A federation of seven states on the southeast portion of the Arabian peninsula: Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al-Qaiwain. In 1820 a treaty of peace was concluded between Great Britain and native rulers. During the 19th century the rulers agreed to suppression of the slave trade and restriction of foreign relations to Great Britain. The Trucial Council was established in 1952 and defense treaties with Great Britain terminated. In 1971 an independent six-member federation was formed, with Ras al-Khaimah joining the federation in 1972. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p1250)

Correlation of periurethral bacterial flora with bacteriuria and urinary tract infection in children with neurogenic bladder receiving intermittent catheterization. (1/581)

Periurethral bacteria are inoculated daily into the urine of children with neurogenic bladder during clean intermittent catheterization (CIC). We examined how frequently periurethral bacterial species produced bacteriuria in children followed longitudinally. When Escherichia coli was detected on the periurethra, bacteriuria was also present 93% of the time. When Klebsiella, Pseudomonas, or Enterococcus species or nonpathogens were detected on the periurethra, bacteriuria was present 80%, 40%, 40%, and 25% of the time, respectively. Clonal typing of multiple colonies of E. coli from each periurethral and urine culture revealed that children carried only one or two E. coli clones in their urinary tracts over months of surveillance. When E. coli was detected in the urine, the identical clone was on the periurethra. E. coli persisted for weeks in the urine without causing symptoms. Occasionally the same E. coli clone carried for weeks caused a urinary tract infection. Bacteriuria frequently occurs after inoculation of periurethral E. coli into the urine during CIC.  (+info)

Mycoplasma penetrans and other mycoplasmas in urine of human immunodeficiency virus-positive children. (3/581)

Urine samples from children with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and healthy controls were examined for mycoplasmas by culture. Standard biochemical assays, sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and PCR (16S and 16S-23S spacer rRNA region) were used for identification of isolates. Mycoplasmas were identified from 13 (87%) of 15 HIV-positive patients and 3 (20%) of 15 HIV-negative control patients. The frequency and type of mycoplasma varied with the severity of HIV infection. Mycoplasma penetrans, Mycoplasma pirum, Mycoplasma fermentans, and Mycoplasma genitalium were isolated from patients with severe immunodeficiency. Mycoplasma hominis and Ureaplasma urealyticum were isolated more frequently from children in the early stages of HIV infection and from HIV-negative patients. Mycoplasma penetrans was isolated from one (50%) of two patients in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) group B and from five (55.5%) of nine pediatric patients with AIDS (CDC group C). This is the first report that indicates that "AIDS-associated" mycoplasmas are more common in HIV-infected children than in HIV-negative controls.  (+info)

Single-dose oral ciprofloxacin compared with cefotaxime and placebo for prophylaxis during transurethral surgery. (4/581)

To determine the efficacy and safety of single-dose oral ciprofloxacin prophylaxis for the prevention of post-operative bacteriuria following transurethral resection of the prostate or bladder tumour, a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was conducted. Five hundred and eighteen patients were randomized in a 2:2:1 ratio to receive ciprofloxacin 500 mg, cefotaxime 1 g or placebo 30-90 min before surgery. Of the 368 efficacy-evaluable patients, five (3.3%) ciprofloxacin, seven (4.8%) cefotaxime and five (7.0%) placebo recipients had post-operative bacteriuria (> or = 10(4) cfu/mL) during post-operative days 2-15. Five (3.4%) ciprofloxacin, five (3.4%) cefotaxime and one (2.4%) placebo recipients were considered clinical failures, of whom one, two and one patients, respectively, had concomitant bacteriuria. Drug-related adverse events were reported in six of 204 (3%) ciprofloxacin, 12 of 197 (6%) cefotaxime and one of 101 (1%) placebo patients. The observed rates of post-operative bacteriuria suggest that a single 500 mg dose of ciprofloxacin is suitable prophylaxis for transurethral surgery.  (+info)

