Sammanfattning : So called Th2 cytokines, such as IL-4 and IL-13 are responsible for the formation of IgE antibodies, the effector antibody in atopic allergy. Cytokines of Th1 type, for example IFN-g, inhibit these responses. This thesis describes work aimed at elucidating the cytokine production underlying IgE-mediated allergy. LÄS MER
2. Early-life gut microbiota and breast milk oligosaccharides in relation to childhood immune maturation and allergy
Sammanfattning : Atopic allergy is the most common chronic disease among children in the developed world. This high prevalence could be associated with low microbial exposure. The early gut microbiota appears to be important for immune maturation. LÄS MER
3. Early infant gut flora and neutral oligosaccharides in colostrum in relation to allergy development in children
Sammanfattning : Today, atopic allergy is the most common chronic disease among children in the developed world. The increase in allergy prevalence during the past decades in these countries might be associated with lower microbial exposure. LÄS MER
4. Experimental and Clinical Studies of SLPI, with Special Reference to IgE-Mediated Allergic Reactions
Sammanfattning : In this study we demonstrated the production of SLPI (Secretory Leukocyte Protease Inhibitor) in serous glands in the nasal mucosa. We have shown that the pattern of the expression of mRNA corresponds to the encoded protein. The encoded protein was detected by immunohistochemical methods and mRNA was discovered by in situ hybridisation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Immunoglobulin E (IgE) occurs exclusively in mammals and is one of five immunoglobulin (Ig) classes found in man. Unlike other isotypes, IgE is best known for its pathological effects, whereas its physiological role remains somewhat elusive. LÄS MER
