    Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Molecular and Clinical Medicine, Linkoping University, Linkoping, Sweden
    APMIS 112:109-18. 2004
    ..Our results may explain why S. epidermidis is a weak inducer of inflammation compared to S. aureus, and therefore responsible for the indolent and chronic course of S. epidermidis biomaterial infections...

    Eur J Clin Microbiol Infect Dis 26:255-65. 2007
    ..The presence of the intercellular adhesion (ica) operon does not seem to be a prerequisite for establishing infection with CoNS...

    Asa Nilsdotter-Augustinsson
    Division of Infectious Diseases, Linkoping University, Linkoping, Sweden
    Acta Orthop 78:629-39. 2007
    ..The most common complications of prosthetic hip joints are aseptic mechanical failure and infection. Delayed low-grade infections are seen most often, and they are also most difficult to distinguish from aseptic mechanical failures...

    Asa Nilsdotter-Augustinsson
    Divisions of Infectious Diseases, Department of Molecular and Clinical Medicine, Linkoping University, Linkoping, Sweden
    APMIS 113:361-73. 2005
    ..epidermidis induces only a weak inflammatory response, which in combination with the ability of the adherent bacteria to retard neutrophil apoptosis may contribute to low-grade inflammation and loosening of prostheses...

    FEMS Immunol Med Microbiol 53:126-35. 2008
    ..epidermidis might represent an important mechanism to combat the infective agent. This activation of macrophages may contribute to the development of chronic inflammation instead of inflammation resolution...
