    Författare :Roland Fiskesund; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the industrialized countries and a growing concern for the developing world. The underlying cause of almost all CVD is atherosclerosis, a process that is characterized by a low-grade inflammation in the artery walls. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Nutritional status, body composition and diet in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

    Sammanfattning : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease with higher mortality rate than in the general population, which is largely attributed to cardiovascular disease (CVD). Another consequence of the inflammatory process is change in body composition with decreased muscle mass and increased fat mass. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : This thesis analyzed the relationship between breastfeeding, nasopharyngeal colonization and acute otitis media (AOM) in children. Nasopharyngeal cultures were collected from 400 children and milk samples from their mothers in connection with the scheduled visits to well baby clinics at 1-3, 4-7 and 8-12 months of age, and episodes of AOM and URI were documented.

    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the prototype of chronic inflammatory disease associated with a 1.5-2 fold increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and premature mortality. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Natural antibodies against phosphorylcholine as potential protective factors in atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease and systemic lupus erythematosus

    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Atherosclerosis is the most important contributor to cardiovascular disease (CVD). Although it was initially considered as a bland lipid storage disease, processes of inflammation and autoimmunity are now considered to play a major role in atherosclerosis. LÄS MER
