The stimulatory substances, including opsonized particles, immune complexes, and chemotactic factors, bind to specific cell-surface receptors on the neutrophil.
A soluble factor produced by MONOCYTES; MACROPHAGES, and other cells which activates T-lymphocytes and potentiates their response to mitogens or antigens. Interleukin-1 is a general term refers to either of the two distinct proteins, INTERLEUKIN-1ALPHA and INTERLEUKIN-1BETA. The biological effects of IL-1 include the ability to replace macrophage requirements for T-cell activation.
A family of intracellular signaling kinases that were identified by their ability to signal from the activated INTERLEUKIN-1 RECEPTORS. Signaling from these kinases involves their interaction with SIGNAL TRANSDUCING ADAPTOR PROTEINS such as MYELOID DIFFERENTIATION FACTOR 88 and TNF RECEPTOR-ASSOCIATED FACTOR 6.
A secreted protein that associates with TOLL-LIKE RECEPTOR 4 and is essential for receptor recognition of LIPOPOLYSACCHARIDES.
Physiological processes and properties of BACTERIA.
Generally refers to the digestive structures stretching from the MOUTH to ANUS, but does not include the accessory glandular organs (LIVER; BILIARY TRACT; PANCREAS).
RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.

Experimental production of infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis: comparison of serological and immunological responses using pili fractions of Moraxella bovis. (1/6004)

The effect of vaccinating cattle and mice on the development of keratoconjunctivitis was studied. Cattle were vaccinated with whole cells, disrupted cells and pili fractions of three strains of Moraxella bovis. Mice were vaccinated with pili fractions of three strains. The resistance of all vaccinated animals was challenged with virulent cultures of M. bovis. In an attempt to correlate the response seen after vaccination and challenge with a pili fraction of M. bovis, vaccinated cattle and mice were grouped on the basis of signs of disease manifested and compared on the basis of serological responses. Serum samples were tested for antibodies by a gel diffusion precipitin test. A greater number of the sera of resistant cattle had antibodies to the homologous pili antigen than those of vaccinated nonresistant cattle. Cattle vaccinated with disrupted cells were not resistant to infectious bovine kerato-conjuctivitis and their sera lacked antibodies against the pili antigens. Vaccinated mice were more resistant to infectious bovine kerato-conjuctivitis and their sera lacked antibodies against the pili antigens. Vaccinated mice were more resistant to challenge exposure by homologous than heterologous cultures. A greater number of the sera of resistant mice had antibodies to pili antigens than nonresistant mice.  (+info)

Clindamycin plus gentamicin as expectant therapy for presumed mixed infections. (2/6004)

The prevalence of obligate anaerobes was studied prospectively in 60 patients with severe sepsis of intra-abdominal, soft tissue, female genital or oropulmonary origin. In addition, the efficacy of clindamycin (for anaerobes) plus gentamicin (for aerobic bacteria, especially coliforms) as initial empiric therapy in these patients was evaluated. Among 54 patients with cultural proof of infection, anaerobic pathogens were recovered from 52%. Nineteen patients had bacteremia; Bacteroides fragilis and Klebsiella pneumoniae were the most prevalent pathogens, being isolated in five patients each. Infection was eradicated in 56 of the 60 patients (93%). Mortality related to sepsis was 7% in the entire group, 16% in patients with bacteremia and 2% in patients without bacteremia. Eighty-five percent of aerobic isolates tested were susceptible in vitro to either gentamicin or clindamycin; 97% of anaerobic isolates were inhibited by 5 mug/ml of clindamycin.  (+info)

Phenotype of mice and macrophages deficient in both phagocyte oxidase and inducible nitric oxide synthase. (3/6004)

The two genetically established antimicrobial mechanisms of macrophages are production of reactive oxygen intermediates by phagocyte oxidase (phox) and reactive nitrogen intermediates by inducible nitric oxide synthase (NOS2). Mice doubly deficient in both enzymes (gp91(phox-/-)/NOS2(-/-)) formed massive abscesses containing commensal organisms, mostly enteric bacteria, even when reared under specific pathogen-free conditions with antibiotics. Neither parental strain showed such infections. Thus, phox and NOS2 appear to compensate for each other's deficiency in providing resistance to indigenous bacteria, and no other pathway does so fully. Macrophages from gp91(phox-/-)/NOS2(-/-) mice could not kill virulent Listeria. Their killing of S. typhimurium, E. coli, and attenuated Listeria was markedly diminished but demonstrable, establishing the existence of a mechanism of macrophage antibacterial activity independent of phox and NOS2.  (+info)

Receptor clearance obscures the magnitude of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor responses in mice to endotoxin or local infections. (4/6004)

