  2. 2. On the Immune Regulation of Bone Response to Biomaterials

    Author : Ricardo Trindade; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomaterial; Immune System; Osseointegration; Foreign body reaction; Immune modulation; Titanium; Copper; Polyether ether ketone; PEEK;

    Abstract : Osseointegration is the biological basis for bone anchorage of oral implants, and revolu-tionized the replacement of lost teeth. It is also applied in bone anchored hearing aids and limb replacement in amputees. READ MORE

  3. 3. Developing a Porcine Model to Study the Glymphatic System

    Author : Nicholas Bechet; Glia-Immune Interactions; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glymphatic system; cerebrospinal fluid; Porcine; in vivo imaging; amyloid beta; Alzheimer disease;

    Abstract : The glymphatic system is a brain-wide solute clearance system that has developed in the brain to clear metabolic waste during sleep. This clearance is mediated by advective fluxes of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) along perivascular spaces (PVS) and through the brain. READ MORE

  4. 4. Involvement of the immune system in phytohaemagglutinin-induced structural and functional precocious maturation of the gut in young rats

    Author : Olena Prykhodko; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cytokines; mucosa; development; Gastrointestinal tract; mammals; immune system; T-cells;

    Abstract : Mammals are born with an immature gastrointestinal (GI) tract that allows the uptake of the specific nutrients and bioactive macromolecules in the milk, especially the protecting maternal antibodies. Eventually during weaning, the intake of milk decreases while that of solid food increases, and the GI system undergoes prominent structural and functional changes adapting the young this dietary change.

  5. 5. Ecology and evolution in a host-parasitoid system : Host search, immune responses and parasitoid virulence

    Author : Lisa Fors; Peter Hambäck; Wertheim Bregje; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Host-parasitoid interactions; Plant-herbivore interactions; Host search; Volatiles; Pheromones; Geographic variation; Cellular defence; Melanisation; Encapsulation; Asecodes; Galerucella; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Abstract : In host-parasitoid systems, there is a continuous coevolutionary arms race where each species imposes a strong selection pressure on the other. The host needs to develop defence strategies in order to escape parasitism and the parasitoid must evolve counter-defence strategies in order to overcome the host’s immune defence and successfully reproduce.
