Article Reference Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae carbonic anhydrase is important for environmental and intracellular survival.
Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) is one of the leading causes of noninvasive mucosal infections, such as otitis media, sinusitis, and conjunctivitis. ...
Article Reference Group A streptococci are protected from amoxicillin-mediated killing by vesicles containing β-lactamase derived from Haemophilus influenzae.
Group A streptococci (GAS) cause, among other infections, pharyngotonsillitis in children. The species is frequently localized with the Gram-negative ...
Article Reference A practical method for preparation of pneumococcal and nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae inocula that preserves viability and immunostimulatory activity.
Convenience is a major reason for using killed preparations of bacteria to investigate host-pathogen interactions, however, host responses to such preparations ...
Article Reference Outer membrane protein P5 is required for resistance of nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae to both the classical and alternative complement pathways.
The complement system is an important first line of defense against the human pathogen Haemophilus influenzae. To survive and propagate in vivo, H. influenzae ...
Article Reference Toxin-antitoxin loci vapBC-1 and vapXD contribute to survival and virulence in nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae.
Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) is a significant human pathogen responsible for respiratory tract infections and the most common cause of recurrent ...
Article Reference QseC controls biofilm formation of non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae in addition to an AI-2-dependent mechanism.
Non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) is a common pathogen associated with diseases such as acute otitis media or exacerbations in patients with chronic ...
Article Reference Dps promotes survival of nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae in biofilm communities in vitro and resistance to clearance in vivo.
Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) is a common airway commensal and opportunistic pathogen that persists within surface-attached biofilm communities. In ...
Article Reference Infant rat infection modifies phenotypic properties of an invasive nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae.
Enhancing the virulence trait of a specific bacterium in an animal model is often performed prior to the use of the strain for ex vivo human studies, such as ...
Article Reference Expression of urease by Haemophilus influenzae during human respiratory tract infection and role in survival in an acid environment.
Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae is a common cause of otitis media in children and lower respiratory tract infection in adults with chronic obstructive ...
Article Reference A novel zinc binding system, ZevAB, is critical for survival of nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae in a murine lung infection model.
Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHI) is a Gram-negative bacterial pathogen that causes upper and lower respiratory infections. Factors required for ...
Article Reference Divergent mechanisms for passive pneumococcal resistance to β-lactam antibiotics in the presence of Haemophilus influenzae.
Otitis media, for which antibiotic treatment failure is increasingly common, is a leading pediatric public health problem.
Article Reference Nontypable Haemophilus influenzae: an intracellular phase within epithelial cells might contribute to persistence.
Article Reference Evidence for a non-replicative intracellular stage of nontypable Haemophilus influenzae in epithelial cells.
Nontypable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) is a Gram-negative, non-capsulated human bacterial pathogen, a major cause of a repertoire of respiratory infections, ...
Article Reference Binding of complement regulators to invasive nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae isolates is not increased compared to nasopharyngeal isolates, but serum resistance is linked to disease severity.
The aim of the present study was to analyze the importance of nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) isolated from patients with sepsis (invasive isolates) ...
Article Reference Haemophilus ducreyi SapA contributes to cathelicidin resistance and virulence in humans.
Haemophilus ducreyi is an extracellular pathogen of human epithelial surfaces that resists human antimicrobial peptides (APs). The organism's genome contains ...
Article Reference Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae isolated from intractable acute otitis media internalized into cultured human epithelial cells.
The aim of this study is to examine the internalization of nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) into human epithelial cells.
Article Reference Antibodies specific for the Hia adhesion proteins of nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae mediate opsonophagocytic activity.
The Hia autotransporter proteins are highly immunogenic surface adhesins expressed by nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHI). The objective of our study was ...
Article Reference Comparative efficacies of different antibiotic treatments to eradicate nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae infection.
Nonencapsulated and nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) is a major cause of human respiratory tract infections. Some strains of NTHi can cause invasive ...
Article Reference Duplicate copies of lic1 direct the addition of multiple phosphocholine residues in the lipopolysaccharide of Haemophilus influenzae.
