After infection with Borrelia burgdorferi, humans and mice under certain conditions develop arthritis. Initiation of inflammation is dependent on the migration of innate immune cells to the site of infection, controlled by interactions of a variety of adhesion molecules. In this study, we used the newly synthesized compound S18407, which is a prodrug of the(More)
BACKGROUND Staphylococcus aureus is a common pathogen among humans worldwide, with an increasing prevalence of multidrug resistance. The understanding of virulence factors inducing pathogenicity is still incomplete, and thus far the transfer of results from animal studies into successful clinical trials has been difficult. METHODS In this study, we(More)
BACKGROUND Next-generation 16S ribosomal RNA gene sequencing is widely used to determine the relative composition of the mammalian gut microbiomes. However, in the absence of a reference, this does not reveal alterations in absolute abundance of specific operational taxonomic units if microbial loads vary across specimens. RESULTS Here we suggest the(More)
