    Abstract : The Gram-positive cocci, Staphylococcus aureus, coagulase negative staphylococci (CoNS), Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium, are the bacteria most often isolated from patients with hospital acquired infections. S. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interactions between staphylococci, heparin, heparin dependent growth factors and biomaterials

    University dissertation from Department of Infectious Diseases and Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Author : Corina Fallgren; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; and biomaterials bonded with antibiotics; heparin-binding growth factors; staphylococci; heparin; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Resident skin micro-organisms such as S. epidermidis and other coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS), are by far the most common causes of biomaterial-associated infections. These micro-organisms often exhibit surface adhesins that specifically bind serum and tissue proteins adsorbed to implanted biomaterials. READ MORE
