  2. 2. Antibodies for better or worse or Antibody variability in an egg-laying mammal and a novel strategy in the treatment of allergies

    Author : Jeannette Johansson; Kjell-Olov Grönvik; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; Antibody; variability; platypus; allergy; vaccine; adjuvant; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Molecular Immunology; molekylär immunologi;

    Abstract : Antibodies are a central part of the immune defense system, and a large variability in their specificity is needed in order to be able to react against all possible foreign substances we may encounter during our lives. In this thesis, results are presented from investigations into how an egg-laying mammal, the Australian duck-billed platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) creates antibody variability. READ MORE

  3. 3. More or Less IgE : Therapeutic Vaccines, Adjuvants and Genes and Their Effect on IgE Levels

    Abstract : Immunoglobulin E (IgE) is an important mediator in atopic allergies. This thesis describes the development of a therapeutic vaccine against IgE and its effects in rats and dogs. The development of an assay to determine IgE levels in dogs, and the finding of a chromosome region in rats that affects IgE levels are also reported. READ MORE

  4. 4. Starch Microparticles as an Oral Vaccine Adjuvant with Emphasis on the Differentiation of the Immune Response
