The principal objective of this study was to determine the in vitro antibacterial activity of the water-soluble protein enzymatic hydrolysates and the ethanol (EtOH)-extracted fraction obtained from fly-maggots (Musca domestica L.) against MRSA (methicillin- resistant Staphylococcus aureus) strains and VRE (Vancomycin-resistant enterococci) 5117 strain. The water soluble protein enzymatic hydrolysates were prepared via 4 or 8 hr of incubation after mixing with the water-soluble protein…

Identification of proteins in housefly (Musca domestica) larvae powder by LC-MS/MS and their potential medical relevance

A variety of highly trusted proteins, including catalysis-related proteins, antioxidant proteins and antimicrobial peptides, which may be closely related to the anti-tumor, anti-bacterial,Anti-oxidant and other pharmacological effects of HL are identified.

Rapid detection of live methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus by using an integrated microfluidic system capable of ethidium monoazide pre-treatment and molecular diagnosis.

The microfluidic system has been demonstrated to have 100% specificity to detect live MRSA with S. aureus and other pathogens commonly found in hospitals, and may be a powerful tool for the rapid molecular diagnosis ofLive MRSA.

Blowfly Strike and Maggot Therapy: From Parasitology to Medical Treatment

Although there is no clear evidence that debridement is useful for wound healing at all, several techniques are in use and one of these is forced myiasis, MDT, which is a very efficient debridements technique and otherwise necessary amputations are avoided in some cases.



Effect of certain bioactive plant extracts on clinical isolates of β‐lactamase producing methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus

Ethanolic extracts and some fractions from 10 Indian medicinal plants, known for antibacterial activity, were investigated for their ability to inhibit clinical isolates of β‐lactamase producing

Resistances of antibiotics and heavy metals in Enterobacteriaceae spp. isolated from gills and intestines of Achanthobrama marmid (Heckel,1843) from Sir Dam lake Turkey.

Viable counts of antibiotic resistant bacteria isolated from gill and intestinal content samples showed high frequencies of resistance to Penicilline-G (KP) (68%), CZ (54%), FOX (48%), while the proportion of CRO (39%) and CTX (36%) resistance was low.

Antibacterial properties of larval secretions of the blowfly, Lucilia sericata

These secretions of larvae of the greenbottle fly Lucilia sericata were shown to be highly stable as a freeze‐dried preparation and may be a source of novel antibiotic‐like compounds that may be used for infection control and in the fight against MRSA.

Antibiotic Susceptibility of Haemophilus vaginalis (Corynebacterium vaginale) to 21 Antibiotics

A total of 56 strains of Haemophilus vaginalis were tested for their in vitro susceptibility to 21 antimicrobial agents by an agar dilution method and all strains exhibited minimal inhibitory concentrations of ≥128 μg when tested against colistin, nalidixic acid, and sulfadiazine.
