BACKGROUND We estimated the effect of remote BCG vaccination on tuberculin reactivity and the booster effect among hospital employees. METHODS Cross-sectional survey at a university hospital. All personnel employed during a 24-month period were included in the study. Employees were administered 2-step tuberculin testing, and BCG vaccination scars were(More)
In recent years, Aeromonas species has been reported to cause extraintestinal infections with a growing frequency. Meningitis due to Aeromonas species is, however, a rare entity. We report a case of aeromonas meningitis in a 54-year-old man with a history of chronic alcoholic liver disease who, after an episode of gastroenteritis, developed an acute(More)
 To evaluate the invasiveness of ciprofloxacin-resistant Escherichia coli isolated from the urinary tract, the susceptibility to ciprofloxacin of Escherichia coli strains from patients with invasive urinary tract infection was compared with that of isolates from patients with noninvasive disease. In a 14-month period, 2054 different isolates of Escherichia(More)
Direct latex agglutination testing of selective broth medium for the detection of group B streptococci was evaluated. Results were compared with those obtained by the recommended subculture method. Among the 551 vaginal-rectal specimens tested, 101 (18.3%) were positive by the subculture method. Of these subcultures, latex agglutination testing detected 99(More)
The incidence of MRSA infections in Spain had remained in a low level through the years, being MRSA usually less than 1.5% of all S. aureus isolates. Since October 1988, we have detected in our hospital a MRSA outbreak. The epidemic started in the surgical wards, and spread through the rest of the institution. The incidence of cases was higher in the ICU's,(More)
In 2002, an innovative neutron time-of-flight facility started operation at CERN: n_TOF. The main characteristics that make the new facility unique are the high instantaneous neutron flux, high resolution and wide energy range. Combined with state-of-the-art detectors and data acquisition system, these features have allowed to collect high accuracy neutron(More)
We report the largest study on the prevalence and distribution of HCV genotypes in Spain (2000-2015), and we relate them with clinical, epidemiological and virological factors. Patients from 29 hospitals in 10 autonomous communities (Andalusia, Aragon, Castilla-Leon, Catalonia, Galicia, Canary Islands, Madrid Community, Valencian Community, Murcia Region(More)
The energy-dependent cross section of the ^{7}Be(n,α)^{4}He reaction, of interest for the so-called cosmological lithium problem in big bang nucleosynthesis, has been measured for the first time from 10 meV to 10 keV neutron energy. The challenges posed by the short half-life of ^{7}Be and by the low reaction cross section have been overcome at n_TOF thanks(More)
