      Thomas, Anub Mathew; Schjalm, Camilla; Nilsson, Per; Lindenskov, Paal Helge H.; Rørtveit, Runa; Solberg, Rønnaug; Saugstad, Ola Didrik; Berglund, Magnus M.; Strömberg, Patrik; Lau, Corinna; Espevik, Terje; Jansen, Johan Høgset; Castellheim, Albert; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Barratt-Due, Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Background: Meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS) is a severe lung condition affecting newborns and it can lead to a systemic inflammatory response. We previously documented complement activation and cytokine release in a ...
    • Ficolins do not alter host immune responses to lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammation in vivo 

      Genster, Ninette; Østrup, Olga; Schjalm, Camilla; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Cowland, Jack B.; Garred, Peter (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Ficolins are a family of pattern recognition molecules that are capable of activating the lectin pathway of complement. A limited number of reports have demonstrated a protective role of ficolins in animal models of ...
    • Properdin binding to complement activating surfaces depends on initial C3b deposition 

      Harboe, Morten; Johnson, Christina; Nymo, Stig Haugset; Ekholt, Karin; Schjalm, Camilla; Lindstad, Julie Katrine; Pharo, Anne Margrethe; Hellerud, Bernt C; Ekdahl, Kristina Nilsson; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Nilsson, Per (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Two functions have been assigned to properdin; stabilization of the alternative convertase, C3bBb, is well accepted, whereas the role of properdin as pattern recognition molecule is controversial. The presence of ...
    • Rickettsia conorii is a potent complement activator in vivo and combined inhibition of complement and CD14 is required for attenuation of the cytokine response ex vivo 

      Otterdal, Kari; Portillo, Aránzazu; Astrup, Elisabeth; Ludviksen, Judith K; Schjalm, Camilla; Raoult, Didier; Olano, Juan Pablo; Halvorsen, Bente; Oteo Revuelta, José Antonio; Aukrust, Pål; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Nilsson, Per (Journal article, 2016)
      Mediterranean spotted fever caused by Rickettsia conorii is a potentially lethal disease characterized by vascular inflammation affecting multiple organs. Studies of R. conorii so far have focused on activation of inflammatory ...
