Sammanfattning : Background: Pro-inflammatory mediators have been implicated in processes that could be both beneficial and toxic to cells in the brain. On the one hand balanced levels of these mediators favour e.g. LÄS MER
2. The inflammatory and immunogenic properties of the receptor for advanced glycation end products and its ligand, high mobility group box chromosomal protein 1
Sammanfattning : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic inflammatory joint disease, the pathogenesis of which is complex, involving a wide range of molecules. High mobility group box chromosomal protein 1 (HMGB1) is a nuclear protein recently recognised as a pro-inflammatory cytokine which levels are increased in RA patients. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Pre-gestational diabetes increases the risk of congenital malformation in the offspring and both morbidity and mortality in the diabetic mother and her offspring. During pregnancy, high glucose levels act as a teratogen through several cellular and biochemical pathways and increased production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) has a central role in diabetic embryopathy.

4. Psoriasin For Better or for Worse in Sickness and in Health : The Role of Psoriasin in Angiogenesis and Differentation of Epithelial Cells
Sammanfattning : Psoriasin (S100A7), a member of the S100 family of calcium-binding proteins, is highly expressed in high-grade ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and in the benign hyper-proliferative skin disorder psoriasis. Both breast cancer and psoriasis are diseases which are characterized by hyperproliferation and a disturbed differentiation of the epithelial cells as well as a pronounced angiogenesis. LÄS MER
