Presentation

  • Geo Schema Political Region Geo Region New Zealand Environmental Context Wild Occurrence Present Origin Indigenous Deprecated Name Ids 'd0a4a405-f04c-478c-b200-025595773688' was deprecated on 14-Sep-2018 '5a7b0849-0834-4ef9-8b44-48877c728126' was deprecated[nzor.org.nz]
  • RESULTS: Results are presented as mean log10 colony-forming units (cfu)/mL SEM at 48 hours.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In the present case, as well, the patient’s long-term history of hemodialysis is considered to have been a risk factor.[bmcinfectdis.biomedcentral.com]
  • Two strains presented a profile toward a mild inflammatory Th1 response considering TNF-a/IL-10 and IL-1β/IL-10 cytokines ratios. The third strain EP1, presented an anti-inflammatory potential and was selected for in vivo studies.[ri.conicet.gov.ar]
  • Variably sized foci of malacia were present within the parenchyma of the brain stem (cerebral peduncle, optic lobe, and medulla oblongata) and the cerebral hemisphere.[bioone.org]
Wound Infection
  • Infection by Enterococcus durans (E. durans) is very rare; reported cases are often preceded by therapy or an immunosuppressed state, including infective endocarditis, urinary tract infection, or wound infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Weight Gain
  • (A) Body weight gain of treated (EP1) and control mice. (B) Colon length at the end of the experimental protocol, results expressed as mean SD.[doi.org]
Inflammation
  • We will continue the study of this strain in a mice model of inflammation in our laboratory.[doi.org]
Veterinarian
  • Etymology: N.L. gen. masc. n. lemanii, of Leman, named after the late American veterinarian Allen D. Leman for his contributions toward swine disease and swine production. Source: Environmental. Valid publication: Validation List no. 152.[bacterio.net]
Ulcer
  • Finally, the histological evaluation of ileum and colon sections of EP1 group did not show any signs of inflammation, such as edema, erosion/ulceration, crypt loss, or infiltration of mono- and polymorphonuclear cells (data not shown).[doi.org]
Apathy
  • Abstract In a colony of severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) mice conspicuously altered behavioural characteristics were observed: hunched position, apathy, dullness, short breath, bristled fur, emaciation, circling movements around their longitudinal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Agitation
  • These bacteria were grown using M17 broth (DIFCO, Detroit, MI, USA) in agitation at 37 C for 24 h. Table 1. Enterococcus strains used in the study, origin, and presence of virulence genes.[doi.org]
Lethargy
  • EP1 group did not show any signs of pain, lethargy, dehydration, or diarrhea during treatment.[doi.org]

Colitis
  • RESULTS: The disease activity index and histological colitis score were significantly lower in the DSS plus TN-3 group than in the DSS group.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In this study, we investigated the effects of Enterococcus (E.) durans TN-3 on the development of dextran sulfate sodium (DSS) colitis. METHODS BALB/c mice were fed with 4.0% DSS in normal chow.[semanticscholar.org]

  • The antilisterial activity was lost after treatment with pepsin, trypsin, pronase, proteinase K and alpha-chymotrypsin suggesting the active component was a protein or peptide.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This was most common in pregnant and lactating animals and also observed in 4 mice after experimental treatment. Pseudomonas aeruginosa, serotype P1 and Enterococcus durans, serotype D were isolated from various organs and from the middle ear.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Enterococcus durans EP1 Administration Increases sIgA in Feces Total sIgA concentration was increased in mice stools after treatment with EP1. SIgA increases progressively throughout the treatment (Figure 3 A).[doi.org]
  • Production Details Tryptic soy broth at 37 C for 16 hours Notes E. durans 152 is very effective at controlling L. monocytogenes in biofilms and persists (confirmed by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis) for as long as 8 weeks after the CE treatment.[ximbio.com]

Prevention

  • Many strains of enterococci are also known to produce antimicrobial peptides, enterocins, which may prevent the growth of certain food-born pathogens.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
