    Abstract : Successful clinical xenotransplantation, i.e., transplantation between species, would eliminate the shortage of donor organs. In order to study the acute cellular rejection reaction following discordant xenogeneic transplantation, an experimental pig-to- mouse islet xenotransplantation model was established. READ MORE

  2. 2. Graft-versus-Host Disease: Eosinophils, Chimerism and Clinical Features in Patients Undergoing Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell or Multivisceral Transplantation

    Author : Julia Cromvik; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : graft-versus-host disease; eosinophilic granulocyte; intestinal transplantation; multivisceral transplantation; chimerism analysis;

    Abstract : Abstract Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is a potentially severe complication that may develop after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). It can also occur after transplantation with isolated intestinal grafts or after multivisceral transplantation (MVTX). GVHD is difficult to diagnose. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mechanisms of allergic airway inflammation. Role of bone marrow

    Author : Svetlana Sergejeva; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : asthma; eosinophil; CD34 cell; eosinophilopoiesis; IL-17;

    Abstract : Allergic airway (AW) inflammation is characterized by accumulation of inflammatory cells within the AW. It is likely that the accumulation of cells within AW is a combination of increased production, migration and prolonged survival of the cells. Inflammatory cells develop from CD34+hematopoietic progenitor cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterisation of eosinophil activity markers : Relation to allergic inflammation and apoptosis

    Author : Anna Nopp; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : An allergic inflammation is characterised by many different factors, among which eosinophils and the release of their granule content e.g. eosinophilic cationic protein (ECP) constitute main features. READ MORE

  5. 5. Transforming growth factor a in human hematopoietic cells

    Author : Thomas M. Walz; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : TGF-a, transforming growth factor a, is a potent growth factor belonging to the family of EGF (epidermal growth factor) -related proteins. Binding to the same receptor as EGF it has a ubiquitous repertoire of target cells, including, mesenchymal, epithelial and neuronal cells. READ MORE
