    Author : Jonas Erjefält; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; eosinophils; neutrophils; plasma exudation; barrier restitution; basal cells; ciliated cells; secretory cells; Epithelial repair; epithelial shedding; fibrinogen; fibronectin; Respiratory system; Andningsorganen;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Inflammatoriska luftvägssjukdomar såsom astma och rinit är några av de folksjukdomar som trots den moderna läkarvetenskapen uppvisat en ökad prevalens de senaste decennierna. En allergisk reaktion och efterföljande inflammation tros ligga bakom många av de förändringar som karakteriserar astmatiska luftvägar tex infiltration av vita blodkroppar och extravasering av plasma.

  2. 2. Pathogenic Neisseria infections of human neutrophils and epithelial cells : focusing on host responses and immune evasion

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Niklas Söderholm; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Neisseria meningitidis; Neisseria gonorrhoeae; Neutrophils; PMN; Epithelial cells; Polarized cells; Type IV pili; Adherence; Cell cycle; DNA damage; Lactobacillus; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : N. meningitidis and N. gonorrhoeae are obligate human pathogens that colonize mucosal surfaces and are often carried asymptomatically. These bacteria have developed adhesive structures that promote adherence to host cells and efficient colonization of new hosts. READ MORE

  3. 3. Approaches to analyses of cytotoxic cells. And studies of their role in H. pylori infection

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Josef Azem; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Helicobacter pylori; mucosal immunology; stomach; duodenum; asymptomatic; duodenal ulcer; gastric adenocarcinoma; NK cells; T cells; B cells; dendritic cells; cytotoxic;

    Abstract : Helicobacter pylori infection causes chronic gastritis that may progress to peptic ulcers or gastric adenocarcinoma and thereby cause major world-wide health problems. Previous studies have shown that CD4+ T cells and the production of the cytokine IFN- × are important components of the immune response to H. pylori in humans. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lactobacilli- and Staphylococcus aureus mediated modulation of immune responses in vitro

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Yeneneh Haileselassie; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lactobacilli; staphylococcus aureus; dendritic cells; retinoic acid; epithelial cells; T cells; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : The human gut harbors a vast number of microbes. These microbes are not passive bystanders. They are important in modulating the immune system. We have previously shown that early colonization with lactobacilli and Staphylococcus (S. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulatory Proteins in Progenitors and Differentiated Cells of the Human Prostate

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Jens Ceder; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mesenchymal stem cells; somatostatin; transit amplifying cells; cell differentiation; adult stem cells; Prostate gland; prostatic benign hyperplasia; neuroendocrine cells; prostate cancer;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer (PC) develops from an androgen-dependent tissue that contains androgen receptors in both the stromal and glandular compartments. Surgical removal of the prostate may cure the patient, but if metastatic spread has occurred, androgen suppression therapy is the standard treatment. READ MORE
