An SIR epidemiological community-structured model is constructed to investigate the effects of clustered distributions of unvaccinated individuals and the distribution of the primary case relative to vaccination levels. The communities here represent groups such as neighborhoods within a city or cities within a region. The model contains two levels of(More)
Endophthalmitis, attributable to Actinomyces viscosus, developed in a 78-year-old man after cataract surgery. Postoperative endophthalmitis with this organism is a rare occurrence.

Clinafloxacin, levofloxacin, sparfloxacin and trovafloxacin were tested by Etest against 188 Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates. Clinafloxacin and trovafloxacin were 2-4-fold more potent than sparfloxacin and 8-fold more than levofloxacin. Two isolates, both serotype 6, with high-level quinolone resistance (> or = 8 micrograms/ml) were detected. The Etest is(More)
