A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a bacterial infection that affects any part of the urinary tract. When it affects the lower urinary tract it is known as a simple cystitis (a bladder infection) and when it affects upper urinary tract it is known as pyelonephritis (a kidney infection). UTI has become the most common hospital-acquired infection, accounting for as many as 35% of nosocomial infections, and they are the second most common cause of bacteremia in hospitalized patients (Samm and… 
Studies on Efficiency of Medicinal Plants against Bacteria Isolated from Urinary Tract Infection
TLDR
The incidence of UTI is greater in women than men, which may be either due to anatomical predisposition or urothelial mucosal adherence to the muco-polysaccharide lining or other host factors.
BACTERIA ASSOCIATED WITH URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS AND THEIR SUSCEPTIBILITY TO HERBAL EXTRACTS
In the present study 500 urine samples were collected from different diagnostic laboratories of Hyderabad, India. 350 urine samples were scored as positive UTI and a total of 211 bacterial cultures

In this work: the aim of this study was to investigate the antibacterial activity of Genistein and Quercetin against pathogens of the urinary tract infection. An in vitro study was carried out using
IN VITRO ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF GENISTEINAND QUERCETIN AGAINST ESCHERICHIA COLI ISOLATED FROM CLINICAL SAMPLES
Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the antibacterial activity of Genistein and Quercetin against pathogens of the urinary tract infection (UTI). Methods: An in vitro study was
In vitro Antibacterial and Antifungal Activities of the Saudi Lawsonia inermis Extracts Against Some Nosocomial Infection Pathogens
TLDR
The results of this study support the use of Lawsonia inermis plant in traditional medicine to treat bacterial and fungal diseases and this plant could be a source of new antibiotic compounds.
Antimicrobial Activity in vitro of Aqueous Extracts of Oregano (Origanum vulgare L.) and Thyme (Thymus vulgaris L.)
The wide use of different antibiotic agents for therapy and prophylaxis of bacterial diseases in animals led to selection of resistant microorganisms. Because of this problem Committee for Veterinary

TLDR
Results from the in vitro evaluation of the antibacterial and antifungal activities of six plant extracts partly support and justify the traditional use of these plant extracts for treating infections in traditional medicine.

TLDR
Decisions regarding antibiotic agents should be individualized based on patients' allergies, tolerability, community resistance rates, cost, and availability.

TLDR
Asymptomatic bacteriuria or asymPTomatic funguria may be limited to colonization of the urine without an apparent inflammatory response, and should be considered to be an asymptoma infection when accompanied by pyuria.
Increasing antimicrobial resistance in Escherichia coli isolates from community-acquired urinary tract infections during 1998-2003 in Manisa, Turkey.
TLDR
The aim of this study was to determine the change in antimicrobial susceptibility of Escherichia coli isolates from patients with community-acquired urinary tract infection (UTI) for the years 1998 through 2003 and to suggest that the current empirical antibiotic therapy used for these patients is inappropriate.
Host pathogenesis in urinary tract infections.
TLDR
Genotypic traits for epithelial cell receptivity may be a major susceptibility factor in UTIs, and the presence or absence of blood group determinants on the surface of uroepithelial cells may influence an individual's susceptibility to UTIs.

TLDR
UTI elevates the risk of pyelonephritis, premature delivery, and fetal mortality among pregnant women, and is associated with impaired renal function and end-stage renal disease among pediatric patients, and the estimated annual cost of community-acquired UTI is significant, at approximately $1.6 billion.
Antibiotic Susceptibility of Bacterial Strains Isolated from Patients with Community-Acquired Urinary Tract Infections in France
TLDR
The findings indicate that these strains can spread within the community; therefore, monitoring antibiotic susceptibility of bacteria isolated from adults with community-acquired urinary tract infections in France appears to be mandatory.
[Statistic studies on bacteria isolated from urinary tract infections (report 6: isolation rate and drug sensitivity from 1988 through 1989)].
TLDR
The bacteria isolated from urine of patients in the authors' department from 1988 though 1989 showed lower antimicrobial sensitivity than those isolated from the outpatients, and more S. aureus and Corynebacterium spp.
In vitro antibacterial activity of common antibiotics and herb extracts to clinical isolates of escherichia coli collected from UTI patients
TLDR
Herb extracts might be used as an alternative medicine to reduce the prevalence of E. coli causing Urinary Tract Infection in humans.
Urinary tract infections: disease panorama and challenges.
TLDR
An overview of the etiology and epidemiology of UTI, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, current management strategies, evolution of antimicrobial resistance, and current approaches to prevention is provided.
[Statistical studies on bacteria isolated from urinary tract infections (report 4)].
TLDR
The statistics and drug sensitivity tests of bacterial florae isolated from the urinary tract in 1983 and 1984 were reviewed and the major isolates (9 species) from the outpatients were more susceptible to the antimicrobial agents tested than those from the inpatients.
