Surveillance of invasive Neisseria meningitidis with a serogroup Y update, Sweden 2010 to 2012.
 

Author(s): B Törös, S Thulin Hedberg, S Jacobsson, H Fredlund, P Olcén, P Mölling

Journal:

 

An increase of invasive meningococcal disease caused by Neisseria meningitidis serogroup Y has been noted in Sweden since 2005, and to a lower extent throughout Europe. The present study describes the epidemiology of invasive N. meningitidis isolates in Sweden in the period between ...

Metabolism and virulence in Neisseria meningitidis.
 

Author(s): Christoph Schoen, Laura Kischkies, Johannes Elias, Biju Joseph Ampattu

Journal:

 

A longstanding question in infection biology addresses the genetic basis for invasive behavior in commensal pathogens. A prime example for such a pathogen is Neisseria meningitidis. On the one hand it is a harmless commensal bacterium exquisitely adapted to humans, and on the other ...
