  1. 1. Pattern-Recognition Receptors in Airway Inflammation

    Author : Anna-Karin Ekman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Airway inflammation is a defining feature of allergic rhinitis and asthma. Bacterial and viral infections are known to cause exacerbations of both diseases, but knowledge about the mechanisms involved is limited. READ MORE

  2. 2. Automated Tissue Image Analysis Using Pattern Recognition

    Author : Jimmy Azar; Anders Hast; Ewert Bengtsson; Martin Simonsson; Marco Loog; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; tissue image analysis; pattern recognition; digital histopathology; immunohistochemistry; paired antibodies; histological stain evaluation; Computerized Image Processing; Datoriserad bildbehandling;

    Abstract : Automated tissue image analysis aims to develop algorithms for a variety of histological applications. This has important implications in the diagnostic grading of cancer such as in breast and prostate tissue, as well as in the quantification of prognostic and predictive biomarkers that may help assess the risk of recurrence and the responsiveness of tumors to endocrine therapy.

  3. 3. Pattern-recognition receptors and neutrophils in cancer inflammation

    Author : Camilla Rydberg Millrud; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Chronic inflammation, induced by the use of tobacco and alcohol, or caused by infections has long been suggested to constitute a risk factor for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). The innate immunity is the first line of defense against pathogens, comprising physical and chemical barriers, anti-microbial peptides, pattern-recognition receptors (PRRs) as well as different kinds of cells, including neutrophils.

  4. 4. Recognition by leukocyte formyl peptide receptors. Promiscuous binding or pattern recognition?

    Author : Johan Bylund; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : neutrophils; chemoattractant; FPRL1; NADPH-oxidase; LPS; priming; subcellular organelles; human; murine;

    Abstract : Neutrophil granulocytes play an important role in the early stages of microbial infection. The neutrophils have to leave the blood stream and migrate out into the tissue where they phagocytose microbes and cell debris from damaged host tissues. READ MORE

  5. 5. Innate immunity in atherosclerosis : the role of pattern recognition receptors

    Author : Xiao-Ying Zhang; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The pathogenesis of atherosclerosis is greatly influenced by the activities of both innate and adaptive immunity. Danger signals such as cholesterol crystals, oxidized LDL, and modified phospholipids may trigger sterile inflammation in atherosclerosis. READ MORE
