Sammanfattning : This thesis describes early inflammatory responses involving interactions between leukocytes and the endothelial lining of the blood vessel wall. An adhesion molecule, E-selectin, which is upregulated on interleukin-1 activated endothelium, was found to mediate rolling between leukocytes and endothelial cells in vivo. LÄS MER
2. Vascular Interactions in Innate Immunity and Immunothrombosis: : Models of Endothelial Protection
Sammanfattning : The phenomenon known as immunothrombosis has garnered increased attention over the last few years. Much work has been done to characterize the cross talk between hemostasis and the innate immune system. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background: Ischemic heart disease is a major cause of death globally. Rupture of a coronary atherosclerotic plaque with occluding thrombus formation is the main cause of myocardial ischemia and infarction. LÄS MER
4. Vascular mechanical properties and endothelial function with special reference to pregnancy and hormonal influences
Sammanfattning : Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity. Early recognition of vascular changes, both structural and functional, may help to identify individuals at risk for CVD. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The endothelium integrates vascular tone by the synthesis of vasoactive substances secreted abluminally to the underlying vascular smooth muscle. Endothelial function has previously been shown to be impaired in primary, secondary and experimental forms of hypertension. LÄS MER
