    Abstract : Mast cells (MCs), normally classified into connective tissue MCs and mucosal MCs, are highly granulated cells found in the interface between the interior and the exterior environment of our body, e.g. skin, airways and gastro-intestinal tract. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mast cells in Hodgkin lymphoma or 'What's a nice cell like you doing in a tumour like this?'

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : Mast cell (MC) accumulation around tumours is an old observation gaining new relevance due to the multifaceted nature of MCs and their many roles in immunity, beyond allergy. Knowledge about tumour specific recruitment of, and interactions with, MCs is needed to unravel the function of their presence. READ MORE

    Abstract : Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is characterised histologically by a minority of malignant Hodgkin and Reed-Sternberg (HRS) cells surrounded by benign cells, and clinically by a relatively good prognosis. The treatment, however, leads to a risk of serious side effects. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Inflammation är vävnadens svar på yttre störning och syftar till att eliminera främmade ämnen såsom bakterier men under vissa omständigheter initieras den inflammatoriska reaktionen av ofarliga substanser eller för starkt mot patogener och kan därmed orsaka vävnadsskada och är en underliggande mekanism vid många vanliga sjukdomar inkluderande allergier, blodförgiftning och inflammatorisk tarmsjukdom. Den viktigaste komponenten i den inflammatoriska reaktionen är vävnadsinfiltrationen av leukocyter. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mast cells: bad enemies or good friends? A study of the effects of IgG immune complexes on mast cell biology

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Lisa M Larsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mast cell; Fc receptor; Apoptosis; Immune complex; Adjuvant; CTA1-DD.;

    Abstract : Mast cells are classically defined as bad enemies to human health due to their critical involvement in IgE-dependent allergy by virtue of the expression of the high affinity IgE receptor, FcgammaRI, on these cells. However, mouse mast cells also express FcgammaRIIB and FcgammaRIIIA, two receptors that bind IgG especially in the form of IgG immune complexes. READ MORE
