Responses of Pseudomonas aeruginosa to antimicrobials.

Infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa often are hard to treat; inappropriate chemotherapy readily selects multidrug-resistant P. aeruginosa. Thi...

Iron Depletion Enhances Production of Antimicrobials by Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a heritable disease characterized by chronic, polymicrobial lung infections. While Staphylococcus aureus is the dominant lung pathogen in young CF patients, Pseudomonas aeruginosa becomes predominant by adulthood. P. aeruginos

Mechanism of fibroblast inflammatory responses to Pseudomonas aeruginosa elastase.
Receptor tyrosine kinases, including the epidermal growth factor receptors (EGFR), are able to activate the mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) via several adaptor proteins and protein kinases such as Raf. EGFR can be activated by a variety of e

Annona glabra Flavonoids Act As Antimicrobials by Binding to Pseudomonas aeruginosa Cell Walls.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an important pathogen in opportunistic infections in humans. The increased incidence of antimicrobial-resistant P. aeruginosa isolates has highlighted the need for novel and more potent therapies against this microorganism.

Skin-Derived C-Terminal Filaggrin-2 Fragments Are Pseudomonas aeruginosa-Directed Antimicrobials Targeting Bacterial Replication.
Soil- and waterborne bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa are constantly challenging body surfaces. Since infections of healthy skin are unexpectedly rare, we hypothesized that the outermost epidermis, the stratum corneum, and sweat glands directl

D-amino acids enhance the activity of antimicrobials against biofilms of clinical wound isolates of Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Within wounds, microorganisms predominantly exist as biofilms. Biofilms are associated with chronic infections and represent a tremendous clinical challenge. As antibiotics are often ineffective against biofilms, use of dispersal agents as adjunctive

Tazobactam and Other Parenteral Antimicrobials Against Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa From US Hospitals.
Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa are frequently isolated pathogens in the hospital setting, and antimicrobial resistance among these organisms is on the rise. In an attempt to meet the challenge of gram-negative res

Recurrent pseudomonas aeruginosa endophthalmitis.
To report a case of recurrent endophthalmitis resulting from Pseudomonas aeruginosa requiring removal of the intraocular lens and lens capsule to eradicate the infection.

Expression of microRNA-93 and Interleukin-8 during Pseudomonas aeruginosa-mediated induction of proinflammatory responses.
In this study we analyzed the microRNA profile of cystic fibrosis (CF) bronchial epithelial IB3-1 cells infected with Pseudomonas aeruginosa by microarray and quantitative RT-PCR, demonstrating that microRNA 93 (miR-93), which is highly expressed in

Research of the heteroresistance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa to imipenem.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) plays plays an important role in nosocomial infection. To explore the heteroresistance of PA to imipenem (IMP), we detected the sensitivity of 140 strains of PA to IMP using the KB method and VITEK method. Combined with re

Proteomic Response of Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 Adhering to Solid Surfaces.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a pathogenic micro-organism responsible for many hospital-acquired infections. It is able to adhere to solid surfaces and develop an immobilized community or so-called biofilm. Many studies have been focusing on the use of s
