Uropathogenic Escherichia coli: Strains of Escherichia coli that preferentially grow and persist within the urinary tract. They exhibit certain virulence factors and strategies that cause urinary tract infections.Urinary Tract Infections: Inflammatory responses of the epithelium of the URINARY TRACT to microbial invasions. They are often bacterial infections with associated BACTERIURIA and PYURIA.Adhesins, Escherichia coli: Thin, filamentous protein structures, including proteinaceous capsular antigens (fimbrial antigens), that mediate adhesion of E. coli to surfaces and play a role in pathogenesis. They have a high affinity for various epithelial cells.Fimbriae, Bacterial: Thin, hairlike appendages, 1 to 20 microns in length and often occurring in large numbers, present on the cells of gram-negative bacteria, particularly Enterobacteriaceae and Neisseria. Unlike flagella, they do not possess motility, but being protein (pilin) in nature, they possess antigenic and hemagglutinating properties. They are of medical importance because some fimbriae mediate the attachment of bacteria to cells via adhesins (ADHESINS, BACTERIAL). Bacterial fimbriae refer to common pili, to be distinguished from the preferred use of "pili", which is confined to sex pili (PILI, SEX).Escherichia coli Infections: Infections with bacteria of the species ESCHERICHIA COLI.Escherichia coli: A species of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria (GRAM-NEGATIVE FACULTATIVELY ANAEROBIC RODS) commonly found in the lower part of the intestine of warm-blooded animals. It is usually nonpathogenic, but some strains are known to produce DIARRHEA and pyogenic infections. Pathogenic strains (virotypes) are classified by their specific pathogenic mechanisms such as toxins (ENTEROTOXIGENIC ESCHERICHIA COLI), etc.Urinary Tract: The duct which coveys URINE from the pelvis of the KIDNEY through the URETERS, BLADDER, and URETHRA.Escherichia coli Proteins: Proteins obtained from ESCHERICHIA COLI.Bacterial Adhesion: Physicochemical property of fimbriated (FIMBRIAE, BACTERIAL) and non-fimbriated bacteria of attaching to cells, tissue, and nonbiological surfaces.

Conventional techniques used for testing for the hybridization product include dot blot assays, Southern blot assays, and DNA:RNA hybrid-specific antibody tests. Conventional labels for the DNA probe include the radioisotope labels 32P and 125I and the chemical label biotin. The use of DNA probes provides a specific, sensitive, rapid, and inexpensive replacement for cell culture techniques for diagnosing infections.Adhesins, Bacterial: Cell-surface components or appendages of bacteria that facilitate adhesion (BACTERIAL ADHESION) to other cells or to inanimate surfaces. Most fimbriae (FIMBRIAE, BACTERIAL) of gram-negative bacteria function as adhesins, but in many cases it is a minor subunit protein at the tip of the fimbriae that is the actual adhesin. In gram-positive bacteria, a protein or polysaccharide surface layer serves as the specific adhesin. What is sometimes called polymeric adhesin (BIOFILMS) is distinct from protein adhesin.Diarrhea: An increased liquidity or decreased consistency of FECES, such as running stool. Fecal consistency is related to the ratio of water-holding capacity of insoluble solids to total water, rather than the amount of water present. Diarrhea is not hyperdefecation or increased fecal weight.Adhesins, Escherichia coli: Thin, filamentous protein structures, including proteinaceous capsular antigens (fimbrial antigens), that mediate adhesion of E. coli to surfaces and play a role in pathogenesis. They have a high affinity for various epithelial cells.Awards and PrizesBacterial Adhesion: Physicochemical property of fimbriated (FIMBRIAE, BACTERIAL) and non-fimbriated bacteria of attaching to cells, tissue, and nonbiological surfaces.

Unlike flagella, they do not possess motility, but being protein (pilin) in nature, they possess antigenic and hemagglutinating properties. They are of medical importance because some fimbriae mediate the attachment of bacteria to cells via adhesins (ADHESINS, BACTERIAL). Bacterial fimbriae refer to common pili, to be distinguished from the preferred use of "pili", which is confined to sex pili (PILI, SEX).Shiga Toxin: A toxin produced by SHIGELLA DYSENTERIAE. It is the prototype of class of toxins that inhibit protein synthesis by blocking the interaction of ribosomal RNA; (RNA, RIBOSOMAL) with PEPTIDE ELONGATION FACTORS.Shiga-Toxigenic Escherichia coli: Strains of ESCHERICHIA COLI with the ability to produce at least one or more of at least two antigenically distinct, usually bacteriophage-mediated cytotoxins: SHIGA TOXIN 1 and SHIGA TOXIN 2. These bacteria can cause severe disease in humans including bloody DIARRHEA and HEMOLYTIC UREMIC SYNDROME.Shiga Toxins: A class of toxins that inhibit protein synthesis by blocking the interaction of ribosomal RNA; (RNA, RIBOSOMAL) with PEPTIDE ELONGATION FACTORS.

In gram-positive bacteria, a protein or polysaccharide surface layer serves as the specific adhesin. What is sometimes called polymeric adhesin (BIOFILMS) is distinct from protein adhesin.Shiga Toxin 2: A toxin produced by certain pathogenic strains of ESCHERICHIA COLI such as ESCHERICHIA COLI O157. It shares 50-60% homology with SHIGA TOXIN and SHIGA TOXIN 1.Escherichia coli: A species of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria (GRAM-NEGATIVE FACULTATIVELY ANAEROBIC RODS) commonly found in the lower part of the intestine of warm-blooded animals.

It has been isolated from sewage, soil, silage, and from feces of healthy animals and man. Infection with this bacterium leads to encephalitis, meningitis, endocarditis, and abortion.Foodborne Diseases: Acute illnesses, usually affecting the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, brought on by consuming contaminated food or beverages. Most of these diseases are infectious, caused by a variety of bacteria, viruses, or parasites that can be foodborne. Sometimes the diseases are caused by harmful toxins from the microbes or other chemicals present in the food. Especially in the latter case, the condition is often called food poisoning.Campylobacter jejuni: A species of bacteria that resemble small tightly coiled spirals. Its organisms are known to cause abortion in sheep and fever and enteritis in man and may be associated with enteric diseases of calves, lambs, and other animals.Escherichia coli O157: A verocytotoxin-producing serogroup belonging to the O subfamily of Escherichia coli which has been shown to cause severe food-borne disease.

(1/525) Molecular basis for the enterocyte tropism exhibited by Salmonella typhimurium type 1 fimbriae.

Salmonella typhimurium exhibits a distinct tropism for mouse enterocytes that is linked to their expression of type 1 fimbriae. The distinct binding traits of Salmonella type 1 fimbriae is also reflected in their binding to selected mannosylated proteins and in their ability to promote secondary bacterial aggregation on enterocyte surfaces. The determinant of binding in Salmonella type 1 fimbriae is a 35-kDa structurally distinct fimbrial subunit, FimHS, because inactivation of fimHS abolished binding activity in the resulting mutant without any apparent effect on fimbrial expression. Surprisingly, when expressed in the absence of other fimbrial components and as a translational fusion protein with MalE, FimHS failed to demonstrate any specific binding tropism and bound equally to all cells and mannosylated proteins tested. To determine if the binding specificity of Salmonella type 1 fimbriae was determined by the fimbrial shaft that is intimately associated with FimHS, we replaced the amino-terminal half of FimHS with the corresponding sequence from Escherichia coli FimH (FimHE) that contains the receptor binding domain of FimHE. The resulting hybrid fimbriae bearing FimHES on a Salmonella fimbrial shaft exhibited binding traits that resembled that of Salmonella rather than E. coli fimbriae. Apparently, the quaternary constraints imposed by the fimbrial shaft on the adhesin determine the distinct binding traits of S. typhimurium type 1 fimbriae.  (+info)

(2/525) P fimbriae and other adhesins enhance intestinal persistence of Escherichia coli in early infancy.

