L-forms have been shown to occur among many species of bacteria and are suspected to be involved in persistent infections. Since their discovery in 1935, numerous studies characterizing L-form morphology, growth, and pathogenic potential have been conducted. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the formation and survival of L-forms remain unknown.(More)
We performed pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (XbaI) on 114 bloodstream isolates of Salmonella enterica serotype Paratyphi A and S. enterica serotype Typhi collected from febrile patients in Kathmandu, Nepal. Of the 56 S. Paratyphi A isolates, 51 (91%) were indistinguishable, which suggests the emergence of a single clone. In contrast, only 21 (36%) of the(More)
Isoniazid (INH) resistance is most frequent among drug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis clinical isolates. This study was conducted to investigate whether INH could induce its own resistance. During INH susceptibility testing in BACTEC 12B and MGIT 960 media, weekly subcultures were made from the drug-containing media into fresh medium without drug and(More)
'Haemophilus quentini' has been proposed as the name for a distinct and homogeneous Haemophilus genospecies associated with urogenital tract and neonatal-related infections. Reports of 'H. quentini' isolation from adult men are rare and the disease potential in this population is unknown. We report six cases where 'H. quentini' was isolated from the(More)
Prior to the advent of the Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine, invasive infections due to H. influenzae type f were rarely described. However, the epidemiology of H. influenzae is changing. While the incidence of invasive infections due to H. influenzae is declining in children, such infections are becoming more common in adults, particularly in the(More)

In 2015, in addition to a United States multistate outbreak linked to contaminated ice cream, another outbreak linked to ice cream was reported in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. It was a hospital-acquired outbreak linked to milkshakes, made from contaminated ice cream mixes and milkshake maker, served to patients. Here we performed multiple(More)
Quantitative DNA detection of cytomegalovirus (CMV) and BK virus (BKV) is critical in the management of transplant patients. Quantitative laboratory-developed procedures for CMV and BKV have been described in which much of the processing is automated, resulting in rapid, reproducible, and high-throughput testing of transplant patients. To increase the(More)
