  1. 1. Pathophysiological importance of Beta1-Adrenergic receptor autoantibodies in the development of cardiomyopathy and heart failure. Clinically and experimentally

    Author : Lisa Buvall; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dilated Cardiomyopathy; Beta1 Adrenergic Receptor; Antibody; Cardiac; Function; Intravenous Immunoglobulin; Immunoadsorption; Cultured Cardiomyocytes; rat; mice; GRK2;

    Abstract : Idiopathic Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a heart muscle disease of unknown originthat is characterized by ventricular dilation and the impaired contraction of the left orboth ventricles, resulting in progressive heart failure and sudden cardiac death. Antibodiesagainst different cardiac proteins have been found in DCM; they include antibodiesagainst the 1-adrenergic receptor (1AR). READ MORE

  2. 2. On HIV-1 latency and viral reservoirs

    Author : Tomas Mellberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HIV-1; Latency; Intravenous immunoglobulin; residual viremia; low level viremia; Ultrasensitive PCR methods; Central nervous system;

    Abstract : HIV-1 establishes a latent infection that is inaccessible to treatment in cellular and anatomical reservoirs. This thesis concerns several problematic issues of HIV-1 persistence, including ways to measure and monitor both the virus at low viral concentrations and the depletion of the reservoir. READ MORE

  3. 3. Immune moldulatory effects of intravenous immunoglobulin in vitro and after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Sven Klaesson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; IVIG; IgG; F ab 2; Fc; immune modulation; T cell responses; Bcell responses; cytokines; bone marrow transplantation; infections; CMV; graft-versus-hostdisease;

    Abstract : Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) has been used in patients with immunodeficienciesand various autoimmune diseases. Its immune modulatory effect is well documented.In allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) IVIG has been used to reduce theincidence of infections and graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD).

  4. 4. Immunomodulation by intravenous immunoglobulin : the effect on cytokine production studied at the single-cell level

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Ulrika Skansén-Saphir; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Preparations of pooled human immunoglobulin for intravenous use (IVIg) have an established therapeutic role in immunodeficiencies, Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura and Kawasaki's disease and has been attempted in other immunologically mediated conditions including autoimmuntiy, malignancies, bone marrow transplantation and serious infections such as group A streptococcal toxic shock syndrome. The effects of IVIg on cytokine synthesis in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) was studied in vitro by applying a new immunohistochemical method for detection of cytokine production at a singlecell level.

  5. 5. Pathogenesis and immunotherapy of streptococcal septicemia and shock

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine at Huddinge University Hospital