Resident and transient Escherichia coli strains were identified in the rectal flora of 22 Pakistani infants followed from birth to 6 months of age. All strains were tested for O-antigen expression, adhesin specificity (P fimbriae, other mannose-resistant adhesins or type 1 fimbriae) and adherence to the colonic cell line HT-29. Resident strains displayed higher mannose-resistant adherence to HT-29 cells, and expressed P fimbriae (P = 0.0036) as well as other mannose-resistant adhesins (P = 0.012) more often than transient strains. In strains acquired during the first month of life, P fimbriae were 12 times more frequent in resident than in transient strains (P = 0.0006). The O-antigen distribution did not differ between resident and transient strains, and none of the resident P-fimbriated strains belonged to previously recognized uropathogenic clones. The results suggest that adhesins mediating adherence to intestinal epithelial cells, especially P fimbriae, enhance the persistence of E. coli in the large intestine of infants.  (+info)

(3/525) Organization of biogenesis genes for aggregative adherence fimbria II defines a virulence gene cluster in enteroaggregative Escherichia coli.

Several virulence-related genes have been described for prototype enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) strain 042, which has been shown to cause diarrhea in human volunteers. Among these factors are the enterotoxins Pet and EAST and the fimbrial antigen aggregative adherence fimbria II (AAF/II), all of which are encoded on the 65-MDa virulence plasmid pAA2. Using nucleotide sequence analysis and insertional mutagenesis, we have found that the genes required for the expression of each of these factors, as well as the transcriptional activator of fimbrial expression AggR, map to a distinct cluster on the pAA2 plasmid map. The cluster is 23 kb in length and includes two regions required for expression of the AAF/II fimbria. These fimbrial biogenesis genes feature a unique organization in which the chaperone, subunit, and transcriptional activator lie in one cluster, whereas the second, unlinked cluster comprises a silent chaperone gene, usher, and invasin reminiscent of Dr family fimbrial clusters. This plasmid-borne virulence locus may represent an important set of virulence determinants in EAEC strains.  (+info)

(4/525) Adhesins as targets for vaccine development.

Blocking the primary stages of infection, namely bacterial attachment to host cell receptors and colonization of the mucosal surface, may be the most effective strategy to prevent bacterial infections. Bacterial attachment usually involves an interaction between a bacterial surface protein called an adhesin and the host cell receptor. Recent preclinical vaccine studies with the FimH adhesin (derived from uropathogenic Escherichia coli) have confirmed that antibodies elicited against an adhesin can impede colonization, block infection, and prevent disease. The studies indicate that prophylactic vaccination with adhesins can block bacterial infections. With recent advances in the identification, characterization, and isolation of other adhesins, similar approaches are being explored to prevent infections, from otitis media and dental caries to pneumonia and sepsis.  (+info)

(5/525) The mast cell tumor necrosis factor alpha response to FimH-expressing Escherichia coli is mediated by the glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored molecule CD48.

Mast cells are well known for their harmful role in IgE-mediated hypersensitivity reactions, but their physiological role remains a mystery. Several recent studies have reported that mast cells play a critical role in innate immunity in mice by releasing tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) to recruit neutrophils to sites of enterobacterial infection. In some cases, the mast cell TNF-alpha response was triggered when these cells directly bound FimH on the surface of Escherichia coli. We have identified CD48, a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored molecule, to be the complementary FimH-binding moiety in rodent mast cell membrane fractions. We showed that (i) pretreatment of mast cell membranes with antibodies to CD48 or phospholipase C inhibited binding of FimH+ E. coli, (ii) FimH+ E. coli but not a FimH- derivative bound isolated CD48 in a mannose-inhibitable manner, (iii) binding of FimH+ bacteria to Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells was markedly increased when these cells were transfected with CD48 cDNA, and (iv) antibodies to CD48 specifically blocked the mast cell TNF-alpha response to FimH+ E. coli. Thus, CD48 is a functionally relevant microbial receptor on mast cells that plays a role in triggering inflammation.  (+info)

(6/525) Decay-accelerating factor and cytoskeleton redistribution pattern in HeLa cells infected with recombinant Escherichia coli strains expressing Dr family of adhesins.

Escherichia coli strains expressing Dr fimbriae are able to enter epithelial cells by interacting with a complement-regulatory protein, decay-accelerating factor. This model of bacterial internalization, with a well-characterized bacterial ligand and host receptor, provides a unique opportunity to investigate the early stages of invasion. We used immunofluorescence staining techniques to examine the distribution of receptor and cytoskeletal proteins in HeLa cells infected with E. coli recombinant strains that expressed Dr family of adhesins: Dr, Dr-II, F1845, AFA-I, and AFA-III. A major rearrangement of decay-accelerating factor was found at the adherence sites of recombinant strains expressing Dr, Dr-II, and F1845 adhesins. The changes in the distribution of receptor were significantly smaller on HeLa cells infected with E. coli bearing AFA-I or AFA-III afimbrial adhesins. Receptor aggregation was associated with the redistribution of cytoskeleton-associated proteins such as actin, alpha-actinin, ezrin, and occasionally tropomyosin. Purified Dr fimbriae coated on polystyrene beads were capable of triggering clustering of receptor and accumulating actin at the adhesion sites of beads to HeLa cells. Using scanning and transmission electron microscopic techniques, we have shown that beads coated with Dr fimbriae, as opposed to beads coated with bovine serum albumin, were enwrapped by cellular microvilli and ultimately internalized into HeLa cells. This indicates that interaction of Dr fimbriae with decay-accelerating factor is associated with redistribution of receptor and is sufficient to promote bacterial internalization.  (+info)

(7/525) X-ray structure of the FimC-FimH chaperone-adhesin complex from uropathogenic Escherichia coli.

Type 1 pili-adhesive fibers expressed in most members of the Enterobacteriaceae family-mediate binding to mannose receptors on host cells through the FimH adhesin. Pilus biogenesis proceeds by way of the chaperone/usher pathway. The x-ray structure of the FimC-FimH chaperone-adhesin complex from uropathogenic Escherichia coli at 2.5 angstrom resolution reveals the basis for carbohydrate recognition and for pilus assembly. The carboxyl-terminal pilin domain of FimH has an immunoglobulin-like fold, except that the seventh strand is missing, leaving part of the hydrophobic core exposed. A donor strand complementation mechanism in which the chaperone donates a strand to complete the pilin domain explains the basis for both chaperone function and pilus biogenesis.  (+info)

(8/525) Virulence characteristics of Escherichia coli in acute bacterial prostatitis.

To assess the urovirulence characteristics of Escherichia coli strains causing acute prostatitis, urinary isolates from men with acute prostatitis (n=107) and from women with acute uncomplicated pyelonephritis (n=76) were examined for the prevalence of sfa, foc, and 3 papG allele genotypes and phenotypes and for the production of alpha-hemolysin and cytotoxic necrotizing factor 1. The papG allele III and foc gene were found more frequently and the papG allele II less frequently among prostatitis than from pyelonephritis isolates. A higher proportion of hly+ cnf1+ genotype in prostatitis strains (64% vs. 36%) was particularly striking. Both prostatitis and pyelonephritis strains expressed virulence factors similarly except for a higher proportion of nonhemolytic prostatitis isolates. Although the pathogenetic mechanisms of urinary tract infections in men and women may differ, virulence factors such as adhesins and cytotoxins may have important roles in the pathogenesis of acute prostatitis.  (+info)