Effect of glucose and pH on uropathogenic and non-uropathogenic Escherichia coli: studies with urine from diabetic and non-diabetic individuals. (5/581)

It is generally assumed that one of the reasons why diabetics are more susceptible to urinary tract infections than non-diabetics is their 'sweet urine'. However, very little information is available on this subject. Therefore, the growth rates of different Escherichia coli strains were studied in human urine with and without added glucose and with and without a constant pH, and compared with their growth rates in Mueller-Hinton broth (MHB). Eight isolates were used (three from blood cultures from urosepsis patients, two urinary isolates, two faecal isolates and one laboratory strain K12). All isolates grew better in MHB than in urine, but with the exception of the laboratory strain, they had the same growth rate in urine. No significant difference was found between the growth rate in urine from diabetics without glucosuria and that in urine from non-diabetics. The addition of glucose (up to a concentration of 1000 mg/dl) to urine and MHB enhanced the growth rate of all isolates. However, very high concentrations of glucose (up to 10000 mg/dl) in urine and MHB caused a decrease in bacterial growth rate when the urinary pH was not kept constant. The stationary phase was reached later and the final bacterial yield was greater when the urine was made less acidic. As the uropathogenic strains did not grow better in urine than the other isolates, it may be concluded that better growth in urine is not one of the causes of the greater virulence of these strains.  (+info)

Experimental urinary tract infection with Pseudomonas aeruginosa in mice. (6/581)

Urinary tract infection with Pseudomonas aeruginosa was induced in mice by transurethral inoculation of the organism into the bladder, followed by urethral obstruction for 6 h. The infection was mostly localized in the urinary organs. P. aeruginosa P9 was selected as the challenge organism from 10 laboratory strains of P. aeruginosa. After the inoculation of 10(7) colony-forming units of P. aeruginosa P9, transient bacteremia was observed in some of the mice from 6 h to 1 day after the inoculation. The number of organisms in the bladder tissue gradually decreased, whereas that in the kidneys increased to levels of 10(6) to 10(7) colony-forming units in 3 days, and these levels remained up to 2 weeks after the inoculation. The organisms gradually disappeared thereafter, and spontaneous recovery took place. The organisms could be recovered from the kidneys of 95% of the mice, and the gross lesions in the kidneys were observed in 77% of the mice 1 week after inoculation. The method developed here is simple and may be useful in the study of urinary tract infections due to P. aeruginosa and other species of bacteria.20  (+info)

The effect of specimen processing delay on borate urine preservation. (7/581)

AIM: To investigate the effect on urine culture results and their clinical interpretation of delaying the processing of urine samples in which boric acid had been used as a preservative. METHODS: 792 mid-stream specimens of urine from patients attending their general practitioner were received in borate containing plastic jars. The specimens were cultured upon receipt, stored at room temperature, and then recultured the following morning. RESULTS: After overnight delayed culture, the results were altered in 16% of samples and the clinical interpretation of these findings differed in 8% of specimens. In 28 samples (3.5%) the bacterium isolated on initial culture was not the same as that obtained by culture after overnight storage. CONCLUSIONS: Boric acid urine preservation used for overnight delayed processing of samples is associated with a significant alteration in culture results and the attendant clinical interpretation of such specimens. Rapid transportation/processing of urine specimens must remain the optimum procedure.  (+info)

Evaluation of the leukocyte esterase and nitrite urine dipstick screening tests for detection of bacteriuria in women with suspected uncomplicated urinary tract infections. (8/581)

