  1. 1. B- and T- cell responses in colectomized and healthy individuals after mucosal vaccination

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Jan Kilhamn; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intestinal immunity; antibodies; interferon gamma production; ileostomy fluid; enteric vaccines; mucosal vaccination;

    Abstract : The overall aims were to study the induction of intestinal and systemic B- and T-cell immune responses in patients colectomized due to ulcerative colitis and in healthy volunteers after mucosal administration of enteric vaccines. An inactivated B-subunit whole-cell (B-WC) cholera vaccine and a live attenuated Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi Ty21a vaccine were used as model immunogens. READ MORE

  2. 2. Vaccination against cholera and ETEC diarrhea and interventions to improve vaccine immune responses

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vibrio cholerae; ETEC; oral vaccine; CS6; CFA I; Lewis blood group; zinc; breast feeding; T cell; B cell;

    Abstract : Vaccination against cholera and ETEC diarrhea and interventions to improve vaccine immune responses Abstract Vibrio cholerae O1 and enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) together account for the majority of bacterial causes of acute dehydrating diarrhea in children in Bangladesh. Vaccines should be considered as an important public health tool for prevention of these diarrheal diseases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Particle Transcytosis Across the Human Intestinal Epithelium Model Development and Target Identification for Improved Drug Delivery

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elisabet Gullberg; Per Artursson; Barry Hirst; [2005]

    Abstract : The use of nano- and micro-particulate carriers as delivery systems for oral vaccines has been under investigation for several decades. Surprisingly little is known of their uptake in the human intestine, despite the fact that substantial improvement is required to achieve adequate immune responses in man after oral administration.

  4. 4. Human intestinal epithelial cells in innate immunity interactions with normal microbiota and pathogenic bacteria

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Gangwei Ou; Sten Hammarström; Marie-Louise Hammarström; Agnes Wold; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Rod-shaped bacteria were previously shown to be associated with the small intestinal epithelium of children with celiac disease (CD). Using culture-dependent and independent methods, we characterized the microbiota of small intestine in children with CD and controls. The normal microbiota constitutes an unique organ-specific biofilm. READ MORE
