A Protocol to Characterize the Morphological Changes of Clostridium difficile in Response to Antibiotic Treatment Bradley Endres1, Eugénie Bassères1, Tasnuva Rashid1, Long Chang2, M. Jahangir Alam1, Kevin W Garey1 1Department of Pharmacy Practice and Translational Research, University of Houston College of Pharmacy, 2Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Houston Antibiotic efficacy is most commonly determined by conducting killing kinetic studies and measuring colony forming units (CFUs). By integrating scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with these standard methods, we can distinguish the pharmacological effects of treatment between different antibiotics.

Penises Not Required: a Systematic Review of the Potential for Human Papillomavirus Horizontal Transmission That is Non-sexual or Does Not Include Penile Penetration Sexual Health. Feb, 2016 | Pubmed ID: 26433493 The primary mode of human papillomavirus (HPV) transmission is through penetrative sex; however, there is evidence of other modes of transmission. No systematic review was found that focussed on HPV horizontal transmission that is not penocentric. A systematic review of the literature by searching Medline (Ovid), PubMed (NLM) and Embase (Ovid) was conducted to retrieve articles published from 1946 to March 2014. Studies that suggested evidence of non-sexual or non-penetrative sexual transmission of α-HPV genotypes were included. After review of 2061 titles and abstracts, 51 studies were abstracted. Fifteen studies examined HPV fomites from medical settings or public environments, and 36 examined HPV in humans. Human papillomavirus DNA was detected in the genital tract of female virgins, with prevalence estimates ranging from 0% to 51.1%. HPV transmission from hands to genitals or genitals to hands was reported for both sexes and heterosexual couples. Other studies commonly found HPV on surfaces in medical settings and public environments. Further studies on non-sexual and non-penetrative sexual transmission are needed to understand the complexity of HPV transmission. Health-care policies may need to be reassessed/established to ensure the safety of medical instruments and to reduce the risk of HPV nosocomial infection.
