  1. 1. Kinins : important regulators in inflammation induced bone resorption

    Author : Anna Bernhold Brechter; Ulf Lerner; Hans-Erik Claesson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Bone resorption; Osteoblasts; Kinins; B1 and B2 receptors; IL-1β; TNF-α; Prostaglandin; COX-2; RANKL; Transcription factors; IL-4; IL-13; Medical Cell Biology; medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Inflammatory processes in, or in close vicinity of, the skeleton often lead to loss of bone tissue. Different cytokines have been shown to be involved as stimulators of inflammatory induced osteoclastic bone resorption. READ MORE

  2. 2. Immunological mechanisms involved in seasonal pollen allergy and allergen-specific immunotherapy

    Author : Robert Movérare; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; Allergy; birch pollen; IFN-g; IgE; IgG; IgG4; IL-4; IL-5; IL-10; IL-13; immunotherapy; PBMC; rush immunotherapy; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; lungmedicin; Lung Medicine;

    Abstract : Th1/Th2-like T-cell responses were studied by stimulating peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) with allergens or antigens followed by restimulation with mitogens to induce high cytokine synthesis. Allergen-stimulation in vitro induced Th2-skewed cytokine synthesis by PBMCs from birch-pollen-allergic patients. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of Interleukin-4 and Interleukin-13 on Bone

    Author : Carl-Johan Silfverswärd; Olle Nilsson; Östen Ljunggren; Kenneth Jonsson; Li Felländer-Tsai; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medicine; Bone; Osteoblasts; Interleukin-4; Interleukin-13; Knockout; Medicin;

    Abstract : Cytokines play important roles in bone metabolism, participating in the complex interplay necessary for normal bone formation and turnover. The aim of the present thesis was to investigate the effects of two anti-inflammatory cytokines, interleukin-4 (IL-4) and interleukin-13 (IL-13) on bone. READ MORE

  5. 5. Osteotropic cytokines : expression in human gingival fibroblasts and effects on bone

    Author : Py Palmqvist; Andersson Göran; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : osteoblasts; osteoclasts; fibroblasts; cytokines; IL-6; LIF; OSM; IL-4; IL-3; bone resorption; odontologi; Odontology;

    Abstract : Bone metabolism is regulated by endocrine and paracrine signalling molecules influencing bone cells in the continuously remodelling bone tissue. These molecules include a variety of osteotropic stimulatory and inhibitory cytokines. READ MORE
