  1. 1. Rift Valley fever : development of diagnostics and vaccines

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Jonas Näslund; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : Rift Valley Fever; vaccines; diagnostics; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar; medicinsk virologi; Medical Virology; infektionssjukdomar; Infectious Diseases;

    Abstract : Rift Valley Fever virus (RVFV) causes an infection with severe impact on animal and human health. The disease is endemic throughout almost the entire African continent and large regions of the Arabian Peninsula. During epidemics, high mortality is observed in animals, especially among cattle, goats, and sheep. READ MORE

    Abstract : BackgroundCoagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) and in particular Staphylococcus epidermidis have emerged as major pathogens primarily causing nosocomial infections in patients with indwelling medical devices. These infections are often caused by multidrug-resistant strains of S. epidermidis (MDRSE). READ MORE

    Abstract : The study of bacterial evolution is fundamental for addressing current problems of antibiotic resistance and emerging infectious diseases and lays a solid foundation for successful and rational design in biotechnology and synthetic biology. The main aim of this thesis is to test evolutionary hypotheses, largely based on theoretical considerations and sequence analysis, by designing scenarios in a laboratory setting to obtain experimental data.

  4. 4. Genetic genealogy and epidemiology of Francisella

    University dissertation from Umeå : Department of Clinical Microbiology, Umeå University

    Author : Kerstin Svensson; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : Francisella tularensis; tularemia; genotyping; epidemiology; GIS; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Infectious diseases; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Infektionssjukdomar; Infectious Diseases; infektionssjukdomar;

    Abstract : This thesis is about analyzing genetic differences among isolates of Francisella tularensis – the tularemia-causing bacterium. To elucidate how these bacterial isolates are related, and their geographical and genetic origins, I have developed typing assays for Francisella and used them to study the epidemiology of tularemia.

  5. 5. Reactive oxygen and nitrogen in host defence against Francisella tularensis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Klinisk mikrobiologi

    Author : Helena Lindgren; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : Cell and molecular biology; Francisella tularensis; inducible nitric oxide synthase; phagocyte oxidase; macrophages; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi; klinisk bakteriologi; Clinical Bacteriology;

    Abstract : Francisella tularensis, the causative agent of tularemia, is a potent human and animal pathogen. Initially upon infection of the host, intramacrophage proliferation of F. tularensis occurs but after activation of the acquired host immunity, the phagocytes become activated to kill the bacterium. In my thesis, I focused on mechanisms utilized by F. READ MORE
