Quantitative assessment of normal soft-tissue elasticity using shear-wave ultrasound elastography.
TLDR
Elasticity values were determined for different tissues with shear-wave ultrasound elastography and further studies comparing the elasticity values of normal and pathologic tissues are necessary to determine the diagnostic role of this technique.
Molecular characterization of isoniazid and rifampin resistance of Mycobacterium tuberculosis clinical isolates from Malatya, Turkey.
TLDR
This study provided the first molecular characterization of INH and RIF resistance of M. tuberculosis clinical isolates from Eastern Turkey, and extended the knowledge of molecular basis ofM.
Platelet and mean platelet volume kinetics in adult patients with sepsis
TLDR
It is concluded that fungal sepsis has a stronger association with thrombocytopenia and increased MPV than Gram-positive and Gram-negative septic patients.
Molecular characterization of carbapenem- resistant Enterobacteriaceae yields increasing rates of NDM-1 carbapenemases and colistin resistance in an OXA-48- endemic area
TLDR
The presence of OXA-48 carbapenemases in the majority of isolates in a large collection of carbAPenemase-producing isolates from a single hospital is demonstrated and the relatively high rates of NDM-1- producing isolates and colistin resistance is noteworthy.
[Hepatitis C virus genotypes in a province of western Black-Sea region, Turkey].
TLDR
Evaluated the HCV genotype profiles of the patients with chronic hepatitis C in Zonguldak, providing the first data about HCVgenotypes from western Black-Sea region, Turkey, found genotype 1b was found to be the most prevalent genotype in patients from this region.
A first insight into the genetic diversity and population structure of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in Zonguldak, Turkey.
This study evaluated the molecular epidemiology and biodiversity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates in Zonguldak, Turkey, and investigated the presence and significance of the LAM7-TUR clone by
The optimization of a rapid pulsed-field gel electrophoresis protocol for the typing of Acinetobacter baumannii, Escherichia coli and Klebsiella spp.
TLDR
The optimized PFGE protocol for subtyping of Acinetobacter baumannii, Escherichia coli and Klebsiella spp.
Analysis of Three Outbreaks Due to Klebsiella Species in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
TLDR
Klebsiella outbreaks mainly affected premature neonates with intravenous catheters, mechanical ventilation, or both and Resistance to multiple antibiotics, but mainly to broad-spectrum beta-lactam antibiotics, was observed, particularly in K. pneumoniae isolates.
