  1. 1. THE ROLE OF DENDRITIC CELLS AND TYPE I INTERFERON IN THE GENERATION AND FUNCTION OF T FOLLICULAR HELPER CELLS

    Detta är en avhandling från Section for Immunology, Lund University

    Författare :Helena Cucak; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; T follicular helper cells; Type I interferon; Dendritic cells;

    Sammanfattning : Generation of long-lived plasma cells and memory B cells of high affinity takes place in germinal centers and depends on help from a specialized CD4+ T cell subset termed T follicular helper (Tfh) cells. These processes are crucial for long-term protection upon natural infection or in settings of vaccination, however they are also responsible for development of antibody-mediated autoimmune disease.

  2. 2. Human Dendritic Cells and the Regulation of Allergic Immune Responses

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Immunotechnology, Lund University

    Författare :Malin Lindstedt; [2005]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi; Immunology; allergic rhinitis; inflammation; transcriptional profiling; T cells; Dendritic cells; microarray;

    Sammanfattning : Dendritic cells (DC) are a heterogeneous lineage of bone-marrow-derived leukocytes that serve as the link between innate and adaptive immunity. They are professional antigen-presenting cells that play an important protective and regulatory role in both health and disease. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Mechanistic studies of the adjuvant effects of CTA1-DD and the native cholera toxin: Impact of cell targeting and tissue localization

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Johan Mattsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vaccines; adjuvants; cholera toxin; germinal center; CTA1-DD; follicular dendritic cells; denritic cells; Th1; Th2; Th17; complement;

    Sammanfattning : Vaccines are the most effective means of preventing infectious diseases and improving global health. However, few vaccines have successfully been developed for protection at mucosal surfaces where most pathogens gain access. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Regulation of the germinal center response by T follicular helper cells and type I interferons

    Detta är en avhandling från Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Författare :Madelene Dahlgren; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Germinal Center; T follicular helper cell; type I interferon; dendritic cell; adjuvant; differentiation; IgG;

    Sammanfattning : The protective effect of most currently available vaccines is dependent on high-affinity antibodies and long lived B cell memory, which develop within organized structures of secondary lymphoid organs called germinal centers (GCs). GC formation is supported by T follicular helper (Tfh) cells, a subset of CD4+ T cells that develop in parallel to other effector T cells and specifically localizes to B cell follicles. LÄS MER

  5. 5. IgG3 Complements IgM in the Complement-Mediated Regulation of Immune Responses

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Lu Zhang; Birgitta Heyman; Jenny Hallgren; Frida Henningsson; Kristina Lejon; [2017]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; IgG3; IgM; marginal zone B cells; follicular dendritic cells; complement receptors 1 and 2; C1q; C3; antigen transport; Immunologi; Immunology;

    Sammanfattning : An intact complement system is essential for the initiation of a normal antibody response. Antibodies can regulate their own production against the antigens that they are specific for. Both IgG3 and IgM are able to enhance the antibody response via complement. LÄS MER
