  1. 1. Function of granulocytes after burns and trauma, associations with pulmonary vascular permeability, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and immunomodulation

    Författare :Joakim Johansson; Folke Sjöberg; Lennart Lindbom; Sven-Erik Ricksten; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ARDS; azurocidin; burn; CAP-37; critical care; granulocyte; HBP; histamine; intensive care; leucocyte; leukocyte; mediator; methylhistamine; MOF; oedema; neutrophil; permeability; PMN; trauma; vascular permeability;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Our innate immunesystem protects us from infections but, since its methods is not all specific for microorganisms, may also induce collateral damage.Severe physical injury often proved deadly throughout evolution. Such injuries may induce massive collateral damage. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The importance of monocyte and granulocyte activation in rheumatoid arthritis and primary Sjögren's syndrome

    Författare :Ingunn Torsteinsdóttir; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Medical sciences; Rheumatoid arthritis; primary Sjögren s syndrome; peripheral blood; monocyte; macrophage; neutrophil; eosinophil; adhesion; phagocytosis; respiratory burst; CRP; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : Macrophages and neutrophils infiltrate the synovium and synovial fluid in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). These cells are considered to contribute to the destructive process in RA.The expression of adhesion and phagocytosis receptors on the surface of peripheral granulocytes and monocytes was increased in patients with RA.

  3. 3. Regulation of neutrophil apoptosis

    Författare :Maria Alvarado-Kristensson; Malmö Molekylär patologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; General pathology; pathological anatomy; Patologi allmän ; patologisk anatomi; PP2A; p38 MAPK; caspases; signal transduction; inflammation; Apoptosis; human neutrophils;

    Sammanfattning : The human neutrophil is the most abundant granulocyte and the major type of cell involved in an acute inflammatory response. Neutrophils are armed with various systems of enzymes, that can find and kill pathogens, but unfortunately, these "weapons" cannot distinguish between the host tissues and the "invaders. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The role of granulocyte antibodies in monocyte and granulocyte activation

    Författare :Agneta Wikman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ANCA; adhesion molecules; CD11b; CD62L; granulocyte antibodies; granulocytes; monocytes; systemic vasculitis;

    Sammanfattning : Granulocytes and monocytes are important cells during the first phase of inflammation. They are activated and recruited from the blood vessels to inflammatory sites via the regulation of receptors involved in adhesion to endothelium. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Adenosine Regulation of Neutrophil Function

    Författare :Stefan Zalavary; Bertil Fredholm; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The neutrophil granulocyte is an essential component of the human immune system. When rrricrobes invade the body, the highly motile neutrophils quickly leave the vascular compartment and approach, engulf and kill the intruders by releasing a battery of antimicrobial substances.
