  1. 1. Neruons; regulators of CNS inflammation

    Author : Yawei Liu; Neuroinflammation; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; transplantation; Immunologi; serology; Immunology; T cells; inflammation; neuron; CNS; EAE MS; serologi;

    Abstract : Neurons have been neglected as cells with major immune regulatory function. Here, we present novel data demonstrating that neurons are highly immune competent and play crucial role in regulation of T cell response and CNS inflammation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Regulation of CNS inflammation upon T cell interaction with CNS resident cells

    Author : Ingrid Teige; Immunologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurofysiologi; neuropsykologi; Neurologi; neurophysiology; neuron; glia; CNS; T cell; cytokine; immunoregulation; MS; EAE;

    Abstract : Multiple Sclerosis (MS), is a neurologic, autoimmune disease characterized by CNS immune cell infiltration and demyelination. To experimentally study MS, we have utilized the mouse model Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis (EAE). EAE is induced through immunization with myelin antigens, which elicits an autoreactive Th1 cell response. READ MORE

  3. 3. Astrocytes, reactive gliosis and CNS regeneration

    Author : Ulrika Wilhelmsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : CNS regeneration; astrocytes; reactive gliosis; intermediate filaments;

    Abstract : The regenerative capacity in the adult central nervous system (CNS) is very limited, and the glial cells have been implicated in the inhibition of CNS regeneration. In essentially all CNS pathologies, astrocytes are activated and this process is known as reactive gliosis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Early Rostrocaudal Patterning of the CNS

    Author : Ulrika Nordström; Thomas Edlund; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; CNS development; neural patterning; neural specification; Wnt; FGF; RA; Isthmic organizer; motor neurons; rostrocaudal patterning.; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi;

    Abstract : The transformation of an initially uniform population of epiblast cells into an intricately complex central nervous system (CNS) is one of the most fascinating processes during embryonic development. Presumptive neural cells are initially specified as cells of forebrain character. READ MORE

  5. 5. Astrocytes as Cellular Vehicles in Ex Vivo Gene Therapy Studies to the Rat Brain

    Author : Cecilia Ericson; CNS Genterapi; []

    Abstract : Neurodegenerative disorders are characterized by a progressive cell-death in the brain, and loss of different functions in the patient. Today, there are no cures for any of the various diseases. Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder with a prevalence of 0. READ MORE
