AB  - An increasing lack of available therapeutic options against Acinetobacter baumannii urged researchers to seek alternative ways to fight this extremely resistant nosocomial pathogen. Targeting its virulence appears to be a promising strategy, as it offers considerably reduced selection of resistant mutants. In this study, we tested antibiofilm potential of four synthetic chalcone derivatives against A. baumannii. Compound that showed the greatest activity was selected for further evaluation of its antivirulence properties. Real-time PCR was used to evaluate mRNA expression of biofilm-associated virulence factor genes (ompA, bap, abaI) in treated A. baumannii strains. Also, we examined virulence properties related to the expression of these genes, such as fibronectin- and collagen-mediated adhesion, surface motility, and quorum-sensing activity. The results revealed that the expression of all tested genes is downregulated together with the reduction of adhesion and motility. The conclusion is that 2′-hydroxy-2-methoxychalcone exhibits antivirulence activity against A. baumannii by inhibiting the expression of ompA and bap genes, which is reflected in reduced biofilm formation, adhesion, and surface motility.

AB  - Although selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs) have gained attention in the scientific community mostly through investigation of their anticancer activity, a great potential of this nanomaterial was recognized recently regarding its antimicrobial activity. The particle form, size, and surface chemistry have been recognized as crucial parameters determining the interaction of nanomaterials with biological entities. Furthermore, considering a narrow boundary between beneficial and toxic effects for selenium per se, it is clear that investigations of biomedical applications of SeNPs are very demanding and must be done with great precautions. The goal of this work is to evaluate the effects of SeNPs surface chemistry and structure on antimicrobial activity against several common bacterial strains, including Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 6538), Enterococcus faecalis (ATCC 29212), Bacillus subtilis (ATCC 6633), and Kocuria rhizophila (ATCC 9341), as well as Escherichia coli (ATCC 8739), Salmonella Abony (NCTC 6017), Klebsiella pneumoniae (NCIMB 9111) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (ATCC 9027), and the standard yeast strain Candida albicans (ATCC 10231). Three types of SeNPs were synthesized by chemical reduction approach using different stabilizers and reducing agents: (i) bovine serum albumin (BSA) + ascorbic acid, (ii) chitosan + ascorbic acid, and (iii) with glucose. A thorough physicochemical characterization of the obtained SeNPs was performed to determine the effects of varying synthesis parameters on their morphology, size, structure, and surface chemistry. All SeNPs were amorphous, with spherical morphology and size in the range 70–300 nm. However, the SeNPs obtained under different synthesis conditions, i.e. by using different stabilizers as well as reducing agents, exhibited different antimicrobial activity as well as cytotoxicity which are crucial for their applications. In this paper, the antimicrobial screening of the selected systems is presented, which was determined by the broth microdilution method, and inhibitory influence on the production of monomicrobial and dual-species biofilm was evaluated. The potential mechanism of action of different systems is proposed. Additionally, the cytotoxicity of SeNPs was examined on the MRC-5 cell line, in the same concentration interval as for antimicrobial testing. It was shown that formulation SeNPs-BSA expressed a significantly lower cytotoxic effect than the other two formulations.

AB  - Infectious diseases are a significant burden on the public health and the economic stability of societies all over the world. Drug resistance presents an ever-increasing global public health threat that involves all major microbial pathogens and antimicrobial drugs. The considerable concern regarding bacterial resistance to antimicrobial agents, bacterial adhesion, and proliferation has generated intense research in this field. Although urgently needed, an effective and long-lasting solution to this problem, i.e. microbial and especially bacterial colonization, has not yet been found. In the last decades, nanomaterials have attracted much attention because of their unique physical, chemical, and mechanical properties, due to their high surface area and size at the nanoscale. Owing to these extraordinary characteristics, nanomaterials are appropriate candidates for various applications in different fields such as medicine, pharmacy, food industry, etc. New strategies based on the use of nanomaterials such as nanoparticles, nanocapsules, nanogels, nanofibers, nanocomposites, or nanocoatings for controlling microbial virulence factors are very promising. In addition special focus recently is paid on nanostructured polymeric materials and nanocomposites with antimicrobial properties. The increasing attention within the scientific community regarding this topic can be easily assessed by searching the suitable keywords in some recognized literature databases. According to Scopus, in the last 10 years, more than 1,300 peer-reviewed documents have been published jointly containing keywords such as “nanocomposites” and “antimicrobial”. Interestingly, in the more specified search which refers to the utilization of nanostructured polymeric materials, it could be observed a similar profile i.e. growing tendency.

