Colistin use in pediatric intensive care unit for severe nosocomial infections: experience of an university hospital
TLDR
Colistin therapy was found to be acceptable treatment option for the severe pediatric nosocomial infections caused by multi-drug resistant bacteria, however, the use of concomitant nephrotoxic drugs with colistin must be avoided and renal function test should be closely monitored.
Old agent, new experience: colistin use in the paediatric Intensive Care Unit--a multicentre study.
TLDR
It is suggested that colistin is effective in the treatment of severe nosocomial infections caused by MDR Gram-negative bacteria and is generally well tolerated by patients, even after relatively long-term use.
Comparison of a real-time polymerase chain reaction-based system and Erlich-Ziehl-Neelsen method with culture in the identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
TLDR
It is suggested that GeneXpert MTB/RIF is a rapid and reliable system, and when used in company with conventional tests, it would make significant contributions to the diagnosis of tuberculosis.
Can Serum Surfactant Protein D Levels be used as an Effective Factor Instead of Clinical Severity Scores of Pneumonia in Pediatric Emergency Departments
TLDR
Although serum SP-D has limited efficacy in differentiating bacterial and viral pneumonia with respect to CAP in children, it can be used as an effective bioindicator for determining the clinical severity of the disease in emergency services.
Results from the Survey of Antibiotic Resistance (SOAR) 2011-13 in Turkey.
TLDR
Overall, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid and levofloxacin were the most active antibiotics based on all three breakpoints against these pathogens and high resistance rates were found in S. pyogenes and other respiratory pathogens.
Acinetobacter species isolated from various clinical specimens between 2006-2011 years and their susceptibilities against antibiotics
TLDR
No significant changes were observed in ampicillin-sulbactam resistance ratios and the resistance ratios to tigecycline and colistin were determined as 5.9% and 0.2% respectively.
The evaluation of serum surfactant protein D (SP-D) levels as a biomarker of lung injury in tuberculosis and different lung diseases.
TLDR
Serum SP-D levels were associated with pulmonary injury scores in patients with pneumonia, severity of COPD attack, and the extent of radiological lung involvement in Patients with pneumonia and TB.
In vitro antimicrobial activity of Medilox® super-oxidized water
TLDR
Medilox® super-oxidized water is a broad spectrum, on-site producible disinfectant, which is effective on bacteria and fungi and can be used for the control of nosocomial infection.
An ınvestigation into the in-vitro effectiveness of electrolyzed water against various microorganisms.
TLDR
1/1, 1/2, and 1/10 concentrations of Envirolyte® electrolyzed water were found to be effective on the bacteria that lead to hospital infections used during all test times.
[Evaluation of materials sent due to suspected cystic echinococcosis to the parasitology laboratory of Ondokuz Mayıs University Medical School between the Years 2005-2011].
TLDR
Using these two tests together for serologic detection of cystic echinococcosis could be recommended because of the high sensitivity and specificity ratios.
