  1. 1. The cytolethal distending toxin of Haemophilus ducreyi. Purification and biological activity

    Author : Catharina Wising; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Haemophilus ducreyi; chancroid; STD; CDT; HdCDT;

    Abstract : Haemophilus ducreyi is a Gram-negative bacterium that causes the sexually transmitted disease (STD) chancroid. The disease is endemic in many developing countries, and occurs as restricted outbreaks in the industrialized part of the world. READ MORE

    Abstract : Genital ulcer diseases (GUD) caused by Haemophilus ducreyi, Treponema pallidum and herpessimplex type 2 (HSV-2) are an important health problem in many developing countries. Ulcerativesexually transmitted infections (STIs) have been associated with increased acquisition andtransmission of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1). READ MORE

    Abstract : Haemophilus ducreyi is a fastidious Gram-negative bacterium that causes the sexually transmitted disease chancroid. The disease is endemic in many developing countries and occurs as restricted outbreaks in the industrialised part of the world. READ MORE

  4. 4. Intoxication of mammalian cells by the cytolethal distending toxin of Haemophilus ducreyi : A novel mechanism of action

    Author : Ximena Cortes Bratti; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The cytolethal distending toxins (CDTs) are a newly described family of bacterial protein toxins with a novel mechanism of action: DNA damage. Haemophilus ducreyi produces a cytotoxin that belongs to this family. This bacterium causes chancroid, a sexually transmitted disease, characterised by mucocutaneous, slowly healing genital ulcers.

    Abstract : Chancroid caused by Haemophilus ducreyi, has been described as a significantly predisposing factor of HIV heterosexual transmission in an endemic region of both diseases. Antibiotic resistances are extensively found in H. ducreyi and many of the resistances are due to the presence of resistance plasmids. READ MORE
