  1. 1. Neutrophils versus Pathogenic Fungi : through the magnifying glass of nutritional immunity

    Author : Maria Joanna Niemiec; Constantin F. Urban; Bernhard Hube; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neutrophils; Candida albicans; nutritional immunity; metallome; Zn; Fe;

    Abstract : Neutrophils are among the first white blood cells recruited to the site of infection once microbial pathogens enter the host organism. At site, they perform a well-orchestrated chain of processes that aims to kill the microbial invader. Most prominent, neutrophils engulf microbes to inactivate them intracellularly, a process called phagocytosis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Functional characterization of pro-angiogenic neutrophils

    Author : Jalal Lomei; Mia Phillipson; Gustaf Christoffersson; Johan Kreuger; Lars Olaf Cardell; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; angiogenesis; leukocytes; neutrophils; pro-angiogenic neutrophils; islets transplantation; intravital microscopy; aortic ring assay; phagocytosis; ROS production; hypoxia; vascular permeability; neutrophil recruitment; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : The vascular system stretches throughout the body to provide oxygen, nutrition, and to remove waste products from cell metabolism. Angiogenesis, formation of new blood vessels by sprouting from pre-existing vessels, is one of the main mechanisms involved in blood vessel formation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Malaria during pregnancy and childhood : A focus on soluble mediators and neutrophils

    Author : Stéphanie Boström; Marita Troye-Blomberg; Maria Yazdanbakhsh; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plasmodium falciparum; pregnancy; childhood; neutrophils; biomarkers; cytokines; chemokines; antibodies; Fulani; Dogon; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : In areas where malaria is endemic, pregnant women and children bear the main burden of severe and life-threatening malarial disease. The aim of this work was to study the impact of Plasmodium falciparum infection on inflammatory responses in pregnant women and children residing in African countries. READ MORE

  4. 4. Neutrophils in atherosclerosis

    Author : Pierre Rotzius; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is a complex inflammatory disease localized in medium-sized and large arteries and it is the most important contributor to cardiovascular disease. Complications of atherosclerosis such as myocardial infarction and stroke are leading causes of mortality in many countries. READ MORE

  5. 5. Membrane traffic in neutrophils and neutrophil-like cells

    Author : Susanne Bauer; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Infections; membrane traffic; Hematologi; extracellular fluids; Haematology; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; CD177; extracellulära vätskor; PR3; phagocytosis; Streptococcus pyogenes; Infektioner; neutrophils;

    Abstract : The neutrophil constitutes the first line of defence against invading organisms and its primary function is to recognize, phagocytose and kill intruding microorganisms. In this thesis, the membrane traffic in neutrophils and neutrophil-like cells was studied. Non-opsonised S. READ MORE
