High Frequency of Antibiotic-Associated Diarrhea due to Toxin A-Negative, Toxin B-Positive Clostridium difficile in a Hospital in Japan and Risk Factors for Infection
Patients hospitalized in a hospital with a high incidence of antibiotic-associated diarrhea due to toxin A-negative, toxin B-positive (A−/B+) Clostridium difficile were retrospectively investigatedExpand
[In vitro susceptibilities to levofloxacin and various antibacterial agents of 12,919 clinical isolates obtained from 72 centers in 2007].
We have reported in this journal in vitro susceptibilities of clinical isolates to antibiotics every year since 1992. In this paper, we report the results of an analysis of in vitro susceptibilitiesExpand
[Detection of extended spectrum beta-lactamases producing Enterobacteriaceae in feces].
A study was made of 366 feces for detection of extended spectrum beta-lactamases producing Enterobacteriaceae from feces. The selective agar was used for modified drigalski agar (Eiken Chemical Co.,Expand
[In-vitro susceptibilites to levofloxacin and various antibacterial agents of 18,639 clinical isolates obtained from 77 centers in 2004].
A total of 18,639 clinical isolates in 19 species collected from 77 centers during 2004 in Japan were tested for their susceptibility to fluoroquinolones (FQs) and other selected antibiotics. TheExpand
[Clinical and pathological study of 34 patients with isolation of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in stool culture].
Clinical and pathological findings of 34 patients with isolation of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) from stools during the past one and half a year were studied. Twenty-threeExpand
[Application of the MIC breakpoints based on pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics parameter in the clinical laboratory].
The effectiveness of time-dependent antibiotics such as beta-lactams is related to the time above the MIC (TAM, %). We constructed a program to calculate the TAMs of beta-lactams using theExpand
[Rapid detection of Shiga-like toxin gene in feces with rapid-cycle polymerase chain reaction].
A rapid detection for Shiga-like toxin in feces was developed with the nucleic acid extraction method by silicondioxide-guanidine thiothianate and rapid-cycle polymerase chain reaction by RapidCyclerExpand
[Detection and identification method of three mycobacterium species and genus specific detection by polymerase chain reaction and DNA hybridization with alkaline phosphatase labeled oligonucleotide
Rapid detection and identification method of mycobacteria from specimen with infected mycobacteriosis was established by the combination of polymerase chain reaction and alkaline phosphatase labeledExpand
[Significance of Aspergillus fumigatus rDNA detected by polymerase chain reaction in diagnosis of pulmonary aspergillosis].
We have studied the clinical significance of Aspergillus fumigatus rDNA detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for diagnosing aspergillosis. For this purpose, a specific and sensitive PCR assayExpand
[Rapid detection of Escherichia coli 0157:H7 in feces by latex agglutination and immunochromatographic assay].
The rapid detection method of Escherichia coli O157 in feces by using the latex agglutination test kit (Prolex; Pro Lab Diagnostics) and the immunochromatic assay kit (NOW EH. E. coli; Binax) wasExpand
