Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is an opportunistic pathogen that causes respiratory and urinary tract infections, as well as wound infections in immunocompromised patients. This pathogen is difficult to treat due to increased resistance to many antimicrobial agents. We investigated the in vitro biofilm formation of S. maltophilia, including effects of(More)
Metabolomics is a new approach based on the systematic study of the full complement of small molecular metabolites in a biological sample. It could map the perturbations of early biochemical changes on diseases and hence provides an opportunity to develop predictive biomarkers that can result in earlier intervention and possess valuable insights into the(More)
Interleukin (IL)-32 is a novel proinflammatory cytokine, which has been shown to play an important role in tumor growth and metastasis. Here, we discovered that IL-32 was aberrantly over-expressed in lung adenocarcinoma tissues and cell lines. Positive expression of IL-32 significantly correlated with the clinical staging, and lymph node and distant(More)
BACKGROUND Detection of Acinetobacter baumannii has been relying primarily on bacterial culture that often fails to return useful results in time. Although DNA-based assays are more sensitive than bacterial culture in detecting the pathogen, the molecular results are often inconsistent and challenged by doubts on false positives, such as those due to(More)
