Effect of temperature on antibacterial activity of lidocaine to Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The effect of temperature on the antibacterial activity of lidocaine to Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa was investigated in vitro.

At 10 C at which S. On the other hand, at 40 C a conspicuously increased antibacterial activity to S. Similar results were obtained when P.

The clinical significance of the thermal effect on the antibacterial activity of lidocaine was discussed in brief. Directory of Open Access Journals Sweden. Full Text Available The airways of cystic fibrosis CF patients have thick mucus, which fosters chronic, polymicrobial infections. Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus are two of the most prevalent respiratory pathogens in CF patients. In this study, we tested whether P. Using our in vitro coculture model, we observed that addition of P.

Similarly, the siderophores pyoverdine and pyochelin also contribute to the ability of P. Importantly, P. We propose a model whereby P. Anti-infective properties of Lactobacillus fermentum against Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Surgical wounds and implant-associated Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections are often difficult to treat because of limited susceptibility of several of these strains to conventional antibiotics. As a result, there is a constant need for new alternative drugs. The aim of this study was to investigate the antimicrobial properties of Lactobacillus fermentum, a probiotic bacterium, which we have isolated from colonic biopsies. The inhibition of S. Growth inhibition was tested for several of their clinical isolates using agar well diffusion assays.

For biofilm assay S. Biofilms were photographed using confocal microscope or stained with 0. Reduction in the cytotoxicity of S.

Using in vitroexperiments, we showed that L. Compound s present in the culture supernatant of L. Karger AG, Basel. Pseudomonas aeruginosa induces pigment production and enhances virulence in a white phenotypic variant of Staphylococcus aureus. Staphyloxanthin is a virulence factor which protects Staphylococcus aureus in stress conditions. We isolated two pigment variants of S.

The sequence of the operons for staphyloxanthin synthesis indicated that coding and promoter regions were identical between the two pigment variants. Quorum sensing controls pigment synthesis in some bacteria.

It is also shown that P. We explored whether the co-infecting P. In co-culture experiments between the white variants and a selected number of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, only P.

Gene expression analysis of the white variant did not indicate upregulation of the crtM and other genes known to be involved in pigment production sigB, sarA, farnesyl pyrophosphate synthase gene [FPP-synthase], hfq. In contrast, transcription of the catalase gene was significantly upregulated after co-culture. Our data indicate the presence of silent but functional staphyloxanthin synthesis machinery in a white phenotypic variant of S. Another S. The resulting phenotypic changes are directly correlated with resistance of the white variant to stressful conditions.

Our data indicate the presence of silent but functional staphyloxanthin synthesis machinery in a white phenotypic variant. Interactions among members of polymicrobial infections or between pathogens and the commensal flora may determine disease outcomes.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus are important opportunistic human pathogens and are both part of the polymicrobial infection communities in human In this study, we analyzed the in vitro interaction between S. While the early adapted P This effect Influence of growth media on the sensitivity of Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa to cationic biocides. In this study, the influence of culturing Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa under different growth conditions on their inactivation by the cationic active compounds benzalkonium chloride, chlorhexidine digluconate and octenidine dihydrochloride was investigated.

Cells were grown in non-agitated tryptone soya broth as well as on tryptone soya agar according to national and international standards for evaluating chemical disinfectants. In quantitative suspension tests, cells of both test organisms grown on agar were significantly more sensitive to all three biocides than cells grown in broth.

The differences in antimicrobial activity were greater in the case of S. With S. The results of our uptake tests performed with S. Cells of S. These data correlated with the results of the suspension tests. A low uptake of biocides apparently led to a reduced killing rate. In contrast to S. These cells took up the same amount of the antimicrobial substance, whether on agar or in broth.

In view of these results, possible consequences should be considered prior to changing test regulations. Interactions of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus USA and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in polymicrobial wound infection. Full Text Available Understanding the pathology resulting from Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa polymicrobial wound infections is of great importance due to their ubiquitous nature, increasing prevalence, growing resistance to antimicrobial agents, and ability to delay healing.

Methicillin-resistant S. We utilized a well-established porcine partial thickness wound healing model to study the synergistic effects of USA and P.

Wound re-epithelialization was significantly delayed by mixed-species biofilms through suppression of keratinocyte growth factor 1. Pseudomonas showed an inhibitory effect on USA growth in vitro while both species co-existed in cutaneous wounds in vivo. Polymicrobial wound infection in the presence of P. These results provide evidence for the interaction of bacterial species within mixed-species biofilms in vivo and for the first time, the contribution of virulence factors to the severity of polymicrobial wound infections.

Effect of biosurfactants on Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus biofilms in a BioFlux channel. Recent studies have indicated that biosurfactants play a role both in maintaining channels between multicellular structures in biofilms and in dispersal of cells from biofilms.

A combination of caprylic acid 0. The biofilms were also treated with a combination of rhamnolipids 0. The Gram-positive bacterium S. Disruption of biofilms of P. Cells in biofilms exposed to mono-rhamnolipids 0. Antibacterial effect of the laser-generated Se nanocoatings on Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilms. Ionin, A.

The antibacterial properties of selenium nanoparticles Se NPs were successfully demonstrated in vitro for Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilms. The possible mechanisms of antibacterial impact included the emergence of reactive oxygen species, induced by free radicals on the NP surface and accompanied by subsequent oxidative stress, as well as mechanical decomposition of the mitochondrial membrane.

The resulted porous nanofilms with high-percentage surface coverage, consisting of spherical Se NPs and Se nanorods, were characterized by means of standard microscopy techniques optical, scanning electron, transmission , UV-vis-IR and EDX spectroscopy. Molecular analysis of volatile metabolites released specifically by staphylococcus aureus and pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Full Text Available Abstract Background The routinely used microbiological diagnosis of ventilator associated pneumonia VAP is time consuming and often requires invasive methods for collection of human specimens e. Therefore, it is of utmost interest to develop a non-invasive method for the early detection of bacterial infection in ventilated patients, preferably allowing the identification of the specific pathogens. The present work is an attempt to identify pathogen-derived volatile biomarkers in breath that can be used for early and non- invasive diagnosis of ventilator associated pneumonia VAP.

For this purpose, in vitro experiments with bacteria most frequently found in VAP patients, i. Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa , were performed to investigate the release or consumption of volatile organic compounds VOCs. Results Headspace samples were collected and preconcentrated on multibed sorption tubes at different time points and subsequently analyzed with gas chromatography mass spectrometry GC-MS.

As many as 32 and 37 volatile metabolites were released by S. Distinct differences in the bacteria-specific VOC profiles were found, especially with regard to aldehydes e. Differences in concentration profiles were also found for acids e.

Importantly, a significant VOC release was found already 1. Conclusions The results obtained provide strong evidence that the detection and perhaps even. Photosensitization using 1.
