    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Staphylococcus aureus is a human commensal colonizing about 30 per cent of the population. Besides, it is a frequent cause of infections such as skin, wound and deep tissue infections and also more life-threatening conditions such as pneumonia, endocarditis and septicaemia.

  4. 4. Biologics in Staphylococcus aureus arthritis

    Author : Abukar Ali; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Staphylococcus aureus; CTLA4-Ig; IL-1 Ra; anti-TNF therapy; mouse; septic arthritis;

    Abstract : The emergence of new type of drugs known as biologics has led to rapid disease improvements in many autoimmune arthritic patients. Nevertheless, most of these biologics are immunomodulators that may consequently increase the susceptibility of patients towards infections, such as septic arthritis. READ MORE

    Abstract : Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) affects about 10% of the European population, and is considered a great scourge. Its cause is not clear. Findings of Staphylococcus aureus in the maxillary sinus are common in CRS patients, but are usually regarded as insignificant due to the bacterium’s attribute as a commensal elsewhere. S. READ MORE
