The patient was treated with oxytetracycline and metronidazole (there was no history of recent use of either ampicillin or augmentin). The infected ulcer improved and six days later the Enterobacter cloacae could no longer be isolated. The strain was sensitive in vitro to tetracycline. This case shows that an augmentinresistant organism can be sensitive to(More)
The susceptibility of 3 laboratory strains of Aedes albopictus (Skuse) (Sanhsia [SH], Yungho [YH], Liyang [LY], and 1 strain of Culex tritaeniorhynchus Giles from northern and central Taiwan were compared for susceptibility to the MQ1-2 strain of Japanese encephalitis (JE) virus. The median infective dose (MID50) by intrathoracic inoculation was 0.23, 0.76,(More)
Brontispa longissima is one of the most serious insect pests of coconut in Southeast Asia; it was first discovered on Hainan Island in June 2002. Despite the economic risk associated with this pest, genetic aspects of the invasion process have remained relatively unexplored. Using microsatellite markers, we investigated the population structure, genetic(More)
The increasing incidence of recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) severely affects women's health. The involvement of the immune system during pregnancy and its contribution to RSA draw researchers' attention. Both Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) and chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 2 (CCL2) have been linked to various pregnancy disorders. In this study, we(More)
Ten microsatellite markers were isolated and characterized from Aleurodicus dispersus, the spiraling whitefly, an exotic pest species that is considered to be one of the most serious agricultural pests on Hainan Island, China. The polymorphism of these loci was examined in individual whiteflies from Hainan Island and from the Canary Islands. All loci(More)
