BACKGROUND Nosocomial infection caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) is very common, despite the application of various preventive measures in intensive care units (ICUs) leading to increased morbidity, mortality, prolonged hospital stay, and increased treatment cost. AIM The aim of the present study is to identify the source of P. aeruginosa(More)
Widespread emergence of multidrug resistant (MDR) bacterial pathogens is a problem of global dimension. MDR infections are difficult to treat and frequently associated with high mortality. More than one antibiotic is commonly used to treat such infections, but scientific evidence does not favor use of combination therapy in most cases. However, there are(More)

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) contributes substantially to mortality and morbidity in USA and worldwide. Due to limitations in early diagnostics of ARDS by classical methods, there has been need for discovery of novel methods and biomarkers for its characterization. We present here first high-resolution 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)(More)
