This study aimed to analyze the quality of 18 rivers located in Quito, the capital province of Pichincha, Ecuador, through physico-chemical and microbial parameters. The E. coli and total coliforms assessments were performed by a counting procedure in growth media. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was realized to detect several microbial genera, as well as Candida albicans, two parasites (Cryptosporidium and Giardia spp.) and E. coli pathotypes: enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC), enteroaggregative E. coli (EAEC), enteroinvasive E. coli (EIEC) and enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC). Additionally, physico-chemical parameters and ...

issa K. Jones The presence of commensal bacteria enhances both acute and persistent infection of murine noroviruses. For several enteric viral pathogens, mechanisms by which these bacteria enhance infection involve direct interactions between the virus and bacteria. While it has been demonstrated that human noroviruses bind to a variety of commensal bacteria, it is not known if this is also true for murine noroviruses. The goal of this study was to characterize interactions between murine noroviruses and commensal bacteria and determine the impact of bacterial growth conditions, incubation temperature and time, on muri...

Abstract Although the candidemia still remains a serious health problem, the study of candidemia in cancer patients is limited. We conducted a retrospective analysis of candidemia among 31 adult patients hospitalized in one oncological center. The mean annual incidence of candidemia was 0.14 ± 0.05 / 1000 patient-days (range 0.04-0.91). In 10 patients (32.3%), the catheter-related infection was diagnosed; in the remaining 21 patients (67.7%), it was a secondary infection. From 31 patients of candidemia, 15 died (48.4% 30-day mortality), but an overall mortality rate during hospital stay was 61.3% (19 cases)...

Candida is a dominant fungal pathogen in immunocompromised hosts, leading to opportunistic infections. Complement with its multifaceted functions is involved in the immune defense against this yeast, and recently several novel aspects have emerged in this old battle. It is clear that Candida can adopt both roles as a colonizer or as a pathogen. In our article, we focus on the molecular mechanisms of the Candida-complement interplay, which occur in disseminated disease as well as locally on skin or on mucous membranes in mouth and vagina; the mechanisms can be supposed to be the same. Activation of the complement system by ...

Authors: Sánchez-Ventosa Á, Cano-Ortiz A, Villarrubia Cuadrado A Abstract In this case-report we describe the first reported case of early-onset fungal interface keratitis (IK) after Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) successfully treated with penetrating keratoplasty (PK) during the active stage of infection. A patient with graft failure after Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK) was operated on with DMEK. Donor rim culture and broth were positive for Candida albicans. Several interface infiltrates were confirmed and localized using anterior segment optical coh...

In this study, we report the emergence ofFKS-mutantCandida albicans/glabrata in Switzerland and provide the microbiological and clinical characteristics of 9 candidemic episodes. All patients were previously exposed to echinocandins (median 26  days; range 15–77). Five patients received initial echinocandin therapy with persistent candidemia in 4 of them. Overall mortality was 33%.
