  1. 1. Dendritic cells in cancer immunotherapy

    Author : Karin Gustafsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; vaccines; dendritic cells; αDC1; PGE2DC; natural killer cells; T cells;

    Abstract : Dendritic cells (DCs) play a central role in the initiation and regulation of innate and adaptive immune responses and have increasingly been applied as vaccines for cancer patients. Ex vivo generation and antigen loading of monocyte-derived DCs allows a controlled maturation, with the aim of imprinting different DC functions that are essential for their subsequent induction of a T cell-mediated anti-tumor response.

  2. 2. Approaches to analyses of cytotoxic cells. And studies of their role in H. pylori infection

    Author : Josef Azem; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Helicobacter pylori; mucosal immunology; stomach; duodenum; asymptomatic; duodenal ulcer; gastric adenocarcinoma; NK cells; T cells; B cells; dendritic cells; cytotoxic;

    Abstract : Helicobacter pylori infection causes chronic gastritis that may progress to peptic ulcers or gastric adenocarcinoma and thereby cause major world-wide health problems. Previous studies have shown that CD4+ T cells and the production of the cytokine IFN- × are important components of the immune response to H. pylori in humans. READ MORE

  3. 3. The ontogeny and function of intestinal dendritic cells

    University dissertation from Mucosal Immunology, EMV, Lund University

    Author : Emma Persson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mesenteric lymph nodes; Intestine; Dendritic cells; Gut-homing; Th17 cells; Oral tolerance; Immunity;

    Abstract : The intestinal mucosa presents a huge surface area to the external environment and the intestinal immune system is continually exposed to a wide array of foreign antigens derived from resident intestinal microbiota as well as dietary constituents, including food proteins. In order to maintain intestinal homeostasis, the intestinal immune system relies on the ability to generate tolerogenic responses to innocuous antigen while maintaining the ability to develop effective immune responses to intesinal pathogens.

  4. 4. Endocytosis by human dendritic cells

    University dissertation from Malmö University, Faculty of Health and Society

    Author : Linda Andersson; Malmö University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Medicine; human dendritic cells; endocytosis;

    Abstract : Dendritic cells (DCs) are specialized antigen-presenting cells with the ability to internalize antigen, and present antigen-derived peptides to T cells. The functions of DCs depend on the subset, as well as their location and activation state. READ MORE

  5. 5. Trafficking of Human Dendritic Cells and B cells in Helicobacter pylori-induced Gastritis

    University dissertation from Malmö University, Faculty of Health and Society

    Author : Malin Hansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Helicobacter pylori; migration; homing; dendritic cells; B cells; gastric mucosa;

    Abstract : Infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori is widespread throughout the world, and is associated with development of gastric and duodenal ulcer disease as well as gastric adenocarcinoma and mucosa associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma. The infection generally leads to a large infiltration of immune cells, among them dendrite cells (DC) and IgA-secreting cells. READ MORE
