  1. 1. Production of polyclonal antibodies in rabbits and chickens immunised with human immunoglobulin G : A study of the utility of egg yolk antibody production as a substitute for rabbit serum antibody production

    Sammanfattning : The utility of chicken egg yolk antibodies as an alternative to rabbit antisera was studied by comparing antibody and avidity development in immunised animals (15 rabbits and 30 chickens) during a one-year immunisation scheme. Human IgG was used as the model antigen and the efficacy of three adjuvants, Freund's Complete Adjuvant, Freund's Incomplete Adjuvant and Hunter's TiterMax, was compared. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Human papillomavirus (HPV) type 16 is the major cause of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and anogenital cancers. The antibody response to papillomaviruses is a key determinant of protective immunity and forms the basis for prophylactic vaccine development as well as for seroepidemiology. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Immune reconstitution after childhood leukemia. Aspects on immunizations and effects of Ara-C on the innate immune system

    Författare :Torben Ek; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :acute lymphoblastic leukemia; immune reconstitution; immunization; antibody; avidity; ara-C; fever; cytokines;

    Sammanfattning : Children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) can be cured with cytotoxic chemotherapy, but myelosuppression and immunosuppression are major side effects causing morbidity and even mortality from infections. Vaccinations with diphtheria toxoid (DT), tetanus toxoid (TT) and protein conjugated Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib) capsular polysaccharide were used to investigate the adaptive immune system in a controlled study of 31 children after treatment for ALL.

  4. 4. Studies on the humoral immune response in nervous system infections with special reference of facial palsy and lyme borreliosis

    Författare :Magnus Roberg; Göran Stiernstedt; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is mainly based on studies of the humoral immune response in subjects with neurological infections with special reference to facial palsy and Lyme borreliosis. Cerebrospinal fluid and/or serum samples from a total of 281 patients were investigated. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Diagnosis of infection with Toxoplasma gondii in pregnant women, neonates and immunocompromised patients

    Författare :Eskild Petersen; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Infection with Toxoplasma gondii poses unique diagnostic problems like long-term persistence of specific IgM-antibodies, which makes it difficult to use the presence of Toxoplasma-specific IgM-antibodies alone as a sign of acute infection. The importance of determining the time of infection in pregnant women is also a unique diagnostic challenge in Toxoplasma diagnostics. LÄS MER
