PURPOSE An outbreak of gram-negative bacteremia in patients undergoing endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) was investigated to determine the sources of infection and to control transmission. PATIENTS, METHODS, AND RESULTS The incidence of post-ERCP bacteremia increased from 1.6% (60 of 3,696) procedures to 3.6% (53 of 1,454) procedures(More)
Calretinin (Cr) is a Ca2+ binding protein present in various populations of neurons distributed in the central and peripheral nervous systems. We have generated Cr-deficient (Cr-/-) mice by gene targeting and have investigated the associated phenotype. Cr-/- mice were viable, and a large number of morphological, biochemical, and behavioral parameters were(More)
Genome macrorestriction fingerprinting with XbaI and DraI was used to analyze the relatedness of 166 Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates collected from 31 cystic fibrosis patients over a 1- to 20-month period and to correlate their genotype with patterns of resistance to 14 antimicrobial agents. Quantitative comparison of intra- and interpatient similarities of(More)
