Infections and inflammation in urology

The group’s research activity mainly focuses on inflammation and infections in the urinary tracts, and for better and more accurate treatment that prevents antibiotic resistance.

The Groups Research Profile

  • Asymptomatic bacteriuria
  • Antimicrobial resistance, mathematical modelling of development of resistance
  • Antibiotic stewardship
  • Infection prophylaxis
  • Infectious  complications in urology
  • Classification of urinary tract infections
  • Microbiome in urine
  • Phage therapy in prophylaxis and treatment
  • Tuberculosis in the urinary tract
  • Urosepsis

Long Term Goals

The Group's goal is to record the incidence of urinary tract infections, types of microorganisms, antibiotic resistance and risk factors in order to improve the use of antibiotics and non-antibiotic preparations (antibiotic stewardship).

The recording will contribute to both the prevention and treatment of the individual patient and predict the development of antibiotic resistance in an international perspective. Thereby reducing the morbidity associated with urinary tract infections.


The group's members are involved in the following Projects:

  1. Global Prevalence Study of Infections in Urology (GPIU annual)
  2. Global Prevalence Study of Infections after Prostate biopsy (GPIU biopsy)
  3. Global Prevalence Study of Infections in community (GPIU com)
  4. Longitudinal Study on Urosepsis (Serpens)
  5. EU COST project on urinary stents
  6. Scientific Network to Tackle Antimicrobial Resistance In Infections (SENTRII Application 2019)


The group is collaborating with the European Section of Infections in Urology / European Association of Urology. The GPIU studies are conducted in more than one hundred countries, and the SENTRII project is supported by researchers in more than 30 countries.
