  1. 1. The complement system in stherosclerosis and arthritis

    Författare :Linda Persson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :complement; C3; factor B; ASP; atherosclerosis; hyperlipidemia; arthritis;

    Sammanfattning : The complement system plays an essential role in the humoral immune response. Activated complement has diverse functions, including the initiation of inflammation, recruitment of leukocytes, clearance of immune complexes, neutralization of pathogens, regulation of antibody responses and disruption of cell membranes.

  2. 2. Crosstalk Between Activated Platelets and the Complement System

    Författare :Osama A. Hamad; Bo Nilsson; Kristina Ekdahl-Nilsson; Lennart Truedsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; platelets; activated platelets; TRAP; chondroitin sulfate; C1q; factor H; C4BP; C3; Compstatin; complement; platelet-leukocyte complexes; platelet microparticles; Clinical immunology; Klinisk immunologi; Klinisk immunologi; Clinical Immunology;

    Sammanfattning : Several studies have shown that complement and thrombotic events co-exist. Platelets have been suspected to act as the bridge between the two cascade systems. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The role of the complement system in arthritis and stroke

    Författare :Max Albert Hietala; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :complement; C3; factor B; transgenic knockout; arthritis; focal cerebral ischemia;

    Sammanfattning : Complement is part of the innate immune system and functions primarily as a first line of defense against invading microorganisms. It is a complex cascade, which can be activated via three pathways: the classical, alternative and mannan-binding lectin pathway. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Analysis of Complement Deficiency States. With Focus on Molecular Characterization of C4 and Properdin Deficiency

    Författare :Gunilla Nordin Fredrikson; Kardiovaskulär forskning - immunitet och ateroskleros; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mycology; virology; bacteriology; Complement C4; Complement; Complement Screening; Deficiency; Meningococcal Disease; Properdin; Properdin Expression; Microbiology; Sequencing; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Sammanfattning : Complement deficiency is associated with an increased risk for invasive infection and immune complex disease. Screening for identification of complement-deficient patients is essential and a new ELISA-based procedure for detection of complement deficiency is described. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Complement in Disease - Extracellular Proteins as Complement Regulators

    Författare :Kaisa Happonen; Malmö Proteinkemi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rheumatoid arthritis; joint disease; Complement; proteoglycan; cancer;

    Sammanfattning : Complement activation occurs during inflammatory joint diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and is thought to contribute to the chronic inflammation observed within the joints. Previous studies have shown that certain cartilage components of the small leucine-rich repeat protein (SLRP)-family regulate complement activity, thereby possibly contributing to disease progression.
