BACKGROUND The value of thrombolytic therapy in unstable angina is unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS To study this problem, 159 patients were studied in a double-blind, placebo-controlled multicenter trial. Patients without a previous myocardial infarction, with a typical history of unstable angina, and ECG abnormalities indicative of ischemia were included.(More)
BACKGROUND Analysis of coronary flow velocity (CFV) in the recanalized infarct-related coronary artery (IRA) with a Doppler guidewire is useful for predicting recovery of regional left ventricular function, in-hospital complications, and survival. We postulated that the CFV pattern after IRA reperfusion for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) would predict(More)
To see whether detection of antibodies against listeriolysin O (LLO) could be used to diagnose human listeriosis, sera from 28 patients infected with Listeria monocytogenes and 101 controls were tested by dot-blot titration with purified LLO. 27 patients (96.4%) with listeriosis produced specific anti-LLO. Anti-LLO was detected in 8 (15.6%) of 51 healthy(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the in-vitro bacteriostatic activity of levofloxacin in comparison with that of ofloxacin, sparfloxacin and ciprofloxacin against 205 strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae (101 penicillin-susceptible, 51 penicillin-intermediate and 53 penicillin-resistant). The isolates were provided between September 1996 and(More)
