DNA fingerprinting has demonstrated predominance of the Beijing genotype among Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains isolated in Southeast Asia. We prospectively examined the occurrence of Beijing genotype strains in tuberculosis patients in Indonesia. Early in treatment, patients infected with Beijing genotype strains more often had fever unrelated to disease(More)
Streptococcus pneumoniae is a diverse species causing invasive as well as localized infections that result in massive global morbidity and mortality. Strains vary markedly in pathogenic potential, but the molecular basis is obscured by the diversity and plasticity of the pneumococcal genome. In the present study, S. pneumoniae serotype 3 blood (n = 12) or(More)
Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of human casualty in the world as reported by World Health Organization (WHO). To facilitate in minimizing this cause, constant monitoring of the heart's rhythm appears to be essential in observing the condition of the heart by checking or recording the Electrocardiogram (ECG) signal. This paper presents a prototype(More)

We have previously reported that S. pneumoniae serotype 3 isolates(More)
Sir, We read with interest the paper by Pacella et al. on ultrasound-guided percutaneous laser ablation of liver tissue in a rabbit model [1]. This technique, which we call interestitial laser photocoagulation (ILP), was first described in 1983 [2], and several groups have since performed experimental animal studies. We have also applied this technique(More)

Diode lasers are now capable of delivering up to 60 W of power down thin optical fibres, and their medical applications have increased considerably over the past 5 years. Most of the recent experimental and clinical work has been performed using the 805 nm diode laser wavelength, which is more heavily absorbed and is less penetrating than the 1064 nm Nd-YAG(More)
