  1. 1. Alopecia and vitiligo in autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type I

    Författare :Håkan Hedstrand; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Medical sciences; APS I; autoantigen; vitiligo; alopecia areata; cDNA-library; immunoscreening; tyrosine hydroxylase; SOX9; SOX10; molecular mimicry; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Sammanfattning : Autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type I (APS I) is a recessively inherited disease caused by mutations in a recently identified gene, AIRE, on human chromosome 21. APS I patients are affected by autoimmune destruction of multiple endocrine glands and other organs as well as ectodermal structures. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Organ-specific autoantibodies in Addison's disease and autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type I

    Författare :Annika Söderbergh; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Medical sciences; Addison s disease; APS I; Down syndrome; AIRE; autoantibodies; autoantigens; autoimmunity; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Sammanfattning : Assessment of autoantibodies is a valuable tool in the diagnostic procedure of autoimmune diseases. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of different autoantibodies and their associations with disease manifestations in patients with Addison's disease and autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type I (APS I).

  3. 3. Immunological Studies using Human and Canine Model Disorders

    Författare :Kerstin M. Ahlgren; Anna Lobell; Olle Kämpe; Kerstin Lindblad-Toh; Roland Jonsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Autoimmunity; T cell; T helper cell; B cell; Autoantibodies; Interferon; Interleukin; Dogs; APS-1; Candida albicans; fungus; Immunologi; Immunology; Medicin; Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : The studies presented in this thesis focus on human and canine models for autoimmune disease, with the main aim to gain new knowledge about disease mechanisms and to further evaluate the dog as a model for autoimmune disease. Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndrome type 1 (APS-1) is a hereditary human multiorgan disease caused by mutations in the autoimmune regulator (AIRE) gene. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Pteridine dependent hydroxylases as autoantigens in autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 1

    Författare :Olov Ekwall; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Medical sciences; APS I; alopecia; autoantigen; cDNA; malabsorption; phenylalanine hydroxylase; pteridine; tryptophan hydroxylase; tyrosine hydroxylase; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Sammanfattning : Autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type I (APS) is a monogenous, recessively inherited disease characterised by endocrine and non-endocrine autoimmune manifestations. One fifth of APS I patients suffer from periodic intestinal dysfunction with varying degrees of malabsorbtion, steatorrhea and constipation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Fine and Ultrafine Particles from Combustion Sources - Investigations with In-situ Techniques

    Författare :Joakim Pagels; Ergonomi och aerosolteknologi; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; pollution control; Environmental technology; Teknik; Technological sciences; Indoor Air; In-Situ Measurement; Biomass Combustion; Morphology; Hygroscopic Growth; Volatility; TDMA; APS; ELPI; Respiratory Deposition; Fine Particles; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp; Ultrafine Particles;

    Sammanfattning : Fine airborne particles are associated with adverse health effects in the human population. The aim of this research was to develop and evaluate methods for in-situ characterisation of fine and ultrafine particles and to determine their deposition in the human airways. LÄS MER
