  1. 1. A role for NK cells in innate immunity against human leishmaniasis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)

    Author : Susanne Nylén; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Leishmania; NK cells; innate immune activation; IFNgamma; vaccine candidates;

    Abstract : Leishmaniasis is a group name for a spectrum of diseases caused by intracellular protozoa belonging to the family Leishmania. The parasites has been widely used as a tool to study the Th1 / Th2 paradigm of resistance and susceptibility in mice. A role of NK cells in leishmaniasis has been implicated, but not fully explored.

    Abstract : Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death worldwide and most often due to atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory process that involves the arteries, inclouding those that supply blood to the heart muscle. READ MORE

  3. 3. The role of natural killer cells and inflammatory mediators in preeclamptic pregnancies

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

    Author : Nora Bachmayer; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; preeclampsia; NK cells; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Immunology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Immunologi; Immunology; immunologi;

    Abstract : The maternal immune system must be able to adjust during pregnancy and accept the foetus that expresses paternal antigens. These changes are found both in placenta and circulation, including a mild inflammatory response. NK cells are abundant during the early part of pregnancy in placenta and are thought to be important for placental development. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the role of innate cell interactions in inflammation and leukemia

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

    Author : Rebecca E Riise; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Innate immunity; neutrophils; NK cells; caspase-1; apoptosis; myeloid leukemia; ROS; immunotherapy;

    Abstract : Inflammatory cells of the innate immune system launch rapid and powerful effector responses in the combat against infectious pathogens. However, these inflammatory mediators may cause excessive damage to the host and, therefore, require rigid control systems to maintain the delicate balance between prompt clearance of infections and the risk of developing immunopathology.

  5. 5. Approaches to analyses of cytotoxic cells. And studies of their role in H. pylori infection

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

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Helicobacter pylori; mucosal immunology; stomach; duodenum; asymptomatic; duodenal ulcer; gastric adenocarcinoma; NK cells; T cells; B cells; dendritic cells; cytotoxic;

    Abstract : Helicobacter pylori infection causes chronic gastritis that may progress to peptic ulcers or gastric adenocarcinoma and thereby cause major world-wide health problems. Previous studies have shown that CD4+ T cells and the production of the cytokine IFN- × are important components of the immune response to H. pylori in humans. READ MORE
