Sources of Bacterial Contamination in Human Milk Samples From the MiLC Trial

2017-12-19 10:49:08 | BioPortfolio


This observational study is a sub-study of the MiLC Trial ( Identifier: NCT03123874). Our objective is to characterize the bacterial communities of women's breasts, hands, their pump and milk collection kit, and their babies' mouths among the participants of the MiLC Trial. As part of the original protocol, we collected swabs of each of these areas from each dyad before women pumped with their own pumps. By characterizing these communities, we can identify from where the bacteria in human milk (HM) originates, and determine whether pumping with mother's own pumps enriches the bacterial communities of HM compared to pumping with a sterile pump.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An ethnic group with shared religious beliefs in PROTESTANISM. Originating in Switzerland in the late 1600s, and first migrating to the mid-Atlantic, they now live throughout Eastern and Mid-Western United States and elsewhere. Communities are usually close-knit and marriage is within the community.

Physicochemical property of fimbriated (FIMBRIAE, BACTERIAL) and non-fimbriated bacteria of attaching to cells, tissue, and nonbiological surfaces. It is a factor in bacterial colonization and pathogenicity.

Death of pulp tissue with or without bacterial invasion. When the necrosis is due to ischemia with superimposed bacterial infection, it is referred to as pulp gangrene. When the necrosis is non-bacterial in origin, it is called pulp mummification.

Inflammation of the lung parenchyma that is caused by bacterial infections.

Bacterial enzymes of the DNA TOPOISOMERASES, TYPE I class that catalyze ATP-independent breakage of one of the two strands of DNA, passage of the unbroken strand through the break, and rejoining of the broken strand. These bacterial enzymes reduce the topological stress in the DNA structure by relaxing negatively, but not positively, supercoiled DNA.
