Global spread and evolutionary links of an epidemic Clostridium difficile strain (PCR-ribotype 027) have been noted in recent decades. However, in Japan, no outbreaks caused by type 027 have been… Continue Reading
Laboratory underdiagnosis of toxigenic Clostridium difficile can lead to inappropriate management of C. difficile infection (CDI). A fully automated molecular test (FAMT), BD MAX, and enzyme… Continue Reading
Clostridioides (Clostridium) difficile is the leading cause of healthcare-associated infectious diarrhea in the developed world. Retrospective studies have shown a lower incidence of C. difficile… Continue Reading
The conformation of a single poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) chain was studied by scanning near-field optical microscopy (SNOM). Here we discuss the conformation of PMMA in the confined geometry of… Continue Reading
We have developed a method for the detection of the endonuclease III reaction by fluorescence. The probes were 13-base-pair hairpin-shaped oligonucleotides containing one of the isomers of thymine… Continue Reading
BACKGROUND The optimal and practical laboratory diagnostic approach for detection of Clostridioides difficile to aid in the diagnosis of C. difficile infection (CDI) is controversial. A two-step… Continue Reading
