In this study the authors assess the burden of illness, impacts and costs associated with surgical site infections, concluding that SSIs impart a broad and significant impact on both patients and their families.
This study looks at Candida tropicalis, evaluating if radiation used in radiotherapy can cause changes in the virulence potential.
In this article, carbapenem antimicrobial susceptibility testing profiles were determined in a population of Klebsiella pneumoniae, and their resistance assessed based on previous and current Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute criteria.
Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are increasingly recognized as important opportunistic pathogens of humans, the authors dicuss the clinical managment and treatments for nontuberculous mycobacterial infections.
In this review the authors systematically review the association between maternal nutritional status in pregnancy and infant immune response to childhood vaccines.
New drugs with antifungal action need to be developed. Here, the authors investigate the antifungal activity of MOL3, a small molecule that was selected by virtual screening, against Candida spp.
This research reports the synthesis of capped gold nanoparticles by reducing HAuCl4 with flower and leaf extracts of Ocimum tenuiflorum, leaves of Azadirachta indica and Mentha spicata and peel of Citrus sinensis plants and assessed their activity on Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella pneumoniae.
This research article from Future Microbiology investigates the species distribution and antifungal susceptibility profiles of yeast isolates causing invasive infections across Beijing.
Despite significant advances in the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), there remain challenges. This review highlights recent advances in the application of nanotechnology to drug delivery, specifically with the purpose of improving HIV therapy.
Silver nanoparticles have long been used as potent antibacterial agents. However, toxicity concerns of silver nanoparticles have limited their successful clinical applications. This research reports a simple and cost-effective method for the synthesis of nickel-prussian blue@silver nanocomposites.
