    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Septisk shock (shock utlöst av blodförgiftning) är en potentiellt dödlig komplikation till infektion med bakterier eller andra mikroorganismer. Inte bara de infekterande organismerna i sig, men också de inflammatoriska system och signalsubstanser som aktiveras, orsaker ett generaliserat inflammatoriskt tillstånd. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Urinvägsinfektion är en av de vanligaste förekommande bakteriella infektioner hos människa och vid 30 års ålder har var femte kvinna någon gång varit drabbad. 80% av alla urinvägsinfektioner orsakas av bakterien Escherichia coli (E. coli). Urinväginfektion kan ge sig till känna i två former. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nitric oxide production by the intestinal mucosa during hypoperfusion

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Johan Snygg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nitric oxide; nitric oxide synthase; intestinal epithelium; hemorrhagic shock; cardiac tamponade; septic shock; lower body negative pressure; splanchnic circulation; substrate; laser Doppler;

    Abstract : The present thesis is based on the concept that gastrointestinal blood hypoperfusion is a common phenomenon associated with critical illness. Furthermore, the development of the multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) is proposed to be initiated by gastrointestinal mucosal barrier dysfunction, allowing intestinal luminal contents to penetrate into the tissue and activate a systemic inflammatory response.

    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

    Author : Björn Åkesson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to elucidate the role of nitric oxide (NO) in the transduction signalling of insulin and glucagon release by stimulating or inhibiting islet endogenous NO-production as well as by using NO donors. Insulin release stimulated by L-arginine, the substrate for constitutive NO-synthase (cNOS)-catalyzed NO-production, was increased by the selective NOS-inhibitor NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) and suppressed by the intracellular NO donor hydroxylamine.
