    • The alternative complement pathway is dysregulated in patients with chronic heart failure 

      Shahini, Negar; Michelsen, Annika; Nilsson, Per; Ekholt, Karin; Gullestad, Lars; Broch, Kaspar; Dahl, Christen Peder; Aukrust, Pål; Ueland, Thor; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Yndestad, Arne; Louwe, Maria Cornelia (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The complement system, an important arm of the innate immune system, is activated in heart failure (HF). We hypothesized that HF patients are characterized by an imbalance of alternative amplification loop components; ...

      Hovland, Anders; Jonasson, Lena; Garred, Peter; Yndestad, Arne; Aukrust, Pål; Lappegård, Knut Tore; Espevik, Terje; Mollnes, Tom Eirik (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
      Despite recent medical advances, atherosclerosis is a global burden accounting for numerous deaths and hospital admissions. Immune-mediated inflammation is a major component of the atherosclerotic process, but earlier ...
    • Wnt5a is associated with right ventricular dysfunction and adverse outcome in dilated cardiomyopathy 

      Abraityte, Judita Aurelija; Lunde, Ida Gjervold; Askevold, Erik Tandberg; Michelsen, Annika; Christensen, Geir Arve; Aukrust, Pål; Yndestad, Arne; Fiane, Arnt E; Andreassen, Arne K.; Aakhus, Svend; Dahl, Christen Peder; Gullestad, Lars; Broch, Kaspar; Ueland, Thor (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The Wingless (Wnt) pathway has been implicated in the pathogenesis of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). To explore the role of Wnt modulators Wnt5a and sFRP3 in DCM patients we analyzed the expression of Wnt5a and sFRP3 in ...
