Fusidic Acid Resistance Determinants in Staphylococcus aureus Clinical Isolates
ABSTRACT A total of 71 fusidic acid-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (45 methicillin-resistant and 26 methicillin-susceptible) isolates were examined for the presence of resistance determinants. AmongExpand
Taiwan National Newborn Screening Program by Tandem Mass Spectrometry for Mucopolysaccharidoses Types I, II, and VI
Objective To evaluate the initial cutoff values, rates of screen positives, and genotypes for the large‐scale newborn screening program for multiple mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) in Taiwan. StudyExpand
PCR-RFLP assay for species and subspecies differentiation of the Streptococcus bovis group based on groESL sequences.
The sequence diversity of groESL genes among Streptococcus bovis group isolates was analysed, including five reference strains and 36 clinical isolates. Phylogenetic analysis of the groES and groELExpand
Gemella parahaemolysans sp. nov. and Gemella taiwanensis sp. nov., isolated from human clinical specimens.
Four Gram-staining-positive, catalase-negative, coccoid isolates, designated NTUH_1465(T), NTUH_2196, NTUH_4957 and NTUH_5572(T), were isolated from human specimens. The four isolates displayed moreExpand
Controlled-release of tetracycline and lovastatin by poly(d,l-lactide-co-glycolide acid)-chitosan nanoparticles enhances periodontal regeneration in dogs
Chronic periodontitis is characterized by inflammation of periodontal tissues, leading to bone resorption and tooth loss. The goal of treatment is to regenerate periodontal tissues including bone andExpand
The erm(T) Gene Is Flanked by IS1216V in Inducible Erythromycin-Resistant Streptococcus gallolyticus subsp. pasteurianus
ABSTRACT We investigated the sequence and the genetic context of the erm(T) gene in six inducible erythromycin-resistant Streptococcus gallolyticus subsp. pasteurianus (formerly S. bovis biotypeExpand

harbouring these genes observed in the present study indicates horizontal dissemination of genes between different serotypes of S. enterica in The Netherlands. Although the impact of transferableExpand
Use of groESL as a Target for Identification of Abiotrophia, Granulicatella, and Gemella Species
ABSTRACT We determined the groESL sequences of three species of nutritionally variant streptococci (Abiotrophia defectiva, Granulicatella adiacens, and Granulicatella elegans) and three GemellaExpand
Emergence of a small colony variant of vancomycin-intermediate Staphylococcus aureus in a patient with septic arthritis during long-term treatment with daptomycin.
OBJECTIVES Small colony variants (SCVs) of Staphylococcus aureus are associated with persistent and drug-resistant infections. We demonstrated for the first time the emergence of SCVs in a patientExpand
