  3. 3. Dendritic cells in cancer immunotherapy

    Author : Karin Gustafsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : vaccines; dendritic cells; αDC1; PGE2DC; natural killer cells; T cells;

    Abstract : Dendritic cells (DCs) play a central role in the initiation and regulation of innate and adaptive immune responses and have increasingly been applied as vaccines for cancer patients. Ex vivo generation and antigen loading of monocyte-derived DCs allows a controlled maturation, with the aim of imprinting different DC functions that are essential for their subsequent induction of a T cell-mediated anti-tumor response.

    Author : Niklas Hagberg; Lars Rönnblom; Maija-Leena Eloranta; George Tsokos; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Systemic lupus erythematosus; plasmacytoid dendritic cells; natural killer cells; type I interferon; immune complex; SLAM receptors; autoantibodies; CD94 NKG2A; CD94 NKG2C; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science; Immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease characterized by autoantibody production, which can eventually lead to immune complex (IC)-mediated organ damage. Due to the stimulation of plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDC) by nucleic acid-containing ICs (DNA- or RNA-IC), patients with SLE have an ongoing interferon (IFN)-α production. READ MORE

  5. 5. The role of natural killer cells and inflammatory mediators in preeclamptic pregnancies

    Author : Nora Bachmayer; Eva Sverremark-Ekström; Katarina Bremme; Lucia Mincheva-Nilsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; preeclampsia; NK cells; Immunology; Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : The maternal immune system must be able to adjust during pregnancy and accept the foetus that expresses paternal antigens. These changes are found both in placenta and circulation, including a mild inflammatory response. NK cells are abundant during the early part of pregnancy in placenta and are thought to be important for placental development. READ MORE
