Staphylococcus hominis is a commensal coagulase-negative species of staphylococci. It has been considered a presumptive and opportunistic pathogen that causes nosocomial infections in humans. Here we present the draft genome sequence of S. hominis ZBW5, a multidrug-resistant strain isolated from a human skin sample, which provides opportunities to(More)
Community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) are increasingly causing infective endocarditis over the past decade. Here we report a healthy man who developed a severe acute infective endocarditis with systemic embolism caused by CA-MRSA. The strain was recovered from repeated blood cultures and was characterized using molecular(More)
Tigecycline (Tgc) is considered a last-resort antibiotic for the treatment of multi-drug resistant bacteria. To study Tgc resistance development in the important nosocomial pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii, we adopted six clinical isolates from three patients undergoing antibiotic treatment, and bacterial genomic sequences and seven strand-specific(More)
An high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry method has been optimised and established for the quality evaluation of the traditional Chinese medicine Dan Deng Tong Nao capsules through simultaneous determination of the following eight active components: danshensu, salvianolic acid A, salvianolic acid C, puerarin, scutellarin, apigenin,(More)
