Spoligotyping was performed to study the population structure of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex strains (n = 224) from Bangladesh. Strains were split into principal genetic group 1 (PGG 1 [75.0%]) and PGG 2 and 3 (25%). Forty-nine strains with a new spoligotype signature and considered as south or southeast Asian-linked emerging clones were designated(More)
The efficacy and safety of a 3-day regimen of azithromycin prescribed in the new tablet form and of a 10-day regimen of amoxycillin clavulanic acid (co-amoxiclav, Augmentin) were compared in patients with acute lower respiratory tract infections. Of the 144 enrolled patients, 123 had a Type 1 acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis (AECB), three patients(More)
Acid-fast bacilli (AFB) were detected in the autopsy lung tissue homogenate samples of four cows (variety Frisian cross) in a dairy farm in Bangladesh. Histopathological examination of the lung tissue demonstrated prominent granulomas, caseating necrosis and calcification indicative of tuberculosis (TB) infection. Mycobacteria could not be cultured from the(More)
The efficacy and safety of ofloxacin 400 mg once daily and amoxycillin/clavulanic acid 500/125 mg three times daily were compared in a double-blind manner in patients with an acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis. Of 102 patients enrolled, 95 (93%) could be assessed for effectiveness. Treatment success was achieved in 41 (84%) of 49 patients in the(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the comparative efficacy and safety of equal doses of inhaled fluticasone propionate (FP) and inhaled budesonide (BUD) using their respective dry powder inhalers in a population of severe asthmatics requiring high doses of inhaled corticosteroid. This double-blind double-dummy parallel-group study compared the(More)
Nodular pulmonary amyloidosis was diagnosed by percutaneous transthoracic fine needle biopsy specimen in an 88-year-old woman. Congo red staining should be performed whenever band-like hyalinized material is obtained on aspiration of a solitary nodule. Dense calcifications can occur in pulmonary amyloidomas. In selected cases, fine needle biopsy appears to(More)
