    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Streptococcus pyogenes (GAS) är en viktig sjukdomsframkallande bakterie som orsakar alltifrån lindriga infektioner som halsfluss (tonsillit) och svinkoppar (impetigo) till livshotande djupa infektioner som nekrotiserande fasceit eller ”Toxic shock syndrom”. På grund av det snabba sjukdomsförloppet i de livshotande infektionerna har streptokockerna fått beteckningen ”mördarbakterier” i dagspressen. READ MORE
