  1. 1. Role of Genital Infections on pregnancy outcome with emphasis on syphilis

    Author : Elena Maria Pereira Folgosa; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HIV; chorioamnionitis; syphilis; Mozambique; stillbirth; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : OBJECTIVES: To elucidate the role of genital infections in last trimester pre-labour foetal death and the role and aetiology of chorioamnionitis in stillbirth in Maputo, Mozambique. To determine the role of current syphilis as a risk factor for foetal death in Maputo and the prevalence and risk factors for syphilis and HIV infection in displaced pregnant women in rural Zambezia province.

  2. 2. Studies on mRNA turnover in bacteria

    Author : Martin Persson; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Microbiology; aprE; GlpP; glpD; mRNA secondary structure; Bacillus subtilis; mRNA stability; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Genetic information, which is stored in DNA, is transferred to messenger RNA (mRNA) in a process called transcription. mRNAs are then translated by ribosomes into proteins which, with some important exceptions, catalyze chemical reactions in cells. Since cells must be able to adapt to changes in the environment, mRNAs must be unstable. READ MORE

  3. 3. Antibiotics in patients on chemotherapy; aspects on pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic interactions with antineoplastic drugs

    Author : Anna Nyhlén; Sektion III; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; antibiotics; neutropenic; antineoplastic agents; pharmacokinetics; pharmacodynamics; PAE; interactions; synergy; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; mykologi; virologi;

    Abstract : The aims of these studies were to investigate the pharmacokinetics of two beta-lactam antibiotics in patients with fever and cytostatic-induced neutropenia and the influence of cytostatic-induced gastrointestinal damage on the absorption of co-trimoxazole. Furthermore to study the pharmacodynamic interactions between antibiotics and antineoplastic drugs and the impact of antineoplastic drugs on the intestinal microflora. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies on Thiol-Disulfide Oxidoreductases in Bacillus subtilis

    Author : Mirja Carlsson Möller; Molekylär cellbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi; Microbiology; bacteriology; bacterial sporulation; endospore; thioredoxin; Thiol-disulfide oxidoreductase;

    Abstract : Bacillus subtilis is a model organism for endospore-forming gram-positive bacteria. Endospores are formed in response to nutrient starvation. They can resist harsh environments and last for long periods of time. Once nutrients again become available, the endospore can germinate and the vegetative life cycle be resumed. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the cytotoxic and proinflammatory properties of eosinophils

    Author : Terese Dajotoy; Malmö Klinisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi; bacteriology; Microbiology; CXC chemokines; inflammation; eosinophils; cytotoxic mechanisms;

    Abstract : Eosinophils are multi-functional leukocytes involved in the pathophysiology of inflammatory diseases such as asthma and inflammatory bowel disease. Participation in some neoplastic diseases and in the host defense against helminths has also been postulated. They are considered both good and bad, protecting or harming the host. READ MORE
