  2. 2. Cytokines and Neutrophils in the Urinary Tract Mucosa

    University dissertation from Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Glycobiology, Lund University

    Author : Long Hang; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; neutrophils; chemokines; urinary tract infection; mucosa; epithelial cells; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi;

    Abstract : This study investigated the urinary tract cytokine reponse to infection and the role of chemokines for neutrophil recruitment to the urinary tract. The results suggest that 1) IL-8 and TGFb are consitutively produced by uroepithelial cells in vivo, and that uroepithelial cells are stimulated to produce IL-1b and IL-6 by uropathogenic Escherichia coli.

  3. 3. Qualitative and Quantitative Assessment of Cytochromes P450 mRNA in Human Studies in the Liver, Blood and Gastrointestinal Mucosa

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mari Thörn; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; cytochrome P450; CYP1A2; CYP1B1; CYP2E1; CYP3A4; CYP3A5; P-gp; gene expression; RT-PCR; liver; blood; gastrointestinal mucosa; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Drugs and other foreign compounds must often be metabolised before they can be excreted from the body. One enzyme system that is responsible for this is the cytochrome P450 gene family (CYP). READ MORE

  4. 4. Intestinal barrier function in health and disease

    University dissertation from Department of Animal Physiology, Lund University

    Author : Pernilla Nejdfors; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; VIP.; PACAP; secretion; ion transport; urine reservoir; radiation therapy; ulcerative colitis; macromolecules; dextran; mannitol; Ussing chamber; Intestinal permeability; mucosa; Animal physiology; Djurfysiologi; Physiology; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : The intestinal epithelium has the dual function of absorbing nutrients and water as well as being a barrier to potentially harmful substances such as macromolecules and bacteria. In the present thesis the barrier function of the intestinal mucosa was studied in vitro in Ussing diffusion chambers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Inflammatory Reactions in Peritonitis and Malignant Obstructive Jaundice Clinical and Experimental Studies with Special Emphasis on the Cellular Immune Response

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johanna Österberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; CLP; sepsis; peritonitis; bacterial translocation; malignant obstructive jaundice; Linomide; COX inhibitor; SC-236; indometacin; T lymphocyte; macrophage; mucosa; MLN; gut immune cell distribution; mucosal injury; cytokines; TNF-α; IL-6; IL-10; endotoxin; caspase-3; apoptosis; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Patients with peritonitis or malignant obstructive jaundice (HPB+) have an increased morbidity and mortality due to sepsis. An altered cell-mediated immunity in the intestinal mucosa might promote gut barrier failure, increased endotoxin and cytokine release and bacterial translocation (BT) in these conditions. READ MORE
