The incidence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has been increasing yearly at Peking Union Medical College Hospital (PUMCH). In order to understand the molecular evolution of MRSA at PUMCH, a total of 466 nonduplicate S. aureus isolates, including 302 MRSA and 164 methicillin-susceptible (MSSA) isolates recovered from 1994 to 2008 were… (More)
AIM To evaluate the effect of defined mutations in the major OmpK35 and OmpK36 porins in Klebsiella pneumoniae on the activity of two common plasmid-mediated AmpC enzymes. METHODS Naturally occurring conjugative plasmids containing bla(DHA-1) and bla(CMY-2) were obtained from K. pneumoniae isolates in western Sydney. These were moved into K. pneumoniae… (More)
Investigation of plasmid-borne AmpC β-lactamase genes in Escherichia coli and Klebsiella spp. revealed blaCMY-2-like genes predominantly in E. coli and blaDHA genes equally distributed between both species. This distribution remained stable over time, but blaACT/MIR-like genes, initially common in Klebsiella spp., were not identified in more recent isolates.
The goal of this study is to propose a reliability centered predictive maintenance scheme for a complex structure Inertial Navigation System (INS) with several redundant components. GO Methodology is applied to build the INS reliability analysis model—GO chart. Components Remaining Useful Life (RUL) and system reliability are updated dynamically based on… (More)
