We investigated the genetic structure of 99 isolates of serotype 23F Streptococcus pneumoniae from children with acute respiratory infections collected over two periods from 1997 to 2006, and 2010. All isolates were susceptible to vancomycin and amoxicillin-clavulanic acid; 97 were resistant to erythromycin, 95 of which carried the ermB gene and two carried(More)
We investigated the genetic structure of 120 isolates of serotype 19F Streptococcus pneumoniae from Chinese children with acute respiratory infections collected from 1997 to 2006, and 2010. All strains were susceptible to vancomycin and levofloxacin, and only five strains were not susceptible to penicillin. The non-susceptibility rate to cephalosporins(More)
The herbicide glyphosate, N-(phosphonomethyl) glycine, has been used extensively in the past 40years, under the assumption that side effects were minimal. However, in recent years, concerns have increased worldwide about the potential wide ranging direct and indirect health effects of the large scale use of glyphosate. In 2015, the World Health Organization(More)
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a highly malignant and frequently metastasized tumor, and the prognosis is very poor when distant metastases occur. Recently, immunotherapy is becoming a promising therapeutic approach. Interferon-α (IFN-α) represents the cytokines exhibiting the longest record of use in clinical oncology. In this study, we examined the(More)
