We report the results of an International Nosocomial Infection Control Consortium (INICC) surveillance study from January 2007-December 2012 in 503 intensive care units (ICUs) in Latin America, Asia, Africa, and Europe. During the 6-year study using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) U.S. National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN)(More)
Several diagnostic methods for the evaluation and monitoring were used to find out the pro-inflammatory status, as well as incidence of sepsis in critically ill patients. One such recent method is based on investigating the genetic polymorphisms and determining the molecular and genetic links between them, as well as other sepsis-associated(More)
BACKGROUND We report the results of International Nosocomial Infection Control Consortium (INICC) surveillance study from January 2010-December 2015 in 703 intensive care units (ICUs) in Latin America, Europe, Eastern Mediterranean, Southeast Asia, and Western Pacific. METHODS During the 6-year study period, using Centers for Disease Control and(More)
Critical polytrauma patients present a series of pathophysiological disturbances, biochemical and molecular dysfunction, which comprise to be the major cause of intensive care unit admission. In regard to molecular damage, there exists a series of factors, which all together contribute to the aggravation of the clinical status leading to increased mortality(More)
A high percentage of critical patients are found to develop acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Several studies have reported high mortality rates in these cases which are most frequently associated with multiple organ dysfunctions syndrome. Lately, many efforts have been made to evaluate and monitor ARDS in critical patients. In this regard, the(More)
http://www.revistadechimie.ro 131 The genus Salvia is one of the largest among the Labiatae genera; it includes over 900 species and has an almost cosmopolitan distribution. Salvia officinalis L. or Dalmatian sage is a perennial low shrub which is native of the western part of the Balkan Peninsula [1]. In Romania, the Salvia genus contains 15 species(More)
BACKGROUND The critically ill polytrauma patient, apart from the primary, traumatic injuries and the secondary, port-traumatic injuries, presents with a series of molecular disasters. Dysfunctions of the biochemical pathways and molecular damage add to the worsening of the clinical status of these patients, one of the most well-known molecular phenomena(More)
INTRODUCTION The Acinetobacter species are ubiquitary germs isolated more and more frequently, Acinetobacter baumannii being currently considered the second strictly aerobic microorganism involved in the ethiology of severe nosocomial infections. Acinetobacter baumannii is usually encountered in surgery and intensive care units, especially in patients with(More)
p16÷Ki-67 dual-stained cytology, either alone or combined with human papillomavirus (HPV) 16÷18 genotyping, could be a useful tool for triage for colposcopy of HPV-positive patients. Based on this background, we aimed at comparing the diagnostic performance of the p16÷Ki-67 dual staining test, and high-risk HPV test for the detection of high-risk cervical(More)
OBJECTIVES Our aim is to comparatively study the susceptibility to antibiotics of Enterococcus spp. strains isolated from urocultures of patients admitted in the urology department, as well as from ambulatory patients, and also to establish the resistance phenotypes of these strains. MATERIALS AND METHODS We studied 33 strains of Enterococcus spp.: 10(More)
