  1. 1. Monoclonal antibodies to human interferon-α and interferon-γ : Characterization and application with focus on interferon-γ as a T cell cytokine

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Gudrun Andersson; [1992]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : The major functions of the immune system are to combat infections and to control that normal auto-immunity does not turn into auto-aggression. Antibodies, together with T cell receptors and MHC molecules, dictates the immunological specificity. READ MORE

  2. 2. Immunological characteristics of a C-terminal fragment of the Plasmodium falciparum blood-stage antigen Pf332

    Abstract : Till date, there are no effective control strategies against the deadly disease of malaria, and millions of children across Africa, Oceania, Asia, and Latin America are at the mercy of this long term enemy of man every second that passes by. Other control measures combined with vaccination might help improve control strategy against malaria, but the development of vaccines face various challenges as well, due to the complexity of the parasites’ life cycle and other host factors.

  3. 3. B cell deviations and type 1 diabetes in the NOD mouse

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Mia Sundström; Kristina Lejon; Susanna Cardell; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Type 1 diabetes; Autoimmunity; NOD mouse; Idd; TACI; Immune response; Immune complex; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a chronic autoimmune disease in which the insulin producing β-cells in the pancreatic islets of Langerhans are selectively attacked by the immune system. The β-cells are destroyed resulting in a reduced or eliminated insulin production, which in turn lead to a high blood glucose level. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental radioimmunotherapy and effector mechanisms

    University dissertation from Umeå : Klinisk mikrobiologi

    Author : David Eriksson; Torgny Stigbrand; Eva Forsell-Aronsson; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; radioimmunotherapy; apoptosis; mitotic catastrophe; caspases; cell cycle disturbances; combination treatment.; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Immunology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Immunologi;

    Abstract : Radioimmunotherapy is becoming important as a new therapeutic strategy for treatment of tumour diseases. Lately monoclonal antibodies tagged with radionuclides have demonstrated encouraging results in treatment of hematological malignancies. The progress in treatment of solid tumours using radioimmunotherapy, however, has been slow. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cytokine responses in metal-induced allergic contact dermatitis Relationship to in vivo responses and implication for in vitro diagnosis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Jacob Minang; Marita Troye-Blomberg; Niklas Ahlborg; Rik Scheper; [2005]

    Abstract : Transition metals such as nickel (Ni), cobalt (Co), palladium (Pd), chromium (Cr) and gold (Au) are widely used as alloys in jewelry and biomaterials such as orthodontic and orthopaedic appliances. These metals also cause cell-mediated allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) reactions in a significant proportion of the population upon prolonged direct exposure. READ MORE
