  1. 1. Development of a robust and rapid microfluidics-based antibiotic susceptibility test : From prototype to clinical implementation

    Författare :Christer Malmberg; Johan Kreuger; Thomas Tängdén; Till Bachmann; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Even though bacteria normally are rapidly cleared from the blood by the immune system, a blood stream infection may arise, in turn possibly leading to sepsis and septic shock. Sepsis is a life-threatening condition, where the inflammatory response to infection targets tissues and organs. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Lessons from diagnosis-prescribing and antibiotic resistance surveillance in Ujjain, India : the lull before the storm

    Författare :Ashish Pathak; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; antibiotic prescribing;

    Sammanfattning : Background: The evolution of antibiotic resistance is a global public health crisis building over decades. In this build-up antibiotic use has been the main driver for antibiotic resistance. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Molecular characterisation of antibiotic resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis

    Författare :Pontus Juréen; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : To counteract the emergence of multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) a number of approaches have been proposed, amongst which are the sound usage of the present anti-TB drugs and the development of prompt and specific tools for the diagnosis of resistance. To examine the role of drugs in the treatment of resistant TB, we investigated the general crossresistance between kanamycin and amikacin, which has been reported in numerous studies. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Rapid microbiological diagnosis of infections in sterile body fluids including blood

    Författare :Osman Altun; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Infections of normally sterile body fluids (SBF) including blood, cerebrospinal-, pleural-, peritoneal, – pericardial and synovial fluid are critical and require early diagnosis and rapid initiation of appropriate antimicrobial therapy. With the advanced and invasive care of modern medicine, infections of SBF are increasing worldwide. LÄS MER
