  1. 1. Respiratory burst and severity of demyelinating diseases

    Author : Natalia Mossberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurologi; immunologi; Guillain-Barré; Multiple sclerosis; respiratory burst;

    Abstract : Multiple sclerosis (MS) and the Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) are tissue-specific inflammatory diseases of the central and the peripheral nervous system, respectively. A contemporary analysis infers that these are complex autoimmune disorders. READ MORE

  2. 2. Neutrophil Chemotaxis and Respiratory Burst in Term and Preterm Newborn Infants

    Author : Maria Stålhammar; Richard Sindelar; Jens Schollin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : innate immunity; neutrophil; term newborn infants; preterm newborn infants; chemotaxis; respiratory burst; reactive oxygen species; cell surface receptor; IL-8; bacterial N-formyl peptide;

    Abstract : Neutrophil activation is the most important initial immune defense against invading microbes in newborn infants. The reduced neutrophil migration and uncontrolled regulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) production observed in neonates, could result in a diminished infectious response or in tissue damage.

  3. 3. Interactions between whole blood and biomaterial surfaces. With focus on the respiratory burst of adhering neutrophils as an early sign of cytotoxicity

    Author : Noushin Yahyapour; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : wettability; titanium; glass; peritoneal dialysis fluid; surface-adhering neutrophils; respiratory burst; thrombin; kallikrein; complement C5b-9;

    Abstract : Although a vast array of materials is used to augment or replace a natural function in the human body, many of them cause side-effects or may be rejected. The growing need for more biocompatible devices has been accompanied by an increase in new materials. READ MORE

  4. 4. Functions of integrin receptors in extravascular neutrophil migration and respiratory burst

    Author : Joachim Werr; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : adhesion molecules; leukocyte migration; neutrophils; chemotaxis; integrins; respiratory burst; leukocyte extravasation; extracellular matrix; intravital microscopy; acute inflammation;

    Abstract : Leukocytes circulate in the vasculature, but, must leave the blood stream and migrate through the surrounding tissue to exert their protective functions in inflammation. Numerous studies have revealed that intravascular leukocyte-endothelial cell interactions involve functions of adhesion molecules belonging to the selectin and integrin receptor families. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biological effects of glucose degradation products in peritoneal dialysis fluids

    Author : Peter Jonasson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Peritoneal dialysis; glucose degradation products; peritonitis; peritoneum; neutrophils; macrophages; vital microscopy; microcirculation; complement; leukocyte recruitment; respiratory burst.;

    Abstract : Background: It is well known that Peritoneal dialysis (PD) fluids have biological effects on a number of cells and tissues in the peritoneum and the peritoneal cavity. However, little attention has been paid to the influence of glucose degradation products (GDPs), formed during heat-sterilization and storage of PD fluids. READ MORE
