Escherichia coli is one of the most common causes of different infections. Biofilm structure allows the strains to persist on the biotic and abiotic surfaces for a long time and impairs eradication. Surface colonization of E. coli could be done with several extracellular appendages, which are effective ... read more

Multidrug resistant (MDR) Acinetobacter baumanii strains have emerged as novel nosocomial pathogens threatening patients’ lives, especially in intensive-care units (ICU). Various types of extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs) are involved in conferring resistance to β-lactam antibiotics, making their genotypic characterization an essential prerequisite to take proper preventative measures.The aim ... read more

Blastocystis is one of the most common anaerobic protozoa found in the intestinal tract of humans and various animals, with a worldwide distribution. The parasite has been linked to the pathogenesis of the irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), previously.The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence ... read more

Oral diseases depend on the relationship between host and various species of a bacterial community. The propagation of pathogenic bacteria within the mouth can cause periodontitis.In this study, bacterial classifications were performed based on next-generation sequencing (NGS) of 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) in order to identify potential ... read more

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has become a great concern to public health as it is one of the most successful and adaptable human pathogens. Antibiotic is still the main treatment for infected patients. Therefore, identifying the prevalence of antibiotic resistant genes is essential to reduce the mortality ... read more

The incidence of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) has markedly increased over the past decade. Although its epidemiology has been previously investigated in tertiary hospitals, no studies have investigated the prevalence of CDI in county level hospitals in China.This study aimed at describing the molecular characteristics of ... read more

Streptococcus pneumoniae is a causative agent of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Diagnosis of pneumococcal infection includes conventional culture-based and molecular methods. Differentiation of S. pneumoniae from other mitis group streptococci is not reliable.We aimed to evaluate the efficacy of lytB gene along with lytA gene for detection ... read more

Staphylococcus aureus is an opportunistic pathogen that produces many virulence factors, and the most important regulator system of virulence factors expression in these bacteria is the agr system. Expression of virulence factors is not the same under in vitro conditions in standard laboratory medium and in vivo ... read more