Marrow cells from mice lacking high-affinity receptors for granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF; betac-/- mice) were shown to bind and internalize much less GM-CSF than cells from normal (betac+/+) mice. betac-/- mice were used to determine the effect of negligible receptor-mediated clearance on detectible GM-CSF responses to the intravenous injection of endotoxin or the intraperitoneal injection of casein plus microorganisms. Unlike the minor serum GM-CSF responses to endotoxin seen in betac+/+ mice, serum GM-CSF levels rose 30-fold to 9 ng/mL in betac-/- mice even though loss of GM-CSF in the urine was greater than in betac+/+ mice. Organs from betac-/- and betac+/+ mice had a similar capacity to produce GM-CSF in vitro, as did peritoneal cells from both types of mice when challenged in vitro by casein. However, when casein was injected intraperitoneally, betac-/- mice developed higher and more sustained levels of GM-CSF than did betac+/+ mice. The data indicated that receptor-dependent removal of GM-CSF masks the magnitude of GM-CSF responses to endotoxin and local infections. Because of this phenomenon, serum GM-CSF concentrations can be a misleading index of the occurrence or nonoccurrence of GM-CSF responses to infections.  (+info)

In vivo activities of peptidic prodrugs of novel aminomethyl tetrahydrofuranyl-1 beta-methylcarbapenems. (5/6004)

A series of novel aminomethyl tetrahydrofuranyl (THF)-1 beta-methylcarbapenems which have excellent broad-spectrum antibacterial activities exhibit modest efficacies against acute lethal infections (3.8 mg/kg of body weight against Escherichia coli and 0.9 mg/kg against Staphylococcus aureus) in mice when they are administered orally. In an effort to improve the efficacies of orally administered drugs through enhanced absorption by making use of a peptide-mediated transport system, several different amino acids were added at the aminomethyl THF side chains of the carbapenem molecules. The resulting peptidic prodrugs with L-amino acids demonstrated improved efficacy after oral administration, while the D forms were less active than the parent molecules. After oral administration increased (3 to 10 times) efficacy was exhibited with the alanine-, valine-, isoleucine-, and phenylalanine-substituted prodrugs against acute lethal infections in mice. Median effective doses (ED50s) of < 1 mg/kg against infections caused by S. aureus, E. coli, Enterobacter cloacae, or penicillin-susceptible Streptococcus pneumoniae were obtained after the administration of single oral doses. Several of the peptidic prodrugs were efficacious against Morganella morganii, Serratia marcescens, penicillin-resistant S. pneumoniae, extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae, and E. coli infections, with ED50s of 1 to 14 mg/kg by oral administration compared with ED50s of 14 to > 32 mg/kg for the parent molecules. In general, the parent molecules demonstrated greater efficacy than the prodrugs against these same infections when the drugs were administered by the subcutaneous route. The parent molecule was detectable in the sera of mice after oral administration of the peptidic prodrugs.  (+info)

Temporal and multiple quantitative trait loci analyses of resistance to bacterial wilt in tomato permit the resolution of linked loci. (6/6004)

Ralstonia solanacearum is a soil-borne bacterium that causes the serious disease known as bacterial wilt in many plant species. In tomato, several QTL controlling resistance have been found, but in different studies, markers spanning a large region of chromosome 6 showed strong association with the resistance. By using two different approaches to analyze the data from a field test F3 population, we show that at least two separate loci approximately 30 cM apart on this chromosome are most likely involved in the resistance. First, a temporal analysis of the progression of symptoms reveals a distal locus early in the development of the disease. As the disease progresses, the maximum LOD peak observed shifts toward the proximal end of the chromosome, obscuring the distal locus. Second, although classical interval mapping could only detect the presence of one locus, a statistical "two-QTL model" test, specifically adapted for the resolution of linked QTL, strongly supported the hypothesis for the presence of two loci. These results are discussed in the context of current molecular knowledge about disease resistance genes on chromosome 6 and observations made by tomato breeders during the production of bacterial wilt-resistant varieties.  (+info)

The in-vitro activity of HMR 3647, a new ketolide antimicrobial agent. (7/6004)

The in-vitro activity of HMR 3647, a novel ketolide, was investigated in comparison with those of erythromycin A, roxithromycin, clarithromycin (14-membered ring macrolides), amoxycillin-clavulanate and ciprofloxacin against 719 recent clinical Gram-positive, Gram-negative and anaerobic isolates and type cultures. HMR 3647 generally demonstrated greater activity than the other compounds with MIC90s of < or =0.5 mg/L, except for Staphylococcus epidermidis (MIC90 > 128 mg/L), Haemophilus influenzae (MIC90 = 2 mg/L), Enterococcus faecalis (MIC90 = 2 mg/L), Enterococcus faecium (MIC90 = 1 mg/L) and the anaerobes, Bacteroides fragilis (MIC90 = 2 mg/L) and Clostridium difficile (MIC90 = 1 mg/L). In general, an increase in the size of the inoculum from 10(4) to 10(6) cfu on selected strains had little effect on the MICs of HMR 3647. Additionally, the in-vitro activity of HMR 3647 was not affected by the presence of either 20 or 70% (v/v) human serum. The antichlamydial activity of HMR 3647 was generally greater than that of commonly used antichlamydial antimicrobials.  (+info)

Candidate bacterial conditions. (8/6004)

This article provides background information on bacterial diseases and discusses those that are candidates for elimination or eradication. Only one disease, neonatal tetanus, is a strong candidate for elimination. Others, including Haemophilus influenzae b infection, leprosy, diphtheria, pertussis, tuberculosis, meningococcal disease, congenital syphilis, trachoma and syphilis are important causes of morbidity and mortality in industrialized and developing countries. For all these diseases, eradication/elimination is not likely because of the characteristics of the disease and limitations in the interventions.  (+info)

