  1. 1. Propionibacterium acnes and its phages

    Författare :Rolf Lood; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Propionibacterium acnes; biofilm; bacteriophage; Siphovirus; pseudolysogeny; heme oxygenase; free radicals; recombinant protein expression; vector;

    Sammanfattning : Microorganisms are everywhere! They can tolerate many diverse extreme environments, such as the human body. Even though many of us might associate the word microorganism with infections and disease, most are actually either harmless or even beneficial for us. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The role of microorganisms in prostate cancer development

    Författare :Johanna Bergh Drott; Fredrik Elgh; Torkel Wadström; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; prostate cancer; aetiology; inflammation; Propionibacterium acnes; patologi; Pathology;

    Sammanfattning : Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among Swedish men, but the aetiology of this disease is largely unknown. There is evidence for a linkage between chronic inflammation and prostate cancer. The mechanisms causing prostate inflammation and how this could promote tumour development and progression are however largely unknown. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Battling Bacterial Biofilm - antibiotic regimens targeting Grampositive pathogens in biofilm

    Författare :Anna Holmberg; Sektion III; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biofilm; antibiotic susceptibility; prosthetic joint infection; MBEC; Enterococcus faecalis; Enterococcus faecium; Propionibacterium acnes.;

    Sammanfattning : AbstractBacteria in most environments encase themselves in a hydrated matrix of polysaccharide and protein, forming organized communities called biofilms. In the biofilm bacteria are protected against hostile environments. Biofilms are important clinically because of their persistence despite host defence and their recalcitrance to antimicrobials.

  4. 4. Infection induced chronic inflammation and it's association with prostate cancer initiation and progression

    Författare :Sabina Davidsson; Ove Andrén; Bo Söderquist; Jennifer Rider; Gisela Helenius; Jan-Erik Damber; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Prostate cancer; chronic inflammation; CD4 helper T cells; CD8 cytotoxic T cells; regulatory T cells; Propionibacterium acnes; Medicin; Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : An association between cancer development and inflammation has long been suggested. Approximately 20% of all human cancers in adults are assumed to result from chronic inflammation. The aim of this thesis was to investigate if infection-induced chronic inflammation plays a role in prostate carcinogenesis. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Inflammasomes : defense guardians in host-microbe defence

    Författare :Berolla Sahdo; Eva Särndahl; Bo Söderquist; Anna Norrby Teglund; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Innate immunity; inflammasome; leukocytes; cytokines; Staphylococcus aureus; Propionibacterium acnes; inflammation; infection; gene variants; polymorphism.; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Sammanfattning : The inflammasomes are emerging as key regulators of the innate immune response as they response to cellular infection, tissue damage and/or stress. Activated inflammasomes provide a signalling platform for caspase-1 activation which subsequently processes the maturation of interleukin (IL)-1β and IL-18, and in addition promotes cell death, named pyroptosis.
