  1. 1. Immune maturation in early childhood and the influence of herpesvirus infections

    Author : Ebba Sohlberg; Eva Sverremark-Ekström; Eleanor Riley; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Immune differentiation; monocytes; NK cells; B cells; T cells; Epstein-Barr virus; EBV; cytomegalovirus; CMV; IFN-γ; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : The quality of immune responses develops from birth into adulthood and in the context of the host microbial environment. The aim of this work was to study immune maturation during childhood, and how this process can be affected by the common herpesviruses; Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and cytomegalovirus (CMV). READ MORE

  2. 2. Commensal microbes, immune reactivity and childhood inflammatory bowel disease

    Author : Cecilia Barkman; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Inflammatory bowel disease; IBD; Pediatric; Childhood; Microbiota; T cells; B cells; cytokine; IL-12; monocytes; phagocytosis; intracellular signaling pathway; Crohn s disease; ulcerative colitis; children; flora;

    Abstract : Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is characterized by chronic and relapsing intestinal inflammation of unknown etiology, but immune activation by the commensal microbiota probably plays a major role. The two major categories of IBD are ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bacterial Regulation of Peripheral Immunity : Mechanistic insights from lactobacilli and Staphylococcus aureus

    Author : Manuel Mata Forsberg; Eva Sverremark-Ekström; Monika Brunner-Weinzierl; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Immune regulation; Cytokines; T cells; gamma-delta T cells; MAIT cells; NK cells; Lactobacillus; Staphylococcus aureus; staphylococcal enterotoxins; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : There is a constant cross-talk between our immune system and the colonizing microbiota. The gut resident bacteria produce a broad range of molecules with regulatory activities in both local and distal tissues. Staphylococcus (S. READ MORE

  4. 4. Functions and memory features of adaptive- and innate immune cells in physiological and inflammatory settings

    Author : Gintare Lasaviciute; Eva Sverremark-Ekström; Silke Appel; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Innate immune memory; Limosilactobacillus reuteri; dendritic cells; lymphocytes; cytokines; immunological memory; intestinal epithelial cells; chemotherapy; bone marrow; secondary lymphoid organs; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : The immune system is a complex but well-regulated network which cooperates with the microbiota to maintain optimal homeostasis under physiological settings. A number of factors display the capacity to alter the immune system and thus microbiota crosstalk including host genetics, diet, environmental influences and drugs such as antibiotics or chemotherapeutic agents.

  5. 5. Human Dendritic Cells and the Regulation of Allergic Immune Responses

    Author : Malin Lindstedt; Institutionen för immunteknologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi; Immunology; allergic rhinitis; inflammation; transcriptional profiling; T cells; Dendritic cells; microarray;

    Abstract : Dendritic cells (DC) are a heterogeneous lineage of bone-marrow-derived leukocytes that serve as the link between innate and adaptive immunity. They are professional antigen-presenting cells that play an important protective and regulatory role in both health and disease. READ MORE
