  1. 1. Commensal microbes, immune reactivity and childhood inflammatory bowel disease

    Författare :Cecilia Barkman; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Inflammatory bowel disease; IBD; Pediatric; Childhood; Microbiota; T cells; B cells; cytokine; IL-12; monocytes; phagocytosis; intracellular signaling pathway; Crohn s disease; ulcerative colitis; children; flora;

    Sammanfattning : Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is characterized by chronic and relapsing intestinal inflammation of unknown etiology, but immune activation by the commensal microbiota probably plays a major role. The two major categories of IBD are ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Regulation of innate and adaptive immune responses by Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria

    Författare :Anna Martner; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Gram-positive; Gram-negative bacteria; Streptococcus pneumoniae; IL-12; autolysin; pneumolysin; CD4 T cells; monocytes macrophages; dendritic cells;

    Sammanfattning : Bacteria are classified as Gram-positive or Gram-negative, depending on their cell wall structure. The role of the bacterial cell wall in immune regulation is the focus of the current work. Most Gram-positive bacteria stimulate monocytes to produce large amounts of IL-12. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Gene therapy of neuroblastoma

    Författare :Yvonne Arvidsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuroblastoma; gene therapy; PNP; ASK1; MASH1; IL-12; GM-CSF; immunotherapy; apoptosis.;

    Sammanfattning : Aims: The survival of children with advanced stages of neuroblastoma has not improved significantly during recent years. Therefore additional treatments based on other modalities need to be developed. The objective of this thesis was to investigate the possibility to develop gene therapy of neuroblastoma. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Glucocorticosteroid effects on cytokine production: studies in a glucocorticosteroid resistance model and in allergic airway disease

    Författare :Susanne Larsson; Lund Lungmedicin och Allergologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; GM-CSF; cytokine; glucocorticoids; budesonide; IL-2; IL-4; IL-12; asthma; allergic rhinitis; allergic airway inflammation; Respiratory system; Andningsorganen;

    Sammanfattning : Glucocorticosteroids (GCS) are potent anti-inflammatory drugs, probably due to inhibitory effects on cytokine production. However, a small number of asthma patients seem GCS-resistant. Pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin-2(IL-2) and IL-4, produced during allergic airway inflammation have been proposed to induce the resistance to GCS. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Cytokines in Staphylococcus aureus arthritis. For better for worse

    Författare :Olof H. Hultgren; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Staphylococcus aureus; septic arthritis; sepsis; cytokines; IL-4; IL-12; TNF; LTa; IFN-g.;

    Sammanfattning : Septic arthritis is an inflammatory condition in joints caused by in situ residing bacteria accompanied by a septic reaction. Bacteria reach their target via the blood stream and the major human pathogen is Staphylococcus aureus. LÄS MER
