Iron acquisition is a virulence factor for Staphylococcus aureus. We assessed the efficacy of the iron chelator, deferasirox (Def), alone or in combination with vancomycin (Van) against two methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) strains in vitro and in a murine bacteremia model. In vitro time–kill assays were carried out against MRSA or(More)

We compared two cases of DS with APOE ε3/3 genotypes, a similar age at death, and comparable amyloid-beta 42 peptide (Aβ42) burdens in the brain but that differed markedly in the severity of AD-like(More)
