Sammanfattning : The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) family is a group of proteins which contributes to both neovascularisation and inflammation. Elevated levels of VEGF have been found in subjects with atherosclerosis and correlate to several cardiovascular risk factors, e.g. hypertension and hyperlipidemia. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Free radicals are produced in various organs at ischaemia-reperfusion. The final stage in radical damage is lipid peroxidation. We have demonstrated previously that a lipid-soluble antioxidant improves restoration of bioenergetics in rabbit kidneys after ischaemia, as reflected in 31P spectrometry. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Cardiovascular (CV) atherosclerotic diseases are the leading cause of death in Western nations. The presence of a carotid plaque, the degree of carotid stenosis as well as the rate of progression of carotid disease has been shown to be independent predictive factors for future ischemic events.

Sammanfattning : Atherosclerosis, the major cause of death and disability in western countries, is nowadays recognized as an inflammatory disease. Low density lipoprotein (LDL), the major carrier of cholesterol in plasma, is trapped in the subendothelial space, where compounds inside of LDL are chemically modified through lipid peroxidation.

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
