  1. 1. Vascular Endothelin and Angiotensin Receptors Regulation in Inflammatory Arterial Disorders

    University dissertation from Department of Internal Medcine, University Hospital of Lund

    Author : Ivan Dimitrijevic; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ischemic heart disease; resistance artery; giant cell arteritis; temporal artery; immunohistochemistry; AT2 receptor; AT1 receptor; Endothelin-1; ETA receptor; ETB receptor;

    Abstract : The present thesis is aimed to examine the hypothesis that the degree of vascular inflammation correlates with the expression of vascular endothelin and angiotensin receptors. The receptor changes were studied in subcutaneous resistance arteries in patients with different degrees of ischemic heart disease (IHD). READ MORE

  2. 2. Detection of apoptosis in patients with coronary artery disease Assessment of temporal patterns and potential sources

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Aleksander Szymanowski; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Region Östergötland.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The atherosclerotic process and its consequences are considered driven by an imbalance between pro- and ant-inflammatory actions. One contributing factor in this scenario is an altered regulation of apoptosis, which affects both immune, vascular and myocardial cells. READ MORE

  3. 3. Giant cell arteritis. Epidemiological, morphological and molecular genetic studies

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Vigdís Pétursdóttir; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Giant cell arteritis; temporal artery; aorta; epidemiology; atrophy; calcification; estrogen receptor a; morphometry; immunocytochemistry; Western blot; molecular genetics;

    Abstract : Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology, affecting large and medium-sized arteries, predominantly in postmenopausal women. Its pathogenesis is probably multifactorial. Several studies suggest that GCA is an antigen-driven disease. READ MORE

  4. 4. Medin Amyloid in Human Arteries and its Association with Arterial Diseases

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Siwei Peng; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pathology; Amyloid; Medin; Lactadherin; Aneurysm; Aortic dissection; Temporal artery; Arteritis; Giant cell; Pre-aggregation.; Patologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Pathology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Patologi;

    Abstract : Amyloid is a form of abnormal protein aggregation within the living body. Massive deposits can lead to organ failure. There is also increasing evidence that smaller pre-amyloid aggregates exert direct toxic effects to cells. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pre-Hospital Decision Process and Prognosis in Men and Women with Coronary Heart Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Susanne Nielsen; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acute myocardial infarction; decision-making process; experiences; grounded theory; epidemiology; mortality; survival; coronary artery bypass grafting; temporal trends;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to describe experiences, strategies and actions in the prehospital phase among patients with a first acute myocardial infarction and to examine long-term trends in survival among patients with coronary heart disease. The thesis consists of two qualitative and two quantitative studies. READ MORE
