Treatments For Proteus Mirabilis
Proteus mirabilis: I am assuming you have UTI with this organism. If so, Amoxicillin may be quite effective, assuming the strain you have is sensitive. Of greater concern is the fact that this bug is often present more often in complicated utis and perhaps this should be discussed with your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
Is it normal that proteus mirabilis becomes resistant to prulifloxacin? And in what cases it becomes resistant??
Yes: Some bacteria, (fortunately not all), including P. Mirabilis, can become resistant to any antibiotic which it was previously sensitive to. This usually happens when the bacteria has been exposed to that antibiotic ( or a similar antibiotic from the same group) on a number of occasions and it develops a mechanism to evade the effect of the antibiotics. ...Read more
A question answered here said proteus mirabilis can be passed by human contact. Then i asked if it could be passed sexually. Answer was no. Is it true?
Yes, no, or maybe: Depends on how one looks at the words. Sexual contact is a type of human contact, so anything that can be transmitted by human contact obviously can be transmitted by sexual contact. However, doctors usually only say the typical std's (sti's, sexually transmitted infections) are transmitted sexually. Chicken pox can go from person to person while they have sex, but it's "not sexually transmitted". ...Read more

Whats the difference between a urinanaylsis and a urine culture? Which would be best to detect proteus mirabilis? Would both be able to do it?
Cultures are best: A urinalysis is a quick check of the urine that shows the presence of blood, protein, ph, specific gravity, and a quick evaluation of possible infection. It can be done in a couple of minutes by machine. A urine culture takes about 48 hours and will identify the bacterial organism and give the physician a list of the the proper antibiotics to use. ...Read more
Spreader: This motile bacteria will spread out across the surface of an agar plate and often obliterate the growth of other organisms which may be present. It ferments lactose and produces urease, releasing ammonia which make the area alkaline. If this happens in the urine due to infection it can result in kidney stones. ...Read more