Severe bacterial infections are associated with mortality of about 30%. Patients with moderate to severe bacterial infections given early and appropriate empirical antibiotic treatment are at a lesser risk for a fatal outcome, with odds ratios ranging from 1.6 to 6.9. However only about 2/3 of patients worldwide are given early and appropriate empirical antibiotic treatment. About 40% of patients treated with antibiotics are given superfluous treatment.. TREAT is a computerized decision support system for antibiotic treatment in inpatients with common bacterial infections. TREAT is based on a state of the art stochastic model of the domain (a causal probabilistic network) and uses a cost benefit model for antibiotic treatment, including costs assigned to future resistance. It was tested in a randomized controlled trial in 3 countries and shown to improve the percentage of appropriate empirical antibiotic treatment while at the same time reduce hospital stay and the use of broad-spectrum ...

High fever in very young infants should raise the suspicion of a serious bacterial infection, according to research published in The Journal of Emergency Medicine.. In a secondary analysis of the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network study on febrile infants, researchers evaluated 4821 infants aged up to 8 weeks old. All children had a documented temperature - either taken in the enrolling emergency department, at another health care facility or at home - of 38°C or higher.. The researchers found that the height of fever was associated with an increased risk of bacteraemia, urinary infection or bacterial meningitis (odds ratio, 1.5). Where the temperature was taken was less strongly associated with an increased risk of serious bacterial infection (odds ratio, 1.3), and no association was found with the duration of the fever.. The researchers did note, however, that the height of fever alone was not sufficiently sensitive to rule out a serious bacterial infection. Even children with ...

IM (intramuscular) sites: There are several sites including midway between the dorsal fin and the lateral line (midline dorsal site), the musculature of the peduncle or flank (towards the tail), or the pectoral fin muscles. My own preference is the pectoral fin muscle, as the drug seems to be quickly taken up with little or no blowback in which the antibiotic comes out of the site as the needle is withdrawn. The drawback with the pectoral fin site is that only small volumes of drug can be injected, which is fine if you are using a low volume dosage antibiotic such as enrofloxacin, but no good for high volume drugs such as Borgal®. This site is not practical with smaller fish because of the lack of muscle in this area. If you are using multiple injections over a period, it is best to alternate the pectoral fin muscle used. Whatever site is chosen, the injection should be done slowly to maximise the deposition of antibiotic ...
Finally, we focused our attention on late infections (occurring after three months post transplantation). Twenty-eight infections were recorded among 22 patients from three months to two years post transplantation. During the first year, 13 severe bacterial infections, 3 fungal infections and 3 cytomegalovirus-reactivation were recorded, while between the first and the second year, only 4 severe bacterial infections developed. The cumulative incidence of first late infection was 14% at three years (Online Supplementary Appendix Figure S2A). By univariate analysis, chronic graft-versus-host disease and the source of cells marginally affected this cumulative incidence: 10 vs. 18% at 6OO days in patients without as compared to patients with chronic graft-versus-host disease (P=0.06). Other tested factors included the source of cell (11% with bone marrow vs. 22% with peripheral blood; P=0.08). Age (older vs. younger than 25 years median age), donor type (sibling vs. others), and total body ...

Fever is the most common reason that children present to Emergency Departments. Clinical signs and symptoms suggestive of bacterial infection are often non-specific, and there is no definitive test for the accurate diagnosis of infection. The omics approaches to identifying biomarkers from the host-response to bacterial infection are promising. In this study, lipidomic analysis was carried out with plasma samples obtained from febrile children with confirmed bacterial infection (n = 20) and confirmed viral infection (n = 20). We show for the first time that bacterial and viral infection produces distinct profile in the host lipidome. Some species of glycerophosphoinositol, sphingomyelin, lysophosphatidylcholine and cholesterol sulfate were higher in the confirmed virus infected group, while some species of fatty acids, glycerophosphocholine, glycerophosphoserine, lactosylceramide and bilirubin were lower in the confirmed virus infected group when compared with confirmed bacterial infected group.

A bacterial infection is an infection caused by bacteria. Bacterial infections can often be treated successfully with antibiotics.. An infection may begin as a bacterial infection. Or a bacterial infection may follow a viral infection that does not get better. When a viral infection doesnt get better for 10 days or more, or when a viral infection starts to improve and then unexpectedly gets worse, a bacterial infection may be more likely.. A bacterial infection usually affects a single area in the body, such as the sinuses, lungs, ears, or urinary tract. Common bacterial infections include sinusitis, pneumonia, strep throat, ear infections, and bladder infections. If untreated, a bacterial infection can spread to the bloodstream. This condition is called bacteremia.. ...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the risk of serious bacterial infections associated with tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha) antagonists among rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of US RA patients enrolled in a large health care organization identified patients who received either TNFalpha antagonists or methotrexate (MTX). Administrative data were used to identify hospitalizations with possible bacterial infections; corresponding medical records were abstracted and reviewed by infectious disease specialists for evidence of definite infections. Proportional hazards models evaluated time-dependent infection risks associated with TNFalpha antagonists. RESULTS: Hospital medical records with claims-identified suspected bacterial infections were abstracted (n=187) among RA patients who received TNFalpha antagonists (n=2,393; observation time 3,894 person-years) or MTX (n=2,933; 4,846 person-years).

