Sammanfattning : Always in motion and probing for danger, complement proteins are found in every space and notch of the body. Their omnipresence combined with an ability to wreak havoc when activated, mandates a strong leash! The how, when, and where to unleash or constrain the complement response remain partly answered questions, despite the significant progress made in the field in the past 100 years. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : Complement activation occurs during inflammatory joint diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and is thought to contribute to the chronic inflammation observed within the joints. Previous studies have shown that certain cartilage components of the small leucine-rich repeat protein (SLRP)-family regulate complement activity, thereby possibly contributing to disease progression.

Sammanfattning : In this thesis, the biochemical mechanisms for complement activation by endogenous proteins are explored. The short leucine-rich repeat proteins (SLRPs) help organise extracellular matrices. We found that several SLRPs bind C1q and of these, fibromodulin and osteoadherin trigger complement. LÄS MER
4. Studies of the pathogenesis of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli-induced hemolytic uremic syndromeDetta är en avhandling från Paediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University
Sammanfattning : Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is characterized by non-immune hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia and acute kidney failure. The most common form of HUS is associated with gastrointestinal Shiga toxin-producing enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) infection. EHEC are non-invasive strains with Shiga toxin as the unique virulence factor. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : Haemophilus influenzae is a human specific Gram-negative respiratory tract pathogen. Encapsulated H. influenzae strains exist in six different serotypes a-f, of which type b (Hib) is the most virulent. Hib is protected by the polysaccharide capsule when invading the blood circulaton and may cause diseases such as meningitis and epiglottitis. LÄS MER
