In response to their alleged "uterus affinity" the organotropism of various Toxoplasma strains was investigated in the female mouse. Using quantitative histological (immunofluorescence) and serological (Sabin-Feldman-dye test, complement fixation test), we examined the brain, heart, lung, spleen, striated muscle, uterus and ovaries. The following results(More)
 In order to evaluate the differences in efficacy, three methods were used to detect group B streptococci (GBS) in women in labor. The recommended method for detecting GBS carriage in pregnant women is to culture vaginal and anorectal swabs in a selective broth medium and to subculture them onto blood agar. This method was compared with the use of GBS agar(More)
 In an attempt to determine the actual relevance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa as a target of empiric antimicrobial first-line therapy in febrile cancer patients, 44 reports of clinical trials on antimicrobial treatment regimens and 53 reports on the epidemiology of microbiologically documented infections in cancer patients were reviewed. The incidence of(More)
BACKGROUND The resistance of enterococci against various antimicrobial substances including vancomycin has increased markedly. Since 1989 in the USA in particular high resistance rates against vancomycin have been observed but very few surveillance have been published in Europe. Therefore, we conducted a multicenter study in Germany to obtain information(More)
An open, comparative multicenter study was performed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of azithromycin (10 mg/kg) given once daily for three days in comparison with cefaclor (30 mg/kg) divided into three daily doses and given for a period of ten days. One hundred and twenty-two children aged 1–12 years with clinical symptoms of group Aβ-hemolytic(More)
Two-hundred-and-six strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae were isolated in eight centers in West Germany. The prevalent serotypes were: 19, 3, 6, 7, 23 and 15. Seventy-five percent of the strains tested were antigenically identical to the pneumococcal types included in the 14-valent vaccine Pneumovax. Susceptibility testing revealed resistance to tetracycline(More)
The aerobic and facultatively anaerobic vaginal flora of 242 healthy women were examined during menstrual cycles. The most frequently isolated microorganisms at the first premenstrual examination were coagulase-negative staphylococci (61%), followed by enterococci (25%), Gardnerella vaginalis (19%), diphtheroids (12%), group B streptococci (6.8%),(More)
