  1. 16. Streptococcus pneumoniae and the host : activation, evasion and modulation of the human innate immune system

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

    Författare :Laura Spelmink; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Streptococcus pneumoniae is a major cause of severe infections such as pneumonia, septicemia and meningitis, but also a common colonizer of the nasopharynx in children. In most individuals colonization is harmless and eventually cleared by the immune system, but in rare cases pneumococci can reach deeper into the body and cause diseases. LÄS MER

  2. 17. Streptococcus pneumoniae : molecular epidemiology of isolates causing invasive disease and characterization of tolerance responses to lytic antibiotics

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)

    Författare :Birgitta Henriques Normark; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Streptococcus pneumoniae is a major contributor to community-acquired pneumonia and invasive disease. Despite adequate treatment, the morbidity and mortality remains high. The increasing antibiotic resistance makes the scenario even worse. LÄS MER

  3. 18. Diagnostic methods for bacterial etiology in adult community-acquired pneumonia

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköpings Universitet

    Författare :Kristoffer Strålin; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The etiologic agent is often unidentified in patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). Development of new diagnostic methods has been encouraged. We aimed to develop a multiplex PCR (mPCR) assay for common bacterial pathogens and evaluate the diagnostic usefulness of this assay and of respiratory culture in CAP. LÄS MER

  4. 19. DNA vaccines and bacterial DNA in immunity

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)

    Författare :Lisa Charlotta Bandholtz; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; DNA vaccine; CpG DNA; antimicrobial peptides C. pneumoniae; Shigella spp;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis describes DNA-based vaccination and the importance of bacterial DNA in different immunological perspectives. Intranasal (i.n.) DNA vaccination utilizing a plasmid encoding the chlamydial heat shock protein 60 (p-hsp-60) generated lower bacterial burden and reduced pathology in the lungs of mice after subsequent infection with C.

  5. 20. Host control of intracellular bacterial infections

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)

    Författare :Emma Eriksson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Listeria monocytogenes; CD44; flagellin; Chlamydia pneumoniae; TLR; NOD; IFNalpha beta; IFN-gamma;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis various immune mechanisms regulating control of infections with the intracellular bacteria Listeria monocytogenes and Chlamydia pneumoniae have been studied. These bacteria infect macrophages in which they can successfully grow. However, macrophages are potent killers of intracellular bacteria. LÄS MER
