BACKGROUND Nonsynonymous single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in fibronectin binding protein A (fnbA) of Staphylococcus aureus are associated with cardiac device infections. However, the role of fnbA SNPs in S. aureus arthroplasty infection is unknown. METHODS Bloodstream S. aureus isolates from a derivation cohort of patients at a single U.S. medical(More)
BACKGROUND Using demographic and clinical measures from emergency department evaluations, we developed an automated surveillance system for influenza-like illness (ILI). METHODS We selected a random sample of patients who were seen at the Durham, NC Veterans Affairs Medical Center between May 2002 and October 2009 with fever or a respiratory ICD-9(More)
