  1. 21. Biofilm adhesion on silicone materials

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sevil Atarijabarzadeh; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Silicone composite high voltage insulators are sometimes contaminated by microorganisms in outdoor applications, which results in the insulator becoming conductive and thereafter failure of the insulators. In this work, it has been tried to develop silicone materials with antimicrobial properties. READ MORE

  2. 22. Quinolone resistance in Bacteroides fragilis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, two opportunistic pathogens

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Laboratory Medicine

    Author : Herin Oh; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Quinolone; resistance; B. fragilis; P. aeruginosa; topoisomerase; efflux;

    Abstract : Opportunistic pathogens can cause infections in case of structural or functional defects in the host. Examples of Gram-negative opportunists are the Bacteroides fragilis group, anaerobic, non-spore forming rods and the aerobic, non-fermentative rod Pseudomonas aeruginosa. READ MORE

  3. 23. Development of lipodisks as carriers for cationic amphiphilic peptides

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karin Reijmar Brunnström; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Antibiotics have made a tremendous contribution to mankind. They are one of the most successful medicines in human history. However, more and more bacterial strains develop resistance and the risk to public health can hardly be overstated. New types of antibiotics are urgently needed. READ MORE

  4. 24. Bacterial gene expression inhibition with antisense peptide nucleic acids

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Center for Genomics Research

    Author : Rikard Dryselius; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Regulated gene expression is widely useful for gene function studies and as a means to control genes important in disease. There are many methods for regulating the expression of genes, and one approach is to use antisense oligonucleotides that bind complementary mRNAs to inhibit translation. READ MORE

  5. 25. The Physiological Cost of Antibiotic Resistance

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mirjana Macvanin; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; fusidic acid; fitness cost; protein synthesis; EF-G; ppGpp; RpoS; oxidative stress; heme; Mikrobiologi; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar;

    Abstract : Becoming antibiotic resistant is often associated with fitness costs for the resistant bacteria. This is seen as a loss of competitiveness against the antibiotic-sensitive wild-type in an antibiotic-free environment. READ MORE
