  1. 1. Inducible nitric oxide synthase in experimental urinary tract infection

    University dissertation from Mirjana Poljakovic, Dept of Clinical Pharmacology, Lund University Hospital, S-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Mirjana Poljakovic; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Urology; host defense; cell viability; nitrate; lipopolysaccaride; cytokines; sphingomyelinase; mitogen activator protein kinase; nitric oxide; nitrotyrosine; E. coli; cyclooxygenase; urinary tract infection; prostaglandins; urothelium; bladder; kidney; NADPH diaphorase histochemistry; nitric oxide synthase; vävnadskultur; histokemi; cytokemi; Histologi; tissue culture; histochemistry; cytochemistry; Histology; nefrologi; Urologi; nephrology; Infections; Infektioner;

    Abstract : Urinary tract infection (UTI) is among the most common bacterial infections in humans and the majority are caused by Escherichia coli (E. coli). Abundant evidence indicates that nitric oxide (NO) produced by the inducible NO synthase (iNOS) plays an important role in host defense against infection. READ MORE

  2. 2. Molecular analysis of transcription factors in uropathogenic E. coli adhesin operons

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Stina Lindberg; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; UPEC; E. coli; F1C; P fimbriae; cross-talk; FocB; PapB; crystal structure; OMVs; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Microbiology Medical microbiology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Mikrobiologi Medicinsk mikrobiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : The main causative agent of human urinary tract infections is the uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) pathotype. It may cause disease due to its ability to express a number of bacterial virulence factors. Fimbrial adhesins are particularly important for the initial establishment of infection in the urinary tract. READ MORE

  3. 3. Carbon monoxide and nitric oxide as antimicrobial agents : focus on ESBL-producing uropathogenic E.coli

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Author : Charlotte Sahlberg Bang; Örebro universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; biofilm; carbon monoxide; CORM-2; DETA NO; extendedspectrum beta-lactamases; nitric oxide; urinary tract infection; uropathogenic Escherichia coli; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : Urinary tract infections (UTI) are common in humans and most often caused by uropathogenic Escherichia coli (E. coli). Extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing E. coli are increasing worldwide and they are frequently multidrug-resistant with limited treatment options. READ MORE

  4. 4. Epidemiology of ESBL-producing E. coli with special reference to outbreak detection

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Lisa Helldal; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : E. coli; epidemiology; surveillance;

    Abstract : Multidrug resistant bacteria, particularly extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae (EPE), are becoming a major health concern. ESBL-producing Escherichia coli (ESBL-E. coli) is the most prevalent type. ESBL-genes are carried on plasmids, often by bacteria belonging to clones with properties that facilitate transmission.

  5. 5. Asymptomatic Bacteriuria in the Elderly

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Author : Nils Rodhe; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; family practice; aged 80 and over; E. coli; bacteriuria; urinary tract infections; urinary incontinence; leukocyte esterase; cytokines; MEDICINE Social medicine Public health medicine research areas Family medicine; MEDICIN Socialmedicin Folkhälsomedicinska forskningsområden Allmänmedicin;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to explore the features of asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) in elderly people living in the community, and to seek diagnostic tools to discriminate between ASB and symptomatic urinary tract infection (UTI). All men and women aged 80 and over living in an urban district of Falun, Sweden, were invited to participate. READ MORE
