  1. 1. Streptococcus pneumoniae epidemiological, clinical and serological studies

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Lars Å. Burman; Umeå universitet.; [1993]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Streptococcus pneumoniae; incidence; predisposing factors; prognosis; serotyping; etiology of pneumonia; diagnostic methods; COA; CIE; pneumococcal serology;

    Abstract : A retrospective study of invasive pneumococcal disease in patients from Greater Göteborg in 1964- 1980 identified 125 cases of meningitis, 305 of pneumonia, 61 of septicemia with unknown focus, and 17 with other manifestations, all verified by cultures from normally sterile body fluids. The incidence was several times higher in infants and in the elderly than in any other age-group. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular epidemiology of streptococcus pneumoniae

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Author : Sarah Browall; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]

    Abstract : Streptococcus pneumoniae, also named pneumococci, is often part of the normal flora in the nasopharynx of healthy children. However, pneumococci are also a major cause of morbidity and mortality world-wide, and colonization is required for pneumococci to cause severe invasive diseases such as septicaemia and meningitis.

  4. 4. 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

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

    University dissertation from Intellecta docusys
