By contrast with hospital-acquired MRSA, community-acquired MRSA is more susceptible to non b-lactam antibiotics.(More)
The diagnostic significance of the plasma concentration of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) was evaluated in 72 dogs with mitral valve insufficiency and 36 control dogs. In the controls, the plasma NT-proBNP concentration was 163.9 +/- 114.7 (SD) pmol/l. The values in those with International Small Animal Cardiac Health Council (ISACHC)(More)
