    Abstract : Both Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) and nontypeable H. influenzae (NTHi) are important human pathogens causing invasive and mucosal infections. Currently there are number of vaccines available against Hib infections. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bactericidal/Permeability-Increasing Protein (BPI) and Proteinase 3: Studies at the Transcriptional Level

    University dissertation from Divison of Hematology and Transfusion Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Katrien Pieters; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; azurophil granules; myelopoiesis; BPI; mouse ortholog; proteinase 3; transcriptional regulation; Wegener s Granulomatosis WG ; SNP; Medicine human and vertebrates ; extracellulära vätskor; Hematologi; extracellular fluids; Haematology; Medicin människa och djur ;

    Abstract : In myelopoiesis, neutrophils and monocytes/macrophages are formed from a common myeloid precursor cell in the bone marow. During maturation of neutrophils, cytoplasmic granules are formed in the cells and the content of these granules is critical for the function of neutrophils in the first line of defense against invading microorganisms.

  4. 4. Transcriptional control of Bactericidal/permeability increasing protein (BPI) and cathepsin G in myeloid cells

    University dissertation from Divison of Hematology and Transfusion Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Andreas Lennartsson; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; extracellular fluids; Haematology; extracellulära vätskor; Hematologi;

    Abstract : The neutrophil store its effector proteins in several distinct types of cytoplasmic granules, developed sequentially during cell maturation. The different subtypes of granules have unique protein content and functional characteristics. The formation of each granule subtype coincides with the biosynthesis of its content. READ MORE

  5. 5. Complement aberrations and autoantibodies to complement proteins in relation to disease mechanisms

    University dissertation from Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Lillemor Melander Skattum; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; C3 nephritic factors; GM allotypes; C1q autoantibodies; serum bactericidal activity; Neisseria meningitidis; idiopathic sudden hearing loss; complement; Acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis;

    Abstract : The complement system, a part of the innate immune system with several links to the adaptive immune system, plays an important role in the pathogenesis of many diseases. The purpose of this thesis was to document and clarify some of these mechanisms. The thesis is based on four papers (I-IV). READ MORE
