BACKGROUND We evaluated the reliability and accuracy of the combined use of matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) bacterial identification and Vitek 2 antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) for bacteria from positive blood culture bottles. METHODS Direct identification and AST were performed in(More)
Here, we introduce a nanopatternable hydrophilic composite elastomer highly desirable for both nanostructure patterning via solvent-assisted micromolding (SAMIM) and microcontact printing of polar inks. This composite precursor is prepared by blending two UV-curable materials, Norland Optical Adhesives (NOA) 63 and poly(ethylene glycol) diacrylate (PEGDA),(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has a high morbidity and mortality rate worldwide, with limited treatment options. Glypican-3 (GPC3) is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored glycoprotein that is overexpressed in most HCC tissues but not in normal tissues. GPC3-targeting antibody therapy shows limited response in a clinical trial due to the lack of a(More)
BACKGROUND Antimitochondrial antibody (AMA) is a specific serologic marker in primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC). The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical relevance of combined AMA assays. METHODS Sera were obtained from 79 patients with PBC and 108 patients with other liver disease. They were tested by indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) using rat(More)
