interdigital athlete's foot: new concepts in our view, interdigital athlete's foot usually begins with invasion of the horny layer by dermatophytes. because of hot weather, sweating, exercise, or tight shoes, enough moisture accumulates to stimulate an overgrowth of bacteria. large numbers of normally resident aerobic diphtheroids cause the common wet, macerated type of athlete's foot, while an overgrowth of gram-negative organisms, such as pseudomonas and proteus, is responsible for the more serious cases. the dry, scaly type (dermatop ...1977866279
treatment of hospita-acquired infections with amikacin.amikacin was used in the treatment of 56 serious gram-negative infections in 54 patients of whom 47 survived. in six of the seven nonsurvivors, the infections were under control at the time of death. the clinical isolates were multiple drug-resistant gram-negative organisms, with proteus rettgeri being most common. forty-five (80%) of these infections were nosocomial in origin, and the genitourinary tract was the source in 39 (70%). complications directly related to amikacin therapy were few and ...1977868903
[bacteriuria. bacteriological diagnosis and sensitivity to chemotherapeutic agents].in a brief introduction, methods for collecting urine and diagnosis criteria are reviewed. data relative to a study of about 10,000 samples of urine from patients admitted to various departments of the milan ca' granda hospital in 1975 are then reported. the frequencies of the various species of bacteria isolated in cases of bacteriuria are reported. those occurring most frequently were proteus (40.7%) of whose four species, proteus mirabilis and proteus rettgeri cover almost all cases, and esch ...1977869699
small nuclear rna localization during mitosis. an electron microscope study.the localization of small nuclear ribonucleic acids (snrnas) during mitosis in amoeba proteus was studied by high voltage (1,000 kv) electron microscope autoradiography. by suitable micromanipulations, the snrna's, labeled with [3h]uridine, were made to be the only radioactive molecules in the cell and thus easy to follow autoradiographically. during interphase the snrna label, which is almost exclusively nuclear, is distributed fairly uniformly through the nucleus with a slightly higher amount ...1977870500
staghorn calculi in children.nineteen children who underwent extensive nephrotomies and anatrophic nephrotomies for staghorn calculi (bilateral in 4 cases) are presented. proteus infection was the cause of the calculus in most cases. in the absence of recurrent stones, renal growth and function were excellent post-operatively. stone recurrence was minimal if all calculi were removed and infection was controlled. followup ranged from a few months to 13 years.1977875206

inducible high resistance to colistin in proteus strains.wild-type proteus strains are usually resistant to colistin. we have observed an increase in the level of colistin resistance in four clinical isolates of p. vulgaris, p. morganii, and p. rettgeri by prior treatment with subinhibitory concentrations of the drug. the enhanced resistance in these strains was lost after cultivating them in colistin-free medium, indicating that the enhanced resistance in the proteus group is inducible.1977883810
cutaneous microflora of patients with repeated skin infections.the microflora of normal skin in 16 patients with repeated staphylococcal and streptococcal skin infections was examined to determine whether abnormalities existed which would indicate a protective role for the indigenous flora against colonization by pathogens. five sites-hands, feet, axilla, groin and back-were examined quantitatively and qualitatively and compared with a control group. total populations of indigenous flora were significantly higher from patients with repeated skin infections ...1977886029
the effect of amniotic fluid on bacterial growth in three population groups.eighty-five amniotic fluid from women of three racial groups in the third trimester of pregnancy were each tested for antibacterial activity against escherichia coli, staphylococcus aureus, proteus mirabilis, streptococcus faecalis, and candida albicans. seventy-six per cent of fluid samples from white patients were inhibitory, while the corresponding figures for africans and indians were 33 and 52, respectively. of 19 african fluid samples tested against e. coli only, one proved inhibitory.1977888865
binding of [125i]concanavalin a by interspecific amoeba hybrids.two types of interspecific amoeba hybrids, viz. pnic (amoeba proteus nucleus in a. indica cytoplasm) and inpc (a. indica nucleus in a. proteus cytoplasm), were tested for their [125i]concanavalin a (con a) binding activity at different periods of time. the cell surface binding of the labelled con a was reduced to approx. 40 and 75% in the pnic and inpc cells, respectively, 96 h after the cells were made hybrids. a significant increase in the binding of radioactive con a was observed after the ho ...1977890742
biological and physicochemical properties of the lipopolysaccharide of chromatium vinosum.the lipopolysaccharide (lps) of chromatium vinosum has anticomplementary activity. this anticomplementary activity is destroyed by alkaline digestion of the lps and is suppressed by both mg2+ and ca2+ ions. treatment of the lps with ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, sodium deoxycholate, or dimethyl sulfoxide did not affect its toxicity toward mice; however, alkaline-treated lps was not toxic. treatment of the lps with sodium deoxycholate, dimethyl sulfoxide, or sodium dodecyl sulfate resulted in ...1977892903
antibacterial sensitivity patterns of bacteria isolated from dogs with otitis externa.from january, 1973, to december, 1975, the most prevalent microorganisms isolated from ear swab specimens taken from 323 dogs with otitis externa were staphylococcus aureus, pseudomonas aeruginosa, and proteus spp. comparison of the antibiograms of these isolants to those reported from england in 1961 and from the united states in 1970 suggested emergence of a greater proportion of bacterial strains with resistance to antibacterial agents commonly used to treat otitis externa of dogs.1977893222
