BACKGROUND The treatment of patients with MDR- and XDR-TB is usually more complex, toxic and costly and less effective than treatment of other forms of TB. However, there is little information available on risk factors for poor outcomes in patients with MDR- and XDR-TB in China. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We retrospectively analyzed the clinical(More)
Binucleate Rhizoctonia (BNR) spp. isolates were collected from taro (Colocasia esculenta (L.) Schott) and ginger (Zingiber officinale (Willd.) Roscoe) (Yunnanxiaojiang cv.) in Yunnan province. These Yunnan (YN) isolates did not anastomose with any of the tester isolates of the known AGs of binucleate Rhizoctonia spp. The growth of YN cultures on PDA was(More)
The complete genome sequence of a novel dsRNA virus isolated from Rhizoctonia fumigata AG-Ba isolate C-314 Baishi (designated as Rhizoctonia fumigata virus 1, RfV1) was determined. The RfV1 genome was 9,907 bp in length and contained two open reading frames (ORFs). ORF1 potentially coded for a 198.10-kDa protein (P1). P1 shared low but significant amino(More)
This study aimed to explore the influence of pyrazinamide (PZA) monoresistance on the treatment outcome of otherwise drug susceptible tuberculosis (TB). A cohort of 194 TB patients that were infected with strains susceptible to isoniazid (INH), rifampin (RIF) and ethambutol (EMB) were included in a retrospective study at the Guangzhou Chest Hospital. We(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the clinical characteristics of rifampin-dependent (R-dependent Mycobacterium tuberculosis) and rifampin-resistant (R-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis) patients with pulmonary tuberculosis. METHODS The clinical data including the demographic data, age groups, course of disease, history of chemotherapy with anti-TB drugs, and(More)
OBJECTIVE To study regimens containing isoniazid and rifampicin for the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis with isoniazid or rifampicin resistance. METHODS Eighty patients with isoniazid or rifampicin resistance, and whose sputum were still positive at the end of 2-month therapy with isoniazid (H), rifampicin (R), pyrazineamide (Z) and ethambutol (E),(More)
Clinical characteristics of tuberculosis (TB) patients from southern China with pulmonary tuberculosis hemoptysis (PTH) were analyzed retrospectively in order to improve the diagnosis of TB, reduce mortality and prevent the transmission of TB. A total of 1227 cases of pulmonary TB patients hospitalized in the Third Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen(More)
The side effects of chemotherapy drugs have increased in recent years, and some side effects can lead to onychomadesis. A 72-year-old woman who was diagnosed with an invasive ductal carcinoma of the right breast underwent a modified radical mastectomy in April 2015, followed by chemotherapy with capecitabine and nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel(More)
