A total of 60 Salmonella enterica serovar (ser.) Enteritidis isolates, 28 from poultry houses and 32 from clinical samples, were isolated during 2010. These isolates were subjected to testing and analyzed for antibiotic resistance, virulence genes, plasmids and plasmid replicon types. To assess genetic diversity, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE)(More)
Various 2-aminothiazole and 2-aminothiadiazole derivatives viz N-[4-(2-Chloro-4-fluoro-phenyl)-thiazol-2-yl]-2-substituted acetamides (3a, 4a, 5a) and N-[5-(4-substituted aryl)-[1,3,4]thiadiazol-2-yl]-2-acetamides (3b, 3c, 4b, 4c, 5b, 5c) were synthesized from their corresponding properly substituted 2-aminothiazoles and 2-aminothiadiazoles.

Ocular injuries caused by deploying airbags are well-described in the literature and can be either mechanical or chemical in nature. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report describing an isolated paracentral scotoma noted immediately after an airbag injury. The use of optical coherence tomography revealed an anatomical correlate of the scotoma.(More)
AIMS The primary aim of this retrospective study was to determine the proportion of patients with myocardial infarction (MI) who fulfil the criteria of the Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial (MADIT) II and the implications of MADIT II criteria in practice. METHODS We performed a retrospective analysis of three hundred and ninety four(More)
Classification of a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-metabolizing bacterium, Mycobacterium sp. strain PYR-1, as Mycobacterium vanbaalenii sp. nov. A polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-utilizing Mycobacterium strain, PYR-1 T , was isolated from petroleum-contaminated estuarine sediments and has been shown by 16S rRNA gene sequencing to be closely related(More)
