Most of type O4 and O6 strains possessed such virulence factors as pil, pap, sfa, hly, and cnf1, while most type O11 and O102 strains pil only or pil and aer. All strains of type O75 possessed afaI and aer. K1 antigen was negative in all strains obtained from UTI.  (+info)

Correlation of periurethral bacterial flora with bacteriuria and urinary tract infection in children with neurogenic bladder receiving intermittent catheterization. (2/2804)

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)

IL-8 is a major human neutrophil chemoattractant at mucosal infection sites. This study examined the C-X-C chemokine response to mucosal infection, and, specifically, the role of macrophage inflammatory protein (MIP)-2, one of the mouse IL-8 equivalents, for neutrophil-epithelial interactions. Following intravesical Escherichia coli infection, several C-X-C chemokines were secreted into the urine, but only MIP-2 concentrations correlated to neutrophil numbers. Tissue quantitation demonstrated that kidney MIP-2 production was triggered by infection, and immunohistochemistry identified the kidney epithelium as a main source of MIP-2. Treatment with anti-MIP-2 Ab reduced the urine neutrophil numbers, but the mice had normal tissue neutrophil levels. By immunohistochemistry, the neutrophils were found in aggregates under the pelvic epithelium, but in control mice the neutrophils crossed the urothelium into the urine. The results demonstrate that different chemokines direct neutrophil migration from the bloodstream to the lamina propria and across the epithelium and that MIP-2 serves the latter function. These findings suggest that neutrophils cross epithelial cell barriers in a highly regulated manner in response to chemokines elaborated at this site. This is yet another mechanism that defines the mucosal compartment and differentiates the local from the systemic host response.  (+info)

Isolation of Enterococcus faecalis clinical isolates that efficiently adhere to human bladder carcinoma T24 cells and inhibition of adhesion by fibronectin and trypsin treatment. (4/2804)

The adherence of Enterococcus faecalis strains to human T24 cells was examined by scanning electron microscopy. Five highly adhesive strains were identified from 30 strains isolated from the urine of patients with urinary tract infections. No efficiently adhesive strains were found among the 30 strains isolated from the feces of healthy students. The five isolated strains also adhered efficiently to human bladder epithelial cells. Analysis of restriction endonuclease-digested plasmid DNAs and chromosome DNAs showed that the five strains were different strains isolated from different patients. The adhesiveness of these strains was inhibited by treatment with fibronectin or trypsin, implying that a specific protein (adhesin) on the bacterial cell surface mediates adherence to fibronectin on the host cell surfaces, and the adhesin differs from the reported adhesins.  (+info)

Value of cystography in urinary tract infections. (6/2804)

Fifty-one children with a bacteriologically proven urinary tract infection had both an intravenous urogram (IVU) and a micturating cystogram. The IVU was normal in 35. Only 6 of these children showed reflux in the cystogram, affecting 7 of the 70 ureters at risk. Since reflux on its own does not cause renal damage, which occurs only with super-added infection, detection of reflux is not important providing the urine is kept sterile. We suggest that cystography be deferred providing the IVU is normal until recurrent infections occur while under hospital care, and, with this policy this unpleasant and sometimes hazardous investigation could be avoided in many children with a single urinary tract infection.  (+info)

Urinary tract infections in adults. (7/2804)

Urinary tract infections remain a significant cause of morbidity in all age groups. Recent studies have helped to better define the population groups at risk for these infections, as well as the most cost-effective management strategies. Initially, a urinary tract infection should be categorized as complicated or uncomplicated. Further categorization of the infection by clinical syndrome and by host (i.e., acute cystitis in young women, acute pyelonephritis, catheter-related infection, infection in men, asymptomatic bacteriuria in the elderly) helps the physician determine the appropriate diagnostic and management strategies. Uncomplicated urinary tract infections are caused by a predictable group of susceptible organisms. These infections can be empirically treated without the need for urine cultures. The most effective therapy for an uncomplicated infection is a three-day course of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole. Complicated infections are diagnosed by quantitative urine cultures and require a more prolonged course of therapy. Asymptomatic bacteriuria rarely requires treatment and is not associated with increased morbidity in elderly patients.  (+info)

Renal stones and urinary infection: a study of antibiotic treatment. (8/2804)

