In this study, the distribution of β-lactamase genes among 55 consecutive Acinetobacter baumannii isolates with reduced susceptibility to imipenem collected at Prince Salman Hospital (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) from February-June 2011 was investigated. Minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) were determined by Etest and were interpreted against Clinical and(More)
BACKGROUND Preclinical and clinical data suggest the possibility of neurotoxicity following exposure of young children to general anesthetics with subsequent behavioral disturbances. The aim of the study was to determine the overall effect of repeated general anesthesia on behavior and emotions of young children aged 1½-5 years old, compared to healthy(More)
The objectives of this study were to determine the prevalences, genotypes, and clonal relationships of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing strains in 98 Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from Riyadh. The prevalence of ESBLs in these strains was 37·75%. All isolates that were confirmed to have ESBLs were completely resistant to(More)

During the period of 10th February-30th May 2015, 70 E. coli strains were isolated from chicken farms located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. All strains were tested phenotypically by standard(More)
We consider optimization problems in Banach spaces, whose cost functions are convex and smooth, but do not possess strengthened convexity properties. We propose a general class of iterative methods, which are based on combining descent and regularization approaches and provide strong convergence of iteration sequences to a solution of the initial problem.
