BACKGROUND Up to 10% of patients who develop a nosocomial blood stream infection (BSI) in the hospital have an underlying malignancy. The treatment of infections in patients with malignancy often relies on the use of established guidelines along with the consideration of the local microbiology and antibiotic sensitivity patterns of possible etiologic(More)
BACKGROUND Infection is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in cancer patients. In most of these cases empirical treatment is provided because the focus of infection is not identified. Empiric antibiotics provided to these patients are based on isolates, sensitivity, and on guidelines. Here we have compared three antibiotics recommended as empirical(More)
Due to the enormous increase inimage database sizes, as well as its vast deployment in various applications, many Content Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) systems have been developed. The challenge, however, is in designing a system with the ability to retrieve best matches in case of having all kind of images as query. The power of such system highly depends(More)
BACKGROUND Infection is a common cause of mortality and morbidity in cancer patients. Organisms are becoming resistant to antibiotics; age appears to be one of the factors responsible. We analyzed common organisms and their antibiotic sensitivity pattern in the correlation with age. METHODS This is a single institutional, retrospective analysis of all(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with cancer are predisposed to infections. Antimicrobial patterns and antibiotic sensitivity change with increasing age, making choice of empirical therapy more complicated. MATERIALS AND METHODS This single-center study aims to try and assess the influence of age on microbiology and antibiotic sensitivity of organisms causing(More)
