  1. 1. Approaches to analyses of cytotoxic cells. And studies of their role in H. pylori infection

    Author : Josef Azem; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : Helicobacter pylori; mucosal immunology; stomach; duodenum; asymptomatic; duodenal ulcer; gastric adenocarcinoma; NK cells; T cells; B cells; dendritic cells; cytotoxic;

    Abstract : Helicobacter pylori infection causes chronic gastritis that may progress to peptic ulcers or gastric adenocarcinoma and thereby cause major world-wide health problems. Previous studies have shown that CD4+ T cells and the production of the cytokine IFN- × are important components of the immune response to H. pylori in humans. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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 : 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.

  3. 3. Generation of Dopaminergic Neurons from Human Embryonic Stem Cells

    Author : Tandis Vazin; Joakim Lundeberg; Ernest Arenas; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Human; dopaminergic; embryonic stem cells; differentiation; stromal cells; PA6 cells; dopamine; neurons; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap; Neurobiology; Neurobiologi; Molecular neurobiology; Molekylär neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Since the first successful derivation of human embryonic stem cells (hESC), rapid progress has been attained in the development of strategies in differentiation of these cells into various neural lineages, with the fundamental objective of using these cells for replacement and repair of damaged neuronal circuits in the central nervous system (CNS). Of particular interest are midbrain dopaminergic (mDA) neurons, which play a central role in regulation of voluntary movement. READ MORE

  4. 4. Peripheral immunity in patients with autoimmune endocrine diseases and the influence of physiological adaptions during pregnancy

    Abstract : Type 1 diabetes (T1D), Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT), Graves’ disease (GD), and autoimmune Addison’s disease (AD) appear to share immunogenetic mechanisms. This idea is not novel, as “autoimmune tautology” is an established concept. READ MORE

  5. 5. Immune cells in pregnant uterine mucosa : functional properties, cellular composition and tissue organization

    Author : Lucia Mincheva-Nilsson; Sten Hammarström; Rolf Kiessling; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; immunologically privileged site; TCR γδ cells; CD56 cells; large granular lymphocytes; immunosuppression; cytokine; interleukin; lymphoid cell cluster; intraepithelial lymphocytes; glandular epithelium; immuno electron microscopy; pregnancy; decidua; lactoferrin; lactoferrin receptor; colostrum;

    Abstract : The pregnant uterus mucosa - decidua - is an "immunologically privileged" site. A semiallogeneic embryo is allowed to survive, develop, and grow while the same tissue implanted outside the uterus will be rejected. The decidua basalis, which participates in the placenta formation, is a tissue rich in lymphoid cells. READ MORE
