  • phage therapy
  • He has made important contributions regarding the physical basis of transcriptional regulation in bacteria, the lysis/lysogeny switch in lambda phage, the organization of the bacterial nucleoid, and phage therapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • species
  • The arrangement of spore layers is as follows: Exosporium Spore coat Spore cortex Core wall The position of the endospore differs among bacterial species and is useful in identification. (wikipedia.org)
  • acute
  • However, for serious acute cases of pyelonephritis or bacterial prostatitis where the patient may need to be hospitalised, fluoroquinolones are recommended as first-line therapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • enzyme
  • Moxifloxacin is bactericidal and its mode of action depends on blocking of bacterial DNA replication by binding itself to an enzyme called DNA gyrase, which allows the untwisting required to replicate one DNA double helix into two. (pharmacycode.com)
  • orally
  • Carbapenems are less commonly used in the treatment of community-acquired pneumonia, as community-acquired strains of the most common responsible pathogens (Streptocuccus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenazae, atypical bacteria, and Enterobactericeace) are typically susceptible to narrower spectrum and/or orally administered agents such as fluoroquinolones, amoxicillin, or azithromycin. (wikipedia.org)
  • treat
  • When Keflex is prescribed to treat a bacterial infection, patients should be told that although it is common to feel better early in the course of therapy, the medication should be taken exactly as directed. (pharmacycode.com)
  • During World War II, the Soviet Union used bacteriophages to treat many soldiers infected with various bacterial diseases e.g. dysentery and gangrene. (wikipedia.org)
  • growth
  • Since the early steps of isoprenoid biosynthesis pathway (mevalonate kinase) in eukaryotes resemble bacterial isoprenoid biosynthesis and regarding the fact that VS inhibits the mevalonate pathway in eukaryotic organisms [ 10 ], we examined the effect of VS as a nonselective mevalonate kinase inhibitor on bacterial isoprenoid biosynthesis and its impact on bacterial growth.

  • although
  • Although the technical problem of designing a toothbrush capable of delivering dentrifice and other agents has long been recognized, no satisfactory workable system has been developed to meet this long-felt need. (google.com)
  • effect
  • Antibacterial effect of VS alone and in combination with glycine or EDTA was assessed on Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa as Gram-negative and Staphylococcus aureus and Enterococcus faecalis as Gram-positive bacteria using serial dilution method and minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) identified. (hindawi.com)
  • means
  • This disclosure fails to provide long-lasting means for release of dentrifice or other agents since the liquid dentrifice would be washed from the oral cavity with each use. (google.com)
  • activity
  • The antibacterial activity of these compounds were first tested in vitro by the disk diffusion assay against two Gram-positive and two Gram-negative bacteria, and then the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) was determined. (ovid.com)
  • In addition, the silver nanoparticles are attracting much interest because of their potent antibacterial activity. (mdpi.com)
  • Many studies have also shown an important activity of silver nanoparticles against bacterial biofilms. (mdpi.com)
  • Agents with anti-pseudomonal activity, including doripenem, imipenem, and meropenem are not recommended in this population. (wikipedia.org)
  • currently
  • This review outlines the advantages and challenges of narrow-spectrum antibacterial agents, discusses the progress that has been made toward developing diagnostics to enable their use, and describes some of the narrow-spectrum antibacterial agents currently being investigated against some of the most clinically important bacteria including Clostridium difficile , Mycobacterium tuberculosis and several ESKAPE pathogens.

  • infection
  • The main classes of antimicrobial agents are disinfectants ("nonselective antimicrobials" such as bleach), which kill a wide range of microbes on non-living surfaces to prevent the spread of illness, antiseptics (which are applied to living tissue and help reduce infection during surgery), and antibiotics (which destroy microorganisms within the body). (wikipedia.org)
  • India
  • Different parts of the plant are used in traditional medicine of India as an astringent agent, cardiac tonic, and diuretic, and is used for eczema, rheumatism, fever, and bladder stones. (wikipedia.org)
  • cardiac
  • Blocking communication between the cardiac cells with a drug called heptanol (an agent that reduces the electrical coupling between cells) causes the spiral waves to break up into even more troublesome smaller spirals. (blogspot.com)
  • overnight
  • Penicillin was discovered in 1928 when Alexander Fleming's lab assistant accidentally left a window open overnight and mold spores covered his Staphylococcus bacterial specimens in a Petri dish. (wikipedia.org)
  • drug
  • At this point, though the drug had shown success in treating numerous bacterial diseases, it was still so difficult to produce and so dilute that it was not feasible to produce quantities large enough for mass production, so an effort was begun to find a strain of Penicillium with a higher rate of production of penicillin. (wikipedia.org)
  • strategies
  • This study will evaluate new strategies for delivering anti-HIV medications to people in South Africa. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Possible strategies towards this objective include increased sampling from diverse environments and application of metagenomics to identify bioactive compounds produced by currently unknown and uncultured microorganisms as well as the development of small-molecule libraries customized for bacterial targets. (wikipedia.org)

  • since 1980 the introduction of new antimicrobial agents for clinical use has declined, in part because of the enormous expense of developing and testing new drugs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Antibacterials are among the most commonly used drugs and among the drugs commonly misused by physicians, for example, in viral respiratory tract infections. (wikipedia.org)
