    • Blockade of lymphotoxin-beta receptor signaling reduces aspects of Sjogren's syndrome in salivary glands of non-obese diabetic mice 

      Gatumu, Margaret Karimi; Skarstein, Kathrine; Papandile, Adrian; Browning, Jeffrey L.; Fava, Roy A.; Bolstad, Anne Isine (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2009-02-18)
      Introduction The lymphotoxin-beta receptor (LTβR) pathway is important in the development and maintenance of lymphoid structures. Blocking this pathway has proven beneficial in murine models of autoimmune diseases such as ...
    • Epidemiology of Sjögrens syndrome-from an oral perspective 

      Bolstad, Anne Isine; Skarstein, Kathrine (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
      Oral symptoms are among the most distressing manifestations for patients with Sjögren’s syndrome (SS). The feeling of dry mouth is unpleasant, and hyposalivation may contribute to difficulty in speaking, chewing and ...
    • A five-year prospective study of fatigue in primary Sjögren’s syndrome 

      Haldorsen, Karstein; Bjelland, Ingvar; Bolstad, Anne Isine; Jonsson, Roland; Brun, Johan Gorgas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2011-10-13)

    • The influence of the NOD Nss1/Idd5 loci on sialadenitis and gene expression in salivary glands of congenic mice 

      Hjelmervik, Trond Ove R.; Linqvist, Anne-Karin; Petersen, Kjell; Johannesson, Martina; Stavrum, Anne-Kristin; Johansson, Åsa; Jonsson, Roland; Holmdahl, Rikard; Bolstad, Anne Isine (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2007-09-27)
      The nonobese diabetic (NOD) Nss1 and Idd5 loci have been associated with sialadenitis development in mice. In this study the NOD Nss1 and Idd5 loci were backcrossed onto the healthy control strain B10.Q by using the speed ...
    • Leukocyte transmigration into tissue-engineered constructs is influenced by endothelial cells through Toll-like receptor signaling