Twenty-two patients in whom renal calculi and urinary infection were closely associated were studied over two to five years. Four patients had previously had stones surgically removed, and five underwent pyelolithotomy during the course of the study. Urinary infection was treated with an appropriate antibacterial agent, and treatment was followed by long-term prophylaxis, usually with cotrimoxazole. A sterile urine was maintained for long periods in all these patients. In four patients, however, apparent stone growth occurred while the urine was sterile. On entering the study 21 of the 22 patients complained of symptoms. After treatment 19 of the 20 patients who were still attending were symptom-free. Six of the 22 patients entered the study with raised levels of serum creatinine; levels fell in four and remained raised in two. This antibacterial regimen, either alone or after surgery, will usually relieve symptoms and may prevent deterioration of renal function.  (+info)

Cathelicidin (LL-37) and human β-defensin 1 (hBD-1) are important components of the innate defense in the urinary tract. The aim of this study was to characterize whether these peptides are important for developing uncomplicated Escherichia coli urinary tract infections (UTIs). This was investigated by comparing urinary peptide levels of UTI patients during and after infection to those of controls, as well as characterizing the fecal flora of participants with respect to susceptibility to LL-37 and in vivo virulence. Forty-seven UTI patients and 50 controls who had never had a UTI were included. Participants were otherwise healthy, premenopausal, adult women. LL-37 MIC levels were compared for fecal E. coli clones from patients and controls and were also compared based on phylotypes (A, B1, B2, and D). In vivo virulence was investigated in the murine UTI model by use of selected fecal isolates from patients and controls. On average, UTI patients had significantly more LL-37 in urine during ...

PY - 2010. Y1 - 2010. N2 - We agree with Kallen that urinary tract malformation, not urinary tract infection, may lead to kidney disease. We are interested in the attempt to reframe our objectives. More than 10 years ago, our primary aim and our design were to determine whether symptomatic urinary tract infection is prevented with prophylactic antibiotics. This goal remains as clinically important now as in 1998. We are surprised at the implication that the prevention of symptomatic urinary tract infection is not a worthwhile outcome from the perspective of the child and family. In our experience, families want to prevent further urinary tract infections. A reference to one anonymous review article provides insufficient evidence that trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole should not be used for this indication, ...

Is it really a urinary tract infection? Differential diagnoses include common genital infections (such as sexually transmitted infections and Candida vulvovaginitis), non-infective cystitis (caused by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and other drugs), and urethral syndrome (a complex of symptoms that indicate a urinary tract infection but without an underlying infection).. Type of urinary tract infection Symptoms that indicate a lower urinary tract infection are discomfort on urination, increased frequency of urination, urgency, and a change in the smell of the urine. Symptoms that indicate an upper urinary tract infection are a high temperature, pain in the loin, nausea, vomiting, and rigors.. History When was the last infection? Recurrent episodes of urinary tract infection may be a relapse of illness (defined as recurrence of infection by the same species within two weeks) or reinfection.. Predisposing factors Renal problems (such as hydro-nephrosis), bladder problems (such as atonic ...
While urinary tract infections are more common in women, urinary tract infections affect men as well. The numbers for urinary tract infections in men and women are heavily skewed towards women, but urinary tract infections are common in men over the age of 50. In addition to age, there are several factors that can increase the risk of urinary tract infections in the men of Bethesda, some of which include an enlarged prostate, kidney stones, catheter usage, and diabetes. Urinary tract infection symptoms are similar to those of a bladder infection, making seeking medical attention extremely important.

OBJECTIVE To verify the role of proton pump inhibitors (PPI) and nitrofurantoin, which have appeared as novel risk factors for carriage of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) -producing Escherichia coli, as risk factors for ESBL E. coli urinary tract infection (UTI). We included known risk factors to ascertain whether our findings are comparable with those of previous studies. METHODS Population-based case-control study including 339 cases with community-onset ESBL E. coli UTI in 2007-2012, 3390 non-ESBL E. coli UTI controls and 3390 population controls. We investigated potential risk factors by estimating ORs and 95% CIs adjusting for sex, age and co-morbidity. RESULTS Comparing cases with non-ESBL E. coli UTI, PPI use yielded an OR of 1.6 (95% CI 1.2-2.0) and antibiotic exposure gave an OR of 1.4 (95% CI 1.1-1.8); these were driven by nitrofurantoin (OR 1.8; 95% CI 1.3-2.6) and macrolides (OR 1.7; 95% CI 1.2-2.3). Other risk factors included previous hospitalization with one or two and more than

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

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

Urinary tract infections are just as uncomfortable for cats as they are for people, and they get them nearly as often. Feline urinary tract infections are caused by bacteria in the bladder or urethra (the tube through which urine flows), urinary tract infections can make it very painful to urinate. And, if the infections arent caught early, they can spread upward to the kidneys, causing serious problems such as a more serious infection which can spread to the blood and cause a bacterial sepsis.. Both holistic and mainstream veterinarians treat urinary tract infections with antibiotics, but holistic vets go a little further.

