AIM As options to treat recalcitrant bacterial infections are increasingly limited due to multidrug-resistant strains, searching for new, effective antibacterial compounds is necessary. One strategy is to generate treatment alternatives by drug repurposing. METHODS AND RESULTS In this work, phenotypic microarrays were used for the screening of miscellaneous compounds against the growth and biofilm formation of Acinetobacter baumannii, an important emergent multidrug-resistant opportunistic patho...

BACKGROUND Much remains unknown about the transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Pregnant women are considered part of the risk population, and vertical transmission of other coronaviruses has been suggested; however, this type of transmission in SARS-CoV-2 is believed to be unlikely. CASE REPORT A newborn delivered in term via cesarean section to an asymptomatic but COVID-19-positive 35-year-old woman started with respiratory distress in the first 30 min of life. A chest radiograph revealed pneu...

Aim This report presents phenotypic and genetic data on the prevalence and characteristics of extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs) and representative carbapenemases-producing Gram-negative species in Mexico. Material and methods A total of 52 centers participated, 43 hospital-based laboratories and 9 external laboratories. The distribution of antimicrobial resistance data for Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter cloacae complex, Acinetobacter baumannii complex, and Pseudomonas...

We aimed to evaluate the characteristics and colonization by pathogenic microorganisms of the ocular surface in patients in a burn center and to determine their association with sedation, mechanical ventilation, and periocular burn. We prospectively evaluated 40 patients during an eight-month period. Five evaluations where performed, at baseline and weekly on four more occasions or until hospital discharge or death. On each visit, we assessed periocular burn, lid position, Bell's phenomenon, Sch...

Sepsis is a life-threatening organ dysfunction condition caused by a dysregulated response to an infection that is common among patients with moderate to severe burn injury. Previously, genomic variants in Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4), a key innate immunity receptor, have been associated with sepsis and infection susceptibility. In this study, the association of six TLR4 SNPs with sepsis after burn injury was tested in the Mexican mestizo population. We found that the rs2737190 polymorphism is as...

The study of intestinal microbiota in vector insects like triatomines is paramount in parasitology because many parasitic species inhabit the vector's gut. Although knowledge on the gut microbiota in various vectors of the parasitic flagellate Trypanosoma cruzi has grown, research efforts have focused on South American triatomines. This study reports the isolation of bacterial microbiota in the anterior and posterior gut of Meccus pallidipennis (a triatomine species endemic to Mexico) by culture...

ABSTRACT Background Mexico is one of the countries with the highest number of deaths from the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the number of confirmed cases and RT-PCR tests per million population are lower than for other countries, which leads to uncertainty about the actual extent of the pandemic. In Mexico City, health care workers represent an important fraction of individuals with SARS-CoV-2 infection. This work aims to estimate the frequency of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in health care workers at...

Background: Serratia marcescens is an enteric bacterium with increasing incidence in clinical settings, attributed mainly to the opportune expression of diverse virulence determinants plus a wide intrinsic and acquired antibiotic resistance. Methods: The aim of this study was to compare the virulence factor profiles of 185 Serratia marcescens isolates from different clinical origins. In vitro proteolytic and hemolytic activities, biofilm formation, and motility were assessed in each strain. Addi...
