The aim of the study was the characterization of Malassezia pachydermatis and its pigment-producing subgroup using biochemical tests and RAPD. It was of interest to determine whether particular RAPD patterns could be used to indicate pigment production, as well as a close genetic relatedness to Malassezia furfur. Therefore, 210 strains of M. pachydermatis(More)
Field studies were conducted to determine the responses of mosquitoes found in north central Florida bay and cypress swamps to carbon dioxide (CO2), light, butanone, and 1-octen-3-ol (octenol), alone and CO2 in combination with each of the others. The response of these mosquito species to 5 CO2 release rates (2, 20, 100, 200, and 2,000 ml/min) of CO2 was(More)
Hantavirus activity in 39 National Parks in the eastern and central United States was surveyed by testing 1,815 small mammals of 38 species for antibody reactive to Sin Nombre virus. Antibody-positive rodents were found throughout the area sampled, and in most biotic communities. Antibody was detected in 7% of 647 deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus), 2% of(More)
We reviewed the data of 45 alkaline comet assay studies with lymphocytes published during the last three years with the objective of monitoring human exposure to genotoxic agents as a result of occupation, drug treatment, diseases or environmental pollution. The strengths of the studies were that: (i) a lot of data could be obtained within a relatively(More)
The non-invasive tension-time index of the inspiratory muscles at rest (TTMUS) can be used for assessing respiratory muscle function in children with cystic fibrosis (CF). This study aimed to investigate how TTMUS becomes altered with increasing pulmonary impairment, and which factors determine TTMUS changes in CF. We assessed TTMUS in 47 patients with(More)
Background: Newly diagnosed insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus is characterised by a temporary recovery of endogeneous insulin ("remission") after the beginning of medical treatment with subcutaneous insulin injections. Although most diabetologists think, that insulin reserve is related to reduced occurrence of diabetic long-term complications, such as(More)
