6. Microbial and maternal influences on allergic sensitization during childhood: defining a role for monocytesDetta är en avhandling från Stockholm : The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University
Sammanfattning : Allergic diseases are influenced by genetics and the environment. Maternal allergy appears to confer a higher risk for allergic sensitization than paternal allergy, suggesting an in utero influence. LÄS MER
- Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)
Sammanfattning : The first contact between invading bacteria and the host occurs at the mucosal surface. Interestingly, the mucosal linings of different organs are exposed to bacteria to various degrees. LÄS MER
8. Cytokines and lipids in pregnancy – effects on developmental programming and placental nutrient transferDetta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)
Sammanfattning : Metabolic disturbances, in particular those associated with nutritional challenges, that take place during development, both in utero and early postnatal life, have long-lasting health consequences on an individual. The most pronounced evidence of these challenges is a deviation in birth weight. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : It has been known for a long time that the clinical manifestations of urinary tract infections (UTI) differ markedly between individuals, ranging from a sometimes beneficial, asymptomatic state to life threatening infections. This variability in clinical manifestation can be explained in part by the arsenal of virulence factors of the bacteria but the predisposition of the patient is equally important. LÄS MER
10. Preterm and term cervival ripening : Studies on CRH, HMGB1, toll-like receptors, cytokines and matrix metalloproteinasesDetta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Women's and Children's Health
Sammanfattning : Objective: Preterm birth (PTB) is the leading cause of neonatal mortality and morbidity. Despite the existing treatment, the frequency of PTB has not changed in the past thirty years. Incomplete understanding of the biological and pathophysiological mechanisms underlying preterm delivery is the major obstacle to preventing PTB. LÄS MER
