OBJECTIVES Fractures of facial bones in children are relatively uncommon although both children and adults are subjected to similar types of injuries. This study aims to evaluate the epidemiology of facial bone fractures among children under 14 years, their management and outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study included maxillofacial(More)
MRSA causes 60-70% of Staphylococcus aureus infection in hospitals and it has developed resistance against the currently available drugs. Interestingly, a series of 35 metronidazole-triazole hybrids on screening against MRSA were found to be active. Compound 22 was found to be effective at 4 μg/mL concentration against nine strains of MRSA. The inhibitory(More)
Phenotypic screening led to the identification of calcimycin as a potent inhibitor of Mycobacterium bovis BCG (M. bovis BCG) growth in vitro and in THP-1 cells. In the present study, we aim to decipher the mechanism of antimycobacterial activity of calcimycin. We noticed that treatment with calcimycin led to up-regulation of different autophagy markers like(More)
Inorganic polyphosphate (PolyP) plays an essential role in microbial stress adaptation, virulence and drug tolerance. The genome of Mycobacterium tuberculosis encodes for two polyphosphate kinases (PPK-1, Rv2984 and PPK-2, Rv3232c) and polyphosphatases (ppx-1, Rv0496 and ppx-2, Rv1026) for maintenance of intracellular PolyP levels. Microbial polyphosphate(More)
