  2. 2. Molecular detection and epidemiological studies of atypical bacteria causing respiratory tract infections

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karolina Gullsby; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chlamydia pneumoniae; Mycoplasma pneumoniae; Bordetella pertussis; real-time PCR; P1 typing; MLVA; whole-genome sequencing; macrolide resistance; molecular diagnostics; molecular epidemiology;

    Abstract : Respiratory infections are common causes of morbidity and mortality. Chlamydia pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae and Bordetella pertussis cause respiratory infection, often with similar symptoms. Molecular diagnostic methods are preferred since these bacteria are difficult to culture. READ MORE

  3. 3. Immunopathogenesis of Gai2-deficient mice. A model of inflammatory bowel disease

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Lena Öhman; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Inflammatory Bowel Disease; Mucosa; Apoptosis; Bordetella pertussis; G-protein;

    Abstract : The intestinal mucosa is the largest lymphoid organ in the body, and it simultaneously has to protect us from any pathogen that might enter the gastrointestinal tract as well as maintaining tolerance to most antigens, mainly in the form of dietary constituents and microbial products. A dysfunctional control of local intestinal immune responses may lead to development of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) - the common name for ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn´s disease (CD).

    Abstract : Worldwide, Bordetella pertussis causes some 50 million cases of pertussis, and an estimated 2-300,000 fatalities each year. In Sweden vaccination against pertussis was introduced in the 1950s using diphtheria-tetanus-whole-cell pertussis vaccine (DTPw) until 1979, when it was withdrawn due to concerns about effectiveness.
