  1. 1. Multidrug-Resistant Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae : Treatment, Selection and International Spread

    Author : Thomas Tängdén; Otto Cars; Anders Johansson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Escherichia coli; Klebsiella pneumoniae; extended-spectrum beta-lactamases; carbapenemases; metallo-beta-lactamases; synergy; antibiotic interventions;

    Abstract : The prevalence of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae producing extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) and carbapenemases is increasing worldwide. Therapeutic options for infections with these bacteria are limited not only by the production of ESBLs and carbapenemases, which confer resistance to cephalosporins and carbapenems, but also by frequent co-resistance to other antibiotics.

  2. 2. Bacterial viruses targeting multi-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli

    Author : Harald Eriksson; Anders Nilsson; Elisabeth Haggård-Ljungquist; Klas Flärdh; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bacterial viruses; Bacteriophage; Phage; Phage therapy; multi-resistant bacteria; Klebsiella pneumoniae; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : The global increase in antibiotic resistance levels in bacteria is a growing concern to our society and highlights the need for alternative strategies to combat bacterial infections. Bacterial viruses (phages) are the natural predators of bacteria and are as diverse as their hosts, but our understanding of them is limited. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evolution of beta-lactam : Resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae

    Author : Sara Hæggman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : K. pneumoniae is recognized as a common opportunistic pathogen. Numerous reports have been published worldwide on outbreaks in different healthcare settings. K. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterisation of Food Associated Bacteria by DNA based Methods, with Special Reference to Enterobacteriaceae

    Author : Crister Olsson; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Food and drink technology; 16S rRNA; TTGE; ribotyping; Rahnella; Klebsiella; HPI; Enterobacteriaceae; food; Livsmedelsteknik;

    Abstract : The presence of genes in food, encoding some virulence factors, was studied by PCR, and species of Enterobacteriaceae, associated with food, were studied by the DNA-based methods of TTGE, ribotyping and sequencing. The flora of fresh and chill-stored pork were analysed by a culture-independent approach, using specific amplification of 16S rRNA genes followed by cloning and sequencing. READ MORE

  5. 5. Antibiotic resistance in Gram-negative bacilli : With focus on cephalosporin resistance mechanisms in Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae

    Author : Owe Källman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Objectives. The objectives of this thesis were to study mechanisms conferring cefuroxime resistance in clinical non-ESBL (extended-spectrum beta-lactamase) producing isolates of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae, as well as the presence of co-resistance to other antibiotics in the K. pneumoniae isolates.
