Biofilm formation in uropathogenic Escherichia coli strains: relationship with prostatitis, urovirulence factors and antimicrobial resistance.
TLDR
The association between hemolysin and biofilm formation may result in increased ability of E. coli strains to persist in the prostate, as well as the presence of several urovirulence factors and resistance to nalidixic acid. Expand
Quinolone-Resistant Uropathogenic Escherichia coli Strains from Phylogenetic Group B2 Have Fewer Virulence Factors than Their Susceptible Counterparts
TLDR
The prevalence of 31 virulence factors was analyzed among nalidixic acid-susceptible and -resistant Escherichia coli strains from phylogenetic group B2 and Quinolone resistance may be associated with a decrease in the presence of some virulence Factors. Expand
Implication of biofilm formation in the persistence of urinary tract infection caused by uropathogenic Escherichia coli.
TLDR
In-vitro production of biofilm, yersiniabactin and aerobactin was significantly more frequent among strains causing relapse, and may be helpful in selecting patients who require a therapeutic approach to eradicate persistent biofilm-forming E. coli strains and prevent subsequent relapses. Expand
Diagnostic and management of spontaneous rectus sheath hematoma.
TLDR
Most spontaneous rectus sheath hematomas diagnosed over the last 12 years respond to conservative management, although those related to low molecular weight heparin might require interventional treatment; arteriography with selective embolization of the epigastric arteries is the first therapeutic option. Expand
Expression of Interleukin-8 Receptors (CXCR1 and CXCR2) in Premenopausal Women with Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections
TLDR
It is suggested that a low level of CXCR2 expression may increase the susceptibilities of premenopausal women to urinary tract infections. Expand
Langerhans cell histiocytosis: an exploratory epidemiologic study of 177 cases.
TLDR
Factors found to be statistically significantly associated with an increased risk of LCH included: maternal urinary tract infection during the index pregnancy, feeding problems during infancy, and blood transfusions during infancy. Expand
Prevalence and risk factors for quinolone resistance among Escherichia coli strains isolated from males with community febrile urinary tract infection
TLDR
To have a HA-UTI and a previous use of FQ in the preceding month were strong risk factors for QR E. coli, and thus empirical antimicrobial treatment with quinolones should be avoided in these patients. Expand
Polymorphic receptors of the innate immune system (MBL/MASP-2 and TLR2/4) and susceptibility to pneumococcal bacteremia in HIV-infected patients: a case-control study.
TLDR
In HIV infected patients, no association between the presence of deficient polymorphisms of MBL2, MASP2, TLR2 and TLR4 and the incidence of pneumococcal bacteremia was found. Expand
Genotypes Coding for Low Serum Levels of Mannose-Binding Lectin Are Underrepresented among Individuals Suffering from Noninfectious Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome
TLDR
Interestingly, ICU patients with a noninfectious SIRS had a lower frequency for low-MBL genotypes and a higher frequency for high-M BL genotypes than either ICU Patients with an infectious SIRs or healthy controls. Expand
