  1. 1. Heat shock proteins as vaccine adjuvants

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Khaleda Rahman Qazi; Stockholms universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heat shock protein; vaccine; adjuvant; BCG; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Immunology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Immunologi;

    Abstract : New efficient vaccines against infectious diseases are in demand. Some important factors impeding the vaccine development are the poor immunogenicity and the MHC restriction of the immune responses to a number of antigens. READ MORE

  2. 2. DNA vaccines and bacterial DNA in immunity

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)

    Author : Lisa Charlotta Bandholtz; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; DNA vaccine; CpG DNA; antimicrobial peptides C. pneumoniae; Shigella spp;

    Abstract : This thesis describes DNA-based vaccination and the importance of bacterial DNA in different immunological perspectives. Intranasal (i.n.) DNA vaccination utilizing a plasmid encoding the chlamydial heat shock protein 60 (p-hsp-60) generated lower bacterial burden and reduced pathology in the lungs of mice after subsequent infection with C.

    Abstract : Over the past decade, the development of macromolecular drugs based on peptides, proteins and nucleic acids has increased the interest in microparticulate drug delivery, i.e., the delivery of drug systems in the nanometer and micrometer ranges. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development of a Cancer Vaccine Targeting Tumor Blood Vessels

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elisabeth J. M Huijbers; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vaccine; Therapeutic; Cancer; Tumor; Angiogenesis; Immunization; Vascular; Extracellular matrix; Biomedicinsk laboratorievetenskap; Biomedical Laboratory Science; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi; Oncology; Onkologi; Medical Science; Medicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : A treatment strategy for cancer is the suppression of tumor growth by directing an immune response to the tumor vessels, which will destroy the tissue.In this thesis we describe the development of a vaccine that targets antigens expressed around angiogenic vasculature in most solid tumors.

  5. 5. Studies in DNA immunization

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)

    Author : Cecilia Svanholm; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chlamydia pneumoniae; DNA vaccine; GM-CSF; HIV-1; hsp60; Nef; Rev; Tat; signal sequence;

    Abstract : This thesis describes investigations and developments of DNA immunization techniques, which were applied in the study of two different pathogens; HIV-1 and Chlamydia pneumoniae. DNA vaccines, i.e. naked plasmid DNA encoding an antigen, represent a novel strategy for generating protective immunity against several infectious diseases. READ MORE
