Mouse Models for Evaluation of Vaccines and Therapeutics Against Staphylococcal Infections

Introduction

Staphylococcus aureus (SA) is a ubiquitous, formidable Gram-positive pathogen associated with skin and soft tissue, as well as lifethreatening systemic infections. SA is a leading cause of hospital- and community-associated infections worldwide, affecting humans and animals. The wide range of pathologies reflects the diverse abilities of this microbe to escape the innate and adaptive immune response using virulence factors. Since its first emergence in the 1960s methicillin-resistant SA (MRSA) has become endemic in hospitals and healthcare settings worldwide. In the 1990s, community associated MRSA strains (CA-MRSA) emerged, and are spreading worldwide posing a major global challenge.

Time lapse photography to demonstrate the potential antimicrobial abilities of Dycem contamination control flooring

Dycem

A defined volume of bioluminescent reporter bacteria was deposited onto 20 mm x 20 mm coupons of Dycem flooring, vinyl tile and ITW Alma tacky mat. Through monitoring of bacterial bioluminescence, metabolic inhibition was observed on all three surfaces however the effect occurred more rapidly on Dycem flooring than on vinyl or ITW Alma. Recovery counts after three hours of exposure to the floor surfaces showed between a 65% and 100% decrease in the number of viable organisms recovered from Dycem flooring compared to controls. On vinyl and ITW Alma flooring, there were slight increases in the number of viable survivors recovered compared to controls. Dycem flooring inhibited the metabolic activity and reduced the number of viable survivors recovered of Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium DT104 pGLITE. It remains unclear as to whether this effect is attributable to the impregnated biocide or rapid drying of the inoculum on this surface.
