BACKGROUND: Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a Gram-negative opportunistic bacterium, which considered as a common cause of nosocomial infection and life-threatening complications in immunocompromized and cystic fibrosis patients. Here, we evaluate the protective effect of recombinant vaccines composed of outer membrane proteins OprF and OprI alone or in combination with flagellin B against mucoid and nonmucoid pseudomonas infection. METHODS: BALB/C mice were immunized subcutaneous using OprF and OprI with or without flagellin B and antibody titers were determined...

REVIEW
Hwei-Fang Tsai, Ping-Ning Hsu
Helicobacter pylori infection is associated with chronic gastritis, peptic ulcer, gastric carcinoma, and gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphomas. Apoptosis induced by microbial infections is implicated in the pathogenesis of H. pylori infection. Enhanced gastric epithelial cell apoptosis during H. pylori infection was suggested to play an important role in the pathogenesis of chronic gastritis and gastric pathology. In addition to directly triggering apoptosis, H. pylori induces sensitivity to tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL)-mediated apoptosis in gastric epithelial cells...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: This study was carried out to investigate whether toll-like receptor-1 (TLR1) rs4833095 (N248S) variant, common in the Taiwanese population, contributes to pathogenesis of allergy. METHODS: TLR2/1 ligand Pam3CSK4-stimulated cytokine production in peripheral blood mononuclear cells and monocyte-derived dendritic cells of different genotypes were measured via enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Ninety-three Taiwanese allergic patients (with asthma, allergic rhinitis, or atopic dermatitis) and 76 controls were recruited for genotyping...

BACKGROUND: Invasive candidiasis (IC) is the most common cause of invasive fungal infections. Identification of risk factors for such infection may help in the empirical therapeutic decision-making process. We conducted this study to characterize the clinical epidemiology of such infection and to differentiate risk factors between Candida albicans and Candida non-albicans species. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated patients with IC from 2011 to 2013. Clinical data, antibiotic therapy, underlying condition, and invasive procedures were analyzed and compared between C...

BACKGROUND: Fever of unknown origin (FUO) was first described in 1961 as fever >38.3°C for at least 3 weeks with no apparent source after 1 week of investigations in the hospital. Infectious disease comprises the majority of cases (40-60%). There is no related research on FUO in children in Taiwan. The aim of this study is to determine the etiologies of FUO in children in Taiwan and to evaluate the relationship between the diagnosis and patient's demography and laboratory data. METHODS: Children under 18 years old with fever >38...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Patients with Acinetobacter pittii and Acinetobacter nosocomialis bacteremia have lower mortality rates than those with Acinetobacter baumannii bacteremia. However, it is unknown whether these organisms differ in outcomes of bacteremic patients. We conducted this study to answer this question. METHODS: In this retrospective study conducted at a teaching hospital in Taiwan, we enrolled all 86 patients who had developed A. pittii bacteremia and those with A...

BACKGROUND: The tuberculosis (TB) pandemic remains a leading cause of human morbidity and mortality, despite widespread use of the only licensed anti-TB vaccine, bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG). The protective efficacy of BCG in preventing pulmonary TB is highly variable; therefore, an effective new vaccine is urgently required. METHODS: In the present study, we assessed the ability of novel recombinant BCG vaccine (rBCG) against Mycobacterium tuberculosis by using modern immunological methods...

BACKGROUND: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype is important for identifying effective antiviral therapy, evaluating pathogenic severity, and tracking transmission routes. In Thailand, HCV genotypes 3 and 1 are the most common. We have previously demonstrated an increasing appearance of genotype 6 in HCV infections in Thailand. However, only limited epidemiological data on genotype 6 in Thailand are available. This study aimed to characterize HCV genotype 6 among apparently healthy Thai blood donors...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Respiratory viral infections have frequently been reported to closely correlate with asthma exacerbations. Distinctive expression of cytokine/chemokine and anomalous responses of innate immunity induced by respiratory viral infections were suggested to play a key role. This study further evaluates the effects of airway sensitization on innate immunity in response to different viruses. METHODS: Murine sensitization was established using an ovalbumin (OVA) sensitization model...

BACKGROUND: Campylobacter spp. are zoonotic pathogens, however, knowledge about their presence and antimicrobial resistance in nonhuman primates is limited. Our animal facility purchased cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) from various Asian countries: China, Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. METHODS: Colonization by Campylobacter spp. was investigated in 238 of the monkeys from 2009 to 2012 and antimicrobial susceptibility testing was carried out for these isolates...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Enterobacter cloacae is a well-recognized nosocomial pathogen. Use of a rapid, in vivo infection model for E. cloacae that can determine the efficacy of antibiotic therapies could help facilitate screening for new treatments. Nonmammalian model systems of infection, such as Galleria mellonella, have significant logistical and ethical advantages over mammalian models. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We utilized G. mellonella larvae to determine the utility of this infection model to study antibacterial efficacy...

OBJECTIVE: Enterovirus 71 (EV71) is one of the major pathogens that cause severe enteroviral infections. Our aim was to study the behavioral and household risk factors for its serious complications. METHODS: Between May 2011 and November 2012, we enrolled children who had symptoms of EV71 infection from six hospitals in Taiwan. The caregivers of each patient were interviewed to determine their hand hygiene habits in relation to EV71 infection. The severity of EV71 infection was classified as follows: Stage 1, hand-foot-mouth disease or herpangina; Stage 2, meningitis or myoclonic jerk; Stage 3A, encephalitis; Stage 3B, cardiopulmonary failure...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) was recognized as a leading pathogen and has been shown to be genetically different from the health care-associated MRSA (HA-MRSA). Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is considered a potential alternative method for the treatment of resistant bacterial infections, but the effect of PDT on CA-MRSA is unknown. The purpose of this study was to compare the bactericidal effects of toluidine blue O (TBO) on CA-MRSA and HA-MRSA and investigate the photodynamic inactivation effects of TBO (TBO-PDI) against bacterial virulence factors...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are extensively used as a class of flame retardants and have become ubiquitous environmental pollutants. We aimed to uncover the changes in microbial community with PBDE anaerobic degradation with and without zero-valent iron in sediment from the Erren River, considered one of the most heavily contaminated rivers in Taiwan. METHODS: PBDE anaerobic degradation in sediment was analyzed by gas chromatography with an electron capture detector...
