    Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns the investigation of novel immunotherapies for cancer eradication. CpG therapy was used in order to target antigen-presenting cells (APCs), facilitating antigen presentation and activation of T cells. LÄS MER

  2. 2. CTLA-4 expression, regulation and associations in autoimmune myasthenia gravis

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine

    Författare :XiongBiao Wang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cytotoxic-T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 CTLA-4 ; Myasthenia gravis MG ; Immune inhibitory receptor; Autoimmune disease; Genetic polymorphism.;

    Sammanfattning : Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a neuromuscular disease with muscle weakness due to an autoimmune attack against the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) on the skeletal muscle endplate. Cytotoxic-T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 (CTLA-4) plays a global inhibitory role in the immune system and has a crucial role in autoimmunity. LÄS MER

  3. 3. FOXP3 and CTLA-4 : how isoforms regulate immunological tolerance

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Författare :Sang Liu; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : The maintenance of immunological tolerance is vital for preventing the immune system to damage normal tissues and physiological function of the body. CD4+FOXP3+ regulatory T (Treg) cells can suppress immune responses in a dominant manner and are essential for immunological tolerance. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The role of CTLA-4 in health and autoimmune disease

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics

    Författare :Katrin Klocke; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : FOXP3+ regulatory T (Treg) cells are powerful regulators of the immune system, as shown by the development of multi-organ autoimmunity in mice and men upon loss or dysfunction of these cells. Whilst Treg cells are vital to control normal immune responses, they are also involved in the development of autoimmunity and the failure to combat cancer. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Genetic studies of diabetes in northern Sweden

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Medicinsk biovetenskap

    Författare :Sofia Mayans; Dan Holmberg; Mats Eliasson; Outi Vaarala; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Diabetes; families; genetic; association; SNP; linkage; TCF7L2; CTLA-4; Calpain-10; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Clinical genetics Medical genetics; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Klinisk genetik Medicinsk genetik;

    Sammanfattning : Diabetes mellitus represents a group of metabolic disorders caused by both environmental and genetic factors. The two most common forms of diabetes are type 2 diabetes (T2D) and type 1 diabetes (T1D). T2D is associated with obesity and the disease is caused by insulin resistance and pancreatic b-cell dysfunction. LÄS MER
