Chronic prostatitis syndrome (CPS) is a common urologic condition that many clinicians find difficult to diagnose and treat effectively. The most common causative agents of CPS among Gram-positive bacteria are coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS). We compared phenotypic properties among CNS isolated from semen of healthy men and patients with CPS. A(More)
AIM To investigate the incidence of microorganisms of different taxonomic groups and their associations in the pelvic and bladder urine of adult urolithiasis patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS A bacteriological method and metagenomic sequencing were used to investigate the bacterial spectrum of microflora cultured from pelvic and bladder urine sampled during(More)
This study reports the detection of an extracellular staphylococcal product, designated secretory inhibitor of platelet microbicidal protein (SIPMP), that causes local inhibition of the bactericidal action of platelet microbicidal protein (PMP) in the fluid phase. Urethral isolates of Staphylococcus aureus (n=24) and coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS)(More)
We compared the potential phenotypic properties of coryneform bacteria associated with chronic prostatitis syndrome (CPS), such as secretory inhibitor of lysozyme (SIL) and secretory inhibitor of platelet microbicidal protein (SIPMP). A total of 110 clinical isolates of coryneform bacteria isolated from the seminal fluid of healthy men and men with CPS were(More)
Chronic prostatitis syndrome (CPS) is a common urologic condition that many clinicians find difficult to diagnose and treat effectively. The information about the composition of the flora of the seminal fluid in healthy men and patients with CPS is limited. The aim of this study was to define the microbial communities present in the seminal fluid of healthy(More)
AIM To report the detection in vitro of secretory inhibitor of platelet microbicidal protein (SIPMP) phenotypes of urethral isolates along with a comparison with isolates from patients with or without chronic bacterial prostatitis (CBP). METHODS Urethral isolates of Staphylococcus spp. (n=4), diphtheroids (n=28), micrococci (n=15), streptococci (n=21),(More)
BACKGROUND Antiseptic agents are widely used in hospitals and are essential when prevention and control of nosocomial infections is required. It is necessary to consider several aspects that affect the biocide activity because they have direct impact on the nosocomial infection rate. Organisms belonging to the Staphylococcus genus are involved in such(More)
