PURPOSE: Staphylococcus aureus is the predominant pathogen that causes keratitis, and the rate of occurrence of drug-resistant S. aureus is increasing. However, little is known about its clinical epidemiology in Japan. This study was designed to characterize the genotypes of methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA) and methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) isolates from keratitis and healthy conjunctival sacs. METHODS: Thirty keratitis isolates (19 MSSA and 11 MRSA) and 18 healthy conjunctival ...

Background Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is an important public health issue. The study aimed to characterize the patient demographics, clinical features, antibiotic susceptibility, and clinical outcomes of keratitis caused by S. aureus, and to make a comparison between MRSA and methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA) isolates. Methodology/Principal findings Patients (n = 59) with culture-proven S. aureus keratitis treated in Chang Gung Memorial Hospital between Jan...

Abstract While infections with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) were traditionally restricted to the hospital setting, novel MRSA strains emerged over the last two decades that have the capacity to infect otherwise healthy people outside of the hospital setting. These community-associated (CA-)MRSA strains combine methicillin resistance with enhanced virulence and fitness. Interestingly, CA-MRSA strains emerged globally and from different backgrounds, indicating that the “trade...

Purpose. Community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus strains expressing Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL) are associated with severe skin and soft tissue infections, necrotizing pneumonia, and eye infections. We determined PVL's toxicity on infected mouse and cultured human corneal epithelial cells and the role of PVL and antibody to PVL in pathogenesis of murine keratitis.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is one of the most critical causes of healthcare-related or community-related infections. Resistance to most β-lactam antibiotics makes MRSA a big threat to clinical treatment. Utilization of low efficiency antibiotics such as vancomycin and teicoplanin makes new choices for therapies. Recently, much researchhas shed light on relevance between genetic mutations of MRSA and clinical characteristics such as antibiotic resistance, and virulence. Th...

Since the discovery of the first strain in 1961 in England, MRSA, the most notorious multidrug-resistant hospital pathogen, has spread all over the world. MRSA repeatedly turned down the challenges by number of chemotherapeutics, the fruits of modern organic chemistry. Now, we are in short of effective therapeutic agents against MRSA prevailing among immuno-compromised patients in the hospital. On top of this, we recently became aware of the rise of diverse clones of MRSA, some of which have inc...

Abstract Around the world, Staphylococcus aureus remains a dominant cause of bacteraemia. Whilst meticillin resistance remains the major phenotype of concern, various levels of reduced glycopeptide susceptibility are emerging with increasing frequency. The most common MRSA phenotypes now have raised vancomycin MICs within the susceptible range (MICs of 1–2 mg/L). This phenomenon, known as MIC creep, is hotly contested and often denied. Key to detecting MIC creep may be to examine isolates fresh,...

Anti-methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) drugs are critical final options for treating MRSA infection. This study investigated the percentage of all S. aureus isolates that are resistant to methicillin and also MRSA susceptibility to other antimicrobial agents in the JR Sapporo Hospital inpatient service. The inpatient service MRSA percentages for Japan, Hokkaido, and JR Sapporo Hospital from 2010-2019 were compared, exploring the annual rate of change in the MRSA percentage. We a...

The variety and complexity of ocular infections have increased significantly in the last decade since the publication of Cumitech 13B, Laboratory Diagnosis of Ocular Infections (L. D. Gray, P. H. Gilligan, and W. C. Fowler, Cumitech 13B, Laboratory Diagnosis of Ocular Infections, 2010). The purpose of this practical guidance document is to review, for individuals working in clinical microbiology laboratories, current tools used in the laboratory diagnosis of ocular infections.

Background: Besifloxacin ophthalmic suspension 0.6% (w/v%) contains benzalkonium chloride (BAK) as a preservative. We evaluated the in vitro time-kill activity of besifloxacin, alone and in combination with BAK, against common bacteria implicated in ophthalmic infections. Methods: The activity of besifloxacin (100 µg/mL), BAK (10, 15, 20, and 100 µg/mL), and combinations of besifloxacin and BAK were evaluated against isolates of Staphylococcus epidermidis (n = 4), Staphylococcus aureus (n = 3), ...

Abstract The formulation of nanoparticles with intrinsically therapeutic properties in a tailorable and appropriate manner is critical in nanomedicine for effective treatments of infectious diseases. Here, we present a biomedical strategy to formulate silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) as intrinsically therapeutic agents for the treatment of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) keratitis. Specifically, AgNPs are controllably obtained as spheres, wrapped with a biopolymer, and varied in sizes. in vitro an...

A standardized regimen for addressing the adverse effects of bacterial keratitis on vision remains an intractable challenge due to poor epithelial penetration and a short corneal retention time. In this study, a new strategy is proposed to implement the direct transport of antibiotics to bacteria-infected corneas via topical administration of an epithelium-penetrable biodriven nanoplatform, thereby enabling the efficacious treatment of bacterial keratitis. The nanoplatforms were composed of amph...

Ocular infection induced by bacteria and fungi is a major cause of visual impairment and blindness. Topical administration of antibiotics remains the first-line treatment, as effective eradication of pathogens is the core of the anti-infection strategy. Whereas, eye drops lack efficiency and have relatively low bioavailability. Intraocular injection may cause concurrent ocular damage and secondary infection. In addition, antibiotic-based management can be limited by the low sensitivity to multid...

The regulatory role of toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) in the inactivate staphylococcus epidermidis (ISE)-induced cornea inflammation is not well investigated. Here, TLR4 silence could decrease inflammatory cytokines in corneal epithelial cells treated with ISE. The mouse corneal epithelial cells were exposed to ISE for 24 h, either alone or with the NF-κB inhibitor, TLR4 lentivirus to bilaterally (knock-down or and overexpression). The expression of TLR4 in mouse corneal epithelial cells was invest...

Isolation of antimicrobial-resistant microbes from ocular infections may be becoming more frequent. Infections caused by these microbes can be difficult to treat and lead to poor outcomes. However, new therapies are being developed which may help improve clinical outcomes. This review examines recent reports on the isolation of antibiotic-resistant microbes from ocular infections. In addition, an overview of the development of some new antibiotic therapies is given. The recent literature regardi...
