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  - We report an innovative low-cost wet  precipitation  synthesis  method  for  gelatin-modified   zinc oxide nanoparticles (GM ZnO NPs) at the inter- face  between  the  gelatin  hydrogel  and  aqueous  elec- trolyte.  Diffusion  of  ammonia  through  the  hydrogel   matrices with different gelatin contents induced pre- cipitation  of  the  product  in  contact  with  the  surface   of  the  aqueous  solution  of  zinc  ions.  The  obtained   precipitate  was  subjected  to  thermal  treatment  to  partially  decompose  the  adsorbed  gelatin  in  the  NP   structure. Physicochemical properties of obtained  GM  ZnO  NPs  were  characterized  by  X-ray  powder   diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy  (SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy  (FTIR), differential thermal analysis (DTA), thermo- gravimetry (TG), photon correlation spectroscopy  (PCS),  zeta  potential  measurements,  and  inductively   coupled  plasma-mass  spectrometry  (ICP-MS).  The   estimated mean crystallite size of GM ZnO NP pow- ders was in the range from 5.8 to 12.1 nm. The syn- thesized  NPs  exhibited  nanosheet  morphology  and   arranged into flake-like aggregates. The toxic poten- tial was investigated in vitro in human hepatocellular  carcinoma cell line HepG2. The thiazolyl blue tetra- zolium bromide (MTS) assay was used to assess cell  viability,  2′,7′-dichlor-fluorescein-diacetate  (DCFH- DA)  assay  to  examine  the  formation  of  intracellu- lar  reactive  oxygen  species  (ROS),  and  comet  assay   to  evaluate  the  genotoxic  response.  GM  ZnO  NPs   slightly reduced HepG2 cell viability, did not induce  ROS formation, and showed low genotoxic potential  at  very  high  doses  (100  μg    mL−1).  ZnO  NPs  fabri- cated  and  modified  using  the  proposed  methodol- ogy deserve further study as potential candidates for  antibacterial agents or dietary supplements with low  overall toxicity.

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  - 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.

The  obtained   precipitate  was  subjected  to  thermal  treatment  to  partially  decompose  the  adsorbed  gelatin  in  the  NP   structure. Physicochemical properties of obtained  GM  ZnO  NPs  were  characterized  by  X-ray  powder   diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy  (SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy  (FTIR), differential thermal analysis (DTA), thermo- gravimetry (TG), photon correlation spectroscopy  (PCS),  zeta  potential  measurements,  and  inductively   coupled  plasma-mass  spectrometry  (ICP-MS).  The   estimated mean crystallite size of GM ZnO NP pow- ders was in the range from 5.8 to 12.1 nm. The syn- thesized  NPs  exhibited  nanosheet  morphology  and   arranged into flake-like aggregates. The toxic poten- tial was investigated in vitro in human hepatocellular  carcinoma cell line HepG2. The thiazolyl blue tetra- zolium bromide (MTS) assay was used to assess cell  viability,  2′,7′-dichlor-fluorescein-diacetate  (DCFH- DA)  assay  to  examine  the  formation  of  intracellu- lar  reactive  oxygen  species  (ROS),  and  comet  assay   to  evaluate  the  genotoxic  response.  GM  ZnO  NPs   slightly reduced HepG2 cell viability, did not induce  ROS formation, and showed low genotoxic potential  at  very  high  doses  (100  μg    mL−1).  ZnO  NPs  fabri- cated  and  modified  using  the  proposed  methodol- ogy deserve further study as potential candidates for  antibacterial agents or dietary supplements with low  overall toxicity.

AB  - Cadmium (Cd) ranks seventh on the list of most significant potential threats to human health based on its suspected toxicity and the possibility of exposure to it. It has been reported that some bacterial exopolysaccharides (EPSs) have the ability to bind heavy metal ions. We therefore investigated the capacity of eight EPS-producing lactobacilli to adsorb Cd in the present study, and Lactiplantibacillus plantarum BGAN8 was chosen as the best candidate. In addition, we demonstrate that an EPS derived from BGAN8 (EPS-AN8) exhibits a high Cd-binding capacity and prevents Cd-mediated toxicity in intestinal epithelial Caco-2 cells. Simultaneous use of EPS-AN8 with Cd treatment prevents inflammation, disruption of tight-junction proteins, and oxidative stress. Our results indicate that the EPS in question has a strong potential to be used as a postbiotic in combatting the adverse effects of Cd. Moreover, we show that higher concentrations of EPS-AN8 can alleviate Cd-induced cell damage.

