Publication date: November–December 2019Source: Journal of the American Society of Cytopathology, Volume 8, Issue 6Author(s): Dianna L. Ng, Ronald BalassanianIntroductionFine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is a minimally invasive biopsy technique and an important tool for diagnosing infectious diseases. Rapid onsite evaluation allows for triage for ancillary testing, including microbiologic cultures. We aimed to determine the etiology of granulomatous inflammation diagnosed by FNAB by correlating with culture results and clinical history.Materials and methodsA 16-year retrospective review of cases diagnosed as &ldqu...

CONCLUSIONS The causative organisms of BSI and the presence of MDR in a hospital BICU were not typical, which supports the need for routine bacterial monitoring. Hospital sewage provides a potential source of bacteriophage for the treatment of MDR pathogenic bacteria. PMID: 31693655 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract A Gram-stain-negative, cocci or short rod-shaped, yellow-pigmented bacterium, designated strain S2-4-2T, was isolated from coastal sediment of Spartina alterniflora in Quanzhou Bay, PR China. Growth was observed at 15-40 °C (optimum, 30 °C) and pH 6.0-8.0 (optimum, pH 7.0). Strain S2-4-2T tolerated 0-10 % NaCl (optimum, 1 %). The 16S rRNA gene of strain S2-4-2T showed highest sequence similarity to Croceicoccus pelagius Ery9T (98.2 %), followed by Croceicoccus naphthovorans PQ-2T, Croceicoccus marinus E4A9T and Croceicoccus mobilis Ery22T (97.6%, 96.3 and 96.3 %, respectiv...

Authors: Takigawa M, Yatsu T, Takino Y, Matsumoto S, Kitano T, Lee J, Arai T, Tanaka H, Ishii T, Mori Y, Ishigami A Abstract Vancomycin is recommended for treating severe infections caused by Gram-positive cocci, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. However, renal damage often occurs as a side effect because vancomycin is mainly excreted via the kidneys. The mechanism of vancomycin-associated nephrotoxicity is thought to involve the elevation of oxidative stress in the kidneys. Vitamin C (VC) has strong antioxidant properties; therefore, we evaluated the effect of high-dose VC preadministration on...
