  1. 1. Cytokines and immune balance in preeclampsia : a survey of some immunological variables and methods in the study of preeclampsia

    Author : Yvonne Jonsson; Christina Ekerfelt; Göran Berg; Leif Matthiesen; Lucia Mincheva-Nilsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Preeclampsia; Cytokines; Leukocytes; Immunology; Placenta; Th1 Th2 balance; Inflammation; Immunobiology; Immunbiologi;

    Abstract : Preeclampsia is one of the most feared pregnancy complications, with a risk of maternal and fetal death and with no ideal therapy readily available. The cause of this strictly pregnancyrelated disease is still unknown and is therefore a great challenge to all researchers in the field of pregnancy-related pathophysiology. READ MORE

  2. 2. Immunopathogenesis of schistosomiasis mansoni : Immunity and pathology in a primary and a secondary infection following chemotherapy in the mouse and the baboo models

    Author : Idle Omar Farah; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology and anatomy; Baboon; BALB c mice; Chemotherapy; Cytokines; Fibrosis; Granuloma; Modulation; Pathology; Reinfection; Schistosoma mansoni; Th1; Th2; Fysiologi och anatomi; Physiology and pharmacology; Fysiologi och farmakologi; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : This thesis describes a series of experiments aimed at elucidating the mechanisms ofimmunity and pathology elicited by both a primary infection and a reinfection exposure toSchistosoma mansoni following chemotherapy. The effects of a single large cercarial doseand a cumulatively equivalent dose, administered as multiple small doses are compared. READ MORE

  3. 3. Immune modulation in serous epithelial ovarian cancer : focus on the role of tumor-derived exosomes

    Author : Alireza Labani Motlagh; Lucia Mincheva-Nilsson; Ola Winqvist; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ovarian cancer; EOC; HGSC; exosomes; NKG2D; MICA B; ULBP; DNAM-1; PVR; nectin-2; lncRNAs; immune suppression; anti-tumor immunity; NK-cell cytotoxicity; cytokines; Th1; Th2; T regulatory response; inflammation; tumor microenvironment;

    Abstract : Serous epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is a potent suppressor of the immune defense. Here, we studied interactions between EOC and the immune system that lead to escape from tumor immune surveillance. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cytokines and their soluble receptors in nasal fluids from school children with allergic rhinitis

    Author : Mikael Benson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Allergic rhinitis; school children; cytokines; soluble cytokine receptors; nasal fluids;

    Abstract : Allergic inflammation is associated with a shift in the balance between cytokines produced by two T helper subsets (Th1 and Th2) towards a preponderance of Th2 cells. Interleukin (IL)-4 is produced by Th2 cells and interferon-g (IFN-g) by Th1 cells. The ratio IL-4/IFN-g is often used as a marker of the balance between the cytokines. READ MORE

  5. 5. Helicobacter pylori infection in a mouse model: Development, optimization and inhibitory effects of antioxidants

    Author : Xin Wang; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; virology; bacteriology; Microbiology; mice; Helicobacter pylori; gastritis; lymphoma; antioxidant; diet; Th1 and Th2; cytokines; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Helicobacter pylori is a human pathogen strongly associated with chronic type B gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, gastric cancer and MALT lymphoma. Our aims were to establish a mouse model of H. pylori infection, to study pathogenesis of gastritis and gastric cancer and to investigate new treatment strategies in this model. READ MORE
