  1. 21. Immune mechanisms in atherosclerosis : the role of T cells in murine models of atherosclerosis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine

    Author : Xinghua Zhou; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atherosclerosis; inflammation; murine models; low density lipoprotein; lipoprotein oxidation; T lymphocyte; T-cell antigen receptors; hypercholesterolemia; autoantibodies; T-cell cytokines; immunization; cardiolipin;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease. Much interest has been focused on the immune responses in the pathogenesis of the disease. The role of T cells in the development of atherosclerosis was therefore investigated in murine models in this study. READ MORE

  2. 22. Chemokines and Integrins in Lymphocyte Development and Localization

    University dissertation from Jan Marsal, Section fo Immunology, BMC I-13, 22184 Lund ([email protected])

    Author : Jan Marsal; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunologi; serologi; transplantation; serology; Immunology; homing; development; IEL; lymphocytes; chemokines; integrins;

    Abstract : The small intestine contains a large number of T lymphocytes within the single-layered epithelium that separates the gut lumen from the lamina propria. These intraepithelial T lymphocytes have potent cytolytic and immunoregulatory capacities, thought to be important for fighting infections, neoplastic growth, and sustaining epithelial integrity.

  3. 23. Regulatory T cells : molecular and clinical aspects

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Author : Malin E. Winerdal; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : In the immune system’s tug of war with cancer, tolerance mechanisms by which the tumor can control anti-tumor immune responses play a central role in determining the outcome. Regulatory T cells (Treg) induced in the thymus or the periphery, represent one such tolerance mechanism that potentially can be exploited by developing tumors. READ MORE

  4. 24. HIV-1 infection in Tanzania : HIV antibody testing strategies and lymphocyte subset determinations

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

    Author : Willy Shileanga Kikoka Urassa; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HIV; antibody detection; alternative confirmatory strategy; lymphocyte subsets; Tanzania; Africa.;

    Abstract : The objectives of the studies that are reported in this thesis were to evaluate HIV antibody testing strategies and prognostic markers and to study inummological deterioration of HIV-1 infected individuals. Alternative testing strategies for confirmation of HIV seropositivity were evaluated using combinations of screening assays. READ MORE

  5. 25. HIV-1 and HIV-2 infections in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa : studies of immune responses, prevailing viruses and epidemiological trends

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

    Author : Sören Andersson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HIV-1; HIV-2; dual infection; immune response; antibody assay; PCR; evaluation; testing strategies; genetic subtypes; molecular characterization; plasma RNA levels; incidence; prevalence; vaccines; cell-mediated immunity; CTL; lymphocyte proliferation; chemokines; Guinea-Bissau; Africa;

    Abstract : This thesis encompasses immunological, virological and epidemiological studies of HIV-1 and HIV-2 infections in Guinea-Bissau. We have established a robust and reliable diagnostic strategy based on a combination of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) and rapid simple tests. READ MORE
