Aspects of Bacterial Resistance to Silver

  title={Aspects of Bacterial Resistance to Silver},
  author={S. S{\"u}tterlin},
Bacterial resistance to antibiotics has increased rapidly within recent years, and it has become a serious threat to public health. Infections caused by multi-drug resistant bacteria entail higher ... 
Presence of Silver Resistance Genes is not associated with Minimum Inhibitory Concentration of Silver Nanoparticles against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli
Background and objectives: Drug resistance in Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli, as severe pathogenic bacteria, has become a health challenge. However, nanoparticles have been introduced asExpand
Screening of Silver-Tolerant Bacteria from a Major Philippine Landfill as Potential Bioremediation Agents
Abstract The field of microbial biotechnology has revolutionized the utilization of microorganisms to overcome the problems of environmental pollutions. The present study aimed to identifyExpand

Adverse effects of nanosilver on human health and the environment.
This manuscript is in line with the scope of the Journal, enabling a better understanding of the biological response to a widely-used bionanomaterial, and provides a bigger picture of the link between surface properties and biocompatibility of nanosilver in different forms. Expand
Influence of titanium dioxide modification on the antibacterial properties
Abstract Antibacterial properties of 15 titania photocatalysts, mono- and dual-modified with nitrogen and carbon were examined. Amorphous TiO2, supplied by Azoty Group Chemical Factory Police S.A.,Expand
Evaluation of central venous catheters coated with a noble metal alloy—A randomized clinical pilot study of coating durability, performance and tolerability
In this pilot study the BIP CVC had significantly lower AEs and showed a comparable performance to the standard CVC, and the coating was durable throughout the study length and toxicological evaluation showed good safety margins. Expand
Long-term use of noble metal alloy coated urinary catheters reduces recurrent CAUTI and decreases proinflammatory markers
Long-term use of a NMA-coated catheter, coated with a noble metal alloy of gold, silver, and palladium, was associated with cessation of frequent CAUTIs and the catheter was experienced as comfortable and inflammatory markers were reduced with time. Expand
Photocatalytic and antibacterial activities of silver and iron doped titania nanoparticles in solution and polyaspartic coatings.
Ag doped nTiO2 samples delivered the best and excellent antibacterial action, even in the dark, attributed to both an enhanced band gap and surface area, as well as a combination of photocatalytic activity and Ag being present at the nanoparticle's surface. Expand
What’s the Problem? Odor-control and the Smell of Sweat in Sportswear
Abstract Sport and fitness are increasing in popularity, and so is awareness of body odor. Both are aspects people wish to gain control over, as promised by the marketing of sportswear withExpand

The re-emergence of infection due to multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria in critically ill patients presents particular challenges to clinicians, given the lack of a pipeline of newExpand
Dissemination of Clonally Related Escherichia coli Strains Expressing Extended-Spectrum β-Lactamase CTX-M-15
E. coli ST131 and ST405 and multidrug-resistant IncFII plasmids may determine spread of this lactamase.
Mechanism of resistance to silver ions in Klebsiella pneumoniae
AgNO3 at a concentration of 40 micrograms/ml decreased the succinate dehydrogenase activity in susceptible and resistant strains by 100 and 18%, respectively, suggesting more than one resistance mechanism may be involved. Expand
Development of Resistance during Antimicrobial Therapy Caused by Insertion Sequence Interruption of Porin Genes
ABSTRACT We have demonstrated by using an in vitro approach that interruption of the OmpK36 porin gene by insertion sequences (ISs) is a common type of mutation that causes loss of porin expressionExpand
Bacterial multidrug efflux transporters.
The current knowledge of individual pump components of the Cus system, a paradigm for efflux machinery, is described and speculation on how RND pumps assemble to fight diverse antimicrobials is speculated. Expand

In summary, emerging resistance has required adaptations and modifications of laboratory diagnostic techniques, empiric anti-infective therapy for such diseases as bacterial meningitis, and infection control measures in health care facilities of all kinds. Expand
Silver Enhances Antibiotic Activity Against Gram-Negative Bacteria
This work shows that silver can be used to enhance the action of existing antibiotics against Gram-negative bacteria, thus strengthening the antibiotic arsenal for fighting bacterial infections. Expand
Plasmid-determined silver resistance in Pseudomonas stutzeri isolated from a silver mine
A silver-resistant strain of Pseudomonas stutzeri was isolated from a silver mine. It harbored three plasmids, the largest of which (pKK1; molecular weight, 49.4 X 10(6)) specified silver resistance.Expand
Integrons and β-lactamases a novel perspective on resistance
This work has suggested that selection of potent beta-lactamases through the use of non-beta- lactam agents may be possible through integron-mediated resistance. Expand
Why are antibiotic resistance genes so resistant to elimination?
The euphoria produced by the discovery of antibiotics led to confident predictions that bacterial diseases would soon be conquered and could thus be safely forgotten, leaving scientists free toExpand
