Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae are increasingly reported worldwide. The aim of the study was to determine the incidence and molecular epidemiology of carbapenemase-producing (CP) Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae (CP-E/K) in Belgium. Eleven hospital-based laboratories collected carbapenem non-susceptible (CNS) isolates of E. coli and K.(More)
An acellular pertussis vaccine which contains highly purified pertussis toxoid (PT) and filamentous haemagglutinin (FHA) has been developed. These proteins have been shown to be stable, with essentially no significant reversion of the pertussis toxoid after a new detoxification procedure. Two clinical trials using this vaccine as a booster in 45 healthy(More)
In this review, we discuss aspects of the prenatal diagnosis of fetal skeletal malformations, concentrating on the advantages offered by different imaging techniques and the approaches that are of value in evaluating a suspected skeletal dysplasia. We also briefly address the findings in some of the commoner malformations of the fetal skeleton that may be(More)
