Comparative analysis of serum cytokine profiles of CBA mice was carried out 1, 5, 24, and 48 h after intraperitoneal injection of killed culture of different streptococcus A types. The production of cytokines in response to different streptococcus types varied. The highest level was recorded in response to types 1M and 3T+M, more often detected in invasive(More)
AIM Evaluation of the ability to form biofilms by various M, T and MT-types of group A streptococci (GAS), as well as study of the effect of various antibiotics on biofilm formation. MATERIALS AND METHOD 43 strains of various M and T type GAS were studied. The cultures were grown in Todd-Hewitt broth with the addition of 0.5% yeast extract. Comparative(More)
Dynamics of IL-6 level was studied in blood serum of CBA mice receiving intraperitoneal injections of killed and live culture of group A Streptococcus and its supernatants. It was found that administration of killed culture was followed by a significant rise in IL-6 level (by 4.7 times in 1 h and by 9.3 times in 5 h in comparison with the control). By 24 h,(More)
Effects of Miramistin and Phosprenil on biofilms of S. pyogenes, S. aureus, E. coli, L. acidophilus, and L. plantarum were studied. Significant differences in the effects of these substances on mature biofilms of microorganisms and the process of their formation were observed. Miramistin had significant inhibiting effects on the forming of biofilms and on(More)