The TonB- derivative showed reduced virulence in a mouse model of urinary tract infection. Virulence was restored when the tonB gene was introduced on a plasmid. To determine the importance of the individual TonB-dependent iron transport systems during urinary tract infections, mutants defective in each of the CFT073 high-affinity iron transport systems were constructed and tested in the mouse model. ...
The main causative agent of human urinary tract infections is the uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) pathotype. It may cause disease due to its ability to express a number of bacterial virulence factors. Fimbrial adhesins are particularly important for the initial establishment of infection in the urinary tract. The fimbriae are hair-like structures protruding from the bacterial cell and by attaching to specific receptors in the urinary tract they mediate adherence to different cell types, allowing the bacteria to resist the shear forces from urine flow. The UPEC strains generally carry multiple determinants for fimbrial adhesins. Previous studies have indicated that there is a co-regulation between different fimbrial genes and one factor that has been implicated in this is the PapB protein, acting as a transcriptional regulator of P-fimbrial expression. The PapB protein can be regarded as the prototype of a family of fimbrial regulators that show high homology between different fimbrial ...
Author Summary Urinary tract infections (UTIs) represent a major growing threat to global public health. With over 15 million cases a year in the United States alone, UTIs are characterized by very high recurrence/reinfection rates, particularly among women and minority groups [1]. The predominant cause of UTIs is uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) bacteria, whose wide-spread and increasing antibiotic-resistance has made the development of alternative anti-UPEC treatments progressively more important and urgent. UPECs foremost virulence factor is hair-like surface structures called type 1 fimbriae. Thus, one such potentially promising therapeutic approach may be to manipulate bacterias own cellular circuitry toward inducing UPEC to turn off their fimbriae expression-rendering individual microbes benign. This task requires detailed understanding of molecular mechanisms involved, which may be significantly aided by in silico modeling. However, for UPEC fimbriation control circuit and many other
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are one of the most common bacterial infections with global expansion. These infections are predominantly caused by uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC). Totally, 123 strains of Escherichia coli isolated from UTIs patients, using bacterial culture method were subjected to polymerase chain reactions for detection of various O- serogroups, some urovirulence factors, antibiotic resistance genes and resistance to 13 different antibiotics. According to data, the distribution of O1, O2, O6, O7 and O16 serogroups were 2.43%, besides O22, O75 and O83 serogroups were 1.62%. Furthermore, the distribution of O4, O8, O15, O21 and O25 serogroups were 5.69%, 3.25%, 21.13%, 4.06% and 26.01%, respectively. Overall, the fim virulence gene had the highest (86.17%) while the usp virulence gene had the lowest distributions of virulence genes in UPEC strains isolated from UTIs patients. The vat and sen virulence genes were not detected in any UPEC strains. Totally, aadA1 (52.84%), and qnr
Bacteria use two-component systems (TCSs) to react appropriately to environmental stimuli. Typical TCSs comprise a sensor histidine kinase that acts as a receptor coupled to a partner response regulator that coordinates changes in bacterial behavior, often through its activity as a transcriptional regulator. TCS interactions are typically confined to cognate pairs of histidine kinases and response regulators. We describe two distinct TCSs in uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) that interact to mediate a response to ferric iron. The PmrAB and QseBC TCSs were both required for proper transcriptional response to ferric iron. Ferric iron induced the histidine kinase PmrB to phosphotransfer to both its cognate response regulator PmrA and the noncognate response regulator QseB, leading to transcriptional responses coordinated by both regulators. Pretreatment of the UPEC strain UTI89 with ferric iron led to increased resistance to polymyxin B that required both PmrA and QseB. Similarly, pretreatment ...

Many women wonder how does sex cause a kidney infection? According to recent studies, women have a higher risk for developing a kidney infection if they have intercourse three or more times per week or if they use spermicides. According to this study, if a woman suffers from diabetes, or has a history of urinary tract infections or urinary incontinence, sex has a higher chance of causing a kidney infection. Although kidney infections are very common, the link between sex and kidney infections in women is an apart cause behind many of these kidney infections. During a recent study involving 240 women between the age of 18 to 49, it was apparent that sex does cause a kidney infection in some women with a high risk medical history. It appears sex can cause a kidney infection in women who take part in frequent episodes of sexual intercourse, more than three times per week. Frequent sexual intercourse appears to cause a kidney infection 5 times more likely than in women who do not have frequent ...
The ability to inhabit the different niches during an ascending urinary tract infection and cause particular pathologies at each site resides largely in the island genes specific to uropathogenic E. coli. The CFT073 genome sequence has revealed many possible factors that may contribute to colonization of the urinary tract tissues and the disease. The most important examples are mentioned here.. Surface structures known as fimbriae or pili mediate specificity for and attachment to host cells, an essential event for host colonization. We found genes encoding 12 distinct, putative fimbriae in the genome of CFT073, 10 fimbriae of the chaperone-usher family, and two type IV pili. Two pap operons (pylonephritis-associated pilus) encode P fimbriae with PapGII adhesins (17), located in islands at pheV and pheU. These are specific to uropathogens but are not the sole adhesins in CFT073 that are important for virulence. The foc operon encoding F1C fimbria and a chaperone-usher family operon with two ...

The very early inflammatory signaling events triggered in the bladder immediately following colonization with UPEC define the cascade of events that culminate in UTI disease or resolution of infection. Recently, innate resistance to UPEC UTI was demonstrated in the context of pathogen-specific signaling in murine pyelonephritis (55), and the danger-associated molecular pattern S100A8/A9 was shown to be unnecessary for effective host defense against UTI (56). The overall innate response of bladder in UPEC cystitis in the murine UTI model, however, remains largely uncharacterized. In this study, we provide a detailed genome-wide microarray analysis of whole bladder to UPEC UTI in mice using large group sizes and a nonpooled sampling approach for increased statistical power to offer a revealing new perspective on the innate response to infection. Our approach has uncovered a broad range of host factors not previously known to regulate innate defense to bacterial UTI. Several genes identified in ...

There are many different bacterial infections in the world that patients are suffering from and research teams are trying to find suitable ways to prevent and treat them. Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are most important infections in the world , and they are more common among women because vaginal cavity is near to urethral opening. The aim of this study is cloning of synthetic gene include antigens against UTIs in pET28a+ vector. Antibiotic resistant has been increasing because of antibiotic overuse recently, so It shows the necessity of developing a vaccine against these infections. There for, it will be imperative to develop a vaccine instead of antibiotics. This infection causes by many organisms, most important of which are Uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC), Proteus mirabilis and Klebsiella pneumoniae Uropathogenic Escherichia .coli is the most important microorganism that causes these infections more than other bacteria, so in developing a vaccine it is the most important one, that have to
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are caused by uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) strains. In contrast to many enteric E. coli pathogroups, no genetic signature has been identified for UPEC strains. We conducted a high-resolution comparative genomic study using E. coli isolates collected from the urine of women suffering from frequent recurrent UTIs. These isolates were genetically diverse and varied in their urovirulence, that is, their ability to infect the bladder in a mouse model of cystitis. We found no set of genes, including previously defined putative urovirulence factors (PUFs), that were predictive of urovirulence. In addition, in some patients, the E. coli strain causing a recurrent UTI had fewer PUFs than the supplanted strain. In competitive experimental infections in mice, the supplanting strain was more efficient at colonizing the mouse bladder than the supplanted strain. Despite the lack of a clear genomic signature for urovirulence, comparative transcriptomic and phenotypic ...
Uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) is the leading cause of community-acquired urinary tract infections (UTIs). Over 100 million UTIs occur annually throughout the world, including more than 7 million cases in U.S. adolescents and adults. UTIs in younger children are associated with greater risk of morbidity and mortality than in older children and adults. During UTI, UPEC exists in both intracellular and extracellular spaces. Infection is initiated by adherence to the apical bladder epithelium and then invading this layer of cells. Within the bladder epithelium, UPEC typically reproduces in a biofilm-like state composed of intracellular bacterial communities (IBC). After maturation of IBCs, UPEC disperses away from the IBC and exits the infected cells. Extracellular UPEC must then re-adhere, initiating the invasion and intracellular propagation phases again. Bacterial-epithelial interactions incite a strong inflammatory response through which the UPEC must persist. One persistence factor is the K
By combining intravital multiphoton microscopy and bacterial genetics we have developed a technique enabling real-time imaging of bacterial proliferation and tissue responses in a live animal. Spatial and temporal control of the infection process was achieved by microinjecting GFP+-expressing uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) into tubules of exteriorized kidneys in live rats. GFP+ was introduced in the clinical UPEC strain CFT073 as a single-copy chromosomal gene fusion. Within hours, bacterial colonization was accompanied by marked ischaemic effects, perivascular leakage, loss of tubular integrity and localized recruitment of immune cells. The pathophysiology was altered in response to an isogenic bacterial strain lacking the exotoxin haemolysin, revealing the subtle and temporal roles of bacterial virulence factors in vivo. Microdissection and RNA extraction of the injected nephron allowed molecular analysis of prokaryotic and eukaryotic gene expression. The techniques described here can ...
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common infections, with millions of people affected every year. Besides women, who bear a risk of 40 - 50% to experience at least one symptomatic UTI episode during a life-time, patients with diabetes, spinal cord injuries, and suppressed immune system are particularly at risk. Without treatment UTI may lead to bladder infection (cystitis) and, in a later infection state, to kidney infection (pyelonephritis). The initial and most fundamental step in the pathogenesis of UTIs is the type 1 pili-dependent adhesion of uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) to ?-mannoside-containing glycoprotein receptors on the surface of uroepithelial cells, such as uroplakin Ia (UPIa). The bacterial adhesion is mediated by the lectin FimH, localized at the tip of type 1 pili, which recognizes mono- and oligomannosides. The adhesion triggers the bacterial cell invasion, resulting in the development of an infection. FimH antagonists such as alpha-D-mannopyranosides ...
Among common infections, urinary tract infections (UTI) are the most frequently diagnosed urologic disease. The majority of UTIs are caused by uropathogenic Escherichia coli. The primary niche occupied by E. coli is the lower intestinal tract of mammals, where it resides as a beneficial component of the commensal microbiota. Although it is well-known that E. coli resides in the human intestine as a harmless commensal, specific strains or pathotypes have the potential to cause a wide spectrum of intestinal and diarrheal diseases. In contrast, extraintestinal E. coli pathotypes reside harmlessly in the human intestinal microenvironment but, upon access to sites outside of the intestine, become a major cause of human morbidity and mortality as a consequence of invasive UTI (pyelonephritis, bacteremia, or septicemia). Thus, extraintestinal pathotypes like uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) possess an enhanced ability to cause infection outside of the intestinal tract and colonize the urinary tract, the
In a study of women with kidney infections, one week of treatment with the antibiotic ciprofloxacin was as effective as two weeks of treatment. These results were published in The Lancet.. A kidney infection-also referred to as pyelonephritis-is a urinary tract infection that has reached one or both kidneys. It is less common than infections of the bladder and urethra, but can also be much more serious. A severe or untreated kidney infection can cause kidney damage and other serious problems. Factors that increase the likelihood of a kidney infection include pregnancy, diabetes, and kidney stones or other causes of urinary obstruction.. Kidney infections are usually treated with antibiotics, but the optimal duration of treatment remains uncertain. Treating patients for a shorter period of time could reduce the occurrence of antibiotic resistance, but is only an option if it effectively treats the infection.. One week of ciprofloxacin has previously been shown to be effective for the treatment of ...

