Recent studies have reported a frequent association of these strains with hospital outbreaks, and an incidence varying over time and by region. In order to evaluate the MRSA lineages(More)
BACKGROUND Diagnosis/grading of infection and the systemic response to infection may be difficult on admission to the intensive care unit, but it is even more complicated for severely ill patients with long intensive care stays.

The data concerning annual usage in a general hospital and the frequency of resistant bacterial strains, isolated from patients with urinary tract's infection from 1975 to 1977 were collected and statistically processed. It was noticed that the year by year variation of resistance were mainly confined to E. coli and P. mirabilis. Increasing resistance with(More)
A study was carried out on 150 strains of staphylococci of human origin in order to evaluate the possibility of achieving identification that is accurate, swift and perhaps economical, with the following aims in mind: a) the testing of fast systems for the detection of coagulase of Staphyslide and Sero Stat compared with classical coagulase in a test tube(More)
