In this study, we used nitrogen-doped titanium dioxide (N-TiO2) NPs in conjugation with visible light, and show that both reactive oxygen species (ROS) and autophagy are induced by this novel NP-based photodynamic therapy (PDT) system. While well-dispersed N-TiO2 NPs (≤100 μg/ml) were inert, their photo-activation with visible light led to ROS-mediated(More)
OBJECTIVES Horizontal transfer of integrons is one of the important factors that can contribute to the occurrence of multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of integrons among MDR Escherichia coli strains isolated from stool specimens and investigate the associations between the existence of integrons and MDR(More)
Streptococcus pneumoniae is a leading cause of respiratory tract infections, including pneumonia. In recent years, due to the incidence of resistance to commonly used antibiotics, quinolones have been taken into consideration in treatment of S. pneumoniae. The present study aimed to investigate the quinolone resistance rate among pneumococcus isolates from(More)
