Table 3 shows the incidence of colonization of epidural catheter tip between diabetic and nondiabetic patients.
Table 4 shows the correlation between the incidence of colonization and alcoholism.
Additionally, the use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays to assess bacterial colonization types and levels was found to outperform the accuracy of cultures.
Rates of colonization were also higher in those with severe RSV infections of the lower respiratory tract who were admitted to the pediatric ICU (PICU), compared with inpatients with less severe disease (53.
Mycorrhizal symbioses- the union of roots and soil fungi- are universal in terrestrial ecosystems and may have been fundamental to land colonization by plants .
Again, though many works have been done on mycorrhizal colonization in other tropical countries such as India, Malaysia, Indonesia very little research work has been reported from Bangladesh .
A higher number of colonizations was recorded in high light intensity boxes.
There were no significant differences in number of colonizations between the 10-cm sections (P [greater than or equal to] 0.
Our goal in this paper is to point out an aspect of population bottlenecks, especially those associated with colonization
of new or vacant habitats, that can result in greater nuclear as opposed to cytoplasmic variation among populations.
To the Editor: Xu and colleagues (1) examined the nasopharyngeal bacterial colonization
rates in children with acute otitis media (AOM) and in healthy children.
The next most effective strategy, according to the analysis, would be a combination of universal contact precautions and universal CHG baths, which would prevent about 38% of colonizations
and 40% of infections, said Dr.
In Response: We thank Hernandez-Garduno and Elwood for drawing attention to the issue of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) colonization
(1), which was not described in our study (2).
Extended-spectrum cephalosporins and drugs with potent activity against anaerobic bacteria may promote infection and colonization
with VRE and may exert different effects on the initial establishment and persistence of high-density colonization
Of the 4,457 patients who had with evidence of NTM colonization
, the most prevalent species were MAC (n = 1,304, 29.
These 3 strains were analyzed by using an in vitro growth model, an in vivo nasopharyngeal colonization
model, and an in vivo pneumonia model.
