  1. 1. The Role of Chlamydia pneumoniae-induced Platelet Activation in Cardiovascular Disease : In vitro and In vivo studies

    Författare :Hanna Kälvegren; Torbjörn Bengtsson; Arina Richter; Erik Kihlström; Kenneth Persson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chlamydia pneumoniae; Platelet; atherosclerosis; Infection; LDL-oxidation; Percutaneous coronary intervention; Cardiovascular disease; Serotonin; Reactive oxygen species production; Pharmacology; Farmakologi;

    Sammanfattning : The common risk factors for atherosclerosis, such as obesity, high cholesterol levels, sedentary lifestyle, diabetes and high alcohol intake, only explain approximately 50% of cardiovascular disease events. It is thereby important to identify new mechanisms that can stimulate the process of atherosclerosis. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Platelet transfusions in hematological disorders

    Författare :Cecilia Karlström; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Platelets are important for clot formation and vascular integrity. Thrombocytopenic patients with hematological disorders are at risk of bleeding and platelet transfusions are important in supportive care and treatment of lite-threatening bleedings. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Experimental Aspects of Topical Haemostatic Agents

    Författare :Katarina Björses; Vaskulära sjukdomar - kliniska studier; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; platelet stimulation; coagulation factors; experimental bleeding models; topical haemostatic agents;

    Sammanfattning : Control of haemorrhage is vital in all operative settings. As complement to traditional surgical haemostatic techniques, a heterogeneous collection of absorbable substances with haemostatic capacity have been developed; topical haemostatic agents. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Formation and Relevance of Platelet Subpopulations

    Författare :Anna Södergren; Sofia Ramström; Karin Öllinger; Riitta Lassila; Linköpings universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Platelets are important players in the hemostatic system, acting as guardians of vessel integrity. When they come across a breach in the vessel wall, they quickly adhere to the damaged surface, secrete activating and adhesive compounds from their secretory granules, recruit additional platelets into a growing platelet plug and support the action of the coagulation system.

  5. 5. The role of platelet thrombin receptors PAR1 and PAR4 in platelet activation

    Författare :Karin Vretenbrant Öberg; Tomas Lindahl; Sofia Ramström; Johan Heemskerk; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Platelets play a pivotal role in coagulation and haemostasis. Their most prominent task is to seal damaged blood vessels by the formation of a platelet plug at the damaged area. Once the injury is covered, platelets retract the coagulum to close the wound and allow the blood to flow freely in the vessel. LÄS MER