Antibiotic resistant bacterial infections are bacterial infections that are minimally or no longer responsive to commonly used antibiotics. In other words, these bacteria are resistant to antibiotics - they cannot be killed and their growth cannot be stopped. These types of infections are difficult and costly to treat, and sometimes require the use of toxic and dangerous alternatives. These infections may also be passed to other pets or to humans. Antibiotic resistant bacterial infections most commonly affect the skin, the gastrointestinal tract, the urinary tract, or the respiratory tract.. ...

Growing data suggest that antimicrobial-resistant bacterial infections are common in low- and middle-income countries. This review summarises the microbiology of key bacterial syndromes encountered in West Africa and estimates the prevalence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) that could compromise first-line empirical treatment. We systematically searched for studies reporting on the epidemiology of bacterial infection and prevalence of AMR in West Africa within key clinical syndromes. Within each syndrome, the pooled proportion and 95% confidence interval were calculated for each pathogen-antibiotic pair using random-effects models. Among 281 full-text articles reviewed, 120 met the eligibility criteria. The majority of studies originated from Nigeria (70; 58.3%), Ghana (15; 12.5%) and Senegal (15; 12.5%). Overall, 43 studies (35.8%) focused on urinary tract infections (UTI), 38 (31.7%) on bloodstream infections (BSI), 27 (22.5%) on meningitis, 7 (5.8%) on diarrhoea and 5 (4.2%) on pneumonia. ...

Its best to check with your doctor to see whether or not your child needs the vaccine. Students who are not up-to-date will not be allowed to attend school until they are vaccinated.. Meningococcal disease is a severe bacterial infection that can lead to meningitis (inflammation of the lining covering the brain and spinal cord) and bloodstream infections such as septicemia. Symptoms of the disease include a high fever, headache, vomiting, a stiff neck and a rash. The meningococcus bacterium is treatable with antibiotics, but each year it causes approximately 2,500 infections and 300 deaths in the United States. Those who contract the disease may experience permanent brain damage, hearing loss, kidney failure, loss of arms or legs, or chronic nervous system problems. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found the highest rates of meningococcal disease to be among preteens, teens, and young adults, as well as among infants with certain medical conditions.

Bacterial infections are prevented and treated with antibiotics. Overuse of these drugs can lead to antibiotic resistance and the emergence of superbugs. According to WHO, antibiotic resistance has become one of the biggest threats to global health, food security and development today. Routine medical interventions such as hip replacements and removal of an appendix will become much more risky as antibiotics lose their effectiveness.. Effect of antibiotic resistance on the patient. An increasing number of infections such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, HIV and malaria are becoming harder to treat causing the death of about 700,000 people a year worldwide. This number has been estimated to increase to 10 million people by 2050. Common infections could become fatal again.. Even when effective antibiotics are available, antibiotic resistant infections often take longer to treat and may need more complicated surgery. The impact on the patient includes increased morbidity and mortality, and longer ...

