  • isolates
  • Researchers from the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals studying Staphylococcus pseudintermedius , the predominant dog skin pathogen, showed for the first time that resistance is increasing to the most clinically relevant antimicrobials.Results from a large longitudinal retrospective survey including over 14,500 bacterial isolates from two UK laboratories showed a trend of increasing resistance over the 10-year period.

  • The analysis of the staphylococcal population composition of healthy cats and dogs revealed that S. pseudintermedius was present in 27 % (70/256) of healthy dogs and 3 % (8/277) of healthy cats, whereas S. felis was isolated only from cats and represented 31 % of their coagulase-negative staphylococcal isolates.

  • bacterial
  • Reversible association between pradofloxacin and DNA gyrase or DNA topoisomerase IV in the target bacteria results in inhibition of these enzymes and rapid death of the bacterial cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • strains
  • However, although a relevant proportion of pets and nursing home residents was found to be carrier of MDR staphylococci, the residents had no increased risk of being carriers of these strains when living in homes with pets or having contact with these animals at least once a week. (unibas.ch)
  • sessile
  • complex, sessile communities of bacteria embedded in an organic polymer matrix . (nih.gov)
  • We propose that the bacteriostatic activity of clarithromycin is accentuated when fosfoymcin is present, as it may allow better penetration into the biofilm matrix, allowing fosfomycin access to sessile bacteria near the surface of attachment. (biomedcentral.com)
  • orbifloxacin
  • ORBAX ® (orbifloxacin) Tablets are indicated for the management of diseases in dogs and cats associated with bacteria susceptible to orbifloxacin. (drugs.com)
  • infection
  • However, Staphylococcus is not capitalized or italicized when used in adjectival forms, as in a staphylococcal infection, or as the informal plural (staphylococci). (wikipedia.org)
  • A hot spot can manifest and spread rapidly in a matter of hours as secondary Staphylococcus infection causes the top layers of the skin to break down and as pus becomes trapped in the hair. (wikipedia.org)
  • resistance
  • 1996) that had indicated a stable, predictable resistance pattern for S. pseudintermedius from dogs during the 1980s and 1990s. (rvc.ac.uk)
  • Regarding resistance mechanisms, only one QRDR mutation in gyrA was found in all of the 10 mutants of E. coli and in 4 of the 10 mutants of P. aeruginosa , whereas mutations in both grlA and gyrA were found in 3 mutants and one mutation in grlA was found in 2 mutants among the 10 mutants of S. pseudintermedius .

  • Micrococcaceae
  • Ættkvíslinni Staphylococcus var áður skipað í ættina Micrococcaceae en hefur nú verið skipað í ættina Staphylococcaceae innan fylkingarinnar Firmicutes en míkrókokkarnir teljast býsna fjarskyldir (eru í fylkingunni Actinobacteria ). (wikipedia.org)
  • dogs
  • Between March 2008 and December 2009 I collected nasal swabs from 978 people and nasal and ear swabs from 256 dogs and 277 cats and checked them for the presence of staphylococci. (unibas.ch)
  • results
  • Results: Rapid and reliable identification of staphylococci by matrix assisted laser desorption ionisation - time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) was a pre-requisite to understand the distribution of Staphylococcus spp. (unibas.ch)
  • important
  • One of the most important phenotypical features used in the classification of staphylococci is their ability to produce coagulase, an enzyme that causes blood clot formation. (wikipedia.org)
