Primære forskningsområder

Our general focus is feto-maternal alloimmuno disease.

The main focus of my group is the elucidation of the molecular mechanism underlying gestational alloimmune liver disease abbreviated GALD. This disease causes acute liver failure in fetus and newborn and is often fatal. 

We are generally interested in mechanisms of immune destruction, immunoglobulins, effects of immunoglobulins, 'designer antibodies' with anti-hemolytic effect against anti-D antibodies, and recombinant therapeutic antibodies against Plasmodium falciparum.

A second interest is genetics of blood groups, and antenatal fetal blood group determination based on cell free fetal DNA in maternal plasma using PCR and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS).

For blood donors we have designed a complete panel of genetic assays for determination of all clinically relevant blood groups. 

We are now involved in the investigation of the feasibility of launching an 'Rh prophylaxis'-like effort for identification of pregnancies at risk of alloimmune thrombocytopenia. We have devised a cost-effective solution based on the same samples used for RhD typing and antibody screening.

My laboratory has investigated feto-maternal hemorrhage from fetus to mother by flow cytometry.

We use flow cytometry for sensitive and informative investigation of DAT positive erythrocytes.

We investigate mechanical properties of red blood cell membranes by flow cytometry and fluidics.