In this study we examined the relative importance of neutrophil- and epithelial-specific mCXCR2 expression for bacterial clearance in bone marrow chimeric mice infected with uropathogenic Escherichia coli. Mice expressing mCXCR2 on their neutrophils responded rapidly to experimental urinary tract infection, clearing the infection from the kidneys. Mice lacking epithelial mCXCR2, however, showed delayed exit of neutrophils from the tissues. Mice lacking neutrophil mCXCR2 and mice with no mCXCR2 had no neutrophil recruitment and bacterial clearance. Mice expressing mCXCR2 only in their epithelial cells had a transient epithelial chemokine response; however, neutrophil recruitment was inhibited and ...

The study of adhesins as a point of exploitation for vaccines comes from early studies which indicated that an important component of protective immunity against certain bacteria came from an ability to prevent adhesin binding.[6] Additionally, Adhesins are attractive vaccine candidates because they are often essential to infection and are surface-located, making them readily accessible to antibodies.. The effectiveness of anti-adhesin antibodies is illustrated by studies with FimH, the adhesin of uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC).Work with E. coli stems from observations of human acquired immunity. Children in third world countries may suffer from several episodes of E. coli associated diarrhea during the first three years of life. If the child survives this initial period of susceptibility, infection rates typically drop substantially. Field studies show that this acquired immunity is directed primarily against bacterial adhesins.[2]. Recent studies from Worchester Polytechnic institute ...
Staphylococcus saprophyticus is an important cause of urinary tract infection (UTI), particularly among young women, and is second only to uropathogenic Escherichia coli as the most frequent cause of UTI. The molecular mechanisms of urinary tract colonization by S. saprophyticus remain poorly understood. We have identified a novel 6.84 kb plasmid-located adhesin-encoding gene in S. saprophyticus strain MS1146 which we have termed uro-adherence factor B (uafB). UafB is a glycosylated serine-rich repeat protein that is expressed on the surface of S. saprophyticus MS1146. UafB also functions as a major cell surface hydrophobicity factor. To characterize the role of UafB we generated an isogenic uafB mutant in S. saprophyticus MS1146 by interruption with a group II intron. The uafB mutant had a significantly reduced ability to bind to fibronectin and fibrinogen. Furthermore, we show that a recombinant protein containing the putative binding domain of UafB binds specifically to fibronectin and ...

Gentamicin is a widely used antibiotic for the treatment of adverse urinary tract infections (UTI), which in turn causes nephrotoxicity to uroepithelial cells and hence an alternative safe herbal remedy is much desired to compensate these toxic effects. The bacterial adhesion to the uroepithelial cells is the primary step in UTI and it induces various immunogenic reactions leading to the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are detrimental to the cells survival. Inhibition of bacterial adherence to urinary tract epithelial cells has been assumed to account for the beneficial action ascribed to cystone (an ayurvedic polyherbal formulation) in the prevention of UTI. In this study, we have examined the effect of cystone on the adherence of pathogenic [2-(14)C]-acetate labeled Escherichia coli (MTCC-729) to rat proximal renal tubular cells (NRK-52E cells). Further, the antioxidant property of cystone was studied using hydrogen peroxide (400 μM) as a pro-oxidant in NRK-52E cells. The results

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection caused by pathogenic organisms (for example, bacteria, fungi, or parasites) in any of the structures that comprise the urinary tract. However, this is the broad definition of urinary tract infections; many authors prefer to use more specific terms that localize the urinary tract infection to the major structural segment involved such as urethritis (urethral infection), cystitis (bladder infection), ureter infection, and pyelonephritis (kidney infection). Other structures that eventually connect to or share close anatomic proximity to the urinary tract (for example, prostate, epididymis, and vagina) are sometimes included in the discussion of UTIs because they may either cause or be caused by UTIs. Technically, they are not UTIs and will be only briefly mentioned in this article ...

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a bacterial infection that affects any part of the urinary tract. Although urine contains a variety of fluids, salts, and waste products, it usually does not have bacteria in it. When bacteria get into the bladder or kidney and multiply in the urine, they cause a UTI. The most common type of UTI is a bladder infection which is also often called cystitis. Another kind of UTI is a kidney infection, known as pyelonephritis, and is much more serious. Although they cause discomfort, urinary tract infections can usually be quickly and easily treated when the patient sees a doctor promptly ...
Home remedy and other supplementation food can only make an acidic urine (most of us are acidic!) alkaline. When we have bladder inflammation, acidic urine will create irritation which gave rise to frequent urination and burning sensation at our urethra. So as you can imagine, make urine alkaline can minimise the symptoms but NOT killing the bacteria. In that respect, i would recommend all to visit a physician or an MD for treatment. Kidney infection usually occurred after the infection has gone up from bladder to the kidney, which means it has deteriorated. It causes Pyelonephritis and potentially ruin the whole kidney. Worst still, it can cause sepsis and potentiallly fatal ...

Furthermore, the molecular study of the following extraintestinal pathogenic E. coli-associated virulence factor (VF) genes was performed by PCR: i) adhesins: type 1 fimbria (fimH), S fimbria (sfaD/E), P fimbria (papC and papG alleles) and afimbrial adhesin (afaB/C); ii) capsule K1/K5 (kpsMTII); iii) siderophores: aerobactin (iucD), yersiniabactin (fyuA) and salmochelin (iroN); iv) toxins hemolysin (hlyA), necrotizing cytotoxic factor type 1 (cnf1) and secreted autotransporter toxin (sat); v) miscellaneous: brain microvascular endothelial cells invasion (ibeA), serum resistance (traT), colicin V (cvaC) and specific uropathogenic protein (usp). Our results showed that isolates are able to invade Vero cells (96.6%), differing from previous research on uropathogenic E. coli ...
Since I was a teen up until quite recently, I suffered with constant bladder infections and UTIs. To the point that I had to have investigative surgery (a cystoscopy under general anesthesia) to shed light on why they were so frequent. They found I had interstitial cystitis where the inside walls of my bladder had become so red…
Bladder infection is mainly a kind of urinary tract infection which infects the lower portion of the urinary tract. These infections are found to be more common in women than men. Some of the major risk factors of this infection include sexual intercourse, family history and female anatomy. A person suffering from this infection feels a burning sensation while urinating and may also have to go for urination frequently. The process of urination can also be painful in some cases ...

