  • ADCC-mediating capacity in children with cow's milk protein intolerance in relation to IgG subclass profile of serum antibodies to beta-lactoglobulin.
  • 1995
  • Ingår i: Scandinavian journal of immunology. - 0300-9475. ; 42:1, s. 140-6
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In a previous study sera from children with cow's milk protein intolerance (CMPI) exhibiting gastrointestinal symptoms were found to efficiently induce antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) to beta-lactoglobulin-coated cells. In contrast, sera from children with coeliac disease showed a low ADCC-mediating capacity, despite high levels of IgG anti-beta-lactoglobulin antibodies. The study described here was undertaken to evaluate whether differences in IgG subclass profile of anti-beta-lactoglobulin antibodies could explain the observed variations in the ADCC-mediating capacity. Forty-eight sera from the following groups of children were investigated: CMPI with predominantly gastrointestinal symptoms, CMPI with skin symptoms of immediate-onset, children with untreated coeliac disease and healthy references. Absorption experiments indicated that primarily IgG1 antibodies were responsible for the ADCC-mediating capacity of the sera. Accordingly, the ADCC reactivity of individual sera correlated with their IgG1 antibody levels. Sera from CMPI children with gastrointestinal symptoms, most of which had a high ADCC reactivity, also demonstrated a distinctive subclass pattern of their anti-beta-lactoglobulin antibodies with higher relative proportions of IgG1 (ratios: IgG1/IgG, IgG1/IgG3 and IgG1/IgG4) than those from the other diagnostic groups. Using logistic regression analysis, the diagnostic potential of ADCC as well as of different IgG subclass variables for the recognition of gastrointestinal symptoms caused by CMPI was evaluated. The ADCC reactivity of sera was found to be the best predictor in this model.

  • Antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity to gliadin-coated cells with sera from children with coeliac disease.
  • 1998
  • Ingår i: Scandinavian journal of immunology. - 0300-9475. ; 47:1, s. 37-42
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) has been suggested as a contributing immunological mechanism in the disease process of coeliac disease. In the present study, sera from coeliac children were examined for their capacity to mediate ADCC against gliadin-coated target cells. The ADCC-mediating efficacy of sera were tested using monocytes from healthy adults as effector cells and gliadin-coated erythrocytes from the same donor as targets. Using monocytes as effector cells, sera from children with active coeliac disease (untreated or challenged), demonstrated significantly higher ADCC-mediating capacity than sera from healthy and disease references as well as children with treated coeliac disease. A positive correlation was found between the ADCC-mediating capacity and serum IgG as well as IgA anti-gliadin antibody levels. The results suggest that an antibody-dependent monocyte/macrophage-induced cytotoxic reaction might be involved in the disease process of coeliac disease.

  • Resident colonic Escherichia coli strains frequently display uropathogenic characteristics.
  • 1992
  • Ingår i: The Journal of infectious diseases. - 0022-1899. ; 165:1, s. 46-52
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Bacterial factors associated with long-term persistence in the colon have not been defined. Individual Escherichia coli strains in the colonic flora of 13 schoolgirls with asymptomatic bacteriuria were identified by electromorphic typing of chromosomally encoded enzymes and defined as resident or transient. The strains were characterized as to serotype, receptor specificity, and adherence to the human colonic epithelial cell line HT-29. Colonic resident strains expressed P fimbriae, adhered to colonic epithelial cells via a mannose-resistant mechanism, and expressed the uropathogenic serotypes O1, O2, O6, O7, O18, O25, or O75 more often than did the transient strains, which were often nontypeable. The serotype and hemagglutination pattern were generally retained during intestinal carriage, in contrast to the loss of such properties upon prolonged colonization of the urinary tract. P fimbriae with Gal alpha 1----4Gal beta-specific adherence may, in fact, have evolved to increase persistence in the colon.

  • Embolisation therapy in the midgut carcinoid syndrome: just tumour ischaemia?
  • 1993
  • Ingår i: Acta oncologica (Stockholm, Sweden). - 0284-186X. ; 32:2, s. 251-6
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Forty-eight patients with midgut carcinoid tumours and disseminated disease were treated at our unit 1986-1991. All patients underwent primary surgery with optimal tumour reduction. Twenty-seven patients with bilobar liver metastases had subsequent embolizations of the hepatic arteries to further reduce the functional tumour mass and were thereafter treated with a low dose of octreotide. The response to this treatment was evaluated by CT at 3 months postembolization. The patients could then be divided into 13 responders (no visible hepatic tumours or more than 50% reduction, group I) and 14 non-responders (less than 50 reduction or progression, group II). When these patients were studied biochemically and in terms of prognosis, the reduction of 5-HIAA levels postembolization was much more pronounced in group I (80 +/- 3%) then in group II (28 +/- 12%). The biochemical and radiological responses were long-lasting in group I, none of the patients needed further ischaemic treatment. Of specific interest were 3 patients with bilobar disease, who after selective unilobar embolisation normalised their 5-HIAA levels and had bilateral tumour regression. These findings indicate involvement of systemic effects in addition to tumour ischaemia alone. The initial biochemical response with marked decrease of 5-HIAA levels in combination with tumour regression may thus serve as an indicator of good prognosis.

