Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (M. hyopneumoniae) causes a chronic respiratory disease with high morbidity and low mortality in swine, and has been presented as a major cause of growth retardation in the swine industry. Aerosol vaccination presents a needle free, high throughput, and efficient platform for vaccine delivery, and has been widely applied in poultry(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the etiology and clinical characteristics of hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) in China and to provide evidence for appropriate therapy. METHODS We performed a prospective multicenter study in 13 Chinese urban tertiary hospitals. All HAP cases diagnosed at respiratory general ward and respiratory intensive care unit (RICU) from(More)
BACKGROUND Streptococcus pneumoniae (S. pneumoniae) is a major causative agent of severe infections, including sepsis, pneumonia, meningitis, and otitis media, and has become a major public health concern. We report the pneumococcal serotype and sequence type (ST) distribution, and antimicrobial resistance of 39 S. pneumoniae strains from seven hospitals in(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the pathogen profile of nosocomial infection in China, and to survey the susceptibility rates of these pathogens to the clinical common antibiotics. METHODS The non-repetitive nosocomial pathogens isolated from bloodstream infection (BSI), hospital acquired pneumonia (HAP) and intra-abdominal infection (IAI) and the case data were(More)
BACKGROUND Acinetobacter baumanii (A. baumanii ) remains an important microbial pathogen resulting in nosocomial acquired infections with significant morbidity and mortality. The mechanism by which nosocomial bacteria, like A. baumanii, attain multidrug resistance to antibiotics is of considerable interest. The aim in this study was to investigate the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the trends of resistance of S. pneumoniae and to evaluate the potential coverage of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine. METHODS The antibiotic susceptibility and serotype distribution of 471 pneumococcal strains isolated from pneumococcal diseases in 13 hospitals across China during 2010 to 2011 were studied. In vitro susceptibility(More)
Background and Objectives: Increased expression of the CD97, nuclear factor-kB (NF-kB) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) has been found to play an important role in development of many cancers, including gastric neoplasm. However, the expression and biological behavior of CD97, NF-kB and COX-2 in gastric MALT (mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue) lymphoma has not(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the in vitro activity of daptomycin against 2679 Gram-positive cocci. METHODS A total of 2679 non-duplicate Gram-positive cocci isolates were collected from 17 teaching hospitals during January, 2010 and December, 2011. The minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of daptomycin and other anti-microbial agents against 4 Gram-positive(More)
