    Author : Jesper Nyman; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Urinary tract infections (UTI) are a common bacterial infection. Diagnosing UTI can be done through urine culturing. While precise, culturing is both time and money consuming. Flow cytometry analysis (FCA) is a different technique that can calculate different attributes in a urine sample. READ MORE

  4. 4. Health economic analysis of a urinary catheter which reduce the frequency of urinary tract infections (UTIs) Research questions: a) What is the willingness-to-pay (WTP) in Sweden - from a patient perspective - for a urinary catheter which reduce the annual frequency of urinary tract infections by 25% and 50%, respectively, and (b) is the WTP dependent on the annual frequency of UTIs and gender?

Methods: The preference for a clinically more effective catheter was expressed as a monetary value by investigating the patients’ willingness-to-pay (WTP) to switch catheters. READ MORE

  5. 5. Growth Dynamics, Antibiotic Susceptibility and the Effect of Sublethal Ciprofloxacin Concentrations in Susceptible and Resistant Escherichia coli in Biofilm

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Jenny Fernberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Biofilm; Escherichia coli; CFT073; BPC; MBIC; MSC; Ciprofloxacin; Streptomycin; Rifampicin; Antibiotic resistance; Urinary Tract Infections; Growth dynamics; Antibiotic susceptibility; S83F; K42N; S531L; Sub-MIC;

    Abstract : Instead of planktonic growth in nature, many species of bacteria form biofilm to survive in harsh conditions. Although many chronic bacterial infections are caused by bacterial species in a biofilm lifestyle, previous research has focused on studying antibiotic resistance in planktonic growth. Here we used a modified MBEC assay, i.e. READ MORE
