OBJECTIVES The Helicobacter pylori virulence-associated genes in hepatobiliary patients, including vacA, iceA, babA2, cagA and cagE, have not been reported. The aim of this study was to investigate these genes and the association of those and the clinical outcomes in hepatobiliary diseases. METHODS Eighty H. pylori-PCR-positive cases were obtained from(More)
The aims of this study were to develop multiplex PCR for simultaneous detection of five superantigenic toxin genes (sea, seb, sec, sed and tst-1) in Staphylococcus aureus isolated from 149 clinical samples and nasal swabs from 201 healthy subjects in Thailand, and to compare prevalence and expression of those genes between methicillin-resistant S. aureus(More)
Salmonella and Shigella spp are important causative agents of foodborne diseases. A sensitive, specific and rapid method is essential for detection of these pathogens. In this study, a duplex PCR method was developed for simultaneous detection of Salmonella and Shigella spp in cockle samples and compared with the traditional culture method. Enrichment(More)
A total of 84 clinical Vibrio cholerae O1 isolates were collected from Khon Kaen (KK), Udon Thani (UT), Loei (LI), and Nong Khai (NK), northeastern Thailand during cholera outbreaks in 2007 and 2008. The majority of V. cholerae O1 strains carried nearly all the virulence-associated genes (ctxA, zot, and ace) except for four isolates and one isolate from UT(More)
Abstract. Detection of toxigenic Vibrio cholerae O1/O139 in aquatic environment is difficult to achieve using the culture method. For direct detection of viable toxigenic V. cholerae in aquatic environment, we developed a triplex reverse transcription (RT)-PCR, targeting genes for the outer membrane protein (ompW), cholera toxin A (ctxA) and(More)
Toxigenic Staphylococcus aureus contamination of ready-to-eat (RTE) foods is a leading cause of foodborne illness in Thailand. From 151 RTE food samples randomly collected from food vendors and food shops in Khon Kaen municipality, Thailand and after culture-based identification of S. aureus isolates, pentaplex PCR was used for simultaneous detection of(More)
LETTERS was the same genome type as and was highly homologous with the H5N6 virus in Laos. The findings in this study are also supported by the previous genetic characterization of these viruses by Wong et al. (11). However, the adaptation, host range, and virulence of this reassortant H5N6 virus are still unclear and should be further investigated.(More)
A tetraplex PCR method was developed for simultaneous detection of Vibrio cholerae, V. parahaemolyticus, V. vulnificus and V. mimicus in cockle samples in comparison with conventional culture method. Specific primers targeting ompW of V. cholerae, tl of V. parahaemolyticus, hsp60 of V. vulnificus and sodB of V. mimicus were employed in the same PCR.(More)
