  1. 1. Molecular studies on streptococcal surface proteins

    University dissertation from Divison of Medical Microbiology

    Author : Johan Waldemarsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nonimmunodominance; vaccine; camouflaging; Streptococcus agalactiae; leucine-rich repeat; Streptococcus pyogenes; alpha; fibrinogen; M protein; surface proteins; Rib;

    Abstract : Streptococcus agalactiae and Streptococcus pyogenes are two related human pathogens causing different diseases. This thesis focuses on a number of surface proteins expressed by S. agalactiae and S. pyogenes and, more specifically, the molecular and biological characterization of these proteins. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Grupp B streptokocker (GBS; Streptococcus agalactiae) är den vanligaste orsaken till livs-hotande infektioner hos nyfödda barn. Enbart i USA orsakar GBS ~10 000 fall av meningit (hjärnhinneinflammation), pneumoni (lunginflammation) och sepsis (blodförgiftning) varje år. READ MORE

  3. 3. The impact of Staphylococcus aureus surface proteins on virulence

    University dissertation from Divison of Medical Microbiology

    Author : Niklas Palmqvist; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Staphylococcus aureus; septic arthritis; sepsis; virulence; cell wall-anchored proteins; surface proteins; fibrinogen.;

    Abstract : Staphylococcus aureus is an important pathogen in humans with the potential to cause life-threatening invasive infections, including sepsis and septic arthritis. The pathogenicity of S. aureus depends on the expression of a variety of virulence factors. READ MORE

  4. 4. Surface Modification of Biomedical Polyurethanes

    University dissertation from Center for Chemistry and Chemical Engineering

    Author : Christina Freij-Larsson; [1996]

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Ser man bakåt i historien har människan alltid försökt reparera eller ersätta vävnader i kroppen vid skador. En av de äldsta rapporterna om användande av biomaterial är runt 4000 år gammalt. I detta fall användes linnefibrer som suturmaterial. READ MORE

  5. 5. Surface proteins of Finegoldia magna interacting with the human host

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Christofer Karlsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Finegoldia magna; Gram-positive anaerobic cocci; surface proteins; protease; LL-37; MIG CXCL9; Fibrinogen; adhesion; gene disruption; bacterial aggregation; basement membranes;

    Abstract : Finegoldia magna is a Gram-positive anaerobe and a member of the normal human microflora. This bacterium is also an opportunistic pathogen and isolated from ~10% of all anaerobic infections. Reoccurring taxonomical changes and the anaerobic growth have contributed to the neglect of F. magna. READ MORE
