The ability to visualize the immune response with radioligands targeted to immune cells will enhance our understanding of cellular responses in inflammatory diseases. Peripheral benzodiazepine receptors (PBR) are present in monocytes and neutrophils as well as in lung tissue. We used lipopolysaccharide (LPS) as a model of inflammation to assess whether the(More)
Amphotericin B (AMB) is used to treat fungal infections of the central nervous system (CNS). However, AMB shows poor penetration into the CNS and little is known about the factors affecting its permeation through the blood-brain barrier (BBB). Therefore, we studied immunomodulatory and organism-associated molecules affecting the permeability of an in vitro(More)
High-level mupirocin resistance (H-Mu(r)) in S. aureus is associated with the mupA gene. The mupA Evigene test rapidly identifies this gene. This study assessed the performance of mupA Evigene compared to that of susceptibility disk testing. mupA Evigene detected H-Mu(r) in 6/179 S. aureus isolates, and the results were concordant with those of(More)
