BACKGROUND The Prospective Resistant Organism Tracking and Epidemiology for the Ketolide Telithromycin (PROTEKT) longitudinal global surveillance study examines the antibacterial susceptibility of community-acquired respiratory pathogens. METHODS AND RESULTS Data from isolates collected in Germany in 1999-2000 in the PROTEKT study show that 8.3% of(More)
The group specific polysaccharide of Group B streptococci was isolated either by means of phenol-water extraction or by Lancefield extraction procedures. Two groups of rabbits were immunized with these substances to induce polyclonal antibodies. The phenol-water extract induced antisera had a significantly higher titer against B streptococci than against(More)
For mass cultivation of Candida albicans (serotype A), a fermenter dialysis culture technique is described and compared with shaking culture and fermenter batch culture techniques. Important growth parameters such as yeast dry weight and viable cell counts demonstrate the advantage of the fermenter dialysis culture. Mannan, the major antigen from Candida(More)
According to the present investigations the frequency of the proof of mycoplasms in the urine of haemodialysed patients and patients who underwent renal transplant operations does not differ from that of healthy control persons. A routine proof of mycoplasms is not proved necessary for the groups of patients examined. The standardisation of the plasms of(More)
Human lymphocytes derived from peripheral blood, the spleen and lymph nodes were fused to the HAT-sensitive heteromyeloma cell line CB-F7. The Ig-producing initial cell lines were selected, and the supernatants were further analyzed for specific antigen binding (ELISA). IgM-antibodies were found which reacted with self- and non-self antigens of different(More)
