UTI is one of the most common infectious diseases in clinical settings. Though Escherichia coli is the most frequently isolated pathogen, the frequency of Staphylococcus aureus has increased over time along with the corresponding increase in the occurrence of MRSA. The knowledge of prevalent strains of MRSA and their antibiotic susceptibility pattern is(More)
BACKGROUND Lower respiratory tract infections (LRTIs) are the most frequent infections among patients in Intensive care units (ICUs). AIMS To know the bacterial profile and determine the antibiotic susceptibility pattern of the lower respiratory tract isolates from patients admitted to the ICU. SETTINGS AND DESIGN Tertiary care hospital, retrospective(More)

There is close proximity of vitreous humor with the tumor bulk in eyes with retinoblastoma. This renders vitreous humor a promising source to evaluate disease-specific protein targets in retinoblastoma. We studied the differential proteome of vitreous fluid in retinoblastoma tumors (n = 4) as compared to controls (n = 4). The vitreous humor was depleted off(More)
