OBJECTIVE: To determine comparative in vitro activity of sitafloxacin against clinical isolates of bacteria from Thai patients with urinary tract infection and those with lower respiratory tract infection. MATERIAL AND METHOD: 1,255 clinical isolates of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii, Enterococcus spp, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Haemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis isolated from different Thai patients with urinary tract infection and those with lower respiratory tract infection in 2010 were included...

BACKGROUND: Chlamydophila pneumoniae is an obligate intracellular bacterium that replicates in a biphasic life cycle within eukaryotic host cells. Four published genomes revealed an identity of > 99 %. This remarkable finding raised questions about the existence of distinguishable genotypes in correlation with geographical and anatomical origin. RESULTS: We studied the genetic diversity of C. pneumoniae by analysing synonymous single nucleotide polymorphisms (sSNPs) that are under reduced selection pressure...

We report 13 severely disabled children with acute respiratory distress syndrome, who were treated at the Department of Pediatrics, Niigata City General Hospital between 1995 and 2002. The children ranged in age from 1 year to 16 years. All were non-ambulant. Chronic aspiration and gastro-esophageal reflux were recognized in 12 patients. Patients had the rapid onset of dyspnea refractory to oxygen therapy. Diffuse bilateral lung infiltrates were present on chest X-ray. Predisposing events included sepsis (3 patients), pneumomia (7 patients), pancreatitis (1 patient) and two children with other infections...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the prevalence of Chlamydia pneumomia DNA in patients with otolaryngic disease. METHODS: PCR assay was used to detect Chlamydia pneumonia specific Pst I 474 fragment DNA in swabs from patients with acute or subacute pharyngolaryngitis or rhinitis and sinusitis. C. pneumonia specific antibodies in sera were also assayed with microimmuno-fluoresence (MIF). RESULTS: About 28% (49/175) of the patients were PCR positive and 25...

Streptococcus pneumoniae isolated at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin during the winter of 1994 to 1995 and the winter of 1996 to 1997 were tested for susceptibility to penicillin, cephalosporins and other potentially therapeutically useful antimicrobial agents to determine the prevalence of penicillin and multi-drug resistant isolates. During those years, the prevalence of S. pneumomiae not susceptible to penicillin was 27% and 28%, respectively, with 14% and 18%, respectively, of the respiratory isolates being high-level penicillin resistant...

The sensitivity of different mouse strains to Str. pneumoniae, serotype 3, after the intraperitoneal injection of the infective agent was studied. These experiments revealed that the animals under study, so far as their susceptibility and sensitivity were concerned, formed a single group, highly sensitive to this serotype. The sublethal dose of the pneumococcus was determined. The distribution of pneumococci in the organs during a definite time interval was shown and the fact of the prolonged carriership of the capsular forms of the pneumococci was established...
