Infections with oseltamivir-resistant influenza A(H1N1) virus in the United States.
Oseltamivir-resistant A(H1N1) viruses circulated widely in the United States during the 2007-2008 influenza season, appeared to be unrelated to oseltAMivir use, and appeared to cause illness similar to oselstamIVir-susceptible A( H1N 1) viruses. Expand
Insects: Their Natural History and Diversity: With a Photographic Guide to Insects of Eastern North America
The photographs in this encyclopedic reference were taken in the field -- and are not pinned specimens, so readers can identify most insects quickly and accurately. Expand
Staphylococcus aureus and coagulase-negative staphylococci from blood stream infections: frequency of occurrence, antimicrobial susceptibility, and molecular (mecA) characterization of oxacillin
These studies have demonstrated both a high level of antimicrobial resistance among nosocomial blood stream isolates of staphylococci as well as significant problems with the current NCCLS breakpoints for oxacillin when testing CoNS. Expand

Detection of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing strains by the Etest ESBL screen.
The Etest ESBL screen test with the ceftazidime substrate appears to be a useful method for detecting or validating the presence of enteric bacilli potentially producing this type of beta-lactamase. Expand
Comparison of Cefoxitin and Oxacillin Disk Diffusion Methods for Detection of mecA-Mediated Resistance in Staphylococcus aureus in a Large-Scale Study
This study validated the new cefoxitin breakpoints for the detection of mecA-mediated resistance in S. aureus with high sensitivity and specificity compared to those of oxacillin. Expand
The use of Cerceris fumipennis (Hymenoptera: Crabronidae) for surveying and monitoring emerald ash borer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) infestations in eastern North America
This wasp provides a unique opportunity to survey indigenous and nonindigenous buprestid diversity and the accessibility, sustainability, and productivity of C. fumipennis with respect to its application as a buPrestid surveying and monitoring tool. Expand
New species without dead bodies: a case for photo-based descriptions, illustrated by a striking new species of Marleyimyia Hesse (Diptera, Bombyliidae) from South Africa
A new bombyliid species Marleyimyia xylocopae Marshall & Evenhuis, sp. Expand
UbiX is a flavin prenyltransferase required for bacterial ubiquinone biosynthesis
The mechanism for formation of a new flavin-derived cofactor required for the decarboxylase activity of UbiD is established, extending both flavin and terpenoid biochemical repertoires. Expand
Characteristics of Patients with Oseltamivir-Resistant Pandemic (H1N1) 2009, United States
During April 2009–June 2010, thirty-seven (0.5%) of 6,740 pandemic (H1N1) 2009 viruses submitted to a US surveillance system were oseltamivir resistant. Most patients with oseltamivir-resistantExpand
