    Abstract : Dietary fat quality influences the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. A low-grade inflammation is suggested to contribute to the disease development, often accompanied by obesity. Whereas n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) have been considered anti-inflammatory, n-6 PUFA have been proposed to act pro-inflammatory. READ MORE

  2. 2. Traces of Repolarization Inhomogeneity in the ECG

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Milos Kesek; Anders Englund; Bertil Lindahl; Markku Mäkijärvi; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Internal medicine; cardiology; repolarization; ECG; QT dispersion; nondipolar components; T-wave; principal component analysis; repolarization inhomogeneity; Invärtesmedicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Repolarization inhomogeneity is arrhythmogenic. QT dispersion (QTd) is an easily accessible ECG-variable, related to the repolarization and shown to carry prognostic information. It was originally thought to reflect repolarization inhomogeneity. Lately, arguments have been risen against this hypothesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biomarkers of Renal Function in Acute Coronary Syndromes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Axel Åkerblom; Stefan James; Lars Wallentin; Torbjörn Omland; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cystatin C; glomerular filtration rate; GFR; creatinine; acute coronary syndrome; ACS; kidney; renal; mortality; death; myocardial infarction; Cardiology; Kardiologi; Medicin; Medicine; Internal Medicine; Internmedicin;

    Abstract : The thesis aimed to investigate cystatin C and creatinine-based estimates of glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), both at admission and during follow-up, on the combined endpoint of cardiovascular death and myocardial infarction in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We also evaluated two cystatin C assays and assessed genetic determinants of cystatin C concentrations. READ MORE
