  1. 1. Infectious and bleeding complications in patients with hematological malignancies : Studies on diagnosis and prevention

    Author : Tobias Svensson; Honar Cherif; Martin Höglund; Jan Sjölin; Christine Wennerås; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Chronic lymphocytic leukemia; Immunodeficiency; Hypogammaglobulinemia; IgG subclass; Pneumococci; Pneumococcal vaccine; Polysaccharide vaccine; Protein-conjugate vaccine; Aspergillosis; Bronchoalveolar lavage; Invasive fungal disease; Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia; Myelodysplastic syndrome; Azacitidine; Eltrombopag; Thrombocytopenia; Thrombopoietin receptor; Oncology; Onkologi;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis is to improve knowledge about the prevention of infectious and bleeding complications in patients with hematological malignancies, primarily in those with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and myelodysplatic syndrome (MDS).Hypogammaglobulinemia, impaired production of immunoglobulins (Ig), is an established risk factor for infection, but the impact of IgG pure subclass deficiency (IgG subclass deficiency with adequate production of IgG, IgA, and IgM) has been debated.

  2. 2. Aspects of Complement Activation in Thrombocytopenic Disorders

    Author : Alexander Åkesson; Institutionen för translationell medicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Thrombocytopenia; Complement activation; Complement dysregulation; Thrombotic microangiopathy; Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome; Platelet transfusion refractoriness;

    Abstract : The complement system is an essential effector of both innate and acquired immune responses. Due to its destructive potential, tight regulation is required. The contribution of complement has been associated with the pathogeneses in a wide range of diseases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Pharmacometric Models for Antibody Drug Conjugates and Taxanes in HER2+ and HER2- Breast Cancer

    Author : Brendan Bender; Lena Friberg; Mats Karlsson; Jin Jin; Oscar della Pasqua; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pharmacometric; PKPD; model; breast cancer; T-DM1; thrombocytopenia; hepatotoxiticy; HER2; Pharmacokinetics and Drug Therapy; Farmakokinetik och läkemedelsterapi;

    Abstract : In oncology, there is a need to optimize drug treatment for efficient eradication of tumors, minimization of adverse effects (AEs), and prolonging patient survival. Pharmacometric models can be developed to streamline information between drug development phases, describe and quantify response to treatment, and determine dose regimens that balance toxicity and efficacy.

  4. 4. Streptococcus pyogenes - a manipulator of human defences

    Author : Fredrik Kahn; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Streptococcus pyogenes; M protein; neutrophils; platelets; platelet-neutrophil complexes; fibrinogen; IgG; abscess; venous thrombosis; heparin binding protein; thrombocytopenia;

    Abstract : Streptococcus pyogenes is a major human pathogen with more than 500 000 casualties annually of which at least 163 000 are due to invasive infections. The remainder is due to post-streptococcal complications with rheu¬matic heart disease constituting the majority. S. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic Screening in Patients Suspected of Inherited Bleeding Disorders

    Author : Marcus Fager Ferrari; Malmö Klinisk koagulationsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bleeding; Inherited Bleeding Disorders; Platelet Dysfunction; Thrombocytopenia; Genetic Screening; High-Throughput Sequencing; STX11; STXBP2; UNC13D; FGB; COL1A1; COL3A1; COL5A1; COL5A2; GNE; Sialic Acid; Oseltamivir;

    Abstract : Inherited bleeding disorders constitute a heterogeneous group of genetic diseases, affecting virtually all major components of the hemostatic system. The diagnostics are potentially complex, and a high proportion of patients remain without a conclusive diagnosis following work-up. READ MORE
