Bypassing adverse injection reactions to nanoparticles through shape modification and attachment to erythrocytes
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Manuskript; Peer reviewed; Preprint, 2017-04-10)
Intravenously injected nanopharmaceuticals, including PEGylated nanoparticles, induce adverse cardiopulmonary reactions in sensitive human subjects, and these reactions are highly reproducible in pigs. Although the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood, roles for both the complement system and reactive macrophages have been implicated. Here, we show the dominance and importance of robust ...
Cytokine profiling and post-transfusion haemoglobin increment in patients with haematological diseases
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2018-08-29)
<p><i>Background and Objectives</i>: In a previous pilot study, we demonstrated significantly lower haemoglobin (Hb) increment after red‐blood‐cell (RBC) transfusions in febrile patients compared to patients without fever. The aim of this study was to examine associations between inflammatory mediators and post‐transfusion haemoglobin increment in patients with haematological diseases.</p> <p>< ...
Granulocyte and monocyte CD11b expression during plasma separation is dependent on complement factor 5 (C5) – an ex vivo study with blood from a C5-deficient individual
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2018)
The aim of the study was to investigate the role of complement factor 5 (C5) in reactions elicited by plasma separation using blood from a C5‐deficient (C5D) individual, comparing it to C5‐deficient blood reconstituted with C5 (C5DR) and blood from healthy donors. Blood was circulated through an <i>ex vivo</i> plasma separation model. Leukocyte CD11b expression and leukocyte–platelet conjugates were ...
