Linking Pathogen Virulence, Host Immunity and The Microbiota at the Intestinal Barrier.

Linking Pathogen Virulence, Host Immunity and The Microbiota at the Intestinal Barrier. Keio J Med. 2017;66(1):14 Authors: Nunez G Abstract The mechanisms that allow enteric pathogens to colonize the intestine and host immunity as well as the indigenous microbiota to inhibit pathogen colonization remain poorly understood. Our laboratory is using Citrobacter rodentium, a mouse pathogen that models human infections by enteropathogenic E. coli, to understand the mechanisms that regulate the colonization and clearance of the pathogen in the gut. These studies have revealed how the pathogen colonizes and replicates successfully early during infection and how host immunity and the indigenous microbiota cooperate to eradicate the pathogen in the later stage of the infection. The impairment of the immune system to control the barrier function of the intestine leads to pathogen invasion and the induction of a second layer of host protective immunity to limit the systemic spread of the pathogen.(Presented at the 1931st Meeting, January 17, 2017).

​Emergency providers expeditiously sift and sort patients on their shifts and streamline procedures like how to place an ear wick in a patient with otitis externa, a quick and useful procedure for a patient who will reap the rewards.Standard ear wicks. The material is made from a dehydrated sponge composed of hydroxylated poly(vinyl acetate). It increases in size when liquid is applied. Photo by M. Roberts.Otitis externa can cause significant swelling, irritation, pruritis, and pain to the ear canal. Occasionally, the canal is so swollen it may be difficult to administer ear drops. An ear wick can be inserted between the...

In conclusion, we found differentially abundant microbes implicated with age and gender that are also associated with genomic alterations and immune dysregulations. Further investigation should be conducted to determine the relationship between gender and age-associated microbes and the pathogenesis of lung cancer.

med Ragab A series of Bis-pyrazole Schiff bases (6a–d and 7a–d) and mono-pyrazole Schiff bases (8a–d and 9a–d) were designed and synthesized through the reaction of 5-aminopyrazoles 1a–d with aldehydes 2–5 using mild reaction condition with a good yield percentage. The chemical structure of newly formed Schiff bases tethered pyrazole core was confirmed based on spectral and experimental data. All the newly formed pyrazole Schiff bases were evaluated against eight pathogens (Gram-positive, Gram-negative, and fungi). The result exhibited that, most of them have ...

Microbiota, host and dietary metabolites/signals compose the rich gut chemical environment, which profoundly impacts virulence of enteric pathogens. Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) engages a syringe-like machinery named type-III secretion system (T3SS) to inject effectors within host cells that lead to intestinal colonization and disease. We previously conducted a high-throughput screen...
