    Sammanfattning : Staphylococcus aureus is a commensal of the human flora, primarily colonizing the anterior nares and throat, but it may also cause infections ranging from mild skin and soft tissue infections to severe diseases such as endocarditis and septicemia. S. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Molecular detection and epidemiological studies of atypical bacteria causing respiratory tract infections

    Författare :Karolina Gullsby; Kåre Bondeson; Björn Olsen; Puolakkainen Mirja; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chlamydia pneumoniae; Mycoplasma pneumoniae; Bordetella pertussis; real-time PCR; P1 typing; MLVA; whole-genome sequencing; macrolide resistance; molecular diagnostics; molecular epidemiology;

    Sammanfattning : Respiratory infections are common causes of morbidity and mortality. Chlamydia pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae and Bordetella pertussis cause respiratory infection, often with similar symptoms. Molecular diagnostic methods are preferred since these bacteria are difficult to culture. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Molecular epidemiology of coagulase-negative staphylococci in hospitals and in the community

    Sammanfattning : Background Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) and in particular Staphylococcus epidermidis have emerged as major pathogens primarily causing nosocomial infections in patients with indwelling medical devices. These infections are often caused by multidrug-resistant strains of S. epidermidis (MDRSE). LÄS MER

  4. 4. Molecular epidemiology of streptococcus agalactiae : mobile elements as genetic markers

    Författare :Shi-Lu Luan; Mari Norgren; Barbara Spellerberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Streptococcus agalactiae; group II intron GBSi1 ; multilocus sequence typing; capsular serotype; population structure; Clinical bacteriology; Klinisk bakteriologi;

    Sammanfattning : Streptococcus agalactiae, also designated group B streptococcus (GBS), is a Gram-positive coccus, and it is an important pathogen that causes invasive disease in neonates, pregnant adults, and non-pregnant adults with predisposing conditions. The group II intron GBSi1 is one of the major mobile genetic elements identified in S. agalactiae. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Modern healthcare is the result of scientific advancement across disciplines and has enabled us to understand the rationale behind many diseases and how to treat or cure them; but still a myriad of unanswered questions remains. Especially infectious diseases play an important role in healthcare as they pose a constant threat for global health and well-being. LÄS MER
