Nosocomial pneumococcal bacteremia.
TLDR
Pneumococcal vaccination should be incorporated in a hospital-based prevention program for high-risk patients, and mixed pneumococcal bacteremia with gram-negative bacilli was more frequent in nosocomial infections. Expand
Phenotypic characteristics of Branhamella catarrhalis strains
TLDR
Data suggest that important differences exist among clinically significant B. catarrhalis strains and that these differences may be due to differences in the cell wall envelope of the organism. Expand
In vitro susceptibilities and beta-lactamase production of 53 clinical isolates of Branhamella catarrhalis
TLDR
All the strains of Branhamella catarrhalis recovered from patients with respiratory symptoms were susceptible to the majority of the new penicillins and cephalosporins, and the combinations of amoxacillin-clavulanic acid and ticarcillin-ClavULanic acid were also very active against the beta-lactamase-producing strains.

Gastric Microbial Flora in Patients With Gastrointestinal Disease
TLDR
It is found that patients with gastric ulcer disease had a significantly higher incidence of bacterial growth than those with duodenal ulcer and patients who had had gastrectomy were more likely than any others to have gram-negative bacilli in their stomach. Expand
Clinical and microbiologic consequences of amikacin use during a 42-month period.
TLDR
A 3 1/2-year period of almost exclusive amikacin usage noted a fall in overall resistance of gram-negative organisms to tobramycin and gentamicin from 18.8% and 19.3% to 15.2% and 16.2%, respectively. Expand
Type 8 Pneumococcal Pneumonia: An Outbreak on an Oncology Ward
An outbreak of four cases of type 8 Streptococcus pneumoniae pneumonia occurred on an Oncology Ward during a five-day period. All four patients had underlying malignancy and were in close proximityExpand
Selective medium with DNase test agar and a modified toluidine blue O technique for primary isolation of Branhamella catarrhalis in sputum
TLDR
A selective medium with DNase test agar and incorporating vancomycin, trimethoprim, and amphotericin B supported the growth of 305 Branhamella catarrhalis isolates, which will be particularly useful for culture of sputum, which shows inflammatory cells and gram-negative diplococci on Gram-stained smears. Expand
In vitro interactions of amikacin and beta-lactam antibiotics against amikacin-resistant gram-negative bacilli.
TLDR
Ceftazidime plus amikacin was the most active combination by the checkerboard technique, while amkacin-cefoperazone was themost active combinationBy the time-killing curve technique against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Expand
In vitro activity of cefpodoxime proxetil (U-76,252; CS-807) against clinical isolates of Branhamella catarrhalis
TLDR
The drug was highly active against beta-lactamase-negative and -positive isolates; 99% of all strains tested showed a cefpodoxime proxetil MIC of less than or equal to 2.0 micrograms/ml. Expand
