    Sammanfattning : Staphylococci constitute a major part of our commensal flora but are also the most common bacteria causing prosthetic joint infections (PJIs), a dreaded complication of arthroplasty surgery. However, not all staphylococci are the same. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Staphylococcus epidermidis is ubiquitous in the human microbiota, but also an important pathogen in healthcare-associated infections, such as prosthetic joint infections (PJIs). In this thesis, aspects of the molecular epidemiology of S. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Genotypic and phenotypic characterisation of Staphylococcus epidermidis isolated from prosthetic joint infections

    Sammanfattning : Staphylococcus epidermidis has emerged in recent years as an important nosocomial pathogen, especially in infections associated with implanted foreign body materials (e.g., prosthetic joints and heart valves) and in individuals with a compromised immune system (e.g. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Coagulase-negative staphylococci in prosthetic hip infections

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping Universitet

    Sammanfattning : More than 11,000 primary total hip replacements were performed in Sweden in the year 2000, corresponding to 125 primary total hip replacements per 100,000 inhabitants, according to The Swedish Total Hip Replacement Register. In general, this procedure provides highly satisfactory results. LÄS MER

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

    Detta är en avhandling från Anna Holmberg

    Författare :Anna Holmberg; [2013]
    Nyckelord :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.
