Antimicrobial resistance in Cairo, Egypt 1999-2000: a survey of five hospitals.
TLDR
Resistance to most relevant antimicrobials was commonplace among the Gram-negative bacilli; however, most remained susceptible to imipenem, calling for a nationwide surveillance programme to monitor microbial trends and antimicrobial resistance patterns in Egypt.
North American Paragonimiasis (Caused by Paragonimus kellicotti) in the Context of Global Paragonimiasis

    Clinical Microbiology Reviews
  • 1 July 2009
TLDR
The biologic, clinical, radiologic, and laboratory features of paragonsimiasis are reviewed, with emphasis on North American paragonimiasis whenever possible.
Molecular diagnostics of infectious diseases.
TLDR
The detection of infectious agents at the nucleic acid level represents a true synthesis of clinical chemistry and clinical microbiology techniques.
Endogenous Endophthalmitis: An 18-Year Review of Culture-Positive Cases at a Tertiary Care Center
TLDR
A retrospective chart review of all patients seen at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation with infectious endogenous endophthalmitis between January 1982 and August 2000 revealed 34 affected eyes in 27 patients, and good visual outcome was associated with visual acuity of 20/200 or better at diagnosis and with the absence of hypopyon.
Association of Use of Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors and Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers With Testing Positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
TLDR
Clinical data support current professional society guidelines to not discontinue ACEIs or ARBs in the setting of the COVID-19 pandemic, and overlap propensity score weighting showed no significant association of ACEI and/or ARB use with CO VID-19 test positivity.
Histologic features of zygomycosis: emphasis on perineural invasion and fungal morphology.
TLDR
The fungal morphology and histopathologic findings in biopsies from patients with zygomycotic disease are described, with emphasis on preferential sites of fungal growth.
Multicenter Evaluation of the Vitek MS Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization–Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry System for Identification of Gram-Positive Aerobic Bacteria
TLDR
The findings demonstrate that the Vitek MS system is highly accurate for the identification of Gram-positive aerobic bacteria in the clinical laboratory setting.

    Clinical infectious diseases : an official…
  • 1 September 2007
TLDR
Many methods of postamplification analysis afford the simultaneous detection and differentiation of numerous microbial pathogens, their mechanisms of resistance, and the construction of disease-specific assays, which should have an impact on resistance patterns.
Multicenter Comparison of the VITEK 2 Antifungal Susceptibility Test with the CLSI Broth Microdilution Reference Method for Testing Amphotericin B, Flucytosine, and Voriconazole against Candida spp
TLDR
The VITEK 2 system reliably detected flucytosine and voriconazole resistance among Candida spp.
Antimicrobial susceptibility of Abiotrophia adiacens and Abiotrophia defectiva.
TLDR
The susceptibilities of Abiotrophia adiacens and A. defectiva isolates were tested by microdilution in pyridoxal hydrochloride and lysed horse blood supplemented Mueller-Hinton broth according to NCCLS interpretative criteria for Streptococcus pneumoniae.
