The aim of the study was to determine the optimum conditions for brown pigment formation by Kluyveromyces marxianus and Streptomyces chibaensis. Pigment formation was followed during the time course experiment in medium contains 20 g/l D-xylose as carbon source, 12 g/l of a mixture of peptone and yeast extract as a nitrogen source at pH 5.0 when incubated(More)
The production and properties of biosurfactants synthesized by Halobacillus dabanensis and Pontibacillus chungwhensi, isolated from oil-contaminated mangrove sediments of Avicennia marina, Red Sea (Egypt) have been investigated. The two strains were classified as moderate halophile and halotolerant, respectively. The produced biosurfactants were considered(More)
Carbenicillin and gentamicin were tested on rats experimentally burned and infected by a selected strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Carbenicillin injection was found to be the best treatment as it decreased pus formation and enhanced healing. Gentamicin was less effective than carbenicillin. The use of hydrophilic base ointment containing antibiotics is(More)
The study of the bacteriological profile, the association of complement C3, interleukin-1beta, and zinc therapy of diabetic foot ulcers (type two) was investigated. Twenty diabetics without foot ulcers (group I), 50 diabetics with foot ulcers (group II), and 10 matched normal controls (group III) were enrolled in this study. Diabetic foot ulcers were mostly(More)
