  1. 1. Haematopoietic Serine Proteases A Cleavage Specificity Analysis

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Michael Thorpe; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mast cell; cleavage specificity; phage display; chymase; serine protease; granzyme; fish protease;

    Sammanfattning : Mast cells are innate immune cells, historically involved in allergy responses involving IgE. Through this, they have earned a reputation as a fairly detrimental cell type. Their beneficial roles remain somewhat enigmatic although they clearly have the ability to modulate the immune system. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Islet xenotransplantation : An immunological study in the pig-to-mouse model

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Birgitta Benda; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; xenotransplantation; porcine; islet; in vivo; knock-out mouse; immunohistochemistry; CsA; MDL 201; 449A; Ig; FcR; IL-6; perforin; granzyme B; macrophage; eosinophilic granulocyte; T cell; TCR; IFN- g; TNF- a; IL-2; Onkologi; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi; Clinical Immunology; klinisk immunologi;

    Sammanfattning : Successful clinical xenotransplantation, i.e., transplantation between species, would eliminate the shortage of donor organs. In order to study the acute cellular rejection reaction following discordant xenogeneic transplantation, an experimental pig-to- mouse islet xenotransplantation model was established. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Modulation of tumor sensitivity to effector mechanisms of cytotoxic lymphocytes

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Oncology-Pathology

    Författare :Kristian Hallermalm; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Tumor escape; cytotoxic lymphocytes; interferon-gamma; TNF-alpha; granzyme B; Perforin; Fas ligand;

    Sammanfattning : Today, ample evidence demonstrates a clear role for the immune system in the battle against cancer. However, the relatively high rate of mutation and proliferation of tumor cells, in combination with the selective pressure exerted by the immune system, can potentially lead to the generation of genetically altered tumor cells, which are able to evade recognition by the immune system and continue to grow and form tumors.

  4. 4. Resident T cells in human skin : functional heterogeneity and clinical implications

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Författare :Stanley Sing Hoi Cheuk; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : The skin forms a critical barrier against the external environment and is therefore frequently challenged by infections and subjected to immune-mediated diseases as well as malignancies. The Tissue-Resident Memory T (TRM) cell is a subset of T cells that resides at sites of previous infection in the skin and other epithelial tissues. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Approaches to analyses of cytotoxic cells. And studies of their role in H. pylori infection

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Författare :Josef Azem; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Helicobacter pylori; mucosal immunology; stomach; duodenum; asymptomatic; duodenal ulcer; gastric adenocarcinoma; NK cells; T cells; B cells; dendritic cells; cytotoxic;

    Sammanfattning : Helicobacter pylori infection causes chronic gastritis that may progress to peptic ulcers or gastric adenocarcinoma and thereby cause major world-wide health problems. Previous studies have shown that CD4+ T cells and the production of the cytokine IFN- × are important components of the immune response to H. pylori in humans. LÄS MER
