Are we aware how contaminated our mobile phones with nosocomial pathogens?
It is shown that HCWs' hands and their mobile phones were contaminated with various types of microorganisms, which may be a source of nosocomial infections in hospitals.
In Vivo Efficacy of Drugs against Toxoplasma gondii Combined with Immunomodulators.
The triple combination of PYR-SDZ-levamisole could be an alternative treatment option in case of infections caused by T. gondii and survival rate increased in the groups treated with the combinations including echinacea; however the difference did not reach statistical significance.
Panton-Valentine leukocidin in community and hospital-acquired Staphylococcus aureus strains
Although PVL is known as a common virulence factor of CA MRSA, HA MRSA isolates in this study showed a considerable rate of PVL positivity, and obtained results showed a substantial level of PV L genes in the studied region.
Investigation of diagnostic potentials of nine different biomarkers in endometriosis.
Findings show that the concurrent measurement of CA125, syntaxin-5 and laminin-1 might be a useful non-invasive test in strengthening the diagnosis of endometriosis and in predicting its severity.
[Investigation of carbapenemases in carbapenem-resistant Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae strains isolated in 2014 in Turkey].
Iertapenem seems to be the most sensitive agent in screening carbapenemsases in areas where OXA-48 is prevalent and phenotypic combination tests can be useful in centers where molecular tests are not available.
Comparison of a real-time polymerase chain reaction-based system and Erlich-Ziehl-Neelsen method with culture in the identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
It is suggested that GeneXpert MTB/RIF is a rapid and reliable system, and when used in company with conventional tests, it would make significant contributions to the diagnosis of tuberculosis.

Disseminated Panton-Valentine Leukocidin-Positive Staphylococcus aureus infection in a child.
This case report included a 12-year-old male patient who was identified with necrotizing pneumonia with septic pulmonary embolism, psoas abscess, cellulitis and osteomyelitis and the PVL positive methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA) was isolated in the patient blood culture.
Antimicrobial Susceptibility of Acinetobacter baumannii complex Isolated From Different Clinical Samples In A Tertiary Care Hospital
The aim of this study is to determine the antimicrobial resistance ratios in A. baumannii complex isolates isolated from the patients staying in the authors' hospital and contributing to the studies made on this subject.
Distribution of Nontuberculous Mycobacteria strains
It is important to know that infections caused by unidentified MOTT species may vary according to the regions in Turkey, and that frequency of these species were affected by the newly identified species as a result of the use of novel molecular methods.