  • The effect of vagotomy on enterochromaffin-like cells in Mastomys natalensis.
  • 1996
  • Ingår i: Journal of the autonomic nervous system. - 0165-1838. ; 59:3, s. 133-9
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The effect of vagotomy on the development of ECL cell tumours was analyzed during drug-induced hypergastrinemia in Mastomys natalensis, a rodent prone to develop ECL cell tumours. Untreated animals were compared with animals receiving the histamine2-receptor blocker loxtidine (LOX) and with animals subjected to unilateral subdiaphragmatic vagotomy prior to loxtidine treatment (VAG+LOX). Loxtidine (2g/l) was administered in drinking water for 48 weeks to allow multiple ECL cell carcinoids to develop. Plasma gastrin levels were increased in LOX animals (94 +/- 31 pmol/l) and in VAG+LOX animals (181 +/- 59 pmol/l) compared to controls (45 +/- 4 pmol/l). Corpus weight and oxyntic mucosal thickness was almost doubled in all loxtidine-treated animals and the density of mucosal endocrine cells was increased by 65% in the LOX group and by 135% in VAG+LOX animals. No significant differences in mucosal thickness and endocrine cell density were seen when denervated and intact parts of the stomach were compared. In the VAG+LOX animals endocrine cell neoplasia was seen in 60% and dysplasia in 40% of animals compared to 40% neoplasia, 45% dysplasia and 15% hyperplasia in LOX animals. The frequency of neoplastic and dysplastic lesions did not differ between denervated and intact parts of the stomach. Untreated animals showed no neoplastic or dysplastic lesions. It is concluded that unilateral vagotomy has no protective effect on the development of ECL-cell tumours in Mastomys during hypergastrinemia, as opposed to previous studies in the rat.

  • Are lymph node micrometastases of any clinical significance in Dukes' stages A and B colorectal cancer?
  • 1998
  • Ingår i: Diseases of the Colon & Rectum. - : Wolters Kluwer. - 0012-3706 .- 1530-0358. ; 41:10, s. 1244-1249

    • PURPOSE: The aim was to investigate the significance of lymph node micrometastases in Dukes Stages A and B colorectal cancer.METHODS: Archival specimens were examined from 147 patients (96 colon, 51 rectum; 44 Stage A, 103 Stage B) who had surgery between 1987 and 1994. One lymph node section from each node (colon, 1-11; median, 4; rectum, 1-15; median, 3) was examined with use of an anticytokeratin antibody.RESULTS: Forty-seven (32 percent) patients had micrometastases. At follow-up in June 1996, 23 patients had died of cancer or with known tumor relapse, after a median time of 28 (range, 5-67) months; 8 of 47 (17 percent) patients had micrometastases, 15 of 100 (15 percent) did not. No statistically significant differences were observed according to micrometastases when the results were analyzed with respect to Dukes stage or survival time. The median survival time of living patients with micrometastases was 48 (range, 18-97) months, and for patients without micrometastases, 48 (range, 19-111) months. Six of 96 living patients had a tumor relapse; three of these displayed micrometastases.CONCLUSION: Lymph node micrometastases are not a useful prognostic marker in Dukes Stages A and B and do not imply different strategies for additional therapy or follow-up.

  • Decrease in contents of pancreatic carboxyl ester lipase, phospholipase A2 and lingual lipase in rats with with streptozotocin-induced diabetes.
  • 1993
  • Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology. - : Informa UK Limited. - 1502-7708 .- 0036-5521. ; 28:3, s. 256-260
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The changes in contents of pancreatic carboxyl ester lipase, phospholipase A2, and lingual lipase in rats with streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetes have been studied. The contents of pancreatic carboxyl ester lipase and phospholipase A2 decreased by 40% and 45%, respectively, 5 days after injection of STZ, whereas pancreatic lipase steadily increased to 100% over control. The content of lingual lipase decreased sharply by more than 90% 2 days after STZ injection, followed by a tendency to recover slightly. Insulin treatment at a dose abolishing the urine glucose in diabetic rats for 3 days restored the contents of pancreatic lipase, carboxyl ester lipase, and lingual lipase but not pancreatic phospholipase A2. The results indicate that lack of insulin action induces an anticoordinate change in gastrointestinal lipolytic enzymes, with decreases in pancreatic carboxyl ester lipase, phospholipase A2, and lingual lipase contents and an increase in pancreatic lipase content.

