Sammanfattning : Trypanosoma cruzi, the causative agent of Chagas´ disease, is an evolutionarily ancient species with distinct biological and immunological characteristics. A fundamental understanding of the basic biology of the parasite is necessary in order to develop reliable therapeutic and prophylactic agents against T. cruzi. We have, as a part of the T. LÄS MER

3. Genetic Characterisation of Human ABO Blood Group Variants with a Focus on Subgroups and Hybrid Alleles
Sammanfattning : ABO is the most important blood group system in transfusion medicine and transplantation immunology. The ABO blood groups differ by the presence or absence of antigens on RBCs and antibodies in plasma. Accurate determination of ABO status is critical. Genomic typing can increase the precision of blood group determination in complicated cases, e. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Developments within the field of genetic analysis have during the last decade become enormous. Advances in DNA sequencing technology have increased throughput from a thousand bases to over a billion bases in a day and decreased the cost thousandfold per base. LÄS MER
5. Infections with HIV-1 and mycobacterium tuberculosis : The role of HLA class II alleles and HIV phenotypes
Sammanfattning : Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.tb), are the two infectious diseases causing the greatest number of deaths globally. The burden of these infections is most felt in the developing world particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. This is also a region where some of the studies in this thesis were conducted. LÄS MER
