  1. 1. Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli, EHEC.Microbiological diagnosis, characterisation and clinical bacteriological aspects

    Författare :Christina Welinder-Olsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Escherichia coli; EHEC; VTEC; verocytotoxin; PFGE; EHEC-hemolysin; aerobactin; diarrhoea; HUS;

    Sammanfattning : Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) constitutes a group of E. coli that in the past two decades has been the cause of several outbreaks of gastrointestinal disease. The microorganism causes hemorrhagic colitis (HC) and haemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) in 5-10% of the patients, 30% of the HUS patients develop remaining kidney injuries. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Health hazards associated with dissemination of bacterial strains in waste water recycling

    Författare :Mokhlasur Rahman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : Treated waste effluents with low levels of chemical and microbiological contents are used for domestic, industrial, agricultural and aquacultural purposes worldwide, and it is estimated that one tenth or more of the world’s population consume food produced through irrigation with wastewater. Treated hospital waste effluents may contain pathogenic and drug resistant bacteria, which constitutes the most dangerous single risk factor for dissemination of pathogenic and drug resistant organisms to the environment.

  3. 3. The upper gastrointestinal tract in chronic alcoholics

    Författare :Truls Hauge; Lund Medicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; alkaline phosphatase; mucosal bacterial growth; Helicobacter pylori; morphology; upper gastrointestinal endoscopy; chronic alcoholics; upper gastrointestinal tract; gamma-glutamyl transferase; neuropeptides.; Gastro-enterology; Gastroenterologi;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Gastrointestinal symptoms such as dyspepsia, diarrhoea, and nausea are often seen in alcoholics. The causes are not clear. The stomach and upper small intestine are exposed to high alcohol concentrations. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Structural studies of some bacterial polysaccharides and extension of a method for lipid A cleavage

    Författare :Reine Eserstam; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Serratia marcescens; Hafnia alvei; Vibrio cholerae; polysaccharide; NMR;

    Sammanfattning : The focus of the work presented in this thesis has been to study the structures of the capsular polysaccharide from Serratia marcescens O14:K12, and the O-antigen polysaccharides from Hafnia alvei strain 10457 and Vibrio cholerae serogroup 037. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy was the primary technique employed. S. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Faecal short-chain fatty acids as an indicator of the status of intestinal microbial ecology

    Författare :Urmas Siigur; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Intestinal microflora; SCFAs; Faecal water; Breast-feeding; Metronidazole; Lactose malabsorption; Bacterial diarrhoea; Olestra;

    Sammanfattning : The aims of this study were to investigate how faecal concentrations of shortchain fatty acids (SCFAs) reflect intestinal microbial ecology. Faecal SCFAs andwater content were determined in 93 healthy volunteers to establish the normal valuesin man and the correlations between various SCFAs and between SCFAs and faecal water. LÄS MER
