Candidaemia still continues to be a serious medical concern and the epidemiology of candidaemia varies according to geographical areas. We aim to determine the incidence, local epidemiology, Candida species distribution and crude mortality rates of candidaemia. We retrospectively evaluated candidaemia episodes in between January 2007 and August 2014. We(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to investigate the presence of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) using the real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method in the adenoid tissues in children undergoing surgical operation due to adenoid hypertrophy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Adenoid tissues of 23 children (8 girls, 15 boys; mean age 6.2 years; range 3 to 9 years) who(More)
Sulphur is an important mineral element for plant growth and development. It involves in a number of metabolic processes with crucial functions. This study has performed a genome-wide analysis of sulfate transporter (SULTR) genes in Brachypodium distachyon. Ten putative SULTR genes were identified in Brachypodium genome. BdSULTR genes included 6–17 exons(More)
Fungal brain abscesses are a rare but serious complication in transplant recipients. Phialemonium organisms are rare causes of invasive mold infections. Here, we present the first case of a renal transplant recipient with multiple brain abscesses caused by Phialemonium infection A.

Infective endocarditis (IE) is a serious infectious condition with high morbidity and mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). It has been particularly associated with recurrent bacteremia due to vascular access via lumen catheters. The most common pathogen is Staphylococcus (S.) aureus, and most affected valve is mitral valve, which(More)
BACKGROUND The increases of free radicals have been proposed to be involved in the pathogenesis of sepsis, which leads to multiple-organ dysfunction syndromes. The uses of antioxidants as a complementary tool in the medical care of oxidative stress-related diseases have attracted attention of researchers. Resveratrol (RV) has suggested being antioxidant,(More)
