Multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains, which are notable nosocomial pathogens, have greatly increased the mortality rate of septicemic patients due to treatment failure. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of P. aeruginosa strain VRFPA02, a human bloodstream isolate that has phenotypically proven to be resistant to a broad spectrum of(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop and optimize polymerase chain reaction-based restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) targeting 18S rDNA and internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of fungi for rapid detection and identification of dermatophytes. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two PCR-RFLP methods targeting 18S rDNA and ITS regions of fungi were optimized using(More)
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in immunosuppressed transplant recipients. Isolation of HCMV from peripheral blood leukocytes (PBLs) is considered a reliable marker of disseminated HCMV infection. HCMV pp65 antigenemia is widely used for monitoring CMV infection and guiding preemptive therapy. The aim of this(More)
