    Keywords : Communicable diseases; Chlamydophila pneumoniae; Chlamydia pneumoniae; trace elements; atherosclerosis; aortic valve stenosis; thoracic aortic aneurysm; aortic dissection; hepcidin; iron; Infektionssjukdomar;

    Abstract : Chlamydophila pneumoniae (C. pneumoniae) has been suggested as a stimulator of chronic inflammation in atherosclerosis. C. pneumoniae DNA was demonstrated in aortic biopsies in 50% of patients with stable angina pectoris or acute coronary syndrome undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Role of Chlamydophila Pneumoniae in the Inflammatory Response and Expansion of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms

    Abstract : Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a common disease that develops gradually over several years and is characterised by weakening and dilatation of the aortic wall. AAAs also demonstrates a marked inflammatory infiltrate throughout the aortic wall. Chlamydophila pneumoniae (C. pneumoniae), is a common bacterium. READ MORE

  3. 3. Blood Culture Negative Endocarditis

    Author : Maria Werner; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Infective endocarditis IE ; Blood culture negative endocarditis CNE ; Blood culture; Diagnosis; Mortality; Bartonella; Coxiella burnetii; Chlamydophila pneumoniae; Prevalence; Aminoglycoside;

    Abstract : The lethal disease infective endocarditis (IE) is caused by microorganisms that attack heart valves. Early diagnosis and identification of the causative agents are important for the choice of treatment. Optimal treatment may be difficult to achieve if blood culture negative endocarditis (CNE) is present. READ MORE

  4. 4. Diagnostic methods for bacterial etiology in adult community-acquired pneumonia

    Author : Kristoffer Strålin; Åke Örtqvist; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The etiologic agent is often unidentified in patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). Development of new diagnostic methods has been encouraged. We aimed to develop a multiplex PCR (mPCR) assay for common bacterial pathogens and evaluate the diagnostic usefulness of this assay and of respiratory culture in CAP. READ MORE
