Enterococcus spp. : entre pathogènes opportunistes et probiotiques

  title={Enterococcus spp. : entre pathog{\`e}nes opportunistes et probiotiques},
  author={C. Isnard},
Les enterocoques, sont des bacteries commensales du tube digestif de l’homme et des animaux, mais certaines especes, comme Enterococcus faecium, sont aussi des pathogenes opportunistes majeurs souvent multi-resistants aux antibiotiques. Nous avons etudie l’impact de molecules non antibiotiques utilisees dans les unites de soins intensifs, sur la virulence et la resistance d’une souche clinique de E. faecium par une approche microscopique, une analyse du peptidoglycane et une analyse… 
Qualité physico-chimique et bactériologique des eaux souterraines et risques sanitaires dans quelques quartiers de Yaoundé VII, Cameroun
Au Cameroun, l’acces aux systemes d’alimentation en eau potable en milieu urbain apparait selectif. Les populations des quartiers situes en peripherie ont recours aux puits et sources pour assouvir
Physico-chemical and Bacteriological Quality of Boreholes and Evaluation of the Antibacterial Action of Disinfectants Used for the Microbiological Water Treatment
Water pollution is currently at the top of the environmental agenda. In this study, the main objectives were (i) to assess the physicochemical and bacteriological quality of well and borehole water
A mini-review on Pollution of water resources: causes and consequences
  • Environmental Science
  • 2020
Water is an indispensable resource for the continuation of life on planet earth and is one of the major challenges of the 21st century. However, it is threatened daily by pollution of all kinds. In


Antibiotic resistance in Enterococcus faecium clinical isolates
It is noteworthy that most modern isolates of E. faecium are highly resistant to ampicillin while a non-negligible proportion of them (depending on geographical locations) are resistant to glycopeptides (especially in the USA).
Bactericidal Activities of Two Daptomycin Regimens against Clinical Strains of Glycopeptide Intermediate-ResistantStaphylococcus aureus, Vancomycin-ResistantEnterococcus faecium, and Methicillin-ResistantStaphylococcus aureus Isolates in an In Vitro Pharmacodynamic Model with Simulated Endocardial V
The results of this study suggest that daptomycin demonstrates significant (P < 0.05) activity against gram-positive organisms in a simulated sequestered infection site.
Comparative Analysis of the First Complete Enterococcus faecium Genome
The complete 3.0-Mb genome sequence of the multilocus sequence type 17 vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium strain Aus0004, isolated from the bloodstream of a patient in Melbourne, Australia, in 1998, is reported.
The rise of the Enterococcus: beyond vancomycin resistance
The factors involved in the changing epidemiology of enterococcal infections are discussed, with an emphasis on Enterococcus faecium as an emergent and challenging nosocomial problem.
Twenty-five years of shared life with vancomycin-resistant enterococci: is it time to divorce?
Although control of VRE is challenging, a laissez-faire policy would result in an increased number of infections and would create an irreversible situation, and dissemination of glycopeptide-resistant Staphylococcus aureus with van genes acquired from resistant enterococci cannot be ruled out.
Emergence of Epidemic Multidrug-Resistant Enterococcus faecium from Animal and Commensal Strains
The epidemic hospital-adapted lineage is rapidly evolving and emerged approximately 75 years ago, concomitant with the introduction of antibiotics, from a population that included the majority of animal strains, and not from human commensal lines.
AsrR Is an Oxidative Stress Sensing Regulator Modulating Enterococcus faecium Opportunistic Traits, Antimicrobial Resistance, and Pathogenicity
Deletion of asrR was associated with a decreased oxidative stress resistance in vitro, which correlated with a reduced resistance to phagocytic killing by murine macrophages, and both strains showed similar amounts of intracellular reactive oxygen species.
Catecholamines increase conjugative gene transfer between enteric bacteria.
Comparative In Vitro Activities and Postantibiotic Effects of the Oxazolidinone Compounds Eperezolid (PNU-100592) and Linezolid (PNU-100766) versus Vancomycin against Staphylococcus aureus, Coagulase-Negative Staphylococci, Enterococcus faecalis, and Enterococcus faecium
Eperezolid and linezolid demonstrated good in vitro inhibitory activity, regardless of methicillin susceptibility for staphylococci or vancomycin susceptibility for enterococci, and were bacteriostatic in action in time-kill studies.
The antifungal caspofungin increases fluoroquinolone activity against Staphylococcus aureus biofilms by inhibiting N-acetylglucosamine transferase
The antifungal caspofungin improves the activity of fluoroquinolones against S. aureus biofilms and indicates that IcaA inhibitors could potentially be useful in the treatment of biofilm-related infections.
