  1. 1. Polyunsaturated fatty acids and allergy development

    Författare :Sara Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; DTH; IgE; fish oil; farming; atopy; butter; allergy; saturated fat; fatty acids; polyunsaturated fatty acids; breast milk; margarine; serum; cord blood;

    Sammanfattning : Allergies have increased strikingly in the affluent parts of the world during the last century. The cause of the rapid increase is unknown but several risk factors have been postulated, the main ones relating to reduced microbial exposures and changed diet. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Pathogenesis and treatment of chemical-induced lung injury

    Författare :Elisabeth Wigenstam; Anders Bucht; Thomas Sandström; Kjell Larsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chemical-induced lung injury; dexamethasone; melphalan; vitamin E; respiratory mechanics; lungmedicin; Lung Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Inhalation of chemical substances can cause irritation to airways and in high doses acute airway injury. When mice are exposed to the alkylating nitrogen mustard analogue melphalan they develop an acute airway inflammation with a rapid influx of neutrophils to the lungs. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Midkine - a host defence protein

    Författare :Sara Nordin; allergologi och palliativ medicin Lungmedicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Antimicrobial polypeptides; Midkine; antibacterial; antifungal; innate immunity; epithelial surfaces;

    Sammanfattning : Every day we encounter many potentially harmful microbes in our environment. The epithelial linings constitute an anatomical barrier protecting us and they also produce antimicrobial polypeptides (AMPs) that act as a chemical barrier. These AMPs are small and positively charged, killing a broad range of microbes rapidly. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Relationship between chemical structure and airway sensitizing potential for organic acid anhydrides : an animal model

    Författare :Xing-Dong Zhang; Avdelningen för arbets- och miljömedicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; sensitization; immunization; predictive testing; low-molecular-weight chemicals; chemical respiratory allergy; hypersensitivity; rats; guinea pigs; structure-activity-relationship; occupational asthma; organic acid anhydrides; IgG1; IgE; Occupational health; industrial medicine; Yrkesmedicin; arbetsmiljömedicin;

    Sammanfattning : Oranic acid anhydrides (OAAs) are important reactive, low-molecular-weight industrial chemicals which induce allergic rhinitis and asthma in exposed subjects. Specific IgE has been demonstrated in a large proportion of OAA-exposed workers. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Chemical and Clinical Studies of Isocyanate Contact Allergy with focus on diphenylmethane diisocyanate

    Författare :Malin Engfeldt; Yrkes- och miljödermatologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; venereologi; Dermatologi; venereology; Dermatology; occupational; allergic contact dermatitis; polyurethane;

    Sammanfattning : Isocyanates are highly reactive compounds used in the production of polyurethane. Exposure to isocyanates is mainly associated with respiratory disorders, but may also result in allergic contact dermatitis. Reports describing contact allergy to isocyanates are few in number and it has been considered a rare phenomenon. LÄS MER
