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

Aim of the study: Safety is one of the most important measures to be considered in professional health care. Some survey identifies the hands of health care employees as the root cause of 20 to 40 % of the hospital infections. Purpose of study is to determine the level of compliance to the hand hygiene
Aim: This research investigates the antibacterial activities of methanol extracts from six Cameroonian edible plants and their synergistic effects with some commonly used antibiotics against multidrug-resistant (MDR) Gram-negative bacteria expressing active efflux pumps. Material and method: The plant materials included P. guajava; leaves and bark of P. americana and nuts of C. edulis. The major
Context: In the early 2000s, the resistance to critically important antimicrobials (CIAs) for some human diseases emerged in bacteria isolated from food-producing animals, including cattle. Calves, which are particularly susceptible to digestive diseases, are considered as a reservoir of Enterobacteriacae carrying antimicrobial resistance (AMR) determinants. In March 2016, the French animal health authorities have enacted
ABSTRACT Aim and purpose: Plants are considered as a worthy source of effective antimicrobial drugs. Therefore can serve as a pre-requisite for the discovery of new active components. Bidens biternata, Caralluma tuberculate, Cedrela serrata, Myrsine africana, Berginia ciliate, Paeonia emodi and Aconitum heterophyllum are important ethnomedicinal plants of Pakistan. The present study is aimed to