A positive dipstick urinalysis (i.e., leukocyte esterase test and/or nitrite test) did not reliably detect significant bacteriuria in 479 ambulatory women with suspected uncomplicated urinary tract infection; 18.9% of the urine samples that demonstrated significant bacteriuria would have been rejected by the laboratory based on a negative urinalysis screen.  (+info)

may lead to symptomatic upper urinary tract infection called pyelonephritis, which may result in a complicated pregnancy. Asymptomatic bacteriuria, most of the times, enters into urinary tract during sexual intercourse or wiping after bowel movement. Since asymptomatic bacteriuria goes undetected, it is crucial to know the causes that increase a persons risk of infection with asymptomatic bacteriuria. Early detection and treatment can help avoid the consequences of untreated asymptomatic bacteriuria.. Some of the risk factors associated with asymptomatic bacteriuria infection in the asymptomatic bacteriuria treatment market includes sickle cell disease, diabetes, immunosuppressive disorders, urinary tract obstructions, loss of bladder control and need for chronic instrumentation of the bladder. If a person encounters any of these risk factors, he or she must consult a doctor immediately. In case of non-pregnant women, asymptomatic bacteriuria rarely causes any serious disorder. Standard ...

Y1 - 2005/5. N2 - Objective: This study was undertaken to determine whether reagent strip testing can predict bacteriuria in urogynecology patients. Study design: All women undergoing urodynamic evaluations fromJune 1997 toOctober 2001 were identified by using a computerized database. Urine culture results were compared with reagent strip testing. Significant bacteriuria was defined as greater than 105 colony-forming units per milliliter. Results: Bacteriuria prevalence was 8.6% (n =51). Sensitivity and specificity of nitrites were 0.51, (95% CI, 0.31-0.66) and 0.991, (95% CI, 0.974-0.998), respectively. Blood had a lower sensitivity (0.35,95%CI, 0.20-0.54) and specificity (0.80,95%CI, 0.75-0.84). Leukocyte esterase was similar to blood with a sensitivity of 0.28 (95% CI, 0.14-0.45) and specificity of ...
Asymptomatic Bacteriuria A combination of host defense inefficiency, anatomy, behavior, and microbial virulence factors identifies a cohort of women who have episodes of bacteriuria throughout their lifetimes.31,32,33,34,35,36 Cross-sectional prevalence studies identify 1% to 8% of women with asymptomatic bacteriuria.21,22 In longitudinal studies, 30% to 50% of nonpregnant women with bacteriuria have symptomatic lower urinary tract infections during 3 to 5 years of follow-up.32,33,34 Most episodes cluster over a 3- to 4-month period, followed by an asymptomatic interval of variable length. A series of 9- to 19-year follow-up studies37 on 60 asymptomatic bacteriuric school girls (6 to 10 years old) were compared with studies on 38 nonbacteriuric control school girls matched for age, race, and school. Episodes of bacteriuria in the 5-year study period for infected girls and controls were 22% and 3%; episodes during pregnancy were 64% and 27%. The children of bacteriuric women were more likely to ...
Bacteriuria is assumed if a single bacterial species is isolated in a concentration greater than 100,000 colony forming units per millilitre of urine in clean-catch midstream urine specimens.[12] In urine samples obtained from women, there is a risk for bacterial contamination from the vaginal flora. Therefore, in research, usually a second specimen is analysed to confirm asymptomatic bacteriuria in women. For urine collected via bladder catheterization in men and women, a single urine specimen with greater than 100,000 colony forming units of a single species per millilitre is considered diagnostic.[12] The threshold for women displaying UTI symptoms can be as low as 100 colony forming units of a single species per millilitre. However, bacteria below a threshold of 10000 colony forming units per millilitre are usually reported as no growth by clinical laboratories.[13][14]. Using special techniques certain non-disease causing bacteria have also been found in the urine of healthy people.[15] ...

