Photocontact allergy to topically applied ketoprofen has been the most frequent side effect of the formulation, and is fairly well studied. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Autoantigenic properties of the U1-70K protein Elisabet Welin Henriksson Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Medical Nobel Institute, Karolinska Institutet, S-171 77 Stockholm, Sweden Patients with the autoimmune diseases systemic lupus erythematosus and mixed connectivetissue disease produce autoantibodies directed towards specific groups of cellularconstituents in their own body. Two of the targeted antigens are denoted Sm and RNP,and consist of distinct collections of splicing associated RNA-protein complexes. LÄS MER
3. Reactive arthritis : The human antibody responce elicited by Yersinia enterocolitica and Clamydia trachomatis
Sammanfattning : A central issue in the pathogenesis of reactive arthritis (ReA) is whether or not individuals developing arthritis have an aberrant immune response to individual antigens of potential triggering microorganisms. Although evidence exists that Yersinia and Chlamydia are two agents that precipitate ReA it has not been shown that these pathogens share common antigens. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Doctoral Dissertation 1997 Division of Medical Cell Biology Clinical Research Center Karolinska Institutet Huddinge Hospital, Novum S-141 86 Huddinge, Sweden Abstlact Glutathione transferases (GST) alpha and pi were purified to homogeneity and used to develop immunochemical methods for analysis of the amount of these proteins in human urine. The methods were employed for diagnosis of renal dysfunctions caused by drugs and industrial chemicals. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Immune complexes (IC) have key pathological roles in both autoimmune and infectious diseases. In this thesis functional mechanisms behind IC-driven inflammation in rheumatic diseases and tropical infections have been studied, with special focus on the contribution of autoantibodies and cytokine-inducing properties of IC.
