AbstractATrichoderma orientale strain LSBA1 was isolated from the Mediterranean marine spongeCymbaxinella damicornis. The crude extract ofT. orientale mycelium showed inhibitory activity against growth of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria as well as clinical isolates ofCandida albicans. Purification of the anti-Candida component was performed using a combination of open silica gel-60 column and reverse phase high performance liquid chromatography. The active compound called hyporientalin A has been identified as a peptaibol analogue of longibrachin-A-II using mass spectrometry. It exhibited fungicidal activity again...

Authors: Galluzzo M, D'Adamio S, Campione E, Bianchi L, Talamonti M Abstract INTRODUCTION: Guselkumab is a fully human monoclonal IgG1λ antibody for the treatment of plaque psoriasis that inhibits interleukin (IL)-23p19 subunit, reducing the proliferation of type 17 helper T (Th-17) cells and thus production of Th-17-derived pro-inflammatory cytokines, especially IL-17 and IL-22. Areas covered: In the following article, the mechanism of action and mainly the efficacy and safety profile of guselkumab available from results of trials will be discussed. We summarized these data after a literature review includi...

So far, hydrolysis reactions accounted for almost the totality of studies, since the glycolysis route was only recently reported. In the present work, a comparative analysis of hydrolysis and glycolysis of PET oligomers catalyzed by H...

In this study, the broad killing activity of B. cenocepacia TAtl-371, a Bcc strain isolated from the tomato rhizosphere, was characterized. This strain exhibits a remarkable antagonism against bacteria, yeast and fungi including other Bcc strains, multidrug-resistant human pathogens and plant pathogens. Genome analysis of strain TAtl-371 revealed several genes involved in the production of antagonistic compounds: siderophores, bacteriocins and hydrolytic enzymes. In pursuit of these activities, we observed growth inhibition of Candida glabrata and Paraburkholderia phenazinium that was dependent on the iron concentration in...

AbstractPurposePeritonitis is a major complication of bariatric surgery due to direct damage to the natural barriers to infection. Most such secondary peritoneal infections are caused by Gram-negative microorganisms; however, under certain conditions,Candida species can infect the peritoneal cavity following bariatric surgery.Materials and MethodsWe retrospectively analyzed the clinical and microbiological data of morbidly obese patients who suffered infectious complications following laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) at the Soroka Medical Center between January 2010 and June 2015.ResultsOut of 800 patients who underwe...

In this study, we used the fungus Aspergillus orayzae for the fermentation process. The aqueous extract of fermented Lupin (AEFL) possesses the ability to reduce selenium ion in the presence of gamma rays evidenced by the color changes to red. Elemental composition, surface morphology, size determenation, and identity of selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs) were verified by UV–Vis., TEM, DLS, XRD, EDX, SEM and FT-IR. Antimicrobial activity of SeNPs was tested towards multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria, and some pathogenic fungi. TEM with DLS analysis confirmed the formation of sphere isotropic, poly-dispersed SeNPs with av...

CONCLUSIONS Silver-impregnated ELD catheters, which could potentially reduce the number of CSF infections, show significantly better properties in regard to handling and fewer device-related complications. Whether they are superior to antibiotic-impregnated catheters or a clinical regimen involving antibiotic prophylaxis remains to be proven. Clinical trial registration no.: DRKS00013513 (Deutsches Register Klinischer Studien). PMID: 29905509 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
