  • bleach
  • The dormant bulb which is to be twin-scaled has its surface sterilized by removing its dry tunic and carefully trimming off its roots and any dead tissue, while leaving a layer of sound basal plate intact, then dipping the clean bulb in dilute bleach (or another suitable disinfectant). (wikipedia.org)
  • bacteria
  • These disinfectants are great at reducing bacteria, but they are very harsh on the wound and can inhibit healing. (prweb.com)
  • Bacterial endospores are most resistant to disinfectants, but some viruses and bacteria also possess some tolerance. (wikipedia.org)
  • Polyhexamethylene guanidine (PHMG) is a guanidine derivative that is used as a biocidal disinfectant, often in the form of its salt polyhexamethylene guanidine phosphate (PHMG-P). Studies have shown that PHMG in solution has fungicidal as well as bactericidal activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. (wikipedia.org)
  • Infection
  • For example, pulmonary tuberculosis is often a primary infection, but an infection that happened only because a burn or penetrating trauma (the root cause) allowed unusual access to deep tissues is a secondary infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • Infection from surgery was reduced by the introduction of sterile techniques and disinfectants. (wikipedia.org)
  • Practices which reduce the likelihood of spreading infection include encouraging hand washing in all present, providing facial tissue to cover sneezes, doing food preparation in a place separate from other activity, cleaning and using a disinfectant on surfaces people touch, and among groups using diapers, having good practices to change and dispose of diapers while cleaning children and the changing area. (wikipedia.org)
  • Papules that begin as small "spouts" can be treated with Dakins Solution to prevent infection and wound clusters also benefit from this disinfectant. (wikipedia.org)
  • Disinfection
  • Although glycols are effective air disinfectants in controlled laboratory environments, it is more difficult to use them effectively in real-world environments because the disinfection of air is sensitive to continuous action. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tissue or biofilm remnants along such un-instrumented recesses may lead to failure due to both inadequate disinfection and the inability to properly obturate the root-canal space. (wikipedia.org)
  • ulcers
  • Heroin users who lose venous access may resort to 'skin popping', or injecting the drug subcutaneously, which is highly damaging to tissue and frequently leads to chronic ulcers. (wikipedia.org)
  • help
  • a supply of over-the-counter medicines, alcohol-based hand rubs, tissues and other related items might be useful and help avoid the need to make trips out in public while you are sick and contagious. (creighton.edu)
  • wide
  • Some disinfectants have a wide spectrum (kill many different types of microorganisms), while others kill a smaller range of disease-causing organisms but are preferred for other properties (they may be non-corrosive, non-toxic, or inexpensive). (wikipedia.org)
  • household
  • Most modern household disinfectants contain Bitrex, an exceptionally bitter substance added to discourage ingestion, as a safety measure. (wikipedia.org)
  • PHMG was used in Russia to disinfect hospitals and from 2001 on, it was widely used in South Korea as a disinfectant to prevent microbial contamination in household humidifiers. (wikipedia.org)
  • cell
  • Cancer, especially squamous cell carcinoma, may also form as the result of chronic wounds, probably due to repetitive tissue damage that stimulates rapid cell proliferation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Disinfectants work by destroying the cell wall of microbes or interfering with the metabolism. (wikipedia.org)
  • often
  • When PHMG is aerosolized and inhaled, it harms the lungs, causing death of the cells lining the bronchioles and widespread damage to alveoli, along with bronchiolitis obliterans, an often fatal form of non-reversible obstructive lung disease in which the bronchiole are compressed and narrowed by fibrosis (scar tissue) and/or inflammation. (wikipedia.org)
  • form
  • A perfect disinfectant would also offer complete and full microbiological sterilisation, without harming humans and useful form of life, be inexpensive, and noncorrosive. (wikipedia.org)
  • high
  • In principle, these chemical substances are ideal air disinfectants because they have both high lethality to microorganisms and low mammalian toxicity. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • Formaldehyde or glutaraldehyde fixes tissue or cells by irreversibly connecting a primary amine group in a protein molecule with a nearby nitrogen in a protein or DNA molecule through a -CH2- linkage called a Schiff base. (wikipedia.org)
  • surfaces
  • In food service and water distribution, specialized equipment to generate weak solutions of HClO from water and salt is sometimes used to generate adequate quantities of safe (unstable) disinfectant to treat food preparation surfaces and water supplies. (wikipedia.org)
  • Initial
  • Viral antigen is especially concentrated in lymphoid tissues (Fig. 3A, B). Many pigs, irrespective of age or sex, have a transient, usually mild, leukopenia sometime within 10 days after initial exposure to the virus. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • Early in the course of the disease, histological analysis of cells from the tonsils, nasal tissue, or nictitating membrane (third eyelid) may show inclusion bodies (a collection of viral particles) within the nucleus of infected cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • plants
  • Jain scriptures describe nigodas which are sub-microscopic creatures living in large clusters and having a very short life, said to pervade every part of the universe, even in tissues of plants and flesh of animals. (wikipedia.org)
  • human
  • The primary method of action is to denature the cell walls of single-cell organisms, such as fungus, bacteria, viruses, and spores, but leave multicellular organisms (such as human tissue) alone. (wikipedia.org)
  • After 72 hours, MRSA can take hold in human tissues and eventually become resistant to treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • stage
  • Small flash fires can occur in the operating room during surgery where the presence of ignition sources such as electrical instruments or lasers, an oxygen-rich environment, and flammable vapors (e.g. alcohol-based disinfectants) may set the stage for such an accident. (wikipedia.org)
