Staphylococcus aureus is considered the most common opportunistic pathogen in humans, capable of forming biofilm, increasing the chances of antibiotic resistance and causes several chronic diseases. Biodiversity is a source of inspiration in the search for new agents against these microorganisms. Hitherto, the efficacy of Hypericum sp. extracts as an antibacterial agent has already been demonstrated against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. In this study, we observed that until 4 µg/mL, ...

Hospitalizations related to Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) are frequent, increasing mortality and health costs. In this way, this study aimed to compare the genotypic and phenotypic characteristics of MRSA isolates that colonize and infect patients seen at two hospitals in the city of Niteroi-Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A total of 147 samples collected between March 2013 and December 2015 were phenotyped and genotyped to identify the protein A (SPA) gene, the mec staphylococcal c...

Following the appearance of several antimicrobial agents to control the spread of infections, two major challenges have emerged: 1- the occurrence and blowout of multiresistant bacteria and the increase of chronic diseases, and 2- difficult-to-eradicate infections. In this study, we tested five benzoylthiourea derivatives for their ability to inhibit and stop bacterial growth and evaluated the possible influence of 1,2,4-triazolyl-benzoylthiourea derivative 4 on the formation and eradication of ...
BACKGROUND Resistance to antimicrobial agents is a major public health problem, being Staphylococcus aureus prevalent in infections in hospital and community environments and, admittedly, related to biofilm formation in biotic and abiotic surfaces. Biofilms form a complex and structured community of microorganisms surrounded by an extracellular matrix adhered to each other and to a surface that gives them even more protection and resistance to the action of antimicrobial agents, as well as again...

CC398 is a livestock-associated Staphylococcus aureus. However, it has also been isolated from humans with no previous contact with livestock. A surveillance of methicillin-resistant S. aureus colonisation among children attending public day care centres and hospitals in Niteroi and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, between 2011 and 2013, resulted in the isolation of six cases of CC398 from individuals with no previous exposure to livestock. These isolates showed a high frequency of the erm(C) gene (4/6, ...

INTRODUCTION: Obesity has become a major problem in most developed countries. Infertility ranks high among the issues brought by excessive weight gain, particularly as it may affect male sexual function. This study investigated a population of Brazilian infertile men in an attempt to establish a relationship between obesity and infertility. METHODS: A total of 153 infertile men had their anthropometric data collected and were divided into groups according to their body mass index and waist circu...
