” Enheten för lungmedicin är indelad i en klinisk forskningsavdelning samt ett lunglaboratorium. Det huvudsakliga forskningsintresset rör inflammatoriska lungsjukdomar med visst fokus på sarkoidos, där vi kartlägger sjukdomens uppkomst och utveckling samt dess bakomliggande orsaker. Detta görs bland annat genom att applicera en egen utvecklad metod för att identifiera sjukdomsspecifika antigen. Forskningen sker dels kliniskt, dels […] ”

” Inflammatory lung disorders (e.g. asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, interstitial lung diseases/sarcoidosis) affect a substantial part of the population causing considerable suffering and costs. The lung research unit focuses in various set-ups on unraveling mechanisms behind the initiation and progression of these conditions, some of us using sarcoidosis as disease model. A thorough identification of […] ”

Rökinducerad autoimmunitet - Wahlström

Jan Wahlström
Docent

” Cigarette smoking has been linked to risk of disease or to disease phenotype in a number of autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. The local microenvironment, such as that present in the lung, may determine which antigens are presented, and also direct the alternative fates of effector and regulatory T cell subsets […] ”

Johan Grunewald
MD, Professor

” Sarcoidosis is a pulmonary inflammatory disease of unknown etiology, affecting young middle aged people, with about 2000 new cases yearly in Sweden. 50-100 new sarcoidosis patients are investigated yearly with bronchoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL), giving us access to cells at the focus of inflammation. Typically, there is an accumulation of Th1 cells to the […] ”

Åsa Wheelock
Associate professor

” Our research program can be broadly defined as developing a respiratory systems biology approach utilizing a range of ‘omics, bioinformatics, & statistical platforms to characterize molecular sub-phenotypes of chronic inflammatory lung diseases. We focus equal efforts on translational studies of the response to environmental exposures in patients with COPD and asthma, and innovation & methodology […] ”

Magnus Nord
MD, Associate Professor

” Inflammatory lung diseases such as asthma, sarcoidosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are common diseases with a need for development of novel innovative treatments. To provide a basis for development of new therapeutic strategies, we use a translatory research approach linking basic mechanistic studies with clinical research to increase the molecular understanding of inflammatory […] ”

Göran Tornling
MD, Adjunct professor

” COPD phenotypes COPD is a heterogeneous disease, and sub-groups demonstrate considerable difference in response to treatment. By using imaging, biomarkers and clinical investigations on several groups of patients with COPD, we are performing a careful phenotyping to increase the understanding of the disease. The response to drugs with different mode of action will be studied […] ”

Kroniskt obstruktiv lungsjukdom, KOL - Sköld

Magnus Sköld
MD, Professor

” The prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is increasing in most parts of the world including Sweden. The disease, treated or untreated, leads to a progressive loss of lung function over time. So far, no treatment modalities have been shown to restore lung function impairment. COPD is primarily an inflammatory disease of the peripheral […] ”

Allergisk astma - Grönneberg

Reidar Grönneberg
MD, Associate Professor

” Allergic asthma is an inflammatory airway disease characterised by bronchial hyperreactivity to a variety of stimuli such as inhaled allergens. We are interested in early inflammatory events in allergic asthma, to identify key components which could be used as disease markers, diagnostic tools or as targets for future treatments. For this reason, bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar […] ”
