  1. 1. Herpesvirus infections in transplant recipients

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Jenny K Lindahl; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Allogeneic stem cell transplantation; Cytomegalovirus; Epstein-Barr virus; Human Herpesvirus type 6; Renal transplantation; Varicella zoster virus;

    Abstract : Abstract Herpesvirus infections are common and can cause serious and life-threatening conditions in transplanted individuals. In this thesis, consisting of 4 papers (I-IV), we investigated primary infection and reactivation of Cytomegalovirus (CMV), Human Herpesvirus type 6 (HHV-6), Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) and Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) in transplant patients.

  2. 2. Cytomegalovirus Infection in Immunocompetent and Renal Transplant Patients Clinical Aspects and T-cell Specific Immunity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrik Sund; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cytomegalovirus; renal transplantation; cellular immunity; valacyclovir; mismatched; prophylaxis; tetramer; CD4 T cells; CD8 T cells; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Infectious diseases; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Infektionssjukdomar;

    Abstract : Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a β-herpesvirus that, after primary infection, establishes a life-long persistence in the human host. Up to 90% of humans are infected with CMV, that is kept under control by CMV-specific CD8+ and CD4+ T cells. In patients with an impaired cellular immunity, however, CMV infections can be life-threatening. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cytomegalovirus Infection in Vascular Diseases and Transplant Rejection

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Author : Mensur Dzabic; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infects 60-100% of the adult population. It belongs to the Herpesviridae family and establishes latency within its host post primary infection. HCMV reactivation is dependent on inflammation and the virus has evolved numerous mechanisms to sustain an inflammatory process and thus prolong its replication period. READ MORE

  4. 4. Opportunistic viral infection after paediatric transplantation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Author : Carola Kullberg-Lindh; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Paediatric liver transplantation; paediatric stem cell transplantation; immunosuppression; opportunistic; CMV; EBV; AdV; HHV-6; real-time PCR; monitoring; specimen; post transplant lymphoproliferative disease;

    Abstract : Background: Opportunistic viral infections can cause considerable morbidity and mortality in organ and stem cell transplanted (SCT) patients, mainly due to iatrogenic T cell dysfunction. Whereas in SCT patients, in general the immunosuppressive treatment can be discontinued after 6-12 months, for the majority of organ transplanted patients, the need for treatment is life-long.

  5. 5. Epstein-Barr virus latency in transplant patients and healthy carriers

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)

    Author : Jiezhi Zou; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : In this thesis, 1 studied the latency situation of Epstein- Barr virus (EBV) in bone marrow transplanted (BMT) patients and healthy virus carriers. Paper 1 Epstein-Barr virus genomes are found predominantly in lgA-positive B cells in the blood of healthy carriers. READ MORE
