  1. 1. Heparin-binding protein and organ failure in critical illness

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Jonas Tydén; Umeå universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heparin-binding protein; Critical care; Shock; Acute respiratory distress syndrome; Acute kidney injury; Ventilator induced lung injury; Renal clearance; anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology;

    Abstract : Background: For patients severely ill enough to require care in an intensive care unit (ICU), both the disease itself (e.g. bacteria in the blood in sepsis or fractures after trauma) and effects of the immune system can cause circulatory, pulmonary, or renal dysfunction. Leukocytes play a dominant role in the immune system. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies on Heparin Binding protein in bacterial infections

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Adam Linder; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Infectious diseases remain a major health problem, where sepsis and other severe bacterial infections are common causes of morbidity and mortality, and are associated with high costs for the community. The importance of early and appropriate treatment of sepsis and severe bacterial infections has been underlined by many and since sepsis is more prevalent and has a higher mortality rate than for instance acute myocardial infarction, there is a need for improvement.

  3. 3. ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITIES OF HISTIDINE-RICH GLYCOPROTEIN AND CATIONIC PEPTIDES

    University dissertation from Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper, Lunds universitet

    Author : Victoria Rydengård; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dermatologi; venereologi; venereology; Dermatology; histidine-rich glycoprotein; heparin-binding; zinc; low pH; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Medicin människa och djur ; innate immunity; antimicrobial;

    Abstract : In an environment full of potential pathogens it is of importance for organisms to mount a fast and effective defence. Antimicrobial peptides are ancient and integral effector molecules of the innate immune system. They are found in all kinds of species from bacteria to plants and animals, indicating their importance during evolution. READ MORE

  4. 4. Novel Endogenous Antimicrobial Peptides

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Emma Nordahl; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; D5; HK; C3a; HMWK; complement; heparin-binding; antibacterial; Antimicrbial peptide; AMP;

    Abstract : Antimicrobial peptides serve as a first line of defence against invading microorganisms and are an essential part of our fast innate immune system. They are ancient molecules found in all classes of life. Antimicrobial peptides rapidly kill a broad spectrum of microbes and are immunomodulatory, i.e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Endothelial-leukocyte interactions

    University dissertation from Maria Olofsson, Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Box 94, S-221 00 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Maria Olofsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Histology; endothelial cell; leukocyte; apoptosis; mitochondria; heparin binding protein; vascular permeability; E-selectin; migration; rolling; cytochemistry; histochemistry; tissue culture; Histologi; cytokemi; histokemi; vävnadskultur;

    Abstract : This thesis describes early inflammatory responses involving interactions between leukocytes and the endothelial lining of the blood vessel wall. An adhesion molecule, E-selectin, which is upregulated on interleukin-1 activated endothelium, was found to mediate rolling between leukocytes and endothelial cells in vivo. READ MORE
