1. In Vitro Studies of Factors Potentially Affecting Plasmodium Falciparum Infection : (Heparin and Anti-P. falciparum Immune Responses)
Sammanfattning : Plasmodium falciparum malaria is considered one of the major infectious diseases in humans, with regard to mortality and morbidity. Growing resistance of malaria to most anti-malaria drugs and of the Anopheles mosquitoes to insecticides have resulted in a global resurgence of the disease. LÄS MER

3. Maternal immune characteristics and innate immune responses in the child in relation to allergic disease
Sammanfattning : The mechanistic factors responsible for the increase in allergic diseases are still not fully understood, but a reduced microbial stimulation seems to be one of the key issues. Research is now aiming at investigating the relationship between the innate immune system, involving the toll-like receptors, and allergy development. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Malaria remains a challenging health problem in malaria endemic regions. Infection with malaria invariably leads to anaemia. The groups at risk of developing malarial anaemia include children below the age of five years and pregnant women, especially primigravidae. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The maternal immune system must be able to adjust during pregnancy and accept the foetus that expresses paternal antigens. These changes are found both in placenta and circulation, including a mild inflammatory response. NK cells are abundant during the early part of pregnancy in placenta and are thought to be important for placental development. LÄS MER
