morganella morganii: epidemiology of bacteremic disease.a retrospective review of microbiology records revealed 19 documented episodes of m. morganii bacteremia in 18 patients at a veterans administration hospital during a 5.5 year period. thirteen of 19 bacteremias were related to nosocomial infections; 11 of the 13 nosocomial bacteremias occurred in surgical patients. nine of the 13 patients with nosocomial bacteremia had received recent therapy with a beta-lactam antibiotic. the most common source of bacteremia was a postoperative wound infection ...19846561180
treatment of experimental chronic osteomyelitis caused by morganella morganii with mezlocillin and cloxacillin.mezlocillin was used alone and in combination with cloxacillin in the treatment of chronic experimental osteomyelitis due to morganella morganii. this combination showed in vitro synergy as measured by the checkerboard technique. a marked inoculum affect was demonstrated in vitro with mezlocillin and the infecting strain of m. morganii. in therapeutic trials, mezlocillin administered for 28 days was totally ineffective. the combination of mezlocillin and cloxacillin (at 800 and 400 mg/kg, respec ...19846563980
in vitro antagonism between n-formimidoyl thienamycin and aztreonam, ticarcillin and ticarcillin/clavulanic eighty-seven bacterial strains were tested by the two-disk-agar diffusion method for the interaction between n-formimidoyl thienamycin and aztreonam, ticarcillin and ticarcillin-clavulanic acid. an antagonism between n-formimidoyl thienamycin and the other 3 beta-lactams was noted in half of the evaluable tests, especially against pseudomonas, escherichia coli and morganella.19846594965
influence of spontaneous and inducible beta-lactamase production on the antimicrobial activity of recently developed beta-lactam compounds.the activity of 9 recently developed beta-lactam compounds was evaluated in 185 ampicillin-resistant isolates of enterobacteriaceae. moreover, in all strains, spontaneous and inducible beta-lactamase production was quantified and correlated with the minimal inhibitory concentration (mic) of each compound. in most species, no correlation could be observed between spontaneously produced beta-lactamase and the mics, with the only exceptions of serratia spp. and morganella morganii isolates for meth ...19846610539
the effect of piperacillin prophylaxis on the colonic microflora in patients undergoing colorectal surgery.piperacillin was given parenterally in doses of 4 g every 8 h for two days to 20 patients undergoing colorectal surgery. a series of serum and fecal specimens were taken to analyse piperacillin concentrations. tissue samples from the gut wall were taken during surgery. the maximum serum concentrations during surgery were reached 15 min after piperacillin administration. on day 0 the mean half-life was 1.9 h and the mean area under the serum concentration curve was 536.8 mg/l. the piperacillin co ...19836642676
effect of 7 alpha substitution of cephems on their beta-lactamase stability and affinity for penicillin-binding proteins in morganella morganii.cephamycins, which have a methoxy group at the 7 alpha position of their cephalosporin nuclei, were highly stable against hydrolysis by a beta-lactamase purified from a clinical isolate of morganella morganii, whereas their 7 alpha-h analogs were rapidly hydrolyzed by the enzyme. the high stability of the cephamycins was not due to their low affinity for the enzyme, since the cephamycins strongly inhibited the enzyme in a competitive manner. in cases in which the 7 alpha-methoxy group was substi ...19836602587
nonspecific induction of beta-lactamase in enterobacter cloacae.since the introduction of the new beta-lactamase-stable beta-lactam compounds, inducible beta-lactamases have become increasingly important clinically [1]. it has recently been pointed out that most beta-lactam antibiotics appear to be affected by these derepressed enzymes either by hydrolysis or by the nonhydrolytic barrier mechanism [2]. until now, it has generally been assumed that beta-lactamases are induced only by the beta-lactam compounds themselves. we investigated an e cloacae strain th ...19836605393

serious nosocomial infection caused by morganella morganii and proteus mirabilis in a cardiac surgery july and august 1981, five patients in the cardiac surgery unit of the bristol royal infirmary developed septicemia caused by morganella morganii, proteus mirabilis, or both of these species. three of the patients had serious wound infections, and three of the patients died. typing of the m. morganii isolates by o-serotyping and of the p. mirabilis isolates by o-serotyping, proticine production and sensitivity, and the dienes reaction confirmed cross infection by both species. although m. mor ...19836350354
beta-lactamase inhibitory activity of iodopenicillanate and bromopenicillanate.iodopenicillanate and bromopenicillanate were shown to be effective inhibitors of a variety of beta-lactamases. staphylococcus aureus isolates were synergistically inhibited by iodopenicillanate and bromopenicillanate combined with ampicillin. methicillin-resistant s. aureus was not synergistically inhibited. escherichia coli which possessed tem beta-lactamase activity had a reduction in ampicillin minimal inhibitory concentration, but an e. coli isolate which had chromosomal beta-lactamase and ...19836299186
comparison of the lipoprotein gene among the enterobacteriaceae. dna sequence of morganella morganii lipoprotein gene and its expression in escherichia coli.a dna sequence of 532 base pairs encompassing the entire morganella morganii lipoprotein gene (lpp) was determined. sequence comparisons of the m. morganii lpp gene with the lpp genes from escherichia coli, serratia marcescens, and erwinia amylovora reveal that the m. morganii lpp gene is more distantly related to the e. coli lpp gene than any of the other lpp genes examined. between the e. coli and m. morganii lpp genes, the following homologies were found: 44% in the promoter region (bases, -4 ...19836305973
