Microbiome, l’innovation scientifique dans la cosmétique, une nouvelle segmentation pour Lancôme ?

Tascon, Sara ; Belanger, Josée (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2020 ; TDEE 429.

La conquête de la beauté et de la perfection ne cesse d’attirer les femmes. Dans une industrie en perpétuel changement, le marché est fortement influencé par des attentes des consommateurs. L’analyse du marché des cosmétiques permet de comprendre davantage sur ce qui pousse à l’innovation et plus particulièrement ce qui a encouragé les marques à amplifier leurs recherches sur...

Efficacy of dual carbapenem treatment in a murine sepsis model of infection due to carbapenemase-producing Acinetobacter baumannii

Cebrero-Cangueiro, T. ; Nordmann, Patrice ; Carretero-Ledesma, M. ; Pachón, J. ; Pachón-Ibáñez, M. E.

In: Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, 2020, p. dkaa487

Objectives: To evaluate the in vivo efficacy of a dual carbapenem combination containing imipenem plus meropenem against carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii producing carbapenemases OXA-23 or OXA-58.Methods: An experimental model of peritonitis using C57BL/6J female mice was developed and the minimum lethal doses were calculated for infections due to OXA-23 or OXA-58 producers of A. ...

NGS-based S. aureus typing and outbreak analysis in clinical microbiology laboratories: lessons learned from a Swiss-wide proficiency test

Dylus, David ; Pillonel, Trestan ; Opota, Onya ; Wüthrich, Daniel ; Seth-Smith, Helena M. B. ; Egli, Adrian ; Leo, Stefano ; Lazarevic, Vladimir ; Schrenzel, Jacques ; Laurent, Sacha ; Bertelli, Claire ; Blanc, Dominique S. ; Neuenschwander, Stefan ; Ramette, Alban ; Falquet, Laurent ; Imkamp, Frank ; Keller, Peter M. ; Kahles, Andre ; Oberhaensli, Simone ; Barbié, Valérie ; Dessimoz, Christophe ; Greub, Gilbert ; Lebrand, Aitana

Whole genome sequencing (WGS) enables high resolution typing of bacteria up to the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) level. WGS is used in clinical microbiology laboratories for infection control, molecular surveillance and outbreak analyses. Given the large palette of WGS reagents and bioinformatics tools, the Swiss clinical bacteriology community decided to conduct a ring trial (RT) to...

High colonization rate and heterogeneity of ESBL- and carbapenemase-producing enterobacteriaceae isolated from gull feces in Lisbon, Portugal

Aires-de-Sousa, Marta ; Fournier, Claudine ; Lopes, Elizeth ; Lencastre, Hermínia de ; Nordmann, Patrice ; Poirel, Laurent

In: Microorganisms, 2020, vol. 8, no. 10, p. 1487

In order to evaluate whether seagulls living on the Lisbon coastline, Portugal, might be colonized and consequently represent potential spreaders of multidrug-resistant bacteria, a total of 88 gull fecal samples were screened for detection of extended- spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)- or carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and for...

An ATP-dependent partner switch links flagellar C-ring assembly with gene expression

Blagotinsek, Vitan ; Schwan, Meike ; Steinchen, Wieland ; Mrusek, Devid ; Hook, John C. ; Rossmann, Florian ; Freibert, Sven A. ; Kratzat, Hanna ; Murat, Guillaume ; Kressler, Dieter ; Beckmann, Roland ; Beeby, Morgan ; Thormann, Kai M. ; Bange, Gert

In: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2020, vol. 117, no. 34, p. 20826–20835

Bacterial flagella differ in their number and spatial arrangement. In many species, the MinD-type ATPase FlhG (also YlxH/FleN) is central to the numerical control of bacterial flagella, and its deletion in polarly flagellated bacteria typically leads to hyperflagellation. The molecular mechanism underlying this numerical control, however, remains enigmatic. Using the model species Shewanella...

An analog to digital converter controls bistable transfer competence development of a widespread bacterial integrative and conjugative element

Carraro, Nicolas ; Richard, Xavier ; Sulser, Sandra ; Delavat, Franc¸ois ; Mazza, Christian ; van der Meer, Jan Roelof

In: eLife, 2020, vol. 9, p. e57915

Conjugative transfer of the integrative and conjugative element ICEclc in Pseudomonas requires development of a transfer competence state in stationary phase, which arises only in 3–5% of individual cells. The mechanisms controlling this bistable switch between non-active and transfer competent cells have long remained enigmatic. Using a variety of genetic tools and epistasis experiments in...

Wide spread of carbapenemase-producing bacterial isolates in a Nigerian environment

Terrier, Christophe Le ; Masseron, Amandine ; Uwaezuoke, Nkolika Stella ; P.Edwin, Chinagozi ; E.Ekuma, Agantem ; Olugbeminiyi, Folake ; Shettima, Shuwaram ; Ushie, Simon ; Poirel, Laurent ; Nordmann, Patrice

In: Journal of Global Antimicrobial Resistance, 2020, vol. 21, p. 321–323

Objectives: The presence of carbapenemase-producing bacterial isolates is found not only in hospital and community settings but also in the environment. Carbapenemase production may be related to acquired, usually plasmid-borne, β-lactamase genes or to chromosomal genes intrinsic to various species. The aim of this study was to evaluate the occurrence of such carbapenemase-producing...

S-methyl methanethiosulfonate: promising late blight inhibitor or broad range toxin?

Joller, Charlotte ; Vrieze, Mout De ; Moradi, Aboubakr ; Fournier, Claudine ; Chinchilla, Delphine ; L’Haridon, Floriane ; Bruisson, Sebastien ; Weisskopf, Laure

In: Pathogens, 2020, vol. 9, no. 6, p. 496

(1) Background: S-methyl methanethiosulfonate (MMTS), a sulfur containing volatile organic compound produced by plants and bacterial species, has recently been described to be an efficient anti-oomycete agent with promising perspectives for the control of the devastating potato late blight disease caused by Phytophthora infestans. However, earlier work raised questions regarding the putative...

Breast milk microbiota: A review of the factors that influence composition

Zimmermann, Petra ; Curtis, Nigel

In: Journal of Infection, 2020, vol. 81, no. 1, p. 17–47

Breastfeeding is associated with considerable health benefits for infants. Aside from essential nutrients, immune cells and bioactive components, breast milk also contains a diverse range of microbes, which are important for maintaining mammary and infant health. In this review, we summarise studies that have investigated the composition of the breast milk microbiota and factors that might...

Study protocol for the ABERRANT study: antibiotic-induced disruption of the maternal and infant microbiome and adverse health outcomes — a prospective cohort study among children born at term

Volery, Maryse ; Scherz, Valentin ; Jakob, William ; Bandeira, Diane ; Deggim-Messmer, Vanessa ; Lauber-Biason, Anna ; Wildhaber, Johannes ; Falquet, Laurent ; Curtis, Nigel ; Zimmermann, Petra

In: BMJ Open, 2020, vol. 10, no. 6, p. e036275

Introduction: There is compositional overlap between the maternal intestinal microbiome, the breast milk microbiome and the infant oral and intestinal microbiome. Antibiotics cause profound changes in the microbiome. However, the effect of intrapartum and early-life antibiotics on the maternal intestinal and breast milk microbiome, and the infant oral and intestinal microbiome, and whether...
