Human granulocytic ehrlichiosis in the upper Midwest United States. A new species emerging?
OBJECTIVE To characterize the clinical presentation and course, laboratory findings, and treatment outcome of 12 patients with human granulocytic ehrlichiosis. SETTING The 12 patients were male,Expand
Corynebacterium equi: a review of 12 cases of human infection.
Corynebacterium equi, an aerobic, variably acid-fast, gram-positive "diphtheroid," is an unusual cause of pulmonary infection in immunosuppressed patients. Initially, infection with C. equi may beExpand
Bacteremia in Charleston County, South Carolina.
To describe the epidemiology of bacteremia in a large, well defined population, the authors reviewed medical records for residents of Charleston County, South Carolina, who had bacteria isolated fromExpand
Effect of method of administration on extravascular penetration of four antibiotics.
The effect of both method of drug administration and serum protein binding on antibiotic penetration into subcutaneous Visking chambers was studied in rabbits. Ampicillin and oxacillin wereExpand
Evaluation of rapid commercial enzyme immunoassay for detection of Giardia lamblia in formalin-preserved stool specimens.
Two hundred twenty-three formalin-preserved stool specimens were evaluated by using ProSpecT Giardia Rapid Assay (membrane bound) (Alexon, Inc., Sunnyvale, Calif.). Enzyme immunoassay (EIA) resultsExpand
Effect of the ratio of surface area to volume on the penetration of antibiotics in to extravascular spaces in an in vitro model.
The penetration of cephapirin into extravascular spaces of various volumes and ratios of surface area to volume (SA/V) was studied in an in vitro kinetic model. The SA/V ratio was found to be anExpand
The C.A.S.E. approach: guidance for talking to vaccine-hesitant parents.
Primary care physicians are encountering a growing number of parents who have concerns about vaccinating their children. This article describes the C.A.S.E. (Corroborate, About me, Science,Expand

PATIENTS experiencing disseminated varicella-zoster infection may have significant morbidity in the form of pain, extreme fevers (temperature ≥40 °C), rigors, anorexia, malaise, and, rarely,Expand
Comparison Study of the Kinetics of Ceftizoxime Penetration into Extravascular Spaces with Known Surface Area/Volume Ratio In Vitro and In Vivo in Rabbits
The extravascular kinetics of ceftizoxime were studied both in an in vitro kinetic model and in an in vivo rabbit model. Visking tubing chambers were used in both models to provide extravascularExpand
