Investigation of synergistic antibiotic-essential oil component combinations as a means to preserve the current antibiotic repertoire in Enterococcus sp.
(Society for Applied Microbiology, 2018-11)
Aims To investigate synergistic combinations of Essential Oils (EOs) and vancomycin as potential antimicrobial formulations against Vancomycin-Sensitive Enterococcus faecium (VSE) and Vancomycin-Resistant E. faecium (VRE). ...
Synergistic essential oil-antibiotic combinations as a strategy to maintain the efficacy of current antibiotics against Enterococcus sp.
(British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, 2018-11)
Objectives This study aimed to investigate synergistic combinations of vancomycin and Essential Oils (EOs) as potential antimicrobial formulations against Vancomycin-Sensitive Enterococcus faecium (VSE) and Vancomycin-Resistant ...
Gene expression analysis of transport channels in Enterococcus faecium (VRE)
Introduction: An important aspect of the bacterial response towards stress and environmental stimuli is alteration of gene expression levels . A combination of carvacrol, cuminaldehyde, and vancomycin has previously been ...
Bioautography-Guided Identification of Antimicrobial Essential Oil Components of Oregano, Cumin and Rosewood against Antibiotic Sensitive and Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecium, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa
(American Society of Microbiology, General Meeting, 2017-06)
The increase in antimicrobial resistance and decrease in antibiotics being developed has resulted in the need for new strategies to treat antibiotic resistant infections. Many Essential Oils (EOs) possess broad spectrum ...
Is the antimicrobial mechanism of action of essential oils against bacteria associated with channels similar to TRPV1 channels found in mammalian cells?
(British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, 2018-01-18)
Objectives: The aim of this investigation was to find out if the antimicrobial mechanism of action of Essential Oils (EOs) against Enterococcus spp. may be associated with channels similar to TRPV1 channels found in ...
The mechanism of antibacterial action of Essential Oils against Enterococcus faecium: the role of transport channels
Aims The overall aim of this study is to establish the mechanisms of action of a novel formulation of plant extracts known to be effective against Vancomycin Resistant E. faecium (VRE) isolates. Channels in the bacterial ...
