    Sammanfattning : The oldest-old (people aged 80 or older) constituted 5 % of the population in Sweden in 2000, an increase from 1.5 % fifty years earlier. The immune system undergoes dramatic changes at high age, sometimes referred to as “immunosenescence”. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Herpesvirus Infection and Immunity in Neurocognitive Disorders

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Gabriel Westman; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer s disease; Herpes simplex encephalitis; Herpesvirus; Cytomegalovirus; CMV; HSV-1; HHV-6; CD8 T-cells; Cellular immunity; Immunosenescence; Autoimmunity; NMDA receptor; Medical Science; Medicinsk vetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Herpesviruses have co-speciated with several vertebrate and invertebrate animals throughout the history of evolution. In the immunocompetent human host, primary infection is usually benign, whereafter the virus is brought into life-long latency. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Recipient and Donor Characteristics - Impact on Outcome after Heart Transplantation

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Henrik Bergenfeldt; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heart Transplantation;

    Sammanfattning : Heart transplantation (HTx) is severely limited by a shortage of donors. This thesis aimed to investigate the effect of variables used to match donors to recipients in HTx. Methods: Data from the ISHLT registry was used to study: I: Identical versus compatible non-identical ABOmatching in 3,589 AB HTx recipients. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Towards understanding of Human Cytomegalovirus in Glioblastoma

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

    Författare :Olesja Fornara; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is a widely prevalent herpesvirus. Following an active primary infection, often asymptomatic or subclinical in immunocompetent individuals, the virus establishes latency. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Post-zygotic Genetic Variation in Health and Disease

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Hamid Reza Razzaghian; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Post-zygotic genetic variation; monozygotic twins; copy number variation; single nucleotide polymorphism; variable number tandem repeat; Medical Genetics; Medicinsk genetik;

    Sammanfattning : Post-zygotic genetic variation has previously been shown in healthy individuals and linked to various disorders. The definition of post-zygotic or somatic variation is the existence of genetically distinct populations of cells in a subject derived from a single zygote. LÄS MER
