A surveillance study of antimicrobial resistance of gram-negative bacteria isolated from intensive care units in eight hospitals in Turkey.
High resistance rates to all the other antibacterials studied leave imipenem as the only reliable agent for the empirical treatment of ICU infections in Turkey, suggesting the presence of an enzyme resistant to tazobactam action.
Extended-spectrum beta-lactamases in ceftazidime-resistant Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates in Turkish hospitals.
TEM and SHV genes are highly prevalent among ESBL-producing E. coli and K. pneumoniae , whereas GES-type ESBLs are absent and found not to be responsible of ceftazidime resistance in Turkish hospitals.
Weil's disease: report of 12 cases.
The epidemiological distribution and clinical features of 12 cases of Weil's disease from Turkey, are reviewed and Ig M antibodies were detected in 11 (92%) of the patients and is an accurate marker for acute leptospirosis.
[Investigation of carbapenemases in carbapenem-resistant Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae strains isolated in 2014 in Turkey].
Iertapenem seems to be the most sensitive agent in screening carbapenemsases in areas where OXA-48 is prevalent and phenotypic combination tests can be useful in centers where molecular tests are not available.
Does Surgical Technique Influence Cataract Surgery Contamination?
Although the architecture of the incision and irrigation dynamics provided an advantage to the PE technique as the operating time became longer, routine PE was not superior to classical ECCE with respect to contamination when performed in the same circumstances.
Surveillance of antimicrobial resistance among gram-negative isolates from intensive care units in eight hospitals in Turkey.
With the participation of eight major reference hospitals in Turkey, 749 aerobic Gram-negative isolates obtained from 473 intensive care patients in 1997 were tested for their susceptibility to 13
Comparison of a real-time polymerase chain reaction-based system and Erlich-Ziehl-Neelsen method with culture in the identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
It is suggested that GeneXpert MTB/RIF is a rapid and reliable system, and when used in company with conventional tests, it would make significant contributions to the diagnosis of tuberculosis.
Prevalence of serum HGV-RNA among hemodialysis patients in Turkey
Hemodialysis patients carry the risk for HGV infection and transmission routes and clinical significance of HGV infections in these patients remain to be defined.
Comparison of Antifungal Susceptibilities in Candidemic Newborns According to Their Body Weights
Bu calismanin amaci kandidemik yenidoganlardaki antifungal ilac duyarliklarinin dogum agirliklarina gore degerlendirilmesidir bebeklerdeki olasi risk faktorlerinin daha az olmasindan kaynaklanmis olabilir.
Prevalence of anti-HCV among haemodialysis patients in Turkey: a multicentre study.