Blood samples and urine cultures will be obtained from asymptomatic renal transplant clinic patients. If the urine culture is positive (, or = 105 cfu/ml), we will determine the host and bacterial virulence factors associated with asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) and compare these results to transplant patients that develop a symptomatic UTI. The patients clinical information, laboratory data and the bacterial isolate responsible for the UTI will be collected at the time of their clinic visit and subsequently analyzed.. After the first visit (Day 0 after signing consent) blood and urine will be collected, subjects will be put into either ASB Positive or ASB Negative groups based upon the results of their urine culture. From that point, those who test into the ASB Negative group will have an additional urine culture, either by returning to the clinic or by sending a urine culture mailer kit, and if cultures remain negative, they will be discharged from the study after reviewing medications, ...
Overview. Clinical dogma is that healthy urine is sterile and the presence of bacteria with an inflammatory response is indicative of urinary tract infection (UTI). Asymptomatic bacteriuria (ABU) represents the state in which bacteria are present but the inflammatory response is negligible. Differentiating ABU from UTI is diagnostically challenging, but critical because overtreatment of ABU can perpetuate antimicrobial resistance while undertreatment of UTI can result in increased morbidity and mortality. We studied key characteristics of the healthy and ABU urine microbiomes utilizing 16S rRNA sequencing and metaproteomics, with the future goal of utilizing this information to personalize the treatment of UTI by more accurately differentiating ABU from UTI. A cross-sectional study of 26 healthy controls and 27 healthy subjects at risk for ABU due to spinal cord injury-related neuropathic bladder (NB) was conducted. Of the 27 subjects with NB, 8 voided normally, 8 utilized intermittent ...

BACKGROUND: Bacteriuria is common post-transplant. However, most studies are in adults with a short follow-up. We have assessed the incidence of bacteriuria, predisposing causes and its effect on short and long-term graft function in children. METHODS: The notes of 142 children (67% male) who received 168 kidney transplants (138 cadaveric) between 1987 and 1994 were studied. The mean age at transplantation was 9.0 +/- 4.5 years, and 32 children were transplanted pre-emptively. Diagnoses reflected those found in any childrens renal failure programme. RESULTS: Two hundred and thirty one episodes of bacteriuria were detected in 66 patients patients (46%): a rate of one episode per 23 patient months of follow-up. Fifty two percent were during the first year, and 29% of these during the first 4 weeks post-transplant. Forty two children (28%) had recurrences. The incidence was not affected by sex, vesico-ureteric reflux into native kidneys, donor source, circumcision in boys, dialysis pre-transplant ...
Objectives: This study aims to determine the frequency and risk factors of bacteriuria and urinary tract infection (UTI) in patients with primary Sjögrens syndrome (SS) and their differences from healthy individuals and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients.. Patients and methods: The study included 107 female primary SS patients (mean age 50.7±11.6 years; range, 23 to 76 years), 53 healthy female control subjects (mean age 46.8±15.5 years; range 21 to 80 years), and 40 females with RA (mean age 51.7±14.2 years; range, 25 to 79 years). Participants were questioned for UTI risk factors and symptoms. Middle stream urine samples were taken and cultured. All participants were examined with urinary symptom questioning survey of American Urological Association (AUA-7).. Results: The urine cultures were positive in 18 primary SS patients (16.8%), eight RA patients (20%), and two healthy controls (3.7%). Escherichia coli, enterococci, Klebsiella, streptococci, and candida were detected in SS patients ...
This study was carried out to determine the prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria among the students of University of Port Harcourt Demonstration, Secondary School. Urine samples were collected from 50 males and 50 females. The samples were cultured on CLED and MacConkey agar. Growth was observed in 89 (89%) of the samples while there was no growth in 11 (11%) of the samples. Of the 89 samples with growth 59 (66%) had no significant bacteriuria, 10 (11%) had significant growth and 20 (22%) had mixed culture growth. Prevalence of significant asymptomatic bacteriuria was higher in females 6 (60%) than males 4 (40%). The organisms isolated were S. aureus; S. epidermidis; E. coli; Pseudomonas ...
Short courses of nitrofurantoin and ampicillin produced an immediate cure in 80% of adult non-pregnant bacteriuric women. Of the subjects so treated, 55% remained cured at the end of one year. Over the same follow-up period 36% of untreated bacteriuric women developed a spontaneous remission of bacteriuria. Treatment failed to prevent the development of symptomatic infection, and the reinfections which followed successful treatment were more commonly associated with the development of symptoms than the persistent or relapsing infections in untreated or unsuccessfully treated subjects.. It is concluded that a search for bacteriuria in non-pregnant women is unlikely to be of value as a preventive measure, since in many instances it fails to detect urinary tract infection at an early stage and since treatment by methods suitable for large-scale use is ineffective.. ...
Out of 16,413 urine samples that were received in the laboratory, 318 had significant bacteriuria. NFGNB were isolated in 108 (33.9%) of the 318 urine samples with significant growth. Out of the 108 patients, females were 59.25% and males 40.74%. A similar study conducted by Rachana Solanki et al.16 in Kolar, Karnataka reported 1.6% NFGNB. In the previous study done by Shobha KL et al.17 at Manipal, out of 1271 midstream urine isolates with significant bacteriuria, NFGNB were found in 120 (9.44%) cases and was higher in female patients. Higher isolation rate of non-fermenters in our study may be attributed to the fact that majority of the samples collected in our study were from patients who were admitted in the hospital either in ward or ICU due to some underlying causes and were on Foleys catheter or DJ stenting.. Among 108 patients from which NFGNB were isolated, 67.6 % were above fifty years of age. This finding was in concordance to a study done in Telangana where 69.04 % NFGNB were ...
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are rendered as the most common bacterial infections prevailing among humans, both in the community and hospital settings. In pregnancy, UTI can lead to poor maternal and perinatal outcomes. The current cross-sectional study was undertaken to estimate the prevalence of UTI in pregnant women, to determine its association with sociodemographic, obstetrical and other factors, and to identify causative agents with antibiotic sensitivity. A total of 300 pregnant women at Al-Zahraa teaching hospital / Al-Najaf from the 1st of April 2014 to 30th July 2014, with and without the symptoms of urinary tract infection (UTI), were recruited for this study. Midstream urine samples were taken and general urine examination with culture was performed. Sensitivity tests were also performed for the isolated organisms. The data pertaining to the associated risk factors were collected by using a structured questionnaire form. The results revealed that the overall prevalence of ...