The protein encoded by this gene is the most abundant protein in mammalian urine under physiological conditions. Its excretion in urine follows proteolytic cleavage of the ectodomain of its glycosyl phosphatidylinosital-anchored counterpart that is situated on the luminal cell surface of the loop of Henle. This protein may act as a constitutive inhibitor of calcium crystallization in renal fluids. Excretion of this protein in urine may provide defense against urinary tract infections caused by uropathogenic bacteria. Defects in this gene are associated with the renal disorders medullary cystic kidney disease-2 (MCKD2), glomerulocystic kidney disease with hyperuricemia and isosthenuria (GCKDHI), and familial juvenile hyperuricemic nephropathy (FJHN). Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013 ...
Short-term use of the antibiotic cefpodoxime for the treatment of women with uncomplicated cystitis (bladder infection) did not meet criteria for noninferiority for achieving clinical cure compared with ciprofloxacin, a drug in the fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics for which there have been concerns about overuse and a resulting increase in resistance rates, according to a study in the February 8 issue of JAMA. The criteria for noninferiority was if the efficacy of cefpodoxime had been shown to be within a pre-specified margin of 10 percent of the efficacy of ciprofloxacin.. Fluoroquinolones have high rates of efficacy and minimal adverse drug reactions when used in a 3-day regimen as recommended to treat uncomplicated cystitis. However, increasing rates of antimicrobial resistance among fluoroquinolones have been reported. To prevent further emergence of fluoroquinolone resistance, there are calls for restricting fluoroquinolones to those specific instances of uncomplicated cystitis when ...
Background: Urinary tract infection caused by Escherichia coli is a frequently observed condition both in humans and animals. Uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) has been shown to have a pathogenicity island that enables them to infect the urinary tract. Because there is little information about the presence of UPEC-associated virulent genes in animal isolates this work was carried out with the intent to enhance the understanding about the strains of E.coli that cause infections in animals. Results: We screened 21 E. coli strains isolated causing urinary tract infection in domestic animals. Primers were designed to amplify urinary infection-associated genes. Nine genes, papA, tcpC, fyuA, tpbA, Lma, hylA, picU, tonB, and flicC were then amplified and sequenced. Different from the human isolate CFT073, all the animals E. coli lack some of the pathogenesis-associated genes. Genes encoding for proteins used to scavenge iron appear not to be so necessary during animal infections as they are in human infection. In

Part One:. For those of us with autoimmune disease, bladder infections (cystitis) as well as kidney infections (pyelonephritis) can be frequent problems. They can be uncomfortable to totally miserable as well as inconvenient and life disrupting. Occasionally either one of these distressing conditions may be accompanied by pain and infection in the urethra, the exit point for urine. Anatomically, women are more prone to these infections than men. Its all in the design.. I battled urinary tract infections (UTIs) for many years. Long before I knew I had Relapsing Polychondritis, I had a tubal pregnancy which "blew up" one ovary and fallopian tube, causing trauma to the bladder. When I left the hospital I wore a foley catheter home and had it for ten days. I wasnt a nurse in those days and received no instruction about the care of that catheter except how to empty the bag. Little did I know that it provided a direct route into my urinary tract. The bacteria loved it, invited all their friends and ...
Frequent infections require doctors visit. Submitted by: Marc C. Gittelman, M.D.. Submitted on: July 5, 2005. Q: I almost always get urinary tract infections. Could there be something wrong?. A: Urinary tract infections (UTI) are most common in younger women and postmenopausal women, and an uncomplicated bladder infection once a year is no cause for alarm. When women begin to have more frequent infections a medical evaluation may be needed. For men, even one urinary tract infection should require a trip to your physician.. Signs of a urinary infection include burning during urination, severe frequency of urination, a sense of bladder pressure and the feeling that the bladder just wont empty completely. For some women these symptoms can be severe and even disabling, with severe cases causing blood in the urine and fever. A high fever and associated back pain is considered a medical emergency because there may be signs of a kidney infection.. Treatment of UTIs is quite simple. Your clinician is ...
Our results suggest that more than a third of women with UTI symptoms are willing to delay antibiotic treatment when asked by their GP. More than half of these women (28/51) will not have used antibiotics after one week, of whom more than 70% (20/28) will have improvement of their symptoms.. The proportion of women reporting the use of antibiotics was 10% lower in the group that had been asked to delay as compared to those that had not been asked. The true reduction may be somewhat higher, since in the group asked to delay 30 patients were analyzed as having used antibiotics because no follow-up data were available. However, it should be taken into account that not all baseline characteristics were similar between these two groups (in the group asked to delay, more women reported at least considerable pain and/or thought they had a UTI).. As far as we know, this is the first study that describes the proportion of women with UTI symptoms that are willing to delay antibiotic treatment. Our ...

The acute form is usually caused when bacteria causing cystitis spread up the ureters from the bladder (lower centre). It causes fever and back pain. Treatment is with antibiotic drugs. The chronic form usually starts in childhood, and may lead to permanent kidney damage. - Stock Image C022/1668
Understanding how quiescent organs can undergo rapid switching to a proliferative state in response to injury not only should aid in situations where promotion of regeneration is beneficial but also may hold clues to how corruption of this system may lead to cancer. The bladder is one such nearly quiescent organ that can regenerate in response to injury such as that incurred with bladder infections, which are particularly common in women. Shin et al. explored the bladders response to injury by treating mice either with a uropathogenic strain of Escherichia coli or the chemical protamine sulfate and found that the cells of the stromal and epithelial (urothelial) layers underwent rapid proliferation in response to infection, whereas chemical injury triggered proliferation of the urothelial layer only. Sonic hedgehog (Shh) was detected in the basal cells of the urothelial layer. Activity of the Hedgehog pathway occurred in the stromal layer and was detected with a Gli-LacZ reporter (Gli1 is both a ...

This project is the clinical project of a Specialized Center of Research (SCOR) proposal which is designed to further our understanding of urinary tract infection (UTI) in women. Acute uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTIs) occur in an estimated 7-11 million women each year, and the annual costs of caring for these women are thought to approach $1.6 billion. Approximately 20-30% of women suffer from frequent recurrent infections. UTIs in young women result in substantial symptoms, time lost from work, and medical costs. An improved understanding of the mechanisms underlying UTIs could result in new approaches to their prevention and reduced numbers of women with infections and the amount of antibiotics use.. In this project we seek a better understanding of the causes of UTI. Most experts believe that vaginal colonization with UTI-causing bacteria from the rectal flora precedes colonization of the urethra (the tube from the bladder for urination) and bladder and subsequent UTI, but the ...

In some cases, cloudy, bloody or foul-smelling urine, and maybe a delicate fever can accompany a UTI ...
Most non-elderly adult women only need 3 days of antibiotics. If the infection has spread to one of the kidneys, you may need hospitalization to receive hydration and antibiotics through a vein.. A chronic or recurrent UTI should be treated thoroughly because of the chance of kidney infection. Antibiotics may need to be given for a long period of time (as long as 6 months to 2 years), or stronger antibiotics may be needed than for single, uncomplicated episodes of cystitis.. Use of low-dose antibiotics on a daily basis may be recommended to prevent UTIs if you get frequent infections.. Phenazopyridine hydrochloride (pyridium) may be used to reduce the burning and urgency associated with cystitis. In addition, acidifying medications such as ascorbic acid may be recommended to decrease the concentration of bacteria in the urine.. If an anatomical abnormality is present, surgery to correct the problem may be recommended.. ...