  • Liver resections for metastases from intraabdominal leiomyosarcoma
  • 1999
  • Ingår i: HPB Surgery. - : Hindawi Limited. - 0894-8569. ; 11:4, s. 261-264
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This paper discusses liver resection for intraabdominal leiomyosarcoma metastases as a therapy for carefully selected patients. Of the 83 hepatectomies performed from 1992 to 1996, five were resections for liver metastases due to intraabdominal leiomyosarcoma, in 3 patients. The surgical indication was single liver metastases, without any evidence of extrahepatic disease. No mortality occurred during surgery and the longest survival was 38 months. We concluded that liver resection for leiomyosarcoma metastases can be performed, allowing a long term survival in an occasional patient.

  • Gastric carcinoid with histamine production, histamine transporter and expression of somatostatin receptors.
  • 1998
  • Ingår i: Digestion. - 0012-2823. ; 59:2, s. 160-6
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • A case of sporadic, histamine-producing gastric carcinoid with liver metastases is reported. The patient was treated with somatostatin analogue (octreotide) combined with cortisone and blockade of histamine receptors prior to surgery, which included subtotal gastrectomy, excision of lymph node metastases and superficial liver metastases. Residual liver metastases were injected with ethanol. These interventions markedly reduced the urinary excretion of the main histamine metabolite (MelmAA). Eighteen months later combined immuno- and chemotherapy was initiated due to tumour progression and recurrent hormonal symptoms with good clinical results over 12 months. Scintigraphy, using 111In-DTPA-D-Phe1-octreotide, visualized somatostatin receptors (sstr) in primary tumour, lymph node metastases and liver metastases. The tissue/blood 111In concentration ratios of tumour biopsies were very high. Northern analyses confirmed expression of all subtypes of sstr1-5. Immunocytochemically, tumour cells were strongly positive for chromogranin A, histamine and vesicular monoamine transporter (VMAT) 2 (histamine transporter), but negative for VMAT 1, suggesting an origin from gastric enterochromaffin-like cells. In primary tumour cell cultures, histamine, 5-HTP and 5-HIAA, but not 5-HT, could be detected in conditioned culture medium, indicating a defective decarboxylation of the tryptamine precursor. This rare case of histamine-producing gastric carcinoid demonstrates that excellent symptom relief can be achieved despite disseminated disease, if active, multimodal treatment strategy is instituted. The presence of high numbers of sstr in tumour tissue also raises the possibility of receptor-guided radiotherapy.

  • Expression of transforming growth factor alpha and its receptor in human neuroendocrine tumours.
  • 1995
  • Ingår i: International journal of cancer. Journal international du cancer. - 0020-7136. ; 60:5, s. 645-51

    • Transforming growth-factor-alpha (TGF-alpha) is a 50-amino-acid polypeptide that binds to the epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor and stimulates cell growth. It has been suggested that enhanced production of TGF-alpha and EGF receptors by tumour cells promote tumour-cell growth by autocrine mechanisms. In the present study we have investigated the expression of TGF-alpha and EGF receptors in human neuroendocrine tumours, including midgut carcinoid tumours, phaeochromocytomas and medullary thyroid carcinomas. TGF-alpha expression was demonstrated in biopsies of all tumours examined (n = 30) and EGF receptors in a majority of tumours by Northern analysis and/or immunocytochemistry. Expression of TGF-alpha and EGF receptors was also demonstrated in primary cultures of tumour cells. Carcinoid tumours and phaeochromocytomas in culture secreted detectable amounts of TGF-alpha into the culture medium (400-700 pM). The amount of secreted TGF-alpha could be suppressed by octreotide treatment in individual tumours. Administration of exogenous TGF-alpha stimulated carcinoid tumour growth in vitro as determined by the DNA contents of cell cultures. The growth-stimulatory effect of TGF-alpha could be partially blocked by the use of neutralizing anti-EGF receptor monoclonal antibodies (MAbs). In conclusion, several human neuroendocrine tumours express both TGF-alpha and EGF receptors in in vivo and in vitro, suggesting that TGF-alpha may regulate tumour-cell growth by autocrine mechanisms.
