    FEMS Immunol Med Microbiol 33:41-5. 2002
    ..The results indicate that beta-glucans inhibit growth of M. tuberculosis in host cells in vitro, probably due to cellular stimulation and/or competitive inhibition of uptake of bacteria via CR3 (CD11b/18)...
  2. ncbi An extract of the mushroom Agaricus blazei Murill protects against lethal septicemia in a mouse model of fecal peritonitis
    Soosaipillai Bernardshaw
    Department of Gastroenterological Surgery, Ulleval University Hospital, Oslo, Norway
    Shock 25:420-5. 2006
    ..Further studies are needed on humans when considering whether AbM could be used as an alternative treatment modality for patients at risk of contracting serious bacterial peritonitis...
  3. ncbi Protective effect of beta-glucan against systemic Streptococcus pneumoniae infection in mice
    G Hetland
    Department of Environmental Medicine, National Institute of Public Health, Oslo, Norway
    FEMS Immunol Med Microbiol 27:111-6. 2000
    ..SSG injected 24 h post-challenge had a curative effect against type 6B but not type 4 pneumococcal infection. The data demonstrate that SSG administered systemically protects against pneumococcal infection in mice...
  4. ncbi Protective effect of Plantago major L. Pectin polysaccharide against systemic Streptococcus pneumoniae infection in mice
    G Hetland
    Department of Environmental Medicine, National Institute of Public Health, Oslo, Norway
    Scand J Immunol 52:348-55. 2000
    ..major protects against pneumococcal infection in mice when administered systemically prechallenge, and secondly that the protective effect is owing to stimulation of the innate and not the adaptive immune system...
  5. ncbi The fungal biopesticide Metarhizium anisopliae has an adjuvant effect on the allergic response to ovalbumin in mice
    Christine Instanes
    Norwegian Institute of Public Health, Division of Environmental Medicine, P O Box 4404 Nydalen, Oslo 0403, Norway
    Toxicol Lett 161:219-25. 2006
    ..These results suggest that M. anisopliae has the ability to increase an allergic response to an allergen and consequently, may worsen allergy in susceptible individuals...
  6. pmc Allergic sensitisation in tuberculosis patients at the time of diagnosis and following chemotherapy
    Linda K Ellertsen
    Department of Environmental Immunology, Division of Environmental Medicine, Norwegian Institute of Public Health, Oslo, Norway
    BMC Infect Dis 9:100. 2009
    ..Additionally, we wanted to determine the cytokine profile in the same groups and finally to evaluate the association between the presence of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin vaccination (BCG) scar and allergic sensitisation among the controls...
  7. ncbi Human umbilical vein endothelial cells express complement receptor 1 (CD35) and complement receptor 4 (CD11c/CD18) in vitro
    Harald Langeggen
    Research Forum, Ulleval Hospital, University of Oslo, Norway
    Inflammation 26:103-10. 2002
    ..The presence of CR1 (CD35) and CR4 (CD1c/CD18) on HUVEC indicates that endothelial cells (EC) have the potential to bind C3b and iC3b, respectively, which both mediate biological effects in the course of complement activation...
  8. ncbi Deoxynivalenol (DON) is toxic to human colonic, lung and monocytic cell lines, but does not increase the IgE response in a mouse model for allergy
    Christine Instanes
    Department of Environmental Immunology, Division of Environmental Medicine, Norwegian Institute of Public Health, Geitmyrsv 75, 0462 Oslo, Norway
    Toxicology 204:13-21. 2004
    ..These results suggest that DON, when inhaled or ingested, may have toxic effect on human alveolar macrophages and epithelial cells in lungs and colon, but does not increase the allergic response to allergens...