Abstract The CDC estimates that 65-80% of clinically significant drug resistant bacterial infections are drug refractory due to a change in physiological state of pathogens associated with biofilm formation. TRL1068 is a high affinity (100 pM) native human monoclonal antibody (mAb) that disrupts biofilms by extracting a key bacterial scaffolding protein. The epitope is highly conserved in the target protein homologs across a broad spectrum of gram positive and gram negative bacteria, including all ESKAPE pathogens. The released bacteria regain sensitivity to antibiotics. Biofilm disruption has been demonstrated in vitro for Staphylococcus aureus and for several gram negative species: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii, Klebsiella pneumoniae. In vivo, TRL1068 in combination with an antibiotic vs. antibiotic alone has shown statistically significant efficacy against methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA) in two animal models (infected implants in mice and infective endocarditis in ...
Record number of countries contribute data revealing disturbing rates of antimicrobial resistance. https://www.who.int/news-room/detail/01-06-2020-record-number-of-countries-contribute-data-revealing-disturbing-rates-of-antimicrobial-resistance. 1 June 2020 - Geneva-A record number of countries are now monitoring and reporting on antibiotic resistance -- marking a major step forward in the global fight against drug resistance. But the data they provide reveals that a worrying number of bacterial infections are increasingly resistant to the medicines at hand to treat them.. As we gather more evidence, we see more clearly and more worryingly how fast we are losing critically important antimicrobial medicines all over the world, said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO). These data underscore the importance both of protecting the antimicrobials we have and developing new ones, to effectively treat infections, preserve health gains made in the ...
Bacterial infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Innovative approaches to their prevention and management are needed. New treatments have focused on discovering antibiotics but this is problematic given the rise of antimicrobial drug resistance in common bacterial pathogens. Recent attention has been placed on identifying immunomodulatory agents that enhance innate and/or adaptive immune defenses of the infected host.2 The present work by Stables et al advances this immunopharmacology paradigm as it pertains to bacterial infections.1 Their work suggests that one solution may lie within the biology of aspirin. Stables and collaborators used pharmacologic and genetic techniques to determine whether prostaglandin (PG) synthesis and signaling alters host immune responses to infections caused by either group B Streptococcus (GBS) or Streptococcus pneumoniae. Through elegant human and murine studies, Stables et al found that the inhibition of the PG-synthesizing cyclooxygenase-1
Antibacterial agent delivery is of great importance in medicine and dentistry since the bacterial infections are still one of the major reasons for hospitalization and mortality. Despite of the development of technique and pharmacy, more antimicrobial agents are optimized and utilized to treat infections, and their action of principal is better understood which lay a foundation for developing strategies for infection treatment. Over the last decades, many delivery systems have been established to deliver bacterial agents and maintain a sustained activity against them. However, the bacteria are always developing and finding a way to defend themselves. A more responsive antibacterial agent delivery system, which can release the active substances on demand to match the stages of diseases, is highly desirable. Therefore, it motivates us to carry out the work to develop a multifunctional delivery system for antibacterial particle formulation and encapsulation based on the layer-by-layer self-assembly ...
In this study, we have shown that peritoneal macrophages, obtained from patients with cirrhosis and AF, and the presence of bactDNA are primed to synthesise significantly higher amounts of NO than macrophages obtained from patients without bactDNA, and this is associated with marked activation of the cytokines implicated in the type 1 immune response.. Bacterial infections are common complications in patients with advanced cirrhosis, and SBP is the most frequent and clinically relevant.1 The classical pathogenic theory of SBP suggests that bacteria of intestinal origin move across the intestinal wall,5 reaching mesenteric lymph nodes and other organs. Bacteria can then obtain access to AF, and a SBP episode may eventually develop if the local bactericidal mechanisms are insufficient to mount an adequate response.16,17. We have recently described the presence of bactDNA in patients with cirrhosis and culture negative non-neutrocytic AF, a fact that we interpret as molecular evidence of BT.6 It is ...
In fact, there is an emerging literature on the role of bacterial infections in illness and deaths in this flu, and an emerging consensus that bacterial infections are playing a bigger and more serious role than was thought at first. At the ICAAC meeting two weeks ago (more on that soon), KK Johnson et al of the Womens and Childrens Hospital of Buffalo, N.Y., along with researchers from two other institutions, described two severe and ultimately fatal infections with H1N1 complicated by community-strain MRSA. The victims were children, a 9-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy, who arrived at the emergency room several days after being seen for mild flu symptoms. Both children died of necrotizing pneumonia, one 11 days after being hospitalized and one 3 days. Cite (no link available): K.K. Johnson, H. Faden, P. Joshi, J. F. Fasanello, L. J.

It is impossible to get rid of bacteria because they are everywhere, including our bodies that have plenty of bad and good bacteria. Infecting organisms try to survive, and to do this they must be looking for other reservoirs and cause infection there. Bacterial infections are transmitted through indirect or direct contact with the reservoir. Effective antibiotics are exceptionally important for us to survive, and that is why we must do anything possible give pathogens no chance to ruin our health ...
I went to the natropathic doctor some months in the past that found Ive Lyme with co-infections. I have started out having silver to battle the bacterial infections And that im getting other supplements and probiotics now. I ended the Deplin and started using B-Suprem by designs for overall health three weeks back. Im feeling a lot more nervous and frustrated now so I dont sense similar to the B-Supreme is sufficient methylated folate. I dont know if my troubles are from being over methylated or from your Lyme and co-bacterial infections. I dont know how to proceed. I want I had commenced with your protocol from the beginning, but undecided how to proceed now. I dont even know When the bacterial infections are even resulting in the problems. Soon after examining many your articles I am not sure if it is the infections resulting in my trouble or getting overmethylated. Do you think these issues are in excess of mythelation ...

Bacterial infections are not an uncommon flu complication. Even during normal flu seasons, they pose a very real, even potentially fatal risk to the elderly. This year, however, there has been a spike among Americans with the H1N1 flu. And unlike most of these infections, these seem to pose a real risk to children and younger adults.. November 25, federal health officials cited this troubling spike as they urged more at risk individuals to seek out a vaccine to prevent these secondary infections.. Dr. Anne Schuchat, director of immunization and respiratory disease for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, used Denver as an example. Denver is one of ten cities her organization monitors for circulating bacteria strains. In a typical October, the city might have twenty cases of bacterial secondary infections following the flu; this October, they experienced nearly sixty, two thirds of which were in adults under sixty.. Dr. Schuchat spoke not only of this trend and the particulars of the ...
Serum resistin levels were significantly elevated in patients with Gram-positive, as compared with Gram-negative, septic shock (P = 0.004). Analyses of tissue biopsies revealed that resistin was highly expressed at the local site of infection. Dual-staining for cell markers confirmed published findings that monocytes are a source of resistin in humans, but importantly the stainings revealed that the majority of resistin-producing cells were negative for the monocytic marker CD68. Further analyses identified these cells as neutrophils. A positive correlation between resistin levels and neutrophil counts was found in blood of septic shock patients (P = 0.005). In vitro cell cultures revealed resistin release by neutrophils stimulated with lipopolysaccharide or superantigens. ...
Although SMX/TMP remains the drug of choice for PCP prophylaxis, drug sensitivity may limit its use. Atovaquone has demonstrated greater safety than SMX/TMP and thus is suitable as a candidate drug for treatment and prophylaxis of PCP. Azithromycin, with a broad anti-microbial spectrum (including mycoplasma and atypical mycoplasma), is an attractive prophylactic agent for use in children with HIV infection, due to its relative safety and once-daily dosing regimen. Therefore, the combination of atovaquone and azithromycin may offer broader antimicrobial coverage and greater safety than SMX/TMP.. Patients are randomized to receive either SMX/TMP or combination micronized atovaquone/azithromycin. Crossover to the alternative regimen may occur if serious toxicity is observed. Patients are monitored for occurrence of serious bacterial infections or PCP breakthrough, and when a serious bacterial infection occurs, patients are crossed over to the alternative regimen. Treatment continues until 2 years ...
Antibiotic resistant bacterial infections are bacterial infections that are minimally or no longer responsive to commonly used antibiotics. In other words, these bacteria are resistant to antibiotics - they cannot be killed and their growth cannot be stopped. These types of infections are difficult and costly to treat, and sometimes require the use of toxic and dangerous alternatives. These infections may also be passed to other pets or to humans. Antibiotic resistant bacterial infections most commonly affect the skin, the gastrointestinal tract, the urinary tract, or the respiratory tract.. ...

