  1. 1. Granulocyte activation by danger signals and blocking of receptor responses

    Author : Anna-Lena Stenfeldt; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; granulocytes; neutrophils; eosinophils; danger signals; danger theory; formyl peptide receptors; antagonists; inhibitors;

    Abstract : Granulocytes are the most abundant cells in the peripherial blood. They serve to eliminate invading microbes and parasites and release anti-microbial agents. In the event of injury, granulocytes are recruited to damaged tissues. READ MORE

  2. 2. Granulocyte Adhesion to Matrix Proteins and the Effect on the Release of Granule Proteins : Development of a Simple Method and its Application in Experimental and Clinical Studies

    Author : Xiaoyan Xu; Joachim Lundahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; Eosinophils; Neutrophils; Adhesion; Release of ECP; Extracellular matrix proteins; Granulocytes; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : Granulocyte adhesion and release of their granule proteins are key steps during selective accumulation of a certain cell to an inflammatory site. Eosinophils are specifically recruited to sites of allergic inflammation and parasitic infection, whereas neutrophil influx predominates in bacterial infection and rheumatoid arthritis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Infective Endocarditis : aspects of pathophysiology, epidemiology, management and prognosis

    Author : Christer Ekdahl; Rolf Maller; Mats Broqvist; Urban Forsum; Lennart E. Nilsson; Rune Andersson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epidemiology; Infective endocarditis IE ; heart valve surgery; monocytes; granulocytes; staphylococ; Epidemiology; Epidemiologi;

    Abstract : Infective endocarditis (IE) is a rare but complex disease that is fatal if untreated. With a modern combination of antimicrobial therapy and heart valve surgery, mortality is still 10-20 %. The structure of the endocarditis vegetation impedes the penetration of phagocytic cells such as monocytes and granulocytes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Glucose and insulin modulate phagocytosis and production of reactive oxygen metabolites in human neutrophil granulocytes

    Author : Daniel Saiepour; Per-Arne Oldenborg; Janove Sehlin; Olle Stendahl; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neutrophil granulocytes; glucose; insulin; protein kinase C; diacylglycerol; phagocytosis; respiratory burst; diabetes; Histology; Histologi;

    Abstract : Neutrophil granulocytes play an important role in the host defence against invading microorganisms and constitute the frontline of defence within the innate immune system and are among the first cells to arrive at the site of inflammation. Effective phagocytosis and killing of invading pathogens by neutrophils is of significant importance for successful resistance to infectious diseases. READ MORE