To investigate the role of cross-infection in nonepidemic nosocomial bacteriuria in a large, university-affiliated hospital, we identified in adult patients admitted over an 11-week period all cases caused by organisms of the same genus, species, and antimicrobial susceptibility and clustered by date of onset and hospital ward. Further laboratory studies were conducted to verify clustering. Among the 3452 patients studied, 194 cases of nosocomial bacteriuria were identified; 49 appeared clustered by epidemiologic evidence. Additional laboratory tests verified clustering in 30 cases (15.5%). We found that 90% of clustered and 76% of nonclustered cases had had previous urinary catheterization; Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Serratia marcescens, and Citrobacter freundii often caused clustered infection while Escherichia coli predominated in nonclustered cases; and resistance to gentamicin, sulfathiazole, and carbenicillin was significantly greater for pathogens from clustered cases than for nonclustered ...

One hundred and twenty six patients diagnosed as having AIDS had their urinalysis and electrolyte profiles studied. The commonest electrolyte abnormalities were a low serum bicarbonate in 56% of the patients and hyponatraemia in 48%. Possible aetiological factors are discussed. Significant pyuria was found in 10% of the patients and significant bacteriuria in 13%. Escherichia coli was the commonest isolated organism (56% of all the culture positive cases). Proteinuria above the upper limit of normal was detectable in 13% of the patients; of these, 25% had proteinuria in the nephrotic range. Of the patients 3% had clinical and biochemical evidence of renal insufficiency. It is concluded that significant bacteriuria occurs commonly in AIDS and that renal insufficiency and nephrotic syndrome may be associated with the disease.

