  1. 1. On the epidemiology, clinical presentation and transmission of respiratory viral infections

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborgs universitet

    Författare :Nicklas Sundell; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2020]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; respiratory viruses; measles; influenza; epidemiology; meteorological factors; real-time PCR; viral transmission; lower respiratory tract infection;

    Sammanfattning : Respiratory viral infections encompass a large heterogenous group of pathogens that constitute a major burden of disease globally. The various routes of transmission including airborne spread make them difficult to control. LÄS MER

  2. 2. On the Diagnosis and Management of Viral Respiratory Infections

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborgs universitet

    Författare :Robin Brittain-Long; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Respiratory virus; Respiratory tract infection; Real-time PCR; Multiplex PCR; Antibiotic use;

    Sammanfattning : Acute respiratory tract infections (ARTIs), are the most common infections in man, and represent a major global health burden. Viruses, most often causing a mild and self-limiting disease, yet with substantial morbidity and high costs for society, mainly cause upper respiratory tract infections. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Epidemiological studies of severe infections in COPD

    Detta är en avhandling från Respiratory Medicine and Allergology, Lund University

    Författare :Malin Inghammar; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Invasive Pneumococcal Disease; Bacteraemia; Tuberculosis; Epidemiology; COPD;

    Sammanfattning : It is well known that patients with COPD have an increased risk of lower respiratory tract infections, but less is known about the association with other infections. The aim of this thesis was to explore epidemiological aspects of severe infections in COPD, using public registries in Sweden. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Direct Demonstration of Influenza Virus and Mycoplasma Pneumoniae in the Respiratory Tract

    Detta är en avhandling från Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Författare :Anna Nilsson; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; polymeras chain reaction; influenza virus; Mycoplasma pneumoniae; diagnosis; respiratory tract infection; sample site; serial samples;

    Sammanfattning : Diagnostic tests based on nucleic acid amplification have become available for Mycoplasma pneumoniae (MP) and influenza viruses. Here, an MP PCR test detected 100% of infections during the first three symptomatic weeks, whereas classical serology detected 21% week 1, 56% week 2, and 100% week 3. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Respiratory Tract Infections: Aspects of Aetiology, Virulence, and Communicable Disease Control

    Detta är en avhandling från Infectious Diseases Research Unit

    Författare :Jonas Ahl; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Streptococcus pneumoniae; day care center; communicable disease control intervention; eradication therapy; invasive pneumococcal disease; serotype 3; aetiology; ventilator-associated pneumonia;

    Sammanfattning : The paediatric nasopharyngeal flora is regarded as the largest reservoir for Streptococcus pneumoniae, and the carrier state is always antecedent to infection and a prerequisite for dispersion of these bacteria. Pneumococci are the predominant aetiology of bacterial respiratory tract infections and a major cause of morbidity and mortality, in the most severe cases due to invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD; mainly sepsis and meningitis).
