Doctoral thesis

Carlström M.  Development of salt-sensitive hypertension in hydronephrosis.  Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis; Digital Comprehensive Summaries of Uppsala Dissertations from the Faculty of Medicine, 324; 2008 (ISBN 978-91-554-7137-8)

Research description

Emerging evidence suggests that renal oxidative stress and nitric oxide (NO) deficiency is linked to cardiovascular disease and diabetic complications. Mechanisms are not clear, but exaggerated NADPH oxidase-derived superoxide production and NO deficiency may impair renal autoregulation. Using a translational design, our projects aim to characterize the mechanisms for superoxide and NO formation, interaction and influence on renal, cardiovascular and metabolic functions in health and disease.
