    Abstract : Tularemia is a zoonosis caused by the small, fastidious, gram-negative rod Francisella tularensis that appears over almost the entire Northern Hemisphere. In Sweden, tularemia has appeared mainly in restricted areas in northern parts of central Sweden. READ MORE

  2. 2. Towards the Limits – Climate Change Aspects of Life and Health in Northern Sweden : studies of tularemia and regional experiences of changes in the environment

    Abstract : BackgroundIndigenous peoples with traditional lifestyles worldwide are considered particularly vulnerable to climate change effects. Large climate change impacts on the spread of infectious vector-borne diseases are expected as a health outcome. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetic genealogy and epidemiology of Francisella

    Author : Kerstin Svensson; Anders Johansson; Mats Forsman; Sam R. Telford III; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Francisella tularensis; tularemia; genotyping; epidemiology; GIS; Infectious diseases; Infektionssjukdomar; Infectious Diseases; infektionssjukdomar;

    Abstract : This thesis is about analyzing genetic differences among isolates of Francisella tularensis – the tularemia-causing bacterium. To elucidate how these bacterial isolates are related, and their geographical and genetic origins, I have developed typing assays for Francisella and used them to study the epidemiology of tularemia.

    Abstract : Francisella tularensis is a gram-negative bacterium that is the cause of the serious and sometimes fatal disease, tularemia, in a wide range of animal species and in humans. The response of cells of the mouse macrophage cell line J774 to infection with Francisella tularensis LVS was analyzed by means of a DNA microarray. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cutaneous resistance against Francisella tularensis

    Author : Stephan Stenmark; Mikael Rhen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : tularemia; Francisella tularensis; skin; protection; cytokines; T-cells; B-cells; specific antibodies; Infectious Diseases; infektionssjukdomar;

    Abstract : Francisella tularensis, the causative agent of tularemia, is a potent pathogen in humans and other mammals. The ulceroglandular form of the disease is the most common expression in humans with a clinical picture characterized by a skin ulcer, enlarged regional lymph nodes and fever. READ MORE
