    Abstract : Rift Valley Fever virus (RVFV) causes an infection with severe impact on animal and human health. The disease is endemic throughout almost the entire African continent and large regions of the Arabian Peninsula. During epidemics, high mortality is observed in animals, especially among cattle, goats, and sheep. READ MORE

    Author : Peter Berglund; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Semliki Forest virus; Alphavirus; Synthetic vaccmes; Influenza A virus; HIV-I; SIV; DNA vaccines; AIDS vaccines; Influenza vaccine;

    Abstract : ALPHAVIRUS VECTORS AS RECOMBINANT VACCINES Peter Berglund Doctoral dissertation from the Microbiology and TumorbiologyCenter Karolinska Institute, Sweden This thesis describes further developments of an expression system based on thealphavirus Semliki Forest virus (SFV), and its potential use as recombinant vaccine. The RNA genome of SFV contains a 3'open reading frame (ORF) encoding the structuralproteins, and a 5' ORF coding for the viral replicase. READ MORE

  5. 5. Dendritic cells in cancer immunotherapy

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Karin Gustafsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; vaccines; dendritic cells; αDC1; PGE2DC; natural killer cells; T cells;

    Abstract : Dendritic cells (DCs) play a central role in the initiation and regulation of innate and adaptive immune responses and have increasingly been applied as vaccines for cancer patients. Ex vivo generation and antigen loading of monocyte-derived DCs allows a controlled maturation, with the aim of imprinting different DC functions that are essential for their subsequent induction of a T cell-mediated anti-tumor response.
