Use of the Polymerase Chain Reaction for Rapid Detection of High-Level Mupirocin Resistance in Staphylococci
Abstract The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of mupirocin were determined by the E test (AB Biodisk, Sweden) and the agar dilution method for 107 staphylococci. The organisms consisted of 34Expand

A comparison of radioprotection from three neutron sources and 60Co by WR-2721 and WR-151327.
Two thiophosphoroate radiation protectors (WR-2721 and WR-151327) were assessed for their ability to modify the effects of neutron or gamma irradiation on the gastrointestinal tract. Three neutronExpand

Effect of chemical protectors on the response of the intestine to roentgen or fission neutron irradiation.
The monosodium salt S-1-(2-hydroxy-3-amino) propylphosphorothioic acid (WR-77913) and S-2-amino ethylisothiuronium-Br-HBr (AET) were tested for protective effects against 4 MeV roentgen irradiationExpand

Alterations in immune function in rats caused by dietary lipotrope deficiency: effect of age.
Weanling male Sprague-Dawley rats were maintained on a control (C), folacin-deficient (F) or marginal methionine-choline diet (M/C) for 3 weeks, 3 months or 12 months. The immunocompetence of theExpand
