    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to explore the features of asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) in elderly people living in the community, and to seek diagnostic tools to discriminate between ASB and symptomatic urinary tract infection (UTI). All men and women aged 80 and over living in an urban district of Falun, Sweden, were invited to participate. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Mechanisms of microbial-host interaction during asymptomatic bacteriuria

    Detta är en avhandling från Division of Microbiology, Immunology and Glycobiology - MIG

    Sammanfattning : Urinary tract infections (UTIs) present an interesting and relevant model for studying microbial adaptation. After establishing significant numbers, the bacteria either cause severe disease, or an asymptomatic carrier state resembling the normal flora at other mucosal sites. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Diagnostic aspects of urinary tract infections among elderly residents of nursing homes

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Pär-Daniel Sundvall; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bacteriuria; Nursing Homes; Homes for the Aged; Urinary Tract Infections; Predictive Value of Tests; Dipstick Urinalysis; Interleukin-6; Drug Resistance; Bacterial.;

    Sammanfattning : ABSTRACT Background: Up to half the residents of nursing homes for the elderly have asymptomatic bacteriuria (ABU), which should not be treated with antibiotics. Thus, it is difficult to know if new symptoms in residents with bacteriuria are caused by urinary tract infection (UTI), or if bacteriuria only represents an ABU. LÄS MER

    Detta är en avhandling från Division of Microbiology, Immunology and Glycobiology - MIG

    Författare :Göran Bergsten; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mykologi; virologi; bakteriologi; Mikrobiologi; mycology; virology; bacteriology; Microbiology; IL-8; IL-6; neutrophils; GFP; mucosal host response; Type 1 fimbriae; P fimbriae; adherence; virulence factors; regulation; deliberate colonisation; Escherichia coli 83972; Urinary tract infection; asymptomatic bacteriuria;

    Sammanfattning : Urinary tract infections (UTI) are among the most common bacterial infections in humans. Symptomatic UTIs may be acute, recurrent or chronic but the most frequent form of UTI is asymptomatic bacteruria (ABU). In ABU, the mucosa remains inert, despite the presence of large bacterial numbers in urine. LÄS MER
