  1. 1. Development of a New Oral Vaccine against Diphtheria and the Study of its Immunogenicity in Mouse and Man

    Author : Niclas Rydell; Ingvar Sjöholm; Sveinbjörn Gizurarson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutics; oral vaccination; mucosal vaccination; diphtheria; biodegradable; microparticles; starch; CRM197; adjuvant; vaccine; Galenisk farmaci; Pharmaceutics; Galenisk farmaci;

    Abstract : Most pathogens enter the body via mucosal surfaces. In contrast to parenterally administered vaccination, mucosal vaccination has the advantage of eliciting both a systemic and a local mucosal immune response. An oral biodegradable adjuvant with these features would have great potential. READ MORE

  2. 2. Broadly protective nanoparticle-based mucosal vaccine against influenza virus infection

    Author : Valentina Bernasconi; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mucosal vaccination; Influenza A virus; CTA1-DD; Nanoparticle; Targeted adjuvant; Nasal immunization; Oral immunization; Neonatal vaccine; Universal vaccine;

    Abstract : Influenza is one of the major viral diseases affecting humans and it is responsible for three to five million cases of severe illness and about 250.000 to 500.000 deaths each year worldwide. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mucosal immunity against mycobacterial infection

    Author : Muhammad Jubayer Rahman; Carmen Fernández; Ingileif Jonsdottir; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mucosal immunity; Vaccination; Diagnosis; Mycobacterial infection; Immunology; Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : This thesis aimed to the identification of immune biomarkers of mycobacterial infection for better diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) and also focused on new vaccination strategies with a particular emphasis on the immune responses in the respiratory tract using murine models. Since the lung is the natural habitat for the M. READ MORE

  4. 4. CTA1-DD; A novel vaccine adjuvant system based on ADP-ribosyltransferase activity and B cell targeting

    Author : Lena Ågren; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cholera toxin; ADP-ribosyltransferase activity; adjuvant; vaccine; B cells; targeting;

    Abstract : The ADP-ribosylating enterotoxins, cholera toxin (CT) and E. coli heat-labile toxin (LT) are among the most powerful immunogens and adjuvants yet described. An innate problem, though, is their strong toxic effects, largely due to their promiscuous binding to all nucleated cells via their B-subunits. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mucosal Vaccination Using Polyacryl Starch Microparticles as Adjuvant with Salmonella enteritidis as a Model Pathogen

    Author : Lena Strindelius; Ingvar Sjöholm; Mary Jo Wick; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutics; mucosal vaccination; polyacryl starch microparticles; salmonella enteritidis; flagellin; fimbriae; rCTB; LPS; Ussing chamber; Galenisk farmaci; Pharmaceutics; Galenisk farmaci; galenisk farmaci; Pharmaceutics;

    Abstract : Polyacryl starch microparticles have been developed as a new mucosal vaccine adjuvant intended for use in oral vaccination. The main objectives of this thesis were to evaluate the efficacy of these polyacryl starch microparticles and to study their uptake through mucosal tissues. READ MORE
