  1. 1. Chemokines and Integrins in Lymphocyte Development and Localization

    University dissertation from Jan Marsal, Section fo Immunology, BMC I-13, 22184 Lund ([email protected])

    Author : Jan Marsal; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunologi; serologi; transplantation; serology; Immunology; homing; development; IEL; lymphocytes; chemokines; integrins;

    Abstract : The small intestine contains a large number of T lymphocytes within the single-layered epithelium that separates the gut lumen from the lamina propria. These intraepithelial T lymphocytes have potent cytolytic and immunoregulatory capacities, thought to be important for fighting infections, neoplastic growth, and sustaining epithelial integrity.

    Abstract : Background. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease that, without powerful treatment, may lead to irreversible joint damage. During the past decade, anti-cytokine therapy has become available, e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. On CXC Chemokines in Endotoxin-Induced Liver Injury

    University dissertation from Lidbergs grafiska AB, Skurup

    Author : Xiang Li; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ortopedi; traumatologi; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; Surgery; patologisk anatomi; Patologi allmän ; pathological anatomy; General pathology; intravital microscopy; liver damage; Adhesion; CXC chemokines;

    Abstract : Leukocyte recruitment is a rate-limiting step in endotoxemic liver injury. Leukocyte extravasation is a multistep process, supported by multiple combinations of adhesion molecules and chemokine receptors. This thesis examined the mechanisms of activation, adhesion and extravascular infiltration of leukocytes in endotoxin-induced liver injury. READ MORE
