Based upon the possible implication of microbiota and abnormal microbial metabolites such as altered bile acids, in the pathogenesis of PSC, emerging data suggests that oral antibiotics, such as vancomycin and metronidazole, may have therapeutic effects in this overlap syndrome or PSC. The goal of our study is to evaluate role of antibiotics and microflora in children with AIH/PSC overlap syndrome or with PSC alone. We hope to learn what effects oral antibiotics has on t...
The purpose of this study is to determine in situ the bacterial viability, thickness and bacterial diversity of a biofilm formed on different substrates in comparison to a naturally tooth-formed oral biofilm. In addition, it will be evaluated whether the restraint of oral hygiene measures may influence the development of the PL-Biofilm.
Tree nuts (for example brazil nuts, almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashew nuts etc) contain a wide variety of nutrients including fatty acids, polyphenols and micronutrients. The beneficial health effects ascribed to the consumption of tree nuts include improvements to cardiovascular outcomes and regulation of glucose levels and inflammation. Emerging evidence suggests that specific components of nuts may also contribute to brain health and function. The aim of the present study...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether choosing antibiotics based on a biofilm antimicrobial susceptibility assay rather than a conventional planktonic antimicrobial susceptibility assay to treat CF patients with chronic P. aeruginosa infection with an acute pulmonary exacerbation is a safe intervention that will result in improved microbiological and clinical outcomes and decrease markers of pulmonary inflammation.
The purpose of the study is to determine the effect of a two-step mouth rinsing procedure on reducing the germs (mutans Streptococci) that cause tooth decay. We hope that the two-step mouth rinse (0.3% NaOCl followed by 10% Povidone Iodine) decreases the tooth causing germs better than the one-step mouth rinse (10% Povidone Iodine). The mouth rinse for both treatment groups is done only once at the beginning of the study after the initial saliva samples are taken, and before a ...
This study compared the removal of dental biofilm between soft and medium toothbrushes. The patients refrained from performing mechanical or chemical plaque control for 96 hours to allow dental biofilm accumulation on the tooth surfaces. After the period of dental biofilm formation, the quadrants were randomized and the participants brushed different quadrants with soft and medium toothbrushes, with or without dentifrice. The plaque indices were analyzed by a blinded examiner b...
The mechanical control of supragingival biofilm is accepted as one of the most important measures to prevent dental caries and periodontal diseases. Nevertheless, maintaining dental surfaces biofilm-free is not an easy task. In this regard, numerous studies researches have demonstrated the effectiveness of mouthwashes containing antimicrobial active ingredients that prevent and control both supragingival biofilm and gingivitis, specially when used adjunctively to mechanical ora...
The optimum duration of intravenous antibiotic therapy for culture-proven neonatal bacterial sepsis is not known. Current practices, ranging from 7 days to 14 days of antibiotics, are not evidence-based. We plan a randomized, active -controlled, multi-centric, non-inferiority trial to compare the efficacy of a 7-day course of intravenous antibiotics versus a 14-day course among neonates weighing > 1500 g at birth with culture-proven bacterial sepsis that is uncomplicated by men...
The aim is to study the microenvironment of chronic biofilm infection in diabetic wounds which shows deregulated immune cells responses and biofilm interaction resulting in delayed/impaired/non wound healing. We seek to understand immune evasion strategy of biofilms and study mechanisms which biofilm modify macrophages phenotype and functions in such wounds
Dental infections originating in the teeth are routinely managed systemically with a course of oral antibiotics, while severe forms are managed with intravenous antibiotics. Dental infections can also be managed by removing the offending cause of the infection followed by placement of an intra-canal medication which acts as a local antimicrobial. Intra-canal medicaments are being used in clinical practice following root canal treatment. The investigators hypothesize that the ef...
The ability to determine the postmenopausal vaginal environment and the impact of pessary use could help to maximize pessary therapy and non-surgical treatment for such a prevalent problem.
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 biofilm formation versus a Placebo suspension. The initial subgingival biofilm formation will be evaluated by means of Plaque Free Zone (PFZ).
The objective of the study is to analyze the different implications (such as graft loss and conversion of indeterminate depth burns) of biofilm infections in burn patients. Additionally, it also aims at comparing children's resistance to biofilm infection at wound site than adults'. 300 subjects from 3 different age groups will be enrolled in 3 arms.
More than 250 million courses of antibiotics are prescribed annually in the ambulatory care setting in the United States alone, including more than 40 million in children under 18 years of age. The perception that antibiotic use has minimal attendant adverse side effects contributes to the over-utilization of antibiotics in clinical circumstances when they are not strictly indicated. We have learned much about the human microbiome. The emerging view is of profound life-long bi-...
The investigators will conduct a descriptive, prospective, three-armed study concerning the pathophysiology of chronic rhinosinusitis. In one part of the study the investigators want to investigate the presence of biofilm in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis both with and without nasal polyps compared with a control group of subjects without chronic rhinosinusitis. The investigators will also compare quality of life in the three groups and correlate disease severity in biof...
H pylori gastric infection is one of the most prevalent infectious diseases worldwide. The discovery that most upper gastrointestinal diseases are related to H pylori infection and therefore can be treated with antibiotics is an important medical advance. Currently, a first-line triple therapy based on proton pump inhibitor (PPI) or ranitidine bismuth citrate (RBC) plus two antibiotics (clarithromycin and amoxicillin or nitroimidazole) is recommended by all consensus conference...
This study aims to evaluate the in situ antibacterial activity of a mouthwash containing essential oils with and without alcohol on undisturbed de novo plaque-like biofilm (PL-biofilm) up to 7 h after its application. An appliance was designed to hold six glass disks on the buccal sides of the lower teeth, allowing PL-biofilm growth. Twenty healthy volunteers will the appliance for 48 h and then performed a mouthwash with essential oils. Disks will be removed after 30 s and at...
The Community Youth Development Study is an experimental test of the Communities That Care (CTC) prevention planning system. It is designed to find out if communities that use the CTC system can improve the public health by reducing rates of adolescent drug use, delinquency, violence, and risky sexual behavior when compared to communities that do not use this approach.
There is evidence that using shorter antibiotic regimens may help in decreasing antimicrobial resistance and reducing drug-related adverse events.6 Moreover, short-course treatments were found to be as effective as longer-course antibiotic treatment.7,8 In a pooled analysis of four randomized trials in VAP comparing shorter versus long duration of antibiotics in the management of VAP, no difference in the mortality was found. We hypothesize that the use of short course of antib...
This was a randomized multi-center clinical trial to compare the microbiological efficacy, clinical efficacy, and safety of using standard versus biofilm susceptibility testing of P. aeruginosa sputum isolates to guide antibiotic selection for treatment of airway infection in clinically stable patients with CF.
The effect of microbial exposure on healthy human subjects will be investigated. Changes in cytokine and IgE and vaccine response will be measured. The hypothesis is that microbial exposure increases the measured responses.
Dental caries is a polymicrobial infection originally thought to be caused by Streptococcus mutans and Lactobacilli. However, unprecedented developments in modern molecular techniques have demonstrated that several microbial species are associated with the disease in addition to streptococci and lactobacilli. Dental caries initiation and progression is a dynamic process in which demineralization of the tooth structure, as a result of acid production from acidogenic bacteria (du...
Chronic non-healing wounds considerably impact quality of life in affected patients and are a substantial burden on the Canadian health care system. Microbes colonizing a chronic wound play an important role in impeding effective healing. Chronic wounds are colonized by polymicrobial communities and no single organism can be seen as causal. Only a small fraction of wound bacteria are cultured by diagnostic tests and studies have shown little agreement between culture and molecu...
