  1. 1. Regulatory properties of dendritic cells and B cells in adaptive immunity

    University dissertation from Bengt Johansson-Lindbom, Dept. of Immunotechnology, Sölvegatan 33A, 223 62 Lund

    Author : Bengt Johansson Lindbom; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi; Immunology; Cellular differentiation; Cytokines; Dendritic cells; B lymphocytes; T lymphocytes;

    Abstract : This thesis is based upon four original papers in which human dendritic cells (DCs) and B cells have been analyzed in terms of how they influence the character of adaptive immune responses. DCs isolated from human tonsils were found to possess a capacity to directly regulate proliferation, isotype switching, and antibody production in B cells. READ MORE

  2. 2. The role of Malassezia in the pathogenesis of atopic eczema/dermatitis syndrome

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine

    Author : Catharina Johansson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atopic dermatitis; atopic eczema dermatitis syndrome; Malassezia; Pityrosporum; T-cells; PBMC proliferation; cytokines; ELISPOT; TCRVB; IgE; skin prick test; atopy patch test;

    Abstract : Atopic eczema/dermatitis syndrome (AEDS) is a chronically relapsing skin disease, which is often associated with elevated levels of serum lgE. The immunopathology of AEDS is at present unclear, but it is known that lymphocytes infiltrating the AEDS lesions are predominantly of the CD4+ T helper phenotype. READ MORE

  3. 3. Regulation of inducible nitric oxide synthase - Consequences in experimental models of bladder disease

    University dissertation from Rebecka Johansson, Department of Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology, Lund University Hospital, SE-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Rebecka Johansson; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pharmacy; toxicology; Farmakologi; smooth muscle-myosin heavy chain; Pharmacological sciences; pharmacognosy; farmakognosi; farmaci; actin; BDNF; Rho; aminoguanidine; TNF-alpha; IL-1beta; hypertrophy; differentiation; smooth muscle; bladder; nitric oxide; inducible nitric oxide synthase; toxikologi;

    Abstract : Inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) expression is associated with various pathophysiological conditions in the lower urinary tract. The aims of this thesis have been to investigate the regulation of iNOS in bladder smooth muscle cells and the consequences on neuromuscular regulation, cell growth and differentiation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Barley- and Legume Products Beneficially Affect Metabolic Responses and Appetite Regulation

    University dissertation from Department of Food Technology, Engineering and Nutrition, Lund University

    Author : Elin Johansson; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The role of dietary fibre (DF) in disease prevention has been extensively investigated and prospective studies observed that increased DF intake decreased the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), reduced the risk of weight gain as well as the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D). Also a diet characterized by low glycaemic index (GI) has been shown to reduce the risk of T2D and CVD. READ MORE

  5. 5. Activation of CO2 by Palladium Complexes Bearing Tridentate PCP Ligands

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Roger Johansson; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Metallorganisk kemi; Organometallic chemistry; Kinetics; Insertion reactions; PCP ligands; CO2 activation; Palladium II complexes;

    Abstract : The present thesis deals with the activation of CO2 by insertion reactions into palladium-carbon bonds. This has been realised for the complexes {2,6-bis[(di-t-butylphosphino)methyl]benzene}palladium(II)methyl [(PCP)PdMe] and (PCP)PdCH2CHCH2. These complexes have also been used in the catalytic carboxylation of ZnMe2 and Bu3SnCH2CHCH2. READ MORE
