  1. 6. From Penicillin Binding Proteins to Community Interventions : Mathematical and Statistical Models Related to Antibiotic Resistance

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Matematiska institutionen

    Author : Patricia Geli Rolfhamre; Stockholms universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; antibiotic resistance; mathematical modeling; pharmacokinetics; pharmacodynamics; penicillin binding protein; postantibiotic effect; reversibility; selection; community intervention; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics Mathematical statistics; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik Matematisk statistik; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : Antibiotic resistance has become a major public health concern and mathematical models are important analytical tools for the understanding, evaluation and prediction of the resistance problem and related control strategies.The risk of emerging antibiotic resistance and selection has rarely been a concern in the design of antibiotic drug dosing regimens.

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Public Health Sciences

    Author : Eva Pettersson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; antibiotic prescribing;

    Abstract : Background The increasing rate of resistance to antibiotics has become a global concern. High consumption and irrational use of antibiotics is contributing to this development. READ MORE

  3. 8. Evasion and Attack: Structural Studies of a Bacterial Albumin-binding Protein and of a Cephalosporin Biosynthetic Enzyme

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Author : Sara Lejon; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; human serum albumin; GA module; albumin-binding; Finegoldia magna; deacetylcephalosporin C acetyltransferase; cephalosporin C; antibiotic; beta-lactam; biosynthesis; Acremonium chrysogenum; X-ray crystallography; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry Structural biology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi Strukturbiologi;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the crystal structures of two proteins in the context of combatting bacterial infections. The GA module is a bacterial albumin-binding domain from a surface protein expressed by pathogenic strains of the human commensal bacterium Finegoldia magna. READ MORE

  4. 9. On the Diagnosis and Management of Viral Respiratory Infections

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Author : Robin Brittain-Long; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Respiratory virus; Respiratory tract infection; Real-time PCR; Multiplex PCR; Antibiotic use;

    Abstract : Acute respiratory tract infections (ARTIs), are the most common infections in man, and represent a major global health burden. Viruses, most often causing a mild and self-limiting disease, yet with substantial morbidity and high costs for society, mainly cause upper respiratory tract infections. READ MORE

  5. 10. Monitoring anti-infectives and antibiotic resistance genes with focus on analytical method development, effects of antibiotics and national perspectives

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Abstract : Antibiotics are biologically active and are globally used in humans and animal medicine for treatment and in sub-therapeutic amounts as growth promoters in animal husbandry, aquaculture and agriculture. After excretion, inappropriate disposal and discharge from drug production facilities they enter into water bodies either as intact drugs, metabolites or transformed products. READ MORE
