We hypothesize that the increase in protease expression would likely result in a decrease in virulence factors important for osteomyelitis. In this dissertation, we found that mutation of sarA significantly attenuated virulence in a model of post-traumatic osteomyelitis owing to protease mediated degradation of important virulence factors.
I, Kim Harman, confirm that this dissertation and the work presented in it are my own achievement. 1. Where I have consulted the published work of others this is clearly attributed. 2. Where I have quoted from the work of others the source is always given. With the exception of such quotations this dissertation is entirely my own work. 3.

Osteomyelitis is an infective process that encompasses all of the bone (osseous) components, including the bone marrow. When it is chronic, it can lead to bone sclerosis and deformity. Chronic osteomyelitis may be due to the presence of intracellular bacteria (inside bone cells).
This dissertation is based largely on an original study performed by myself and Dr EB Hoffman on 34 neonates with bone and joint sepsis. Our experience of 19 septic hips is the largest in the literature. The study was performed at the Red Cross Children's Hospital in 1987 and 1988.
Osteomyelitis (Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Treatment) Definition: Osteomyelitis (OM), also called a bone infection, is an infection in a bone. It can happen if a bacterial or fungal infection enters the bone tissue from the bloodstream, due to injury or surgery.

Osteomyelitis, or infection of the bone (), is a continuing issue facing clinicians, causing thousands of hospital admissions each year in the United States.Bone is relatively resistant to infection. However, osteomyelitis can occur if there is a large-organism inoculation, trauma with resulting bone damage occurs, foreign bodies (such as prosthetic implants) are present, or a particularly.
