The species most frequently found in the group of neonates wasC. parapsilosis, its incidence reaching 48%. Other yeasts isolated from blood wereC. albicans (41%),C. tropicalis (7%),C. krusei andC. pseudotropicalis (2% each). Six yeast species (C. albicans 44%,C. parapsilosis 28%,C. tropicalis 11%,C. krusei 8%,C. guilliermondii 6%,C. lusitaniae 3%) were(More)
The presence and restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) of DNA fragments hybridizing with virulence and “house keeping” gene probes were analyzed for 87 group B streptococcal (GBS) strains of human and bovine origin. Most characteristics obtained for bovine strains were similar when compared with those for human strains. The most significant degree(More)
The incidence of non-albicans Candida and non-Candida species isolated from the urine of patients admitted to various departments of theFaculty Hospital of the Medical Faculty of Šafárik University in Košice was examined. From a total of 94 samples of analyzed urine 58 strains ofC. albicans and 36 strains of yeasts belonging to 6 species of non-albicans(More)
Nineteen serogroup 1/2aListeria monocytogenes strains isolated from raw milk, dairy products and salt water in one dairy were analyzed. Pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and ribotyping were used to determine whether these strains isolated over a 8-month period are epidemiologically related. The samples of raw milk were contaminated by differentL.(More)
One-hundred patients with candidosis of the skin, mucous membranes and nail plates (confirmed by cultivation) were examined. Topical or systemic antimycotic treatment was successful in 58 patients. After a complete evaluation, 42 patients were found to suffer from factors supporting candidosis —diabetes mellitus (12), anemia (3) and various local factors(More)
Results obtained by examination of cloacal swabs from poultry for the presence of verotoxigenic strains ofE. coli O157∶H7 are presented. Twenty samples (9.2%) of 216 samples examined were positive forE. coli O157. Out of 20E. coli O157, 19 strains were positive for the production of both verotoxins (VT1 and VT2). However, none of them was positive for the(More)
Cryptococcus neoformans isolated from various clinical materials in 14 cases, was identified by (1) cultivation on Sabouraud glucose agar and CHROMagarCandida, (2) microscopic examination of Indian-ink-stained preparations and (3) determination of biochemical properties (assimilation and fermentation of saccharides, assimilation of KNO3, production of(More)
Anti-Candida antibodies were determined in a group of preterm neonates from a neonatal intensive care unit with serious diseases including candidemia. Antibodies toC. albicans blastospores,i.e. antibodies toC. albicans surface mannan and toC. albicans germ tubes were detected. Higher titers of antibodies to blastospores (1:320) occurred in all patients(More)
T(CD3+)-, B(CD19+)-lymphocytes and their subsets (CD4+, CD8+, CD3+, DR+, CD3− DR+) in peripheral blood of patients with CIN I, CIN II, CIN III and cancerin situ associated with HPV infection were evaluated. In peripheral blood of women with CIN II, CIN III and cancerin situ the number of T-lymphocytes which expressed CD3+ DR+ antigen decreased. In patients(More)
One-hundred seventy-two B-streptococcal strains of human and bovine origin were analyzed for the presence of 9 genes potentially involved in virulence. Some of genes (glnA, cyl, hylB, scaA andcfb) were revealed in all the strains. However, the presence of others (bca, bac, scpB, lmb) varied from strain to strain. Taken together, 3 and 5 different types of(More)
