    Abstract : Staphylococcus epidermidis is ubiquitous in the human microbiota, but also an important pathogen in healthcare-associated infections, such as prosthetic joint infections (PJIs). In this thesis, aspects of the molecular epidemiology of S. READ MORE

  2. 2. Staphylococcal prosthetic joint infections : similar, but still different

    Abstract : Staphylococci constitute a major part of our commensal flora but are also the most common bacteria causing prosthetic joint infections (PJIs), a dreaded complication of arthroplasty surgery. However, not all staphylococci are the same. READ MORE

    Abstract : Background Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) and in particular Staphylococcus epidermidis have emerged as major pathogens primarily causing nosocomial infections in patients with indwelling medical devices. These infections are often caused by multidrug-resistant strains of S. epidermidis (MDRSE). READ MORE

  5. 5. A fibrinogen-binding protein from Staphylococcus epidermidis

    Author : Lei Pei; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Staphylococcus epidermidis, a coagulase negative staphylococci (CoNS), is a major component of human flora. It is one of the leading pathogens of nosocomial infections, particularly associated with foreign body infections. READ MORE
