Multiplex PCR for the detection of genes encoding aminoglycoside modifying enzymes and methicillin resistance among Staphylococcus species.
The multiplex PCR method that was developed appears to be both a more rapid and reliable than conventional method and to be closely associated with methicillin-resistance.

ABSTRACT A novel human rotavirus strain, CUK-1, containing a G11 type combined with a P type was isolated from a 1-year-old female patient with fever and severe diarrhea at Our Lady of Mercy…
Kawasaki Disease: Laboratory Findings and an Immunopathogenesis on the Premise of a "Protein Homeostasis System"
Early treatment is mandatory to reduce the risk of CAL progression and severity of CALs, and a hypothetical pathogenesis of KD is proposed under the premise of a "protein homeostasis system".

Difference of clinical features in childhood Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia
In MP, older children had more prolonged fever and more severe pulmonary lesions, and the severity of pulmonary lesions was associated with the absence of diagnostic IgM antibodies at presentation and lymphocyte count.
Life-threatening scrub typhus with hemophagocytosis and acute respiratory distress syndrome in an infant.
The case of an 8-month-old boy with scrub typhus accompanied by hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), which was complicated by acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), status epilepticus and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC).
Safety and immunogenicity of an inactivated split-virus influenza A/H1N1 vaccine in healthy children from 6 months to <18 years of age: a prospective, open-label, multi-center trial.
Genetic diversity of the ftsI gene in β-lactamase-nonproducing ampicillin-resistant and β-lactamase-producing amoxicillin-/clavulanic acid-resistant nasopharyngeal Haemophilus influenzae strains…
Investigation of H. influenzae carriage in the nasopharynx of 360 children, in terms of the prevalence of strains with decreased susceptibility, and the presence of amino acid substitutions in PBP3, found a genetic diversity likely indicative of significant potential for decreased antimicrobial susceptibility.
