  1. 1. Uterus transplantation: An experimental study in primates

    Author : Liza Johannesson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; infertility; transplantation; nonhuman primates; uterus; human; immunosuppression;

    Abstract : Most causes of infertility are nowadays treatable, but for women that are infertile due to lack of, or severe malfunction of the uterus, there is as of today no available cure. Uterus transplantation (UTx) may provide a future possibility for treatment of these females with uterine factor infertility (UFI). READ MORE

  2. 2. Preparatory Studies to Introduce Regulatory T Cells in Clinical Transplantation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : David Berglund; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Transplantation; Tolerance; Cell therapy; Regulatory T cell; In vivo imaging; Cell purification;

    Abstract : Solid organ transplantation has evolved from being an experimental procedure to a life-saving treatment for patients with end-stage organ failure. The risk of losing a transplant due to acute rejection is very low with the use of modern immunosuppressive protocols and the short-term results are impressive. READ MORE

  3. 3. Posttransplant Lymphoproliferative Disorders Studies of Epstein-Barr Virus, Regulatory T Cells and Tumor Origin

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Amelie Kinch; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PTLD; Lymphoma; Epstein-Barr Virus; EBV DNAemia; FoxP3; Treg; Microenvironment; Cell of Origin; Recipient; Transplantation; Immunosuppression; Hepatitis C; Survival; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infects almost all humans and establishes lifelong latency in B cells. Posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is a rare but serious complication after transplantation triggered by immunosuppression and often related to EBV infection. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies of Acute Rejection Using Contrast Agents and Magnetic Resonance Imaging

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eva Penno; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Radiology; Magnetic resonance imaging; contrast agents; organ transplantation; acute rejection; Radiologisk forskning;

    Abstract : Solid organ transplantation is today an established form of treatment for end-stage organ disease. Monitoring of graft function and pharmacological therapy constitutes a maze of clinical observations and histological evaluations of biopsy specimens; with the biopsy results playing a decisive role.

  5. 5. Potentially Malignant Disorders and Oral cancer -A study on Immunosurveillance

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jenny Öhman; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oral lichen planus; Leukoplakia; Oral cancer; Immunosurveillance; Solid organ transplantation; T cells; Langerhans cells;

    Abstract : ABSTRACT The cancer immunosurveillance hypothesis postulates that the immune system can recognize cancer cell precursors and destroy those cells before a clinical manifestation occurs. During the last decades several groups have presented evidence of the influence and role of immune activation in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) patients; however, much less is known about the role of immune activation in potentially malignant oral disorders (PMOD).
