d-Serine Degradation by Proteus mirabilis Contributes to Fitness during Single-Species and Polymicrobial Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection.

mSphere 2019 02 27;4(1). Epub 2019 Feb 27.

Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo, New York, USA

is a common cause of catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) and secondary bacteremia, which are frequently polymicrobial. We previously utilized transposon insertion-site sequencing (Tn-Seq) to identify novel fitness factors for colonization of the catheterized urinary tract during single-species and polymicrobial infection, revealing numerous metabolic pathways that may contribute to fitness regardless of the presence of other cocolonizing organisms. One such "core" fitness factor was d-serine utilization. Read More

In vitro activity of apramycin against multidrug-, carbapenem- and aminoglycoside-resistant Enterobacteriaceae and Acinetobacter baumannii.

J Antimicrob Chemother 2019 Apr;74(4):944-952

Institute of Medical Microbiology, University of Zürich, Gloriastrasse 30, Zürich, Switzerland.

Objectives: Widespread antimicrobial resistance often limits the availability of therapeutic options to only a few last-resort drugs that are themselves challenged by emerging resistance and adverse side effects. Apramycin, an aminoglycoside antibiotic, has a unique chemical structure that evades almost all resistance mechanisms including the RNA methyltransferases frequently encountered in carbapenemase-producing clinical isolates. This study evaluates the in vitro activity of apramycin against multidrug-, carbapenem- and aminoglycoside-resistant Enterobacteriaceae and Acinetobacter baumannii, and provides a rationale for its superior antibacterial activity in the presence of aminoglycoside resistance determinants.

In Schizophrenia, Increased Plasma IgM/IgA Responses to Gut Commensal Bacteria Are Associated with Negative Symptoms, Neurocognitive Impairments, and the Deficit Phenotype.

Neurotox Res 2019 Apr 15;35(3):684-698. Epub 2018 Dec 15.

Department of Psychiatry, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Increased gut permeability (leaky gut) with increased translocation of Gram-negative bacteria plays a role in the gut-brain axis through effects on systemic immune-inflammatory processes. Deficit schizophrenia is characterized by an immune-inflammatory response combined with a deficit in natural IgM antibodies to oxidative-specific epitopes (OSEs), which are a first-line defense against bacterial infections. This study measured plasma IgA/IgM responses to 5 Gram-negative bacteria in association with IgM responses to malondialdehyde (MDA) and azelaic acid in 80 schizophrenia patients (40 with the deficit syndrome and 40 without) and in 38 healthy controls.

Emergence of plasmid-mediated colistin resistance (mcr-1) among Enterobacteriaceae strains: Laboratory detection of resistance and measures to control its dissemination.

Med Mal Infect 2018 Jun 21;48(4):250-255. Epub 2018 Feb 21.

Commission spécialisée sécurité patient, haut conseil de la santé publique, 75014 Paris, France; Service gestion du risque infectieux, des vigilances et infectiologie, CHRU de Lille, 59000 Lille, France.

The increasing use of colistin has contributed to the emergence of resistant bacteria and to an increase in the frequency of infections caused by naturally resistant Enterobacteriaceae strains such as Proteus, Providencia, Morganella, and Serratia. In August 2016, the French High Council for Public Health (French acronym HCSP) received a request from the Ministry of Health on the advice of the French National Public Health agency (Santé publique France) with regard to measures that should be taken to tackle the emergence of plasmid-mediated colistin resistance among Enterobacteriaceae strains. French healthcare facilities were asked to take the necessary measures as soon as possible, such as updating the definition of emerging highly resistant bacteria and defining the identification methods so as to take account of the evolving epidemiology of this type of resistance.
