  1. 1. Aspects of pertussis, pertussis vaccination and adverse events associated with aluminum adsorbed vaccines

    Author : Elisabet Bergfors; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Pertussis; parapertussis; pertussis toxoid; vaccine; vaccination; vaccine trial; adjuvant; aluminium; adsorbed vaccines; adverse event; pruritic nodules; itching nodules; granuloma; sensitisation; hypersensitivity; contact allergy;

    Abstract : The thesis originates in a clinical study of one of the new acellular pertussis vaccines performed in Göteborg in the 1990s. The monocomponent vaccine, pertussis toxoid adsorbed to aluminium hydroxide, had previously been shown to have an efficacy of 71%. READ MORE

  2. 2. Delayed hypersensitivity reaction reflected as accumulation of mononuclear cells, mast cells and mucus producing cells in the mouse lung

    Author : Ingrid Enander; Uppsala universitet; []

  3. 3. Infant feeding and allergy in children

    Author : Inger Kull; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Allergy; asthma; BAMSE; breastfeeding; children; diet; eczema; fish; food hypersensitivity; prevention; rhinitis; sensitisation; vitamin D;

    Abstract : Despite intensive research, the knowledge on causes behind the increase in allergic diseases among children is incomplete. Altered environmental exposures and changes in lifestyle have been hypothesised to play a role, including dietary intake. READ MORE

  4. 4. Light microscopic assessment of the dermal inflammatory cell infiltrate in experimental inflammatory reactions

    Author : Florence Sjögren; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : In vivo experimental models have been used traditionally for the study of inflammatory contact reactions in the skin. The naked eye appearance and the histology of the skin reaction is in principle similar to that seen in man. READ MORE

  5. 5. Xenograft Rejection : A Study of Cytokine mRNA Expression in Experimental Models

    Author : Henrik Krook; Anthony Dorling; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; Type 1 diabetes; Parkinson’s disease; xenotransplantation; islets; neural tissue; heart; mRNA; cytokines; rejection.; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi; Clinical Immunology; klinisk immunologi;

    Abstract : Acute cellular xenograft rejection of ICCs triggered mRNA expression of proinflammatory cytokines (IL-1b and TNF-a), Th1 associated cytokines (IL-12p40, IL-2 and IFN-g) and Th2 associated cytokines (IL-4 and IL-10). The peak values and the kinetics of the mRNA expression indicated that acute cellular xenograft rejection is enhanced by the proinflammatory response and mediated by the Th1 associated response, whereas the function of the Th2 associated response most likely is to counteract the Th1 associated cytokines and thereby inhibit bystander damage by the delayed type hypersensitivity like rejection process.
