In Vitro Activity of Sodium-Benzoate against Isolates of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus

Issue: 
Pages: 
107–9
Synopsis: 
In this study, the aim was to determine the in vitro activity of sodium benzoate against methicillinresistant staphylococcus aureus and methicillin-sensitive staphylococcus aureus clinical isolates. The minimum inhibitory concentration at which all of the methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus and methicillin-sensitive staphylococcus aureus strains were inhibited was 32 μg/ml and higher concentrations.

ABSTRACT

Background: Worldwide, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) rates have increased dramatically during the last decades. Sodium benzoate (SB) is a chemical substance that is used for preparing food and drinks and in the treatment of some metabolic (urea cycle disorders and hepatic coma) diseases. No studies were found which focussed on the effects of SB in MRSA infections. The aim was to determine in vitro activity of sodium benzoate against MRSA clinical isolates.

The Oral Contraceptive Pill Effectively Permits Cycle Batching for an Intermittent In Vitro Fertilization Programme in Trinidad and Tobago

Issue: 
Pages: 
127–29
Synopsis: 
The use of the oral contraceptive pill (OCP) to batch 74 women’s cycles in an intermittent in vitro fertilization (IVF) programme was compared with 121 cycles without the OCP. The method was effective, simple and cheap and is therefore recommended for other small IVF centres which perform intermittent, batched treatment.

An In Vitro Comparison of Implant Materials Cell Attachment, Cytokine and Osteocalcin Production, Implant Materials

Issue: 
Pages: 
250–6
Synopsis: 
Quantities of biochemical signals interleukin-1α (IL-1α), IL-6, IL-8, IL-11, macrophage colony stimulating factor and osteocalcin produced by osteosarcoma cell line MG 63 are different in the presence of titanium (Ti), titanium alloy (Ti6A14V) and stainless steel implant materials.
