Aim/purpose To examine the contribution of a Resistance-Nodulation-Division (RND) efflux pump to resistance to various antimicrobial agents tested in B. thailandensis and adapt a flow cytometry-assisted susceptibility test (FAST) for the species. Materials and methods The mutagenesis experiment comprised several stages. Firstly, flanking regions of the chosen RND efflux pump, BpeAB-OprB, were amplified using PCR,

In this case, the process of development of the Barrett’s esophagus and the development of adenocarcinoma as a complication of this disease with involvement of lymphoid tissue with the formation of follicles of different types was studied. Barrett’s esophagus (BE) is a precursor of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus, a disease with a growing burden in
Aim: Antimicrobial resistance presents a growing concern worldwide. Medical students are potential antimicrobial prescribers and stewards following graduation as doctors. The aim of this study was to assess the knowledge regarding antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and antibiotic use among pre-final year and final year medical school students of Ebonyi State University, Nigeria. Materials and Methods: A
Emerging diseases are often the product of a host shift, which occurs when a parasite jumps from its original host and into a novel host species. Shifts in host range have caused major epidemics in humans and other animals, such as HIV, the Spanish flu, and Ebola. Our research group identified the original host ranges