Most uncomplicated urinary tract infections occur in women who are sexually active, with far fewer cases occurring in older women, those who are pregnant, and in men. Although the incidence of urinary tract infection has not changed substantially over the last 10 years, the diagnostic criteria, bacterial resistance patterns, and recommended treatment have changed. Escherichia coli is the leading cause of urinary tract infections, followed by Staphylococcus saprophyticus. Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole has been the standard therapy for urinary tract infection; however, E. coli is becoming increasingly resistant to medications. Many experts support using ciprofloxacin as an alternative and, in some cases, as the preferred first-line agent. However, others caution that widespread use of ciprofloxacin will promote increased resistance.
UTIs are most common in sexually active women and increase in diabetics and people with sickle-cell disease or anatomical malformations of the urinary tract.. Since bacteria can enter the urinary tract through the urethra (an ascending infection), poor toilet habits can predispose to infection, but other factors (pregnancy in women, prostate enlargement in men) are also important and in many cases the initiating event is unclear.. While ascending infections are generally the rule for lower urinary tract infections and cystitis, the same may not necessarily be true for upper urinary tract infections like pyelonephritis which may be hematogenous in origin.. Allergies can be a hidden factor in urinary tract infections. For example, allergies to foods can irritate the bladder wall and increase susceptibility to urinary tract infections. Keep track of your diet and have allergy testing done to help eliminate foods that may be a problem. Urinary tract infections after sexual intercourse can be also be ...
Urinary tract infections (UTI), also known as bladder infections occur when bacteria enter the urinary system and infect the surrounding bladder tissue, causing symptoms of pain, burning, fever and increased urination. If not treated immediately, a UTI can lead to permanent kidney damage. Urinary tract infections are very common in females, about 70% of women will have one urinary tract infection within their lifetime, while only 12% of men will experience one within their lifetime[1]. Some factors that contribute to this increased risk include: holding in urine, a naturally short urethra (a normal occurrence in the female urinary system), contamination during wiping, use of diaphragm or spermicidal contraceptives, sex, and pH changes within the vaginal and urinary regions. The most common treatment for urinary tract infections are antibiotics, however overuse of such medications can lead to bacterial resistance which is a much bigger problem. Imagine having so many bladder infections and ...
Between 10 and 20 percent of patients who are hospitalized receive an indwelling Foley catheter. Once this catheter is in place, the risk of bacteriuria is approximately 5 percent per day. With long-term catheterization, bacteriuria is inevitable. Catheter-associated urinary tract infections account for 40 percent of all nosocomial infections and are the most common source of gram-negative bacteremia in hospitalized patients. The diagnosis of catheter-associated urinary tract infection can be made when the urine culture shows 100 or more CFU per mL of urine from a catheterized patient. The microbiology of catheter-associated urinary tract infections includes E. coli and Proteus, Enterococcus, Pseudomonas, Enterobacter, Serratia and Candida species. The bacterial distribution reflects the nosocomial origin of the infections because so many of the uropathogens are acquired exogenously via manipulation of the catheter and drainage device. Bacteriuria is often polymicrobic, especially in patients ...

Recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI) are common in dogs compared to cats.1,2 Recurrent UTIs are classified as relapse or reinfection and these classifications have clinical implications for diagnosis and management. Relapses are defined as UTI recurrence of the same species and strain of microorganisms within several weeks of withdrawal of therapy. Reinfections are recurrent infections caused by microorganisms that are different than the prior UTI. In addition to recurrent infections, dogs with a positive urine culture despite antibiotic treatment have either a super-infection or a persistent infection. Super-infections are infections with resistant bacteria acquired during treatment of an initial UTI. Persistent infections occur when the original organism persists despite treatment.. Causes of Recurrent UTI. Common causes of a UTI relapse include inappropriate antibiotic use, persistence of the UTI within a urinary tract nidus (uroliths, neoplasia, pyelonephritis, prostatitis), and ...

