Survival of potentially pathogenic and pathogenic bacteria in certain kinds of Armenian peat



Survival of potentially pathogenic and pathogenic bacteria in certain kinds of Armenian peat



Izvest Akad Nauk Armyansk Ssr Biol Nauki 16(7): 27-34



The use of therapeutic mudpacks requires the absence of pathogens in the mud (peat). Fresh mud was infected with Escherichia coli, Bacillus pyocyaneous, Staphylococcus pyogenes aureus, Salmonella typhosa etc. Their rate of survival under various thermal and other conditions was studied. The gram-negative pathogens survived for long periods of time (28-38 and 64-68 days respectively). This period was much shorter for staphylococci (12-41 days). Mud from the pile shortened survival period for all pathogens; maintaining the temperature between 3-37[degree] was the main factor for accelerating their death. Streptococci died after 5-15, other groups after 15-32 days. The addition of organic matter (peptone, glucose and grass) also shortened the survival period. Use of sterilized mud lengthened it. The death of the bacteria is caused mainly by the saprophytic microflora of the mud and the antibiotic properties of its metabolic products. Weathering of the mud for 2-2 1/2 mo. is thus recommended at optimal temperatures of 30-37[degree], and the addition of organic matter to accelerate the destruction of pathogens.
