Candida albicans Als1p: an adhesin that is a downstream effector of the EFG1 filamentation pathway
Als1p expression is controlled by the transcription factor Efg1p, which is known to be a key regulator of filamentation in C. albicans and functions as a downstream effector of the EFG1 filamentation pathway, and it is found that Als1 p mediates both flocculation and adherence of C.Albicans to endothelial cells in vitro.
Clinical Manifestations, Laboratory Findings, and Treatment Outcomes of SARS Patients
Underlying disease and initial CRP level were predictive of death by multivariate analysis, and common abnormal laboratory findings included leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, and elevated levels of aminotransferase, lactate dehydrogenase, and creatine kinase.
Identification of a novel protein 3a from severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus
SARS in Hospital Emergency Room
Observations indicate that although transmission by direct contact with known SARS patients was responsible for most cases, environmental contamination with the SARS coronavirus may have lead to infection among healthcare workers without documented contact withknown hospitalized SARS Patients.
Effectiveness and Limitations of Hand Hygiene Promotion on Decreasing Healthcare–Associated Infections
Implementation of a HHP reduces preventable HAIs and is cost effective, and the disease severity score increased during the intervention period, but there was no discernable impact on HAI rates in the hematology/oncology wards.
Detection of SARS-associated Coronavirus in Throat Wash and Saliva in Early Diagnosis
Early detection of SARS-CoV in throat wash and saliva suggests that these specimens are ideal for SARS diagnosis.

The need to focus on genospecies to better understand the pathogenesis and epidemiology of infections caused by the A. baumannii complex was emphasized and was associated with greater resistance to antibiotics and higher mortality among bacteremic patients, compared with other genos pecies, especially genosPecies 13TU.

In vitro experiments modeling infection in humans together with the study of a lung biopsy of a patient who died during the early phase of infection demonstrated that SARS-CoV, through a dynamic interaction with lung epithelial cells and monocytic cells, creates an environment conducive for immune cell migration and accumulation that eventually leads to lung injury.
