[kinetics of setting up of a human fecal flora in germ free mice and trial of decontamination of antibiotherapy (author's transl)].we have tried in this study to reproduce in germfree mice a bacterial equilibrium observed previously in the gastrointestinal tract of child "l.n.", reared in a plastic isolator. eight bacterial strains were studied. seven had been fortuitously introduced: acinetobacter lwoffi ln1, staphylococcus epidermidis ln2, clostridium perfringens ln3, plectridium anatum ln4, streptococcus bovis ln5, enterobacter cloacae ln6, corynebacterium sp ln7. the eighth strain was purposely administered to the child ...1975174472
susceptibility of isolates of acinetobacter anitratus and acinetobacter lwoffii to the bactericidal activity of normal human serum.the bactericidal activity of normal human serum against the gram-negative coccobacilli acinetobacter anitratus and acinetobacter lwoffii was studied; 12% and 84%, respectively, of the tested strains appeared to be sensitive. thus, serum resistance may be an important factor contributing to the pathogenic potential of a. anitratus strains. three types of bactericidal action were shown. in the first, the strains were killed when the alternative complement pathway was activated. in the second, some ...19921515154
late intraphagosomal hydrogen ion concentration favors the in vitro antimicrobial capacity of a 37-kilodalton cationic granule protein of human neutrophil granulocytes.we described previously (w.m. shafer, l.e. martin, and j.k. spitznagel, infect. immun. 45:29-35, 1984) the presence of a 37-kilodalton cationic antimicrobial protein (37k cap) in extracts of granules prepared from human polymorphonuclear granulocytes (pmn). in this investigation, we prepared 37k cap from pmn granule extracts by sequential ion-exchange and molecular-sieve chromatography and examined its antimicrobial activity against a number of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. at concen ...19863527987
comparative in vitro activity of faropenem and 11 other antimicrobial agents against 405 aerobic and anaerobic pathogens isolated from skin and soft tissue infections from animal and human bites.faropenem, a new oral beta-lactam agent with a penem structure, was very active against 405 aerobic and anaerobic bite isolates. it inhibited 232 of 236 (98%) aerobic isolates, including all pasteurella spp. and eikenella corrodens at < or = 0.25 mg/l, and 164/169 (97%) anaerobic isolates, at < or = 1 mg/l. the 10 isolates that required > or = 2 mg/l for inhibition were one strain each of acinetobacter lwoffi, corynebacterium minutissimum, bacteroides ovatus, lactobacillus delbrueckii and peptos ...200212205068
oxa-134, a naturally occurring carbapenem-hydrolyzing class d beta-lactamase from acinetobacter lwoffii.acinetobacter lwoffii, a species whose natural habitat is the human skin, intrinsically possesses a chromosomal gene encoding a carbapenem-hydrolyzing class d β-lactamase, oxa-134. this species may therefore constitute a reservoir for carbapenemase genes that may spread among other acinetobacter species.201020837764
a novel influenza a h1n1 clinical manifestations in patients at chiang mai university describe the clinical manifestations of patients affected with a novel influenza a (h1n1 2009) during the pandemic.201121863671
distribution of acinetobacter species on skin of healthy humans.the distribution of the 19 currently known genospecies of acinetobacter on human skin, i.e. forehead, forearm and toe webs, was determined. three selective media were compared for their specificity for all genospecies of acinetobacter. a minimal-salts agar supplemented with 1% acetate proved to be more efficient than the leeds medium for the isolation of most genospecies in mixed culture with other bacterial species. acinetobacter isolates were provisionally identified using biochemical tests an ...199910357050
distribution of acinetobacter species on human skin: comparison of phenotypic and genotypic identification least 19 genomic species are recognized as constituting the genus acinetobacter. however, little is known about the natural reservoirs of the various members of the genus. an epidemiological study was therefore performed to investigate the colonization with acinetobacter spp. of the skin and mucous membranes of 40 patients hospitalized in a cardiology ward and 40 healthy controls. single samples were obtained once from each of nine different body sites, i.e., forehead, ear, nose, throat, axil ...19979350741
