Incidence and Characteristics of
Increases in both hospital-acquired and community-onset methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) infections have prompted many neonatal intensive care
Vaccine health beliefs and educational influences among pediatric residents.
This study identifies important gaps in medical education, with pediatric residents reporting limitations in their professional experience with vaccine preventable diseases and high rates of observing alternative vaccination practice. Expand
Congenital lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus: an underdiagnosed cause of neonatal hydrocephalus.
This is the first report of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus isolation in the cerebrospinal fluid of a congenitally infected infant. Expand
Massive hemorrhage into an adrenal pheochromocytoma.
IRREVERSIBLE shock and sudden death due to massive unilateral adrenal hemorrhage without sepsis is a unique, often unrecognized syndrome, death usually being ascribed to some other catastrophicExpand
Characteristics of Severe Bordetella pertussis Infection Among Infants ≤90 Days of Age Admitted to Pediatric Intensive Care Units - Southern California, September 2009-June 2011.
Identifying higher-risk infants earlier might allow for more rapid implementation of interventions, and identify higher- risk infants with more severe pertussis more rapidly after cough onset. Expand
Improvement of hepatitis B vaccine by the use of a new adjuvant.
The use of SAF increased and made more consistent the antibody responses in young mice and in strains of mice with inherited low responses to HBsAg, and if SAF proves acceptable for human use it could improve vaccines against hepatitis B virus. Expand
Exchange Blood Transfusion in the Management of Severe Pertussis in Young Infants
Data from young infants who received exchange blood transfusions for management of severe pertussis indicate that if the procedure is to be successful, it should be done before organ failure has occurred and immediately if shock/hypotension occur. Expand
An Observational Study of Severe Pertussis in 100 Infants ⩽120 Days of Age
Perform serial white blood cell counts, treat all presumptive cases with azithromycin, evaluate for pulmonary hypertension, intubate and administer oxygen for apneic episodes and administer inotropic/vasoactive agents for cardiogenic shock. Expand

This is the first reported case to the authors' knowledge of successful use of maternal ganciclovir to treat intrauterine CMV infection in a pregnant renal transplant recipient and the delivery of a healthy newborn girl. Expand
Biology and therapeutic uses of myeloid hematopoietic growth factors and interferons.
Advances in clinical applications of IFNs and hematopoietic growth factors serve as a paradigm for further development to investigate the use of other important cytokines in modern therapeutics. Expand
