1. Should I stay or should I go – Factors associated with hospitalization risk among older persons in Sweden
Sammanfattning : An increasingly older population will most likely lead to greater demands on the health care system, as older age is associated with an increased risk of having acute and chronic conditions. The number of diseases or disabilities is not the only marker of the amount of health care utilized, as persons may seek hospitalization without a disease and/or illness that requires hospital healthcare.

2. Mast cells and their progenitors in respiratory diseases : Understanding their connection to lung function and airway inflammation
Sammanfattning : Mast cells are rare immune cells involved in allergic diseases, including asthma. These cells are derived from mast cell progenitors (MCps) that migrate to the peripheral tissues via the blood in response to allergic or non-allergic stimuli. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Antibodies passively administered together with their specific antigen can enhance or suppress the specific antibody response. This phenomenon is known as antibody feedback regulation. Whether this modulation causes up- or downregulation of the antibody response depends both on the antibody isotype and the antigen used.

Sammanfattning : Mast cell progenitors originate from the bone marrow and migrate to the lungs via the blood. During maturation, these cells acquire granules that contain a potent array of bronchoconstrictive mediators. LÄS MER
5. Harnessing the immunoregulatory capacity of single-stranded oligonucleotides to modulate innate immunity
Sammanfattning : As the first line of defense, the innate immune system is exceptionally efficacious against invading pathogens but must be tightly regulated to avoid immune-related pathogenesis. Accordingly, the innate immune system recognizes highly conserved components associated with infections and damaged cells using a limited number of pattern-recognition receptors (PRRs), which are differentially expressed across cell types.