Following successful treatment of a symptomatic UTI you may want to consider alternatives to help prevent recurrence of UTIs.. To prevent recurrent UTIs. Remember to drink plenty of water and empty your bladder fully each time you go to the toilet.. Antibiotics. A course of antibiotics will likely be prescribed by your doctor to treat the symptoms of a UTI. If you experience recurrent UTIs, your doctor may consider antibiotics to help prevent the next UTI. There are concerns about frequent use of antibiotics [1], so alternatives for preventing recurrent UTIs are becoming important.. Cranberry and natural remedies. There is some research that shows cranberry‐containing products may help to prevent UTIs by lowering the ability of E. coli to stick to the urinary tract lining. However, only a small potential benefit has been demonstrated and the current clinical trial evidence does not support the use of cranberry‐containing products for the prevention of UTIs [2].

Uncomplicated lower urinary tract infections (LUTIs) are very common (i.e. 10% of all women has it each year and 60% of all women experience at least one episode during their lifetime) [1], and we presume there are about 200,000 patients treated for this in Denmark annually. Most patients are otherwise healthy women, and these infections are often the main reason of exposure to antibiotics for these patients [2]. Uncomplicated LUTIs are primarily community acquired and diagnosed as well as treated in primary care. The most common pathogen is Escherichia coli [2, 3], and diagnosis can be made clinical with 90% positive predictive value (i.e. new onset dysuria, pollakisuria and urgency, together with absence of vaginal discharge or pain) [4].. In Denmark, the current clinical practice recommendations is pivmecillinam (i.e., 400 mg t.i.d for 3 days) as the first line drug against uncomplicated LUTIs [5]. Pivmecillinam is a prodrug of mecillinam. It is an amidinopenicillin, selective and highly ...
Cathelicidin (LL-37) and human β-defensin 1 (hBD-1) are important components of the innate defense in the urinary tract. The aim of this study was to characterize whether these peptides are important for developing uncomplicated Escherichia coli urinary tract infections (UTIs). This was investigated by comparing urinary peptide levels of UTI patients during and after infection to those of controls, as well as characterizing the fecal flora of participants with respect to susceptibility to LL-37 and in vivo virulence. Forty-seven UTI patients and 50 controls who had never had a UTI were included. Participants were otherwise healthy, premenopausal, adult women. LL-37 MIC levels were compared for fecal E. coli clones from patients and controls and were also compared based on phylotypes (A, B1, B2, and D). In vivo virulence was investigated in the murine UTI model by use of selected fecal isolates from patients and controls. On average, UTI patients had significantly more LL-37 in urine during ...
Is it really a urinary tract infection? Differential diagnoses include common genital infections (such as sexually transmitted infections and Candida vulvovaginitis), non-infective cystitis (caused by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and other drugs), and urethral syndrome (a complex of symptoms that indicate a urinary tract infection but without an underlying infection).. Type of urinary tract infection Symptoms that indicate a lower urinary tract infection are discomfort on urination, increased frequency of urination, urgency, and a change in the smell of the urine. Symptoms that indicate an upper urinary tract infection are a high temperature, pain in the loin, nausea, vomiting, and rigors.. History When was the last infection? Recurrent episodes of urinary tract infection may be a relapse of illness (defined as recurrence of infection by the same species within two weeks) or reinfection..

The urinary system consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. A urinary tract infection can affect one or more parts or the entire urinary tract. Urinary tract infections are much more common in women than in men, affecting about 40% of women and 12% of men at some point during their lives. 1-2% of children also experience urinary tract infections.. Urinary tract infections occur when bacteria get into the normally sterile urine and begin to grow. The most common bacteria that causes urinary tract infections is E. coli, which live in the bowel and around the anus. Poor hygiene and sexual intercourse can allow these bacteria to reach the opening of the urethra and travel up the urethra to the bladder, where they can grow and cause an infection. If the infection is not treated or resolved, the bacteria can continue to travel up the urinary tract, reaching the ureters and the kidneys. Kidney infections can become quite serious, causing permanent damage if left untreated.. The symptoms ...

... ; Although urinary tract infections and other related urinary tract infections are more common in women, can occur in men as well (though very rare). A urine infection is typically an IU (UTI) that starts in the lower urinary tract (including the urethra and bladder) and is likely to spread to the ureters and kidneys, and without timely intervention. Men who suffer from urinary infections should ensure you get the condition treated as soon as possible to avoid secondary infections. Failure to do so may aggravate the infection and lead to more serious better issues. the health-related stop a urinary tract infection is when it is at its initial stage and is limited to urethra and bladder. and this can be achieved by opting for certain home remedies to stop the infection and its symptoms until further medical help is available.

Image source: www.karljones.com Image source: www.jcu.edu.au. Existing Research Studies. Clinical Applications of Cranberry in Urinary Tract Infections (Stephanie Ross). Ross states that the historical claim asserting that cranberries are useful as a remedy for problems affecting the urinary tract has been validated through current scientific research. This current research, [according to Ross], indicates that drinking cranberry juice in therapeutic amounts, on a regular basis, appears to reduce the risk of [urinary tract infections], and may help in the treatment of existing [urinary tract infections] (Ross, 2006). In order to prevent the occurrence of urinary tract infections and treat existing urinary tract infections, Ross proclaims that 4 to 32 fluid ounces and 16 to 32 fluid ounces of cranberry juice or approximately 18 fluid ounces of unsweetened cranberry juice (respectively) should be consumed daily (Ross, 2006).. The effectiveness of cranberry juice, according to Ross, lies in its ...
A catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is an infection of the urinary system. CAUTI is caused by germs that enter the urinary tract when a urinary catheter is used. This is a tube thats placed into the bladder to drain urine.
Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) are the commonest nosocomial infections worldwide. While they are often asymptomatic and frequently cost less than nosocomial surgical site infections or nosocomial pneumonia, they are major reservoirs of antimicrobial resistant pathogens. Numerous strategies have been devised in an attempt to reduce the incidence of CAUTI but few have proven effective. Novel technologies such as the potential use of antiseptic or antimicrobial coatings on catheters hold promise for possibly reducing these infections in the fight against antimicrobial resistance. © 2004 Elsevier B.V. and the International Society of Chemotherapy.

Urinary tract infections are the second infectious trouble which affects pets just after dermatologic affections. It is considered that 15% dogs and 1 to 3% cats have at least one urinary infection in their life time.. Two types of errors may be made in establishing the diagnosis: false positive animals diagnosed from clinical findings only and from a wrong interpretation of biological findings, and non identified infections due to the lack of systematic urinalysis.. Diagnostic steps. Urinalysis. Urinalysis is to be performed in order to analyze the physical, chemical, cytologic and microbiological features of urine. This includes several steps such as collecting urine, examining it, realizing a reagent strip, assessing urine specific gravity by refractometry, performing a nitric acid test to assess proteinuria, realizing urine sediment..

Extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae are increasingly reported as pathogens in urinary tract infections (UTIs). Infections due to ESBLs are worrisome as they are resistant to multiple antibiotics and can be difficult to treat. In Sri Lanka, the clinical and molecular epidemiology of ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae causing UTIs has not been well described. We conducted prospective, laboratory-based surveillance in a tertiary care hospital in southern Sri Lanka and enrolled patients %u22651 year with clinically relevant UTI due to ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae. Isolate identity, antimicrobial drug susceptibility, and ESBL production were detected and presence of ß-lactamase genes was identified by polymerase chain reaction. In this study, the majority of UTIs caused by ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae were acquired in the community and due to organisms carrying the group 1 CTX-M ß-lactamase. Further epidemiologic studies of ESBL-producing infections in ...
At the Johns Hopkins Hospital, we perform CAUTI surveillance in all of our adult intensive care units (ICUs).

