  1. 1. Calcitonin gene-related peptide in temporomandibular inflammation

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Författare :Joakim Carleson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2001]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CGRP; Calcitonin gene-related peptide; neuropeptides; inflammation; temporomandibular joint; masseter muscle; TMJ; TMD; nociception; scratching; neurogenic inflammation.;

    Sammanfattning : Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is an important biological mediator and cell-signalling molecule, involved in modulation of the immune system, inflammatory response and pain modulation. During pain and inflammation, sensory nerves are activated, and sensory neuropeptides such as CGRP is released from peripheral and central nerve endings. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Vasomotor symptoms in postmenopausal women : the role of acupuncture and calcitonin gene-related peptide

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Författare :Yvonne Wyon; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : A majority of postmenopausal women experience vasomotor symptoms, which have a significant impact on the women's quality of life. Estrogens are the treatment of choice but can for different reasons not be used by all women. There is therefore a great need for viable alternative treatments. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Contributions of calcitonin gene-related peptide in ischemia, inflammation and nociception

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Författare :Gunilla Brodda Jansen; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1996]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 5-hydroxytryptamine; acupuncture; blood flow; calcitonin gene-related pep- tide; edema formation; histamine; inflammation; ischemia; mast cells; neuropeptides; neutrophils; nociception; sensory stimulation; substance P; surgical flaps; withdrawal res;

    Sammanfattning : The sensory neuropeptide Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is a very potent vaso- dilator with a wide distribution in peripheral sensory nerves, often co-stored with sub- stance P. In the present study, the effects of CGRP in different models of ischemia, inflammation and nociception were examined. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Release and effects of calcitonin gene-related peptide in myocardial ischaemia

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Författare :Göran Källner; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1998]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : A proportion of sensory C-fibres is characterized by sensitivity to the pungent agent in hot peppers, capsaicin. Upon stimulation by capsaicin, co-stored peptides including calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), are released from the peripheral terminals of these fibres. LÄS MER
