  1. 1. Identifying critical components for system reliability in power transmission systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Johan Setréus; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transmission system reliability; component reliability importance index; Great Britain power system; power flow analysis; system adequacy; system security; system vulnerability;

    Abstract : Large interruptions of power supply in the transmission system have considerable impact on modern society. The goal for the transmission system operator (TSO) is to prevent and mitigate such events with optimal decisions in design, planning, operation and maintenance. READ MORE

  2. 2. The complement system in stherosclerosis and arthritis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Linda Persson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; complement; C3; factor B; ASP; atherosclerosis; hyperlipidemia; arthritis;

    Abstract : The complement system plays an essential role in the humoral immune response. Activated complement has diverse functions, including the initiation of inflammation, recruitment of leukocytes, clearance of immune complexes, neutralization of pathogens, regulation of antibody responses and disruption of cell membranes.

  3. 3. Crosstalk Between Activated Platelets and the Complement System

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : Several studies have shown that complement and thrombotic events co-exist. Platelets have been suspected to act as the bridge between the two cascade systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Synaptic elimination and the complement system in Alzhaimer's disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jonny Daborg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Synapse; Alzheimer s disease; Genetics; CSF; Complement; RAGE;

    Abstract : The mechanisms behind Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are largely unknown. The disease is to a large extent hereditary, and the best pathophysiological correlate to the severity of the symptoms is loss of synapses. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Role of IgM and Complement in Antibody Responses

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Christian Rutemark; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Complement; antibody response; mutated IgM; natural IgM; complement receptors; SIGN-R1; SAP; CRP; B cells; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : An intact complement system including the complement receptors 1 and 2 (CR1/2) is crucial for the generation of a normal antibody response in animals and humans. Moreover, activation of the classical pathway is thought to be important since deficiency in complement components C1q, C2, C4 or C3 lead to impaired antibody responses. READ MORE
