Daptomycin non-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus was rarely encountered at our medical centre until 2010, when 10 isolates (0.4% of S. aureus) were confirmed by E-test as non-susceptible.

BACKGROUND Empiric therapy of inpatient skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) generally require methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) coverage. Limited data are available to directly compare the effect of initial antibiotic choice on treatment outcomes and length of stay (LOS).

We focus on the detection of Low Rate Denial of Service Attacks (LR DoS) based on their spectral properties. We revised the Fisher g-statistic test and Siegel test for detection of LR DoS attacks such as Shrew and New Shrew attacks. Our results reveal that these attacks can be effectively identified by using Fisher gstatistic test for one dominant(More)
