We compared the diagnostic performance of two chromogenic media, Brilliance MRSA 2 agar (Thermo Fisher Scientific) and ChromID MRSA agar (bioMérieux), for MRSA confirmation of 239 Staphylococcus aureus isolates from clinical, animal and food samples. Statistically significant differences were not observed between MRSA confirmation by mecA/mecC PCR, and by(More)
A handset antenna technique combining a parallel excitation of a PIFA and a slot is presented. The number of frequency bands is given by the sum of bands given per each radiator which can be controlled independently. Component interaction (battery, display, and speaker) is analyzed to determine the best place to mitigate performance degradation. Finally, a(More)
This paper presents a semantic web-based architecture to share alerts among Security Information Management Systems (SIMS). Such architecture is useful if two or more SIMS from different domains need to know information about alerts happening in the other domains, which is useful for an early response to network incidents. For this, an ontology has been(More)
Security information and event management (SIEM) is considered to be a promising paradigm to reconcile traditional intrusion detection processes along with most recent advances on artificial intelligence techniques in providing automatic and self–adaptive systems. However, classic management– related flaws still persist, e.g. the fusion of large amounts of(More)
A technique for the handset antenna field combining a PIFA and a slot in presented. The antenna concept features a small footprint and multi-band operation which is required for the new generation of thin profile handset phones. KeywordsPIFA and slot antennas, handset antennas, multi-band operation INTRODUCTION One of the decisive aspects of a portable(More)
In this study we attempt to assess the utility of a simplified step-wise diagnostic algorithm to determinate the aetiology of encephalitis in daily clinical practice and to describe the main causes in our setting. This was a prospective cohort study of all consecutive cases of encephalitis in adult patients diagnosed between January 2010 and March 2015 at(More)
To determine transmission rates for neonatal conjunctivitis causative microorganisms in Angola, we analyzed 312 endocervical and 255 conjunctival samples from mothers and newborns, respectively, during 2011-2012. Transmission rates were 50% for Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae and 10.5% for Mycoplasma genitalium. Possible pathogenic effects(More)
