Molecular typing, virulence traits and antimicrobial resistance of diabetic foot staphylococci

Carla Mottola, Teresa Semedo-Lemsaddek, João J. Mendes, José Melo-Cristino, Luís Tavares, Patrícia Cavaco-Silva, Manuela Oliveira
2016 Journal of Biomedical Science  
Diabetes mellitus is a major chronic disease that continues to increase significantly. One of the most important and costly complications of diabetes are foot infections that may be colonized by pathogenic and antimicrobial resistant bacteria, harboring several virulence factors, that could impair its successful treatment. Staphylococcus aureus is one of the most prevalent isolate in diabetic foot infections, together with aerobes and anaerobes. Methods: In this study, conducted in the Lisbon
more » ... ea, staphylococci isolated (n = 53) from diabetic foot ulcers were identified, genotyped and screened for virulence and antimicrobial resistance traits. Genetic relationship amongst isolates was evaluated by pulsed-field-gel-electrophoresis with further multilocus sequence typing of the identified pulsotypes. PCR was applied for detection of 12 virulence genes and e-test technique was performed to determine minimal inhibitory concentration of ten antibiotics. Results: Among the 53 isolates included in this study, 41 Staphylococcus aureus were identified. Staphylococcal isolates were positive for intercellular adhesins icaA and icaD, negative for biofilm associated protein bap and pantone-valentine leucocidin pvl. S. aureus quorum sensing genes agrI and agrII were identified and only one isolate was positive for toxic shock syndrome toxin tst. 36 % of staphylococci tested were multiresistant and higher rates of resistance were obtained for ciprofloxacin and erythromycin. Clonality analysis revealed high genomic diversity and numerous S. aureus sequence types, both community-and hospital-acquired, belonging mostly to clonal complexes CC5 and C22, widely diffused in Portugal nowadays. Conclusions: This study shows that diabetic foot ulcer staphylococci are genomically diverse, present resistance to medically important antibiotics and harbour virulence determinants. These properties suggest staphylococci can contribute to persistence and severity of these infections, leading to treatment failure and to the possibility of transmitting these features to other microorganisms sharing the same niche. In this context, diabetic patients may become a transmission vehicle for microorganisms' clones between community and clinical environments.

Computational Modelling of Pathogenic Protein Behaviour-Governing Mechanisms in the Brain [chapter]

Konstantinos Georgiadis, Alexandra L. Young, Michael Hütel, Adeel Razi, Carla Semedo, Jonathan Schott, Sébastien Ourselin, Jason D. Warren, Marc Modat
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Most neurodegenerative diseases are caused by pathogenic proteins. Pathogenic protein behaviour is governed by neurobiological mechanisms which cause them to spread and accumulate in the brain, leading to cellular death and eventually atrophy. Patient data suggests atrophy loosely follows a number of spatiotemporal patterns, with different patterns associated with each neurodegenerative disease variant. It is hypothesised that the behaviour of different pathogenic protein variants is governed

Machine learning approaches take advantage of the pattern predictability for differential diagnosis and prognosis, but are unable to reveal new information on the underlying mechanisms, which are still poorly understood. We propose a framework where computational models of these mechanisms were created based on neurobiological literature. Competing hypotheses regarding the mechanisms were modelled and the outcomes evaluated against empirical data of Alzheimer's disease. With this approach, we are able to characterise the impact of each mechanism on the neurodegenerative process. We also demonstrate how our framework could evaluate candidate therapies.

T2 relaxometry in the extremely-preterm brain at adolescence

Nicholas Dingwall, Alan Chalk, Teresa I. Martin, Catherine J. Scott, Carla Semedo, Quan Le, Eliza Orasanu, Jorge M. Cardoso, Andrew Melbourne, Neil Marlow, Sebastien Ourselin
2016 Magnetic Resonance Imaging  
Survival following very preterm birth is associated with cognitive and behavioral sequelae, which may have identifiable neural correlates. Many survivors of modern neonatal care in the 1990s are now young adults and the evolution of MRI findings into adult life has rarely been evaluated. We have investigated a cohort of 19-year-old adolescents without severe impairments born between 22 and 26weeks of gestation in 1995 (extremely preterm: EP). Using T2 data derived from magnetic resonance
more » ... we investigate differences between the brains of 46 EP participants (n=46) and the brains of a group of term-born controls (n=20). Despite EP adolescents having significantly reduced gray and white matter volumes, the composition of these tissues, assessed by both single and multi-component relaxometry, appears to be unrelated to either preterm status or gender. This may represent either insensitivity of the imaging technique or reflect that there are only subtle differences between EP subjects and their term-born peers.

Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis is the etiologic agent of caseous lymphadenitis, a common disease in small ruminant populations throughout the world and responsible for a significant economic impact for producers. Case presentation: To our knowledge, this is the first characterization of C. pseudotuberculosis from caseous lymphadenitis lesions in Black Alentejano pig (Sus scrofa domesticus). In this study, phenotypic and genotypic identification methods allocated the swine isolates in C.

Macrorestriction patterns obtained by Pulsed Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE) grouped the C. pseudotuberculosis in two clusters with a high similarity index, which reveals their clonal relatedness. Furthermore, swine isolates were compared with C. pseudotuberculosis from caprines and PFGE patterns also showed high similarity, suggesting the prevalence of dominant clones and a potential cross-dissemination between these two animal hosts. Conclusions: This work represents the first report of Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis from caseous lymphadenitis lesions in Black Alentejano pig and alerts for the importance of the establishment of suitable control and sanitary management practices to control the infection and avoid further dissemination of this important pathogen to other animal hosts.

