    Abstract : Microorganisms are everywhere! They can tolerate many diverse extreme environments, such as the human body. Even though many of us might associate the word microorganism with infections and disease, most are actually either harmless or even beneficial for us. READ MORE

  2. 2. Battling Bacterial Biofilm - antibiotic regimens targeting Grampositive pathogens in biofilm

    University dissertation from Anna Holmberg

    Author : Anna Holmberg; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; antibiotic susceptibility; Biofilm; prosthetic joint infection; MBEC; Enterococcus faecalis; Enterococcus faecium; Propionibacterium acnes.;

    Abstract : AbstractBacteria in most environments encase themselves in a hydrated matrix of polysaccharide and protein, forming organized communities called biofilms. In the biofilm bacteria are protected against hostile environments. Biofilms are important clinically because of their persistence despite host defence and their recalcitrance to antimicrobials.

  4. 4. Inflammasomes : defense guardians in host-microbe defence

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Berolla Sahdo; Örebro universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Innate immunity; inflammasome; leukocytes; cytokines; Staphylococcus aureus; Propionibacterium acnes; inflammation; infection; gene variants; polymorphism.; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : The inflammasomes are emerging as key regulators of the innate immune response as they response to cellular infection, tissue damage and/or stress. Activated inflammasomes provide a signalling platform for caspase-1 activation which subsequently processes the maturation of interleukin (IL)-1β and IL-18, and in addition promotes cell death, named pyroptosis.

  5. 5. Infection induced chronic inflammation and it's association with prostate cancer initiation and progression

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Sabina Davidsson; Örebro universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; chronic inflammation; CD4 helper T cells; CD8 cytotoxic T cells; regulatory T cells; Propionibacterium acnes; Medicine; Medicin;

    Abstract : An association between cancer development and inflammation has long been suggested. Approximately 20% of all human cancers in adults are assumed to result from chronic inflammation. The aim of this thesis was to investigate if infection-induced chronic inflammation plays a role in prostate carcinogenesis. READ MORE
