Influence of Silver-hydroxyapatite Nanocomposite Coating on Biofilm Formation of Joint Prosthesis and Its Mechanism

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.179
Pages: 
506–13
Synopsis: 
The main reason for biomaterial-related refractory infections is biofilm formation caused by bacterial adhesion on the surface of materials. Silver-hydroxyapatite (Ag/HA) nanocomposite coating can inhibit the formation of biofilm, but its mechanism is not clear. In this study, we will determine the amount of biofilm on the Ag/HA composite coating, detect the sustained release rates of silver ions in simulated body fluid, the effects on the biofilm formation of bacteria and the expression of genes related to biofilm formation of S aureus.

ABSTRACT

Background: The main reason for biomaterial related refractory infections is biofilm formation caused by bacterial adhesion on the surface of materials. Silver-hydroxyapatite (Ag/HA) nanocomposite coating can inhibit the formation of biofilm, but its mechanism is not clear.

To Study the Correlation between Carrier Status of Nasal Staphylococcus aureus in Patients on Haemodialysis with Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B and Their Sociodemographic Features

Issue: 
Pages: 
139–44
Synopsis: 
In the present study, significant positivity was detected between methicillin sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) carrier status and hepatitis C virus (HCV) in patients on haemodialysis and who have lived together with ≤ 2 family members at home.


ABSTRACT

Aim: To study the correlation of nasal Staphylococcus aureus carrier status in patients on haemodialysis, infected by hepatitis C virus (HCV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and their sociodemographic features.

Nasal Carriage of Methicillin-resistant and Methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus in Nursing Home Residents in Bolu, Turkey

Issue: 
Pages: 
183–7
Synopsis: 
The rate of methicillin-resistant and methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus decreased in a nursing home population in Turkey after hand-washing education.

ABSTRACT

Background: This study aimed (a) to provide information on methicillin-resistant (MRSA) and methicillin-susceptible (MSSA) Staphylococcus aureus colonization ratio in residents of nursing homes; (b) to determine the effect of hand-washing education given to nursing home residents and employees on nasal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus (NCSA) and (c) to obtain probable risk factors for MRSA colonization of residents in two nursing homes.
