Journal Article
Asunción-Alvarez, D., Palacios, J., Ybañez-Julca, R. O., Rodriguez-Silva, C. N., Nwokocha, C., Cifuentes, F., & Greensmith, D. J. (2024). Calcium signaling in endothelial and vascular smooth muscle cells: sex differences and the influence of estrogens and androgens. American journal of physiology. Heart and circulatory physiology, 326(4), H950-H970. https://doi.org/10.1152/ajpheart.00600.2023

Calcium signaling in vascular endothelial cells (ECs) and smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) is essential for the regulation of vascular tone. However, the changes to intracellular Ca2+ concentrations are often influenced by sex differences. Furthermore, a...

The Role of lnterleukin-8 In lschemic Heart Disease and Oxidative Stress (2023)
Thesis
Ioannidi, A. (2023). The Role of lnterleukin-8 In lschemic Heart Disease and Oxidative Stress. (Thesis). University of Salford

Ischemic heart disease also known as coronary heart disease remains a primary cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide (Nowbar et al., 2019). Several mechanisms are involved in the development of the condition, such as chronic inflammation and the... Read More about The Role of lnterleukin-8 In lschemic Heart Disease and Oxidative Stress.

The effects of anthracyclines on calcium handling and contractility in sheep ventricular myocytes; role of oxidative stress (2023)
Thesis
Foster, A. (2023). The effects of anthracyclines on calcium handling and contractility in sheep ventricular myocytes; role of oxidative stress. (Thesis). University of Salford

Anthracyclines such as doxorubicin (DOX) and daunorubicin (DAUN) are effective chemotherapeutics and contribute to improved cancer survival rates in children and adults. However, anthracyclines exhibit acute and chronic cardiotoxicity which can produ...
