Ureaplasma urealyticum (UUR) and Ureaplasma parvum (UPA) are sexually transmitted bacteria among humans implicated in a variety of disease states including but not limited to: nongonococcal urethritis, infertility, adverse pregnancy outcomes, chorioamnionitis, and bronchopulmonary dysplasia in neonates. There are 10 distinct serotypes of UUR and 4 of UPA.(More)

Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a common pathogen that causes upper and lower respiratory tract infections in people of all ages, responsible for up to 40 % of community-acquired pneumonias. It also causes a wide array of extrapulmonary infections and autoimmune phenomena. Phylogenetic studies of the organism have been generally restricted to specific genes or(More)
527 percentiles calculated. 2 Applying the BSAC formula 4 to pharmaco-kinetic data (C max of ∼3.2 mg/L following an oral dose of 250 mg with a terminal half-life of 7–8 h), an MIC susceptible breakpoint (BP) of 0.4 mg/L was calculated. MIC data were reviewed to ascertain the ABT-492 MIC ranges for the 'wild sensitive' populations. For Enterobacteriaceae, In(More)
Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a cell wall-less bacterial pathogen of the human respiratory tract that accounts for > 20% of all community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). At present the most effective means for detection and strain-typing is quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), which can exhibit excellent sensitivity and specificity but requires separate(More)
