Detection of periodontal pathogens in mothers of preterm birth and/or low weight. Med Oral Patol Oral Cir Bucal. 2019 Oct 27;: Authors: Calixto NR, Alves CM, Abreu LM, Thomaz EB, Vidal FC, Filho IS, Lopes FF Abstract BACKGROUND: The present study aims to estimate the possible relationship between periodontal pathogens in the oral cavity and the birth of Preterm Birth (PTB) and/or Low Birth Weight (LBW). MATERIAL AND METHODS: It's a case- control study with the subgengival biofilm samples were collected from four sites up deeper until 48 hours postpartum and were processes by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) for presence the periodontal pathogens Prevotella intermedia (Pi), Fusobacterium nucleatum (Fn), Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg), Treponema denticola (Td), Tannerella forsythia (Tf) e Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (Aa). The mothers were divided into case grup (babies weighing

How the physical-chemical properties intrinsic to each material over time can affect adhesion, given constant cell turnover and biofilm ...

This report describes a rare case of acute pylephlebitis complicated by hepatic abscess formation secondary to Fusobacterium nucleatum. The patient is a 48-year-old woman who presented with worsening abdominal pain and malaise for 3 weeks. She had a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery 4 months earlier that showed a phlegmon at the surgical site on a contrast computed tomography scan postsurgery. Physical examination revealed right upper quadrant tenderness, and magnetic resonance imaging of the liver showed portal vein thrombosis with multiple hepatic abscesses. The patient was started empirically on cefepime and metronidazol...
A comprehensive understanding about the pathogenesis of otitis media (OM), one of the most common pediatric diseases, has the potential to alleviate a substantial disease burden across the globe. Advancements in genetic and bioinformatic detection methods, as well as a growing interest in the microbiome, has enhanced the capability of researchers to investigate the interplay between host genes, host microbiome, invading bacteria, and resulting OM susceptibility. Early studies deciphering the role of genetics in OM susceptibility assessed the heritability of the phenotype in twin and triplet studies, followed by linkage stu...
Conclusions: An imbalance in the oral bacterial flora could be a risk factor for AE-IPF.
Conclusions: Together, our results may lead to new insights for prevention of RTIs and antibiotic utilization in childhood.
This study has identified a unique LPS sensing mechanism of the oral epithelium to overcome a periodontal infection associated with LPS derived from gram-negative microbes that arises during dysbiosis. PMID: 31732934 [PubMed - in process]
In this study, we analyzed and compared the intestinal microbiota composition of patients with idiopathic focal epilepsy (n = 30) and healthy volunteer group (n = 10) by 16s ribosomal DNA sequencing. Proteobacteria phylum was found to be higher in patients with epilepsy (25.4%) than in healthy volunteers group (1.5%). The genera of Campylobacter, Delftia, Haemophilus, Lautropia, Neisseria among Proteobacteria phylum were found to be statistically significantly higher in patients with epilepsy than in healthy volunteers (p
ConclusionsThis study shows that the alveolar microbiota profile in BAL samples from TB and IP patients, representing infectious and non-infectious lung diseases, respectively, is characterized by decreased diversity.
ConclusionsCollectively, our data expand on the so far reported inhibitory spectrum of amixicile and demonstrates that it inhibits anaerobic bacteria, including both clinical isolates and laboratory strains.Graphical abstract
