  4. 4. Dendritic cells in cancer immunotherapy

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    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.

  5. 5. Novel immunization strategies and interethnic differences in response to malaria infection

    University dissertation from Stockholm : The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Charles Arama; Stockholms universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Malaria; Immunization; Ethnic groups; vaccines; Immunology; immunologi;

    Abstract : A better understanding of the role of antigen-presenting cells (APCs) in host resistance to malaria is essential to unravel the complex interactions between the host and the parasite. This would improve the design of malaria vaccines. READ MORE
