  1. 1. Immunopathogenesis of relapsing fever borreliosis

    Författare :Marie Andersson; Sven Bergström; Betty P. Guo; Janis J. Weis; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Relapsing fever; Borrelia; mouse models; biological barriers; pathology; chemokines; cytokines; pregnancy; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Relapsing fever (RF) is caused by different species of Borrelia transmitted by soft ticks or by the human body louse. Illness is characterized by reappearing peaks of high concentrations of spirochetes in blood, concordant with fever peaks separated by asymptomatic periods. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Infectious diseases such as malaria and relapsing fever borreliosis (RF), cause severe human mortality and morbidity in developing countries. Malaria, caused by Plasmodium spp. parasites, is estimated by the World Health Organization to cause 1.5-2. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Antigenic variation in relapsing fever Borrelia

    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Borrelia; Relapsing fever; Antigenic variation; Vmp lipoprotein; Rosetting;

    Sammanfattning : The spirochete Borrelia hermsii avoids the immune response of its mammalian host through multiphasic antigenic variation. Serotype specificity is determined by Variable major proteins (Vmp), in the outer membrane. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Pathobiology of African relapsing fever Borrelia

    Författare :Christer Larsson; Sven Bergström; Sally Cutler; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Relapsing fever (RF) is a disease caused by tick- or louse-transmitted bacteria of the genus Borrelia. It occurs worldwide but is most common in Africa where it is one of the most prevalent bacterial diseases. The main manifestation is a recurring fever which coincides with massive numbers of bacteria in the blood. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Borrelia channel-forming proteins : structure and function
