A new chromogenic medium, denim blue (DB), was compared with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) Select (MRSAS) for detection of MRSA from surveillance specimens. On DB, MRSA colonies are larger (0.57-0.8 versus 0.45-0.6 mm at 18 and 24 h, respectively). Despite this, sensitivities of DB were 77% and 96% at 18 and 24 h, respectively, and(More)
MRSASelect agar was compared to CHROMagar, mannitol-salt agar with oxacillin, and mannitol-salt agar with cefoxitin (MSA-CFOX) for the isolation of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The sensitivities and specificities were 97.3% and 99.8%, 82.9% and 99.1%, 80.2% and 79%, and 99.1% and 84.8%, respectively. MSA-CFOX and MRSASelect had a high(More)

Lewy body dementia is common. It presents either with cognitive impairment and neuropsychiatric disturbance followed by parkinsonism or as dementia complicating established Parkinson's disease. It is unusual both in its pathological features and in its clinical manifestations. Although both overlap to some extent with those of Alzheimer's disease, Lewy body(More)
The neurologist is often faced with a patient requiring immune modulating therapy. The decision on whether or not to initiate a particular therapy requires an analysis of the possible positive and negative consequences of the medication, as well as cost. The commonest class of agents used are corticosteroids such as prednisolone. Whilst generally very(More)
