burkhoderia cepacia

Akira Marumoto, Keiji Iwata
Infectious complications in patients with multiple myeloma remain the main cause of mortality because of disease-related immunodeficiency. A mycotic aortic aneurysm caused by Burkhoderia cepacia, which has been recognized as nosocomial pathogen in immunocompromised populations, is very rare and only few cases have been reported in the literature. We describe an unusual case of a ruptured mycotic aneurysm of the descending thoracic aorta with a DeBakey IIIb aortic dissection caused by Burkhoderia cepacia in a patient with active multiple myeloma during chemotherapy with anti-myeloma agents...

Whole-cell proteins of 22 strain of Burkhoderia pseudomallei, including 13 B. mallei, 5 B. cepacia strains and 14 strains of opportunistically pathogenic Pseudomonas defined by 1D SDC-PAAG electrophoresis. Electrophoregrams contained 35 to 45 protein fractions sized 19 to 130 kDa, which were highly reproductive. On the basis of computer-aided comparative analysis of protein patterns the interspecies and intraspecies grouping of studied microorganisms was made. The cluster analysis of the similarity matrix of protein spectra made it possible to allocate two groups of strains at the level of similarity of 78%...

The antimicrobial activity of merocyanine 540 (MC 540), a photosensitizing dye previously used to purge malignant cells from autologous bone marrow grafts, was evaluated against a panel of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and Candida albicans in the presence and absence of light. In the absence of light, MC 540 demonstrated no antibacterial activity against any of the organisms tested. When combined with increasing intervals of photoillumination, growth inhibition was observed with all Gram-positive organisms tested except Mycobacterium fortuitum...
