  • Reverse-transcription-PCR (RT-PCR) is the most commonly used detection tool for sapovirus because of its broad reactivity, sensitivity, speed, and specificity. (wikipedia.org)
  • soil
  • Our research examined the possible modification of microbial communities within the soil due to the presence of a commonly used antibacterial agent, triclosan. (confex.com)
  • We examined the impact of triclosan on soil microbial communities using soil filled columns irrigated with solutions of known composition. (confex.com)
  • The change in microbial community structure could influence microbial soil processes such as nutrient cycling. (confex.com)
  • susceptible
  • The study experimented with the Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilms and found that a disruption of relA and spoT genes produced an inactivation of the Stringent response (SR) in cells with nutrient limitation, which provides cells be more susceptible to antibiotics. (wikipedia.org)
  • pathogens
  • In view of these problems the current work aims to characterize the microbial pathogens in selected spoiled food samples followed by their identification. (dnares.in)
  • Once the bacterial pathogens are identified, the study was extended towards the screening of the antibiotics that are capable of inhibiting the growth of these pathogens. (dnares.in)
  • Microbial pathogens in food cause an estimated 6.5-33 million cases of human illness and up to 9,000 deaths in the United States each year . (dnares.in)
  • infection
  • A rapid strep test may assist a clinician in deciding whether to prescribe an antibiotic to a person with pharyngitis, a common infection of the throat. (wikipedia.org)
  • The symptoms of viral and bacterial infection may be indistinguishable, but only bacterial pharyngitis can be effectively treated by antibiotics. (wikipedia.org)
  • By helping to identify bacterial infection, RSTs may help to limit the use of antibiotics in viral illnesses, where they are not beneficial. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although an RST cannot distinguish GAS infection from asymptomatic carriage of the organism, most authorities recommend antibiotic treatment in the event of a positive RST result from a person with a sore throat. (wikipedia.org)
  • Selective pressure is thought to play an important role, and use of beta-lactam antibiotics has been implicated as a risk factor for infection and colonization. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sapovirus cannot be treated with antibiotics because it is not a bacterial infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • strains
  • Evidence for antagonism of sponge-derived Salinispora against sponge-derived Mycobacterium strains from the same sponge specimen and the production of antimycobacterial antibiotics by this Salinispora strain suggest that the synthesis of such antibiotics may have functions in competition between sponge microbial community members.

  • patients
  • Diagnostic test using the breath of patients look for metabolites excreted that were manufactured by the infectious microorganism. (wikipedia.org)
  • H. pylori is tested by testing patients for CO2 concentration, increased because of the organism's ability to convert urea into other derivatives. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another study also compared the microbial content of pus obtained from patients with Ludwig's angina and from patients without Ludwig's angina. (wikipedia.org)
  • Specifically, the presence of nitrite and white blood cells on a urine test strip in patients with typical symptoms are sufficient for the diagnosis of pyelonephritis, and are an indication for empirical treatment. (wikipedia.org)