AB  - Acinetobacter baumannii je globalno rasprostranjen nozokomijalni patogen koji se odlikuje izuzetnom sposobnošću ekstremno brzog sticanja rezistencije na antibiotike, kao i adaptacije na preživljavanje u suvim uslovima bolničke sredine [1]. Zbog velike zastupljenosti rezistentnih sojeva protiv kojih ne postoji delotvorna terapija, Svetska zdravstvena organizacija (WHO, 2017) i Centri za kontrolu i prevenciju bolesti (CDC, 2019), označili su A. baumannii kao patogen od kritične važnosti za otkriće novih antimikrobnih agenasa ili novih terapijskih strategija [2]. Targetiranje virulencije je oblik alternativnog terapijskog pristupa koji pruža mogućnost prevencije teže kliničke slike kod inficiranih pacijenata posredstvom inhibicije ekspresije ključnih faktora virulencije, uz istovremenu redukovanu selekciju rezistentnih mutanata [3].Rezultati i Diskusija: Od četiri različito supstituisana hidroksihalkona, sintetisanih u postupku bazno-katalizovane Claisen-Schmidt kondenzacije, selektiran je metkosi-supstituisani derivat kao najpotentniji inhibitor produkcije biofilma kod A. baumannii. Primenom Real-Time kvantitativne PCR metode sa reverznom transkriptazom ispitan je uticaj subinhibitornih koncentracija selektiranog jedinjenja (70, 35 i 10 μg/mL) na ekspresiju gena faktora virulencije povezanih sa produkcijom biofilma kod A. baumannii: ompA, bap i abaI. Pokazana je značajna dozno-zavisna nishodna ekspresija ompA gena, koji kodira OmpA protein spoljašnje membrane ćelijskog zida, koji učestvuje u brojnim virulentnim osobinama A. baumannii, kao što su adhezija, citotoksičnost, motilitet i rezistencija na imunski odgovor i antibiotike [4]. Takođe, zabeležena je značajna inhibicija ekspresije bap gena, koja je neophodna za adheziju na humane epitelne ćelije, i abaI gena, integralnog dela bakterijskog kvorum-sensing sistema, koji kodira sintazu autoinduktorskih molekula. Sposobnost antivirulentnog delovanja metoksi-supstituisanog derivata hidroksihalkona potvrđena je demonstracijom inhibicije fenotipske ekspresije faktora virulencije povezanih sa ekspresijom ompA, bap i abaI gena, kao što su adhezija za komponente ekstracelularnog matriksa (fibronektin i kolagen), površinski motilitet i produkcija autoinduktorskih molekula.Zaključak: Metoksi-supstituisani hidroksihalkon ispoljava antivirulentno dejstvo protiv A. baumannii, pre svega posredstvom nishodne regulacije ompA gena, što se reflektuje u inhibiciji produkcije biofilma, sposobnosti adhezije i površinskog motiliteta ovog patogena.
AB  - Over the last two decades, Acinetobacter baumannii has emerged as one of the most troublesome pathogens, rapidly acquiring resistance to virtually all available antibiotics. This has urged researchers to seek alternative ways to fight this pathogen. Targeting its virulence appears to be a promising strategy, as it offers considerably reduced selection of resistant mutants. In this study, we tested antibiofilm activity of four synthetic chalcone derivatives against A. baumannii. Compound that showed the greatest activity was selected for further evaluation of its antivirulence properties. We used quantitative Real-Time PCR to evaluate mRNA expression of virulence-associated genes (ompA, bap, abaI) in extensively drug-resistant (XDR) A. baumannii wound isolate and A. baumannii ATCC 19606 strain, treated with selected compound. Also, we tested biofilm production, fibronectin- and collagen-mediated adhesion, surface motility and quorum-sensing activity of treated strains. The results revealed downregulation of the expression of all tested virulence genes together with the reduction of biofilm production, adhesion and motility. The most notable finding is significant reduction of ompA gene expression, whose encoded protein product is associated with numerous virulence traits of A. baumannii. Therefore, we conclude that selected methoxy-substituted hydroxychalcone exhibits antivirulence activity against A. baumannii by inhibiting the expression of the bacterial adhesins, most importantly OmpA, which is reflected in reduced biofilm formation, adhesion and surface motility.

