It was recently reported that Streptococcus iniae, a bacterial pathogen of aquatic animals, can cause serious disease in humans. Using the chaperonin 60 (Cpn60) gene identification method with reverse checkerboard hybridization and chemiluminescent detection, we identified correctly each of 12 S. iniae samples among 34 aerobic gram-positive isolates from(More)
Data from four recent studies (S. H. Goh et al., J. Clin. Microbiol. 36:2164-2166, 1998; S. H. Goh et al., J. Clin. Microbiol. 34:818-823, 1996; S. H. Goh et al., J. Clin. Microbiol. 35:3116-3121, 1997; A. Y. C. Kwok et al., Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol. 49:1181-1192, 1999) suggest that an approximately 600-bp region of the chaperonin 60 (Cpn60) gene, amplified(More)
Management of sexually transmitted diseases is facilitated by having antimicrobial agents with activity against all of the major genital pathogens. Newer quinolones show promise of being active against Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Chlamydia trachomatis. Two quinolones, difloxacin (A-56619) and A-56620, and an oral cephalosporin, cefixime (CL 284,635; FK 027),(More)
In vitro Ro 15-8074 and Ro 19-5247 (T2525), two new oral cephalosporins, were active against 410 penicillin-susceptible and -resistant isolates of Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Two new macrolides, A-56268 and to a lesser extent roxithromycin (RU 28965), were active against Chlamydia trachomatis. A-56268 had activity against N. gonorrhoeae similar to that of(More)
Consecutive isolates of Neisseria gonorrhoeae obtained at a sexually transmitted disease clinic in Vancouver between June 1982 and June 1984 were tested for in-vitro susceptibility to eight antimicrobial agents. Of the 400 isolates 6 (1.5%) were penicillinase-producing N. gonorrhoeae, and for 25 (6.2%) the minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of(More)
This work reports the long sought crystal structures of the title members of the intriguing series of 3d transition metal dichloride monohydrates. The double chain structure which results from rearrangement of the well-known pseudo-octahedral coordination geometry and single chains in the corresponding metal chloride dihydrate is extremely unusual.(More)
As a complement to Pd(0)-catalyzed cyclizations, seven Pd(II)-catalyzed cyclization strategies are reported. α,ω-Diynes are selectively hydroborated to bis(boronate esters), which cyclize under Pd(II)-catalysis producing a diverse array of small, medium, and macrocyclic polyenes with controlled E,E, Z,Z, or E,Z stereochemistry. Various functional groups are(More)