Y1 - 1983. N2 - We evaluated the efficacy and safety of ceftriaxone in 50 adults with serious infections, usually giving 1 g every 12 h. Of the 35 patients who could be evaluated for clinical efficacy, 15 had failed on previous therapy, 15 had nosocomial infections, and all but 1 had underlying diseases. One patient had three sites of infection. Favorable responses were seen in 34 of 37 infections, including 11 of 13 respiratory tract infections, all 7 urinary tract infections, all 12 skin and soft tissue infections, 1 of 2 bone and joint infections, a catheter-related septicemia, a liver abscess, and an otitis media and externa. Favorable bacteriological responses were seen for 48 of 58 organisms. This included 6 of 7 Staphylococcus aureus strains, 14 of 16 other aerobic gram-positive cocci, 18 of 20 ...
Some children get serious bacterial infections that require hospitalization and then a long course of antibiotics to completely treat the infection. Examples of these serious infections include ruptured appendicitis (when the appendix gets inflamed and bursts, releasing bacteria into the abdomen), complicated pneumonia (when an infected pocket of pus forms either in the lung or between the lung and chest wall), and osteomyelitis (an infection of the bone).
Chronic bacterial prostatitis (CBP) represents a bacterial infection of the prostate gland. CBP causes an associated symptom complex, the hallmark of which is the occurrence of relapsing urinary tract infections, usually involving the same pathogen.

Early administration of appropriate antimicrobials has been correlated with a better prognosis in patients with bacteremia, but the optimum timing of early antibiotic administration as one of the resuscitation strategies for severe bacterial infections remains unclear. In a retrospective cohort study, adults with community-onset bacteremia at the emergency department (ED) were analyzed. Effects of different cutoffs of time to appropriate antibiotic (TtAa) administration after arrival at the ED on 28-day mortality were examined, after adjustment for independent predictors of mortality identified by multivariate regression analysis. Among 2349 patients, the mean (interquartile range) TtAa was 2.0 (|1 to 12) hours. All selected cutoffs of TtAa, ranging from 1 to 96 hours, were significantly associated with 28-day mortality (adjusted odds ratio (AOR), 0.54-0.65, all P | 0.001), after adjustment of the following prognostic factors: fatal comorbidities (McCabe classification), critical illness (Pitt

There are few data on predictors of HIV progression in untreated children in resource-limited settings. Children with HIV Antibiotic Prophylaxis (CHAP) was a randomized trial comparing cotrimoxazole prophylaxis with placebo in HIV-infected Zambian children. The prognostic value of baseline characteristics was investigated using Cox models. Five hundred fourteen children aged 1 to 14 (median 5.5) years contributed 607 years follow-up (maximum 2.6 years). Half were boys, and in 67%, the mother was the primary carer; at baseline, median CD4 percentage was 11% and weight was less than third percentile in 67%. One hundred sixty-five children died (27.2 per 100 years at risk; 95% confidence interval 23.3-31.6). Low weight-for-age, CD4 percentage, hemoglobin, mother as primary carer, current malnutrition, and previous hospital admissions for respiratory tract infections or recurrent severe bacterial infections were independent predictors of poorer survival, whereas oral candidiasis predicted poorer ...
Introduction: The prevalence of cancers has been noted to be on the increase worldwide. In Africa this increase has mainly been attributed to viral infections especially mv. Lymphomas are currently the commonest childhood cancers seen in Uganda. Although chemotherapy remains the most widely used treatment modality for most childhood cancers, it is associated with bone marrow suppression, and this predisposes these children to severe bacterial infections that are fatal if not treated with appropriate antibiotics. This study was therefore set to determine the common bacterial organisms and their sensitivity patterns in children on cancer chemotherapy at the institute. Objective: To determine the prevalence and aetiology of bacteraemia among children with lymphomas initiated on cancer chemotherapy at the UCI. Methods: This was a cross sectional descriptive study, carried out at the UCI, Mulago hospital between November 2008 and March 2009 among children with lymphomas on cancer chemotherapy. A ...