AB  - The aim of this study was to test the potential of high molecular weight exopolysaccharide (EPS) produced by the putative probiotic strain Lactobacillus paraplantarum BGCG11 (EPS CG11) to alleviate inflammatory pain in Wistar rats. The EPS CG11 was isolated from bacterial surface and was subjected to Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and thermal analysis. FTIR spectra confirmed the polysaccharide structure of isolated sample, while the thermal methods revealed good thermal properties of the polymer. The antihyperalgesic and antiedematous effects of the EPS CG11 were examined in the rat model of inflammation induced by carrageenan injection in hind paw. The results showed that the intraperitoneal administration of EPS CG11 produced a significant decrease in pain sensations (mechanical hyperalgesia) and a paw swelling in a dose-dependent manner as it was measured using Von Frey anesthesiometer and plethysmometer, respectively. These effects were followed by a decreased expression of IL-1β and iNOS mRNAs in rat’s paw tissue suggesting that the antihyperalgesic and antiedematous effects of the EPS CG11 are related to the suppression of inflammatory response. Additionally, we demonstrated that EPS CG11 exhibits immunosuppressive properties in the peritonitis model induced by carrageenan. Expression levels of pro-inflammatory mediators IL-1β, TNF-α and iNOS were decreased, together with the enhanced secretion of anti-inflammatory IL-10 and IL-6 cytokines, while neutrophil infiltration was not changed. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study which reports an antihyperalgesic effect as the novel property of bacterial EPSs. Given the high demands of pharmaceutical industry for the replacement of commonly used analgesics due to numerous side effects, this study describes a promising natural compound for the future pharmacological testing in the area.

AB  - Copolymer poly (DL-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) is extensively investigated for various biomedical applications such as controlled drug delivery or carriers in the tissue engineering. In addition, zinc oxide (ZnO) is widely used in biomedicine especially for materials like dental composites, as a constituent of creams for the treatment of a variety of skin irritations, to enhance the antibacterial activity of different medicaments and so on. Uniform, spherical ZnO nanoparticles (nano-ZnO) have been synthesized via microwave synthesis method. In addition to obtaining nano-ZnO, a further aim was to examine their immobilization in the PLGA polymer matrix (PLGA/nano-ZnO) and this was done by a simple physicochemical solvent/nonsolvent method. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, laser diffraction particle size analyzer, differential thermal analysis, and thermal gravimetric analysis. The synthesized PLGA/nano-ZnO particles are spherical, uniform, and with diameters below 1 µm. The influence of the different solvents and the drying methods during the synthesis was investigated too. The biocompatibility of the samples is discussed in terms of in vitro toxicity on human hepatoma HepG2 cells by application of MTT assay and the antimicrobial activity was evaluated by broth microdilution method against different groups of microorganisms (Gram-positive bacteria, Gram-negative bacteria, and yeast Candida albicans).

AB  - n the bone tissue engineering field, there is a growing interest in the application of bioactive glass scaffolds (45S5Bioglass®) due to their bone bonding ability, osteoconductivity and osteoinductivity. However, such scaffolds still lack some of the required functionalities to enable the successful formation of new bone, e.g. effective antibacterial properties. A large number of studies suggest that selenium (Se) has significant role in antioxidant protection, enhanced immune surveillance and modulation of cell proliferation. Selenium nanoparticles (SeNp) have also been reported to possess antibacterial as well as antiviral activities. In this investigation, uniform, stable, amorphous SeNp have been synthesized and additionally immobilized within spherical PLGA particles (PLGA/SeNp). These particles were used to coat bioactive glass-based scaffolds synthesized by the foam replica method. Samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). SeNp, 45S5Bioglass®/SeNp and 45S5Bioglass®/PLGA/SeNp showed a considerable antibacterial activity against Gram positive bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis, one of the main causative agents of orthopedic infections. The functionalized Se-coated bioactive glass scaffolds represent a new family of bioactive, antibacterial scaffolds for bone tissue engineering applications.

AB  - In the bone tissue engineering field, there is growing interest in the application of bioglass scaffolds due to their bone bonding ability and osteoconductivity. However such scaffolds still lack some of the required functionalities to enable the successful formation of new bone, e.g. enhanced bioactivity by incorporation of bioactive molecules or growth factors and effective antibacterial properties. A large number of epidemiological, preclinical, and clinical trials suggest that selenium (Se) has significant role in antioxidant protection, enhanced immune surveillance and modulation of cell proliferation. Selenium nanoparticles (SeNp) have also been reported to possess antibacterial as well as antiviral activities. Studies also provide evidence that Se intake may be necessary for bone health. Poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) micro and nanoparticles are used for the controlled delivery of several classes of medicaments such as growth factors, antibiotics, antimicrobial agents etc. Uniform, stable, amorphous SeNps have been synthesized and additionally encapsulated within spherical PLGA particles (PLGA/SeNps).

