Acute lower respiratory infection (ALRI), primarily pneumonia, is the leading cause of death in children under the age of five. Bacterial ALRI is preceded by asymptomatic bacterial colonization. Bacterial colonization, therefore, may have an important role in the development of pneumonia in children. This case-control study was conducted in order to(More)
BACKGROUND Acute lower respiratory infections (ALRI), primarily pneumonia, are the leading cause of death in children under 5 years of age. Most of these deaths occur in Africa and southeast Asia. Increasing rates of drug resistance in pneumococcal strains emphasize the necessity of prevention of pneumococcal vaccines. The aim of the present study was to(More)
Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a common cause of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in children, but there has been no clinical report on M. pneumoniae infections in Vietnamese children. We investigated the clinical features of M. pneumoniae infection when the pathogen was detected in the respiratory tract in hospitalized children aged 1-15 years due to lower(More)
A total of 135 stomach samples from patients with gastrointestinal diseases and normal controls were examined for Helicobacter pylori infection and Candida colonization. Candida krusei was found in specimens from 20% bleeding, 52% ulcer, and 100% gastritis patients, whereas H. pylori infection rates were 82%, 35% and 30%, respectively, for the same groups(More)
Thirty-seven Haemophilus influenzae strains from nasopharyngeal swabs (NP) and 44 H. influenzae strains from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) were investigated. Of the 37 H. influenzae isolates from NP, the serotypes of 30 isolates were nontypeable, 4 were type b, 2 were type c, and 1 was type a, whereas all of the 44 isolates from CSF were type b. The MICs of 16(More)
This paper aims to analytically and graphically explore the characteristics of ASEAN+3’s trade and FDI integration over the period 1990-2012 by applying the tools of network analysis. Our results first find evidence that the degree of trade and FDI integration varies among ASEAN+3 member states over the observation period. Second, ASEAN+3’s intra-regional(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Helicobacter pylori can survive long incubation periods under anaerobic conditions, and should be possible to isolate under anaerobic conditions. Our aim was to isolate H. pylori in anaerobic conditions, from gastric biopsies of H. pylori infected patients. METHODS We enrolled 27 patients with bleeding (erosive) gastritis (mean age 36.3(More)
