    Sammanfattning : The Gram-positive cocci, Staphylococcus aureus, coagulase negative staphylococci (CoNS), Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium, are the bacteria most often isolated from patients with hospital acquired infections. S. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : The first hospital outbreak of vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) and carriage rates of VRE and ampicillin-resistant enterococci (ARE) in Sweden were investigated. Clonal relationships and mutations in fluoroquinolone resistance determining regions among ARE collected nation-wide were studied. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Enterococci in Swedish intensive care units : studies on epidemiology, mechanisms of antibiotic resistance and virulence factors

    Författare :Anita Hällgren; Arnfinn Sundsfjord; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this thesis was to study enterococci in Sweden, their resistance to antibiotics in general and high-level gentamicin resistance (HLGR) in particular, with a special focus on the ICU setting. Dynamics of rectal colonisation during prolonged intensive care unit (ICU) stay was assessed. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Vancomycin resistant enterococci in Swedish broilers : emergence, epidemiology and elimination

    Författare :Oskar Nilsson; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Vancomycin resistance enterococci (VRE) are an important cause of nosocomial infections. Presence of VRE in farm animals constitute a reservoir of resistance that can spread to humans via the food-chain and is due to extensive use of the growth promoter avoparcin conferring cross-resistance to vancomycin.

  5. 5. Hemoproteins of Enterococcus faecalis

    Författare :Lena Frankenberg; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Växtekologi; heme Enterococcus faecalis enterococci catalase cytochrome; Plant ecology;

    Sammanfattning : The gram-positive bacterium Enterococcus faecalis is a commensal organism, often found in the gut of humans and other animals. It can cause opportunistic disease and it frequently causes nosocomial infections. Treatment of such infections is often impaired by this organisms broad intrinsic and acquired resistance to antibiotics. E. LÄS MER
