Isolation and determination of four potential antimicrobial components from Pseudomonas aeruginosa extracts.

Conclusion:P. aeruginosa can produce small molecules with potential antimicrobial activities against MRSA, VISA, CS, MC, CA, CT, CG and CP but not against AB. PMID: 29200950 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: Cladosporium can cause endogenous endophthalmitis and mimic toxoplasma retinochoroiditis. Vitreous biopsy can help in diagnosis in the absence of positive blood culture. Intravitreal voriconazole along with systemic voriconazole shows a good response. PMID: 31825695 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study was designed to examine the prevalence of Candida albicans alcohol dehydrogenase 1 (CaADH1) gene in oral dysplasia as well as oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) with and without lymph node metastasis (LNM) using reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) in order to determine its role in initiation, propagation and metastasis of oral dysplasia and carcinoma. Formalin-fixed parafin-embedded specimens were grouped into four groups: 7 control, 16 oral dysplasia, 16 OSCC without LNM and 15 OSCC with LNM. All specimens were examined by periodic acid Schiff (PAS) stain to detect Candida h...

(Rice University) Motorized molecules activated by light target and drill through highly antibiotic resistant bacteria and kill them within minutes. The molecules can open bacteria to attack by drugs they previously resisted. The strategy could be applied to bacterial infections or diseases on the skin, in the lungs or in the gastrointestinal tract.

(Natural News) Lung moss (Lobaria pulmonaria) contains plant-based compounds with antibiotic and anti-fungal properties. A study from the Shandong University (SDU) tested their efficacy on drug-resistant Candida albicans to identify the most active molecules. The researchers received funding from the National Natural Science Foundation and the SDU’s Young Scholars Program. They published their findings in...

The World Health Organization earlier this year called antimicrobial resistance—pathogens’ ability to evade medical interventions—one of the 10 largest threats to global health. In the U.S. alone, according to a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report, 35,000 people die each year due to antibiotic-resistant infections. A new study published in the BMJ points to one major propagator of the problem: doctors are prescribing antibiotics when they shouldn’t. In fact, up to 43% of U.S. antibiotic prescriptions may be “inappropriate,” according to the research. Antibioti...

This study sought to evaluate the inhibitory properties of EOCs immobilised on silica microparticles againstH. pylori and to elucidate the mechanism of action of the immobilised antimicrobials. After the preparation and characterisation of the antimicrobial supports, the susceptibility ofH. pylori in the presence of the immobilised compounds was assessed by plate count, fluorescent viability staining and direct viable count –fluorescent in situ hybridisation analyses. The antimicrobial supports were found to inhibitH. pylori growth, and to induce morphological and metabolic alterations to theH. pylori membrane, with ...
