Pathogenesis of Heart and Liver Diseases in Acquired and Genetic Iron-overload Disorders Resveratrol as potential therapyDownload
Abnormal iron metabolism leads to cardiac and hepatic iron-overload disorders in an epidemic proportion. Irregular iron absorption results in iron deposition in different organs of the body including heart and liver. Iron-overload heart and liver diseases are commonly observed in patients with...
A Retrospective Study on Potential Organ Donation and Transplantation Opportunities in Alberta Emergency Rooms and Intensive Care UnitsDownload
Background: In patients with end stage organ failure, organ transplant is often the only life saving treatment. Unfortunately, worldwide, the number of organs needed for transplant far outnumber the number of organs available. This scarcity of organs has led to interest in methods of increasing...
A convergence of cultures and strategies to improve Electronic Health Record implementation within a Tanzanian clinical environmentDownload
This research explored the question: “How can we improve the implementation of an Electronic Health Record (EHR) within a Tanzanian clinical environment?” The objectives included working with local stakeholders to identify opportunities to improve, and exploring barriers and facilitators to...
These two studies investigate the immune responses of lung and kidney transplant recipients to the influenza vaccine. The study involving kidney transplant recipients developed a novel flow cytometry assay to measure cell-mediated immunity in response to influenza vaccination. The activation of...
Government and non-profit programs are under increasing pressure to demonstrate the value of their work. However, there are few structures in place to evaluate spending and outcomes in a way that is comparable between agencies and programs serving the same population. Using Parent Link Centres...
Clinical and Angiographic Outcomes Associated with Surgical Revascularization of Angiographically Borderline 50-69% Coronary Artery StenosesDownload
Objectives: Coronary artery bypass grafting improves outcomes in patients with multi-vessel coronary artery disease. Bypass of angiographically significant lesions ≥70% is recommended, yet little is known about the incidence/outcomes with bypasses of 50-69% angiographically borderline lesions...
Cardiovascular (CV) diseases (CVD) have been the leading cause of death globally for decades. Effective prevention, treatment and management programs are needed to attenuate the negative impact of CVDs. Despite the efforts to provide the required evidence for these programs, the majority of...
The effects of low altitude on isolated mammalian arteries, intact murine circulation, and as a therapy for myocardial infarction and hindlimb ischemia in miceDownload
Humans residing at low and moderate altitudes (500 m - 3000 m above sea level) have a lower risk of dying from many cardiovascular diseases in comparison to sea level residents [1-3]. We hypothesized the lowered barometric pressure at these altitudes enhances vasodilation in the systemic...
