The tracheal epithelium prevents via its highly effective clearance mechanism the contamination of the lower airways by pathogens. This mechanism is driven by ciliary bearing cells which are not only in contact with the gas phase; in addition they are also influenced by inflammatory mediators. These mediators can alter the protective function of the(More)
Staphylococcus aureus is a leading cause of skin and soft-tissue infections worldwide. Mice are the most commonly used animals for modeling human staphylococcal infections. However a supra-physiologic S. aureus inoculum is required to establish gross murine skin pathology. Moreover, many staphylococcal factors, including Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL)(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of Helicobacter pylori on the function of gastric mucous cells. H. pylori (10(4) to 10(7) CFU/well) was incubated with the mucin-producing gastric cell line HM02 for 12 and 24 h. Mucin synthesis and secretion were determined by the incorporation of D-N-[acetyl-(14)C]glucosamine into intracellular and(More)
