  1. 1. PCR detection of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae in pneumonia patients

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Guma M. K. Abdeldaim; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : Lower respiratory tract infections; Pneumonia; Streptococcus pneumoniae; Haemophilus influenzae; real-time PCR;

    Abstract : PCR is a rapid, reproducible method for nucleic acid detection. However, this technology displays significant deficiencies when applied in clinical microbiology. This work’s aim was to improve current diagnostics and provide sensitive and quantitative real-time PCRs. READ MORE

  2. 2. Multidrug-Resistant Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae Treatment, Selection and International Spread

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Thomas Tängdén; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Escherichia coli; Klebsiella pneumoniae; extended-spectrum beta-lactamases; carbapenemases; metallo-beta-lactamases; synergy; antibiotic interventions;

    Abstract : The prevalence of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae producing extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) and carbapenemases is increasing worldwide. Therapeutic options for infections with these bacteria are limited not only by the production of ESBLs and carbapenemases, which confer resistance to cephalosporins and carbapenems, but also by frequent co-resistance to other antibiotics.

  3. 3. Antibiotic resistance gone wild A One Health perspective on carriage, selection and transmission of Extended-Spectrum Cephalosporinase- and Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Clara Atterby; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Antibiotic resistance; E. coli; K. pneumoniae; ESBL; AmpC; Carbapenemase; ciprofloxacin resistance; colistin resistance; rural; wildlife; birds; sub-MIC; MSC; Cambodia; environment; epidemiology; Infektionssjukdomar; Infectious Diseases;

    Abstract : Antibiotics have saved millions of lives since they came into clinical use during the Second World War in the 1940s. Today, our effective use of antibiotics is under great threat due to emerging antibiotic resistance in bacteria. This thesis addresses the problems of antibiotic resistance from a ”One Health” perspective. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bacterial viruses targeting multi-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Harald Eriksson; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bacterial viruses; Bacteriophage; Phage; Phage therapy; multi-resistant bacteria; Klebsiella pneumoniae; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : The global increase in antibiotic resistance levels in bacteria is a growing concern to our society and highlights the need for alternative strategies to combat bacterial infections. Bacterial viruses (phages) are the natural predators of bacteria and are as diverse as their hosts, but our understanding of them is limited. READ MORE

  5. 5. Penicillin-Nonsusceptible Streptococcus pneumoniae in Malmö, Sweden. Aspects of Epidemiology, Microbiology and Genetics

    University dissertation from Intellecta docusys

    Author : Percy Nilsson Wimar; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Day-care centers; Streptococcus pneumoniae; Penicillin-nonsusceptible; Medicin människa och djur ;

    Abstract : S. pneumoniae is a major cause of common diseases such as acute otitis media and pneumonia, as well as more serious illnesses like septicemia and meningitis. The increasing level of resistance in pneumococci threatens to change the tradition of treating common respiratory infections with narrow-spectrum penicillin. READ MORE
