    Sammanfattning : Consequences of atherosclerosis may result in a number of diseases of the cardiovascular system that represent serious health problems and major causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Although it is initially considered as disease of fibro-lipid and thrombus deposition in the arterial wall, it also involves an ongoing inflammatory response. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Atherosclerosis is a progressive inflammatory disease that is characterized by the accumulation of lipids, infiltrated cells and fibrous elements in large arteries.This thesis focuses on the molecular mechanisms behind foam cell formation and inflammation, two central processes in the development of atherosclerosis.

  3. 3. IL-25 and B cells in atherosclerosis

    Detta är en avhandling från Experimental Cardiovascular Research Unit, Lund University

    Författare :Polyxeni Mantani; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; IL-25; B cells; ILC2s; IL-5; anti-PC IgM; atherosclerosis; stroke; cardiovascular events;

    Sammanfattning : Popular Abstract in English Atherosclerosis is a disease of medium and large sized vessels of our bodies that is mainly characterized by the deposition of lipids in the vessel walls. Increased lipid levels in the blood of an individual, because of lifestyle habits but also because of genetics, can lead to the formation of an “atherosclerotic plaque”. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Modulaton of gene expression in human aortic smooth muscle cells by Porphyromonas gingivalis : a possible association between periodontitis and atherosclerosis

    Detta är en avhandling från Örebro : Örebro university

    Författare :Boxi Zhang; Örebro universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microarray; Angiopoietin; Smooth muscle cells; TNF; Periodontitis; Atherosclerosis; Porphyromonas gingivalis; Cancer; Inflammasome; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Sammanfattning : Porphyromonas gingivalis is a gram-negative, rod-shaped, and anaerobic bacterium that is involved in the pathogenesis of periodontitis. P. gingivalis produces a variety of virulence factors including gingipains and fimbriae. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Macrophage Activation and AP-1 in Atherosclerosis

    Detta är en avhandling från Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Författare :Maria Stollenwerk; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Proteins; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi; Cardiovascular system; carotid plaque; interleukin-1b; caspase-1.; very low-density lipoprotein; fatty acids; activator protein-1; inflammation; Atherosclerosis; nuclear factor-kB; macrophages; tumor necrosis factor;

    Sammanfattning : High levels of very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) and intermediate density lipoprotein (IDL) have been identified as independent risk factors for coronary heart disease. Hypertriglyceridemia is generally associated with an increased expression of inflammatory makers and inflammation is thought to contribute to atherosclerosis and its complications. LÄS MER
