Streptococcus Agalactiae: An Unusual Agent of Inguinal Abscess

Abdurrahman Kaya, MD, Mehtap Turfan, MD, Acar Yurtbasi Nuran, Ekrem Sezgin, MD and Sibel Yildiz Kaya

Article Type: Clinical Image | First Published: October 17, 2019

Streptococcus agalactiae (group B streptococcus; GBS) is gram-positive bacterium frequently colonized in pharynx, gastrointestinal and female genital tract. While the microorganism is also responsible for a wide range of infections which include sepsis and meningitis in newborn and chorioamnionitis and urinary tract infection in pregnant women, the incidence of invasive GBS disease has appeared to increase among non-pregnant adults and those with significant underlying conditions in the recent y...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: May 11, 2019

The object of our research is the transient probiotic strain Bacillus subtilis 534 that is a basis of the drug Sporobacterin. The strain 534 was cultivated in submerged conditions and the obtained culture liquid (CL) was investigated for antimicrobial activity by diffusion into the agar medium method. As test objects, collection strains of bacteria and fungi were used as well as clinical isolates with different resistance to antibiotics. For preliminary chemical characterization, CL was passed t...

Physicochemical and Biopharmaceutical Characterization of N-Iodomethyl-N,N-Dimethyl-N-(6,6-1 Diphenylhex-5-En-1-Yl) Ammonium Iodide and A Promising Antileishmania Delivery System

Maritza Fernandez, Luz Amalia Rios-Vasquez, Rogelio Ocampo-Cardona, Oscar Florez, David L Cedeno, Teresa M Garrigues, Antonio J Almeida, Ivan D Velez and Sara M Robledo

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 13, 2018

Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is an infectious disease endemic in tropical and subtropical countries. The current drugs have severe drawbacks that restrict their use and enhance the need for better drugs. Recently, the N-iodomethyl-N,N-dimethyl-N-(6,6-diphenylhex-5-en-1-yl) ammonium iodide (C6I) was identified as a promising compound for the topical treatment of CL. The need for oral drugs with potential use to treat cutaneous, mucosal and visceral leishmaniasis, in the present work were determin...

Streptococcus salivarius Meningitis in Immunocompetent: A Case Report

Abdelrahman M Elsawy, Hani S Faidah and Elrashdy M Redwan

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 08, 2018

Streptococcus salivarius (S. salivarius) is a rare cause of purulent meningitis. We report a case of meningitis due to S. salivarius in 15-years-old Sudanese boy. Diagnosis was established based on Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) findings. The patient responded well to systemic antibiotics and recovered completely without any neurological complications after proper supportive measures. In this patient the meningitis caused by S. salivarius was thought to be spontaneous. The importance of bacteriologic...

Potential of Carcinogenesis Induced by John-Cunningham Virus and Crude-Oil Extracts

Shih-Chao Lin, Christopher Z Lien and Chi-Chen Lin

Article Type: Short Communication | First Published: July 13, 2018

John-Cunningham virus (JCV) has been recognized as a major contributor to progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) in humans, especially in immunodeficient patients. While the prevalence rate of PML in human populations could be up to 80%, the occurrence of tumorigenesis is around 0.07%. Thus, we investigated whether crude-oil extracts could synergistically increase the carcinogenesis along with T antigen from JC virus in vitro. Here we analysed the cell cycle distribution and cytotoxici...

Potential of Supercritical Solvent Impregnation for Development of Materials with Antibacterial Properties

Irena Zizovic

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: November 20, 2017

Supercritical solvent impregnation is a modern technique which exploits the unique transport properties and qualities of supercritical fluids such as low viscosity, high diffusion coefficients, densities as in a liquid state and zero surface tension, for the fabrication of novel materials. The mentioned properties allow deep penetration of supercritical fluid with a dissolved bioactive substance into a solid matrix enabling even distribution of the active substance through the whole volume of th...
