  1. 1. Rules of engagement - Regulation of complement response in tissue

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Anas Haider Abu-Humaidan; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2018]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Complement system; Complement activation; Complement regulation; terminal complement complex; Staphylococcus auereus; atopic dermatitis; head and neck cancer; epidermal growth factor receptor; EGFR;

    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

  2. 2. Complement in Disease - Extracellular Proteins as Complement Regulators

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Författare :Kaisa Happonen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rheumatoid arthritis; joint disease; Complement; proteoglycan; cancer;

    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.

  3. 3. Novel endogenous mechanisms of complement regulation - A delicate balance

    Detta är en avhandling från Clinical Chemistry, Malmö

    Författare :Andreas Holmér; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; short leucine rich glycoprotein; factor H; C1q; age-related macular degeneration; C4b-binding protein; prion disease; prion protein; Complement regulation; C-reactive protein;

    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. 4. Studies of the pathogenesis of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli-induced hemolytic uremic syndrome

    Detta är en avhandling från Paediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Författare :Ida Arvidsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; EHEC; hemolytic uremic syndrome; Shiga toxin; complement; hemolysis; microvesicles; cathelicidin;

    Sammanfattning : Popular Abstract in Swedish Enterohemorragisk Escherichia coli (EHEC) EHEC är mycket virulent för människor, det räcker med så få som 50-100 bakterier för att man ska bli infekterad och utveckla symtom. Varje år rapporteras ca 300-500 fall av EHEC smitta i Sverige. Den stam som oftast isoleras från patienter är E. coli O157:H7. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Haemophilus influenzae adhesins and the innate immune response

    Detta är en avhandling från Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Författare :Elena Ronander; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; inflammation; Haemophilus influenzae; Haemophilus surface fibrils; complement; innate immune response; protein E; respiratory epithelium; adhesins;

    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
