Checkpoint Inhibitor Induced Colitis and Arthritis -Immunomodulation With IL-6 Blockade and Exploration of Disease Mechanisms

Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) might induce inflammatory potentially serious and even lethal immune related Adverse Events (irAEs). Diarrhea and/or colitis are ones of the most frequently reported irAEs in patients taking ICI. Although the immune mechanisms underlying irAEs have not been fully elucidated, studies suggest that Th17 and Tregs cells, increases in expression of immunologically-related genes, eosinophilia, microbiome among others and cytokines may be involved in...

Mast Cell Activation Test in Allergic Disease

Activation of mast cells in the immune system is known to cause allergic reactions sometimes with severe systemic symptoms. The investigators have recently developed a blood-based mast cell activation diagnostic test in which levels of functional activation in-vitro in primary cultured mast cells generated from the peripheral blood of single individuals can be assessed. It is the hypothesis that the test can be used to predict the potential state of in-vivo mast cell activation...

Changes in Adaptive Immune Responses and Effector Cell Responses Upon Nasal Allergen Exposure - a Pilot Study

IgE-associated allergy is a hypersensitivity disease affecting more than 25% of the population in industrialised countries. The recognition of allergen by immunoglobulin E (IgE) plays a central role in the cause of allergic diseases. Both seasonal and nasal provocation studies have demonstrated the rise in specific IgE after allergen exposure. Additionally changes in other clinical and immunological parameters (e.g. nasal blockage, mast cell and basophil sensitivity, various cy...
