Effect of conventional irrigation and photoactivated disinfection on Enterococcus faecalis in root canals: An in vitro study

Conclusions: NaOCl alone was not effective in eliminatingE. faecalis completely from the root canals. PAD compared to conventional irrigation showed the best results in removingE. faecalis from root canals.Balakrishna N, Moogi P, Kumar G V, Prashanth B R, Shetty NK, Rao KR.

Mangannavar, Iranna S. Muchchandi, Kalagouda B. Gudasi A hydrazone ligand has been synthesized by the condensation of 2-nitrobenzaldehyde and hydralazine, and its Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes have been reported. Structural characterization of the ligand and its metal complexes has been performed by various spectroscopic [IR, NMR, UV–Vis, Mass], thermal and other physicochemical methods. The structure of the ligand and its Ni(I...

Abstract AimTo evaluate the intratubular antimicrobial activity of several oxidant and chelating agents associated with or without surfactants in experimentally infected root canals, using confocal laser scanning microscopy. MethodologyTwenty‐four dentine blocks from bovine incisors were contaminated for 5 days with Enterococcus faecalis (ATCC‐ 29212). Ten contaminated dentine specimens were irrigated for 5 min with 5.25% NaOCl followed by 17% EDTA for 2 min, and the other 10 with Hypoclean for 5 min followed by Tetraclean NA for 2 min. The remaining four specimens were used as positive and neg...

Abstract A comparison of the abilities of rotary versus reciprocating files to eliminate viable Enterococcus faecalis populations from the long oval root canals of extracted human teeth. Fifty teeth were contaminated and randomly distributed into two groups (n = 25 each): BT‐RaCe group and WaveOne group. Two microbial samples were obtained from each tooth before (S1) and after (S2) instrumentation. The CFUs from the S1 and S2 measurements were calculated and compared between the groups. Both groups showed significantly fewer CFUs in the S2 samples (P

Abstract Chemical debridement during Regenerative Endodontic procedures is important. Previous research studies have evaluated various antibiotics and their concentrations but none have addressed the concern of delivering these materials. Hence, the purpose of this study was to determine what carrier could be used effectively in a clinical setting. Sixty caries‐free maxillary incisors were used and inoculated with Enterococcus faecalis and divided into positive and irrigation controls and experimental groups that had triple antibiotic powder (1:1:1 ciprofloxacin:metronidazole:minocycline) delivered using various carriers...

Authors: Rishi E, Rishi P, Bhende P, Raman R, Sen P, Susvar P, Rao C, Therese L, Hirawat R Abstract PURPOSE: To report Enterococcus faecalis endophthalmitis (EFE) in children and its comparison with adults. METHODS: Retrospective study of 19 children up to 18 years age, undergoing vitrectomy for EFE at a referral eye center from January 1995 to December 2015. The results were compared to 18 adults with EFE. RESULTS: The mean age was 7.4 ± 3.06 years. Post-traumatic EFE was seen in 17 (89.4%) children (p

Oh In the present study, we screened for potential probiotics from 34 lactic acid bacteria (LAB) isolated from the Korean fermented soybean paste. The LAB were tested for their survival abilities in the simulated gastrointestinal conditions. Seven lactic acid bacteria namely Pediococcus acidilactici SDL 1402, Pediococcus acidilactici SDL 1405, Pediococcus acidilactici SDL 1406, Weissella cibaria SCCB 2306, Streptococcus thermophilus SCML 337, Streptococcus thermophilus SCML 300 and Ente...

This study was aimed at estimating the prevalence and trends of antimicrobial resistance from bacterial isolates from equine clinical samples submitted for culture and susceptibility testing to the veterinary bacteriology laboratory of the University of Pretoria. The study covered a period of seven years from 2007. A total of 1505 bacterial isolates were included in this study comprising isolates from 2007 (n=447); 2008 (n=285); 2009 (n=258); 2010 (n=102); 2011 (n=89); 2012 (n=248) and 2013 (n=76). For this study, multiple drug resistance was above 50% for all the isolates. The Cochran-Armitage test showed evidence of a si...

Bennett A validation study was conducted in smaller (<100 acute beds) Victorian hospitals to evaluate case-detection for Staphylococcus aureus bloodstream (SAB), methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) infections. Overall, 142 infections were identified in 20 hospitals. For routine surveillance of SAB events sensitivity was 74.4% and specificity was 100.0%. For MRSA infections, sensitivity was 47.5% and spe...
