Antibody-dependent SARS coronavirus infection is mediated by antibodies against spike proteins
Abstract The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) still carries the potential for reemergence, therefore efforts are being made to create a vaccine as a prophylactic strategyExpand
Clonal spread of SCCmec type IV methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus between community and hospital.
The staphylococcal chromosome cassette (SCC)mec types of 382 hospital-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (HA-MRSA) isolates in Taiwan were analysed over a 7-year period (1999-2005).Expand
Fusidic Acid Resistance Determinants in Staphylococcus aureus Clinical Isolates
ABSTRACT A total of 71 fusidic acid-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (45 methicillin-resistant and 26 methicillin-susceptible) isolates were examined for the presence of resistance determinants. AmongExpand
The Contribution of Antibiotic Resistance Mechanisms in Clinical Burkholderia cepacia Complex Isolates: An Emphasis on Efflux Pump Activity
Due to the limited information of the contribution of various antibiotic resistance mechanisms in clinical Burkholderia cepacia complex isolates, Antibiotic resistance mechanisms, including integronExpand
Topical simvastatin promotes healing of Staphylococcus aureus‐contaminated cutaneous wounds
Cutaneous wounds are prompt to be contaminated by bacteria, but the clinical benefits of applying antibiotics and antiseptics in wound management have not been proven. Statins areExpand
PCR-RFLP assay for species and subspecies differentiation of the Streptococcus bovis group based on groESL sequences.
The sequence diversity of groESL genes among Streptococcus bovis group isolates was analysed, including five reference strains and 36 clinical isolates. Phylogenetic analysis of the groES and groELExpand
Update on fosfomycin-modified genes in Enterobacteriaceae.
The long-used antibiotic fosfomycin has recently been re-evaluated as a potential regimen for treating extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs) and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE).Expand
Distribution of emm Types and Genetic Characterization of the mgc Locus in Group G Streptococcus dysgalactiae subsp. equisimilis from a Hospital in Northern Taiwan
ABSTRACT A total of 274 Streptococcus dysgalactiae subsp. equisimilis isolates was analyzed by emm typing and by determining the organization of their mgrC loci. Three of the most frequent emm typesExpand
Toluidine blue O photodynamic inactivation on multidrug‐resistant pseudomonas aeruginosa
Multidrug‐resistant (MDR) Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection is becoming a critical problem worldwide. Currently, only limited therapeutic options are available for the treatment of infections causedExpand
