    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : David S. Hurst; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Allergy; atopy; eosinophil cationic protein; IL-5; tryptase; otitis media with effusion; in vitro testing; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Otitis media with effusion (OME) is the major form of chronic relapsing inflammatory disease of the middle ear, constitutes the most common diagnosis for children under 15 years old and is the major cause of auditory dysfunction in pre-school children. OME is a disease more commonly found in allergic children. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cutting Edge – Cleavage Specificity and Biochemical Characterization of Mast Cell Serine Proteases

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ulrika Karlson; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biology; mast cell; serine protease; tryptase; chymase; substrate specificity; phage display; Biologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; molekylär immunologi; Molecular Immunology;

    Abstract : It is well established that mast cells (MC) are key players in airway pathologies such as allergic asthma, but they are also known to contribute to host defense and tissue remodeling. MC serine proteases are the major protein components of mast cell granules and accordingly, are most likely involved in many aspects of MC function. READ MORE
