  • species
  • Results for Enterococcus faecium were similar for vancomycin and linezolid but this species was generally more resistant to ampicillin. (oup.com)
  • With VRE emerging as a global threat to public health, we aimed to isolate, identify enterococci species from tilapia and their resistance to van -mediated glycopeptide ( van A and van C) as well as the presence of enterococcal surface protein ( esp ) using conventional and molecular methods. (frontiersin.org)
  • A variety of Bacillus species have been shown to form biofilms on metal surfaces and produce elaborated multicellular communities that display conspicuous architectural features [ 8 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • anti-biofilm
  • Synthesis and biological evaluation of 2-aminoimadazole/carbamate hybrid anti-biofilm and anti-microbial agents. (freepatentsonline.com)
  • To circumvent the major challenges associated with discovery of new antimicrobials, we have screened a library of compounds that are commercially available and approved by the FDA (Prestwick Chemical Library) against P. aeruginosa for effective antimicrobial and anti-biofilm activity. (frontiersin.org)
  • Microbiology
  • Readers will find a major collection of knowledge, approaches, methods and discussions on the latest advances and challenges in applied microbiology in a compilation of 136 chapters written by active researchers in the field from around the world. (booksiread.org)
  • Pseudomonas
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen that is commonly found in soil and can survive in several niches inside hospitals. (frontiersin.org)
  • aeruginosa
  • Of these, five combinations that showed synergism were down-selected and tested against preformed biofilms of P. aeruginosa . (frontiersin.org)
  • Two of the five combinations were active against preformed biofilms of both laboratory and clinical strain of P. aeruginosa , resulting in a 2-log reduction in culturable cells. (frontiersin.org)
  • Furthermore, in flow cell biofilm studies, combinations of low, subinhibitory levels of the peptide (0.8 μg/ml) and ciprofloxacin (40 ng/ml) decreased dispersal and triggered cell death in mature P. aeruginosa biofilms. (nih.gov)
  • In addition, short-term treatments with the peptide in combination with ciprofloxacin prevented biofilm formation and reduced P. aeruginosa PA14 preexisting biofilms. (nih.gov)
  • MRSA
  • The team found one, a small molecule called RNPA1000, that brings MRSA nearly to a standstill. (rochester.edu)
  • soil
  • Although occasionally it has been found in environmental soil and water samples, its natural habitat is still not known. (wikipedia.org)
  • hospital
  • The authors speculated about this being an explanation to an increase of E. faecium infections, indicating that alternate methods are required to slow the spread of E. faecium in a hospital setting. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lebreton F, Manson AL, Saavedra JT, Straub TJ, Earl AM, Gilmore MS (2017) Tracing the Enterococci from Paleozoic origins to the hospital. (wikipedia.org)
  • concentrations
  • Though they are not capable of forming spores, enterococci are tolerant of a wide range of environmental conditions: extreme temperature (10-45 °C), pH (4.5-10.0), and high sodium chloride concentrations. (wikipedia.org)
  • diseases
  • Clinical diseases manifest from biofilm-associated infections on indwelling medical devices (e.g., orthopedic implants), venous and urinary catheters, and damaged heart valves ( 3 ). (asm.org)
  • form
  • The team evaluated EFDG1's efficacy against E. faecaliscells both in a liquid culture and in biofilm form. (sci-tech-today.com)
  • By creating biofilms, bacteria can form colonies almost anywhere, including in the human body and on implanted medical devices. (businesswire.com)
  • study
  • A study published in 2018 showed multi drug-resistant E. faecium exhibiting tolerance to alcohol-based solutions. (wikipedia.org)
  • development
  • There is increasing evidence suggesting that biofilm populations also activate distinct mechanisms of resistance during biofilm development. (asm.org)
  • although
  • Although occasionally it has been found in environmental soil and water samples, its natural habitat is still not known. (wikipedia.org)
