BACKGROUND AmpC type β-lactamases are commonly isolated from extended-spectrum Cephalosporin-resistant Gram-negative bacteria. Also, resistance appeared in bacterial species not naturally producing AmpC enzymes. Therefore, a standard test for the detection of the plasmid-mediated AmpC enzyme and new breakpoints for extended spectrum Cephalosporins are(More)
BACKGROUND Clarithromycin is a main component of the recommended first-line triple therapy for Helicobacter pylori in Egypt. We aimed in our study to investigate the prevalence of clarithromycin-resistant H. pylori strains due to the point mutations at domain V of the H. pylori 23S rRNA among the Egyptian population using the polymerase chain(More)
Cytokines play a central role in regulating the anti-viral responses against hepatitis C virus (HCV). The objective of this study were to evaluate the effect of proinflammatory cytokines (IL-18 − 607 C/A, rs 1946518; IL-18 − 137 G/C, rs 187283; INF-γ + 874 T/A, rs 240561), SNPs, and the anti-inflammatory cytokine (IL-10 + 1082 G/A, rs 1800896) SNPs on the(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Helicobacter pylori infection is common in Egypt. It has been associated with gastritis, ulcers and it is a risk factor for gastric cancer. We aimed to study the correlation between the presence of H. pylori virulence factors and the histopathological and endoscopic findings in gastric biopsies. PATIENTS AND METHODS Gastric(More)
