The aim of this study was to determine the antifungal susceptibility profile and to detect resistant strains of yeast species isolated from neonates in Intensive Care Units. 92 strains isolated from 25 bloodstream cultures, 20 venous catheters, 23 suprapubic aspirations and 24 rectal swabs were studied. A Candida glabrata strain resistant to fluconazole was(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the distribution and antifungal susceptibility profile of yeast species isolated from neonates in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) in northeast of Argentina. With this purpose 92 strains isolated from 25 blood stream cultures, 20 venous catheters, 23 suprapubic aspirations and 24 rectal swabs were studied. Candida(More)
BACKGROUND In critically ill children, Candida species and other yeasts appear as an important nosocomial pathogen. The emerging fungal pathogens are usually less susceptible to azole compounds, and the management of such infections could be problematic. METHODS 6,065 bloodstream cultures and 627 catheters from intensive care units and hospitalized(More)
BACKGROUND There is evidence that positive personality characteristics, such as optimism and self-esteem, are important for health. Less is known about possible determinants of positive personality characteristics. PURPOSE To test the relationship of optimism and self-esteem with insomnia symptoms and sleep duration. METHOD Sleep parameters, optimism,(More)
We report the results of a choice-experiment study to model preferences over a selection of breed traits of 'creole' pigs. The study was conducted amongst households of backyard producers and small farmers rearing this local breed in Yucatan, Mex-ico. Hypothetical choice data were collected to estimate the preference of households over alternative pigs(More)
—Automatic and advanced merging algorithms help programmers to merge their modifications in main development repositories. However, there is little support to help release masters (integrators) to take decisions about the integration of published merged changes into the system release. Most of the time, the release master has to read all the changed code,(More)
The World Health Organization (WHO) Multicentre Growth Reference Study (MGRS) African site was Accra, Ghana. Its sample was drawn from 10 affluent residential areas where earlier research had demonstrated the presence of a child subpopulation with unconstrained growth. This subpopulation could be identified on the basis of the father's education and(More)
Source code management systems record different versions of code. Tool support can then compute deltas between versions. To ease version history analysis we need adequate models to represent source code entities. Now naturally the questions of their definition, the abstractions they use, and the APIs of such models are raised, especially in the context of a(More)
BACKGROUND Phylogeographic composition of M. tuberculosis populations reveals associations between lineages and human populations that might have implications for the development of strategies to control the disease. In Latin America, lineage 4 or the Euro-American, is predominant with considerable variations among and within countries. In Colombia,(More)
