A 12-year-old Congolese girl presented with acute renal failure, edema, hypertension, hemoptysis, hematuria, and proteinuria after a history of throat infection. Renal ultrasound showed kidneys of normal size, with increased echogenicity of the cortical parenchyma and decreased corticomedullary differentiation. Other additional investigations showed(More)
High intra-patient variability in TCL exposure is a risk factor for allograft loss and late acute rejection. We hypothesized that a higher intra-patient variability leads to a faster decline in GFR in pediatric renal transplant patients and that adolescents have a higher intra-patient variability due to poorer adherence. We included 69 children aged 3.5-18(More)
A method for rapid screening of isolates of pathogenic members of the family Enterobacteriaceae is described. Flow charts are used in conjunction with triple sugar iron agar, o-nitrophenyl-beta-D-galactopyranoside-phenylalanine-motility sulfate screening media, oxidase test, and six rapid biochemical tests, namely, lysine decarboxylase, urease, indole,(More)
A simple (2% oxgall) agar medium is described for the production of both germ tubes and chlamydospores by over 500 clinical isolates of Candida albicans. In comparison studies between the 2% oxgall agar and the more complex "cream of rice" infusion-oxgall-Tween 80 agar (RIOT), germ tubes were formed by 478 isolates in both media, by 9 isolates in only the(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to analyze the incidence of hypertension in pediatric liver transplantation (LT) recipients using ambulatory blood pressure measurements (ABPM) and to identify factors associated with hypertension. We also investigated whether hypertension or tacrolimus predose concentration (TAC C0) was associated with increased left(More)
A rapid carbohydrate utilization procedure for the confirmation of Neisseria gonorrhoeae and identification of other Neisseria species has been developed. This method utilizes both preformed enzymes, introduced in a heavy inoculum, and enzymes formed by the microorganisms as a result of growth in a small volume of super-enriched medium. Expected(More)
