Epidemiological characterization of P. aeruginosa isolates of intensive care units in Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
TLDR
ERIC was superior to antibiotyping and should be used in tracing sources of infection in intensive care units in Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
Comparison of the gut microbiota of people in France and Saudi Arabia
TLDR
French individuals had significantly higher richness and biodiversity compared with Saudis at all the OTU cutoffs (P<0.05), and microbiota differences between obese and normal weight French were not similar to those between obese or normal weight Saudis.
Molecular characterization, antimicrobial resistance and clinico-bioinformatics approaches to address the problem of extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli in western Saudi Arabia
TLDR
Overall, the study concludes that ‘ceftazidime along with avibactam’ should be carefully used as a treatment option against only carbapenem-resistant MDR ESBL-producing E. coli in this region.
Culturomics and Amplicon-based Metagenomic Approaches for the Study of Fungal Population in Human Gut Microbiota
TLDR
Combining both culturomic and amplicon-based metagenomic approaches may be a novel strategy towards analyzing fungal compositions in the human gut.
Production, purification and characterization of cellulase from Streptomyces sp.
TLDR
Cellulase productivity in tested strain was improved by supplementation of the carboxymethyl cellulase liquid medium with 1% corn steep liquor and pH 6.5 (maintained throughout the incubation period using 0.05 M phosphate buffer).
Genomic analysis of multidrug-resistant clinical Enterococcus faecalis isolates for antimicrobial resistance genes and virulence factors from the western region of Saudi Arabia
TLDR
Diverse STs of E. faecalis, including strains associated with common nosocomial infections are circulating in the healthcare facility of Saudi Arabia and carried multi-drug resistance, which has important implications for infection control.
Gut microbiome and dietary patterns in different Saudi populations and monkeys
TLDR
It was found that the gut microbiomes of westernized urban Saudis had significantly lower richness and biodiversity than the traditional Bedouin population.
Candida identification: a journey from conventional to molecular methods in medical mycology
TLDR
A number of existing techniques ranging from conventional to molecular approaches currently in use for the identification of Candida species are reviewed, with ITS sequencing and PCR–RFLP analysis of ITS region seems to be promising as a rapid, easy, and cost-effective method for identification ofCandida species.
Detection and Genotyping of Helicobacter pylori among Gastric ulcer and Cancer Patients from Saudi Arabia
TLDR
This study finds that vacAs1am1 and babA2 are most prominent genotypes in H. pylori and may play role in development of Gastric cancer.
Bacterial contamination of computer keyboards and mice, elevator buttons and shopping carts
TLDR
The presence of pathogenic and commensal bacteria on the four objects indicates that they might act as environmental vehicles for the transmission of potentially pathogenic bacteria.
