The limitation of the ABAC system for the automated antibiotic sensitivity test is the fixed number of antibiotics to be assayed. This limit is partially overcome by the up-dating of ABAC disposables necessary both for bacterial infectious pathology (considerably various and dinamic) and bacterial resistance to antibiotics. Accordingly, research is(More)
Background and aim Barriers of communication play a crucial role in underestimating the disability induced by the headache disorders. Art is at its essence “a tool for creating empathy among human beings”. ARTe Cluster is a project of Alleanza Cefalalgici Cluster aimed to collect artistic material to be used for promoting the activities of the association(More)
A new rotor for the ABAC system has been investigated that allows the main enterobacteria of urinary source to be identified (this is performed manually) and simultaneously the relative antibiogram (this is automatically carried out). The precision of this identification has been shown using control strains previously identified by three miniaturized kits:(More)
In this work we carry out an epidemiologic investigation of the incidence of Staphylococci in some hospitals of east Sicily, in relation with hospitalized patients. The tests were performed every ten days for a period of four months, by using Fisher technique. The strains were isolated from clinical specimens from hospitalized patients, and after(More)
ABAC- IDENTIBIOGRAMMA II is a new system allowing the carry out of antimicrobial susceptibility testing on various bacterial groups and also the fully automatic simultaneous susceptibility testing and identification of Gram-negative bacilli (urinary and not). Particularly most species of Enterobacteriaceae and Aeromonas hydrophila, Acinetobacter sp.,(More)
The authors carried out a study to evaluate the epidemiology and resistance of netilmicin, gentamicin, tobramycin and amikacin during the 1984-1985 period. Clinical specimens of different origin, drawn both from hospitalized and outpatients were used in the study. The strains were tested for their sensitivity to aminoglycosides. In particular the degree of(More)
Background Due to the extraordinary severity of pain, cluster headache (CH) warrants rapid diagnosis and appropriate treatment. The diagnosis of CH is simple, and rapid and effective treatments exist (injective sumatriptan and oxygen). In spite of this, clinical data have documented that CH is largely under-diagnosed and under-treated and it is common(More)
A multicentric study of clinical Staphylococcus isolates was performed by seven operative units working in different areas of Italy. Over a 6-month period, a total of 3,226 staphylococci, isolated from in- and outpatients, were identified and tested for antimicrobial susceptibility by a protocol agreed upon by all units. On the basis of their(More)
