  1. 1. Maternal immune characteristics and innate immune responses in the child in relation to allergic disease

    Author : Petra Amoudruz; Eva Sverremark-Ekström; Zsolt Szépfalusi; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Immunology; Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : The mechanistic factors responsible for the increase in allergic diseases are still not fully understood, but a reduced microbial stimulation seems to be one of the key issues. Research is now aiming at investigating the relationship between the innate immune system, involving the toll-like receptors, and allergy development. READ MORE

  2. 2. The role of natural killer cells and inflammatory mediators in preeclamptic pregnancies

    Author : Nora Bachmayer; Eva Sverremark-Ekström; Katarina Bremme; Lucia Mincheva-Nilsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; preeclampsia; NK cells; Immunology; Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : The maternal immune system must be able to adjust during pregnancy and accept the foetus that expresses paternal antigens. These changes are found both in placenta and circulation, including a mild inflammatory response. NK cells are abundant during the early part of pregnancy in placenta and are thought to be important for placental development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Immune maturation and lymphocyte characteristics in relation to early gut bacteria exposure

    Author : Sophia Björkander; Eva Sverremark Ekström; Hanne Frøkiær; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Allergy; cell-free supernatant; chemokines; colonization; cytokines; FOXP3; immune-maturation; lactobacilli; lymphocytes; NK-cells; Staphylococcus aureus; unconventional T-cells; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : At birth, the immune system is immature and the gut microbiota influences immune maturation. Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and lactobacilli are part of the neonatal gut microbiota and have seemingly opposite effects on the immune system. S. READ MORE

  4. 4. Local Immune regulation in human pregnancy : with focus on decidual macrophages

    Author : Charlotte Gustafsson Lidström; Christina Ekerfelt; Eva Sverremark-Ekström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reproduction; placenta; leukocyte; ELISPOT; Clinical immunology; Klinisk immunologi;

    Abstract : During pregnancy, the woman carries a fetus partly foreign to her immune system, because of the expression of paternal antigens. Despite this, the fetus is normally tolerated and not rejected, as is often the case with organs in allogeneic transplantations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lactobacilli- and Staphylococcus aureus mediated modulation of immune responses in vitro

    Author : Yeneneh Haileselassie; Eva Sverremark-Ekström; Huub Savelkoul; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lactobacilli; staphylococcus aureus; dendritic cells; retinoic acid; epithelial cells; T cells; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : The human gut harbors a vast number of microbes. These microbes are not passive bystanders. They are important in modulating the immune system. We have previously shown that early colonization with lactobacilli and Staphylococcus (S. READ MORE
