  1. 1. Effects of Enterovirus Infection on Innate Immunity and Beta Cell Function in Human Islets of Langerhans

    Author : Oskar Skog; Gun Frisk; Olle Korsgren; Åke Lernmark; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 1 diabetes; Enterovirus; Coxsackievirus; Innate immunity; Pancreatic islets; Islet function; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on enteroviral effects on human pancreatic islets. Most knowledge of viral effects on host cells relies on studies of immortalized cell lines or animal models. The islets represent a fundamentally different and less well studied cellular host. Also, enterovirus has been implicated in the etiology of type 1 diabetes (T1D). READ MORE

  2. 2. Characterization of the Pancreas in Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes

    Abstract : Diabetes is recognized by hyperglycaemia and polyuria. Complications, reduced quality of life and staggering health-care costs are all derived from the disease. Two subclasses of diabetes are Type 1 diabetes (T1D) and Type 2 diabetes (T2D). READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies of the Pancreas: Implications for Type 1 Diabetes Aetiology

    Author : Peter Seiron; Oskar Skog; Michele Solimena; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a disease of severe insulin deficiency through loss of β cells in the endocrine pancreas. The T1D dogma maintains that a precipitating event unleashes autoimmunity in at-risk individuals, often measured through autoantibodies against β cell antigens. READ MORE

  4. 4. Transcriptional and morphological analysis of organ donor pancreata

    Author : Anton Stenwall; Oskar Skog; Lena Eliasson; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : The diabetes disease panorama affects more than 400 million people world wide – a number projected to rise above 640 million in the next 20 years. Type 1 and type 2 diabetes are associated with adverse complications, resulting in severe morbidity and high healthcare costs exerting substantial strain on society. READ MORE

  5. 5. Immunopathology of the Pancreas in Type 1 Diabetes

    Author : Anna Wiberg; Olle Korsgren; Oskar Skog; Åke Lernmark; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Type 1 diabetes (T1D) results from a loss of functional insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells. The etiology of T1D is poorly understood, but the detection of infiltrating inflammatory cells in the pancreas and circulating autoantibodies has led to the common notion that an autoimmune process plays a central role in the pathogenesis of the disease.
