Photodynamic inactivation for in vitro decontamination of Staphylococcus aureus in whole blood.

Summary of "Photodynamic inactivation for in vitro decontamination of Staphylococcus aureus in whole blood."

Blood can be the target of bacterial, fungal, viral and parasitic contamination. Blood bags used in hemotherapy for transfusion of erythrocytes, platelets, and plasma are targets of contamination, which can trigger serious diseases, especially blood infections. These infections can progress to sepsis and cause death in intensive care units when not detected or treated rapidly. This study evaluated photodynamic inactivation in the in vitro decontamination of whole blood, erythrocytes and platelet-rich plasma with Staphylococcus aureus.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A strain of Staphylococcus aureus that is non-susceptible to the action of METHICILLIN. The mechanism of resistance usually involves modification of normal or the presence of acquired PENICILLIN BINDING PROTEINS.

A 25-kDa peptidase produced by Staphylococcus simulans which cleaves a glycine-glcyine bond unique to an inter-peptide cross-bridge of the STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS cell wall. EC

Pneumonia caused by infections with bacteria of the genus STAPHYLOCOCCUS, usually with STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS.

A species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS similar to STAPHYLOCOCCUS HAEMOLYTICUS, but containing different esterases. The subspecies Staphylococcus hominis novobiosepticus is highly virulent and novobiocin resistant.

Potentially pathogenic bacteria found in nasal membranes, skin, hair follicles, and perineum of warm-blooded animals. They may cause a wide range of infections and intoxications.
