    Abstract : Rational use of antibiotics–using antibiotics only when needed and in the right way–is a prioritized goal in policy aimed at preventing antimicrobial resistance. A vast body of research is devoted to understanding why unnecessary antibiotics are prescribed. READ MORE

  2. 2. A tale of two antibiotics Fusidic acid and Viomycin

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mikael Holm; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein Synthesis; Antibiotics; Fusidic acid; Viomycin; Translocation; Accuracy; Molecular Biotechnology; Molekylär bioteknik;

    Abstract : Antibiotics that target the bacterial ribosome make up about half of all clinically used antibiotics. We have studied two ribosome targeting drugs: Fusidic acid and Viomycin. Fusidic acid inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by binding to elongation factor G (EF-G) on the ribosome, thereby inhibiting translocation of the bacterial ribosome. READ MORE

  3. 3. Resistant pneumococci and use of antibiotics

    University dissertation from Department of Community Medicine, Malmö University Hospital

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Antibiotikaresistens hos pneumokocker har utvecklats till ett problem i hela världen. Interkontinental spridning av ett fåtal resistenta kloner verkar stå för den snabba ökningen av förekomsten av pneumokocker med nedsatt känslighet för penicillin (PNSP). READ MORE

  4. 4. Antibiotics and infusion phlebitis. Clinical and experimental studies

    University dissertation from Peter Lanbeck, Department of Infectious Diseases, Malmo University Hospital, SE-205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Läkemedel kan sprutas direkt i ytliga blodkärl genom en så kallad perifer venkateter (PVK). Sådan behandling kallas för intravenös. När läkemedel ges intravenöst orsakar de ibland inflammation i den ven där de sprutas in, vilket kan medföra en ytlig blodpropp i kärlet. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Modeling of Antibiotics and Bacterial Drug Resistance

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : Exposure to antibiotics is an important factor influencing the development of bacterial resistance.  In an era where very few new antibiotics are being developed, a strategy for the development of optimal dosing regimen and combination treatment that reduces the rate of resistance development and overcome existing resistance is of utmost importance.
