OBJECTIVES: Rapid identification of Elizabethkingia species is essential because these species show variations in antibiotic susceptibility and clinical outcomes. Many recent inaccuracies in Elizabethkingia identification by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionisation time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) have been noted. Accordingly, in this study, we evaluated the use of MALDI-TOF MS with an amended database to identify isolates of Elizabethkingia anophelis, E. miricola, and E...

BACKGROUND: The estimated annual global burden of miscarriage is 33 million out of 210 million pregnancies. Many women undergoing miscarriage have surgery to remove pregnancy tissues, resulting in miscarriage surgery being one of the most common operations performed in hospitals in low-income countries. Infection is a serious consequence and can result in serious illness and death. In low-income settings, the infection rate following miscarriage surgery has been reported to be high. Good quality evidence on the use of prophylactic antibiotics for surgical miscarriage management is not available...

Background: Peripheral nerve injury is a worldwide clinical problem, and the preferred surgical method for treating it is the end-to-end neurorrhaphy. When it is not possible due to a large nerve gap, autologous nerve grafting is used. However, these surgical techniques result in nerve regeneration at highly variable degrees. It is thus very important to seek complementary techniques to improve motor and sensory recovery. One promising approach could be cell therapy. Transplantation therapy with human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) is appealing because these cells are pluripotent and can differentiate into specialized cell types and have self-renewal ability...

Antibiotics degradation remains a longstanding challenge in wastewater treatment. Towards this objective, we have developed a novel technique combining cavitating jets impingement with multiple synergetic methods, i.e., UV/Fenton, analogous Fenton, and photocatalytic oxidation in the present work. Three kinds of antibiotics namely amoxicillin, doxycycline and sulfadiazine sodium, are selected as model pollutants. Individual application of cavitating jets impingement is firstly conducted to evaluate the effects of jets impinging forms and nozzle inlet pressure...

Antibiotics at subminimal inhibitory concentrations (sub-MICs) are known to induce biofilm formation in numerous bacteria in vitro. In this report, the effect of sub-MIC levels of antibiotics (doxycycline and tetracycline) on biofilm formation by leptospiral reference strains and isolates was investigated. The sub-MIC levels of both tetracycline and doxycycline were able to induce biofilm in some of the leptospiral strains. This is the first report demonstrating the effect of sub-MIC level of antibiotics in inducing biofilm formation in Leptospira...

While many studies have demonstrated that canonical NF-κB signaling is a central pathway in lung tumorigenesis, the role of non-canonical NF-κB signaling in lung cancer remains undefined. We observed frequent nuclear accumulation of the non-canonical NF-κB component p100/p52 in human lung adenocarcinoma. To investigate the impact of non-canonical NF-κB signaling on lung carcinogenesis, we employed transgenic mice with doxycycline-inducible expression of p52 in airway epithelial cells. p52 over-expression led to increased tumor number and progression after injection of the carcinogen urethane...

After administration to livestock, a large fraction of antibiotics are excreted unchanged via excreta and can be transferred to agricultural land. For effective risk assessment a critical factor is to determine which antibiotics can be expected in the different environmental compartments. After excretion, the first relevant compartment is manure storage. In the current study, the fate of a broad scope of antibiotics (n = 46) during manure storage of different livestock animals (calves, pigs, broilers) was investigated...
