The presence of the enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) virulence genes aatA, aap, and aggR was assayed in strains of different diarrheagenic E. coli pathotypes and nonpathogenic E. coli. The dispersin-encoding gene (aap) was detected in EAEC, diffusely adherent E. coli, and nonpathogenic E. coli, demonstrating that molecular diagnostics of EAEC based(More)
The collection of biological samples through non-invasive techniques represents one way of monitoring in vivo physiological changes associated with reproductive activity. Such techniques are particularly important for the study of animal species in the wild. The goals of this study were 1) to evaluate fecal progestogen (P), estrogen (E), and androgen (A) by(More)
Indications for cardiac pacing in pediatric patients continue to expand. In addition to its traditional use in sinus and atrioventricular nodal disease, applications for cardiac pacing now include treatment of tachyarrhythmias after repair of congenital heart disease, reduction of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy,(More)
Two cases of androgen secreting adrenocortical carcinoma have been described by light and electron microscopy. The histological and ultrastructural features of the tumour cells were similar to those of compact cells of zona reticularis and to those described in virilizing adenomas. They possess numerous mitochondria with lamellar and tubular cristae,(More)
The aim of this observational study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a dietary integrator containing methionine, zinc, Echinacea angustifolia and E. purpurea, probiotics, and antioxidant factors (Immuno Gin) in the treatment of mild cervical dysplasia associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. The study sample was 95 women (age range, 31-55(More)
