  1. 1. Upper Airway Mucosal Inflammation : Proteomic Studies after Exposure to Irritants and Microbial Agents

    Author : Louise Fornander; Mats Lindahl; Bijar Ghafouri; Pål Graff; Magnus Svartengren; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : People are, in their daily lives, exposed to a number of airborne foreign compounds that do not normally affect the body. However, depending on the nature of these compounds, dose and duration of exposure, various airway symptoms may arise. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies on Airway Surface Liquid in Connection with Cystic Fibrosis

    Author : Inna Kozlova; Godfried Roomans; Anca Dragomir; Marieann Högman; Isabelle Sermet-Gaudelus; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cystic fibrosis; CFTR; airway surface liquid; ion content; anesthesia; mist tent therapy; Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection; Cell biology; Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Cystic fibrosis (CF) is one of the most common fatal inherited diseases, most prevalent among Caucasians. CF is caused by a mutation in the gene coding for the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), which helps to create sweat, digestive juices, and airway surface liquid (ASL).

  3. 3. Cell responses in infected and cystic fibrosis respiratory epithelium

    Author : Rashida Hussain; Godfried M . Roomans; Maria Björkqvist; Ferenc Karpati; Hans Kollberg; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; airway epithelial cells; cystic fibrosis; bacterial infection; CFTR; ENaC; chloride transport; intracellular calcium; P. aeruginosa internalization; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : Respiratory Epithelium. Örebro Studies in Medicine 99. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is caused by a mutation in a cAMP-activated chloride (Cl-) channel (CFTR). Mortality and morbidity in CF is mainly due to the deregulated responses of the airway epithelial cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pattern-recognition receptors in airway inflammation

    Author : Anna-Karin Ekman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Airway inflammation is a defining feature of allergic rhinitis and asthma. Bacterial and viral infections are known to cause exacerbations of both diseases, but knowledge about the mechanisms involved is limited. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pathogen colonisation, transmission and infection control measures in burn patients

    Author : Marie Lindblad; Fredrik Huss; Jyrki Vuola; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Whole-genome sequencing; Burn injury; Acinetobacter baumannii outbreak; infection control prevention; UVC decontamination;

    Abstract : Burn patients are susceptible to infections due to impaired natural defences when the epidermal barrier is damaged. Moreover, the trauma affects the patient's immune system through local and systemic inflammatory reactions. Adding to that, the need for intensive care treatment with multiple surgical interventions increases the risk of infection. READ MORE
