Sammanfattning : Pathogenic mechanisms responsible for tonsillar hypertrophy (TH) in children sufferingfrom obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) were studied and compared with childrenwith recurrent tonsillitis (RT) and infectious mononucleosis (IM), respectively.In an initial study the clinical consequences of OSAS caused by TH was investigated.

3. Starch Microparticles as an Oral Vaccine Adjuvant with Emphasis on the Differentiation of the Immune Response
Sammanfattning : Polyacryl starch microparticles have been developed as an oral vaccine adjuvant capable of inducing strong local and systemic immune responses in mice. In this thesis, the starch microparticles were studied in order to increase basic understanding of their function. LÄS MER
4. Inflammatory Reactions in Peritonitis and Malignant Obstructive Jaundice : Clinical and Experimental Studies with Special Emphasis on the Cellular Immune Response
Sammanfattning : Patients with peritonitis or malignant obstructive jaundice (HPB+) have an increased morbidity and mortality due to sepsis. An altered cell-mediated immunity in the intestinal mucosa might promote gut barrier failure, increased endotoxin and cytokine release and bacterial translocation (BT) in these conditions. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : When an antigen is introduced via a mucosal route, either immunity or tolerance, or even both may be induced. Both immunity and tolerance are actively induced phenomena and both of them could have important medical implications as well as potential prophylactic or therapeutic applications. LÄS MER
