Ludwig's angina by Salmonella Typhi: A clinical dilemma

RK Mahajan, S Sharma, P Madan, N SharmaIndian Journal of Medical Microbiology 2015 33(2):300-302Salmonella Typhi has rarely been associated with focal abscesses; and in literature, there is no evidence of its association with abscesses in the neck spaces. Ability of Salmonella Typhi to invade and localise in the neck spaces not only poses a diagnostic challenge but also underscores the necessity to understand the mechanisms that facilitate Salmonella Typhi to establish infections at sites completely non-traditional to the organism.

ConclusionsWe found that EFVF is safe with regard to acute toxicity in rats as well as genotoxicity such as mutagenesis or clastogenesis under the present experimental conditions. These results might support the safety of EFVF as a potential therapeutic material for the traditional use or pharmaceutical development.Graphical abstract

Publication date: Available online 14 November 2019Source: Food ChemistryAuthor(s): Selina Brighina, Cristina Restuccia, Elena Arena, Rosa Palmeri, Biagio FallicoAbstractThe antibacterial activities of the dicarbonyl compounds glyoxal (GO), methylglyoxal (MGO), 3-deoxyglucosone (3-DG) were assessed against Gram-positive and Gram-negative pathogenic and food spoilage bacteria, both in agarised and liquid assay system. The kinetics of dicarbonyls’ degradation at different antimicrobial assay conditions were studied, to determine the possible interference of the nutrient medium.In agarised assay system, GO and MGO exhib...

Publication date: Available online 14 November 2019Source: Preventive Veterinary MedicineAuthor(s): A. Firouzabadi, D. Saadati, M. Najimi, M. JajarmiAbstractSalmonella is one of the most important pathogens in the poultry industry that not only causes financial and economic damage, but also, some serovars of this bacterium, including the S. Typhimurium, can infect humans through poultry-to-human transmission. The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of this pathogen among broiler poultry houses in the Kerman region, southeast of Iran and to identify factors which could increase the risk for Salmonella co...

The objectives of this study were to determine the protective effects of organic acids (OA) in broilers exposed to Salmonella Pullorum challenge at early stage and to explore the potential benefits of OA by metabolomics analysis. The treatment groups included non-challenged, S. Pullorum-challenged, challenged group supplemented with virginiamycin, challenged group supplemented with OA in drinking water, challenged group supplemented with OA in feed, and challenged group supplemented with OA in combination in drinking water and feed. Results showed that early Salmonella challenge induced an acute systemic infection of broil...

LT2Salmonella Typhimurium is one of the major foodborne pathogens due to its biofilm formation on food contact surfaces. A polymer of positively charged lysine, ε-Polylysine has been demonstrated to inhibit biofilm formation of both Gram-positive and -negative bacteria. To elucidate the mechanism for inhibition of biofilm formation by ε-P...

In this study, we investigated the feasibility of releasing this peptide into the tumor microenvironment using live attenuated Salmonella enterica, which has proven to be an ally in cancer therapy due to its high affinity for tumor tissue, its ability to activate the innate and adaptive antitumor immune responses, and its potential use as a delivery system of heterologous molecules. Thus, we expressed and released the cell-permeable Bax BH3 peptide from the surface of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium SL3261 through the MisL autotransporter system. We demonstrated that this recombinant bacterium significantly decreas...
