  1. 1. Effects of Complement Opsonization of HIV on Dendritic Cells and Implications for the Immune Response

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Rada Ellegård; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; HIV; dendritic cells; complement; innate immune response; TLR signaling; T cell activation; NK cells; inflammation; antiviral response; immune evasion;

    Abstract : Dendritic cells are key players during HIV pathogenesis, and shape both the immediate immune response at the site of infection as well as directing the adaptive immune response against the virus. HIV has developed a plethora of immune evasion mechanisms that hijack dendritic cell functions, suppressing their ability to mount an accurate immune response and exploiting them for efficient viral transfer to target T cells.

    Abstract : Circulating immune complexes play an important role in the modulation of antibody responses and in the pathogenesis of immune diseases. This thesis deals with the in vivo regulatory properties of antibodies and their specific Fc receptors. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Immune Response to One-Lung Ventilation Clinical and Experimental Studies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Thomas Schilling; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; One-lung ventilation; open thoracic surgery; ventilation-induced lung injury; alveolar immune response; bronchoalveolar lavage; propofol; desflurane; cytokines; animal model; mRNA; RT-PCR; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Caring sciences Medical laboratory science; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Vårdvetenskap Medicinsk laboratorievetenskap; anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology;

    Abstract : One-lung ventilation (OLV) as an established procedure during thoracic surgery may be injurious in terms of increased mechanical stress characterised by alveolar cell stretch and overdistension, increased cyclic tidal recruitment of alveolar units, compression of alveolar vessels and increased pulmonary vascular resistance. This may result in ventilation-induced lung injury with pro-inflammatory cytokine production, leukocyte recruitment and neutrophil-dependent tissue destruction. READ MORE