Targeting the immune system to fight cancer is not new: in 1891, New York bone sarcoma surgeon William B. Coley injected a patient with an inoperable malignant tumor with streptococcal organisms. His theory was that the resulting severe bacterial infection, erysipelas, would stimulate the immune system, shrinking the tumor. His hunch was right, and over…

Bacterial infections are common in hematological malignancy. Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) are among the most prevalent causes of bacteremia in patients with hematological malignancies.. In this thesis, different aspects of CoNS in hematological malignancy have been studied in four papers:. In paper 1, CoNS blood culture isolates from patients with hematological malignancies treated at the University Hospital of Örebro from 1980 to 2009 were revaluated for the presence of reduced sensitivity to glycopeptides. A high incidence of heterogeneous-intermediate glycopeptide resistance was observed and there was a trend towards increasing incidence of this phenotype over time.. In paper 2, the colonization pattern of CoNS among patients undergoing intensive chemotherapy for hematological malignancy was investigated. A successive homogenization and an accumulation of CoNS phenotypes mutually present in a majority of included patients were demonstrated.. In paper 3, a PCR method to determine ...

CN) - Researchers said Thursday that potentially deadly bacterial infections are on the rise among children in the United States as rates of antibiotic resistance increase.. In a study published in the Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society, researchers analyzed the resistance rates to several classes of antibiotics among isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a type of bacteria that is a common cause of health care-associated infections.. Using data collected from pediatric patients nationwide, the team found that P. aeruginosa bacteria became more resistant to several classes of antibiotics between 1999 and 2012, including doubling their resistance to carbapenems - a class of antibiotics that are considered a last-resort treatment for highly resistant infections.. Highly drug-resistant P. aeruginosa infections leave health care providers with limited - or sometimes no - antibiotic choices available, and these antibiotics are less safe and more toxic in children, study co-author ...
Despite the extensive use of antibiotic agents and the existence of vaccination programs, infectious diseases, particularly bacterial infections are still a major cause of death worldwide. Indeed, because of the massive and often inadequate use of antibiotics, pathogenic bacteria have developed resistance mechanisms against most classes of currently available antibiotics. This trend has been particularly dramatic over the past twenty years. The possible transmission of genes that encode the mechanisms of resistance between different bacterial species has led to the emergence of multiresistant bacteria. This situation causes problems in therapy, particularly in hospitals, The recent and continuous emergence of conventionally used antibiotic-resistant strains in clinic is a serious public health issue. It is urgent new antibacterial agents be discovered. Such molecules must be targeted to proteins that are essential for cell viability, but absent in mammals.. The main objects of this research work ...
The technique represents a viable alternative to antibiotics for the treatment of bacterial infection, using naturally occurring viruses called bacteriophages eaters of bacteria, or phages for short.. Researchers at the University of Leicester have isolated phages that specifically target C.diff, an infection of the gut that killed 1,646 in the UK last year. In lab tests, funded by the Medical Research Council, the viruses were 90 per cent effective against the most dangerous strains of the bug.. The danger posed by growing resistance to antibiotics is one of the gravest health risks facing the world, doctors have warned, and alternative methods for treating bacterial infections are being urgently sought.. Dr Martha Clokie, who led the research at Leicesters Department of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation, said that phages could have a major role to play in coming decades.. The future impact of antibiotics is dwindling at a pace that no one anticipated, with more and more bacteria ...
University of California School of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Medicine and Epidemiology, Davis, CA 95616 Introduction and Objectives. Bacterial infections are the leading cause of death in foals during the first month of life. Ceftiofur, a 3rd-generation cephalosporin, shows excellent in vitro activity against many Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including E. coli, Actinobacillus spp, and other important pathogens of neonatal foals. This antimicrobial has recently been approved for treating Streptococcal respiratory tract infections in horses at a 24-hour dosage interval and at doses (2.2 to 4.4 mg/kg IM) substantially lower than those recommended for use of other 3rd-generation cephalosporins. The pharmacokinetics of ceftiofur administered IM to foals and adult horses have been reported, but no data is available concerning the pharmacokinetics of ceftiofur after IV use, the preferred administration route for critically ill foals.. The objectives of this study were:. 1. To ...
Since the serendipitous discovery of the first antibiotic, the wonder drug penicillin by Alexander Fleming, bacteria over time have slowly developed resistance to most antibiotics through three well coordinated processes. Firstly, bacteria can evolve their genetic makeup to become resistant against antibiotics; Secondly, bacteria can relay the modified antibiotic resistant genes to other bacteria and other species through a process called conjugation. Thirdly, bacteria quickly give up their individuality to become a part of a team to form surface attached multicellular communities known as biofilms. Bacteria residing within biofilms are protected by a layer of slime which renders the bacteria one thousand fold more resistant to the action of antibiotics. Nearly eighty percent of bacterial infections are associated with biofilms and therefore understandably, biofilms are considered as one of the seven most important health issues facing mankind in the 21st century. The focus of research work presented

Treatment The therapy depends on whether the pneumonia contamination is bacterial, viral, or yeast, and also on how extreme it is. Bacterial infections are usually remedied by taking the full course of prescribed antibiotics much like the directions of the doctor. Antibiotics are often unproductive against viral infections, but can usually be healed simply by taking rest at home for a few days. Fungal infections are cured with the help of antifungal treatments. In order to take care of the particular pneumonia symptoms like fever, soreness, and cough, some over-the-counter medicines may be prescribed to supply comfort and sleep. If the signs are extreme, a hospital stay may be recommended, wherever antibiotics may be given intravenously, as well as oxygen therapy may be given. Additionally, some respiratory treatments may also be carried out, if necessary ...

