  1. 1. Biomarkers of inflammation in atrial fibrillation

    Författare :Julia Aulin; Jonas Oldgren; Ziad Hijazi; Lars Wallentin; Håkan Wallén; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Atrial fibrillation; biomarkers; inflammation; inflammatory biomarkers; oral anticoagulation; heart failure; left ventricular function; ejection fraction; risk assessment; risk prediction; interleukin 6 IL-6 ; C-reactive protein CRP ;

    Sammanfattning : Atrial fibrillation (AF) is common and associated with increased risk of stroke, heart failure (HF) and mortality. Inflammation is linked to AF.The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate inflammatory activity and cardiovascular outcomes and mortality in patients with AF on effective oral anticoagulation.

  2. 2. Joint disease biomarkers - discovery and application

    Författare :Dovilė Sinkevičiūtė; Reumatologi och molekylär skelettbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Osteoarthritis; Psoriatic arthritis; cartilage; Proteomics; Biomarkers; ELISA; Tissue culture; Extracellular matrix ECM ;

    Sammanfattning : Dysregulated cartilage homeostasis, articular cartilage degradation and abnormal bone remodeling are common denominators in joint disease and can lead to severe disability for the patients. The molecular pathways behind the disease pathology can overlap across different joint diseases. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Biomarkers in Cardiovascular Dysautonomia: an Emerging Field

    Författare :Madeleine Johansson; Kardiovaskulär forskning - hypertoni; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomarkers; Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction; Syncope; Orthostatic hypotension; Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome; Cardiovascular disease; Autonomic dysfunction;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction is a multifactorial disorder manifested as orthostatic hypotension (OH) and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS). OH has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), and the underlying mechanisms are not fully understood and explored. LÄS MER

  4. 4. New Biomarkers for Neuromuscular Function and Myasthenia Gravis

    Författare :Carl Johan Molin; Anna Rostedt Punga; Johan Widenfalk; Nils Hailer; Jan Verschuuren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomarkers; myasthenia gravis; neuromuscular function; neurophysiology;

    Sammanfattning : Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disorder, which is caused by autoantibodies against the acetylcholine receptor (AChR). The cardinal symptom is muscle fatigue, which can range from slight weakness of the extraocular muscles (causing droopy eyelids or double vision), to paralysis of the respiratory muscles. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Invasive treatment of renal artery stenosis - effects on blood pressure, medication, renal function and inflammatory biomarkers

    Författare :Alaa Al Hadad; Lund Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Cardiovascular system; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; inflammatory biomarkers; renal artery stenosis; Renovascular hypertension; percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty; mean pressure gradient;

    Sammanfattning : Renal artery stenosis (RAS) causes hypertension, decreased glomerular filteration rate (GFR), and renal ischemia. RAS is progressive and causes 5-16% of all cases of renal failure. Prevalence of RAS in patients with hypertension is 1-5%. LÄS MER
