  • Jonsson P, Lindberg M, Haraldsson I, Wadström T.: Staphylococcus aureus in a mouse mastitis model: studies of alpha hemolysin, coagulase and protein A as possible virulence determinants with protoplast fusion and gene cloning. (springer.com)
  • Overlapping activity with the other proteases, plus the complexity of virulence determinants and the infection site environment makes it difficult to determine the impact of the protease in pathogenesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Vancomycin
  • In vitro activity effects of combinations of cephalothin, dicloxacillin, imipenem, vancomycin and amikacin against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus spp. (wikipedia.org)
  • Oritavancin shares certain properties with other members of the glycopeptide class of antibiotics, which includes vancomycin, the current standard of care for serious Gram-positive infections in the United States and Europe. (wikipedia.org)
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Osteomyelitis of the jaws is osteomyelitis (which is infection and inflammation of the bone marrow, sometimes abbreviated to OM) which occurs in the bones of the jaws (i.e. maxilla or the mandible). (wikipedia.org)
  • Historically, osteomyelitis of the jaws was a common complication of odontogenic infection (infections of the teeth). (wikipedia.org)
  • antibiotics
  • Inevitably this has left fewer effective bactericidal antibiotics to treat these often life-threatening infections (Figure 1 ). (jci.org)
  • As rapidly as new antibiotics are introduced, staphylococci have developed efficient mechanisms to neutralize them (Table 1 ). (jci.org)
  • Using lyosptaphin to treat "Staphylococcal" biofilm associated infections may prove to be preferable to using antibiotics as it may be possible to administer the enzyme at relatively low doses and disrupt a staphylococcal bioflim, therefore eliminating the need for surgical removal of the infected device.

  • grape-like clusters
  • In medical literature, the bacterium is often referred to as S. aureus, Staph aureus or Staph A.. S. aureus appears as staphylococci (grape-like clusters) when viewed through a microscope, and has large, round, golden-yellow colonies, often with hemolysis, when grown on blood agar plates. (wikipedia.org)
  • resistant

  • Symptoms
  • Symptoms such as mild sticky eyelids, thicker margins of the eyelid, and missing eyelashes occur due to Staphylococcal blepharitis. (news-medical.net)
  • The symptoms of a Staph Infection include a collection of pus, such as a boil or furuncle, or abscess. (wikipedia.org)
  • Common symptoms of Staphylococcus aureus food poisoning include: a rapid onset which is usually 1-6 hours, nausea, explosive vomiting for up to 24 hours, abdominal cramps/pain, headache, weakness, diarrhea and usually a subnormal body temperature. (wikipedia.org)
  • These individuals often experience severe pain at the site of the skin infection, followed by rapid progression of symptoms as described above for TSS. (wikipedia.org)
  • If the infection is not controlled, the process becomes chronic and systemic symptoms are usually present, including draining fistulas, loosening of teeth and sequestra formation. (wikipedia.org)
  • cellulitis
  • Orbital cellulitis occurs commonly from bacterial infection spread via the paranasal sinuses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Upper respiratory infection, sinusitis, trauma to the eye, ocular or periocular infection and systemic infection all increase one's risk of orbital cellulitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Due to this widespread belief, empirical therapy for significant cellulitis often involves dual-therapy to cover both staphylococci and streptococci, however this has not shown to be of clinical benefit. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acute OM of the jaws may give a similar appearance to a typical odontogenic infection, but cellulitis does not tend to spread from the periosteal envelope of the involved bone. (wikipedia.org)
  • boils
  • Squeezing or cutting boils in the danger triangle of the face can be particularly dangerous if done outside a medical setting, as blood vessels in this area drain into the brain and can carry serious infections there. (wikipedia.org)
