  1. 1. Evaluation of neurotoxic properties of gliotoxin

    Author : Viktoria Axelsson; Anna Forsby; Marion Ehrich; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mycotoxin; gliotoxin; A. fumigatus; cytotoxicity; neurotoxicity; Neurochemistry; Neurokemi;

    Abstract : The occurrence of mould in food and animal feed is a severe problem due to the secondary metabolites, called mycotoxins, which can possess toxic activity. Aspergillus fumigatus is a common fungus found in improperly stored animal feed and the abundance of spores of the fungus is frequently spread into the air. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis of Secondary Metabolites from Aspergillus fumigatus and Penicillium nalgiovense : Antimicrobial Compounds from Filamentous Fungi Isolated from Extreme Environments

  4. 4. Immunocompromised Patients. Infections, Diagnostics and Nosocomial Transmission

    Author : Anna Stjärne Asplund; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The aim of the work presented in this thesis was to improve the management of infections in immunocompromised patients by studying aspects of diagnostics, epidemiology and nosocomial transmission. Infection and rejection are common complications in lung-transplant patients, and early diagnosis and treatment are important for a positive outcome. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mycotoxins in indoor environments. Determination using mass spectrometry

    Author : Erica Bloom; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []

    Abstract : Dampness in indoor environments may cause various health problems. The specific causative agent(s) are unknown but may originate from degradation processes in damp materials, microbial growth, or a combination of these phenomena. The health impact of dampness in buildings is a politically, legally, and economically important question. READ MORE
