  1. 1. Multidrug-Resistant Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae Treatment, Selection and International Spread

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Thomas Tängdén; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Escherichia coli; Klebsiella pneumoniae; extended-spectrum beta-lactamases; carbapenemases; metallo-beta-lactamases; synergy; antibiotic interventions;

    Abstract : The prevalence of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae producing extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) and carbapenemases is increasing worldwide. Therapeutic options for infections with these bacteria are limited not only by the production of ESBLs and carbapenemases, which confer resistance to cephalosporins and carbapenems, but also by frequent co-resistance to other antibiotics.

  2. 2. Identification of novel antibiotic resistance genes through large-scale data analysis

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg

    Author : Fanny Berglund; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; metagenomics; hidden Markov model; carbapenemases; antibiotic resistance; big data;

    Abstract : Antibiotic resistance is increasing worldwide, and is considered a serious threat to public health by e.g. the World Health Organization. Antibiotic resistance genes are hypothesized to originate from harmless bacteria in and around us, from where they are horizontally transfered into human pathogens. READ MORE

  3. 3. New antibiotic resistance genes and their diversity

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Fanny Berglund; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; metagenomics; β-lactamases; hidden Markov model; antibiotic resistance; carbapenemases; big data; tetracycline resistance;

    Abstract : Antibiotic resistance is increasing worldwide and is considered a severe threat to public health. Often, antibiotic resistance is caused by antibiotic resistance genes, of which many are hypothesized to have been transferred into human pathogens from environmental bacteria. READ MORE

  4. 4. Novel diagnostic methods for rapid characterization of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase- and carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Laboratory Medicine

    Author : Muhammad Humaun Kabir; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli are two of the most clinically important pathogens of the family Enterobacteriaceae. Both can cause severe infections includ-ing urinary tract infections (UTI), bloodstream infections (BSI) and pneumonia. Both are also involved in dissemination of antibiotic resistance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Carbapenemase-Producing Enterobacteriaceae in Wastewater-Associated Aquatic Environments

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Faisal Ahmad Khan; Jana Jass; Bo Söderquist; Ann-Sofie Rehnstam-Holm; [2020]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Antibiotic resistance evolution; ESBL; Klebsiella; Multidrug; VIM;

    Abstract : The emergence of carbapenem resistance due to the carbapenem-hydrolyzing enzymes (carbapenemases) in Enterobacteriaceae has led to limited therapeutic options. The increased resistance to these “last-resort” antibiotics is fueled by overuse and misuse of antibiotics in human medicine and agriculture. READ MORE