ova was employed. Out of the 838 persons examined, 350 (41.8%) were infected with S. haematobium. Of the 430 males and 408 females examined, 175 (40.7%) and 175 (42.9%) were infected respectively. There was no significant difference in the prevalence of infection amongst the sexes (X2 = 1.19; df = 1; P> 0.05). Over 60% of the infected persons are aged 0 - 20 years. Statistical analysis revealed that the prevalence (X2 = 16.65; df = 6, P< 0.05) and intensity (t = 7.02; df = 6, P< 0.05) were significantly more in persons under the age of 20 years than those above 20 years. Sixty - four (18.3%) of the infected persons were excreting < 50 eggs/10ml urine while 286 (81.7%) were excreting > 50 eggs/10ml urine. Visible haematuria increased with intensity of infection. Farmers were significantly (X2 = 9.82, df = 4; P< 0.05) more affected than other occupational groups examined. Of the 350 persons examined, 44 (22.6%) had significant bacteriuria. The rate of significant bacteriuria increased with age in ...
What causes a Urinary Infection?. The majority of Urine infections are caused by bacteria from you own bowel. They are normally harmless if they stay with the bowel but if they spread they can cause infection in other parts of your body. Pregnant women are more prone to these infections probably due to increase in hormone levels in pregnancy.. Should you be checked for Urinary Infections in pregnancy?. Yes you should get a test from your doctor. Treatment should be applied if any infection is found. After the infection is away you should regularly tested for any further infection throughout your pregnancy.. How do you treat a Urinary Infection in pregnancy?. Your doctor will prescribe an antibiotic that is safe for pregnant women to take. You can help by drinking plenty of water as this will help flush the infection out of the body..

RESULTS: Of the 169 clinics personnel at 59 (35%) responded to the survey. Almost half of the respondents had an established protocol or standard of care. At most clinics the use of ultrasound (93%), voiding cystourethrograms (85%) and urodynamic testing (76%) was supported but not renal isotopic studies (14%) or excretory urograms (2%) for baseline evaluation. At all clinics ultrasound was supported for routine surveillance but there was no consensus for other imaging modalities. Assessment of clinic approaches to the evaluation and management of bacteriuria demonstrated variable results, although at most clinics fever, flank pain, dysuria, and changes in urinary pattern were identified as being consistent with true infection. Groups at clinics following their protocol or standard of care showed no significant differences in their approach compared to those at clinics lacking a protocol or standard of care ...

Q After two years of antibiotics, I was told my urinary tract infection, due to Enterococcus, is incurable. What will happen? Kidney failure? A Do you have symptoms of urinary tract infection, like pain on urinating, increased number of urinations, fever or flank pain? If the answer is no, you have asymptomatic (no symptoms) bacteriuria (bacteria in the urine). At older ages, asymptomatic bacteriuria often requires no treatment. No kidney damage occurs.. If the answer is yes, then it is time to see a specialist in infectious diseases. The Enterococcus bacterium can be difficult to treat and often develops resistance to antibiotics, especially if a person has taken them for a prolonged time. The specialist might suggest less frequently used antibiotics or a combination of antibiotics. I think you have what I mentioned in the first paragraph.. Write to P.O.

