SUMMARY RegaDB is a free and open source data management and analysis environment for infectious diseases. RegaDB allows clinicians to store, manage and analyse patient data, including viral genetic sequences. Moreover, RegaDB provides researchers with a mechanism to collect data in a uniform format and offers them a canvas to make newly developed… (More)
BACKGROUND Current real-time PCR-based HIV-1 viral load (VL) assays allow the detection of residual viraemia in antiretroviral-treated patients. The clinical outcome of HIV1 patients experiencing low-level replication (<50 cop/mL) in comparison with fully suppressed patients is currently debated. We analysed variability of 3 VL assays <50 cop/mL, and… (More)
We report the first documented case of Yersinia ruckeri isolated from a wound infection, in a 16-year-old male after hitting a stone while paddling in a river.
Macrolides Fluoroquinolones Community-acquired pneumonia Serotyping Vaccine EUCAST CLSI Breakpoints a b s t r a c t We assessed the in vitro susceptibility of Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates from patients with confirmed community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) to ␤-lactams, macrolides and fluoroquinolones and the association of non-susceptibility and resistance… (More)

In approximately 10% of newly diagnosed individuals in Europe, HIV-1 variants harboring transmitted drug resistance mutations (TDRM) are detected. For some TDRM it has been shown that they revert to wild type while other mutations persist in the absence of therapy. To understand the mechanisms explaining persistence we investigated the in vivo evolution of… (More)
An atypical pneumonia in a renal transplant patient We report the case of a 27-year-old man who suffered from end-stage renal disease secondary to medullary cys-tic kidney disease and who received a kidney transplant in November 2007. The post-transplant immunosuppressive regimen consisted of methylprednisolone, tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil. One… (More)
