We evaluated the performance of the Verigene Gram-Negative Blood Culture Nucleic Acid Test (BC-GN; Nanosphere, Northbrook, IL, USA), an automated multiplex assay for rapid identification of positive blood cultures caused by 9 Gram-negative bacteria (GNB) and for detection of 9 genes associated with β-lactam resistance. The BC-GN assay can be performed(More)
A 70-year-old man with a history of tongue cancer presented with Fournier's gangrene caused by Listeria monocytogenes serotype 4b. Surgical debridement revealed undiagnosed rectal adenocarcinoma. The patient did not have an apparent dietary or travel history but reported daily consumption of sashimi (raw fish). Old age and immunodeficiency due to rectal(More)
We consider an online job scheduling problem on a single machine with precedence constraints under uncertainty. In this problem, for each trial t = 1,. .. , T , the player chooses a total order (permutation) of n fixed jobs satisfying some prefixed precedence constraints. Then, the adversary determines the processing time for each job, 9 and the player(More)
BACKGROUND Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is a highly prevalent hospital-associated infection. Although most patients respond well to discontinuation of antibiotics, 20%-30% of patients relapse. To initiate early therapeutic measures, the risk factors for recurrent CDI must be identified, although very few Japanese studies have used standard(More)
Yeast with pseudohyphae or those that have been phagocytized by white blood cells are coincidentally found in peripheral blood smears. The clinical diagnostic value and outcome of candidaemia diagnosed from peripheral blood smears (CPBSs) are unclear. A 45-year-old man with diabetes and panhypopituitarism for 20 years received 10 mg of hydrocortisone and(More)
The ciliary zonule in the eye, also known as Zinn's zonule, is composed of oxytalan fibers, which are bundles of microfibrils consisting mainly of fibrillin-1. However, it is still unclear which of the microfibril-associated molecules present in the ciliary zonule controls oxytalan fibers. Microfibril-associated glycoprotein-1 (MAGP-1) is the only(More)