LOPARDO, Horacio Angel y PINHEIRO, Jose Luis. Comparison between the observation of white blood cells from centrifuged urine smear and the Neubauer chamber. Acta bioquím. clín. latinoam. [online]. 2008, vol.42, n.1, pp. 47-51. ISSN 1851-6114.. The current method of centrifuged urine smear was compared to the Neubauer chamber method, using this technique as the gold standard. Their predictive ability for detecting significant bacteriuria was determined. During two months, 2.287 urine cultures were studied. Only 1.153 were evaluable. In 982 samples a comparison between the two microscopic methods could be established. The correlation between them was 96,4%. The sensitivity of the centrifuged urine smear and the Neubauer chamber method was 53.5% and 55.5% respectively. Specificities were 90.7% and 91.4%. Those results pointed out that seeing a significant number of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) both in the centrifuged urine smear and in the Neubauer chamber was predictive of significant ...
A composition, an analytical element and a method for the detection of bacteria in specimen samples, e.g. biological fluids, are disclosed. The composition optionally, but preferably, comprises a metabolizable substrate (e.g. glucose) and a benzindole dye which undergoes a detectable color change when incubated in admixture with a bacterial microorganism. Useful dyes include particular benz[cd]indole, benz[e]indole and benz[g]indole compounds. The described analytical element contains this composition, preferably, in a spreading zone. Detection of bacteria can be accomplished by bringing the composition or element into contact with a specimen sample. This invention is particularly useful in detection of significant bacteriuria.
Background/Objective: The objective was to establish the characteristics of antenatal attendees in Faith Medical Centre, a private health facility in Benin City who have asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) as well as to determine the relationship between ASB and socioeconomic status. Methods: It was a descriptive, cross-sectional study involving 240 pregnant women who presented in the course of antenatal care from January to April 2009. With the aid of a questionnaire patients who were recruited for the study had their socio-demographic data and relevant gynecological and drug history recorded. A physical examination was done to document temperature, height, weight and symphysiofundal height. A clean-catch midstream urine sample was collected for microscopy and culture. White blood cell count of≥5/hpf and/or bacteria count of≥1/hpf of urine was considered significant for urine microscopy and a single colony count of ≥105/ml from two consecutive urine samples was considered significant for urine ...
Antibiotics are substances that possess bacteriostatic or bactericidal effect. Their administration is widespread in the treatment as well as in the prevention of many infections in general population, and especially in vulnerable groups. Respiratory and urinary infections are the most common infections in the elderly. The initial empirical antibiotic therapy of pneumonia in older patients is directed to possible causative agents. Doxicicline is most frequently applied in ambulatory patients, followed by macrolides (azithromycin), fluorochinolone and amoxicillin with clavulanic acid. In the hospitalized patients, a wide spectrum of cephalosporins with macrolides is applied, as well as beta-lactamase inhibitors combined with macrolides or fluorochinolone only. Asymptomatic bacteriuria, a very common phenomenon in the elderly, is usually not treated. The antibiotic therapy of urinary infection in the older population is applied according to the causative agent. Polymicrobial infections occur in 30% of the
Pyroluria is characterized by elevated urine kryptopyrrole levels, which result in a dramatic deficiency of zinc and vitamin B6. A high kryptopyrrole result is also known as pyroluria, pyrrole disorder, or elevated pyrroles. If you do not have a practitioner that will order this testing for you, you can order this test directly through our website.. Our laboratory will provide you with the most accurate kryptopyrrole result on the market. We are the only laboratory in the U.S.A. that provides a corrected kryptopyrrole result. Our corrected result accounts for the concentration or dilution of the urine specimen. For example, if the patient has consumed a large amount of water prior to collection, the pyrrole levels will be lower in the initial result. This is due to the fact that the specimen is diluted. DHA Laboratory performs a validated procedure that calculates the level of dilution. Our procedure allows us to compensate for dilution (or concentration) in the corrected result. This allows our ...

The study found significant infected females so as to plan its treatment strategy differences (42.0 vs. 34.0, P,0.05) in prevalence of based on etiologic agent. The study showed that significant bacteriuria among HIV seropositive and overall prevalence of significant bacteriuria was HIV seronegative females (controls). This present 38.0%. The higher incidence found in these females finding agrees favourably with the fact that may not be unconnected to the general increased risk uropathogens causing UTIs are not higher in HIV of women to acquiring urinary tract infection (Samuel seropositive individuals than HIV seronegative et al., 2012). This is due to the anatomical structure of individuals as reported in our previous study (Frank- the female genital tract that makes them susceptible to ...
OBJECTIVE: To assess the usefulness of laboratory parameters, including peripheral white blood cell (WBC) count, C-reactive protein (CRP) concentration, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and microscopic urinalysis (UA), for identifying febrile infants younger than 8 weeks of age at risk for urinary tract infection (UTI), and comparison of standard UA and hemocytometer WBC counts for predicting the presence of UTI.. METHODS: A total of 162 febrile children ,8 weeks of age were enrolled in this prospective study. All underwent clinical evaluation and laboratory investigation, including WBC count and differential; ESR; CRP; blood culture; a lumbar puncture for cell count and differential, glucose level, protein level, Gram stain, and culture; and a UA and urine culture. All urine specimens were obtained by suprapubic aspiration and microscopically analyzed with standard UA as well as with hemocytometer WBC counts. Quantitative urine cultures were performed.

