  1. 1. Host-Virus Interactions in Asthma and COPD

    Författare :Cristopher McCrae; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Asthma; COPD; Exacerbation; Virus; Interferon;

    Sammanfattning : Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are associated with periods of worsened symptoms, known as exacerbations. Severe exac-erbations can result in hospitalisation, irreversible decline of the disease and sometimes death. Thus, exacerbations are a major cause of morbidity, mortality and healthcare cost.

  2. 2. Development and evaluation of new generation vaccines against bovine respiratory syncytial virus

    Detta är en avhandling från ; Department of Clinical Sciences, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Författare :Krister Blodörn; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) is a major cause of respiratory disease in cattle worldwide. Improved BRSV vaccines are needed, with better efficacy and longer duration of protection, in particular when used in calves with specific maternally derived antibodies (MDA). LÄS MER

  3. 3. Acute febrile illness in preschool children in Zanzibar - Infectious aetiologies, diagnosis and treatment

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborgs universitet

    Författare :Kristina Elfving; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Children; Infections; Low-income country; Tanzania; malaria; pneumonia; antibiotics; fever; diagnosis; polymerase chain reaction; preschool; influenza virus; Respiratory syncytial virus; diarrhoea; norovirus; dengue virus;

    Sammanfattning : Background: A majority of the three million children in Africa that do not survive their fifth birthday die from infections that often start as a seemingly uncomplicated febrile illness. Primary health care workers frequently encounter febrile children with a negative malaria rapid diagnostic test (mRDT), in particular in places like Zanzibar with a considerable decline in malaria prevalence.

    Sammanfattning : Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) infection is common among young children. Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is a risk factor of severe illness and hospitalization. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Production and delivery of recombinant subunit vaccines

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Bioteknologi

    Författare :Christin Andersson; KTH.; [2000]
    Nyckelord :Affibody; Affinity chromatography; Affinity purification; DNA immunization; Expression plasmid; Fusion protein; Hydrophobic tag; Iscoms; Lipid tagging; Malaria; Mammalian cell expression; Recombinant immunogen; Respiratory Syncytial Virus; Semliki Fo;

    Sammanfattning : Recombinant strategies are today dominating in thedevelopment of modern subunit vaccines. This thesis describesstrategies for the production and recovery of protein subunitimmunogens, and how genetic design of the expression vectorscan be used to adapt the immunogens for incorporation intoadjuvant systems.
