Staphylococcus aureus arthritis is usually caused by bacteremia and is highly destructive. Controlled studies on septic arthritis in humans are difficult to perform, because the time of onset of the infection is unknown. Animal models of bacterial arthritis make it possible to control important variables in experimental studies. We present a mouse model of(More)
Bone sialoprotein is selectively bound by Staphylococcus aureus cells isolated from patients suffering from infections of bone tissue [Rydén, C., Maxe, I., Franzén, A., Ljungh, A., Heinegård, D. & Rubin, K. (1987) Lancet II, 514]. In the present communication the binding of bone sialoprotein to staphylococcal cells is characterized in more detail.(More)
Bone sialoprotein (BSP) is selectively bound by Staphylococcus aureus cells isolated from patients suffering from infections of bone and joint tissues [Rydén C., Maxe, I., Franzén, A., Ljungh, A., Heinegård, D. & Rubin, K. (1987) Lancet II, 515]. We now report on the purification of a cell-wall protein from Staphylococcus aureus, strain O24, that possesses(More)
BACKGROUND The porcine virus denominated La Piedad Michoacan Virus (LPMV) is a member of the family Paramyxoviridae and is the cause of a disease in pigs present only in Mexico. The disease is characterized by meningoencephalitis and respiratory distress in young pigs, epididymitis and orchitis in boars, and reproductive failure and abortion in sows. (More)
Two high molecular weight staphylococcal proteins, fibronectin-binding protein and a Mr 200,000 protein, were investigated as antigens for serodiagnosis of staphylococcal infections. Sera from patients with staphylococcal infections and from controls were subjected to immunoblot analysis with staphylococcal lysate proteins to identify staphylococcal(More)