2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The thalamus is a deep grey matter structure that plays an important role in propagating nerve impulses between subcortical regions and the cerebral cortex. It is composed of distinct nuclei that have unique long-range connectivity. Accurate thalamic nuclei segmentation provides insights about structural connectivity and the neurodegeneration mechanisms occurring in distinct brain disorders, for instance Alzheimer's disease and Frontotemporal dementia (FTD). In this work, we propose a novel

Validation was performed in a cohort of healthy controls and FTD patients against other thalamus connectivity-based parcellation methods. Results showed that the proposed strategy led to anatomical plausible thalamic nuclei segmentations and was able to detect connectivity differences between controls and FTD patients.

Resumo O presente trabalho tem como propósito proceder à validação recíproca para a língua portuguesa da Toxic Leadership Scale e do Empowering Leadership Questionnaire. O conceito de empoderamento e o conceito de toxicidade na liderança são conceptualmente opostos, refletindo, respetivamente, efeitos detrimentais e desenvolvimentais nos colaboradores.

Os índices de precisão (precisão compósita e Alpha de Cronbach) mostram-se adequados. As correlações negativas obtidas entre as dimensões das medidas de liderança tóxica e de liderança empoderadora corroboram a oposição conceptual entre ambos os constructos. O estudo realizado fornece evidência empírica da validade das medidas de liderança tóxica e de liderança empoderadora, constituindo um referencial para a validação noutros países lusófonos. Abstract The purpose of this paper is to validate for the Portuguese language the Toxic Leadership Scale and the Empowering Leadership Questionnaire. The concept of empowerment and the concept of leadership toxicity are conceptually opposite reflecting, respectively, detrimental and developmental effects on subordinates. After the technical procedures of translation (and back translation) of the items of the two instruments, both were applied to a sample of 408 Portuguese workers from several activity sectors. Confirmatory factor analysis indicate a good fit to the original factorial structures of the two instruments. The reliability (composite reliability and Cronbach's Alpha) is adequate. The negative correlations obtained between the dimensions of toxic leadership and empowering leadership support the conceptual opposition between both constructs. This study provides empirical evidence of the validity of the measures of toxic leadership and empowerment leadership, being a reference for validation in other Portuguese-speaking countries.

A mudança no paradigma da gestão das empresas para uma maior preocupação com o seu capital humano tem permitido o surgimento de novas formas de encarar o sucesso organizacional. É ao ter por base esse pressuposto que o presente estudo pretende analisar as relações entre o engagement no trabalho e os recursos laborais e as implicações que os mesmos têm para o desempenho dos trabalhadores. Para isso, contámos com a participação de 101 trabalhadores duma empresa multinacional da área da grande

Os resultados obtidos reforçam a importância dos recursos laborais no surgimento do engagement no local de trabalho e levam-nos a reflectir sobre a adequabilidade dos sistemas formais de avaliação do desempenho. As implicações deste estudo são discutidas à luz da sua relevância para a gestão de recursos humanos. PALAVRAS-CHAVE: engagement no trabalho; recursos laborais; desempenho dos trabalhadores; avaliação de desempenho Durante muito tempo a Psicologia de uma forma geral, e a Psicologia da Saúde Ocupacional em particular, dedicaram-se predominantemente ao estudo dos aspectos negativos na saúde das pessoas, negligenciando o estudo e a procura de compreensão dos recursos e formas "óptimas" do funcionamento humano (Bakker, Schaufeli, Leiter & Taris, 2008a). É nesse sentido que a área da Psicologia Positiva, dando continuidade ao movimento da Psicologia Humanista, vem reafirmar que é importante que a Psicologia procure ser mais abrangente na compreensão do funcionamento do ser humano, e que deve por isso considerar também os aspectos mais positivos do seu comportamento, interiorizando que o tratamento não é apenas o conserto daquilo que estará mal, mas também o fomentar daquilo que é melhor

S C (2014) Epac and the high affinity rolipram binding conformer of PDE4 modulate neurite outgrowth and myelination using an in vitro spinal cord injury model. The objectives of this study were to compare the impact of different coagulase-negative species (CNS) on udder health measured in terms of individual quarter milk somatic cell count (SCC) and duration of intramammary infection, and to get some insight into most likely routes of infection for different CNS species. This longitudinal
more » ... ational study was performed on four farms that were sampled at 4-week intervals for a total of 12 visits each. Quarters infected with CNS were followed through time with milk samples being submitted for bacteriological culture and SCC determination. PCR amplification of the internal transcribed spacer region and sequencing of the sodA and rpoB genes were used for species allocation. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) was performed to assess strain identity. The percentage of quarters affected per farm varied between 6 and 35%, with the most frequently isolated CNS species being Staphylococcus epidermidis, followed by Staph. simulans, Staph. chromogenes and Staph. haemolyticus. It was possible to follow 111 intramammary infections due to CNS through time. Duration of infection had a mean of 188 d and was not significantly different between CNS species. Geometric mean quarter SCC overall was 132 000 cells/ml and was also not significantly different between CNS species. Despite the possibility of a different epidemiology of infection, the impact in terms of udder health seems to be similar for different CNS species.
