3,4] However, there have been case reports of extrapulmonary spread of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in immunocompetent CF patients chronically infected with the mucoid
strain of this organism with bacteremia, endopthalmitis and pericarditis.
Various clinical pictures including mild-moderate conjunctival erythema, little, mucoid
or abundant, purulent discharge, ocular edema, conjunctival edema or pseudomembrane formation may be observed (7,8,18).
On the second day of ethanoic acid enemas, we visually observed bloody mucoid
stool with pus in these rats--symptoms similar to what would be expected with genuine UC.
conversion aiming to establish a protocol able to investigate and mapping [alg.
ARIKACE also demonstrated statistically significant reduction from baseline in Pseudomonas aeruginosa density, including mucoid
strains, which was sustained during the treatment and off-treatment periods of the six cycles.
Since many cavitational bacteria form biofilms, I did recommend azithromycin, touted to penetrate biofilms, the complex mucoid
and bacterial communities that protect chronic infections, especially in bony cavitations and dental plaque from immune surveillance.
aeruginosa isolated from patients with cystic fibrosis in particular will have a mucoid
appearance due to the production of alginate.
aeruginosa PAO1 and its isogenic mucoid
variant (PAOmucA22) was determined.
Eighty five percent of patients had complete relief in viscosity with sputum being watery, 10% having thick sputum and 5% patients having mucoid
sputum (Table 4).
Although garlic preparations exhibit a broad spectrum of antibacterial activity against Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, other bacterial strains such as the mucoid
strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Streptococcus [beta]-hemolyticus and Enterococcus faecium were resistant to allicin (Ankri and Mirelman, 1999).
Histopathologic examination revealed a paucicellular and hypovascular tumor consisting of basophilic interstitial mucoid
material containing sparse slender, oval, spindle, and stellate cells (Fig.
The test cell was then injected with a highly mucoid
strain of Pseudomonas fluorescens and fed a nutrient solution containing molasses as the carbon and energy source, and nitrate which served as both the nitrogen source and terminal electron acceptor.
