New antimicrobial surface reduces bacteria build-up on medical instruments

(Monash University) Patient infection from urinary catheters are a global health concern. In a world-first, Monash University researchers have developed a new 3D antimicrobial surface to reduce bacterial build-up. The study saw a reduction in bacteria colonisation for three leading Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) pathogens, including E. coli.

This study clarifies the clonal background and extensive virulence genotypes of the E. coli strains that cause hemorrhagic pneumonia in domestic animals (mainly dogs and cats), shows that such strains circulate among animals and humans, identifies a substantial intestinal colonization component to their lifestyle, and extends their known clinical manifestations to include bacteremia and urinary tract infection. The findings place these strains better into context vis-a-vis current understandings of E. coli phylogeny, ecology, and pathogenesis; identify questions for future research; and may prove relevant for surveillance ...

Conclusion: The prevalence of UTI and MDR to commonly used antibiotics among diabetic patients is alarming, and thus, isolation of uropathogenic bacteria and antimicrobial susceptibility testing is crucial for the treatment of UTI in persons with diabetes.

Curr Microbiol. 2021 Sep 14. doi: 10.1007/s00284-021-02650-2. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTUrinary tract infections (UTI) are one of the most common diseases worldwide and Escherichia coli is the most common causative bacteria. Empirical treatment is challenging due to antimicrobial or multidrug-resistance. The aims of this study were to determine the uropathogens and their antimicrobial susceptibility profile, as well as to identify the phylogroups and virulence genes of E. coli strains, associated with community-acquired UTI in outpatients admitted at a Brazilian Hospital in southeast Brazil. In total, 47 bacterial stra...

Planta Med DOI: 10.1055/a-1585-6322 Orthosiphon stamineus leaves (Java tea) extract is traditionally used for the treatment of urinary tract infections. According to recent in vitro data, animal infection studies, and transcriptomic investigations, polymethoxylated flavones from Java tea exert antiadhesive activity against uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC). This antiadhesive activity has been shown to reduce bladder and kidney lesion in a mice infection model. As no data on the antivirulent activity of Java tea intake on humans are available, a biomedical study was performed on 20 healthy volunteers who self-adminis...
