  1. 1. Biomarkers and mediators in systemic lupus erythematosus : IFNα versus the CRP response, and evaluation of suPAR and anti-dsDNA antibody assays

    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a heterogeneous autoimmune disease which may affect multiple organ systems. Interferon alpha (IFNα) and autoantibodies that form immune complexes with nuclear antigens (ANA) are hallmarks believed to drive the disease into a vicious circle of inflammation, tissue damage, autoantigen exposure and autoantibody production.

    Sammanfattning : Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune, inflammatory disease characterized by autoantibody production and an activated type I interferon system. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is as a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The aim of this thesis was to identify genetic risk factors for CVD in SLE. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : In systemic sclerosis (SSc), interstitial lung disease (ILD) and engagement of the vascular system lead to increased morbidity and mortality. The aim of this thesis was to elucidate, in a consecutively included cohort of SSc (limited and diffuse) patients (n = 33), the T cell cytokine profile driving the disease in ILD and to explore the role of matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9) and its inhibitor: tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase 1 (TIMP-1) in the extracellular matrix (ECM) degrading process leading to fibrous scarring and honey combing.
