  1. 1. Molecular determinants of disease severity in urinary tract infection

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Ines Ambite; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Asymptomatic bacteriuria; urinary tract infection; acute pyelonephritis; cystitis; Escherichia coli 83972; host response; NlpD; RNA Polymerase II; transcription regulation; inflammasome; Il-1β; ASC; NLRP-3; hyper-inflammatory disorder; MMP-7; IL-1RA; genetic susceptibility; IRF-7; siRNA therapy; P fimbriae; type 1 fimbriae;

    Abstract : In the urinary tract, Escherichia coli infection may result in life-threatening disease, or asymptomatic bacterial carriage, comparable to bacterial commensalism in the gut. Pathogenic strains trigger a disease provoking host response which differs depending on the infected organ. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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

    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

  3. 3. Host-parasite interaction in men with febrile urinary tract infection

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

    Author : Peter Ulleryd; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; urinary tract infection; fever; male; Escherichia coli; serotype; virulence; PSA; prostate; prostatitis; TRUS; urography; cystoscopy; treatment; ciprofloxacin;

    Abstract : In a retrospective study, Escherichia coli isolates from 88 men with symptomatic urinary tract infection (UTI) were analysed. A wide array of O:K:H serotypes commonly associated with acute pyelonephritis in women were identified. READ MORE

  4. 4. Infants with urinary tract infection - renal damage and risk factors

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

    Author : Iulian Preda; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; infants; renal damage; urinary tract infection; imaging;

    Abstract : Background Identification of infants with urinary tract infection (UTI) who are at risk of renal scarring is an important clinical challenge with considerable economic consequences. Few issues in pediatric practice today have been so debated as the appropriate investigation of an infant with UTI. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cytokines and Neutrophils in the Urinary Tract Mucosa

    University dissertation from Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Glycobiology, Lund University

    Author : Long Hang; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; neutrophils; chemokines; urinary tract infection; mucosa; epithelial cells; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi;

    Abstract : This study investigated the urinary tract cytokine reponse to infection and the role of chemokines for neutrophil recruitment to the urinary tract. The results suggest that 1) IL-8 and TGFb are consitutively produced by uroepithelial cells in vivo, and that uroepithelial cells are stimulated to produce IL-1b and IL-6 by uropathogenic Escherichia coli.
