    Abstract : The development of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and colon cancer (CC) has been shown to involve the up-regulation of inflammatory mediators and the machinery producing them such as the eicosanoids. Changes in the expression of extracellular matrix proteins and their related integrin receptors have also been shown to be important in the advancement IBD and CC. READ MORE

  2. 2. Experimental cardiopulmonary cerebral resuscitation : with special reference to cerebral eicosanoid production and free radical scavengers

    Author : Xiaoli Liu; Marianne Forsman; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Reperfusion injury after restoration of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) is often considered one of the predominant factors in determining neurological outcome in cardiac arrest. Therefore one of the main targets of experimental and clinical studies has been to mitigate this reperfusion injury. READ MORE

  3. 3. Early steps of Eicosanoid precursor absorption and tissue distribution

    Author : Tor Melin; Lund Medicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lipids; mebran; steroider; Lipider; steroids; membranes; Gastro-enterology; Gastroenterologi;

    Abstract : Eicosanoids are important for a wide range of physiological and pathophysiological processes.How their essential fatty acid precursors are absorbed and tissue distributed is not well charactherized. When given orally to rats, arachidonic acid (20:4) was retained in the small intestine to a larger extent than linoleic acid (18:2). READ MORE

  4. 4. Involvement of Eicosanoid Signaling in Intestinal Epithelial Cell Survival

    Author : John Öhd; Malmö Experimentell patologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; General pathology; Tcf Lef; Bcl-2 family; b-catenin; 5-LO; apoptosis; cell survival; colorectal cancer; COX-2; LTD4; CysLT1 R; pathological anatomy; Patologi allmän ; patologisk anatomi;

    Abstract : Eicosanoids are known to be involved in many different aspects of eukaryotic physiology and pathology. Notably, over the past 10 years much attention has been given to cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) due to its involvement in colorectal cancer. Less is known about the other major branch of arachidonic acid metabolism, namely the lipoxygenases (LO). READ MORE

  5. 5. Methodological studies of eicosanoid enzyme gene expression in vascular endothelium exposed to biomechanical stress

    Author : Roya Doroudi; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; prostanoids; endothelium; quantitative RT-PCR; perfusion model; shear stress; intraluminal pressure; immediate-early genes;

    Abstract : Prostaglandins are the major eicosanoids synthesized by vascular endothelial cells, and the vasculature is an important target organ for their bioactive metabolites. In vitro studies have shown that biomechanical forces are important regulators of vascular expression of prostanoid enzymes and release of metabolites. READ MORE
