Clonal spread of SCCmec type IV methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus between community and hospital.
TLDR
Analysis of representative members of the three major pulsotypes by multilocus sequence typing revealed two sequence types (STs), namely ST239 and ST59, which suggest that ST59:SCCmecIV, which is usually community-acquired, has become an important nosocomial pathogen in the hospital studied.
Fusidic Acid Resistance Determinants in Staphylococcus aureus Clinical Isolates
TLDR
The distribution of fusidic acid resistance determinants (fusA mutations, fusB, and fusC) was quite different between MRSA and MSSA groups.
High Incidence of Cefoxitin and Clindamycin Resistance among Anaerobes in Taiwan
TLDR
The genetic relationships among the metronidazole-resistant B. fragilis strains showed genotypic heterogeneity, excluding the dissemination of a single clone, as well as the rates of susceptibility to imipenem and metronidsazole for B.Fragilis continue to be high compared to those from a previous study 10 years ago.
Clinical application of perfusion computed tomography in neurosurgery.
TLDR
Perfusion CT provides quantitative and qualitative data that can add diagnostic and prognostic value in a number of neurosurgical disorders, and also help with clinical decision making.
groESL Sequence Determination, Phylogenetic Analysis, and Species Differentiation for Viridans Group Streptococci
TLDR
The groESL sequence data provide an additional parameter for identification of viridans group streptococcal species and evolutionary trees similar to the tree constructed by use of the 16S rRNA gene are yielded.
PCR-RFLP assay for species and subspecies differentiation of the Streptococcus bovis group based on groESL sequences.
TLDR
Based on the sequences determined, a Streptococcus bovis group-specific PCR assay was developed, which may provide an alternative means of distinguishing the bov is group from other viridans streptococci.
Correlation among pathology, genetic and epigenetic profiles, and clinical outcome in oligodendroglial tumors
TLDR
The findings suggest that the frequent deletion and hypermethylation of tumor‐related genes may represent a mechanism of tumor development and progression and emphasize the importance of defining new molecular markers for predicting prognosis, tumor recurrence and therapeutic response in cancer management.
Distribution of emm Types and Genetic Characterization of the mgc Locus in Group G Streptococcus dysgalactiae subsp. equisimilis from a Hospital in Northern Taiwan
TLDR
The cpdB-positive mgrC locus appears to be predominant in some emm types in Streptococcus dysgalactiae subsp.