AB  - Copolymer poly (DL-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA), due of its biodegradable and biocompatible nature, is widely used in various medical applications; controlled release of delivering drugs, carriers in the tissue engineering, etc. On the other hand, zinc oxide (ZnO) is extensively used in medicine and pharmacy for personal care products, as well as in biomedical materials like dental composites, as a material for treatment of a variety of skin irritations, to enhance the antibacterial activity of different medicaments, etc. In this research we have dealt with a procedure to prepare particles of poly (lactide-co-glycolide) and nano zinc oxide (PLGA/nano-ZnO). Nano-ZnO has been synthesized using a microwave synthesis method and additionally immobilized within PLGA by physicochemical solvent/non-solvent method. Firstly, ZnO has been dispersed in acetone and then additionally added dropwise in the PLGA/ethyl acetate (PLGA/nano-ZnO(EtAc) or PLGA/acetone (PLGA/nano-ZnO(Ac)) solutions, respectively. The as-prepared dispersions were dried in air atmosphere for 24 h. 
The characterization of the prepared samples was performed using X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) method for the structure properties, field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE SEM) for the investigation of particles morphology, as well as Malvern’s Mastersizer instrument for particle size distribution. DTA-TG measurements were performed in order to investigate the samples thermal stability and mass loss percentage. The antimicrobial behavior of the synthesized PLGA/nano-ZnO particles was tested against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria cultures and also against Candida Albicans, diploid fungus.

AB  - A water-soluble antioxidant (ascorbic acid, vitamin C) was encapsulated together with poly(l-glutamic acid)-capped silver nanoparticles (AgNpPGA) within a poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) polymeric matrix and their synergistic effects were studied. The PLGA/AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid particles synthesized by a physicochemical method with solvent/non-solvent systems are spherical, have a mean diameter of 775 nm and a narrow size distribution with a polydispersity index of 0.158. The encapsulation efficiency of AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid within PLGA was determined to be >90%. The entire amount of encapsulated ascorbic acid was released in 68 days, and the entire amount of AgNpPGAs was released in 87 days of degradation. The influence of PLGA/AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid on cell viability, generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in HepG2 cells, as well as antimicrobial activity against seven different pathogens was investigated. The 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay indicated good biocompatibility of these PLGA/AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid particles. We measured the kinetics of ROS formation in HepG2 cells by a DCFH-DA assay, and found that PLGA/AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid caused a significant decrease in DCF fluorescence intensity, which was 2-fold lower than that in control cells after a 5 h exposure. This indicates that the PLGA/AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid microspheres either act as scavengers of intracellular ROS and/or reduce their formation. Also, the results of antimicrobial activity of PLGA/AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid obtained by the broth microdilution method showed superior and extended activity of these particles. The samples were characterized using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, field-emission scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, zeta potential and particle size analysis. This paper presents a new approach to the treatment of infection that at the same time offers a very pronounced antioxidant effect.

AB  - Silver nanoparticles (AgNps) were prepared by modified chemical reduction with poly (α, γ, l-glutamic acid) (PGA) as capping agent. These Ag/PGA nanoparticles (AgNpPGAs) were highly stable over long periods of time without signs of precipitation. In addition to obtaining stable AgNpPGAs, a further aim was to examine their encapsulation in the poly(L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) polymer matrix. The current interest of polymer-AgNps in biomedical applications is because a versatile system must have antimicrobial activity upon target contact, without the release of toxic biocides. The synthesis of these PLGA/AgNpPGAs used physicochemical methods with solvent/non-solvent systems. Degradation of these PLGA/AgNpPGAs and the release rate of their AgNPs were studied in physiological solution over three months. The antimicrobial activity of the samples was investigated towards six laboratory control strains from the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) and one clinical isolate methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus strain by the broth microdilution method and the results showed superior and extended activity of PLGA/AgNpPGAs. The 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay indicated good biocompatibility of these PLGA/AgNpPGAs. The formation of intracellular reactive oxygen species was measured spectrophotometrically using a fluorescent probe, which showed that these PLGA/AgNpPGAs are not inducers of such species. The samples were characterized by UV–VIS spectrometry, X-ray diffraction, zeta potential measurements, field-emission scanning electron microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy.

AB  - Silver nanoparticles (AgNps) were prepared by modified chemical reduction with poly (Lglutamic acid) (PGA) as capping agent. These Ag/PGA nanoparticles (AgNpPGAs) were highly stable over the long periods of time without signs of precipitation. Ascorbic acid, a water soluble antioxidant, was encapsulated together with these stable AgNpPGAs within poly(DL-lactide-coglycolide) polymeric matrix and their synergistic antimicrobial effect was studied. The antimicrobial activity of the samples was investigated towards six laboratory control strains from the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) and one clinical isolate methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus strain by the broth microdilution method. The 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay indicated good biocompatibility of the samples. To establish the influence of PLGA/AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid nanoparticles on intracellular ROS formation, we measured the kinetics of their formation in HepG2 cells by DCFH-DA assay. The samples were characterized by UV-VIS spectrometry, field-emission scanning electron microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy.
