  1. 1. Particle Transcytosis Across the Human Intestinal Epithelium Model Development and Target Identification for Improved Drug Delivery

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elisabet Gullberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutics; M-cell; FAE; Peyer´s patches; oral vaccination; uptake; endocytosis; Galenisk farmaci; PHARMACY Pharmaceutics; FARMACI Galenisk farmaci;

    Abstract : The use of nano- and micro-particulate carriers as delivery systems for oral vaccines has been under investigation for several decades. Surprisingly little is known of their uptake in the human intestine, despite the fact that substantial improvement is required to achieve adequate immune responses in man after oral administration.

    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

  3. 3. Barrier function of the Follicle-Associated Epithelium in Stress and Crohn's disease

    University dissertation from Institutionen för biomedicin och kirurgi

    Author : Åsa Keita; Johan D. Söderholm; Ann-Charlott Ericson; Björn Weström; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Corticotropin-releasing hormone; Crohn’s disease; 51Cr- EDTA; Escherichia coli; follicle-associated epithelium; horseradish peroxidase; human; ileum; inflammatory bowel disease; intestinal mucosa; mast cell; M cell; permeability; Peyer’s patches; rat; Ussing chamber; vasoactive intestinal peptide; villus epithelium; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Crohns sjukdom är en kronisk inflammatorisk tarmsjukdom av okänd orsak. Det tidigaste tecknet på Crohns sjukdom är mikroskopiska sår i det s.k. follikelassocierade epitelet (FAE) som täcker ansamlingar av immunceller i tarmen. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bacterial epithelial interaction in intestinal inflammation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Lina Yakymenko Alkaissi; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The intestine is constantly exposed to bacteria, invading viruses and ingested food. The intestinal barrier serves as a gate preventing passage of harmful components, and at the same time maintaining absorption of nutrients and water. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards Classification and Functional Description of Enzymes: A case study of feruloyl esterases

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Gupta Udatha; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; descriptors; enzyme immobilization; catalytic triad; pharmacophore; enzyme promiscuity; functional classification; molecular docking; feruloyl esterases; protein evolution; structure-function relationship;

    Abstract : The prediction of enzyme functionality from sequence or structure data remains a challenging task that can be best addressed by studying the structure-function relationships determined from previously available information. This thesis work was focused on developing a reliable classification and functional description for the feruloyl esterase (FAE) enzyme family, whose members’ possess both structural and catalytic promiscuity.
