Authors: Selan L, Vrenna G, Ettorre E, Papa R, Artini M Abstract Community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) USA300 is responsible of many kinds of infections of skin and soft-tissue. Antibiotic resistance, biofilm formation and the ability to adhere and invade are virulence factors that contribute to MRSA pathogenesis. In some cases, decreased bioavailability of antibiotics in systemic circulation could result; in these conditions sub-therapeutic levels of the antibiotics may be established, exposing bacteria to sub-inhibitory concentrations. On the basis of several published scienti...

ahman Bioassay directed isolation of secondary metabolites from the rhizomes of Zingiber montanum (Fam. ‎Zingiberaceae) led to the isolation of mono-, sesqui-, and di-terpenes. The compounds were characterized as (E)-8(17),12-labdadiene-15,16-dial (1), zerumbol (2), zerumbone (3), buddledone A (4), furanodienone (5), germacrone (6), borneol (7), and camphor (8) by analysing one-dimensional (1D) (1H and 13C) and two-dimensional (2D) (COSY, HSQC, HMBC, and NOESY) NMR data and mass spectra. Among these terpenes, compounds 1 and 2 revealed potential antibacterial activity (minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) values...

(CNN) — From climate change to superbugs, the World Health Organization has laid out 10 big threats to our global health in 2019. And unless these threats get addressed, millions of lives will be in jeopardy. Here’s a snapshot of 10 urgent health issues, according to the United Nations’ public health agency: Not vaccinating when you can One of the most controversial recent health topics in the US is now an international concern. “Vaccine hesitancy — the reluctance or refusal to vaccinate despite the availability of vaccines — threatens to reverse progress made in tackling vaccine-prevent...

Abstract Antibiotics are used globally and, after use, they enter water sources in different ways. The presence of these compounds in the environment has created concerns about the toxicity of aquatic organisms and the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The purpose of this study was to remove cefalexin from aqueous solutions by enzymatic oxidation using response surface methodology (RSM). For this purpose, batch experiments were performed to evaluate the effect of independent variables, including temperature, pH, contact time, enzyme activity, HBT mediator concentration, and antibiotic concentration. The residual ...

We describe the design and preclinical development of AB-SA01, a fixed-composition bacteriophage product intended to treat Staphylococcus aureus infections. AB-SA01 contains three naturally occurring, obligately lytic myoviruses related to Staphylococcus phage K. AB-SA01 component phages have been sequenced and contain no identifiable bacterial virulence or antibiotic resistance genes. In vitro, AB-SA01 killed 94.5% of 401 clinical Staphylococcus aureus isolates, including methicillin-resistant and vancomycin-intermediate ones for a total of 95% of the 205 known multidrug-resistant isolates. The spontaneous frequency of re...

Publication date: 15 April 2019Source: Chemical Engineering Journal, Volume 362Author(s): Hongkun Ma, Lingling Zhang, Xinmei Huang, Wei Ding, Hui Jin, Zifu Li, Shikun Cheng, Lei ZhengAbstractA novel and efficient three-dimensional electrode galvanic cell enhanced Fe2+/persulfate (3D-GFP) system was used to inactivate antibiotic resistant E. coli (AR E. coli) for the first time. The 3D-GFP system was compared with two-dimensional electrode GFP. The 3D-GDP system obviously had a better disinfection effect than the 2D electrode GDP and achieved a 4.6 log disinfection of bacteria within 10 min. Several disinfection experimen...
