    Author : Pontus Hegardt; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi; IL-18; IFN-gamma; rat; colon carcinoma; glioma; tumor immunotherapy; immunosuppression; NO; iNOS;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Tumörimmunologisk grundkurs: En tumörcell har en gång i tiden varit en vanlig laglydig cell i någon av kroppens vävnader men på grund av arv eller dålig uppväxtmiljö så har denna cell upphört att följa de tillväxt begränsande regler som normala celler rättar sig efter. Förutom att kontrollen av celldelningen upphört så kan tumörcellen uppvisa ett mer eller mindre asocialt beteende. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mechanisms of leukemia-induced immunosuppression

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Johan Aurelius; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acute myeloid leukemia; Immunosuppression; Immunotherapy; Reactive oxygen species; PARP-1; NK cells; T cells;

    Abstract : This thesis aimed to define the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS), produced by the NADPH oxidase of myeloid cells, in the regulation of lymphocyte function with focus on ROS-induced dysfunction of natural killer (NK) cells and T lymphocytes in myeloid leukemia. In Paper I, a novel mechanism is presented by which specifically activated T lymphocytes evade inactivation by ROS after antigen presentation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Inflammation in Parkinson’s Disease and Experimental Neural Transplantation. Role of Cellular Responses, Cytokines and Immunosuppression in Graft Rejection

    University dissertation from Bilal Mirza, Section for Neuronal Survival, BMC-A10, SE-221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Bilal Mirza; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; graft rejection.; pig; human; rat; xenogeneic; allogeneic; syngeneic; transplantation immunology; immunosuppression; cytokines; neural transplantation; Parkinson’s Disease; inflammation; neurodegeneration; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Abstract: Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder. There is no proven protection, but many treatments can partially improve symptoms. The disease is caused by monogenetic mechanisms in very few cases, but for the majority of patients the etiology is unknown. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dynamics of Human Leukocyte Antigen-D Related expression in bacteremic sepsis

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Sara Cajander; Örebro universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; monocyte HLA-DR; sepsis; immunosuppression; bloodstream infection; HLA-DRA; CIITA; qRT-PCR;

    Abstract : Monocytic human leukocyte antigen-D related (mHLA-DR) expression determined by flow cytometry has been suggested as a biomarker of sepsisinduced immunosuppression.In order to facilitate use of HLA-DR in clinical practice, a quantitative real-time PCR technique measuring HLA-DR at the transcription level was developed and evalutated.

  5. 5. The cell line RN33B transplanted to adult retina

    University dissertation from Ophthalmology (Lund), Lund University

    Author : Anita Blixt Wojciechowski; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]

    Abstract : The thesis describes the neural precursor cell line RN33B transplanted subretinally to adult healthy and young dystrophic rat retina. The cell line is generated from E12,5 rat raphe nucleus and transduced with the temperature sensitive mutant of the Simian Virus 40 (SV40) large T-antigen. READ MORE
