Characterization of killed but metabolically active uropathogenic Escherichia coli strain as possible vaccine candidate for urinary tract infection.

Summary of "Characterization of killed but metabolically active uropathogenic Escherichia coli strain as possible vaccine candidate for urinary tract infection."

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the second most frequent infection in human, and uropathogenic Escherichia coli is its most common cause. Although antibiotics are the standard treatment for UTI, they can cause harmful effects on gut microbiome and increase the rate of existing drug-resistant bacteria, which make the vaccine research reasonable. This study was conducted to construct a Killed but Metabolically Active (KBMA) E. coli strain, and to determine its characteristics as a possible vaccine candidate for UTI, which will be evaluated in further investigations.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Strains of Escherichia coli that possess virulence traits which allow them to invade, colonize, and induce disease in tissues outside of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. They are a cause of URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS (UROPATHOGENIC ESCHERICHIA COLI); neonatal MENINGITIS; SEPSIS; PNEUMONIA; and SURGICAL WOUND INFECTION.

Strains of Escherichia coli that preferentially grow and persist within the urinary tract. They exhibit certain virulence factors and strategies that cause urinary tract infections.

Strains of ESCHERICHIA COLI that are a subgroup of SHIGA-TOXIGENIC ESCHERICHIA COLI. They cause non-bloody and bloody DIARRHEA; HEMOLYTIC UREMIC SYNDROME; and hemorrhagic COLITIS. An important member of this subgroup is ESCHERICHIA COLI O157-H7.

An enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli of the O subfamily that can cause severe FOODBORNE DISEASE. The H4 serotype strain produces SHIGA TOXINS and has been linked to human disease outbreaks, including some cases of HEMOLYTIC-UREMIC SYNDROME, resulting from contamination of foods by feces containing E. coli O104.

A verocytotoxin-producing serogroup belonging to the O subfamily of Escherichia coli which has been shown to cause severe food-borne disease. A strain from this serogroup, serotype H7, which produces SHIGA TOXINS, has been linked to human disease outbreaks resulting from contamination of foods by E. coli O157 from bovine origin.
