    Abstract : Immunotherapy is a new promising approach in cancer treatment. In the future, it will hopefully offer an alternative to existing brain tumors treatments, which are unable to cure. We have established an experimental, low immunogenic, brain tumor model in the rat. READ MORE

  2. 2. In vitro studies on the mechanisms of inhibited thyroidal iodide uptake and destructive thyroiditis as adverse effects of amiodarone and interferon-gamma

    University dissertation from Edward Visse BMC-ImmunbiologiTumör ImmunologiSölvegatan 21223 62 LundSweden

    Author : Sofia Tedelind; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; thyroid; amiodarone; interferon-gamma; iodide transport; tight junction; mitochondria; endocytosis;

    Abstract : The clinical use of the potent anti-arrhythmic drug amiodarone is limited due to adverse effects e.g. in the thyroid comprising both hypo- and hyperthyroidism. Amiodarone-induced thyroid dysfunction can occur in subjects with normal thyroid glands but also in those with an underlying thyroid abnormality resulting in an aggravation of the condition.

    Abstract : The most malignant brain tumour, glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), has an utterly bad prognosis. In spite of all available therapy, the mean survival time is less than a year. In the unique BRIGTT project (Brain Immuno Gene Tumour Therapy), patients at the Dept of Neurosurgery. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mycobacterial infection: Immune evasion, host susceptibility and immunological markers of diagnostic importance

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : John Arko-Mensah; Carmen Fernandez; Francesco Dieli; ; [2008]

    Abstract : IIn the first study, we investigated the functional implications of prolonged TLR signalling on IFN-γ mediated killing of mycobacteria by murine macrophages in vitro. TLR2, but not TLR4 ligation interfered with IFN-γ mediated killing of mycobacteria in macrophages. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of influenza A virus infections and interferon-gamma on synapse formation and function in hippocampal neurons in culture

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Johan Brask; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Influenza A virus; hippocampal neurons; interferon-gamma; electrophysiology; synapses.;

    Abstract : The central nervous system (CNS) can be the target for several infections that include those with RNA viruses. The parenchyma of the CNS is considered an immuneprivileged site since it is protected behind the blood-brain barrier, expresses no or only low levels of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules and contains a paucity of antigenpresenting cells that prime an immune response.
