First Three Reported Cases of Nosocomial Fungemia Caused by Candida auris
TLDR
The first three cases of nosocomial fungemia caused by C. auris are described, which confirms that it is a causative agent of bloodstream infections and emphasizes the importance of accurately identifying this species. Expand
Biofilm Production by Isolates of Candida Species Recovered from Nonneutropenic Patients: Comparison of Bloodstream Isolates with Isolates from Other Sources
TLDR
The capacity of Candida species isolates to produce biofilms in vitro in glucose-containing SDB may be a reflection of the pathogenic potential of these isolate to cause CVC-related fungemia in patients receiving parenteral nutrition. Expand
Candida haemulonii and closely related species at 5 university hospitals in Korea: identification, antifungal susceptibility, and clinical features.
TLDR
Candida species that are closely related to C. haemulonii are emerging sources of infection in Korea and show variable patterns of susceptibility to amphotericin B and azole antifungal agents. Expand
Gene flow contributes to diversification of the major fungal pathogen Candida albicans
TLDR
Evidence of gene flow between previously known and newly identified genetic clusters is found, supporting the occurrence of parasexuality in nature and thus C. albicans takes advantage of both clonality and gene flow to diversify. Expand
Genetic Diversity among Korean Candida albicans Bloodstream Isolates: Assessment by Multilocus Sequence Typing and Restriction Endonuclease Analysis of Genomic DNA by Use of BssHII
TLDR
The results indicate that REAG-B typing can be complementary to MLST but should be limited to the investigation of isolates of identical DSTs and when interhuman transmission is suspected. Expand
Early brain computed tomography findings are associated with outcome in patients treated with therapeutic hypothermia after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest
TLDR
It is demonstrated that low GWRs in the immediate brain CT scans of patients treated with therapeutic hypothermia after ROSC were associated with poor neurological outcomes, which could help predict outcome after cardiac arrest. Expand
Serum highly selective C-reactive protein concentration is associated with the volume of ischemic tissue in acute ischemic stroke.
TLDR
The results suggest that elevated hs-CRP levels, reflecting a large volume of infarct, may serve as a helpful serologic marker in the evaluation of severity of acute ischemic stroke. Expand
Species Distribution and Susceptibility to Azole Antifungals of Candida Bloodstream Isolates from Eight University Hospitals in Korea
TLDR
Findings show that C. albicans is the most common cause of Candida-related BSI, followed by C. parapsilosis, and that the rates of resistance to azole antifungals are still low among bloodstream isolates in Korea. Expand
Genetic variations in the PRKAA1 and ZBTB20 genes and gastric cancer susceptibility in a Korean population
TLDR
The study showed that the rs13361707 polymorphism was associated with increased risk of gastric cancer in a Korean population, and further evidence that genetic variant of PRKAA1 and PTGER4 genes may contribute to the gastric carcinogenesis was provided. Expand
Dissemination of IMP-6 metallo-β-lactamase-producing Pseudomonas aeruginosa sequence type 235 in Korea.
TLDR
P. aeruginosa ST235 carrying the chromosomally located bla(IMP-6) gene is widely disseminated in Korea, and all MBL-producing isolates showed similar XbaI-macrorestriction patterns, irrespective of MBL genotype. Expand
