  2. 2. Selection for Antibiotic Resistance Below Minimal inhibitory concentration in Biofilm

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Elin Fermér; [2020]
    Keywords : antibiotic resistance; biofilm; antibiotics;

    Abstract : Antibiotics are today one of the most important cornerstones in modern healthcare when it comes to treating bacterial infections. It is an asset human kind have been leaning on for the last century, but excessive and widespread misuse of antibiotics have left deep scars in the form of multi resistant pathogenic strains of bacteria that we soon will not be able to treat.

    Author : Andreas Eriksson; [2019]
    Keywords : Medical; Ti-Cu alloys; Ti-Cu legeringar; medicin; medicinteknik; materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Bacterial infections caused by the formation of a biofilm on the implant aftersurgery is a severe problem affecting the implants long term function and often leading to implant failure. Copper is a natural trace element found in the human body, and has recently become a possible alloying element with strongantibacterial properties. READ MORE

  4. 4. Isolation and genomic characterization of three PHA degrading bacteria from the marine environment

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Bioteknik (master); Lunds universitet/Bioteknik (CI)

    Author : Giulia Elli; [2019]
    Keywords : PHA; degradation of PHA; marine bacteria; sulphate reducing bacteria; SRB; SRM; biotechnology; bioteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The broader goal of this project was to investigate what kind of effects the accumulation of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) in the marine environment might have on the microbial world. Bacteria were isolated from biofilms fouling PHA pellets placed in the sediment-water interface; the goal was to isolate PHA degraders that were also sulphate reducers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Campylobacter survival under stress conditions encountered between poultry farm and the human intestine

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för medicinsk biokemi och mikrobiologi

    Author : Alfalah Yazan; [2018]
    Keywords : Campylobacter; Micro-aerobic; Survival; Dehydration; Poultry; Zoonosis; Inactivation; Biofilms.;

    Abstract : Campylobacter are probably the most important bacterial pathogen related to food-borne illnesses; specifically, gastroenteritis and diarrheal diseases. These bacteria can be isolated from various environments, but always originate from the intestine of warm blooded animals. READ MORE
