  1. 1. Hyperglycemia in Experimental Cerebral Ischemia

    Author : Maria Molnar; Fredrik Lennmyr; Sten Lindahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; brain ischemia; cardiac arrest; cytokines; gene expression; glucose; hyperglycemia; microarray; oxidative stress; pigs; rats; reperfusion; resuscitation S100β; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Cerebral ischemia is a life-threatening condition associated with a substantial morbidity and mortality. Hyperglycemia, a common coexisting phenomenon in both stroke and cardiac arrest (CA), may further aggravate ischemic brain injury. To date, the therapeutic possibilities are lim-ited and the search for new treatment modalities is warranted. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hyperglycemia and Focal Brain Ischemia : Clinical and Experimental Studies

    Author : Nasim Farrokhnia; Andreas Terént; Fredrik Lennmyr; Elisabeth Björk; Henrik Hagberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Internal medicine; cerebrovascular disorders; diabetes mellitus; hyperglycemia; infarction; middle cerebral artery; ischemia; mitogen-activated protein kinases; mortality; rats; reactive oxygen species; reperfusion; signal transduction; therapeutics; Invärtesmedicin; Internal medicine; Invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Diabetes is a major risk factor for ischemic stroke and is associated with increased mortality. Additionally, hyperglycemia, a common complication in acute stroke, is associated with poor outcome. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hyperglycemia, nutrition and health outcomes in preterm infants

    Author : Itay Zamir; Magnus Domellöf; Elisabeth Stoltz Sjöström; Kathryn Beardsall; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neonatal hyperglycemia; preterm infants; early programming; insulin; blood pressure; neurodevelopment; MABC-2; EXPRESS; LIGHT; continuous glucose monitoring; parenteral nutrition; postnatal growth; pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Abstract : BackgroundSurvival among very low birth weight (VLBW) and extremely preterm (EPT) infants has increased markedly during the last decades. Neonatal hyperglycemia is common in these infants and is known to be associated with adverse outcomes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mechanisms of acidosis-mediated ischemic brain damage: Histopathology and pathophysiology

    Author : Ping-An Li; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurology; Microvascular patency; Cyclosporin A; Bioenergetic state; Extracellular pH; Calcium transient; Neuronal damage; Hypoglycemia; Hyperglycemia; Cerebral ischemia; Acidosis; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Exaggerated acidosis due to preischemic hyperglycemia shortens the maturation time for cell death and turns selective neuronal damage into pannecrosis. Some issues concerning the mechanisms are yet to be clarified. READ MORE

  5. 5. Diabetic Vascular Complications & Inflammation - role of NFAT and TNFalpha

    Author : Jenny Öhman; Kardiovaskulär forskning - immunitet och ateroskleros; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; vascular; hyperglycemia; osteopontin; NFAT; diabetes; retinopathy; TNF; UTP;

    Abstract : Vascular complications of diabetes account for the majority of morbidity and mortality among diabetic patients. Large clinical trials have identified hyperglycemia as a risk factor in the development of diabetic vascular complications. READ MORE
