OBJECTIVE To assess the bacterial profile and pattern of antibiotic resistance of urinary tract infections (UTIs) pathogens and to determine its clinical impact on management. METHODS Midstream urine samples were submitted for culture from 1998 to 2002, and 798 isolates were obtained for antimicrobial susceptibility testing including amikacin (AMK),(More)
We conducted active, laboratory-based surveillance for isolates from patients with invasive infections across China from August 2009 to July 2010. DNA sequencing methods were used to define species, and susceptibility to fluconazole and voriconazole was determined by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute M44-A2 disk diffusion method but using(More)
Twenty-nine Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates, which are resistant to carbapenems but susceptible to ceftazidime or/and cefepime, were recovered from our hospital from July 2011 to October 2011. The results of Western blotting showed that the OprD was reduced or lost. None of the 29 clinical isolates produced carbapenemases, extended-spectrum β-lactamases, or(More)
There has been a rising incidence of invasive aspergillosis (IA) in critically ill patients, even in the absence of an apparent predisposing immunodeficiency. The diagnosis of IA is difficult because clinical signs are not sensitive and specific, and serum galactomannan has relatively low sensitivity in this group of patients. Therefore, more prompt and(More)
BACKGROUND Invasive aspergillosis (IA) is an important cause of mortality in critically ill patients, but the diagnosis is difficult as clinical and radiological signs are neither sensitive nor specific. Serum galactomannan (GM) is a useful marker for IA, but exhibits low sensitivity in non-neutropenic patients. In our previous work, strong antibody(More)
Invasive yeast infections cause significant morbidity and mortality. Surveillance for the infection is necessary to detect trends in species distribution and antifungal resistance. We performed this retrospective study of yeast infection at Jinling Hospital, Nanjing in China, from year of 2010 to 2012. A total of 341 yeast isolates were obtained from(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the genotype distribution of extended-spectrum p-lactamases (ESBLs) and AmpC p-lactamases produced in E. coli isolated from men with urinary infection in Nanjing. METHODS Organisms of clinical infection were identified by automatic microbial system (Vitek-32). ESBLs were detected by disk diffusion confirmatory test, and ESBLs and AmpC(More)
Testicular regression syndrome (MIM273250) is characterized primarily by absence of gonads in a person of XY karyotype. Phenotypes range from complete female external genitalia (primary or "true" agonadism) to male phenotype with anorchia (testicular regression). Phenotypic differences depend on the stage of embryo development during which testes(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the distinctive histopathological changes of nontuberculous mycobacteria lymphadenitis. METHODS An experimental animal model of nontuberculous mycobacteria lymphadenitis was established and the histopathological changes were observed by light microscope. The paraffin imbedded tissue samples from patients suspected of having lymphoid(More)
