Antibody coated bacteria in urine of patients with recent spinal injury. (1/13)

Twenty patients with an acute spinal injury were prospectively studied to assess the clinical importance of antibody coated bacteria (ACB) in the urine and the association among the different bacterial species with a positive antibody coated bacteria test. Clinical urinary tract infection was associated with a positive ACB test on 45% of occasions. Three hundred and ninety nine urine samples containing 541 bacterial isolates were assessed for the presence of ACB; 13% were found to be positive and 87% negative for ACB; 67% of urines contained a single bacterial isolate. Pseudomonas aeruginosa was most commonly associated with clinical urinary tract infection, found in 25% of episodes, followed by Proteus mirabilis (17.5%), Klebsiella sp (12.5%), and Proteus morganii (10%). Providencia stuartii, however, was most commonly associated with a positive ACB test (found in 17%). Other bacteria associated with a positive ACB test included Klebsiella sp (14%), Acinetobacter sp (12.5%), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (12%), Citrobacter sp (11.5%). A positive ACB test is not to be expected from a patient with spinal injury who has a catheter in place, and the test may provide a useful guide to identify those patients with an invasive infection. It is doubtful that a decision to treat or not treat bacteriuria could rest on the identification of the bacterial species alone.  (+info)

Significance of urinary immunoglobulins in tests for antibody-coated bacteria. (2/13)

The relationship between urinary immunoglobulin levels and coating of a panel of bacteria by these immunoglobulins has been investigated. The results indicate that elevated urinary immunoglobulin levels are a distinct hazard in interpreting tests for antibody-coated bacteria as indicating upper or lower urinary tract infections.  (+info)

Correlation between uropathogenic properties of Escherichia coli from urinary tract infections and the antibody-coated bacteria test and comparison with faecal strains. (3/13)

Strains of Escherichia coli isolated from adult females with symptomatic urinary tract infection were found to possess the following properties significantly more frequently than faecal strains: (i) high K-antigen titre: (ii) haemolysin; (iii) type 1 pili; (iv) mannose-resistant haemagglutination; (v) fermentation of dulcitol and salicin; (vi) O serotype 2, 6 and 75; (vii) H serotype 1. E. coli isolated form urine specimens containing significant numbers of antibody-coated bacteria were richer in these seven properties than strains from urines without detectable antibody coated bacteria. The O and H serotypes of E. coli obtained from patients with urinary tract infection in two New Zealand cities were compared with those reported in the world literature and found to be similar.  (+info)

Comparison of reliability of tests to distinguish upper from lower urinary tract infection. (4/13)

The results of scintiphotography with gallium-67 (67Ga), renography with technetium-99m diethylene triamine penta-acetic acid, immunofluorescence of antibody coated bacteria, and determination of renal beta 2 microglobulin excretion were compared in 19 patients with upper and 15 patients with lower urinary tract infection. All patients with acute pyelonephritis showed an appreciable unilateral or bilateral uptake of 67Ga and an increased excretion of beta 2 microglobulin, whereas immunofluorescence of antibody coated bacteria yielded positive results in only 10. In patients with lower urinary tract infections excretion of beta 2 microglobulin and uptake of 67Ga were always normal, whereas immunofluorescence of antibody coated bacteria was positive in three cases. Scintiphotography with 67Ga and determination of renal beta 2 microglobulin excretion are currently the most reliable non-invasive methods of detecting acute pyelonephritis.  (+info)

Immunological characterization of renal glycosuria patients. (5/13)

We have evaluated the autoantibody pattern, the production of specific immunoglobulins against bacteria in the urinary tract and lymphocytes populations in peripheral blood of primary renal glycosuria patients. All the affected members present autoantibodies against various antigens. In nine patients immunofluorescence revealed antibody coated bacteria in urine specimens. Imbalances in lymphocytes subpopulations are also present, with a reduction of OKT8+ cells and an increase of B and natural killer cells. These results support previous observations about immunological abnormalities in these patients.  (+info)

Single-dose amoxicillin therapy of acute uncomplicated urinary tract infections in women. (6/13)

Of 210 women who were experiencing dysuria, frequent urination, pyuria, and significant bacteriuria and who were treated with a single 3-g dose of amoxicillin, 165 (79%) were cured of their original infections. Patients with infections that were negative by antibody-coated-bacteria assay were cured at a significantly higher rate than those with infections that were positive by antibody-coated-bacteria assay (90 versus 59%; P less than 0.001). Similarly, those with infections caused by amoxicillin-susceptible organisms were cured at a significantly higher rate than those with infections caused by resistant organisms (85 versus 50%; P less than 0.001). Of 27 patients who had infections caused by amoxicillin-susceptible organisms and who had relapses after single-dose therapy, 14 (52%) had relapses again after a conventional 10-day course of therapy, although all responded to a 6-week course. An additional 27 patients experiencing dysuria, frequent urination, and pyuria but who had a lower number of uropathogens in the urine (10(2) to 10(4.5)/ml of urine) were treated with single-dose therapy, with a 100% eradication of organisms and an 89% rate of symptomatic relief.  (+info)

Limitations of the direct immunofluorescence test for antibody-coated bacteria in determining the site of urinary tract infections in children. (7/13)

