The emergence of heterogeneous populations of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) causes major problems in routine screening for MRSA. In heterogeneous MRSA populations, a proportion of bacterial cells show low-level resistance to oxacillin, with minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of oxacillin ranging between 1 and 100 mg/l, while in(More)
The ability of latex agglutination (Slidex Pneumokit) and counterimmunoelectrophoresis to detectStreptococcus pneumoniae antigen in body fluids was evaluated. The patients were classified as having provenStreptococcus pneumoniae infection, suspectedStreptococcus pneumoniae infection, acute superinfection of chronic bronchitis or non-pneumoccal respiratory(More)
The minimal inhibitory concentration of temocillin (BRL 17421) against 476 clinical isolates was determined by an agar dilution method. Temocillin was active against most of the Enterobacteriaceae, Haemophilus, and Neisseria strains tested. The compound showed low activity or was inactive against Bacteroides, Campylobacter, Acinetobacter, Pseudomonas, and(More)
The pharmacokinetic profile of miconazole has been studied in normal subjects and in patients suffering from severe renal insufficiency; one group of patients was undergoing intermittent haemodialysis. A three-compartment open model was fitted to the observed plasma concentrations obtained after intravenous infusion of miconazole 522 mg over fifteen(More)
Of the P. aeruginosa isolates 128 were susceptible to CAR and 181 were resistant. The most active betalactams against both CAR-susceptible and CAR-resistant strains were CZD and THI (MIC90 between 2 and 8 ~tg/ml). Moderate activity (MIC90 between 16 and 64 ~tg/ml) which was little influenced by the resistance to carbenicillin, was shown, in order of(More)
A blood-free medium for the recovery of thermophilic Campylobacter was compared with Butzler Medium Virion during a one-year study using 2,893 human feces samples. Ninety Campylobacter strains (3.1 %) were isolated after incubation for 48 h at 42 ‡C in a candle jar atmosphere. Three strains of Campylobacter jejuni were isolated on the blood-free medium only(More)
