The article offers information on several science related article that appeared in the previous issues of various journals. The in vitro and in vivo methods state that the inhibition of salmonella typhimurium does not take place when the neutrophils induce the calprotectin in the bacterial infection of the gut. Information on the impact of discriminatory phagocytes on the pathogenic bacteria in the human intestine and the role of prometheus in curing chronic liver failure is also presented.

    The antagonistic effects of Lactobacillus against pathogenic bacteria were evaluated in vitro on cultured Caco-2 cells. Lactobacilli were added simultaneously with enteric pathogenic strains (enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli K88 or Salmonella typhimurium SARB21 and SL1344), before pathogenic...

    Capnocytophaga canimorsus, a commensal bacterium of the canine oral flora, has been repeatedly isolated since 1976 from severe human infections transmitted by dog bites. Here, we show that C. canimorsus exhibits robust growth when it is in direct contact with mammalian cells, including...

    We describe a case of a Salmonella typhimurium mediastinal abscess in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Patients with SLE are predisposed to nontyphoidal salmonella infection with a high incidence of bacteraemiaand abscess formation. Ourcase is the firstreport ofa mediastinal...
