Carriage of ampicillin-resistant (Ampr) Haemophilus parainfluenzae has become frequent among children in our community, although carriage of Ampr Haemophilus influenzae remains uncommon. In this… Expand
Bacterial endotoxins in umbilical cord blood of neonates.
We tested umbilical cord blood from 255 infants for evidence of bacterial endotoxins. Using a Limulus lysate gelation technique, endotoxin-like activity (ELA) was detected in 13 (9.1%) of 142 term… Expand
Frequency of ampicillin-resistant Haemophilus parainfluenzae in children.
Ampicillin resistance has been described in Haemophilus species other than Haemophilus influenzae, but its frequency and significance are uncertain. In a throat-culture survey,… Expand
A survey of the flora of dental plaque in caries-free people in New Zealand.
The bacterial composition of supragingival plaque of six caries-free New Zealand subjects was studied. The main genera found were Actinomyces, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Veillonella, Bacteroides,… Expand
Evaluation of skin antisepsis prior to blood culture in neonates.
In our Intensive Care Nursery, coagulase-negative staphylococcus is the most frequent blood culture isolate. As skin antisepsis is critical in preventing blood culture contamination, we examined the… Expand
Acidogenic fermentation of pentose alcohols by human dental plaque microorganisms.
Abstract The potential non-cariogenicity of the pentose sugar alcohols xylitol, l -arabinitol and ribitol was estimated by determining their fermenting properties with 50 separate samples of dental… Expand
Mechanism of action of a two-tone plaque disclosing agent.
Ampicillin-resistant Haemophilus influenzae colonizing ambulatory children.
The prevalence of ampicillin sodium-resistant Haemophilus influenzae was determined from throat cultures of 305 ambulatory children. Resistant strains were detected in 3% of children, amounting to… Expand
