  1. 1. In vitro Pharmacodynamics of Antifungal Agents in the Treatment of Candida Infections

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anders Lignell; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; amphotericin B; antagonism; Candida; human serum; inhibition; interaction; in vitro; kinetic model; pharmacodynamics; pharmacokinetics; posaconazole; protein binding; voriconazole; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Infectious diseases; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Infektionssjukdomar; Infektionssjukdomar; Infectious Diseases;

    Abstract : Pharmacodynamic studies are important for the optimal use of antimicrobial agents. Combination antifungal therapy may be one method to improve outcome in invasive Candida infections. READ MORE

  2. 2. D-arabinitol in the diagnosis of invasive candidiasis

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Science and Department of Laboratory Medicine, Medical Faculty, Lund University, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Gudrun Sigmundsdottir; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : D-arabitol; D-arabinitol; Candida; invasive candidiasis; production rate; diagnosis; neonate; neutropenic; HIV; MEDICIN; MEDICINE;

    Abstract : Invasive candidiasis (IC) is a serious condition and timely diagnosis with early initiation of antifungal therapy is imerative for improving outcomes. Arabinitol is a sugar alcohol with two stereoisomers, D-arabinitol (DA) and L-arabintiol (LA). READ MORE

  3. 3. Bioreduction of Carbonyl Compounds to Chiral Alcohols by Whole Yeast Cells: Process Optimisation, Strain Design and Non-Conventional Yeast Screening

    University dissertation from Secretary, Applied Microbiology Lund University

    Author : Michael Katz; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : carbonyl; bicyclic diketone; yeast; candida; cerevisiae; reductase; ketone; reduction; whole cell; YMR226c; YDR368w; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Biokemisk teknik; Biochemical technology; mykologi; virologi; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; Kemi; Chemistry; Biologi; Biology;

    Abstract : Chiral building blocks are needed for the production of drugs and fine chemicals, which requires the use of several synthetic routes to produce a specific enantiomer of interest. One promising approach to introduce chirality into molecules is the stereo-selective whole cell bioreduction of carbonyl compounds or ketones to the corresponding chiral alcohols. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies on colonization and infection with Staphylococcus aureus and other microbes in skin disease

    University dissertation from University of Gothenburg

    Author : Mikael Alsterholm; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; balanoposthitis; microbes; Staphylococcus aureus; Candida; Malassezia; fusidic acid; fusidic acid-resistant S. aureus; impetigo; atopic dermatitis; azoles; clioquinol; halquinol; hydrogen peroxide; skin infection;

    Abstract : The skin is colonized with a wide range of microbes. Some offer vital protection from colonization and infection with pathogenic strains while others have the capacity to cause or exacerbate disease. READ MORE

  5. 5. Interaction Studies of Secreted Aspartic Proteases (Saps) from Candida albicans : Application for Drug Discovery

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Dan Backman; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; SPR Biosensor; Secreted aspartic proteases; Candida albicans; interaction kinetics; drug discovery; protease inhibitor; Biokemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi;

    Abstract : This thesis is focused on enzymatic studies of the secreted aspartic proteases (Saps) from Candida albicans as a tool for discovery of anti-candida drugs. C. albicans causes infections in a number of different locations, which differ widely in the protein substrates available and pH. Since C. READ MORE
