Turning the Tide against Antibiotic Resistance by Evaluating Novel, Halogenated Phenazine, Quinoline, and NH125 Compounds against spp. Clinical Isolates and Mycoplasma Type Strains.

Antimicrob Agents Chemother 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Infectious Diseases and Immunology, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida, USA

Escalating levels of antibiotic resistance in mycoplasmas, particularly macrolide resistance in and , have narrowed our antibiotic arsenal. Further, mycoplasmas lack a cell wall and do not synthesize folic acid, rendering common antibiotics such as beta-lactams, vancomycin, sulfonamides and trimethoprim of no value. To address this shortage, we screened nitroxoline, triclosan, and a library of 20 novel, halogenated phenazine, quinoline, and NH125 analogues against spp. Read More

Adverse pregnancy and neonatal outcomes associated with a systematic review and meta-analysis protocol.

BMJ Open 2018 Nov 28;8(11):e024175. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Public Health Interventions Research Group, Kirby Institute, University of New South Wales, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Introduction: Several bacterial sexually transmitted and genital mycoplasma infections during pregnancy have been associated with poor pregnancy and perinatal outcomes. Comprehensive and systematic information about associations between sexually transmitted infections (STI) and genital infections in pregnancy and adverse perinatal outcomes is needed to improve understanding about the evidence for causal associations between these infections and adverse pregnancy and neonatal outcomes. Our primary objective is to systematically review the literature about associations between: (1) in pregnancy and preterm birth; (2) in pregnancy and preterm birth; (3) and/or in pregnancy and preterm birth.

Evaluation of the Associations Between Cervical Microbiota and HPV Infection, Clearance, and Persistence in Cytologically Normal Women.

Cancer Prev Res (Phila) 2019 Jan 21;12(1):43-56. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

Department of Gynecological Oncology, Beijing Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital of Capital Medical University, Beijing, China.

The aim of this study was to investigate the associations between cervical microbiota and different human papillomavirus (HPV) infection statuses in cytologically normal women. The cervical microbiota of HPV-positive or -negative women with a normal cytologic diagnosis was characterized and compared using 16S rDNA-based high-throughput sequencing, and the differences in cervical microbiota associated with new acquisition, persistence, and clearances of HPV genotypes were analyzed via one-year follow-up. The results showed that the cervical microbial richness of HPV-positive women was lower than for HPV-negative women, and the difference was more significant in the postmenopausal group relative to the premenopausal group.

Clinical Chorioamnionitis at Term: New Insights into the Etiology, Microbiology, and the Fetal, Maternal and Amniotic Cavity Inflammatory Responses.

Nogyogyaszati Szuleszeti Tovabbkepzo Szemle 2018 Jun;20(3):103-112

Perinatology Research Branch, Division of Obstetrics and Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Division of Intramural Research, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, National Institutes of Health, U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, Bethesda, Maryland, and Detroit, Michigan, USA.

Clinical chorioamnionitis is the most common infection related diagnosis made in labor and delivery units worldwide. It is traditionally believed to be due to microbial invasion of the amniotic cavity, which elicits a maternal inflammatory response characterized by maternal fever, uterine tenderness, maternal tachycardia and leukocytosis. The condition is often associated with fetal tachycardia and a foul smelling amniotic fluid. Read More

Experimental models of hyperthyroid Graves' disease (GD) and Graves' orbitopathy (GO) are efficiently developed by genetic immunisation by electroporation with human thyrotropin hormone receptor (hTSHR) A-subunit plasmid in female BALB/c (H-2d) mice. We investigated susceptibility in C57BL/6 J (H-2b) animals to allow studies on disease mechanisms in transgenic and immune response gene knock-out mice. Higher numbers of female C57BL/6 J were positive for pathogenic thyroid stimulating antibodies, but induced hyperthyroidism remained at a low frequency compared to BALB/c animals. Read More

A novel mba-based Real time PCR approach for genotyping of Ureaplasma parvum validated in a cohort of Mongolian mothers and offspring.

Int J Med Microbiol 2018 Oct 6;308(7):865-871. Epub 2018 Aug 6.

Institute of Medical Microbiology and Hospital Hygiene, University Hospital, Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf, University Street, Düsseldorf, 40225, Germany. Electronic address:

The role of Ureaplasma parvum in abnormal outcomes of human pregnancy has been discussed controversially in the past. Of the 14 known ureaplasma serovars, the Ureaplasma parvum serovars 1, 3, 6 and 14, have been found to derive from smaller genomes. Serovars 3 and 6 have been described more often to cause complications in pregnancy. Read More

Ann Biol Clin (Paris) 2018 Aug;76(4):459-476

Laboratoire de microbiologie, Eurofins Labazur, Nice, France.

Preliminary evaluation of qualitative and semi-quantitative clinical laboratory measurements is a prerequisite for the accreditation of clinical laboratories, according to the French committee of accreditation guidelines following the European reference standard EN ISO 15189. Numerous papers have been published regarding biochemistry, hematology or immunology. However, data are still lacking for molecular biology. Read More

Investigation on silent bacterial infections in specimens from pregnant women affected by spontaneous miscarriage.

J Cell Physiol 2018 Jan 5;234(1):100-107. Epub 2018 Aug 5.

Department of Morphology, Surgery and Experimental Medicine, Section of Pathology, Oncology and Experimental Biology, University of Ferrara, Ferrara, Italy.

Miscarriage is one of the main complications occurring in pregnancy. The association between adverse pregnancy outcomes and silent bacterial infections has been poorly investigated. Ureaplasma parvum and urealiticum, Mycoplasma genitalium and hominis and Chlamydia trachomatis DNA sequences have been investigated by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods in chorionic villi tissues and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from females with spontaneous abortion (SA, n = 100) and females who underwent voluntary interruption of pregnancy (VI, n = 100).

The bacterial microbiota in first-void urine from men with and without idiopathic urethritis.

PLoS One 2018 27;13(7):e0201380. Epub 2018 Jul 27.

Department of Bacteriology, Parasitology and Mycology, Research Unit for Reproductive Tract Microbiology, Statens Serum Institut, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Background: Non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU) is a common syndrome in men. NGU may have several causes, but many cases are caused by sexually transmitted infections that may also cause complications in their female partners. Chlamydia trachomatis and Mycoplasma genitalium are the most common causes of NGU, but in up to 35% of the cases, none of the known viral or bacterial causes are found. Read More

Novel insights into neuroinflammation: bacterial lipopolysaccharide, tumor necrosis factor α, and Ureaplasma species differentially modulate atypical chemokine receptor 3 responses in human brain microvascular endothelial cells.

University Children's Hospital, University of Wuerzburg, Josef-Schneider-Str. 2, 97080, Wuerzburg, Germany.

Background: Atypical chemokine receptor 3 (ACKR3, synonym CXCR7) is increasingly considered relevant in neuroinflammatory conditions, in which its upregulation contributes to compromised endothelial barrier function and may ultimately allow inflammatory brain injury. While an impact of ACKR3 has been recognized in several neurological autoimmune diseases, neuroinflammation may also result from infectious agents, including Ureaplasma species (spp.). Read More
