Infectious keratitis is a serious ocular infection that can lead to severe visual impairment and blindness. Bacterial pathogens are responsible for nearly half of infectious keratitis cases. This study was performed to determine the virulence factors, antimicrobial resistance patterns, and biofilm formation ability of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus spp. strains isolated from corneal infections.

Gram-negative microorganisms are a significant cause of infection in both community and nosocomial settings. The increase, emergence, and spread of antimicrobial resistance among bacteria are the most...
Candida albicans is considered as the leading species causing vulvovaginal candidiasis. Numerous virulence determinants and escalating resistance to antifungal therapy have contributed to its pathogen...
Bacterial biofilms remain a persistent threat to human healthcare due to their role in the development of antimicrobial resistance. To combat multi-drug resistant pathogens, it is crucial to enhance o...
is a common opportunistic pathogen that colonizes cephalic recording chambers (CRCs) of macaques used in cognitive neuroscience research. We previously characterized 15 strains isolated from macaques...
Biofilm formation significantly contributes to microbial survival in hostile environments and it is currently considered a key virulence factor for pathogens responsible for serious chronic infections...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether choosing antibiotics based on a biofilm antimicrobial susceptibility assay rather than a conventional planktonic antimicrobial susceptibil...
The aim of the study is to compare the effect of a suspension containing chlorhexidine and alcohol and another one containing clorhexidine with no alcohol in dynamic of the subgingival bio...
This is a four-year study, funded by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, related to antimicrobial resistance in rural communities. The project consists of four components: A) ...
To assess the effect of a test antimicrobial oral rinse from Next Science on the prevention of oral biofilm formation and thereby preventing gingivitis by monitoring the oral microbial flo...
Antimicrobial resistance is one of the greatest threats to human health, and is driven by inappropriate antimicrobial use. Antimicrobial stewardship programs (ASPs) improve the use of anti...
The ability of bacteria to resist or to become tolerant to chemotherapeutic agents, antimicrobial agents, or antibiotics. This resistance may be acquired through gene mutation or foreign DNA in transmissible plasmids (R FACTORS).
The ability of microorganisms, especially bacteria, to resist or to become tolerant to chemotherapeutic agents, antimicrobial agents, or antibiotics. This resistance may be acquired through gene mutation or foreign DNA in transmissible plasmids (R FACTORS).
The degree of pathogenicity within a group or species of microorganisms or viruses as indicated by case fatality rates and/or the ability of the organism to invade the tissues of the host. The pathogenic capacity of an organism is determined by its VIRULENCE FACTORS.
Qualities and characterization of various types of populations within a social or geographic group, with emphasis on demography, health status, and socioeconomic factors.
A COAGULASE-negative species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS found on the skin and MUCOUS MEMBRANE of warm-blooded animals. Similar to STAPHYLOCOCCUS EPIDERMIDIS and STAPHYLOCOCCUS HAEMOLYTICUS, it is a nosocomial pathogen in NICU settings. Subspecies include generally antibiotic susceptible and BIOFILM negative capitis and antibiotic resistant and biofilm positive urealyticus isolates.
