  1. 1. Dynamics of Resistant Plasmodium falciparum Parasites

    Author : Nizar Enweji; Göte Swedberg; Anna Färnert; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : Persistence of drug resistant Plasmodium falciparum is a major problem to management and control malaria in endemic areas. The focus of this thesis was to study the dynamics of resistant P. falciparum parasites. READ MORE

  2. 2. Microbial Responses to Antibiotics – Stability of Resistance and Extended Potential of Targeting the Folate Synthesis

    Author : Maria Jönsson; Göte Swedberg; Steven Meshnick; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; sulfonamide resistance; macrolide; commensal flora; substrate channeling; folate synthesis; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Resistance to antimicrobials is an increasing problem in the world of today, and develops faster than man can counter. It is therefore of importance to study metabolic pathways in order to develop new antibiotics, but also to understand how resistance spreads and stabilizes in microbial populations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Factors Influencing Evolution to Antimalarial Drug Resistance in Plasmodium falciparum in Sudan and The Gambia

    Author : Amany Kheir; Göte Swedberg; Susanne Kerje; Hamza Babiker; Staffan Svärd; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cross-mating; fitness; microsatellite haplotypes; mosquito infectivity; Infectious diseases; Infektionssjukdomar; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : Drug resistance is a major obstacle to management and control of malaria and currently progressing at a rapid rate across Africa. This thesis has examined factors influencing evolution of resistant P. falciparum at two sites in Africa, including parasite migration, cross mating and fitness cost of resistance. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sulphonamide Resistance in Neisseria meningitidis and Commensal Neisseria Species

    Author : Yvonne Qvarnström; Göte Swedberg; Dan Andersson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; sulphonamide resistance; Neisseria; natural transformation; adaptive evolution; substrate channelling; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases; Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar;

    Abstract : Extensive use of the sulphonamide drugs against the bacterium Neisseria meningitidis has resulted in drug resistance development. Sulphonamide resistance in N. meningitidis is caused by alterations in the chromosomal folP gene, coding for DHPS (dihydropteroate synthase). READ MORE
