  1. 1. Propionibacterium acnes and its phages

    Author : Rolf Lood; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Propionibacterium acnes; biofilm; bacteriophage; Siphovirus; pseudolysogeny; heme oxygenase; free radicals; recombinant protein expression; vector;

    Abstract : Microorganisms are everywhere! They can tolerate many diverse extreme environments, such as the human body. Even though many of us might associate the word microorganism with infections and disease, most are actually either harmless or even beneficial for us. READ MORE

  2. 2. Characterisation of antibiotic-resistant Propionibacterium acnes from acne vulgaris and other diseases

    Author : Cristina Oprica; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; P. acnes; acne vulgaris; clinical isolates; antimicrobial resistance; PFGE.;

    Abstract : Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) is an anaerobic, Gram-positive bacterium that belongs to the normal microflora. The skin is the major habitat but it can also be found in other body regions. P. READ MORE

  3. 3. Battling Bacterial Biofilm - antibiotic regimens targeting Grampositive pathogens in biofilm

    Author : Anna Holmberg; Sektion III; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biofilm; antibiotic susceptibility; prosthetic joint infection; MBEC; Enterococcus faecalis; Enterococcus faecium; Propionibacterium acnes.;

    Abstract : AbstractBacteria in most environments encase themselves in a hydrated matrix of polysaccharide and protein, forming organized communities called biofilms. In the biofilm bacteria are protected against hostile environments. Biofilms are important clinically because of their persistence despite host defence and their recalcitrance to antimicrobials.

  4. 4. Photdynamic therapy for treatment of Acne Vulgaris in clinical studies; dose response and mode of action

    Author : Camilla Hörfelt; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Photodynamic therapy; Acne Vulgaris; Delta-aminolaevulinic acid; Methyl-aminolaevulinic acid; Porphyrins; Propionibacterium acnes; Fluorescence imaging;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the use of photodynamic therapy (PDT) for treatment of Acne Vulgaris. Acne Vulgaris is one of the most common skin disorders. Conventional treatments target the pathogenic factors and include a variety of topical and oral medications such as antibiotics. READ MORE

  5. 5. Inflammasomes : defense guardians in host-microbe defence

    Author : Berolla Sahdo; Eva Särndahl; Bo Söderquist; Anna Norrby Teglund; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Innate immunity; inflammasome; leukocytes; cytokines; Staphylococcus aureus; Propionibacterium acnes; inflammation; infection; gene variants; polymorphism.; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : The inflammasomes are emerging as key regulators of the innate immune response as they response to cellular infection, tissue damage and/or stress. Activated inflammasomes provide a signalling platform for caspase-1 activation which subsequently processes the maturation of interleukin (IL)-1β and IL-18, and in addition promotes cell death, named pyroptosis.
