Sammanfattning : Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a widespread infection affecting 50-90% of the human population. A typical silent primary infection is followed by life-long persistence in the host under control by virus-specific CD8 (“killer”) and CD4 (“helper”) T cells. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is a member of the herpes virus family. HCMV is a ubiquitous pathogen, causing severe morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients, and is a major factor in congenital birth defects. LÄS MER
3. Cytomegalovirus Infection in Immunocompetent and Renal Transplant Patients : Clinical Aspects and T-cell Specific Immunity
Sammanfattning : Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a β-herpesvirus that, after primary infection, establishes a life-long persistence in the human host. Up to 90% of humans are infected with CMV, that is kept under control by CMV-specific CD8+ and CD4+ T cells. In patients with an impaired cellular immunity, however, CMV infections can be life-threatening. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is a widely prevalent herpesvirus. Following an active primary infection, often asymptomatic or subclinical in immunocompetent individuals, the virus establishes latency. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Abstract Herpesvirus infections are common and can cause serious and life-threatening conditions in transplanted individuals. In this thesis, consisting of 4 papers (I-IV), we investigated primary infection and reactivation of Cytomegalovirus (CMV), Human Herpesvirus type 6 (HHV-6), Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) and Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) in transplant patients.
