Dialdehyde Nanocrystalline Cellulose as Antibiotic Substitutes against Multidrug-Resistant Bacteria

Antibiotic abuse resulted in the emergence of multidrug-resistant Gram-positive pathogens, which pose a severe threat to public health. It is urgent to develop antibiotic substitutes to kill multidrug-resistant Gram-positive pathogens effectively. Herein, the antibacterial dialdehyde nanocrystalline cellulose (DNC) was prepared and characterized. The antibacterial activity and biosafety of DNC were studied. With the increasing content of aldehyde groups, DNC exhibited high antibacterial activity…

Explanation of the Formation of Complexes between Representatives of Oxazolidinones and HDAS-β-CD Using Molecular Modeling as a Complementary Technique to cEKC and NMR

Molecular modeling (MM) results for tedizolid and radezolid with heptakis-(2,3-diacetyl-6-sulfo)-β-cyclodextrin (HDAS-β-CD) are presented and compared with the results previously obtained for linezolid and sutezolid. The mechanism of interaction of chiral oxazolidinone ligands belonging to a new class of antibacterial agents, such as linezolid, tedizolid, radezolid, and sutezolid, with HDAS-β-CD based on capillary electrokinetic chromatography (cEKC), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)…

Hospitalization and colonization by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in the surgical department of 03 health facilities in the Nde division, West-Cameroon

CONCLUSION: The high rates of antibiotic resistance of bacteria isolated at discharge compared to those isolated at admission obtained in the present investigation, highlights the important role that hospitalization plays in the selection and dissemination of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and colonization by these bacteria in health structures of Ndé division. As a result, further investigations to find the factors that promote this phenomenon should be carried out.
