Sammanfattning : Resident skin micro-organisms such as S. epidermidis and other coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS), are by far the most common causes of biomaterial-associated infections. These micro-organisms often exhibit surface adhesins that specifically bind serum and tissue proteins adsorbed to implanted biomaterials. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Mortality from cardiovascular disease in patients on chronic hemodialysis (HD) is 10 to 20 times greater than in the general population. One major risk factor is renal dyslipidemia, characterised by an impaired catabolism of triglyceride (TG)-rich lipoproteins with accumulation of atherogenic remnant particles. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The present thesis addresses various means of reducing inflammatory responses associated with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and retransfusion of pericardial suction blood (PSB) during cardiac surgery. Four (I-IV) prospective randomised controlled clinical trials comprising 475 patients were performed in the following areas: effects of heparin coating on measures of clinical outcome and memory function (I, II), inflammatory reactions in PSB and its systemic effects after retransfusion using cardiotomy suction or cell salvage (III) and effects of retransfusion of PSB on memory function and release patterns of protein S100B (IV).

Sammanfattning : Heparin and heparan sulphate (HS) are structurally related polysaccharides of the glycosaminoglycan type. As the glycan moiety of proteoglycans, they exist covalently linked to various core proteins. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Heparin and heparan sulphate (HS) are structurally related polysaccharides influencing various biological processes. The biological functions of heparin/HS largely depend on interactions between the negatively charged polysaccharide chains and a variety of proteins. LÄS MER
