Analysis of the Vaginal Microbiome by Next-Generation Sequencing and Evaluation of its Performance as a Clinical Diagnostic Tool in Vaginitis
Background Next-generation sequencing (NGS) can detect many more microorganisms of a microbiome than traditional methods. This study aimed to analyze the vaginal microbiomes of Korean women by usingExpand
First Korean Case of Helcococcus kunzii Bacteremia in a Patient with Diabetes
Dear Editor Members of the Helcococcus genus are non-motile, catalase-negative, facultatively anaerobic gram-positive cocci. To date, a total of 5 species have been assigned to Helcococcus,Expand
In Vitro Activity of Tedizolid Against Gram-Positive Bacteria in Patients With Skin and Skin Structure Infections and Hospital-Acquired Pneumonia: A Korean Multicenter Study
We compared the activities of tedizolid to those of linezolid and other commonly used antimicrobial agents against gram-positive cocci recovered from patients with skin and skin structure infectionsExpand

First Korean Case of Mycobacterium arupense Tenosynovitis
Mycobacterium arupense, a slow-growing nontuberculous mycobacterium (NTM), was first isolated from clinical samples in 2006 [1]. It is a member of the M. terrae complex, which includes M. arupense,Expand
Performance of Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time-of-Fight Mass Spectrometry for Rapid Discrimination of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA): First Report of a Relation
Dear Editor, Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) is widely applied for the rapid identification of bacterial species [1]. However, anExpand
Use of MALDI-TOF MS technique for rapid identification of bacteria from positive blood cultures.
We evaluated the feasibility of same-day routine aerobic bacterial identification using the following procedures: Picking colonies from 4 and 6 h incubated subculture from positive blood cultureExpand
The First Case of Eggerthella lenta Bacteremia in Korea
Eggerthella lenta, previously Eubacterium lentum, is a non-motile, non-spore-forming anaerobic gram-positive bacillus. In 1999, the designation Eggerthella gen. nov. (named in honor of ArnoldExpand
NVP-BEZ235, a dual PI3K/mTOR inhibitor synergistically potentiates the antitumor effects of cisplatin in bladder cancer cells
The PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway is a prototypic survival pathway and constitutively activated in many malignant conditions. Moreover, activation of the PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway confers resistance to variousExpand
Effects of ovariectomy and oestrogen replacement on the function and expression of Rho‐kinase in rat bladder smooth muscle
To investigate the effects of ovariectomy and oestrogen replacement on the function and expression of Rho‐kinase in rat bladder smooth muscle, as the actual effects of oestrogen deprivation onExpand
