  1. 1. Development of novel immunization approaches to generate immunity in the female genital tract with special reference to genital herpes

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Författare :Sara Tengvall; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; female genital tract immunity; genital herpes; mucosal adjuvant; TLR; MyD88; CpG ODN;

    Sammanfattning : Development of mucosal vaccines for inducing immunity in the female reproductive tract would have profound implications for the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. Despite numerous efforts, no such vaccines are currently available for human use. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Innate and adaptive immunity in genital HSV-2 infection: Implications for vaccine development

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg

    Författare :Ali M Harandi; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2001]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; genital herpes infection; natural antibody; CD4 T cells; CD8 T cells; IFN-g; IL-12; IL-18; CC chemokines; dendritic cells.;

    Sammanfattning : Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) is a sexually transmitted pathogen that infects the genital tract mucosa and is the most common case of genital ulcers in humans. Despite numerous studies, little is known about the mechanisms involved in immune protection and no anti-herpes vaccine has been developed to date. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Herpes simplex virus infection: epidemiological aspects and analysis of the type-specific antibody response

    Sammanfattning : Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2) are ubiquitous viruses, often leading to asymptomatic infections in humans. However, different clinical presentations can be seen including recurrent oral or genital lesions, meningitis and neonatal herpes. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mucosal adjuvants and their mode of action in the female genital tract

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg
