Recently several cases and epidemics of tularemia have been reported in the(More)
In order to study the prevalence and etiology of subclinical mastitis a bacteriological survey on 16 Awassi dairy sheep flocks in southern Turkey was conducted. A total of 1458 milk samples from 729 Awassi ewes in mid-lactation were tested with the California mastitis test (CMT). Samples from 170 (11.7%) glands and 135 (18.5%) sheep had positive CMT(More)
Serratia ficaria was first described in 1979 as a Gram-negative facultative anaerobic rod. S. ficaria was found in figs, but also isolated from human specimens in a few cases. We now report an isolate of S. ficaria from sputum specimen.A 46-year-old man was suffering from a chronic renal failure of five years, four months of peritoneal dialysis and one week(More)
Duckweed (Lemna minor L. Lemnaceae) is a widespread, free-floating aquatic macrophyte, a source of food for waterfowl and a shelter for small aquatic invertebrates. It grows quickly and reproduces faster than other vascular plants. The objective of this study was to determine the antioxidant, antiradical, antimicrobial, and anticandidal activities of(More)
BACKGROUND DATA In vivo and in vitro studies have reported that laser energy in differing wavelengths and irradiation regimes has a potential bactericidal effect on Staphylococcus aureus. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a light wavelength of 808  nm in varying doses has an effect on chronic osteomyelitis induced(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of tigecycline-impregnated hydroxyapatite in the local treatment of chronic osteomyelitis experimentally induced in rat tibias with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. STUDY DESIGN Monocortical defects were established in the left tibias of 32 adult Wistar albino rats. Five rats were(More)
Infections with Pseudomonas aeruginosa have high morbidity and mortality rates. Quick and efficient antibiotherapy can reduce these infections effectively. The aim of this study is to detect the antibiotic susceptibility pattern of P. aeruginosa isolated from various clinical specimens in Sulaimani Teaching Hospital, Iraq. This study was conducted during(More)
An automated blood culture system (BACTEC 9240) was used for the isolation of aerobic bacteria from the blood of septicaemic neonatal calves. Blood samples were collected from 90 clinically septicaemic and 20 healthy neonatal calves and inoculated into blood culture bottles. There were 89 significant isolates from 90 positive blood cultures using the BACTEC(More)
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common bacterial infections in different ages which cause acute and chronic morbidity such as hypertension and chronic kidney disease.
