  1. 1. T-cell regulation of immune responses to the Plasmodium falciparum antigen Pf155/RESA

    Author : Lalitha Kabilan; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Antigens; surface; immunology T-lymphocytes; Plasmodium falciparum;

    Abstract : Plasmodium falciparum is the cause of the most severe malaria inhumans. Due to the rapid resurgence of malaria in many parts of theworld extensive efforts have been made during the last few years todefine several P.falciparum antigens for inclusion in a vaccine. READ MORE

  2. 2. T cell Function in Patients with Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Author : Erika Lindberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : cardiomyopathy; lymphocytes; cytokines; autoimmunity; infection;

    Abstract : Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a heart muscle disease characterized by dilatation of one or both ventricles together with decreased systolic function. Its etiology is still largely unknown. READ MORE

  3. 3. Expansion of circulatory Vγ9Vδ2 T cells in tularemia and Pontiac fever, two intracellular bacterial diseases with widely different clinical expression

    Author : Michal Kroca; Dieter Kabelitz; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; Francisella tularensis; Gamma-delta T cell; Legionella; Legionellosis; Lymphocyte; T cell Tularemia; Immunologi; Immunology; Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Although well established that human Vγ9Vδ2 T cells may expand in circulation during intracellular bacterial infections, most underlying studies included only a few cases and only some diseases had been studied so far. In tularemia, a severe invasive disease, only one patient had been described. READ MORE

  4. 4. T cell dependent B lymphocyte activation, growth and maturation : the role of lymphokines

    Author : Sven Pettersson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TH cell activated B- cell growth maturation B-cell growth factor BSF-pI B-cel1 maturation factor s BMA neonatal B-cell prol iferation anti body secretion;

    Abstract : The present work concerns the regulation of B cell activation, growth and terminal differentiation of helper T cells.T cell dependent (TD) B cell activation requires physical cell to cell contact between competent helper T cells (TH) and B cells and the recognition of MHC Class II antigens.

  5. 5. Adoptive T Cell Therapy for Treatment of Metastatic Melanoma

    Author : Arian Sadeghi; Thomas Tötterman; Karl-Johan Malmberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Malignant melanoma; Adoptive cell therapy; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Malignant melanoma is a common type of solid tumor that causes high cancer-related mortality in young adults of Northern Europe. The incidence of melanoma increases rapidly which renders us a special responsibility to investigate this disease in depth. READ MORE
