BACKGROUND Little is known about factors associated with carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae infections in pediatric patients, who are initally colonized with carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective case-control study was conducted involving pediatric and neonatal intensive care units throughout a five-year(More)
Polymer composites consisted of small hydrophilic pockets homogeneously dispersed in a hydrophobic polymer matrix are important in many applications where controlled release of the functional agent from the hydrophilic phase is needed. As an example, a release of biomolecules or drugs from therapeutic formulations or release of salt in anti-icing(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to determine the frequency of vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) infection occurrence in previously VRE-colonized children in a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and to identify associated risk factors. METHODS Infection control nurses have performed prospective surveillance of health care-associated infections and rectal VRE(More)
