Sammanfattning : Angiotensin II (Ang II) is a potent vasoconstrictor that is implicated in the pathogenesis of hypertension, heart failure and atherosclerosis. In this thesis, the efficacy and safety of Ang II receptor blockers (ARB) were evaluated. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : Type II collagen (CII) is the main protein component of cartilage and immune recognition of CII plays a critical role for the development of collagen induced arthritis (CIA), a widely used animal model for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Antigen presentation is an important requirement for the immune response, the more efficient presentation of the antigen the better tolerance will be induced and thereby protect against arthritis.

4. Calcium Responses in the Renal Afferent Arteriole to Angiotensin II and Norepinephrine Stimulation
Sammanfattning : Studies were performed to investigate the influence of the vasoconstrictors angiotensin II (AII) and norepinephrine (NE) on calcium metabolism in smooth muscle cells of afferent arterioles. Fura-2 and image analysis techniques were used to evaluate calcium responses in the proximal and distal parts of afferent arterioles with attached glomeruli. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Stroke is a severe cerebrovascular disease in which the neuronal tissue and vasculature of the brain undergo ischemia-evoked alterations. We have demonstrated an increased expression of cerebrovascular contractile receptors in the brain. This is hypothesized to mitigate cerebral blood flow and exacerbate tissue damage after stroke.
