The antibacterial activity of sixteen Chilean red wines (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Merlot, Cabernet Organic and Pinot Noir), and the active extracts of two randomly selected wines were assayed for their antibacterial activity on six strains of Helicobacter pylori isolated from gastric biopsies. The active fraction of the wines was obtained by(More)
Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs) are of nutritional interest because they are crucial for normal development of the central nervous system and have potential long-lasting effects that extend beyond the period of dietary insufficiency. Here we review the recent literature and current recommendations regarding LCPUFAs as they pertain to(More)
BACKGROUND bacterial diversity of the stomach includes various species. Among them, Helicobacter pylori, a microorganism which has been associated to gastric diseases, is frequently isolated in this habitat. In addition, Lactobacillus spp., a genus including probiotic strains, has also been documented in this habitat. The co-existence of these two species(More)
Several bacterial species have developed physiological response to avoid the cellular damage when are exposed to carbon starvation or frozen stress. For example survival to inanition has been related to endogenous substrates consumptions. The aim of this study was to evaluate if poly-β-hydroxylkanoates (PHA) consumption enable Sphingopyxis chilensis S37 to(More)
BACKGROUND Helicobacter pylori-associated gastroduodenal diseases depends on host characteristics, environmental conditions and bacterial virulence factors, such as cagA, vacA y babA2 gene products. Moreover, peptic ulcer disease has been related with cagA+, vacAs1m1 strains, while metaplasia and gastric cancer has been associated to cagA+, vacAs1 and(More)
We report the first clinical case of transplantation of autologous bone marrow-derived cells in vitro exposed to a novel recombinant human transforming growth factor (rhTGF)-beta1 fusion protein bearing a collagen-binding domain (rhTGF-beta(1)-F2), dexamethasone (DEX) and beta-glycerophosphate (beta-GP). When such culture-expanded cells were loaded into(More)
Helicobacter pylori infection in man is associated with chronic gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. The virulence factors of the species are still under investigation. Among these, the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is a potential pathogenic factor of the micro-organism, whose biological activity can be estimated by immunological parameters. The aim of this study(More)
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a Gram negative pathogen that selectively colonizes the human gastric epithelium. Over 50% of the world population is infected with H. pylori reaching up to 90% of infected individuals in developing countries. Nonetheless the increased impact upon public health care, its reservoir and the transmission pathway of the(More)
Acinetobacter baumannii, mainly biotype 9, is an important nosocomial opportunist pathogen in Chile and other countries. The biological basis of its virulence and prevalence is still unknown. As lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is often associated with virulence, some biological properties of purified LPS from seven nosocomial isolates, comprising four isolates of(More)
