  1. 1. On the induction and function of Foxp3+ regulatory T cells

    Author : Cecilia Oderup; Diabetes - immunovirologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunologi; serologi; transplantation; regulatory T cell; serology; Immunology; superantigen; costimulation; dendritic cell; Foxp3;

    Abstract : This thesis is based on three original papers with the overall aim to study the mechanisms of induction and function of Foxp3+CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells. Regulatory T cells induce down-modulation of costimulatory molecules CD80 and CD86 on dendritic cells in vitro. READ MORE

  2. 2. Regulatory CD4+FOXP3+ T cells in Helicobacter pylori-induced disease

    Author : Bert Kindlund; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Regulatory T cells; Helicobacter pylori; duodenal ulcer; gastric cancer; FOXP3;

    Abstract : Helicobacter pylori colonize the gastric or duodenal mucosa of approximately half of the worlds’ population. Although most individuals are asymptomatic, H. pylori infection cause peptic ulcers or gastric cancer in 10-15 % and 1-2 %, respectively, of the infected individuals. READ MORE

  3. 3. Posttransplant Lymphoproliferative Disorders : Studies of Epstein-Barr Virus, Regulatory T Cells and Tumor Origin

    Author : Amelie Kinch; Karlis Pauksens; Gunilla Enblad; Eva Baecklund; Harald Holte; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PTLD; Lymphoma; Epstein-Barr Virus; EBV DNAemia; FoxP3; Treg; Microenvironment; Cell of Origin; Recipient; Transplantation; Immunosuppression; Hepatitis C; Survival; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infects almost all humans and establishes lifelong latency in B cells. Posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is a rare but serious complication after transplantation triggered by immunosuppression and often related to EBV infection. READ MORE

  4. 4. Beta Cell Function: from Human Genetics to Animal Models

    Author : Martins Kalis; Diabetes - immunovirologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; animal model; Dicer1; genetics; genetic association; single nucleotide polymorphism; SNP; INS-1E; AAT; FOXP3; beta cell function; insulin secretion; FFAR1; insulin; T2D; glucose; T1D;

    Abstract : Beta cell function is an important factor in the development of both Type 1 (T1D) and Type 2 (T2D) diabetes mellitus. T1D is characterized by a primary defect in insulin secretion due to the immune-mediated beta cell destruction, however, the more common T2D beside insulin resistance also include impaired beta cell function as a consequence to abnormal glucose homeostasis.

  5. 5. Tolerance and Immunity: Opposite Outcomes of Microbial Antigen Stimulation

    Author : Lena Eroukhmanoff; Immunologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TLR2; Tolerance; quinoline-3-carboxamide; Anergy; Foxp3; iNOS; IFN-β; CD4 splenic DCs;

    Abstract : The immune system is remarkable in many ways. It exerts immunity to defend us from foreign pathogens, while it is also responsible for maintaining tolerance to avoid autoimmune diseases and allergy. This thesis includes three separate papers concerning both tolerance and immunity. READ MORE
