Relationship between Vancomycin MIC and Failure among Patients with Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Bacteremia Treated with Vancomycin
ABSTRACT There is growing concern that vancomycin has diminished activity for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections, with vancomycin MICs at the high end of the CLSIExpand

Alterations in ornithine decarboxylase characteristics account for tolerance of Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense to D,L-alpha-difluoromethylornithine.
Ornithine decarboxylase (ODC), the target enzyme of D,L-alpha-difluoromethylornithine (DFMO), was investigated in four DFMO-tolerant Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense isolates from East Africa and twoExpand

Mammalian Rrn3 is required for the formation of a transcription competent preinitiation complex containing RNA polymerase I.
Mammalian Rrn3, an essential, polymerase-associated protein, is inactivated when cells are treated with cycloheximide, resulting in the inhibition of transcription by RNA polymerase I. Although Rrn3Expand

Survey of Plasmid-Associated Genetic Markers in Enterobacteriaceae with Reduced Susceptibilities to Cephalosporins
ABSTRACT Clinical isolates of Enterobacteriaceae with reduced susceptibilities to cephalosporins were collected from 1993 to 2000. The organisms were screened for the extended-spectrum β-lactamaseExpand
