To characterize the degree to which CA-MRSA strains are imported into and transmitted in pediatric intensive care units (PICU), we performed a retrospective study of children admitted to The Johns Hopkins Hospital PICU, March(More)
Studies were undertaken to characterize and determine the pathogenic mechanisms involved in a newly described systemic disease in Homarus americanus (American lobster) caused by a Vibrio fluvialis-like microorganism. Nineteen isolates were obtained from eight of nine lobsters sampled. Biochemically, the isolates resembled V. fluvialis, and the isolates grew(More)
A Vibrio tubiashii hemagglutinin, a protease, was purified by ammonium sulfate precipitation, gel filtration, and hydrophobic interaction chromatography. It agglutinates sheep, chicken, bovine, rabbit, guinea pig, and human erythrocytes. It has a molecular mass of 35 kDa, isoelectric points of 3.5 and 3.7, and is inhibited by ortho-phenanthro line,(More)
