The most frequently encountered uropathogens are aerobic and facultative anaerobic Gram−negative bacteria mainly Escherichia coli. Proteus mirabilis is also an opportunistic Gram-negative uropathogen that infects the upper urinary tract. Coliforms and Proteus spp. currently cause 29% of nosocomial infections. In the present study was examined the effect of blueberry extract on some virulent properties of four strains Escherichia coli and six strains Proteus mirabilis which had been isolated… CONTINUE READING
