  1. 1. Macrophages : As central inflammatory mediators and as targets for therapeutic interventions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Åsa Andersson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Macrophages; HMGB1; IL-23; MS; EAE; autoimmunity.;

    Abstract : Macrophages (Mphis) are important cellular players in autoimmune pathogenesis, being the most numerous cells infiltrating sites of inflammation and causing much of the associated tissue damage. Apart from these proinflammatory actions, Mphis also have distinct roles in disease resolution, and effective therapeutic targeting of Mphi-expressed molecules requires understanding of the interplay between different Mphi activators and the kinetics of the induced responses.

  2. 2. B cell repertoire development in normal physiology and autoimmune disease

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Åsa Andersson; Umeå universitet.; [1993]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; B cell repertoire; connectivity; natural antibodies; non-obese diabetic NOD ; Ig therapy; Vh7183 gene family;

    Abstract : The B cell repertoire in the neonatal immune system (IS) is characterised by reactivity towards self-components, including other immunoglobulin (Ig) V-regions. These properties have been suggested to be a requirement for the development of a normal immune system. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of an Environment-Accident Index A planning tool to protect the environment in case of a chemical spill

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Åsa Scott Andersson; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Environmental chemistry; Environment-Accident Index; Chemical Accidents; environmental effects; questionnaire; expert judgements; statistical multivariate design; PCA; PLS; Miljökemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi;

    Abstract : The increasing mass and complexity of chemicals being produced and transported has resulted in more rigorous demands on both authorities as well as chemical-handling industries to assess the risks involved. The Environment-Accident Index (EAI), has been proposed as a planning tool created as an equation in which chemical properties (variables describing the chemical involved) are combined with site-specific properties (variables describing the accident site).
