  1. 1. Urinary tract infection : pathogenesis and complications

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

    Författare :Olof Hertting; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Urinary tract infections (UTI) are one of the most common infections in women and children worldwide. If not diagnosed and treated appropriately, it may lead to severe illness and long-term complications. The economic impact caused by UTI on society is significant. In addition, bacterial resistance to common antibiotics is spreading at a high rate. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Contact activation on bacterial surfaces - a virulence mechanism

    Detta är en avhandling från Kristin Persson, BMC B14, Tornavägen 10, 221 84 lund

    Författare :Kristin Persson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; General biomedical sciences; Biomedicinska vetenskaper allmänt ; sepsis; infection; S. aureus; S. typhimurium; E. coli; curli; fibrinopeptides; fibrinogen; Coagulation; contact system;

    Sammanfattning : Life-threatening conditions from bacterial infections are a major clinical problem. During a severe infection, the host responds by a massive release of pro-inflammatory mediators together with a systemic activation of systems such as the coagulation, fibrinolytic, and complement systems.

  3. 3. Short and long term effects of bacterial gastrointestinal infection

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics

    Författare :Anders Ternhag; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gastroenteritis; acute infectious diarrhea; Salmonella; Campylobacter; mortality; complications; morbidity; late effects; epidemiology; hospitalization; cohort study;

    Sammanfattning : The objectives of this thesis were to increase our understanding of the mortality and complications associated with bacterial gastrointestinal infections, with focus on Salmonella and Campylobacter enteritis. The effect of antibiotics vs. placebo on duration of diarrhea in Campylobacter enteritis was also examined. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Acute Liver Injury and the Gut. Role of Nitric Oxide, and the Effect of Arginine and Probiotic Administration

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Surgery, Malmö University Hospital, Lund University

    Författare :Diya Adawi; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1998]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gastro-enterology; traumatologi; ortopedi; Kirurgi; Lactobacilli; Bacterial translocation; D-galactosamine; Intestinal mucosal changes; Luminal factors; Microflora; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Gastroenterologi;

    Sammanfattning : Infectious complications with enteric bacteria are common in liver diseases and liver surgery. An increased bacterial translocation from the gut has been proposed as one underlying mechanism. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The female genital tract microbiota: composition, relation to innate immune factors, and effects of contraceptives

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Surgery, Malmö University Hospital, Lund University

    Författare :Natalia Nikolaitchouk; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bacterial vaginosis; checkerboard DNA-DNA hybridisation; cytokines; SLPI; Lactobacillus coleohominis; Lactobacillus iners; Actinomyces urogenitalis;

    Sammanfattning : Abnormal vaginal microbiota, as in bacterial vaginosis (BV), is associated with increased risk of obstetrical and gynaecologic complications and acquisition of sexually transmitted diseases. However, very little is known about the pathogenesis of BV. In BV, the normal vaginal Lactobacillus-dominated biota (LDB) is replaced by anaerobic bacteria. LÄS MER
