  1. 1. Eosinophils, their progenitors and T helper cells in allergic airway inflammation

    Author : You Lu; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; eosinophils; eosinophil progenitors; T helper cells; Th2 cells; IL-33; migration; Asthma;

    Abstract : Introduction: Asthma is a heterogeneous chronic lung disease associated with pronounced inflammatory changes in the airways. Eosinophilic inflammation is the trait that is best linked to symptoms and treatment responses in allergic asthma. READ MORE

  2. 2. Antibody Feedback Regulation From Epitope Masking to T Helper Cell Activation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Andrew Getahun; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; Immune regulation; B cells; T cells; Antibodies; Fc Receptors; Antigen presentation; Transgenic Knockout Mice; Immunologi; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Immunology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Immunologi;

    Abstract : Antibodies have the ability to influence the antibody response against the very antigen they are specific for, in a process called antibody feedback regulation. Depending on the nature of the antigen, the antibody response can be either enhanced or almost completely inhibited. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling T helper cell activation and development

    University dissertation from University of new South Wales

    Author : Andreas Jansson; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; T cells; mathematical models; differentiation; computer simulation; mathematical models; cellular signal transduction; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Other biology Bioinformatics; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Övrig biologi Bioinformatik; Natural sciences; Naturvetenskap; Technology; Teknik;

    Abstract : T helper (Th) cell activation and development is one of the most critical events in regulating the adaptive immune response. Understanding its regulation could be of great therapeutical value as many severe diseases are associated with failure in controlling T cell activation and development. READ MORE

  4. 4. THE ROLE OF DENDRITIC CELLS AND TYPE I INTERFERON IN THE GENERATION AND FUNCTION OF T FOLLICULAR HELPER CELLS

    University dissertation from Section for Immunology, Lund University

    Author : Helena Cucak; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; T follicular helper cells; Type I interferon; Dendritic cells;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Immunförsvaret har till uppgift att skydda kroppen mot främmande mikroorganismer såsom bakterier och virus. En rad olika celler, vävnader samt organ samarbetar för att utforma ett väl fungerande immunförsvar. READ MORE

  5. 5. Adoptive T Cell Therapy of Viral Infection and Cancer Ex vivo Expansion of Cytomegalovirus- and Prostate Antigen-specific T Cells

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Björn Carlsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; Immunotherapy; Adoptive T cell therapy; Dendritic cell; T cell; Tetramer; Cytomegalovirus; Transplantation; pp65; Prostate cancer; TARP; Prostate antigens; Immunologi; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Immunology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Immunologi;

    Abstract : The main focus of my thesis has been to develop protocols for generating antigen-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) and T helper cells (TH) for adoptive transfer to treat cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease and prostate cancer. CMV viremia is a severe complication in immunocompromised stem cell transplanted patients. READ MORE