OBJECTIVE: To assess urinary symptoms associated with urinary tract infection (UTI) in a urogynecologic population of women. METHODS: In this cohort study, we enrolled 150 urogynecologic patients who completed the validated UTI Symptom Assessment questionnaire and contributed transurethral catheterized urine samples. The primary measure (UTI diagnosis) was defined in three ways. Self-report (a nonculture-based UTI diagnosis) was defined by a yes or no response to the query Do you think you have a UTI? Two culture-based UTI diagnoses also were analyzed: standard urine culture (10 colony-forming units [CFU]/mL or greater) and enhanced quantitative urine culture (10 CFU/mL or greater) of any uropathogen ...
The role of Diabetes mellitus (DM) in the etiology and in the antimicrobial resistance of uropathogens in patients with urinary tract infection has not been well clarified. For this reason we have evaluated the spectrum of uropathogens and the profile of antibiotic resistance in both diabetic and non diabetic patients with asymptomatic urinary tract infection (UTI). Urinary isolates and their patterns of susceptibility to the antimicrobials were evaluated in 346 diabetics (229 females and 117 males) and 975 non diabetics (679 females and 296 males) who were screened for significant bacteriuria (≥105 CFU/mL urine). The mean age of diabetic and non diabetic patients was respectively 73.7 yrs ± 15 S.D. and 72.7 ± 24 (p = NS). Most of our patients had asymptomatic UTI. The most frequent causative organisms of bacteriuria in females with and without DM were respectively : E. coli 54.1% vs 58.2% (p = NS), Enterococcus spp 8.3% vs 6.5% (p = NS), Pseudomonas spp 3.9 vs 4.7% (p = NS).

Secure and generous midstream MLP yields are predicated on a tollbooth business model, with distributable cash flow, or DCF, protected by long-term, mainly fixed-fee contracts. Indeed, 95% of EnLink Midstream Partners gross margin is fee-based. However, that doesnt necessarily make its DCF immune from plunging commodity prices.. Low energy prices mean that oil and gas producers are slashing spending, and 2016s production is likely to decline. This creates secondary commodity volume risk to various midstream MLPs, including EnLink Midstream, Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP), and Enable Midstream Partners. Now, EnLink Midstream does have 80% of its cash flow secured by minimum volume commitments. or MVCs. This mark compares favorably with Energy Transfer Partners and Enable Midstream Partners, which have only 51% and 53% of their respective volumes and margin protected in this manner. In fact, Energy Transfer Partners hidden volume exposure to energy prices is a major reason its DCF per ...

BACKGROUND: Inappropriate antibiotic treatments for urinary tract infections (UTIs) in nursing homes cause the development of resistant bacteria. Nonspecific symptoms and asymptomatic bacteriuria are drivers of overtreatment. Nursing home staff provide general practice with information about ailing residents; therefore, their knowledge and communication skills influence prescribing. This paper describes the development of a tailored, complex intervention for a cluster-randomised trial that targets the knowledge of UTI and communication skills in nursing home staff to reduce antibiotic prescriptions.. METHODS: A dialogue tool was drafted, drawing on participatory observations in nursing homes, interviews with stakeholders, and a survey in general practice. The tool was tailored through a five-phase process that included stakeholders. Finally, the tool and a case-based educational session were tested in a pilot study.. RESULTS: The main barriers were that complex patients were evaluated by ...
