  1. 1. Antibiotic Resistance in Wastewater : Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)and antibiotic resistance genes

    Författare :Stefan Börjesson; Per-Eric Lindgren; Johanna Ericson Sollid; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MRSA; SCCmec; spa typing; Staphylococcus aureus; methicillin; B-lactam; aminoglycoside; tetracycline; antibiotic; wastewater; wastewater treatment plant; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi;

    Sammanfattning : A large part of the antibiotics consumed ends up in wastewater, and in the wastewater the antibiotics may exert selective pressure for or maintain resistance among microorganisms. Antibiotic resistant bacteria and genes encoding antibiotic resistance are commonly detected in wastewater, often at higher rates and concentrations compared to surface water. LÄS MER

  2. 2. New antibiotic resistance genes and their diversity

    Författare :Fanny Berglund; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; metagenomics; β-lactamases; hidden Markov model; antibiotic resistance; carbapenemases; big data; tetracycline resistance;

    Sammanfattning : Antibiotic resistance is increasing worldwide and is considered a severe threat to public health. Often, antibiotic resistance is caused by antibiotic resistance genes, of which many are hypothesized to have been transferred into human pathogens from environmental bacteria. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Antimicrobials in sewage treatment plants : occurrence, fate and resistance

    Författare :Marcus Östman; Mats Tysklind; Jerker Fick; Erik Björn; Klaus Kümmerer; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biocides; antibiotics; sewage treatment plants; wastewater; sludge; ozonation; activated carbon; antibiotic resistance; antimicrobials; mass flows; LC-MS MS; environment; advanced water treatment;

    Sammanfattning : The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified antibiotic resistance as a major threat to human health. The environment has been suggested to play an important role in the emergence of antibiotic resistant bacteria. The external environment can act as a source of resistance genes that could potentially be transferred into human pathogens. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Group A Streptococci; Epidemiology and Genetics of Antibiotic Resistance

    Författare :Aftab Jasir; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; typing; epidemiology; M protein; emm gene; erythromycin; tetracycline; macrolides; streptococci; antibiotics; mykologi; virologi; bakteriologi; Mikrobiologi; mycology; virology; bacteriology;

    Sammanfattning : Group A streptococci (GAS) cause throat and skin infections, severe invasive diseases as well as the non-suppurative complications acute rheumatic fever and glomerulonephritis. GAS have retained susceptibility to betalactam drugs, but resistance to alternative antibiotics is of concern. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Antibiotic resistance in the environment: a contribution from metagenomic studies

    Författare :Johan Bengtsson-Palme; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; antibiotic resistance; metagenomics; bioinformatics; next generation sequencing; resistance selection;

    Sammanfattning : Antibiotic resistance accounts for hundreds of thousands of deaths annually, and its projected increase has made the WHO recognize it as a major global health threat. In the last decade, evidence has mounted suggesting that the environment plays an important role in the progression of resistance. LÄS MER
