  1. 1. Early-life gut microbiota and breast milk oligosaccharides in relation to childhood immune maturation and allergy

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Wenner-Gren Institute for Experimental Biology, Stockholm University

    Författare :Ylva Margareta Sjögren; Stockholms universitet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; allergy; infant; gut microbiota; human milk oligosaccharides; Bifidobacterium; Lactobacillus; Bacteroides fragilis; Clostridium difficile; family size; secretory IgA; toll like receptor; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Immunology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Immunologi; Immunology; immunologi;

    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

  2. 2. Cytokine studies in the generation and treatment of IgE-mediated allergy

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Författare :Ankie Söderlund; Stockholms universitet.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cytokines; Hypersensitivity; Allergy; Allergi; immunologi; Immunology;

    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

  3. 3. Early childhood thymectomy - impact on immune function

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg

    Författare :Judith Gudmundsdottir; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunologi; Thymus; Pediatric cardiac surgery; Congenital heart defect;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction: The thymus is the site of T cell maturation. Children born with a congenital heart defect often endure surgery early in life, and during surgery their thymus is routinely removed, as it blocks the surgeons access to the heart. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Early infant gut flora and neutral oligosaccharides in colostrum in relation to allergy development in children

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Författare :Ylva Sjögren; Stockholms universitet.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Immunology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Immunologi;

    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

  5. 5. Cholera toxin B subunit as a carrier for inducing mucosal immunity and/or peripheral tolerance

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg

    Författare :Carola Rask; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mucosal immunity; tolerance; atopic allergy; cholera toxin B subunit; antibody response; IgE;

    Sammanfattning : When an antigen is introduced via a mucosal route, either immunity or tolerance, or even both may be induced. Both immunity and tolerance are actively induced phenomena and both of them could have important medical implications as well as potential prophylactic or therapeutic applications. LÄS MER
