Thymus vulgaris Extract Effect on Blood TNF-α and IL-10 Level and Bacterial Colonies in Escherichia coli Infected Mice Urinary Bladder

  title={Thymus vulgaris Extract Effect on Blood TNF-$\alpha$ and IL-10 Level and Bacterial Colonies in Escherichia coli Infected Mice Urinary Bladder},
  author={A Saadawi},
The Thymus vulgaris extracts are effective as anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and antifungal. E. coli is a major pathogen involved in nosocomial infections and one of multi-drug resistance organisms. UTI is the most common extraintestinal E. coli infections and is caused by uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC). This study aimed to prove the Thymus vulgaris ethanol extract effect in increasing IL-10 and decreasing TNF-α and bacterial colonies in the urinary bladder. All…

Enhancement of Susceptibility to Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 by Protein Calorie Malnutrition in Mice

Findings strongly indicate that PCM-induced nondevelopment of intestinal physical barrier is one of the predisposing factors for infection with Stx-producing E. coli O157:H7 in mice and suggest that the mouse model may explain the high incidence of infection in children whose intestinal epithelia have not yet completely developed.

Some Herbal Medicinal Plants Activity against Candida spp which Resistance to Antifungal Drugs

Some medicinal plant that used as antibacterial in Iraq has been experimented as antifungal, five of these plants include Zingiber officinale, Salvia officinalis, Origanum vulgare , Glycyrrihza

Prevalence of Escherichia coli and Citrobacter freundii in Raw Beef from major Abattoirs located in Damascus and countryside, Syria

It must be used good healthy measures like, periodic cleaning for tools and surfaces contact to the meat during skinning and slicing of the meat in order to reduce the potential contamination.

Modulation of Cytokine Production and Transcription Factors Activities in Human Jurkat T Cells by Thymol and Carvacrol.

Thymol and carvacrol could contribute to modulation of T cell activity by reducing IL-2 and IFN-γ production possibly through down regulation of AP-1 and NFAT-2 transcription factors suggesting their potential usefulness for reduction of Tcell overactivity in immune-mediated diseases.

Levels of Inhibitors of Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha and Interleukin 1β in Urine and Sera of Patients with Urosepsis

Findings indicate that during urosepsis, the antiinflammatory cytokine response is generated predominantly at the systemic level.

Molecular Characterization of Uropathogenic Escherichia coli: Nalidixic Acid and Ciprofloxacin Resistance, Virulent Factors and Phylogenetic Background.

This is the first report from India that has indicated possible evidence on horizontal gene transfer from pathogenic to commensal strains and selection of the latter, on extensive usage of this group of antimicrobials in hospital settings, where these drugs were routinely prescribed for treating urinary tract infection.

IL-10 and the Dangers of Immune Polarization: Excessive Type 1 and Type 2 Cytokine Responses Induce Distinct Forms of Lethal Immunopathology in Murine Schistosomiasis

It is demonstrated that IL-10 significantly suppresses type 1 and type 2 cytokine development in IL-4- and IL-12- deficient mice, respectively, thereby impeding the development of severe egg-induced pathology in the single cytokine-deficient animals.

Strong inflammatory cytokine response in male and strong anti-inflammatory response in female kidney transplant recipients with urinary tract infection.

Gender-related urine cytokine patterns were found and male renal transplant recipients with UTI have a strong inflammatory cytokine response with activation of IL-6, IL-8, s IL-2R and sIL-6R producing cells, whereas female patients withUTI block the inflammatory response to UTI by production of sIL -1RA.

Effect of Essential Oils on Pathogenic Bacteria

The increasing resistance of microorganisms to conventional chemicals and drugs is a serious and evident worldwide problem that has prompted research into the identification of new biocides with

Host–microbe interactions that shape the pathogenesis of Acinetobacter baumannii infection

This review highlights some of the key attributes of A. baumannii virulence with an emphasis on bacterial interactions with the innate immune system.
