  1. 1. Deliberations on the impact of antibiotic contamination on dissemination of antibiotic resistance genes in aquatic environments

    Author : Björn Berglund; Per-Eric Lindgren; Dan I. Andersson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The great success of antibiotics in treating bacterial infectious diseases has been hampered by the increasing prevalence of antibiotic resistant bacteria. Not only does antibiotic resistance threaten to increase the difficulty in treating bacterial infectious diseases, but it could also make medical procedures such as routine surgery and organ transplantations very dangerous to perform.

  2. 2. Antibiotic Resistance in Wastewater : Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)and antibiotic resistance genes

    Author : Stefan Börjesson; Per-Eric Lindgren; Johanna Ericson Sollid; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MRSA; SCCmec; spa typing; Staphylococcus aureus; methicillin; B-lactam; aminoglycoside; tetracycline; antibiotic; wastewater; wastewater treatment plant; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : A large part of the antibiotics consumed ends up in wastewater, and in the wastewater the antibiotics may exert selective pressure for or maintain resistance among microorganisms. Antibiotic resistant bacteria and genes encoding antibiotic resistance are commonly detected in wastewater, often at higher rates and concentrations compared to surface water. READ MORE

    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Lyme borreliosis (LB) is the most common tick-borne disease in the northern hemisphere. The infection is caused by spirochaetes from the Borrelia (B.) burgdorferi sensu lato (s.l. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular and serological tools for clinical diagnostics of Lyme borreliosis - can the laboratory analysis be improved?

    Author : Malin Lager; Anna J. Henningsson; Peter Wilhelmsson; Per-Eric Lindgren; Andreas Matussek; Fredrik Elgh; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Lyme borreliosis (LB) is caused by spirochetes within the Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato complex and is the most common tick-transmitted disease in the northern hemisphere. The transmission of the spirochetes to humans in Europe is done by the Ixodes ricinus ticks, which can also transmit the relapsing fever species Borrelia miyamotoi. READ MORE
