  1. 1. The Role of Chlamydia pneumoniae-induced Platelet Activation in Cardiovascular Disease In vitro and In vivo studies

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och vård

    Author : Hanna Kälvegren; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chlamydia pneumoniae; Platelet; atherosclerosis; Infection; LDL-oxidation; Percutaneous coronary intervention; Cardiovascular disease; Serotonin; Reactive oxygen species production; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Pharmacological research Pharmacology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Farmakologisk forskning Farmakologi;

    Abstract : The common risk factors for atherosclerosis, such as obesity, high cholesterol levels, sedentary lifestyle, diabetes and high alcohol intake, only explain approximately 50% of cardiovascular disease events. It is thereby important to identify new mechanisms that can stimulate the process of atherosclerosis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Platelet dysfunction in diabetes mellitus : : Impact of hyperglycemia and glycoprotein GPIIb/IIIa inhibition

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine

    Author : Masoud Razmara; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Diabetes mellitus (DM) is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, due to diabetic angiopathy. Hyperglycemia is one of the factors that may cause platelet dysfunction in diabetic patients. This work investigated mechanisms underlying hyperglycemia-induced platelet dysfunction, and its impact in DM patients. READ MORE

  3. 3. Experimental Aspects of Topical Haemostatic Agents

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Katarina Björses; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; platelet stimulation; coagulation factors; experimental bleeding models; topical haemostatic agents;

    Abstract : Control of haemorrhage is vital in all operative settings. As complement to traditional surgical haemostatic techniques, a heterogeneous collection of absorbable substances with haemostatic capacity have been developed; topical haemostatic agents. READ MORE

  4. 4. Formation and Relevance of Platelet Subpopulations

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Anna Södergren; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Platelets are important players in the hemostatic system, acting as guardians of vessel integrity. When they come across a breach in the vessel wall, they quickly adhere to the damaged surface, secrete activating and adhesive compounds from their secretory granules, recruit additional platelets into a growing platelet plug and support the action of the coagulation system.

  5. 5. The role of platelet thrombin receptors PAR1 and PAR4 in platelet activation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Karin Vretenbrant Öberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Platelets play a pivotal role in coagulation and haemostasis. Their most prominent task is to seal damaged blood vessels by the formation of a platelet plug at the damaged area. Once the injury is covered, platelets retract the coagulum to close the wound and allow the blood to flow freely in the vessel. READ MORE
