  1. 1. Metabolites of Avena sativa with Blood Cholesterol Lowering Properties

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Chemistry, Centre for Analysis and Synthesis

    Författare :Narda Thuresson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-10]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cholesterol lowering effect; Avena sativa; phytosterols; avenanthramides; 13-HODE;

    Sammanfattning : Cardiovascular diseases are among the most important causes of death in thedeveloped countries. These diseases are partly caused by too high cholesterolconcentrations in the blood. Avena sativa, oat, is the most common spieces of the genus Avena, and produced in huge amounts worldwide. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Ion channels and electrical activity in vascular smooth muscle: Effects of calcium store depletion, cholesterol and cholesterol-lowering drugs

    Detta är en avhandling från Andreas Bergdahl, BMC F12, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Andreas Bergdahl; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Fysiologi; Physiology; statins; endothelin; cholesterol; caveolae; smooth muscle; TRP; Ca2 channels; SOC;

    Sammanfattning : Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) in the vessel wall contract to regulate blood flow and pressure, a function essential for normal circulation through tissues. On the other hand, migration and proliferation of SMCs are important factors in vascular disease, such as atherosclerosis and restenosis following surgical dilatation. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Cholesterol-lowering and anti-atherogenic effects of oats in mice

    Detta är en avhandling från Andreas Bergdahl, BMC F12, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Kristina E Andersson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cholesterol; Inflammation; Bile acids; Atherosclerosis; Oats; Beta-glucans;

    Sammanfattning : The cholesterol-lowering effect of oats is well established, but the crucial properties eliciting this effect need to be further investigated to optimize the use of oats as functional foods. Furthermore, there are almost no reports investigating the effect of oats on atherosclerosis development. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Statin treatment and beta-Amyloid Production in Patients with Alzheimer s Disease

    Detta är en avhandling från Andreas Bergdahl, BMC F12, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Kina Höglund; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer s disease; amyloid precursor protein; beta-amyloid; cholesterol; statins; CSF;

    Sammanfattning : Alzheimer s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder pathologically characterized by neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid plaques. According to the amyloid cascade hypothesis, the increased production of beta-amyloid (Abeta), derived form the amyloid precursor protein (APP), and its aggregation into plaques are key pathological events, driving neurodegeneration in AD.

  5. 5. Effects of growth hormone on cardiovascular risk factors and atherosclerosis

    Detta är en avhandling från Andreas Bergdahl, BMC F12, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Maria Leonsson Zachrisson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; growth hormone; pituitary deficiency; dietary fat; cholesterol; low density; lipoprotein; intima-media thickness; IL-6; CRP; TNF-á;

    Sammanfattning : Hypopituitary patients with growth hormone (GH) deficiency (GHD) have increasedmorbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease (CVD). GH treatment has both beneficialand potentially negative cardiovascular effects. LÄS MER
