  1. 1. Recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis - A study, with emphasis on host genetics, oral microbiota composition, and immunoregulatory networks

    Författare :Maria Bankvall; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Aphthous stomatitis; Oral mucosa; Oral medicine; Genome-wide association study; Genetic linkage; Association; Genetic polymorphism; Microbiota; Restriction fragment length polymorphism; Antigen-presenting cell; T-lymphocyte; Lymph node; Flow cytometry;

    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

  2. 2. Aldehyde toxicity in human oral epithelium

    Författare :Jan Anders Nilsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Oral epithelium; cell cultures; toxicity; transformation; aldehydes; thiols; ADH3;

    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. 3. Regulation of Tissue Factor and Coagulation Activity : Translation Studies with Focus on Platelet-Monocyte Aggregates and Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome

    Författare :Christina Christersson; Agneta Siegbahn; Lars Wallentin; Jonas Oldgren; Ingebjorg Seljeflot; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Internal medicine; Myocardial infarction; Coagulation; Platelet-monocyte aggregates; Tissue factor; Thrombin inhibition; Invärtesmedicin;

    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).

  4. 4. HIV induced humoral immune response with specific relevance to IgA

    Författare :Pia Skott; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; HIV; secretory lgA; neutralizing antibodies; mucosal immunity;

    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. 5. Genetic modification of cholera toxin B subunit for mucosal anti-infectious or anti-pathologic vaccination

    Författare :Hamid Sadeghi; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Genetic fusion protein; cholera toxin B subunit; insulin; GST; Oral tolerance;

    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
