1. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) and inflammatory bone modeling
Sammanfattning : Patients with inflammatory or infectious conditions such as periodontitis, peri-implantitis, osteomyelitis, rheumatoid arthritis, septic arthritis and loosened joint prosthesis display varying severity of destruction in the adjacent bone tissue. Bone loss in inflammatory diseases is considered a consequence of cytokine induced RANKL and subsequent enhanced osteoclast formation. LÄS MER
2. Developing brain and systemic inflammation: a "Toll-like" link with consequences
Sammanfattning : The developing brain is vulnerable to external insults, and perinatal brain injury (PBI) is a major cause of life-long neurological syndromes such as cerebral palsy. Currently, no pharmaceutical intervention is available. Hypoxia/ischemia (HI), infections and inflammation are implicated in the pathogenesis of PBI. LÄS MER
3. Toll-like receptor activation induced changes in dendritic cells
Sammanfattning : Dendritic cells (DC) are professional antigen-presenting cells that act as a “bridge” between innate and adaptive immunity by the induction and subsequent orchestration of immune responses. The ligation of Toll-like receptors (TLR) and other innate receptors on DC determines their immune-stimulating capacity. LÄS MER
4. Role of Toll-like receptors in airway inflammation
Sammanfattning : Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are germline-encoded pathogen-recognition receptors that detect different microbial structures and activate the immune system. The human TLR family presently comprises ten members (TLR1-TLR10), each with distinct properties. LÄS MER
5. Platelets in inflammation : Role of complement protein C1q, C-reactive proteinand toll-like receptors
Sammanfattning : Platelets are proven essential in haemostasis, however, they are now also increasingly recognized as cells with important immunomodulatory properties, e.g. through interaction with leukocytes and several species of bacteria and by release inflammatory mediators upon activation.
