  1. 1. Immune Complex Regulated Cytokine Production in Rheumatic and Lymphoproliferative Diseases

    Författare :Linda Mathsson; Johan Rönnelid; Bo Nilsson; Ann Kari Lefvert; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Immunology; Immune complex; Cytokines; Rheumatic diseases; Lymphoproliferative diseases; Immunologi;

    Sammanfattning : Immune complexes (ICs) are produced during normal immune responses and facilitate clearance of foreign antigens. ICs not efficiently cleared from the circulation can cause tissue damage. This might happen if ICs are formed with autoantibodies and autoantigens. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Disease impact and quality of life in rheumatic diseases

    Sammanfattning : Patients with rheumatic diseases are restrained in their activities of daily living by pain, fatigue and decreased mobility and range of motion. Even with equal severity and activity of disease the perceived health status and quality of life may differ. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Understanding inflammatory mechanisms in rheumatic diseases

    Författare :Ia Khmaladze; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Psoriasis (Ps) and Psoriasis arthritis (PsA) are chronic inflammatory autoimmune disorders, where primary targets are peripheral joints, skin and skin/joints respectively. Both innate and adaptive immunity play a role in disease initiation and progression. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Health promoting factors in people with chronic musculoskeletal pain or with rheumatic diseases: a descriptive and interventional study

    Författare :Susann Arvidsson; Bengt Fridlund; Stefan Bergman; Barbro Arvidsson; Birgitta Klang Söderkvist; Jönköping University; []

    Sammanfattning : Aim: The overall aim of this thesis with a salutogenic approach was to describe health promoting factors in people with chronic musculoskeletal pain and in people with rheumatic diseases, and to evaluate the effects of an intervention study with a self-care promoting PBL-program for people with rheumatic diseases having chronic musculoskeletal pain, sleep disturbances and/or fatigue. Methods: This thesis is comprised of four samples: a randomly selected sample from a Swedish general population (study I) and three different samples containing people with rheumatic diseases registered at a hospital for rheumatic diseases in the southwest of Sweden (studies II, III and IV).
