  1. 1. Immunological aspects on cystic fibrosis lung disease

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University

    Författare :Malin Carlsson; [2007]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; transplantation; Immunology; serology; pyocyanin; mannan binding lectin; Pseudomonas aeruginosa; ANCA; Cystic fibrosis; bactericidal permeability increasing protein; Immunologi; serologi;

    Sammanfattning : In cystic fibrosis (CF) colonization of the airways with Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a major cause of deterioration and death. Host defence fails to clear the invading bacteria, which results in a chronic destructive inflammatory process. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Recognition molecules of the complement system: C1q and mannan-binding lectin in autoimmunity and immune defence

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Författare :Ulla Mårtensson; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; transplantation; serologi; Immunologi; Immunology; serology; autoantibodies; collectins; complement; autoimmunity; Infections; Infektioner;

    Sammanfattning : The C1 subcomponent C1q and the mannan-binding lectin (MBL) are recognition proteins of the complement system, and have similar structure. C1q binds to IgG and IgM and activates the classical pathway. MBL binds to carbohydrate structures and activates the lectin pathway. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Complement-dependent defence against bacterial infection. Studies in C2 deficiency

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Författare :Barbro Selander; [2001]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; antibody responses; polysaccharide antigens; vaccination; mannan-binding lectin MBL ; complement; C2 deficiency; Immunology; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi;

    Sammanfattning : The complement system is critically involved in defence against bacterial infection. C2 deficiency is, apart from mannan-binding lectin (MBL) deficiency, the most common homozygous complement deficiency among Caucasians. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Studies on hereditary C2 deficiency: Frequent occurrence of severe infections, atherosclerosis and rheumatological manifestations

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Författare :Göran Jönsson; [2007]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; transplantation; serology; Immunology; mykologi; bakteriologi; virologi; Mikrobiologi; mycology; Complement; Complement C2 deficiency; Infectious diseases; Atherosclerosis; SLE; Autoantibodies; GM allotypes; Immunodeficiency state; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Medicin människa och djur ; Microbiology; virology; bacteriology; Immunologi; serologi; Infections; Infektioner;

    Sammanfattning : The complement system is a part of the innate immunity and is essential in the defence against microorganisms. Hereditary C2 deficiency (C2D) is one of the most common complement deficiency states with an estimated prevalence of 1:20,000 in persons of Western descent. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Complement aberrations and autoantibodies to complement proteins in relation to disease mechanisms

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Författare :Lillemor Melander Skattum; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; C3 nephritic factors; GM allotypes; C1q autoantibodies; serum bactericidal activity; Neisseria meningitidis; idiopathic sudden hearing loss; complement; Acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis;

    Sammanfattning : The complement system, a part of the innate immune system with several links to the adaptive immune system, plays an important role in the pathogenesis of many diseases. The purpose of this thesis was to document and clarify some of these mechanisms. The thesis is based on four papers (I-IV). LÄS MER
