Factors Associated with Abnormal Imaging and Infection Recurrence after a First Febrile Urinary Tract Infection in Children

Conclusion All children younger than 3 years with first febrile UTI should undergo ultrasonography. Thereafter, patients with no predictive factors for vesicoureteral reflux may be followed up without further imaging. A non–E. coli infection is associated with reflux and infection recurrence.[...]Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New YorkArticle in Thieme eJournals:Table of contents  |  Abstract  |  Full text

CONCLUSION: Although the number of cases is small, the clinical and microbiological outcomes showed that most were successfully treated with non-carbapenem antibiotics, with low recurrence of new episodes of urinary tract infections. PMID: 31962058 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Introduction: Gram-negative bacteria are the major cause of urinary tract infections (UTI) in children. There is limited data on UTI systemic response as measured using C-reactive protein (CRP). Here, we report the association of CRP and UTI among children attending the Bugando Medical Centre, Mwanza, Tanzania.Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted between May and July 2017. Urine and blood were collected and processed within an hour of collection. Data were analyzed using STATA version 13.Results: Of 250 enrolled children, 76(30.4%) had significant bacteriuria with 56(22.4%, 95%CI; 11.5-33.3) having gram-negative ...

Planta Med DOI: 10.1055/a-1089-8645Extracts from Ononis spinosa are traditionally used for urinary tract infections due to diuretic and anti-inflammatory activity. A potential influence on the virulence of uropathogenic Escherichia coli has not been investigated until now. The following study aimed to investigate the influence of an aqueous O. spinosa extract on uropathogenic E. coli and uropathogenic E. coli host cell interaction. A hot water extract from the roots of O. spinosa (O. spinosa extract) was characterized by LC-qTOF-MS. The influence of O. spinosa extract on the proliferation of uropathogenic E. coli UTI8...

ConclusionsThe therapeutic effects of SVCP on treating UTIs might result from the up-regulation of innate immunity in the kidney. SVCP can be used as an alternative therapeutic agent for UTIs.Graphical abstract

In this study, we aimed to identify the beta-lactam resistance phenotypes and genotypes of multidrug-resistant (MDR) non-repetitive GNP from 3 tertiary hospitals in Egypt. WZe studied 495 non-repetitive MDR Gram-negative isolates from patients with complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAI), complicated urinary tract infection (cUTI), and lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI), collected as part of the “Study for Monitoring Antimicrobial Resistance Trends” (SMART) conducted in 3 tertiary hospitals in Cairo, Egypt, from 2015 to 2016. Identification and susceptibility testing of GNP to antimicrobials were te...

Conclusions: No significant difference in treatment outcomes was found between pediatric patients receiving AT and IAT for the treatment of UTI. In the era of increasing antimicrobial resistance, third-generation cephalosporins may still be a good choice as an empirical antimicrobial for children diagnosed with community-onset UTI.

Abstract Uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) as the most important bacterial agent of urinary tract infections (UTIs) encompasses a wide treasure of virulence genes and factors. In due to this default, the aim of this research was to detect and identify some important virulence genes including cnf1, upaH, hlyA, ibeA, and cdtB in isolated UPEC pathotypes. In this research, clinical samples of urine were collected in Shahr-e-Qods, Tehran, Iran. The UPEC pathotypes were confirmed by standard biochemical tests. The DNAs of isolated bacteria were extracted. The genes of cnf1, upaH, hlyA, ibeA, and cdtB were run for m...

Abstract OBJECTIVES: Urinary tract infection (UTI) following radical cystectomy (RC) is a common complication associated with significant morbidity and risk of readmission. Recent literature has assessed the effect of perioperative antibiotic regimens on the rate of postoperative infections but not yet yielded with significant changes in UTI rates. Our study focused on the effect of postoperative suppressive regimens on the rate of UTI following radical cystectomy with Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocol. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 427 patients who underwent RC with ERAS protocol between...

In this study, we evaluated the activity of 140 essential oils against stationary phase uropathogenic E. coli UTI89 and identified 39 essential oils at 0.5% concentration, 8 essential oils at 0.25% concentration, and 3 essential oils at 0.125% concentration to have high activity against stationary phase E. coli. Among the top eight essential oils, Oregano showed higher activity than the known persister drug tosufloxacin. The other top four hits including Allspice, Bandit thieves, Cinnamon bark, and Syzygium aromaticum could eradicate stationary phase E. coli at a low concentration of 0.25% after three- or five-day exposure...
