Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is the most frequent life-threatening nosocomial infection in the ICU. Oropharyngeal colonization with bacterial pathogens is the first step toward lu...
The clinical study of the microbial colonization of chronic keratinized hand eczema and the change of microbial colonization after external using of Halometasone Triclosan Cream
In this prospective observational multicenter study we aim to determine the prevalence of oropharyngeal and rectal Gram-negative bacilli colonization in 4 population of hospitalized subjec...
In this prospective observational study we aim to determine the prevalence of oropharyngeal and rectal Gram-negative bacilli colonization in healthy subjects, and their susceptibility to c...
The gut microbiome plays a significant role in balancing the inflammatory system in the immature gut. A breakdown in this balance with altered colonization of the microbiota in very low bi...
Patient hand hygiene is a commonsense measure that has been associated with reductions in colonization or infection with bacterial and viral pathogens in quasi-experimental studies. We conducted a non...
Host pathways mediating changes in immune states elicited by intestinal microbial colonization are incompletely characterized. Here we describe alterations of the host immune state induced by coloniza...
Clinical, therapeutic ball pits commonly used by physical therapists to provide sensory stimulation to children were investigated for microbial colonization. Due to the permissive and hospitable envir...
A randomized intervention study was conducted to explore the impact of oral care with sterile normal saline to oral flora colonization of high-risk newborns at the third day after birth.
Premature neonates (PN) present multiple risk factors for high frequencies and high levels of colonization by C. difficile, yet data is missing about this specific pediatric population. Here, we inves...
A frequent complication of drug therapy for microbial infection. It may result from opportunistic colonization following immunosuppression by the primary pathogen and can be influenced by the time interval between infections, microbial physiology, or host resistance. Experimental challenge and in vitro models are sometimes used in virulence and infectivity studies.
A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.
Enumeration by direct count of viable, isolated bacterial, archaeal, or fungal CELLS or SPORES capable of growth on solid CULTURE MEDIA. Each colony (i.e., microbial colony-forming unit) represents the progeny of a single cell in the original inoculum. The method is used routinely by environmental microbiologists for quantifying organisms in AIR; FOOD; and WATER; by clinicians for measuring patients' microbial load; and in antimicrobial drug testing.
A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.
Light absorbing proteins and protein prosthetic groups found in certain microorganisms. Some microbial photoreceptors initiate specific chemical reactions which signal a change in the environment, while others generate energy by pumping specific ions across a cellular membrane.
