Autonomous and endothelial function in patients with hypercholesterolemia undergoing lipid apheresis

Principal investigator:
T. Ziemssen / U. Julius
Aim: This study aims to investigate the impact of lipid apheresis on endothelial and autonomous function in patients with dyslipidemia.

Impact of obesity und insulin resistance on neurocardiovascular function

Principal investigator:
T. Ziemssen / M. Reimann
Aim: The project aims to investigate the sequence of changes in neuroendocrine, autonomous nervous and vascular systems during the development of metabolic disturbances.

Effect of stress on neurocardiovascular and neuroendocrine function

Principal investigator: T. Ziemssen / M. Reimann
Aim: The objective is to investigate the impact of acute and chronic stress on neuroendocrine and autonomous-vascular function in subjects with obesity and/or depression. Synergies and divergences of the two diseases with regard to stress-related changes in neuroendocrine and autonomous-vascular systems shall be defined.

Sympathetic activity and Ambulatory Blood Pressure in Africans (SABPA) (cooperative project)

Principal investigator:
Dr. Leoné Malan, North-West University, Potchefstroom campus, South Africa
Aim: The purpose of this study is to investigate the psychophysiological interaction of coping styles with sympathetic activity markers (cardiovascular, inflammatory and stress hormone) indices in black as well as in white urbanised Africans.

Comparison of different techniques for measuring human endothelial function in vivo

Principal investigator:
T. Ziemssen / N. Weiss
Aim: This project aims to compare and optimise methods for the non-invasive assessment of endothelial function in humans.
