Vasanthakumari Neela Antibiotic resistance is a problem that continues to challenge the healthcare sector, especially in clinically significant pathogens like methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Herein is described the isolation and structure elucidation of a bioactive compound from Allium stipitatum with antimicrobial activity. Crude Allium stipitatum dichloromethane extract (ASDE) was subjected to systematic purification by chromatographic procedures to afford various bioactive fractions. A fraction that exhibited anti-MRSA activity (4 µg·mL−1) was further characterized...

ConclusionPrevalence of MDRO among cases of sepsis was found to be (66.7%). Most isolated organisms were resistant to commonly used drugs. Antibiotic stewardship (ASP) program is essentially needed to stop abuse of antibiotics and accordingly development of MDROs. Strict infection control measures mainly HH procedures are needed, to minimize the spread of MDROs.

Hoon Kim One hundred and seventy seven acetone extracts of lichen and 258 ethyl acetate extracts of cultured lichen-forming fungi (LFF) were screened for antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcus aureus and Enterococcus faecium using a disk diffusion method. Divaricatic acid was isolated from Evernia mesomorpha and identified by LC-MS, 1H-, 13C- and DEPT-NMR. Purified divaricatic acid was effective against Gram + bacteria, such as Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Streptococcus mutans, and Enterococcus faecium, with the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) values ranging from 7.0 to 64.0 μg...

van A Abstract Melaleuca alternifolia tea tree oil (TTO) is largely used in cutaneous infections. Clinical observations reported antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral activities, whereas in vitro experiments ascribed most of biological properties to terpinen-4-ol. Since different plant chemotypes and storage conditions result in variations of chemical composition of commercially available TTO, in this study we investigated the antimicrobial activity and the chemical profile of ten commercially available TTO products. The antimicrobial activity was assessed against Candida glabrata, Herpes simplex virus type 1 (...

Conclusion: There is a change in the spectrum and antimicrobial susceptibility of organisms causing IE. We encountered several difficulties with the use of the MDC as 43.5% patients had no predisposing factors for IE and blood cultures were negative in 22.6% cases. In our study, PVE was the most common predisposing condition for IE. VGS followed by enterococci were found to be the commonest cause for IE in our setting. Both organisms show variable drug resist patterns. MRSA was isolated in 1 patient only. Thus vancomycin may not be required as empiric treatment in our setting. This is important from the perspective of anti...
