Sammanfattning : The main focus of this thesis was to develop and utilise experimental models using the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi. We were especially interested in studying the activation of NK cells early after T. cruzi infection and what factors that predispose to a chronic inflammatory disease after T. cruzi infection.

Sammanfattning : Macrophages are dynamic, plastic, and heterogeneous immune cells that play an important role in host immune defense against bacterial infection. Various bacterial pathogens, such as Neisseria meningitidis and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, can modulate host immune responses by interfering with macrophage differentiation and polarization. LÄS MER
