    J Immunol 164:3214-21. 2000

    J Endotoxin Res 7:442-6. 2001
    ..In contrast, higher quantities of TNF-alpha were observed in the CD14-blocked group. To conclude, anti-CD14 treatment had a detrimental effect on the capacity of Shigella-infected animals to clear the infection...

    Lena Svensson
    Department of Clinical Bacteriology, Goteborg University, Gothenburg, Sweden
    Eur J Immunol 34:1744-51. 2004
    ..We propose that eosinophil activation in vivo is not exclusively mediated by cytokines and chemokines of the allergic inflammatory reaction, but could partly be the result of direct interaction between allergens and eosinophils...

    Department of Rheumatology and Inflammation Research, Guldhedsgatan 10, S 413 46, Goteborg, Sweden
    Inflammation 30:224-9. 2007
    ..Based on the difference in potency of cyclosporin H and the two Boc-peptides, we suggest using cyclosporin H as a specific inhibitor for FPR. To specifically inhibit the FPRL1 response the antagonist WRW(4) should be used...

    Inflammation 32:65-9. 2009
