  1. 1. Nitric oxide An ally in extracorporeal circulation?

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Vilyam Melki; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Simulated extracorporeal circulation; Inflammation; Nitric oxide; Leukocyte activation; Staphylococcus aureus; Glyceryl trinitrate; Postoperative infection; Thorax Surgery; Thoraxkirurgi;

    Abstract : Many complications associated with heart surgery are due to the negative effects of extracorporeal circulation (ECC). Some of these complications may be attributed to ECC-induced activation of inflammation and coagulation pathways. READ MORE

  2. 2. Airway responsiveness and exhaled nitric oxide : Studies in asthma and Sjögren's syndrome

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Dóra Lúðvíksdóttir; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Airway hyperresponsiveness; nitric oxide; airway inflammation; Sjögren s syndrome; asthma; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : In this thesis, four different types of provocation agents: methacholine, adenosine, cold air and mannitol were used to study different aspects of the airway responsiveness profile in asthma and Sjögren's syndrome. Exhaled nitric oxide (NO) and markers of eosinophil activation, serum eosinophil peroxidase (S-EPO) and eosinophil cationic protein (S-ECP) were measured. READ MORE

  3. 3. Endogenous Nitric Oxide Production and Pulmonary Blood Flow during different experimental lung conditions

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Manja Nilsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nitric oxide; pulmonary blood flow; endotoxin; nitric oxide inhalation; endothelin; hypercapnia; acidosis; lavage-induced lung injury; MEDICINE Surgery Anaesthetics and intensive care; MEDICIN Kirurgi Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care;

    Abstract : Nitric oxide (NO) is an important regulator of pulmonary blood flow and attenuates hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV). Nitric oxide is synthesized enzymatically in a number of tissues, including the lungs, and can also be generated from reduction of nitrite during hypoxia and acidosis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Muscarinic Receptors in the Urinary Bladder - The role of the urothelium regarding cholinergic and nitrergic effects in inflammation

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Intellecta Infolog AB

    Author : Michael Andersson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; urinary bladder; inflammation; cyclophosphamide-induced cystitis; muscarinic receptor; urothelium; nitric oxide; M5 receptor; rat; proliferation; micturition;

    Abstract : Inflammation alters the functional properties of the urinary bladder. Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic inflammatory syndrome in man that is characterized by urgency, frequency and visceral pain. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulation of inducible nitric oxide synthase - Consequences in experimental models of bladder disease

    University dissertation from Rebecka Johansson, Department of Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology, Lund University Hospital, SE-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Rebecka Johansson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Kväveoxid (NO) är en viktig fysiologisk och patologisk mediator och dess relaxerande effekt på blodkärl upptäcktes i slutet av 1980-talet. Idag vet man att NO ingår i flera olika fysiologiska funktioner såsom blodtrycksreglering, nervcellssignalering och immunförsvar. READ MORE
