Comparison of antibiotic susceptibility of Escherichia coli between community-acquired and post-prostate biopsy acute bacterial prostatitis.

Comparison of antibiotic susceptibility of Escherichia coli between community-acquired and post-prostate biopsy acute bacterial prostatitis. Arch Esp Urol. 2020 Dec;72(10):1018-1025 Authors: Park MG, Cho MC, Cho SY, Lee JW Abstract OBJECTIVES: To compare the antibiotic susceptibility of Escherichia coli (E. coli) between community- acquired acute bacterial prostatitis (CA-ABP) and ABP following transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy (Bx-ABP). METHODS: A total of 4,383 patients underwent prostate biopsy from January 2005 to June 2014. Among these patients, 34 had Bx-ABP; of which 22 patients had E. coli identified in their urine or blood culture. E. coli was also identified in 91 out of 209 patients with CA-ABP in urine or blood culture. We investigated patient and microbiological characteristics. RESULTS: The Bx-ABP (59.1%) group showed a higher bacteremia prevalence than the CA-ABP group (13.2%) (p

Authors: Crapé L, Strubbe B, Cesmeli E, de Clerck F Abstract A 24-year-old male presented with abdominal pain, postprandial vomiting and weight loss. Lab results showed an elevated serum eosinophil count and CT-scan demonstrated a thickened antral, duodenal and jejunal wall. Repetitive endoscopic mucosal biopsies were normal. Work-up of eosinophilia-associated gastro-intestinal disorders excluded secondary causes. Bone marrow showed an elevated eosinophil count without arguments for a primary hypereosinophilic syndrome. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle biopsy detected a strongly elevated number of eo...

A method was developed for the rapid analysis and evaluation of the viability of bacteriophage-infected Escherichia coli (E.coli) XL-1 directly in a conducting suspension by using a slot-mode sensor. The method is based on recording the changes in the depth and frequency of resonant absorption peaks in the frequency dependence of the insertion loss of the sensor before and after the biologic interaction of E. coli with specific bacteriophages. The possibility was shown of recording the infection of E.

Based on single factor experiments, ranges of the main conditions affecting reduction levels were confirmed as ultrasound frequency (20–60 kHz), ultrasound power (120–200 W/L), and washing time (5–15 min). Response surface method centred on a 3-factor Box-Behnken Design was applie...

ConclusionIn the face of rising TRUSPB sepsis and higher sepsis rates with ESBL carriers despite additional prophylaxis, introduction of a targeted antibiotic prophylaxis prior to TRUSPB sepsis prostate biopsies based on rectal swabs or urine cultures may reduce sepsis rates or clinicians may find themselves leaning towards increasingly performing transperineal biopsies with lower sepsis rates supporting the ‘trexit’ initiative.

This study aims at improving the methane yield from anaerobic digestion by coupling with ultrasound or E. coli/A. niger biodegradation. The effect of the different treatments was first assessed in a perfectly mixed batch reactor (PMBR), using diluted CG at concentrations of 0.2%, 1.7%, and 3.2% (v/v). Later, the best conditions were replicated in an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor to simulate full-scale practical applications. Experiments in the PMBR showed that ultrasound or A. niger biodegradation steps improved methane yield up to 11% for 0.2% CG and 99% for 1.7% CG, respectively. CG biodegradation by E. ...

This study evaluated the effect of individual and combined application of ultrasound (40 kHz, 100 W) and ozone on the inactivation of foodborne Escherichia coli and Salmonella, as well as their impact on cabbage color and vitamin C content. Plate count, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and flow cytometry (FCM) following single or double staining with carboxyfluorescein diacetate and (or) propidium iodide were used to determine bacterial inactivation parameters, such as cell culturability, membrane integrity, intracellular enzyme activity, and injured and dead cells. The results of FCM and SEM showed that ultrasound trea...