Device-associated infections (i.e., central line-associated bloodstream infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, and ventilator-associated pneumonia) accounted for about one-quarter (26%) of all HAIs in 2011.. It is important to understand the different types of HAIs and how they are spread to be able to effectively prevent them.. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) occur when germs enter the urinary system and affect the bladder (which stores the urine) and/or the kidneys (which filter the blood to make urine). These infections are often associated with the use of a catheter, which is a tube placed into the bladder to drain urine.. Surgical site infections (SSIs) occur after surgery in the part of the body where the surgery took place. These infections may involve only the skin, or may be more serious and involve tissue under the skin, organs, or implanted material. SSIs sometimes take days or months after surgery to develop.. Respiratory or lung infections (such as pneumonia) can ...
I am soooo worried about Lucy! About a month ago, she developed a urinary tract infection. Our vet took a urine sample and prescribed an antibiotic. She said if the infection came back she would have to take an x-ray. The urine test results seemed to be ok...no crystals in the urine. Early this morning after Lucy did #1 and #2, I noticed that she was straining again and spotting a bit on the floor. This is exactly how it happened the last time...and also in the early morning. I am going to

To the Editor: A 64-year-old man was admitted to the urology department of Cochin Hospital in Paris, France, for acute urinary retention. He had a history of recurrent urolithiasis and undocumented urinary tract symptoms. At admission, a urethral catheter was inserted, and a plain radiograph showed 2 bladder stones and milk of calcium calcifications. Three days later, he underwent extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy treatment, and empiric antimicrobial drug therapy with intravenous ceftriaxone, 1 g/day for 3 days, was administered. Three consecutive urinalyses showed a pH of 9, crystals of struvite, hematuria, and 105 leukocytes/mL. Gram-positive rods with rounded ends and nonparallel sides, arranged in palisades or in V shapes, were observed, which suggested the presence of corynebacteria. Urine cultures were positive and yielded a pure culture of 105 CFU/mL of Corynebacterium spp.. The isolated strain showed slight growth after 24 or 48 h of incubation on horse blood agar medium but abundant ...

The purpose of this study is presenting a method to predict the presence of an open urinary tract and the position of the opening in laparoscopic partial nephrectomy from three dimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT) images by using novel image segmentation and visualization techniques. From CT images of patients who underwent laparoscopic partial nephrectomy, 3D regions of the kidney, urinary tract, and tumor were segmented. For each patient, multiple virtual resection planes of the kidney with different surgical margins (1 mm to 5 mm, every 1 mm) were generated and the presence of an open urinary tract and the position of the opening were predicted from the images. We compared the predictions with actual operations in 5 cases by using recorded video of the operations and operative notes. In terms of the presence of an open urinary tract, agreement of the predictions and the intraoperative results was obtained in all patients. The expected positions of the openings were close to those in the actual

INTRODUCTION. Ocult ileovesical fistulae lead to a chronic inflammatory process in the bladder mucosa [1]. This can cause squamous cell metaplasia and increased susceptibility to developing squamous cell carcinoma of the bladder, which is rare when compared with transitional cell carcinoma. Therefore, the occurrence of such a rare bladder carcinoma secondary to an occult fistula is uncommon.. CASE REPORT. A 61-year-old male with chronic kidney disease and hypertension presented with anemia and weight loss. A computed tomography (CT) scan showed abnormal bladder appearances that were suggestive of infective or inflammatory pathology with no other pathology. Subsequent rigid cystoscopy and biopsy showed only chronic inflammation and squamous metaplasia. His symptoms subsided after these investigations.. The patient returned 1 year later with hematuria and recurrent urinary tract infections. An ultrasound scan revealed a grossly thickened anterior bladder wall. Flexible cystoscopy showed a solid ...
Mean+ SD follow up is 126 + 54.6 months. The repair resulted in hypospadias in 23/35 boys (65%), penoscrotal in 14, midpenile in 4 and distal penile in 4. Twelve (52%) were managed by duplay urethroplasty. Mustarde repair was done in 6 cases and Ducketts repair in 5. Following catheter removal, 14/43 patients (32%) had suprapubic urine leakage that ceased spontaneously in 7 and required surgical intervention in the remaining patients. Early postoperative hydronephrosis (HN) was present in 10/43(23.3 %), low grade in 7 and high grade in 3.Last follow up RBUS showed resolution of HN in seven patients and persistence of low grade HN in 3. Eleven patients (25.6%) had febrile urinary tract infection that was treated conservatively. Early postoperative vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) was present in 33 children (76%), low grade in 27(81%). Last follow up VCUG revealed resolution in 16 cases (48%) and persistence of low grade VUR in 17(52%). Continence was achieved in 11 children (25.5%), 4 girls and 7 ...
Spinal intramedullary epidermoid cyst is a rare condition. Recurrent epidermoid cyst in the spine cord is known to occur. The authors describe a case of recurrent conus medullaris epidermoid cyst in a 24-year-old female. She initially presented at 7 years of age with bladder disturbance in the form of diurnal enuresis and recurrent urinary tract infection. MRI lumbar spine revealed a 4 cm conus medullaris epidermoid cyst. Since the initial presentation, the cyst had recurred seven times in the same location and she underwent surgical intervention in the form of exploration and debulking. This benign condition, owing to its anatomical location, has posed a surgical and overall management challenge. This occurrence is better managed in a tertiary-care centre requiring multi-disciplinary treatment approach. ...
For urinalysis, midstream collection is recommended (1)(2)(3). Health-associated reference limits for leukocyte and erythrocyte counts in female urine are important for detecting hematuria, pyuria, and urinary tract infection (3). To understand the effects of urinary collection and the menstrual cycle on urinalysis, we examined first-stream and midstream urine samples from healthy female students with use of an automated dipstick reader and the fully automated urine cell analyzer, UF-100.. Specimens were obtained from 64 healthy female students (age range, 18-20 years) at the College of Medical Technology. All were asymptomatic and had no extant urologic disease. They were instructed to collect only first and midstream urine samples in sterile containers at the same time and not to wipe or spread the labia. The volume of the first urine was measured, and the specimen was analyzed within 2 h. The students provided written, informed consent to participate in the study as well as information about ...
Berries - Many types of berries are rich in antioxidants, such as blueberries. In addition to being filled with beneficial antioxidants, berries also have flavonols. These flavonols are used naturally by the plant in order to fight off bacterial infections in the plant itself, and it seems to have the same effect on humans.. This can help prevent infections from forming in the urinary tract. Perhaps snacking on strawberries, blackberries, blueberries or raspberries isnt your thing. Instead, supplement with juice products such as cranberry juice. This still allows you to enjoy all of the benefits that berries can give you and your urinary tract.. Garlic - Garlic is healthy for your urinary tract because studies have shown that it may actually help prevent bladder cancer from forming in the future. Data from these studies have shown that garlic not only fights off and kills cancer cells in the bladder, but it also prevents those cancerous cells from metastasizing in the organ. In addition to ...
Adult nondiarrhea hemolytic uremic syndrome associated with Shiga toxin Escherichia coli O157:H7 bacteremia and urinary tract infection. Chiurchiu C, Firrincieli A, Santostefano M, Fusaroli M, Remuzzi G, Ruggenenti P. American Journal of Kidney Diseases 2003;41(1):E4.. ABSTRACT:. About 15% of children with Shiga toxin (Stx) producing Escherichia coli (STEC) primarily of serotype O157:H7, gastrointestinal infection, and watery or bloody diarrhea, may develop hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). Usually diarrhea-associated (D+) HUS is not complicated by bacteremia and patients recover spontaneously without antibiotic treatment. This paper reports on an adult case of a STEC O157:H7 urinary tract infection complicated by bacteremia and HUS that was not preceded by diarrhea (D- HUS). A 25-year-old woman was hospitalized with fever, vomiting, and gross hematuria. At admission she reported decreased urine output, reduced vision in the left eye, and epistaxis. Her temperature and pulse rate were increased ...

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most common inherited cause of kidney disease. Enlarging cysts within the kidneys are the clinical hallmark of the disease. Renal manifestations include varying degrees of kidney injury, urinary tract infections, kidney stones, and hematuria. Extrarenal manifestations can include pain, hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy, hepatic cysts, intracranial aneurysm, diverticulosis, and abdominal and inguinal hernias. The progression of ADPKD cannot be reversed with current treatment modalities; therefore, therapies target the resulting clinical manifestations. Early detection and management of hypertension are important to delay the progression of renal dysfunction and development of cardiovascular complications. Pain management includes evaluation of concomitant illnesses, use of analgesics, and adjuvant therapy. Fluoroquinolones may be the most useful class of antibiotics for the treatment of urinary tract infections because of their

Properly performed newborn circumcision prevents phimosis, paraphimosis, and balanoposthitis and has been shown to decrease the incidence of cancer of the penis among US men. It may result in a decreased incidence of urinary tract infection. However, in the absence of well-designed prospective studies, conclusions regarding the relationship of urinary tract infection to circumcision are tentative. An increased incidence of cancer of the cervix has been found in sexual partners of uncircumcised men infected with human papillomavirus. Evidence concerning the association of sexually transmitted diseases and circumcision is conflicting.. Newborn circumcision is a rapid and generally safe procedure when performed by an experienced operator. It is an elective procedure to be performed only if an infant is stable and healthy. Infants respond to the procedure with transient behavioral and physiologic changes.. Local anesthesia (dorsal penile nerve block) may reduce the observed physiologic response to ...

