    Sammanfattning : Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a respiratory disease characterized by chronic inflammatory response in the airways and lung parenchyma that involves the influx of inflammatory, structural cells and mediators. The inflammatory process resulting in lung tissue destruction, emphysema, includes the excess of uninhibited proteases released from inflammatory cells. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Multifunctional roles of plasmin in inflammation : Studies of animal models on rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, wound healing and infection

    Författare :Jinan Li; Peter Carmeliet; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Plasmin; complement; inflammation; wound healing; infection; autoimmune disease; non-autoimmune disease; rheumatoid arthritis; multiple sclerosis; tympanic membrane; otitis media; medicinsk biokemi; Medical Biochemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Plasmin has been suggested to be involved in degradation of extracellular matrix (ECM) and tissue remodeling during a number of physiological and pathological processes. The aims of this thesis were to study the functional roles of plasmin during pathological inflammation in autoimmune and nonautoimmune disease models of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), multiple sclerosis (MS), wound healing and infection.

    Sammanfattning : Background: Pro-inflammatory mediators have been implicated in processes that could be both beneficial and toxic to cells in the brain. On the one hand balanced levels of these mediators favour e.g. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The Role of Reactive Oxygen Species in Animal Models of Autoimmunity

    Författare :Malin Hultqvist; Immunologi; []
