  1. 1. Neuroinflammation and pain

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Linda Block; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuroinflammation; Pain; Persistant pain; Astrocytes; Morphine; Naloxone; Intrathecal administration;

    Abstract : ABSTRACT Background: Persistent pain that remains long after the physiological trigger has been resolved is a disabling condition. A possible mechanism for the transition from acute physiological pain to persistent pain involves low-grade inflammation in the central nervous system, in which inflammatory-activated astrocytes play a significant role.

  2. 2. Pathophysiology of blood-brain barrier, brain edema and cell injury following hyperthermia : New role of heat shock protein, nitric oxide and carbon monoxide : an experimental study in rat using light and electron microscopy

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the molecular mechanisms of hyperthermia induced brain damage in rats. The results clearly establish that hyperthermia caused by 4 h heat stress at 38° C is associated with a breakdown of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) permeability which seems to be instrumental in causing brain edema and cell injury.

  4. 4. Short- and long-term cardiovascular and behavioural effects of oxytocin : mechanisms involved and influence of female steroid hormones

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine

    Author : Maria Petersson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oxytocin; nociceptive thresholds; naloxone; blood pressure; heart rate; spontaneous motor activity; oestrous cycle; ovariectomy; oestradiol; progesterone; weight gain; clonidine; locus coeruleus; alpha 2-adrenoreceptor; cholecystokinin; insulin; gastrin; corticosterone; ACTH; rat;

    Abstract : The aim of the present thesis was to investigate short- and long-term cardiovascular and behavioural effects of oxytocin. In addition, the influence of female steroid hormones as well as possible mechanisms behind the oxytocin induced effects were investigated. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analgetic and algetic effects of adenosine in healthy volunteers and patients with coronary disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine at Huddinge University Hospital

    Author : Bita Sadigh; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Angina pectoris; silent myocardial ischemia; opioid; gender; preconditioning;

    Abstract : Background Adenosine is a bimodal neuromodulator with algesic and analgesic effects. The different effects of adenosine are partly due to the route of administration. Low-dose adenosine infusion induces analgesia at the same magnitude as morphine, while adenosine as bolus injection induces chest pain, similar in character as angina pectoris. READ MORE
