Resistance to antibiotics
The polysaccharide-encapsulated bacteria Neisseria meningitidis, Haemophilus influenzae (Hi) and Streptococcus pneumoniae are leading causes of serious bacterial infections. Beta lactams are the first line antibiotics in the treatment. These bacteria share the same ecological […]
Emerging meningococci in the African meningitis belt
The emergence of Neisseria meningitidis serogroup X (NmX) in the African meningitis belt has urged understanding of this emergence as well as the development of diagnostic tools and vaccines for this serogroup, especially following […]
Global analysis of the pathogenesis of Neisseria meningitidis
Meningococcal components (pathogen associated molecular patterns, PAMPs) such as the LOS, peptidoglycan and membrane proteins are responsible for the induction of systemic inflammatory response. Recent and previous works from our group contributed in the […]
Analysis of host cells interaction with N. meningitidis
The molecular basis of the meningococcal pathogenesis is under active exploration by several groups in the world. Full genome sequencing failed to reveal specific determinants that could discriminate between transmissibility and non offending colonisation […]
