Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a human pathogen that has diverse molecular heterogeneity. Most MRSA strains in the United States are pulsed-field gel electrophoresis USA100 sequence type (ST) 5 and USA300 ST8. Infections with MRSA ST239-III are common and found during health care-associated outbreaks. However, this strain has been(More)
(See the major article by Calderwood et al on pages 571–7.) Staphylococcus aureus has been referred to as the " persistent pathogen " [1, 2] owing to its high prevalence for decades, its cause of a significant burden of disease, and its ability to cause a wide spectrum of clinical infections at various sites, including skin and soft tissue, bone and joint,(More)
In this paper, we integrate CC2530 with Medical System based on ZigBee network technology. Bio-sensor and CC2530 chip in one module, which collects patient biosignal data and transmit the data to Medical Server by ZigBee network. The biosignal data in Medical System will be analyzed and displayed in visual platform. We focus on using the cluster tree ZigBee(More)
Improved screening and treatment of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) in correctional facilities may improve TB control. The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (ODRC) consists of 32 prisons. Inmates are screened upon entry to ODRC and yearly thereafter. The objective of the study was to determine if social history factors such as tobacco,(More)
Trajectory tracking is popularity in industrial procession, such as machining parts control, high automatic control for a roller of shearer cutting in memory mode, etc. In these cases, trajectory tracked was often artificially pre-determined, and essentially belongs to the fields of predictable control. There are still some shortages in the respect of(More)
BACKGROUND Successful treatment of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) is an important objective in the United States' strategy for tuberculosis (TB) control. We review the impact of demographic variables and community treatment upon completion of medical therapy of LTBI in a large pediatric cohort. METHODS We performed a retrospective analysis of(More)
