    Abstract : Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are clustered in certain individuals but the molecular basis of disease susceptibility is not known. A single gene was shown to control the susceptibility to acute pyelonephritis and renal scarring in mice. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Förbättrad bedömning av njurskador hos barn med urinvägsinfektioner Urinvägsinfektioner är vanliga och förekommer hos 1 - 4 % av alla barn. Urinvägsinfektion kan ge upphov till njurinflammation och ibland kvarstående njurskada (ärr) efter läkning. READ MORE

  3. 3. Serum Amyloid A Protein (SAA) in Healthy and Infected Individuals

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anders Lannergård; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]

    Abstract : Serum amyloid A protein (SAA) is an acute phase protein that has recently gained increasing interest as a potential marker for disease and treatment monitoring. We investigated SAA and CRP levels in (a) patients with various common infectious diseases (n=98), (b) patients with pyelonephritis (n=37) versus patients with cystitis (n=32), (c) healthy individuals of varying ages (n=231), (d) very immature newborn infants with or without nosocomial infections (NIs) (n=72) and (e) patients with bacterial infections treated with cefuroxime (n=81).

  4. 4. Molecular determinants of disease severity in urinary tract infection

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Ines Ambite; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Asymptomatic bacteriuria; urinary tract infection; acute pyelonephritis; cystitis; Escherichia coli 83972; host response; NlpD; RNA Polymerase II; transcription regulation; inflammasome; Il-1β; ASC; NLRP-3; hyper-inflammatory disorder; MMP-7; IL-1RA; genetic susceptibility; IRF-7; siRNA therapy; P fimbriae; type 1 fimbriae;

    Abstract : In the urinary tract, Escherichia coli infection may result in life-threatening disease, or asymptomatic bacterial carriage, comparable to bacterial commensalism in the gut. Pathogenic strains trigger a disease provoking host response which differs depending on the infected organ. READ MORE

  5. 5. Influence of host genetics on innate immunity and susceptibility to urinary tract infection

    University dissertation from Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Glycobiology, Lund University

    Author : Bryndis Ragnarsdottir; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neutrophils; IRF3; Innate Immunity; urinary tract infections; acute pyelonephritis; asymptomatic bacteriuria; Toll-like receptor 4; CXCR1; TLR4 adaptors; polymorphisms;

    Abstract : It has been known for a long time that the clinical manifestations of urinary tract infections (UTI) differ markedly between individuals, ranging from a sometimes beneficial, asymptomatic state to life threatening infections. This variability in clinical manifestation can be explained in part by the arsenal of virulence factors of the bacteria but the predisposition of the patient is equally important. READ MORE
