Ulcerative colitis is a kind of inflammatory bowel disease that is considered as immunological response to commensal bacteria colonizing gut lumen. Adherent-invasive Escherichia coli strains are pathogens responsible for ulcerative colitis disease. These bacteria have special virulence factors, including type 1 fimbriae, which could be involved in ... read more

Cryptosporidiosis is a major public health problem for neonatal livestock worldwide. Cryptosporidium parvum infects intestinal epithelial cells via contaminated food or drinking water and leads to cryptosporidiosis. Most of the animal model studies on infectivity of C. parvumare conducted on the neonatal mice.The current study aimed at ... read more

Multidrug resistant (MDR) Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii and Stenotrophomonas maltophilia have a leading role in nosocomial infections, including lower respiratory tract (LRT) infections. When polymicrobial infection by these three bacteria occurs, colistin against MDR P. aeruginosa and A. baumannii and trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (SXT) against S. maltophilia can be ... read more

Enterococcus spp., a part of the normal flora of the human intestine, possess several virulence factors that can develop biofilms to endure harsh environments. Their ability to cause nosocomial infections makes them as critical opportunistic pathogens in hospital settings. The current study aimed at determining the occurrence ... read more

Bordetella bronchiseptica is an aerobic, Gram-negative pleomorphic coccobacillus. It can infect various mammals including cats, dogs, and pigs. Bordetella bronchiseptica rarely infect humans. Infants, immunosuppressed and HIV infected persons, and patients with comorbidities constitute the risk group for B. bronchiseptica infections. Bordetella bronchiseptica may lead to disseminated ... read more
