L-lactic acid production from D-xylose with

Conclusions: Integration of two copies of the ldhL gene in C. sonorensis was sufficient to obtain good L-lactic acid production from D-xylose. Under anaerobic conditions, the ldhL strain with exogenous xylose isomerase and xylulokinase genes expressed and the endogenous xylose reductase and xylitol dehydrogenase genes deleted had the highest L- lactic acid production.

ConclusionsOur results show for the first time that benzydamine and MoWs containing benzydamine impairC. albicans capacity to form biofilm and counteract biofilm persistence and regrowth.Clinical relevanceBenzydamine and MoWs containing benzydamine capacity to affectC. albicans biofilm provides an interesting tool to prevent and treat oral candidiasis. Likely, restrainingC. albicans colonization through daily oral hygiene may counteract colonization and persistence by other critical oral pathogens, such asStreptococcus mutans, whose increased virulence has been linked to the presence ofC. albicans biofilm.

CONCLUSION: Within the limits of our study, Candida albicans is more frequently associated with periodontitis. The potential role of C. albicans in periodontitis pathogenesis is very complex. More studies on biofilm associated with different forms of periodontitis are necessary. It is also important to assess the coexistence of periodontitis and caries and the associated biofilms.PMID:35058983 | PMC:PMC8766183 | DOI:10.1155/2022/4625368

ConclusionsReported MDRO outbreaks during the COVID-19 pandemic were most often caused by CRAB (including our outbreak) andC. auris. Inadequate PPE/hand hygiene adherence, PPE shortage, and high antibiotic use were the most commonly reported potentially modifiable factors contributing to the outbreaks. These findings should be considered for the prevention of MDRO outbreaks during future COVID-19 waves.

Recent studies have documented the complexity of the intestinal fungal community ( ‘mycobiome’) in mice, and clinical and experimental observations have shown that the mycobiome influences both gut health and disease, e.g., inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In fact, prior studies have shown that Crohn’s disease (CD) patients, compared to healthy controls, harbor higher level s of intestinal Candida tropicalis (Ct), which is the major fungal species detected in the colons of colitic mice after DSS challenge.

The synthesized AgNPs were characterized by UV-visible spectroscopy and Furrier Transformer Infra-Red spectroscopy to justify the reduction and stabilization of AgNPs from its precursors. AgNPs characteristic absorption peak was observed at 420 nm in the UV-visible spectrum. The SEM and TEM analysis demonstrated the spherical shape of the synthesized nanoparticles with particle sizes ranging from 30 nm to 80...

Curr Oncol. 2021 Dec 27;29(1):111-121. doi: 10.3390/curroncol29010009.ABSTRACTWe retrospectively collected PD patients with a performance of bile culture between 2007 and 2019 in our institute. As to bile culture, we used a swab to do intraoperative bile cultures after transection of the CBD. IAA was defined as the documental bacteriological culture from either a turbid discharge from the intraoperatively placed drain in patients with a clinical picture consistent with infection or a postoperative fluid collection managed by CT-guided placement of drains. A total of 1244 PD patients were identified, and 539 (43.3%) subject...
