  1. 1. Low-Density Lipoprotein Oxidation and Renal Dysfunction New Markers of Poor Prognosis in Patients with Unstable Coronary Artery Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nina Johnston; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; myocardial infarction; unstable angina; oxidized low-density lipoprotein; renal function; prognosis; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : In patients with unstable coronary artery disease (CAD) biochemical markers are emerging as useful tools in clinical management. In this thesis we studied the use of markers of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation and renal function. READ MORE

  2. 2. Platelet-activating factor and lysophospatidylcholine in oxidized low density lipoprotein-mediated immune activation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine

    Author : Yihui Huang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]

    Abstract : Inflammation is a risk factor for development of cardiovascular disease, as in addition to known risk factors such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, smoking and diabetes. Patients with inflammatory diseases including SLE have an enhanced risk of cardiovascular disease. READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies on Cell Injury Induced by Hypoxia-Reoxygenation and Oxidized Low Density Lipoprotein With Special Reference to the Protectiove Effect of Mixed Tocopherols, Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Transforming Growth Factor-beta1

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Hongjiang Chen; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; Tocopherols; fish oil; TGF-β1; NOS; adhesion molecules; MMPs; PKB; MAPK; H-R; Ox-LDL; Myocytes; HCAECs; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Hypoxia-reoxygenation (H-R) injury is an important clinical phenomenon in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Endothelial injury is a critical step in the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis. Therefore, endothelial and cardiomyocyte protection has been considered an effective step in prevention and treatment of CAD. READ MORE

  4. 4. Regulation of human macrophage gene expression by oxidized low density lipoprotein. Studies on tumor necrosis factor-a and global gene expression profiles

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Mikael C. O. Englund; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atherosclerosis; macrophage; gene expression; TNF-a; oxidized LDL; oxysterol; transcription factor; microarray;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is a multifactorial and progressive disease that is characterized by a focal thickening of the arteries caused by accumulation of lipoproteins, extracellular matrix, and the migration and proliferation of various cell types. Among the cells found in atherosclerotic lesions are macrophages, which accumulate lipids and are transformed into foam cells. READ MORE
