Staph·y·lo·coc·cus sap·ro·phy·tic·us

(staf'i-lō-kok'ŭs sap-rō-fī'ti-kŭs)
A bacterial species that has been associated with community-acquired urinary tract infections in young women who are sexually active; characterized in the laboratory as gram-positive cocci, but negative for catalase and coagulase.

Staphylococcus saprophyticus

A species that is the second most common cause of urinary tract infection in young, sexually active females. It is a rare cause of pneumonia.

Synthetic 10-(H)-acridin-9-one carbohydrazide analogs (7-27) were tested against different bacterial strains including nine Gram-positive species methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Enterococcus faecalis, Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Corynebacterium diphtheria, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus saprophyticus, Corynebacterium xerosis, Streptococcus pyogene and eleven Gram-negative species Enterobacter, Escherichia coli, E.
En cuanto a los agentes relacionados con la presencia de mastitis en explotaciones lecheras de municipios pertenecientes a la provincia de Pamplona (Tabla 2), se pudo determinar que en 86,7% de los cultivos bacteriologicos de muestras de leche procedentes de cuartos mamarios positivos al CMT se aislaron microorganismos tales como Staphylococcus aureus, otros Staphylococcus (Staphylococcus haemolyticus, Staphylococcus simulans, Staphylococcus saprophyticus) y Streptococcus agalactiae.
Con respecto al aislamiento de Staphylococcus coagulasa negativa, se detecto en 62.5% de los pacientes con cultivos positivos para el genero Staphylococcus, observando un porcentaje mayor de aislamientos que en el estudio realizado por Mena y cols (9) en el ano 2011, en el que refieren que los microorganismos de mayor prevalencia en bolsas periodontales fueron: Staphylococcus saprophyticus con 21.82%, Streptococcus mutans con 20%, Staphylococcus epidermidis con 14.55%, Lactobacillus spp.

As infeccoes do trato urinario (ITU) tratam-se da colonizacao, invasao e propagacao de agentes infecciosos no trato urinario e sao muito comuns durante a gestacao, sendo a bacteria Escherichia coli o uropatogeno mais comumente encontrado, em cerca de 80% das pacientes infectadas, seguidas por outras como Staphylococcus saprophyticus, Proteus sp, Klebsiella sp, Pseudomonas sp, Serratia sp, Enterobacter sp, Enterococcus.
Ninguno de los microorganismos aislados mostro resistencia contra la asociacion trimetoprim/sulfa y al contrario, gran cantidad de bacterias fueron sensibles (Enterobacter spp, Klebsiella spp, Staphylococcus saprophyticus y E.
In the clinical laboratory Staphylococcus saprophyticus is most frequently found as a uropathogen, being one of the leading causes of community acquired urinary tract infection (UTI) in young females (1,2).
Notorious for being considered as cultural contaminants or part of normal skin or mucosal flora, recent advancements in medical technology, especially in prosthetic devices, have proposed a major challenge for the microbiologists to distinguish the contaminant strains from clinically significant CoNS.1 They are now increasingly being reported as a cause of bacteraemia in immunocompromised and hospitalised patients, especially with indwelling medical devices.2 Among CoNS, 50% to 70% catheter-related bloodstream infections are caused by Staphylococcus epidermidis.1,2 Other less frequently isolated CoNS include staphylococcus saprophyticus, staphylococcus lugdunensis, staphylococcus haemolyticus and staphylococcus schleiferi.1
Furthermore, carvacrol was significantly more bactericidal than BITC against all tested microorganisms, and Staphylococcus saprophyticus ATCC 15305 was most sensitive Grampositive bacterium to carvacrol and BITC, while Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853 was most resistant Gram-negative bacterium to both compounds with MIC values ranging from 20 to 1200 [micro]g/ml.
