  • Induction of type I interferons and viral immunity 

    Hidmark, Åsa (Institutionen för mikrobiologi, tumör- och cellbiologi / Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology, 2006-01-06)
    Virus-induced type I interferons (IFNá/â) are key mediators of innate immunity and important modulators of adaptive immunity. Early recognition of virus and induction of IFNá/â are important for limiting the spread of the ...
  • Molecular epidemiology of hepatitis A, B and C in Estonia 

    Tallo, Tatjana (Institutionen för mikrobiologi, tumör- och cellbiologi / Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology, 2006-03-31)