Ive always looked at our gut microbiome as a way we achieve optimal health. How is that possible? Well, we know an approach that doesnt work, thats visiting the doctor and obtaining prescriptions for pharmaceutical drugs. What I find fascinating is despite over a trillion dollars of research expenditures, few curative drugs have been invented. You ever thought about that? Antibiotics for bacterial infections are almost the only candidate, and bacteria are already evolving and developing resistance on the current list of antibiotics that we have on the marketplace today ...
Researchers in the School of Dentistry used Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) to produce the webs, known as NETS (neutrophil extracellular traps), from the white blood cells of patients who have a condition in which their cells are unable to produce NETs naturally. The findings are reported in the journal Clinical and Experimental Immunology.. Recent studies have shown that when neutrophils - the white blood cells which form the bodys first line of defence against bacterial infection - are heavily challenged by microbes, they start to die in a specially controlled way. As a last-ditch measure, they expel their entire DNA from within their nucleus into the surrounding tissue. It is this DNA that forms a sticky spiders web or NET, which also contains enzymes that destroy the bacteria once they are trapped by the NET.. Scientists led by Professor Iain Chapple and Dr Paul Cooper in the Periodontal Research Group at the University of Birmingham discovered that Hypochlorous acid stimulated NET release in ...
INTRODUCTION The principal cause of death in the Western world is cardiovascular diseases, the majority of which are coronary heart disease or cerebrovascular disease with a pathogenic mechanism of atherothrombosis.1 In recent years, a theory of «response to the lesion» has been proposed as the inductor mechanism for atherothrombosis; basically this theory states that inflammatory and immunological processes triggered by viral or bacterial infections are the underlying cause of the atherosclerotic process.2-4 In fact, there is scientific evidence supports this theory with regard to Chlamydia pneumoniae,5 Chlamydia TWAR,6 and cytomegalovirus7 such as, for example, the finding on PCR or immunofluoresence of Chlamydia pneumoniae and Chlamydia TWAR in atheromatous plaques by PCR, immunocytochemistry, and electron microscope.5 A relationship has been observed between dental infections and coronary cardiopathy,8 as has a correlation between cardiovascular risk factors and markers for inflammatory ...

OBJECTIVES Nonspecific clinical symptoms frequently lead to suspicion of bacterial infection in critically ill children. Clinicians send bacterial cultures for suspected infection and begin an empiric course of antibiotics while microbiology results are pending. We investigated whether the biomarker procalcitonin could be useful to predict confirmed bacterial infection in critically ill children in the PICU, before culture results are available. DESIGN Prospective, blinded single-center study. SETTING Tertiary PICU and cardiothoracic ICU. PATIENTS There were one hundred forty-four patients with suspected bacterial infections that had bacterial cultures sent by clinicians. INTERVENTIONS Procalcitonin samples were obtained at three time intervals: as close to the time of the initial culture as possible (up to 12 hr after) and 24 and 72 hours after the initial culture. Patients were stratified into clinical outcome groups based on microbiology results and clinical symptoms using Centers for Disease

Results. The frequencies of extended MBL expression genotypes did not differ between patients and controls. There were 82 patients with SLE who had high MBL expression genotypes and 43 who had medium and low MBL expression genotypes. Patients with the high MBL expression genotype had renal disorders more frequently than patients in the group with medium and low MBL expression genotypes [54/82 (65.9%) vs 18/43 (41.9%), respectively; p = 0.013] and fewer serious bacterial infections [22/82 (26.8%) vs 20/43 (46.5%); p = 0.030]. Using logistic regression for patients with SLE, a high MBL expression genotype was independently associated with renal disorders (OR 2.49, 95% CI 1.15-5.39, p = 0.021) and had a protective effect against serious bacterial infections (OR 0.29, 95% CI 0.12-0.71, p = 0.007). MBL levels decreased significantly when patients with active SLE reached an inactive stage (1.56 ± 0.55 μg/ml vs 1.08 ± 0.65 μg/ml; p = 0.001), but these levels were still higher than those in controls. ...
Infectious diseases in children living in resource-limited settings are often presumptively managed on the basis of clinical signs and symptoms. Malaria is an exception. However, the interpretation of clinical signs and symptoms in relation to bacterial infections is often challenging, which may lead to an over prescription of antibiotics when a malaria infection is excluded. The present study aims to determine the association between clinical signs and symptoms and basic hematology data, with laboratory confirmed bacterial infections. A health survey was done by study nurses to collect clinical signs/symptoms in febrile (axillary temperature ≥ 37.5 °C) children under - 5 years of age. In addition, blood, stool and urine specimen were systematically collected from each child to perform bacterial culture and full blood cell counts. To determine the association between a bacterial infection with clinical signs/symptoms, and if possible supported by basic hematology data (hemoglobin and leucocyte rates)
