Staphylococcus aureus Colonization: Modulation of Host Immune Response and Impact on Human Vaccine Design.

In apparent contrast to its invasive potential Staphylococcus aureus colonizes the anterior nares of 20-80% of the human population. The relationship ...

Impact of Staphylococcus aureus USA300 Colonization and Skin Infections on Systemic Immune Responses in Humans.
Staphylococcus aureus is both a commensal and a pathogen, and USA300, a strain that is usually methicillin-resistant but can sometimes be methicillin-susceptible, has been causing skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) in epidemic proportions among

Host Response to Staphylococcus epidermidis Colonization and Infections.
The majority of research in the Staphylococcus field has been dedicated to the understanding of Staphylococcus aureus infections. In contrast, there is limited information on infections by coagulase-negative Staphylococci (CoNS) and how the host resp

Comparative Exoproteomics and Host Inflammatory Response in Staphylococcus aureus Skin and Soft Tissue Infections, Bacteremia, and Subclinical Colonization.
The exoproteome of Staphylococcus aureus contains enzymes and virulence factors that are important for host adaptation. We investigated the exoprotein profiles and cytokine/chemokine responses obtained in three different S. aureus-host interaction sc

Impact of host genetic polymorphisms on vaccine induced antibody response.
Many host- and vaccine-specific factors modulate an antibody response. Host genetic polymorphisms, in particular, modulate the immune response in multiple ways on different scales. This review article describes how information on host genetic polymor

Live attenuated influenza vaccine enhances colonization of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus in mice.
Community interactions at mucosal surfaces between viruses, like influenza virus, and respiratory bacterial pathogens are important contributors toward pathogenesis of bacterial disease. What has not been considered is the natural extension of these

Triclosan promotes Staphylococcus aureus nasal colonization.
The biocide triclosan is used in many personal care products, including toothpastes, soaps, clothing, and medical equipment. Consequently, it is present as a contaminant in the environment and has been detected in some human fluids, including serum,

Immune modulation by helminth parasites of ruminants: implications for vaccine development and host immune competence.
Parasitic helminths reside in immunologically-exposed extracellular locations within their hosts, yet they are capable of surviving for extended periods. To enable this survival, these parasites have developed complex and multifaceted mechanisms to s

Impact of Host Heterogeneity on the Efficacy of Interventions to Reduce Staphylococcus aureus Carriage.
Staphylococcus aureus is a common cause of bacterial infections worldwide. It is most commonly carried in and transmitted from the anterior nares. Hosts are known to vary in their proclivity for S. aureus nasal carriage and may be divided into persis
