  1. 11. Complement evasion strategies of human pathogens - the evolutionary arms race

    University dissertation from Protein Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Monika Jusko; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; complement system; pathogen; periodontitis; proteases; immune escape;

    Abstract : Although the complement system, a pivotal component of innate immunty, is centrally involved in host defense against pathogens, its overactivation or deregulation may excessively amplify inflammation and contribute to immunopathology. Periodontitis, an oral infection-driven chronic inflammatory disease, has been linked with complement disruption by periodontal bacteria, resulting in inflammation and pathogenesis. READ MORE

  3. 13. Vesicle-independent extracellular release and bioactivity of peptidoglycan-associated lipoprotein from Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans

    University dissertation from Umeå : Odontologi

    Author : Maribasappa Karched; Umeå universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peptidoglycan-associated lipoprotein; outer membrane proteins; immunoproteomics; periodontitis; cytokines; Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans.; ODONTOLOGY Oral microbiology; ODONTOLOGI Oral mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : Aggregatibacter (Actinobacillus) actinomycetemcomitans is a Gram-negative coccobacillus of the Pasteurellaceae family. It is implicated in periodontitis, a common low-grade bacterial infection, but it can also cause non-oral infections. The main aim of this project was to identify and characterize in A. READ MORE

  4. 14. Insights into the processes preceding the onset of rheumatoid arthritis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Linda Johansson; Umeå universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rheumatoid arthritis; pre-symptomatic individuals; autoantibodies; anti-citrullinated protein peptides antibodies; Epstein-barr virus; neutrophil extracellular traps; periodontitis; Porphyromonas gingivalis; receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand; reumatologi; rheumatology;

    Abstract : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease, characterized by the production of anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA) in the majority of all patients and a persistent inflammation in the synovial tissue leading to joint destruction. The aetiology of RA remains to a large extent unknown but is believed to be a complex interplay between genetic, environmental and stochastic factors. READ MORE

  5. 15. Transcriptional patterns in inflammatory disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Johan Lindberg; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Gene expression profiling; transcription; microarray; rheumatoid arthritis; synovial tissue; variability; TNF‐α; anti‐TNF treatment; periodontitis; PGE2; TECHNOLOGY Bioengineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Bioteknik;

    Abstract : In the studies this thesis is based upon, microarrays were applied to profilemRNA populations in biological samples to gain insights into transcriptionalpatterns and their relation to inflammatory disease.Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease, which leads todegradation of cartilage and bone.
