    Sammanfattning : The multidrug regimen, cyclosporine, corticosteroids, and azathioprine, is used in transplantation centres to prevent organ rejection. Several clinical studies have shown that cyclosporine and corticosteroids to cause increases in low density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol, with subsequent development of atherosclerosis. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Intestinal transport and hepatic extraction of fluvastatin in humans and rats

    Författare :Anders Lindahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmacy; FARMACI; PHARMACY; FARMACI; galenisk farmaci; Pharmaceutics;

    Sammanfattning : The oral route is the most convenient route of delivering drugs intended to have systemic effects. One of the key variables determining the rate and extent of absorption from the gastrointestinal tract is the intestinal permeability to the drug. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Intestinal permeability and presystemic metabolism of R/S-verapamil and fluvastatin

    Författare :Rikard Sandström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmacy; FARMACI; PHARMACY; FARMACI; Biopharmaceutics; biofarmaci;

    Sammanfattning : The rate and extent of absorption of drugs from the gastrointestinal tract into the systemiccirculation is defined as the bioavailability. The bioavailability is influenced by a numberof pharmaceutical, pharmacokinetic, biochemical and physiological factors. Two key-variables are the intestinal permeability and the presystemic metabolism. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Pleiotropic Effects of HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitors - studies in vitro and in vivo

    Författare :Cristine Skogastierna; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the prime cause of death in industrialized countries, resulting from the progression of atherosclerotic lesions. An increased level of plasma cholesterol, particularly within low-density lipoproteins, is a principle risk factor, but also elevated triglycerides and low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol.

  5. 5. Mechanisms and treatment options of chronic graft dysfunction : Experimental and clinical studies

    Författare :Lilija Zezina; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Medical sciences; chronic graft dysfunction; kidney transplantation; aorta transplantation; lipid oxidation; LDL; TGF-beta; Smad2; angiotensin II receptor; treatment; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Sammanfattning : Chronic graft dysfunction (CGD) is an important post-transplant complication. CGD can be considered as an impaired repair process, which ultimately leads to the loss of graft function.To study non-immunological factors contributing to the development of CGD in kidney grafts we used in vitro and in vivo models, and clinical studies.
