  1. 1. Genomic Organization and Capsid Architecture of Ljungan Virus : a Novel Member of the Picornaviridae

    Author : Susanne Johansson; Michael Lindberg; Einar Everitt; Tapani Hovi; Högskolan i Kalmar; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Virology; Virologi; Virologi; Virology;

    Abstract : Ljungan virus är ett virus som isolerades i Sverige i mitten på nittiotalet. Under perioden 1989-1992 avled flera svenska elitorienterare plötsligt i hjärtmuskelinflammation. Man misstänkte att orienterarna kunde ha utsatts för en vektorburen infektion eftersom de exponeras för djur som finns i skog och mark under träning och tävling. READ MORE

  2. 2. Immunotherapy in cancer and HIV

    Author : Susanne Johansson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Immunotherapy; Cancer; HIV; DNA-vaccine; Conjugated mAb; NK-cells;

    Abstract : Two major threats to human health are cancer and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. In both cases, a feature of progress of the disease is a defective immune function. Immunological mechanisms have evolved whereby transformed cells and HIV-1 infected cells avoid recognition and elimination by the immune system. READ MORE

  3. 3. Natural Killer Cells and Antibodymediated Effects in Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection

    Author : Susanne Johansson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) effectively avoids immunologic eradication. Certain characteristics of the virus contribute to this, including the specific targeting of the body s own defense system, the ability to hide in the host cell genome and the vast viral variability.

    Abstract : Coach-athlete sexual relationships (CASR) and sexual harassment and abuse (SHA) in sport can profoundly impact athletes’ welfare and performance. Yet, it is often ignored due to sensitivity, secrecy, and lack of knowledge. There is no previous research on SHA in sport in Sweden, and legal, consensual, same-sex CASR is under-researched.

  5. 5. Design and Synthesis of Sialic Acid Conjugates as Inhibitors of EKC-causing Adenoviruses

    Author : Susanne Johansson; Jan Kihlberg; Mikael Elofsson; Stefan Oscarson; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : The combat against viral diseases has been, and still is, a major challenge in the field of drug development. Viruses are intracellular parasites that use the host cell ma-chinery for their replication and release. Therefore it is difficult to target and destroy the viral particle without disturbing the essential functions of the host cell. READ MORE
