    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

  2. 2. Development of a Passive Immunization Strategy Against Atherosclerosis

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Författare :Alexandru Schiopu; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; regression; plaque; peptide; oxidized LDL; immune system; carotid stenosis; cardiovascular diseases; apolipoprotein B-100; atherosclerosis; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Cardiovascular system; vascular injury; ultrasound; antibodies;

    Sammanfattning : Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease, characterized by the accumulation of lipids and fibrous tissue in the wall of medium and large-sized arteries. The characteristic culprit of the disease is the atheroma, or atherosclerotic plaque, a patchy thickening of the arterial wall which affects the lumen, inducing various degrees of stenosis. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Fibromodulin and Dystrophin in Atherosclerosis: Novel roles for extracellular matrix in plaque development

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund Univeristy

    Författare :Annelie Shami; [2014]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atherosclerosis; fibromodulin; dystrophin; carotid artery; lipid accumulation; restenosis; plaque;

    Sammanfattning : Cardiovascular disease represents nearly half the cases of noncommunicable diseases worldwide and is the leading global cause of death. The main underlying cause is atherosclerosis, and in atherosclerotic plaque progression the structure, composition and integrity of a dynamic extracellular matrix (ECM) is one very important factor.

  4. 4. Gene Expression Profiling of Human Atherosclerosis

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Sara Hägg; Johan Björkegren; Jesper Tegnér; Josefin Skogsberg; Olle Melander; [2009]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Atherosclerosis is a progressive inflammatory disease that causes lipid accumulation in the arterial wall, leading to the formation of plaques. The clinical manifestations of plaque rupture—stroke and myocardial infarction—are increasing worldwide and pose an enormous economic burden for society. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Identification of inflammatory genes involved in the pathogenesis of human and experimental atherosclerosis

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Författare :Hanna E Agardh; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Atherosclerosis is a chronic systemic inflammatory disease of large and medium sized arteries, developing slowly and silently over decades. The disease is usually not apparent until occurrence of a sudden clinical symptom, such as myocardial infarction (MI) or stroke. LÄS MER
