Iron uptake in Morganella morganii, mediated by the fungal siderophore rhizoferrin, was studied. A Mud1 insertion mutant devoid of growth on ferric rhizoferrin was complemented by a chromosomal DNA fragment of M. morganii that encoded an outer membrane protein and a periplasmic protein named RumA and RumB (for rhizoferrin uptake into Morganella spp.),(More)

Peripheral intravenous (PIV) infiltrations causing tissue damage is a global issue surrounded by situations that make vascular access decisions difficult. The purpose of this quality improvement project was to develop an algorithm and assess its effectiveness in reducing PIV infiltrations in neonates. The targeted subjects were all infants in our neonatal(More)
