  1. 1. Monocytes, Tissue Factor and Heparin-coated Surfaces Clinical and Experimental Studies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Matilda Johnell; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; monocytes; tissue factor; heparin-coated surfaces; coagulation; inflammation; thrombin; cytokines; cardiopulmonary bypass; biocompatibility; migration; chemotaxis; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is associated with inflammatory response and activation of coagulation. Heparin coating of the CPB circuit is shown to improve the biocompatibility of the surface. The biological effects of a new heparin surface, the Corline Heparin Surface (CHS), prepared according to a new principle, have been studied. READ MORE

  2. 2. Monocytes and macrophages, with a focus of Crohn's disease

    University dissertation from Gastroenterology, Dept of Clinical Sciences, Malmö, Lund University

    Author : Susanne Thiesen; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Crohn s disease; Cystatin C; Cytokines; Intestine; Macrophages; Monocytes; Gene-expression;

    Abstract : Monocytes and macrophages are part of the body’s first line of defense, eliminating pathogens by phagocytosis or by releasing a broad array of inflammatory mediators, such as cytokines, chemokines and proteases. In humans, three subsets of monocytes are described with seemingly different functions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Microbial and maternal influences on allergic sensitization during childhood: defining a role for monocytes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Shanie Saghafian Hedengren; Stockholms universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Monocytes; allergic sensitization; maternal allergy; Toll-like receptor; p38-MAPK; IL-6; Epstein-Barr virus; early-life microbial exposure; NK cells; IFN-γ; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Immunology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Allergic diseases are influenced by genetics and the environment. Maternal allergy appears to confer a higher risk for allergic sensitization than paternal allergy, suggesting an in utero influence. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies of prostaglandin E2 formationin human monocytes

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstad University

    Author : Sofia Karlsson; Karlstads universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; prostaglandin E2; arachidonic acid; phospholipase A2; cyclooxygenase; prostaglandin E synthase; human monocytes; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Medical cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi Medicinsk cellbiologi; Biomedical Sciences; Biomedicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : Prostaglandin (PG) E2 is an eicosanoid derived from the polyunsaturated twenty carbon fatty acid arachidonic acid (AA). PGE2 has physiological as well as pathophysiological functions and is known to be a key mediator of inflammatory responses. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the regulation and effects of chronic inflammation in inflammatory bowel disease

    University dissertation from Olof Grip, Department of Medicine, Malmö University Hospital, 205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Olof Grip; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gastroenterologi; statins; monocytes; eosinophils; dysplasia; thrombosis; ulcerative colitis; Crohn s disease; inflammation; inflammatory bowel disease; Gastro-enterology;

    Abstract : Inflammatory bowel disease is thought to result from the inappropriate and ongoing activation of the mucosal immune system driven by the presence of normal luminal flora. In this process monocytes/macrophages contribute to and maintain chronic inflammation by being both regulatory and effector cells. READ MORE
