  1. 1. Endogenous Type I Interferon Inducers in Systemic Autoimmune Diseases

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tanja Lövgren; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Medicine; Systemic lupus erythematosus; Sjögren s syndrome; type I interferon; plasmacytoid dendritic cell; natural interferon-producing cell; immune complex; RNP; Ro SSA; La SSB; Medicin;

    Abstract : Patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have elevated levels of interferon (IFN)-α in blood and IFN-α-producing cells in tissues. In the present thesis, we investigate the mechanisms behind the upregulated IFN-α-production in SLE and also show that the IFN-α system is activated in primary Sjögren’s syndrome (pSS), with IFN-α-producing cells in the major affected organ, the salivary glands.

  2. 2. Autoantibodies and the Type I Interferon System in the Etiopathogenesis of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    University dissertation from Uppsala University Library

    Author : Stina Blomberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; Systemic lupus erythematosus; type I interferon; interferon inducer; dendritic cell; natural interferon-alpha producing cell; immune complex; SSA Ro; dsDNA; BDCA; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : In sera remitted for anti-nuclear antibody (ANA) analysis, the supplement of a sensitive anti-SSA/Ro ELISA to the conventional ANA screening by immunofluorescence (IF) revealed that one fourth of the individuals with IF-ANA negative, but SSA/Ro ELISA positive sera, had systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) or cutaneous LE. Consequently, adding a sensitive anti-SSA/Ro ELISA to the ANA screening is valuable for the serological detection of ANA negative SLE/LE patients. READ MORE

  3. 3. Induction and functional role of type I interferon in bacterial infection of macrophages

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Elin Movert; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; macrophage; Streptococcal M proteins; Mycobacterium marinum; Type I interferon; Infection;

    Abstract : Infection represents an evolutionary arms race between pathogen and host. Thus, scientists find that pathogenic microbes have evolved elegant strategies to manipulate or avoid our immune system, allowing them to persist within the human population. READ MORE

  4. 4. Large-Scale Genotyping for Analysis of the Type I Interferon System in Autoimmune Diseases

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Snaevar Sigurdsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Molecular medicine; Minisequencing; SNP; Microarray; Polymorphism; Mitochondria; Systemic Lupus Erythematosus; Rheumatoid Arthritis; Association study; Type I interferon; Genotyping; Molekylärmedicin;

    Abstract : Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the most common form of genetic variation. We developed a novel multiplexed method for SNP genotyping based on four-color fluorophore tag-microarray minisequencing. This method allows simultaneous genotyping of 80 samples and up to 200 SNPs in any allele combination. READ MORE

    Abstract : Diabetes is recognized by hyperglycaemia and polyuria. Complications, reduced quality of life and staggering health-care costs are all derived from the disease. Two subclasses of diabetes are Type 1 diabetes (T1D) and Type 2 diabetes (T2D). READ MORE
