  1. 1. The quest for new improved adenovirus gene therapy vectors against glioma tumours

    Author : Johan Skog; Göran Wadell; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gene therapy; virology; adenovirus; glioma; glioblastoma; Genterapi; virologi; adenovirus; gliom; glioblastom; Virology; Virologi;

    Abstract : Gene therapy has received much attention the last decade as a method to correct a number of disorders arising from a defective gene. Gene therapy can be defined as the introduction of a functional genetic element into a cell for a therapeutic purpose. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human adenoviruses : new bioassays for antiviral screening and CD46 interaction

    Author : Emma Andersson; Göran Wadell; Sigvard Olofsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adenovirus; CD46; hemagglutination; antiviral; small molecule; screening; Virology; Virologi;

    Abstract : Adenoviruses are common pathogens all over the world. The majority of the population has at some point been infected with an adenovirus. Although severe disease can occur in otherwise healthy individuals an adenovirus infection is most commonly self limited in these cases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cellular receptors for viruses with ocular tropism

    Author : Emma C Nilsson; Niklas Arnberg; Eric J Kremer; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adenovirus; picornavirus; receptors; antivirals; Virology; Virologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology; Infectious Diseases; infektionssjukdomar; mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Several viruses from different virus families are known to cause ocular infections, e.g. members of the Adenoviridae, Picornaviridae and the Herpesviridae families. These infections are spread by contact and in the case of adenoviruses (Ads) and picornaviruses they are also highly contagious. READ MORE

  4. 4. Replication-competent adenovirus 11p vector as a new oncolytic agent

    Author : Jim Silver; Ya-Fang Mei; Gunnel Halldén; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Virologi; Adenovirus; Vector; mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Human adenoviruses (Ads) as vectors have been studied for cancer gene therapy for several decades due to their ability to shut down host cell replication and lyse tumour cells. Ad5 of species C is commonly used as a replication-defective or a replication-competent vector. READ MORE

  5. 5. Rift Valley fever : consequences of virus-host interactions

    Author : Maria Baudin; Magnus Evander; Clas Ahlm; Göran Bucht; Tomas Bergström; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rift Valley fever; Rift Valley fever virus; viral haemorrhagic fever; miscarriage; entry; charge; carbohydrates; high-throughput screening; antiviral; cell-based assay; medicinsk virologi; Medical Virology;

    Abstract : Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV) is a mosquito-borne virus which has the ability to infect a large variety of animals including humans in Africa and Arabian Peninsula. The abortion rate among these animals are close to 100%, and young animals develop severe disease which often are lethal. READ MORE
