Differential time to positivity and quantitative cultures for noninvasive diagnosis of catheter-related blood stream infection in children
(Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, 2008)
Background: Accurate diagnosis of catheter-related blood stream infection (CRBSI) is necessary to make a decision about removal of the catheter. Differential time to positivity (DTP) and the ratio of quantitative cultures ...
Antifungal susceptibility of 50 Candida isolates from invasive mycoses in Chile
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2004-06)
We determined the antifungal susceptibility of 50 Candida isolates from invasive mycoses in intensive care unit patients in Chile. Candida albicans (27 isolates) and C parapsilosis (12 isolates) were the most common etiologic ...
Invasive fungal infections in Chile: a multicenter study of fungal prevalence and susceptibility during a 1-year period
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2004-08)
During the first year of an ongoing surveillance program of invasive fungal infections (IFI) a total of 130 patients (56% male) with fungal strains isolated from blood and other sterile sites were reported from 13 hospitals ...
Etiology of fungaemia and catheter colonisation in Argentinean paediatric patients
Yeast strains obtained from blood cultures and catheters from intensive care units (ICU) and hospitalised oncology paediatrics were studied. Yeast were the first cause of catheter colonisation (51/627), and the third cause ...
Epidemiology and predictors of a poor outcome in elderly patients with candidemia
Mast cell and eosinophils in the wall of the gut and eosinophils in the blood stream during Toxocara vitulorum infection of the water buffalo calves (Bubalus bubalis)
(Elsevier B.V., 2003-04-02)
Toxocara vitulorum is a pathogenic nematode from the small intestine of very young buffalo calves. To understand the development of the inflammatory responses in the wall of the gut, samples of tissues were removed from ...
