  1. 1. Macrophages : As central inflammatory mediators and as targets for therapeutic interventions

    Författare :Åsa Andersson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Macrophages; HMGB1; IL-23; MS; EAE; autoimmunity.;

    Sammanfattning : Macrophages (Mphis) are important cellular players in autoimmune pathogenesis, being the most numerous cells infiltrating sites of inflammation and causing much of the associated tissue damage. Apart from these proinflammatory actions, Mphis also have distinct roles in disease resolution, and effective therapeutic targeting of Mphi-expressed molecules requires understanding of the interplay between different Mphi activators and the kinetics of the induced responses.

  2. 2. Vårdskador vid omvårdnad : en studie av patienters, anhörigas och vårdgivares anmälningar

    Författare :Åsa Andersson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Adverse events;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Patient safety has, over the last decades, been increasingly established as an important global issue. Patient safety is jeopardized by for example adverse events and most of the current evidence on adverse events originates from hospitals, but many adverse events also happen in nursing homes.

  3. 3. B cell repertoire development in normal physiology and autoimmune disease

    Författare :Åsa Andersson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; B cell repertoire; connectivity; natural antibodies; non-obese diabetic NOD ; Ig therapy; Vh7183 gene family;

    Sammanfattning : The B cell repertoire in the neonatal immune system (IS) is characterised by reactivity towards self-components, including other immunoglobulin (Ig) V-regions. These properties have been suggested to be a requirement for the development of a normal immune system. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : This thesis describes the impact of the notion of a calling on the development of the nursing profession during the period 1850–1933. The focus of the study is on how perceptions andnotions of a calling were altered over time, and in which way this historically shaped conceptinfluenced the professionalisation of the female health care work.

  5. 5. Characterization of first ever stroke patients : functional status with special reference to risk of falls and fracture

    Författare :Åsa G. Andersson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; stroke;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction. The costs for falling accidents in Sweden are very high. There is now evidence that assessments and intervention programmes are effective in reducing the risk of falling. It is important to identify which patients have a risk of falling and therefore would benefit most from fall prevention measures. LÄS MER
