The molecular mechanisms underlying entry of group B Streptococci (GBS) into human endothelial cells are not yet fully understood. This study is centered on the triggering of signaling cascade in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) during their interaction with different GBS serotypes/strains (type III: 80340-vagina and 90356-CSF and type V:(More)
The mechanism by which group B Streptococcus (GBS) interacts with human cells and disrupts physiological processes is an intriguing area of investigation and continues to unfold. The aim of this study was to investigate the adherence and intracellular viability within endothelial ECV304 cells of GBS serotypes Ia, III and V isolates from patients and(More)
Bacterial multiresistance is a health problem worldwide that demands new antimicrobials for treating bacterial-related infections. In this study, we evaluated the antimicrobial activity and the theoretical toxicology profile of N-substituted-phenylamino-5-methyl-1H-1,2,3-triazole-4-carbohydrazide derivatives against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria(More)
BACKGROUND Over the last few years, fungal infections have emerged as a worrisome global public health problem. Candidiasis is a disease caused by Candida species and has been a problem worldwide mainly for immunosuppressed patients. Lately, the resistant strains and side effects have been reported as important issues for treating Candidiasis, which have to(More)
Herpes simplex virus is an important human pathogen responsible for a range of diseases from mild uncomplicated mucocutaneous infections to life-threatening ones. Currently, the emergence of Herpes simplex virus resistant strains increased the need for more effective and less cytotoxic drugs for Herpes treatment. In this work, we synthesized a series of(More)
BACKGROUND Dapsone is described as being active against Mycobacterium leprae, hence its role in the treatment of leprosy and related pathologies. Despite its therapeutic potential, the low solubility of dapsone in water results in low bioavailability and high microbial resistance. Nanoemulsions are pharmaceutical delivery systems derived from micellar(More)
Endothelial dysfunction is a major component of the pathophysiology of septicaemic group B Streptococcus (GBS) infections. Although cytokines have been shown to activate human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs), the capacity of interferon (IFN)-γ to enhance the microbicidal activity of HUVECs against GBS has not been studied. We report that the(More)
This study assessed the cell viability of the inoculation vehicle of BACCOR (a combination of sulfate-reducing bacteria plus a culture media for bacteria), a biopharmaceutical product under development for dental use as aid in fractured endodontic file removal from the root canal. Different culture media for bacteria were evaluated: modified Postgate E(More)
