  1. 1. Human body composition. Reference data and anthropometric equations. The metabolic syndrome and risk

    Författare :Ingrid Larsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adults; anthropometry; atherosclerotic morbidity; body composition; body fat; cardiovascular disease; DEXA; dual energy x-ray absorptiometry; fat-free mass; FFM; humans; metabolic syndrome; morbidity; mortality; prediction equations; randomly selected sample; reference data; sagittal trunk diameter; TBK; total body potassium; waist circumference;

    Sammanfattning : The determination of body composition is a key to the understanding of the relation between obesity and disease. In order to evaluate body composition data, reference values are needed. Since methods with high validity and reproducibility are expensive and often time consuming, simpler techniques based on anthropometry are needed. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Immune mechanisms in atherosclerotic vascular disease

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine

    Författare :Jasmina Cvetkovic; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atherosclerosis; rheumatoid arthritis; stroke; autoantibodies; pro-inflammatory cytokines;

    Sammanfattning : Atherosclerosis has been categorized as an inflammatory disorder, with similar chronic inflammatory conditions found in rheumatoid arthritis. It entails an unregulated accumulation of lipids in the vessel wall, which leads to the development of cardiovascular diseases. LÄS MER

  3. 3. CYP26B1 as regulator of retinoic acid in vascular cells and atherosclerotic lesions

    Detta är en avhandling från Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Författare :Ali Ateia Elmabsout; Örebro universitet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CYP26B1; alternative splice; vascular cells; atherosclerosis; alltrans-retinoic acid; gene polymorphism; inflammation; statins; Medicin; Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Cardiovascular disease (CVD), currently the most common cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, is caused mainly by atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a chronic multifocal, immunoinflammatory, fibroproliferative disease of medium and large arteries. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Cardiovascular risk factors in renal artery stenosis Effects of renal angioplasty and angiotensin II receptor antagonism

    Detta är en avhandling från Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Författare :Elzbieta Nowakowska-Fortuna; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; inflammation; renovascular hypertension; endothelin 1; apolipoprtoein C-III; brain natriuretic peptides; angiotensin II receptor antagonism; renal angioplasty; atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis;

    Sammanfattning : Renovascular hypertension (RVH) caused by atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (ARAS) is one of the most common forms of secondary hypertension. The prognosis for patients with RVH is much worse compared to patients with primary hypertension, and caused by a high cardiovascular morbidity. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Inflammation in atherosclerosis

    Detta är en avhandling från Örebro : Örebro universitetsbibliotek

    Författare :Ken Jatta; Örebro universitet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atherosclerosis; chemokine; cytokine; inflammation; Lipopolysacchride; Carotid lesion; interleukin; viperin Cig5; smooth muscle cells; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Cardiovascular medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Kardiovaskulär medicin; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    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
