Sammanfattning : The role of cellular immune responses in the control of Parvovirus B19 (B19) infection has not previously been investigated. B19 does not normally cause severe clinical problems but complications may arise in immunosuppressed patients and pregnant women. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Human parvovirus B19 (B19) causes erythema infectiosum, a limited disease of childhood also known as the fifth disease or slapped cheek syndrome, referring to the characteristic facial rash.

Sammanfattning : Human parvovirus B19 (B19) causes the common childhood disease erythema infectiosum. The virus is transmitted by the respiratory route, infects erythroid progenitor cells, and thereby inhibits erythropoiesis. The seroprevalence in the adult population is 50-70%, rising to over 80% among the elderly. LÄS MER

5. On the etiology and pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus with special reference to environmental factors
Sammanfattning : Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a complex autoimmune disease in which environmental factors interact with genetic factors in the development of the disease process and evolution of clinical manifestations. In this thesis both exogenous factors and host factors were investigated, as well as important immunopathological aspects including involvement of immune complex (IC), the complement system and interferon-alpha (IFN-α).
