    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TNF-alpha; TNFR1; TNFR2; muscle damage; myositis; peritendinous tissue; tendinopathy;

    Abstract : Painful conditions having the origin within the musculoskeletal system is a common cause for people to seek medical care. Between 20-40% of all visits to the primal care in Sweden are coupled to pain from the musculoskeletal system. Muscle pain and impaired muscle function can be caused by muscles being repetitively overused and/or via heavy load. READ MORE

    Abstract : The redox state in the cell plays a major role in determining vital functions and its major imbalance can lead to severe cell injury or death. Redox active proteins and cytokines involved in this process includes thioredoxin (Trx), protein disulfide isomerase (PDI), and tumor necrosis factor (TNF) superfamilies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Organic dust-induced signaling in human pulmonary epithelial cells : Emphasis on effects of cAMP modulation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Institute of Enviromental Medicine

    Author : Karin Burvall; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : To study signaling transductions in innate immunity a model system was applied where A549 alveolar epithelial type II cells were used as target and organic dust collected in swine confinement buildings as stimulus. The dust represents a complex mixture of feed and faecal particles, dander from swine, bacteria (whole bacteria and cell wall components) and fungi. READ MORE
