Healthy carriage of Staphylococcus aureus: its prevalence and importance.
Self-Infection in Carriers and Lesions, Cross-In infection from Carriers, Changes in carrier rate with age, and persistence of nasal carriage in different population groups are studied. Expand
Cost of Treating an Infected Total Knee Replacement
Based on all parameters measured, surgical treatment of the infected total knee implant required 3 to 4 times the resources of the hospital and the surgeon compared with a primary total knee implants and approximately twice the resources with a nonseptic revision total knee replacement. Expand
Diagnosis of lysosomal storage disorders: evaluation of lysosome-associated membrane protein LAMP-1 as a diagnostic marker.
The lysosome-associated membrane protein LAMP-1 may be a useful marker in newborn screening for LSDs and a sensitive method for the quantification of this protein with a time-resolved fluorescence immunoassay is developed. Expand
Phage typing of staphylococci.
A detailed account of methods that have been found satisfactory for propagating the phages are given and a standard testing routine by which the stability of the phage preparations can be verified is defined. Expand
The effect of prostatectomy on symptom severity and quality of life.
Prostatectomy is effective in reducing symptoms in most men and approximately one-third of men reported an unfavourable result 3 months after their operation. Expand
Aerococcus, a new bacterial genus.
Aerococcus is proposed for a group of aerobic Grampositive cocci that are commonly found in the air of occupied places and in dust and have ability to grow in the presence of 40 % bile and to produce greening on blood agar. Expand
Impetigo contagiosa; the association of certain types of Staphylococcus aureus and of Streptococcus pyogenes with superficial skin infections.
In an investigation of impetigo among troops, carried out in 1941, nearly half of the strains of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from the lesions had the ability to inhibit the growth ofExpand
IL-12 induces human T cells secreting IL-10 with IFN-gamma.
In human T cells, IL-12 induces concomitant secretion of IL-10 and IFN-gamma, demonstrating that a differentiated T cell clone could be induced to secrete both cytokines. Expand
The National Prostatectomy Audit: the clinical management of patients during hospital admission.
The clinical management of prostatectomy has been defined in a large and representative UK sample and in some circumstances consistent variations have been identified. Expand
Bacteria and aetiology of cancer of large bowel.
Faeces from people in the " Western " countries contained higher concentrations of steroids than those from the African and Eastern countries, and the steroids were also more degraded, consonant with the thesis that the intestinal bacteria may be aetiologically related to cancer of the colon. Expand
