  1. 1. Genetic characterisation of Meningococci

    Författare :Paula Mölling; Anders Sjöstedt; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Meningococci (Mc) are one of the major causes of meningitis and septicaemia throughout the world. Non-culture diagnostic methods are recognised as important tools for optimal laboratory confirmation of Me infections, due in part to the increased use of preadmission antibiotics. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Macrophage programming and host responses to bacterial infection

    Författare :Xiao Wang; Hong Sjölinder; Martin Rottenberg; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Macrophages; meningococci; mycobacteria; NhhA; CD46; cytokines; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Sammanfattning : Macrophages are dynamic, plastic, and heterogeneous immune cells that play an important role in host immune defense against bacterial infection. Various bacterial pathogens, such as Neisseria meningitidis and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, can modulate host immune responses by interfering with macrophage differentiation and polarization.

  3. 3. Antibiotic susceptibility and resistance in Neisseria meningitidis : phenotypic and genotypic characteristics

    Författare :Sara Thulin Hedberg; Magnus Unemo; Per Olcén; Hans Fredlund; Ian Feavers; Örebro universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Neisseria meningitidis, also known as the meningococcus, is a globally spread obligate human bacterium causing meningitis and/or septicaemia. It is responsible for epidemics in both developed and developing countries. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Pathogenic Neisseria : Single cell motility, multicellular dynamics and antimicrobial susceptibility

    Författare :Olaspers Sara Eriksson; Ann-Beth Jonsson; Matthew Francis; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Neisseria; Type IV pili; Twitching motility; PilT; Microcolony dynamics; PilU; NafA; Antimicrobial peptide; Cell-penetrating peptide; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Sammanfattning : Neisseria meningitidis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae can colonize humans without causing any symptoms. However, gonorrhea and invasive meningococcal disease are serious health concerns. An essential virulence factor for neisserial adhesion to host cells, twitching motility and microcolony formation/aggregation is the retractile type IV pili (Tfp). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Genome-based characterization of Neisseria meningitidis with focus on the emergent serogroup Y disease

    Författare :Bianca Törös; Hans Fredlund; Paula Mölling; Sara [Thulin] Hedberg; Per Olcén; Håkan Miörner; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neisseria meningitidis; meningococcal disease; serogroup Y; molecular characterization; epidemiology; genome sequencing; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Sammanfattning : Neisseria meningitidis, also referred to as meningococcus, is one of the leading causes of epidemic meningitis and septicaemia worldwide. Despite modern treatment, meningococcal disease remains associated with a high mortality (about 10%). LÄS MER
