  2. 2. Structures of some bacterial polysaccharides with focus on pneumococcal polysaccharides and their associated C-polysaccharide

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Författare :Camilla Karlsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1998]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Streptococcus pneumoniae; Pneumococcus; C-polysaccharide; Sphingomonas paucimoblis; Hafnia alvei; NMR spectroscopy; capsular polysaccharide; lipopolysaccharide; structure;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis describes the chemical structures of the capsular polysaccharides from Streptococcus pneumoniae types 18B, 32F, and 32A. The structure of the pneumococcal common antigen, C-polysaccharide, from a non-capsulated pneumococcal strain, CSR SCS2, is described and the structure of the C-polysaccharide associated with pneumococcal types 18B, 32F, and 32A.

  3. 3. Characterization of host and microbe interactions affecting adherence, clearance and systemic spread of S. pneumoniae

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Författare :Sofia Dahlberg; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) mainly gives rise to diseases of the respiratory tract, such as pneumonia, acute otitis media and sinusitis, but it also causes severe invasive diseases, such as meningitis and sepsis. The pneumococcus accounts for approximately two million deaths world-wide every year, the majority of which are children in developing countries. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Linking innate and adaptive immunity to streptococcus pneumoniae

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Författare :Marie Olliver; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) most commonly colonizes the human nasopharyngeal mucosa without causing any symptoms. However, this organism has the potential to spread to normally sterile sites and cause pneumonia, meningitis or sepsis; diseases which are characterized by excessive inflammation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Characterization of virulence in clinical isolates of Streptococcus pneumoniae

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Författare :Erik Martin Norman; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : The immune system together with competing pneumococcal strains and other bacterial species, impose a selective pressure on the pneumococcus that leads to the expansion of certain lineages and the remission of others. Our results show that the invasive disease potential varies between serotypes, and also between sequence types (STs) determined by Multi-Locus Sequence Typing (MLST). LÄS MER
