Functional diversity of Legionella pneumophila Dot/Icm Effector SdhA in Galleria mellonella model
The main objective of this study was to determine if the role of the crucial virulence-related Dot/Icm T4BSS effector SdhA induced different levels of virulence among unrelated L. pneumophila strains in Galleria mellonella infection. Expand
What is the risk of missing legionellosis relying on urinary antigen testing solely? A retrospective Belgian multicenter study
Molecular results of Legionella detection as part of a first-line (syndromic) testing algorithm for severe respiratory tract infections were investigated retrospectively and compared with UAT results in 14 Belgian laboratories to investigate the risk of missing legionellosis relying on UAT solely.
