J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 20:178-83. 2006..These skin-infiltrating lymphocytes might trigger, by the local production of Th-1 cytokines such as TNF-alpha and interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma), the eruption of psoriatic plaques in patients with a genetic predisposition for psoriasis...
- Multiple disseminated large-cell acanthomas of the skin associated with human papillomavirus type 6Thomas Berger
Departments of Dermatology, University of Erlangen Nuremberg, Erlangen, Germany
J Am Acad Dermatol 53:335-7. 2005..Further analysis revealed, surprisingly, the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) type 6 within these lesions. HPV type 6 should therefore be considered an important cofactor in the pathogenesis of large-cell acanthomas...

Clinical Department of Neurology, Innsbruck Medical University, Anichstrasse 35, A-6020 Innsbruck, Austria
J Neuroimmunol 180:50-62. 2006..We believe that antibodies serving as biomarkers will help to establish a differential therapeutic concept in MS, which will allow to treat individuals selectively according to their pathogenetic subtype and disease status...

Department of Neurology, University of Innsbruck, Anichstrasse 35, A-6020, Innsbruck, Austria
J Neuroimmunol 131:201-7. 2002..We conclude that antibody responses to MOG and MBP depend on familial background. Moreover, the humoral immune reactivity against MOG is partially under control of certain HLA class II alleles...
- TLR9 cooperates with TLR4 to increase IL-12 release by murine dendritic cellsGabi Theiner
Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Erlangen, Germany
Mol Immunol 45:244-52. 2008..The stimulatory effect could be further enhanced by addition of IFN-gamma but not anti-CD40 antibodies. These data show, that TLR4 and TLR9 can cooperate to increase selectively IL-12 production by DC...