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) represent the second most often observed infectious diseases in community, following the respiratory tract infections. In the United States, these infections account for up to 7 million/year of visits, with a mean yearly expense for the related antibiotic treatment that has been estimated in more than one billion dollars. In nosocomial setting, UTIs represent the most frequent diseases, whose incidence equates 40% of nosocomial infections overall considered; about 80% of UTIs is related to urinary catheterization. In the present review, the authors, after a brief introduction about epidemiology, pathogenesis and aetiology of urinary tract infections, consider two particular settings: long term care facilities, where UTIs represent the most often diagnosed and treated infections, and the Intensive Care Units where occurrence of urinary tract infections represents an especially frequent event as well. Patients referred to both these settings are particular, as they ...

Background: To assess the effect of previous antibiotic use on the risk of a resistant Escherichia coli urinary tract infection (UTI), we undertook a case-control study with prospective measurement of outcomes in 10 general practices in the UK. Methods: Urinary samples from all patients with symptoms suggestive of UTIs were sought, and those with a laboratory-proven E. coli infection were interviewed and their medical records examined. Case patients were those with ampicillin- or trimethoprim-resistant infections and control patients had infections that were susceptible to antibiotics, including ampicillin and trimethoprim. Results: Risk of ampicillin-resistant E. coli infection in 903 patients was associated with amoxicillin prescriptions of |7 days duration in the previous 1 month [odds ratio (OR) 5 3.91, 95% CI 1.64-9.34] and previous 2-3 months (2.29, 1.12-4.70) before illness onset.

Urinary tract infection - adults - Animation Using the bathroom is usually a no-brainer. You go, you flush, you wash. But sometimes, you can have a condition that makes it painful or difficult to go. If youre feeling pain or burning when you urinate, or you feel like you need to go all the time, the problem could be a urinary tract infection. Most often, you get a urinary tract infections when bacteria make their way into your bladder, kidneys, ureters, those tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder, or the urethra, the tube that carries urine to the outside of your body. Unfortunately for women, theyre more likely to get a urinary tract infection than men because they have a much shorter urethra. Bacteria can more easily slip into a womans body after they have sex or use the bathroom. Certain conditions can also increase your risk of a urinary tract infection, including diabetes, pregnancy, kidney stones, an enlarged prostate in men, as well as urinary tract surgery. You can ...

SAN DIEGO, CA - April 5, 2017 - Zavante Therapeutics, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel therapies to improve the outcomes of hospitalized patients, today announced that the companys investigational product candidate, ZOLYD™ (fosfomycin for injection, also known as ZTI-01), met the primary endpoint of statistical non-inferiority to piperacillin/tazobactam in the pivotal ZEUS™ clinical trial in patients with complicated urinary tract infections (cUTI), including acute pyelonephritis (AP). ZOLYD is a first-in-class injectable epoxide antibiotic with a differentiated mechanism of action and broad spectrum of activity against Gram-negative and Gram-positive pathogens, including multi-drug resistant (MDR) pathogens.. The ZEUS study was a multi-center, randomized, double-blind Phase 2/3 trial designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of ZOLYD in the treatment of hospitalized adults with cUTI or AP. The primary endpoint of overall success, defined as clinical cure ...
BACKGROUND: Up to 50% of hospital antibiotic use is inappropriate and therefore improvement strategies are urgently needed. We compared the effectiveness of two strategies to improve the quality of antibiotic use in patients with a complicated urinary tract infection (UTI). METHODS: In a multicentre, cluster-randomized trial 19 Dutch hospitals (departments Internal Medicine and Urology) were allocated to either a multi-faceted strategy including feedback, educational sessions, reminders and additional/optional improvement actions, or a competitive feedback strategy, i.e. providing professionals with non-anonymous comparative feedback on the departments appropriateness of antibiotic use. Retrospective baseline- and post-intervention measurements were performed in 2009 and 2012 in 50 patients per department, resulting in 1,964 and 2,027 patients respectively. Principal outcome measures were nine validated guideline-based quality indicators (QIs) that define appropriate antibiotic use in patients ...
Recurrent urinary tract infections occur in approximately 5% of adult women. It has a significant impact on the affected women's quality of life and on health care costs. It is important to be aware of the physiologically protective factors preventing urinary tract infections. The clinician should also be able to identify relevant risk factors for recurrent infection. Clinical evaluation is relatively straightforward in cases without underlying complicating factors, but urine culture ought to be readily utilised. Treatment should be according to local antibiogram patterns and prophylactic and postcoital preventative strategies can be used according to current evidence. Certain subpopulations such as HIV positive patients require a different approach compared to the general population.
Randomization of our first patient in the ZEUS study is an important clinical milestone for Zavante said Ted Schroeder, founder, president and chief executive officer of Zavante. We anticipate filing a New Drug Application, or NDA, for ZTI-01 with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration late in the second half of 2017. We are excited to introduce ZTI-01 as a new class of injectable antibiotics that we hope will be a valuable tool for physicians in the U.S. fighting serious infections including those caused by multidrug-resistant pathogens in the hospital setting.. ZEUS is the pivotal study intended to support an NDA for ZTI-01 in the U.S. The study is titled Multi-center, randomized, double-blind, comparative study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of ZTI-01 vs. piperacillin/tazobactam in the treatment of complicated urinary tract infections, including acute pyelonephritis, in hospitalized adults. More clinical trial information is available at www.clinicaltrials.gov.. About Zavante ...
Posted by Dr Michelle Chia on May 8, 2014 in Womens Health , 12 comments. What is UTI? UTI is when there is presence of significant pathogens (bacteria, yeast) in the urine in the setting of accompanying symptoms of cystitis (bladder infection) or pyelonephritis (kidney infection). UTI can be categorized into lower urinary tract infection which refers to cystitis, which represents the majority of these infections. Upper urinary tract infection refers to kidney infection. What is recurrent UTI? Recurrent UTI is when you get 2 or more infections in 6 months or 3 or more in 1 year. This is still very common in young.... read more ...
Recurrent Urinary Tract Infection - The main symptoms of cystitis are frequent urination, discomfort when urinating (dysuria) and a painful bladder. These symptoms are usually because of a urinary tract infection (UTI).
Dublin, Sept. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - The Home Diagnostics for Urinary Tract Infection Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Form Type; Distribution Channel, and Geography report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.coms offering.

