—Spectral self-interference fluorescence microscopy (SSFM) has been recently developed to determine the axial position of fluorescent emitters placed on reflecting dielectric structures. In this paper, we review SSFM with emphasis on its axial localization capabilities. We show that there is a tradeoff between the numerical aperture (NA) of the microscopy(More)
AIM To elucidate the genetic basis for the pronounced resistance that the oral pathogen, Porphyromonas gingivalis (P. gingivalis), exhibits towards the cationic antimicrobial peptide, polymyxin B. METHODOLOGY A genetic screen of P. gingivalis clones generated by a Tn4400'-based random insertion mutagenesis strategy was performed to identify bacteria(More)
BACKGROUND To validate a new practical Sepsis Severity Score for patients with complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAIs) including the clinical conditions at the admission (severe sepsis/septic shock), the origin of the cIAIs, the delay in source control, the setting of acquisition and any risk factors such as age and immunosuppression. METHODS The(More)
Glomus tumors (GTs) are benign tumors originating from the glomus body which are usually solitary and small lesions. The vast majority are found in the distal extremities, particularly in the hand, wrist, foot and under the fingernails rarely involving visceral organs. Here we report a rare case of gastric GT presented to us with exsanguinating hematemesis(More)
Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a malignant tumour arising from the adrenal cortex, whereas pheochromocytoma is a tumour of the adrenal medulla with occasional presence at extra-adrenal sites. Most of the adrenocortical tumours present clinically with Cushing's syndrome and signs of virilization due to over-production of the respective hormones. It is,(More)
