  1. 1. Innate immunity in human atherosclerosis and myocardial infarction : Role of CARD8 and NLRP3

    Author : Geena Paramel Varghese; Karin Fransén; Allan Sirsjö; Liza Ljungberg; Johan Frostegård; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atherosclerosis; Inflammasome; NLRP3; CARD8; Myocardial infarction; Endothelial cells; Polymorphism; IL-1β; Cytokines; Innate immunity; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is complex inflammatory disease of the arterial wall with progressive accumulation of lipids and narrowing of the vessel. Increasing evidence suggest that inflammation plays an important role in plaque stability and often accelerate cardiovascular events such as myocardial infarction (MI). READ MORE

  2. 2. Myocardial metabolism in experimental infarction and heart failure

    Author : Truls Råmunddal; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : Myocardial metabolism; Heart failure; Myocardial infarction; Lipotoxic heart disease; Apolipoprotein B; Arrhythmias; Cardiac reserve; Creatine metabolism;

    Abstract : Abstract The heart is an organ heavily dependent on exogenous lipids for the oxidative production of adenosine-triphosphate (ATP) and therefore maintenance of normal cellular energy homeostasis. However, high energy flux organs such as the heart must closely match lipid import and utilization or otherwise lipids will accumulate in the cardiomyocytes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Myocardial creatine metabolism in experimental infarction and heart failure

    Author : Malin Lindbom; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : Energy metabolism; Creatine; Congestive heart failure; Myocardial infarction; Ventricular arrhythmias; Cardiac remodeling; apolipoprotein B; Lipid metabolism;

    Abstract : The failing heart is characterized by changes in structure, function and metabolism. All these changes are usually defined as pathologic remodelling. An important part of this negative remodelling process is disturbances in the myocardial energy metabolism. READ MORE

  4. 4. Risk markers for a first myocardial infarction

    Author : Anna Margrethe Thøgersen; Annika Rosengren; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : haemostatis; lipoprotein a ; MTHFR; homocysteine; proinsulin; leptin; apolipoprotein A1; DHEAS; myocardial infarction; risk factors;

    Abstract : The development of a first myocardial infarction is associated with a large number of contributing factors. Age, male sex, hypertension, smoking, diabetes, body mass index and hypercholesterolemia are considered as established risk factors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Serum lipoprotein(a) in relation to ischemic heart disease and associated risk factors

    Author : Lisbeth Slunga; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lipoprotein a ; lipids; epidemiology; coronary artery disease; coronary angiography; HLA DR; acute-phase protein; myocardial infarction; HMG CoA reductase inhibitor; simvastatin;

    Abstract : Lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)) consists of an LDL-like particle and the specific protein apo(a), which is very similar to plasminogen. Apo(a) contains repeated kringle structures and a serine protease domain, which cannot be activated by t-PA. Lp(a) is considered to be a predictor for atherosclerotic disease. READ MORE
