The objective of this study was to analyse the occurrence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in three dairy herds in the southwest of Germany that had experienced individual cases of clinical and subclinical mastitis associated with MRSA. The herds were identified by the detection of MRSA during routine resistance testing of mastitis(More)
A retrospective multicentre clinicopathological study was performed on sequential bone marrow trephine biopsies in 100 patients with Ph1+-chronic myelogenous leukaemia (CML) to elucidate the effect of interferon (IFN) alpha 2b and hydroxyurea (HU) treatment on myelofibrosis and megakaryopoiesis. According to strictly defined therapeutic regimens, 38(More)
A total of 144 clinical isolates of Acinetobacter species, i.e., A. baumannii (n = 60), genospecies 3 (n = 48), A. haemolyticus (n = 12), and genospecies 6 (n = 24), were examined comparatively with the agar dilution method of the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards for susceptibility to 25 antimicrobial drugs. Only minor species(More)
Addition of phenylbutazone (2 mg/ml) to 55 vol % of fresh defibrinated human blood permitted leukocytic ingestion of serum-resistant Serratia marcescens bacteria, but blocked phagocytic killing activity. The group A (phage tail) bacteriocin bA+ 16 served to kill extraphagocytic test bacteria. At greater than or equal to 2 X MBC, the DNA gyrase inhibitor(More)
Reference strains of Legionella pneumophila (serotypes 1-4, and 6), Legionella micdadei , and Legionella bozemanii proved susceptible (agar dilution test, buffered charcoal yeast extract agar) to erythromycin, rifampin, augmentin (amoxycillin plus clavulanic acid), cefotaxime, cefoxitin, enoxacin , fusidic acid, and norfloxacin; cefamandole was less active.(More)
INTRODUCTION Disability adjusted life years (DALY) is a measure of burden of disease (BOD) that assesses the years of healthy life lost due to disease or illness. OBJECTIVE The main objective of the study was to develop a draft measure of the BOD in Sri Lanka, using DALY. METHODS Computation was done for 100 disease categories identified to reflect the(More)
The minimal intraperitoneal (i.p.) immunogenic doses of phenol-hot water lipopolysaccharide (P-W- LPS) preparations from three strains of Serratia marcescens for juvenile NMRI mice ranged from 3.2 to 16 ng following i.p. challenge infection with homologous strains. Dual autoclaving (121 degrees C, 15 min) abolished the cross-immunogenicity of two selected(More)
Recent developments show that the standardization of cloud service descriptions and exchange leads the way for the rise of <i>cloud federations</i>. In these federations <i>CSPs</i> (<i>cloud service providers</i>) can use resources of other <i>CSPs</i> in the case of a lack of local resources or they can add remote services to their catalogue. <i>Cloud(More)
Ampicillin, fusidic acid, gentamicin, imipenem, mezlocillin, ofloxacin, penicillin G, piperacillin, and vancomycin were examined for inhibitory and bactericidal activity in various broth media against 7 clinical isolates of Streptococcus faecalis. On a weight-for-weight basis, ampicillin, imipenem, mezlocillin, and ofloxacin proved to be more efficacious.(More)