To date, two forms of microsatellite instability (MSI) have been described in human cancer. MSI typical of hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer (HNPCC), is due to deficient DNA mismatch repair (MMR) and is defined with mono- and dinucleotide repeat microsatellites. A second variety of instability is best seen at selective tetranucleotide repeats (EMAST; elevated microsatellite alterations at select tetranucleotides). While MSI occurs infrequently in bladder cancers, EMAST is common. Sporadic tumours with the largest proportion showing MSI are those found most frequently in HNPCC kindreds. While bladder cancer is not frequently seen in HNPCC, upper urinary tract tumours (UTTs) are. Having previously found a low frequency of MSI in bladder cancer, we sought to determine the relative levels of MSI and EMAST in transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the upper and lower urinary tracts. Microsatellite analysis was performed at 10 mono- and dinucleotide and eight tetranucleotide loci, in 89 bladder and 71 UTT

Abstract To gain better understanding of the natural history of Schistosoma haematobium associated disease, age- and intensity-related urinary tract morbidity were assessed in a cross-sectional study of Kilole (population 719) in Coast Province, Kenya. Overall prevalence of infection was 65% (39% light, 16% moderate, 9% heavy). Infection prevalence and mean intensity of infection were highest in the 5-14-year-old bracket for both sexes. Although significant intensity-associated increases in hematuria prevalence were noted for both children and adults in all infection categories, hematuria was more common in those < 15 years of age. Children had a significant increase in the prevalence of dysuria at higher levels of infection, whereas adults did not. Radiographic study of a 1:9 random sample, stratified for age, revealed a greater prevalence of urinary tract granulomas in those < 15 years. Subjects > 15 years of age had a greater frequency of hydronephrosis. Hydronephrosis, hydroureter, and
Ciprofloxacin is used to treat a wide variety of infections, including infections of bones and joints, endocarditis, gastroenteritis, malignant otitis externa, respiratory tract infections, cellulitis, urinary tract infections, prostatitis, anthrax, and chancroid.. Ciprofloxacin only treats bacterial infections; it does not treat viral infections such as the common cold. For certain uses including acute sinusitis, lower respiratory tract infections and uncomplicated gonorrhea, ciprofloxacin is not considered a first-line agent.. Ciprofloxacin occupies an important role in treatment guidelines issued by major medical societies for the treatment of serious infections, especially those likely to be caused by Gram-negative bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa. For example, ciprofloxacin in combination with metronidazole is one of several first-line antibiotic regimens recommended by the Infectious Diseases Society of America for the treatment of community-acquired abdominal infections in ...

The emergence of multidrug resistant bacteria world wide is a serious problem, and very few new drugs are under development. The selection of resistant bacteria is affected by factors such as mutation rate, biological fitness cost and the rate of fitness compensation. This thesis is focused on how mutation rate affects resistance to fluoroquinolones and on exploring a dosing strategy that might slow resistance development. In a set of urinary tract Escherichia coli isolates MIC values above the breakpoint for the fluoroquinolones norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin carried at least three resistance-associated mutations. In these isolates the number of resistance mutations correlated with the mutation rate. During step-wise selection for decreased susceptibility to fluoroquinolones, the accumulation of mutations in E. coli was associated with an increasing biological cost both in vitro and in vivo. However, in some lineages an additional selection step for resistance was associated with a partial ...

Convincing studies demonstrate significant protection during breastfeeding against diarrhoea, respiratory tract infections, otitis media, bacteraemia, bacterial meningitis, botulism, urinary tract infections and necrotizing enterocolitis. There is also good evidence for enhanced protection for years after the termination of breastfeeding against Haemophilus influenzae type b infections, otitis media, diarrhoea, respiratory tract infections and wheezing bronchitis. In some reports breastfeeding has also improved vaccine responses. Several studies show that milk may actively stimulate the immune system of the offspring via transfer of anti-idiotypic antibodies and lymphocytes. This may explain why breastfeeding diminishes the risk of developing coeliac disease. Some investigations suggest that there may also be a similar effect on allergic diseases and autoimmune diseases, as well as inflammatory bowel diseases and certain tumours. This needs to be confirmed.. ...

  • Localization of a domain in the FimH adhesin of Escherichia coli type 1 fimbriae capable of receptor recognition and use of a domain-specific antibody to confer protection against experimental urinary tract infection. (jci.org)
  • The FimH subunit of type 1-fimbriated Escherichia coli has been implicated as an important determinant of bacterial adherence and colonization of the urinary tract. (jci.org)
  • Here, we sought to localize the functionally important domain(s) within the FimH molecule and to determine if antibodies against this domain would block adherence of type 1-fimbriated E. coli to the bladder mucosa in situ and in vivo in an established mouse model of cystitis. (jci.org)
  • Next, we compared the ability of mice passively immunized intraperitoneally with antisera raised against residues 1-25 and 253-264 of FimH or 1-13 of FimA to resist bladder colonization in vivo after intravesicular challenge with type 1-fimbriated E. coli. (jci.org)
  • Only the antibody directed at the putative binding region of FimH (anti- s-FimH1-25) significantly reduced E. coli bladder infections in the experimental mouse model of urinary tract infections. (jci.org)
  • Here we report the crystal structure of the full-length FimD usher bound to the FimC-FimH chaperone-adhesin complex and that of the unbound form of the FimD translocation domain. (nature.com)
  • FimH adhesin of type 1 pili is assembled into a fibrillar tip structure in the Enterobacteriaceae. (nature.com)
  • The best characterized bacterial adhesin is the type 1 fimbrial FimH adhesin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although described as an afimbrial adhesin, we show that both AfaE-1 and EPEC Afa possess fine fibrillar structures. (asm.org)
  • Colanic acid of E. coli affects biofilm architecture but not the adhesion of bacteria to surfaces or to themselves ( 14 , 32 ). (asm.org)
  • Thus, UpaG is a novel trimeric AT adhesin from E. coli that mediates aggregation, biofilm formation, and adhesion to various ECM proteins. (edu.au)
  • Adhesins are cell-surface components or appendages of bacteria that facilitate adhesion or adherence to other cells or to surfaces, usually the host they are infecting or living in. (wikipedia.org)
  • This adhesin is responsible for D-mannose sensitive adhesion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Here, we show that AIDA possesses self-association characteristics and can mediate autoaggregation of E. coli cells. (forskningsdatabasen.dk)
  • Binding to HT-29 cells paralleled binding to colonic enterocytes for all adhesin specificities except CFA/I. The results suggest that Dr hemagglutinin, P-, type 1- and S-fimbrial adhesins mediate binding to both colonic and ileal enterocytes. (gu.se)
  • We investigated the intestinal adherence of E. coli with Dr hemagglutinin, S fimbriae, CFA/I or CFA/II, using freshly isolated ileal or colonic enterocytes and cells from the human colonic cell line HT-29. (gu.se)
  • To effectively achieve adherence to host surfaces, many bacteria produce multiple adherence factors called adhesins. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is the first characterization and demonstration of an Afa adhesin associated with EPEC. (asm.org)
  • Prevalence analysis revealed that upaG is strongly associated with E. coli strains from the B2 and D phylogenetic groups, while deletion of upaG had no significant effect on the ability of CFT073 to colonize the mouse urinary tract. (edu.au)
  • E. coli O55 is one of the most frequently isolated serogroups of EPEC implicated in infantile diarrhea ( 11 ). (asm.org)
  • In this study the development of a PCR-based technique for the rapid identification of the food-borne pathogens Salmonella and Escherichia coli was undertaken. (biomedsearch.com)
  • These specificities may contribute to the establishment of E. coli in the intestinal microflora, which precedes their spread to extra-intestinal sites. (gu.se)
