Medically managed prosthetic valve endocarditis caused by .

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Jun 23;14(6). Epub 2021 Jun 23.

Infectious Diseases, Northern Care Alliance NHS Group, Manchester, UK.

Infective endocarditis is associated with morbidity and mortality even when appropriately treated. It can be more complicated to treat when prosthetic material is present, often necessitating surgical revision as well as antimicrobial therapy. Endocarditis caused by gram-negative bacilli is a rare occurrence, with some literature and expert opinion suggesting superior outcomes with combined surgery and antibiotics when a prosthetic valve is involved.

Sef fimbria operon construction, expression, and function for direct rapid detection of Salmonella Enteritidis.

Appl Microbiol Biotechnol 2021 Jun 22. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

College of Veterinary Medicine, Yangzhou University, 12 East Wenhui Road, Yangzhou, 225009, China.

Salmonella Enteritidis (SE) causes both horizontal and vertical transmission of diseases in poultry industry and is also one of the main causes of human food poisoning. Sequence analysis of the sef operon of poultry-derived Salmonella serotypes showed the presence of an entire sef operon in SE, whereas only sef pseudogenes were found in Salmonella Gallinarum and Salmonella Pullorum. Subsequently, the sef operon of SE was cloned into the pBR322 plasmid and expressed in a modified Escherichia coli strain SE5000. Read More

Inhibitory Concentrations of Ciprofloxacin Induce an Adaptive Response Promoting the Intracellular Survival of Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium.

mBio 2021 Jun 22:e0109321. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Department of Medicine, University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine, Cambridge, United Kingdom.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a pressing global health crisis, which has been fueled by the sustained use of certain classes of antimicrobials, including fluoroquinolones. While the genetic mutations responsible for decreased fluoroquinolone (ciprofloxacin) susceptibility are known, the implications of ciprofloxacin exposure on bacterial growth, survival, and interactions with host cells are not well described. Aiming to understand the influence of inhibitory concentrations of ciprofloxacin we subjected three clinical isolates of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium to differing concentrations of ciprofloxacin, dependent on their MICs, and assessed the impact on bacterial growth, morphology, and transcription.

De novo design of a pH-triggered self-assembled β-hairpin nanopeptide with the dual biological functions for antibacterial and entrapment.

J Nanobiotechnology 2021 Jun 14;19(1):183. Epub 2021 Jun 14.

Laboratory of Molecular Nutrition and Immunity, The Institute of Animal Nutrition, Northeast Agricultural University, Harbin, People's Republic of China.

Background: Acid-tolerant enteric pathogens can evade small intestinal acid barriers, colonize and infect the intestinal tract. However, broad-spectrum antibiotics are not the best therapeutic strategy because of the disruption of intestinal flora caused by its indiscriminate antimicrobial activity against beneficial and harmful bacteria. So that is what inspired us to combine pH regulation with nanotechnology to develop a pH-triggered site-targeted antimicrobial peptide with entrapping function. Read More

Oral Mutant as a Carrier for a -Based Vaccine for Prevention and Reversal of Type 1 Diabetes.

Front Immunol 2021 24;12:667897. Epub 2021 May 24.

Department of Translational Research & Cellular Therapeutics, Arthur Riggs Diabetes & Metabolism Research Institute, Beckman Research Institute, City of Hope National Medical Center, Duarte, CA, United States.

A therapy that includes an oral vaccine for type 1 diabetes (T1D) using live attenuated MvP728 (ΔΔ), cytokines (IL10 and TGFβ) and preproinsulin (PPI) antigen in combination with a sub-therapeutic dose of anti-CD3 mAb was developed by our team. The vaccine combination therapy reduced insulitis and prevented and reversed diabetes in non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice. Here, we show the effectiveness of an alternative mutant (Δ) as a carrier strain, which is anticipated to have lower risks of an inflammatory response and septicemia as a result of modification in the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) detoxification of lipid A.

Regulation of Th1 T Cell Differentiation by Iron Upregulation of T Cell Immunoglobulin and Mucin Containing Protein-3 (TIM-3).

Front Immunol 2021 24;12:637809. Epub 2021 May 24.

Department of Internal Medicine II, Medical University of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria.

Iron plays an important role in host-pathogen interactions, in being an essential element for both pathogen and host metabolism, but also by impacting immune cell differentiation and anti-microbial effector pathways. Iron has been implicated to affect the differentiation of T lymphocytes during inflammation, however, so far the underlying mechanism remained elusive. In order to study the role of iron in T cell differentiation we here investigated how dietary iron supplementation affects T cell function and outcome in a model of chronic infection with the intracellular bacterium ().
