Anand Manoharan, Ranjith JayaramanIndian Journal of Medical Microbiology 2018 36(4):465-474Streptococcus pneumoniae continues to take a heavy toll on childhood mortality and morbidity across the developing world. An estimated 10.6 million invasive pneumococcal diseases (IPDs) occur every year, with nearly 1 million deaths in children under 5 years of age. Introduction of vaccines in the childhood immunisation programme in developed world has brought down the incidence of the disease considerably. However, childhood immunocompromising illnesses including HIV have increased the risk of IPD several folds. There is also a grow...

Conclusions: Carriage of MDR strains with a potential to express multidrug resistance poses a threat of dissemination in the community. Awareness for restricted use of antibiotics and proper sanitation can contain the spread of resistant bacteria.

Publication date: Available online 15 March 2019Source: Food Research InternationalAuthor(s): Bin He, Haoran Li, Zhihong Hu, Yihan Zhang, Min Sun, Shangkun Qiu, Bin ZengAbstractDouchi has attracted people's attention because of its unique taste and rich health function. The microbes participated in the koji-making process contribute to taste compounds of Douchi. However, the majority of studies on Douchi focused on their functional components and the microbial community in single type of Douchi during koji-making so far. In the present study, the taste components of Mucor-type and Aspergillus-type Douchi were measured init...

Authors: Hosseini SS, Ghaemi E, Koohsar F Abstract Background and Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of zinc oxide nanoparticle (ZnO-np) solution in the surface catheter on C. albicans adhesion and biofilm formation. Materials and Methods: Out of 260 isolates from urinary catheter, 133 were determined as C. albicans by common phenotypic and genotyping methods. ZnO nanoparticles with 30 nm were made by the sol-gel method, which was confirmed by XRD (X-ray diffraction) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) methods. Candidal adhesion and biofilm assays were performed on catheter surface...

Conclusion: This study provided evidence that ethanol extract of A. oliveriava and A. aucheri can inhibit the biofilm formation of S. aureus. As a traditional Iranian medicine, A. oliveriava and A. aucheri extracts have a potential antibiofilm formation against MRSA strains. PMID: 30873270 [PubMed]

Conclusion: Due to the significant antibacterial potency of bacteria-treated larvae secretions, the secretions can be a suitable candidate as a drug against antibiotic resistant bacteria, but additional tests are required. Since the antimicrobial peptides of insects have not yet produced any resistance in human pathogenic bacteria, they can be considered as a promising strategy for dealing with resistant infections.

This study included bacterial cultures, antibiotic sensitivities and resistance pattern in breast abscesses. Results: 268 patients were included in the study. 143 (53.4%) were Lactational abscesses and 125 (46.6%) were non-Lactational abscesses. 169 (63.0%) harbored S. aureus in which 86 (50.8%) were MRSA. MRSA was the predominant organism in the Lactational group while non-Lactational group had no growth or other organisms in culture in this study. Other growing organisms were Klebsiella pneumoniae, Bacteroides, Pseudomonas, Streptococcus species and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. On comparative analysis, MRSA showed sta...
