  1. 1. Chemoattractants as causative agents, biomarkers and therapeutic targets in vascular pathology

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine

    Author : Yuri Sheikine; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atherosclerosis; coronary artery disease; restenosis; chemokines; eicosanoids;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis and restenosis are driven by chronic immune response in the vascular wall. This involves cell migration into and within the vessel wall, cell proliferation as well as accumulation of lipids in the vessel wall. These processes are mediated, among other substances, by molecules belonging to a large family of chemoattractants. READ MORE

    Abstract : H. THORLACIUS The aim of the present thesis was to study functional interactions between histamine and chemotacticmediators, and the role of histamine for leukocyte recruitment in mast cell-dependent inflammation. Leukocyterolling, adhesion and emigration. READ MORE

  3. 3. Leukocyte rolling and firm adhesion in the microvasculature : functional significance for leukocyte recruitment in inflammation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Xun Xie; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adhesion molecules; blood flow; chemoattractants; endothelium; flowcytometry; fucoidin; heparin; inflammation; integrins; intravital microscopy; leukocyteadhesion; leukocyte extravasation; leukocyte rolling; meningitis; mesentery; microcirculation; ;

    Abstract : Leukocyte recruitment to tissues is a key component in the inflammatory process.In order for circulating leukocytes to extravasate, they need to interact with vascularendothelium in several sequential steps. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mast Cell Migration in Inflammatory Diseases

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Niclas Olsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pathology; Mast cells; chemotaxis; inflammation; Patologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Pathology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Patologi;

    Abstract : Mast cells (MCs) are forceful multifunctional effector cells of the immune system. MCs are normally distributed throughout connective and mucosal tissues, but in several pathological conditions accumulation of MCs occur. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pro- and anti-inflammatory regulation of β2 integrin signalling in human neutrophils

    University dissertation from Linköping : Institutionen för biomedicin och kirurgi

    Author : Veronika Brodin Patcha; Eva Särndahl; Emmanuelle Caron; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; inflammation; neutrophils; signalling; integrins; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Cell biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : The body is under constant attack from pathogens trying to slip by our immune defence. If the barrier is breached, invading pathogens enter the tissues and cause inflammation. During this process neutrophils, constituting the first line of defence, leave the bloodstream and seek out and kill the invading pathogens. READ MORE
