  1. 1. Human intestinal T lymphocytes : a comparative analysis of phenotype and function in normal and inflamed mucosa

    Author : Silvia Melgar; Nadine Cerf-Bensussan; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; human intestinal mucosa; intraepithelial lymphocyte; lamina propria lymphocyte; γδ T cell; regulatory T cell; cytotoxicity; cytokine; basal lymphoid aggregate; ulcerative colitis; Crohn s disease;

    Abstract : The epithelial lining of the gut must allow immediate contact with beneficial components as nutrients and normal microflora. At the same time it runs the constant risk of attack from pathogenic microbes and noxious agents. READ MORE

  2. 2. On CD4+ T Lymphocytes in Solid Tumours

    Author : Per Marits; Ola Winqvist; Magnus Thörn; Alex Karlsson-Parra; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Molecular medicine; Tumour immunology; T lymphocytes; sentinel node detection; colon cancer; urinary bladder cancer; adoptive immunotherapy; Molekylärmedicin;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with recognition and elimination of tumours by T lymphocytes and their use in adoptive immunotherapy.The first tumour-draining lymph node; the sentinel node, is identified by peritumoural injection of a tracer. This is the hypothesised location for the activation of tumour-reactive lymphocytes. READ MORE

  3. 3. T-cell regulation of immune responses to the Plasmodium falciparum antigen Pf155/RESA

    Author : Lalitha Kabilan; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Antigens; surface; immunology T-lymphocytes; Plasmodium falciparum;

    Abstract : Plasmodium falciparum is the cause of the most severe malaria inhumans. Due to the rapid resurgence of malaria in many parts of theworld extensive efforts have been made during the last few years todefine several P.falciparum antigens for inclusion in a vaccine. READ MORE

  4. 4. Regulatory properties of dendritic cells and B cells in adaptive immunity

    Author : Bengt Johansson Lindbom; Adaptivt immunförsvar; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi; Immunology; Cellular differentiation; Cytokines; Dendritic cells; B lymphocytes; T lymphocytes;

    Abstract : This thesis is based upon four original papers in which human dendritic cells (DCs) and B cells have been analyzed in terms of how they influence the character of adaptive immune responses. DCs isolated from human tonsils were found to possess a capacity to directly regulate proliferation, isotype switching, and antibody production in B cells. READ MORE

  5. 5. Heavy Metal Superantigen : Genetic Regulation of Lymphocyte Activation by HgC12

    Author : Yun Jiang; Peter Mathieson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Injections of subtoxic doses of HgCl2 (mercuric chloride) cause a systemic autoimmune disease in genetically predisposed rats and mice. My work was designed to elucidate how HgCl2 induces lymphocyte activation and how the response to HgCl2 is regulated in susceptible and resistant strains. READ MORE
