genetic and metabolic factors influencing the risk of acute cerebrovascular disease (CVD) and internal carotid artery stenosis (ICA stenosis) in a Swedish community. The threonine (T) containing protein of the FABP2 A54T gene polymorphism has a greater affinity for long chain fatty acids (FFAs) than the alanine (A) containing protein. READ MORE

  3. 3. Strategies for assessing health risks from two occupational cohorts within the domain of northern Sweden

  4. 4. Studies on cytokines and chemokines in cerebrovascular diseases and experimental cerebral ischemia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Occupational Therapy and Elderly Care Research (NEUROTEC)

    Author : Nikolaos Kostulas; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2001]

    Abstract : Ischemic brain injury secondary to arterial occlusion, a major cause of stroke, is characterized by acute local inflammation, which involves the accumulation of polymorphonuclear neutrophils and other immune cells. Tissue damage resulting from ischemic stroke can be reduced in experimental animal models by blocking leukocyte accumulation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Long-term effects of adjuvant tamoxifen treatment on cardiovascular disease and cancer

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press
