Candida nivariensis and Candida bracarensis were isolated from patients with vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC). Candida nivariensis and Candida bracarensis were found in presumptive Candida glabrata isolates, which were identified using the API Candida system. We retrospectively re-examined vaginal presumptive Candida glabrata isolates for Candida nivariensis(More)
BACKGROUND Many proteomics initiatives require integration of all information with uniformcriteria from collection of samples and data display to publication of experimental results. The integration and exchanging of these data of different formats and structure imposes a great challenge to us. The XML technology presents a promise in handling this task due(More)
This study aimed to determine the clinical characteristics and in vitro susceptibilities of Candida parapsilosis sensu stricto, Candida orthopsilosis and Candida metapsilosis isolates from patients with vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC). We analysed 63 vaginal C. parapsilosis specimens. After the molecular analyses, the isolates were characterised as C.(More)
BACKGROUND The prognosis for many cancers could be improved dramatically if they could be detected while still at the microscopic disease stage. It follows from a comprehensive statistical analysis that a number of antigens such as hTERT, PCNA and Ki-67 can be considered as cancer markers, while another set of antigens such as P27KIP1 and FHIT are possible(More)
Research in mammalian hair cell regeneration is hampered by a lack of in vivo model of adult mouse inner ear injury. In the present study we investigated the effects of a combination of a single dose of aminoglycoside followed by a loop diuretic in adult mice. The auditory brainstem response threshold shift, extent and defining characteristics of the(More)
Recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC) is a common condition that can physically and psychologically impact patients. We compared the efficacy and safety of vaginal nystatin suppositories for 14 days each month versus standard oral fluconazole regimens for the treatment for RVVC. Patients (n = 293) were enrolled in the study from April 2010 to September(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the age-related expression of KCNQ1 and NKCC1 ion transporters in the stria vascularis in the cochlea of C57BL/6J mice, and to analyze the relationship between the two ion transporters and age-related hearing loss. METHODS Auditory function of C57BL/6J mice was measured by auditory brainstem response (ABR) at the ages of 4, 8, 14,(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the expression of plasma membrane Ca(2+)-ATPase isoform 2 (PMCA2) in spiral ganglion cell (SGC) from inner ear of newborn rats and further check PMCA2 splice variants at site A and C. METHODS Spiral ganglion tissues isolated from cochlea of newborn rats (P3-P4) were cultured and identified in vitro. The cochlea of newborn rats (P3-P4)(More)