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the importance of treatment duration for therapeutic efficacy of pivmecillinam for community-acquired urinary tract infections (UTIs) caused by Escherichia coli.. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted between 1 January 2010 and 30 September 2016 in adults with community-acquired E. coli bacteriuria, treated empirically with pivmecillinam. Regimens of 3, 5 and 7 days were compared using clinical treatment failure (i.e. redemption of a new antibiotic or hospitalization due to UTI) within 14 and 30 days as outcome. HR and risk difference with 95% CI were estimated for treatment failure. Results were stratified by age (18-50, 51-70, ,70 years) and sex.. RESULTS: Of the 21 864 cases of E. coli UTI that were analysed, 2524 (11.5%) were in men. In 954 cases (4.4%) E. coli produced ESBL and 125 (13.1%) of the cases were in men. The 3 day regimen increased the risk of treatment failure for all groups. The risk differences between the 3 and 5 day regimens were ,10% ...
Issues critical to health care reform in the United States involve escalating demand for producing high-quality, cost-effective, and safe health care. Inclusion of evidence-based practices (EBP) related to patient safety is vital for healthcare organizations and their patients, and nurses playa pivotal role in the translation of evidence into clinical practice. Hospital-acquired urinary tract infections are well-documented adverse events that constitute the most common type of healthcare acquired infections around the world. In spite of long-standing catheter protocols, the incidence of hospital-acquired, catheter-associated urinary tract infections remains high (CAUTI). This body of work is comprised of three separate studies that build upon one another to answer the evolving research questions. The three specific aims of this inquiry were to explore the current evidence with regard to CAUTI prevention strategies, to implement a pilot study using a urinary tract infection prevention bundle ...
In this study, antimicrobial resistance profiles were determined for 748 isolates of Escherichia coli from patients with acute nosocomial urinary tract infections (UTIs) at a Turkish Training Hospital. Thirteen antibiotics were included. Resistance to ampicillin alone (45.1%) and ciprofloxacin alone (20.6%) were the most commonly identified single resistances. Multiple resistance was found in 49.7% of the strains. The most common multiple antibiotic resistance profiles included ampicillin-sulbactam/amoxycilline-clavulonate (4.0%) and ampicillin-sulbactam/trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole/amoxycilline-clavulonate (2.8%). From 2004 to 2006, ampicillin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole and ciprofloxacin resistant strains increased to 76% from 57%, 53% from 43% and 55% from 41%, respectively. The percentage of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) producing strains was 7.8% and imipenem resistance was seen in 5.2% of ESBL positive strains. We conclude that clinically important E.coli strains have now ...
