  1. 1. Glucocorticosteroid effects on cytokine production: studies in a glucocorticosteroid resistance model and in allergic airway disease

    Author : Susanne Larsson; allergologi och palliativ medicin Lungmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; GM-CSF; cytokine; glucocorticoids; budesonide; IL-2; IL-4; IL-12; asthma; allergic rhinitis; allergic airway inflammation; Respiratory system; Andningsorganen;

    Abstract : Glucocorticosteroids (GCS) are potent anti-inflammatory drugs, probably due to inhibitory effects on cytokine production. However, a small number of asthma patients seem GCS-resistant. Pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin-2(IL-2) and IL-4, produced during allergic airway inflammation have been proposed to induce the resistance to GCS. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) : detection and elimination of infected blood cells in vitro, immune reactivity and complications following HCMV infection

    Author : Susanne Larsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) belongs to the herpes virus family and establishes life-long persistence in a latent state following a primary infection. HCMV disease causes high morbidity in immunosuppressed individuals, such as bone marrow and organ transplant patients. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sexual Relationships between Athletes and Coaches : Love, Sexual Consent, and Abuse

    Author : Susanne Johansson; Håkan Larsson; Carolina Lundqvist; Kari Fasting; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; coach-athlete sexual relationship; sexual harassment and abuse; romantic love; sexual consent; gender and sexuality; power and agency; sport; Samhällsvetenskap Humaniora; Social Sciences Humanities;

    Abstract : Coach-athlete sexual relationships (CASR) and sexual harassment and abuse (SHA) in sport can profoundly impact athletes’ welfare and performance. Yet, it is often ignored due to sensitivity, secrecy, and lack of knowledge. There is no previous research on SHA in sport in Sweden, and legal, consensual, same-sex CASR is under-researched.

  4. 4. Advancing evidence-based practice in primary care physiotherapy : Guideline implementation, clinical practice, and patient preferences

    Author : Susanne Bernhardsson; Birgitta Öberg; Maria Larsson; Kajsa Johansson; Per Nilsen; Philip van der Wees; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Research on physiotherapy treatment interventions has increased dramatically in the past 25 years and it is a challenge to transfer research findings into clinical practice, so that patients benefit from effective treatment. Development of clinical practice guidelines is a potentially useful strategy to implement research evidence into practice. READ MORE

  5. 5. Animal genomics – gene discovery and gene characterization

    Abstract : This thesis involves two projects. The aim in the first project was to identify genomic regions associated with spontaneous autoimmune thyroiditis (SAT), which is a hereditary autoimmune disease that affects the obese strain (OS) of chicken, an animal model for human Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT).
