  1. 1. Studies on inflammation in atopic keratoconjunctivitis

    Author : Emma Nivenius; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; allergy;

    Abstract : Atopic keratoconjunctivitis (AKC) is an ocular inflammatory condition associated with atopic dermatitis. AKC is classified as ocular allergy but with features quite different from common seasonal allergic conjunctivitis. The clinical picture includes eyelid eczema, blepharitis, conjunctivitis, and some degree of keratitis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Consequences of Shb Deficiency on Hematopoietic Cell Function

    Author : Karin Gustafsson; Michael Welsh; Martin Bergö; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hematopoiesis; hematopoietic stem cells; myeloid neoplasia; T cells; atopic dermatitis; cell signaling; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : The adaptor protein Shb has been implicated in the signaling of several tyrosine kinase receptors and previous studies have suggested a role for Shb in the signal transduction of T cells. Shb associates with the T cell receptor (TCR) and partakes in the signal propagation of activated T lymphocytes. READ MORE

    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Atopic dermatitis; genome-wide linkage analysis; sib pairs; candidate genes; nonparametric linkage;

    Abstract : Known from ancient times, atopic dermatitis is now the most prevalent chronic inflammatory skin disease in Swedish children. This is the result of a marked increase over the past few decades. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies on sensitization and atopic disease in infants and children

    Author : Nele Sigurs; Inga-Lisa Strannegård; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Sensitization to food allergens dominated in infancy and IgE antibodies to inhalant allergens appeared later in a cross-sectional multicentre study of 224 children with atopic disease (113 children aged 0-3 years and 111 children aged 4-15 years). IgE antibodies to peanut, hazelnut, and almond were important in both age groups and even before known ingestion in infancy, suggesting sensitization through breast-milk. READ MORE

  5. 5. Gene mapping of atopic dermatitis

    Author : Cilla Söderhäll; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Atopic dermatitis is a hereditary, pruritic, inflammatory and chronic skin disease that typically presents in early childhood. It is often associated with other atopic manifestations, such as asthma, allergic rhinoconjunctivitis, and elevated total and/or allergen- specific serum lgE levels. READ MORE
