A premature infant in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) developed a bloodstream infection caused by coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) sensitive to vancomycin. The infection persisted for 3 weeks, despite therapy with vancomycin and replacement of all intravenous catheters. The neonate died due to necrotizing enterocolitis which developed during(More)
Non-Candida albicans Candida species are increasingly being isolated. These species show differences in levels of resistance to antimycotic agents and mortality. Therefore, it is important to be able to correctly identify the causative organism to the species level. Identification of C. dubliniensis in particular remains problematic due to the high degree(More)
Mycobacterium marinum causes a systemic tuberculosis-like disease in a large number of poikilothermic animals and is used as a model for mycobacterial pathogenesis. In the present study, we infected zebra fish (Danio rerio) with different strains of M. marinum to determine the variation in pathogenicity. Depending on the M. marinum isolate, the fish(More)
The amplified enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (a-ELISA) has been successfully applied to the measurement of allergen-specific IgE and IgG antibodies. Data presented indicate a high positive correlation among measurements of IgE-specific antibodies to ragweed antigen E using the a-ELISA, RAST and radiometric assay of Zeiss. Similarly, a high correlation(More)
Bacteria were isolated from an industrial water circuit in the Netherlands. These strains were identified using API 20 NE as possible, or likely, Burkholderia pseudomallei. With VITEK 2 some of these strains scored 'low discrimination' for Francisella tularensis, amongst others. A total of twenty-six strains were assigned to the species Pseudomonas(More)