The results of the direct immunofluorescence test for antibody-coated bacteria to determine the site of a urinary tract infection do not always correlate with the clinical data. When this test was performed on urine specimens from 282 children with significant bacteriuria, false-negative and false-positive results were observed in 20% (19/94) and 52% (19/188) of the specimens. Contamination of the specimen during collection and the presence of Fc receptors (receptors for the crystallizable fragment of the immunoglobulin molecule) on the surface of some strains of Staphylococcus aureus yielded false-positive results, and stools and vaginal secretions were shown to be potential sources of antibody-coated bacteria. It is suggested that for children this test be run on urine collected by bladder puncture. The use of conjugated anti-IgG antiserum containing only F(ab')2 (the antigen-binding fragments of the IgG molecule) is also recommended to eliminate false-positive results due to the presence of Fc receptors on the bacterial surface.  (+info)

Diagnostic value and biological significance of antibody-coated bacteria in urine. (8/13)

The incidence of antibody-coated bacteria (ACB) in the urinary sediments as an indication of the site of urinary tract infections (UTI) was investigated in 103 adult subjects with persistent bacteriuria by means of a direct immunofluorescence technique.ACB were found in 49 of 58 (84.5%) subjects with long-standing upper urinary tract obstruction and in 5 of 45 (11.1%) with lower UTI; this difference was statistically significant (X(2) = 51.79; P<0.001). The group with upper UTI was further subdivided according to renal function (patients with renal insufficiency had both bilateral obstruction and bilateral renal damage); 21 positive results were obtained in 27 (77.8%) patients with normal renal function, whereas 28 positive cases were observed among 31 (90.3%) patients with chronic renal insufficiency. Thus the degree of renal involvement also seemed to influence the outcome of the test. Within the group of lower UTI, a higher rate of ;false-positive' results was obtained in 14 patients with symptomatic long-standing infection (21.4%) than in 31 subjects with asymptomatic bacteriuria (6.4%). The three major immunoglobulin classes and the secretory component were studied in 42 cases. Of these, 29 were found to be positive for ACB. The constant presence of IgA and secretory component on the surface of ACB suggests that the secretory immune system plays an important role in UTI.  (+info)

The modified immunoenzymatic method for detection of antibody coated bacteria (IP ACB) was compared with immunofluorescence technique (IF ACB) in the diagnosis of urinary tract infection. For the study 100 patients were employed with significant and insignificant bacteriuria. It was found that 81% of the results obtained by IP ACB and IF ACB were identical, however the immunoenzymatic method was more sensitive than immunofluorescence. Moreover, the IP ACB technique is simpler, less time consuming and may be performed by using the ordinary optic microscope.

The study of antibodies began in 1890 when Emil von Behring and Shibasaburo Kitasato described antibody activity against diphtheria and tetanus toxins. Behring and Kitasato put forward the theory of humoral immunity, proposing that a mediator in serum could react with a foreign antigen.[54][55] Their idea prompted Paul Ehrlich to propose the side chain theory for antibody and antigen interaction in 1897, when he hypothesized that receptors (described as side chains) on the surface of cells could bind specifically to toxins - in a lock-and-key interaction - and that this binding reaction was the trigger for the production of antibodies.[56] Other researchers believed that antibodies existed freely in the blood and, in 1904, Almroth Wright suggested that soluble antibodies coated bacteria to label them for phagocytosis and killing; a process that he named opsoninization.[57] In the 1920s, Michael Heidelberger and Oswald Avery observed that antigens could be precipitated by antibodies and went ...

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) documents thousands of cases of disease outbreak in pools and spas every year. Bacterial, viral, and Parasites can lead to hospitalization and in rare cases can cause death. Water is a breeding ground for bacteria and can support viruses and parasites long enough for them to enter your body through absorption, inhalation, and/or ingestion. The best way to combat these contaminants is monitoring water chemistry on a consistent basis and having sanitizer and sanitizing devices in place to destroy these hazards. Sanitizer is necessary for water maintenance but can be used in conjunction with mineral filters, ozone treatment, and ultra-violet (UV) treatment as an added layer of protection. For heavily used pool and spas, a bacteria test kit can be used that will inform you of any infestation in just 17 min.. There are a few different types of Bacteria found in pool and spas.

Urinary alkalisers are widely used in some countries for the symptomatic treatment of uncomplicated UTI, and they are recommended in some national formularies. However, there is a lack of empirical evidence to support their use for UTI and some healthcare guidelines advise against their use.OBJECTIVES: We aimed to look at the benefits and harms of the use of urinary alkalisers for the treatment of uncomplicated UTIs in adult women.SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Kidney and Transplant Specialised Register to 19 January 2016 through contact with the ...
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are more prevalent among women than among men (ratio of 20:1), probably secondary to an anatomically short urethra and its close proximity to the vagina and rectum. It is a significant health care problem affecting an estimated 10 % to 20 % of women during their lifetimes and accounting for approximately 5.2 million office visits per year. In the past 30 years, there has been significant development in our understanding of the pathogenesis and management of urinary tract infections. The prevalence of urinary tract infections increases with age. At 1 year, 1 % to 2% of female infants demonstrate bacteriuria. After 1 year of age, the infection decreases to approximately 1 % and remains low until puberty. Between ages 15 to 24, the prevalence of bacteriuria is about 2 % to 3 % and increases to about 15 % at the age 60, 20% after age 65, and 25 % to 50 % after age 80. Sexual activity and pregnancy are major factors in younger age groups, whereas pelvic relaxation, ...
