bacteriology of chronic otitis media.tympanocentesis was performed in 50 patients with chronic otitis media; pus was cultured aerobically and anaerobically. only aerobes were isolated from 21 patients (42%), three patients had only anaerobes (peptococcus sp), and 25 patients (50%) had both aerobes and anaerobes. only one specimen had no growth. there were 68 aerobic isolates. pseudomonas aeruginosa was recovered in 36 patients (72%); other aerobes commonly recovered included proteus sp and staphylococcus aureus. there were 48 anaer ...1979759663
meso-alpha,epsilon-diaminopimelate d-dehydrogenase: distribution and the reaction product.a high activity of meso-alpha-epsilon-diaminopimelate dehydrogenase was found in extracts of bacillus sphaericus, brevibacterium sp., corynebacterium glutamicum, and proteus vulgaris among bacteria tested. b. sphaericus ifo 3525, in which the enzyme is most abundant, was chosen to study the enzyme reaction. the enzyme was not induced by the addition of meso-alpha-epsilon-diaminopimelate to the growth medium. the reaction product was isolated and identified as alpha-amino-epsilon-ketopimelate by ...1979762012
growth and electron microscopic studies on an experimentally established bacterial endosymbiosis in amoebae.a strain of nonsymbiotic a. proteus was infected with endosymbiotic bacteria isolated from another strain of amoeba which had become dependent on the symbionts after a few years of spontaneously established symbiosis. in the newly infected amoebae, the bacteria avoided digestion and multiplied at a faster rate than the hosts, reaching the maximum carrying number (about 42,000 per amoeba) in fewer than ten cell generations of the hosts. the experimentally infected amoebae were also examined under ...1979762201
[enzymatic quick determination of aminoglycoside antibiotics in serum].the therapeutic range of aminoglycoside antibiotics is relatively narrow; therefore short-term controls of serum concentrations can be recommended, particularly for high-dosage therapy and for renal insufficiency. for the aminoglycosides amicacin, gentamycin, sisomicin and tobramycin an enzymatic quick-determination test within 2 hrs is being described, which is based on the ph-deviation of a medium containing urea by hydrolytic activity of proteus mirabilis-bacteriae. in more than 180 measureme ...1976765289
bacteriocine typing of proteus.a method of typing isolates of proteus mirabilis and proteus vulgaris is described based on the sensitivity of the organisms to bacteriocine. twelve standard proteocine producing strains were selected from a large number of isolates tested, and from these liquid proteocine preparations were prepared. the sensitivities of 1805 isolates to these 12 preparations were then determined and none was found to be untypable. from the results a bacteriocine typing system has been developed.1975765360
sources of variance in the measurement of intrapulmonary killing of bacteria.sources of variability are described for a method used for the quantitative measurement of pulmonary resistance to inhaled bacteria in individual animals. factors contributing significantly to variability include aerosol exposure chamber design, bacterial species used for aerosol challenge, location of animals in the chamber, and individual intrapulmonary bacterial killing rates. laboratory error accounted for a small portion of the variance. the data demonstrate that with appropriate modificati ...1976765417

[bactericidal activity of serum and chemotherapy in sensitive and resistant exciter (author's transl)].comparing examinations with ampicillin sensitive and resistant bacteria-strains show that the bactericidal activity of serum is dependent on the bacteria-strains, on the ampicillin sensitivity of the particular exciter and on the number of bacteria/ml (germ count). bactericide effect could always be obtained with sensitive strains as a result of additional chemotherapy. with several resistant strains a bactericide effect could not be obtained in this case the continuous optimal ampicillin addit ...1975765704
[indanyl carbenicillin in the treatment of urinary tract infections due to difficult urological organisms (author's transl)].fifty in-patients suffering from chronic urinary tract infections with underlying urological diseases received the oral carbenicillin preparation indanyl carbenicillin (short term carindacillin) for 10 days in a dosage of 1 g q.i.d. the therapy results were objectified by blood and urine tests performed prior to and after treatment. indanyl carbenicillin led to a sterile urine in nearly 60% of the patients; in about 85% of the cases the primary organism was eliminated. the drug was particularly ...1976765706

[urinary infections following bladder catheterization].the incidence and the prophylaxis of urinary tract infection following bladder catheterization have been studied in 142 patients admitted for voiding cystourethrography (vcu). 71 children received a prophylactic treatment of 2 mg/kg nitrofurantoin daily for 4 days, while 71 received no treatment following bladder catheterization. bacteriologic examination of the urine 4-9 days after catheterization showed significant bacteriuria in 5 untreated children. the germs responsible were e. coli, proteu ...1975766175
[impairments of lipid metabolism in liver, kidney and heart tissues of mice infected with proteus vulgaris].intraperitoneal administration of proteus vulgaris living culture of various age (12 hrs and one day) caused impairments in lipid metabolism in mice liver, kidney and heart tissues. the one day-old culture was more toxic. the impairment in lipid metabolism was manifested as distinct increase in cholesterol content in liver tissue and kidney and a decrease in phospholipid content in liver, kidney and heart tissues. these changes were accompanied by an increase in content of sialic acids in liver ...1975766398

inhibition of cell wall synthesis by sulfonamides and trimethoprim.the hypothesis that defective cell wall synthesis seems to represent a final common pathway of drug-induced injury either within the bacterial cell or on its surface was supported by two different findings: (1) sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim, either alone or in combination, induced morphological findings in various escherichia coli and proteus mirabilis strains identical to those found after incubation with so-called cell-wall-active antibiotics (e.g., penicillin) and (2) cell-wall-defective ...1976767064
the linkage of lysine in the o-specific chains of proteus mirabilis 1959.lipopolysaccharides of qualitatively identical but quantitatively different sugar composition were extracted from proteus mirabilis strain 1959. the lipopolysaccharide with the higher percentage of typical o-specific constituents was subjected to partial acid hydrolysis. an oligosaccharide b22 was separated by paper chromatography and electrophoresis. it was found to be composed of equimolar amounts of d-galacturonic acid, d-galactosamine and l-lysine. dinitrophenylation of the oligosaccharide a ...1976767106
