1. Recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis - A study, with emphasis on host genetics, oral microbiota composition, and immunoregulatory networks
Sammanfattning : Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) is one of the most common oral mucosal lesions. The aetiology is unknown and currently there is no consensus regarding suitable treatment regimens. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Human oral epithelium is an established target for aldehyde toxicity, including from usage of tobacco, intake of foods and fluids, leaching of dental materials, and from mouth inhalation of aldehydes in the work environment. Following establishment of culture/exposure protocols for oral cell cultures, toxicity mechanisms and risk of malignant transformation from aldehyde exposure was investigated, including the metabolic defense offered by alcohol dehydrogenase 3 (ADH3) against formaldehyde toxicity.

3. Regulation of Tissue Factor and Coagulation Activity : Translation Studies with Focus on Platelet-Monocyte Aggregates and Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome
Sammanfattning : Myocardial infarction (MI) is often caused by a disruption of an atherosclerotic plaque with activation of coagulation, platelets and inflammation. The aims were; to investigate whether the oral direct thrombin inhibitor, ximelagatran affected markers for coagulation, platelet and inflammation in a patient cohort with recent MI and if the coagulation markers could identify patients with increased risk of new ischemic events; to evaluate some of the mechanisms involved in formation of platelet-monocyte aggregates (PMAs).

Sammanfattning : Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) transmission occurs primarily after hetero- and homosexual contact and across mucosal surfaces. The immune response in mucosal tissues is typified by secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA), which is the predominant lg class in human external secretions. LÄS MER
5. Genetic modification of cholera toxin B subunit for mucosal anti-infectious or anti-pathologic vaccination
Sammanfattning : The development of mucosal vaccines requires antigen delivery systems that can efficiently help to present vaccine antigens to the mucosal immune system. En efficient and well known antigen carrier/delivery system is the B subunit of cholera toxin (CTB). LÄS MER
