Prosthetic joint infection: when can prosthesis salvage be considered?
Because debridement with retention of the prosthesis rarely enables control of PJI, this therapeutic approach should be considered only when the duration of symptoms is very short. Expand
Low dosage and long treatment duration of beta-lactam: risk factors for carriage of penicillin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae.
It is suggested that a low daily dose and a long duration of treatment with an oral beta-lactam contribute to the selective pressure in promoting pharyngeal carriage of penicillin-resistant S pneumoniae. Expand
A Model for Haptic Aesthetic Processing and Its Implications for Design
The paper develops a functional model of haptic aesthetics, which is explained step by step and assumes a continuous increase of elaborative processing through three subsequent processing stages beginning with low-level perceptual analyses that encompass an initial, unspecific exploration of the haptic material.

Toxoplasma gondii infection in advanced HIV infection
The high HIV incidence, morbidity and mortality in high-prevalence areas suggests that primary prophylaxis should be given in patients at high risk for toxoplasmic reactivation, and TE was predictive of death. Expand
A new model of experimental prosthetic joint infection due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus: a microbiologic, histopathologic, and magnetic resonance imaging characterization.
This model produces a prosthetic infection that is reproducible and close to that of human prosthetic infections, and gross pathology and histopathologic changes were characteristic of joint and bone infection. Expand
Use of a new mouse model of Acinetobacter baumannii pneumonia to evaluate the postantibiotic effect of imipenem.
The presence of a prolonged in vivo PAE supports the currently recommended dosing intervals of imipenem for the treatment of human infections due to A. baumannii pneumonia and studies the pharmacodynamic properties of various antibiotics. Expand
Activity of LY333328 Combined with Gentamicin In Vitro and in Rabbit Experimental Endocarditis Due to Vancomycin-Susceptible or -Resistant Enterococcus faecalis
It is concluded that the LY333328-gentamicin combination might be of interest for the treatment of enterococcal infections, particularly against VanA-type strains. Expand
Community-acquired pneumonia. Importance of initial noninvasive bacteriologic and radiographic investigations.
A pragmatic strategy of initial management of community-acquired pneumonia is proposed on the basis of results found that alveolar densities were associated with a bacterial infection in 90 percent of the cases of known etiology. Expand
Production, characterization, and antibody specificity of a mouse monoclonal antibody reactive with Cryptococcus neoformans capsular polysaccharide.
Two monoclonal immunoglobulin G1 antibodies reacting with Cryptococcus neoformans capsular polysaccharide (CNPS) were produced in mice by using a carefully defined procedure for immunization withExpand
Monotherapy with a Broad-Spectrum Beta-Lactam Is as Effective as Its Combination with an Aminoglycoside in Treatment of Severe Generalized Peritonitis: a Multicenter Randomized Controlled Trial
In conclusion, the addition of AMK to TAZ does not seem to be necessary for the treatment of SGP, even after adjustment for the simplified acute physiology score (SAPS II) and type of S GP. Expand
