Abstract [en]

Type I interferons (IFNs), perhaps the most important of cytokines in fighting viral infections, have been target for detailed research only the past few decades and much is yet to be investigated. Hidden in the mysteries of IFNs might be powerful anti-viral and anti-tumor therapies, alongside greatly increased understanding of vertebrate immunology. This project aims at investigating IFN expression of in vitro stimulated equine cell lines and studies of IFN expression in horses, both healthy and a number of horses diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Amongst equine diseases, IBD is of increasing concern and scientific progressions within the project are, in several aspects, also applicable for human medicine.