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  - Resveratrol, polyphenol from stilbene family, has demonstrated beneficial effects on human health in numerous studies. Among these effects are cardioprotective, anti-cancer, neuroprotective, antimicrobial and other. In vivo, application of this phytochemical often lacks significant results. This is mainly because of its poor bioavailability, caused by low water solubility, sensitivity to light, oxygen and pH change, and high reactivity. Micro- and nanoformulations of resveratrol have been described to highly improve bioavailabiliy. However, there are limitations to this approach, such as demanding synthesis process, necessity of expensive or toxic chemicals, or poor loading capacity. We have used a simple physicochemical solvent-non solvent method to synthetise additive-free, stabile and uniform elongated resveratrol micro- and nanoparticles (RES-particles). The drying conditions were varied to examine their influence on the morphological characteristics of resveratrol particles. Differential effects of drying at ambient, low, and elevated temperature as well as effects of centrifugation and stability of RES-particle suspension during the time were documented. RES-particles were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectrophotometry, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and optical microscopy. Biocompatibility of RESparticles was preliminary assessed through MTT toxicity assay.

abstract = "Resveratrol, polyphenol from stilbene family, has demonstrated beneficial effects on human health in numerous studies. Among these effects are cardioprotective, anti-cancer, neuroprotective, antimicrobial and other. In vivo, application of this phytochemical often lacks significant results. This is mainly because of its poor bioavailability, caused by low water solubility, sensitivity to light, oxygen and pH change, and high reactivity. Micro- and nanoformulations of resveratrol have been described to highly improve bioavailabiliy. However, there are limitations to this approach, such as demanding synthesis process, necessity of expensive or toxic chemicals, or poor loading capacity. We have used a simple physicochemical solvent-non solvent method to synthetise additive-free, stabile and uniform elongated resveratrol micro- and nanoparticles (RES-particles). The drying conditions were varied to examine their influence on the morphological characteristics of resveratrol particles. Differential effects of drying at ambient, low, and elevated temperature as well as effects of centrifugation and stability of RES-particle suspension during the time were documented. RES-particles were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectrophotometry, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and optical microscopy. Biocompatibility of RESparticles was preliminary assessed through MTT toxicity assay.",

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  - 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.

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  - Poly (ε-caprolactone) (PCL) microspheres as a carrier for sustained release of antibacterial agent, selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs), were developed. The obtained PCL/SeNPs microspheres were in the range 1–4 μm with the encapsulation efficiency of about 90%. The degradation process and release behavior of SeNPs from PCL microspheres were investigated in five different degradation media: phosphate buffer solution (PBS), a solution of lipase isolated from the porcine pancreas in PBS, 0.1 M hydrochloric acid (HCl), Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 cell-free extract in PBS and implant fluid (exudate) from the subcutaneously implanted sterile polyvinyl sponges which induce a foreign-body inflammatory reaction. The samples were thoroughly characterized by SEM, TEM, FTIR, XRD, PSA, DSC, confocal microscopy, and ICP-OES techniques. Under physiological conditions at neutral pH, a very slow release of SeNPs occurred (3 and 8% in the case of PBS or PBS + lipase, respectively and after 660 days), while in the acidic environment their presence was not detected. On the other hand, the release in the medium with bacterial extract was much more pronounced, even after 24 h (13%). After 7 days, the concentration of SeNPs reached a maximum of around 30%. Also, 37% of SeNPs have been released after 11 days of incubation of PCL/SeNPs in the implant exudate. These results suggest that the release of SeNPs from PCL was triggered by Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 bacterium as well as by foreign body inflammatory reaction to implant. Furthermore, PCL/SeNPs microspheres were investigated in terms of their biocompatibility. For this purpose, cytotoxicity, the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), and genotoxicity were evaluated on HepG2 cell line. The interaction of PCL/SeNPs with phagocytic cell line (Raw 264.7 macrophages) was monitored as well. It was found that the microspheres in investigated concentration range had no acute cytotoxic effects. Finally, SeNPs, as well as PCL/SeNPs, showed a considerable antibacterial activity against Gram-positive bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 25923) and Staphylococcus epidermidis (ATCC 1228). These results suggest that PCL/SeNPs-based system could be an attractive platform for a prolonged prevention of infections accompanying implants. © 2018 Elsevier B.V.
