CONCLUSION: Identification of the species is important for epidemiological reasons and for treatment purposes to ensure a better prognosis since some species present reduced susceptibility to azoles.
CONCLUSION: The study concludes that there was no significant presence of Candidal species when compared between pregnant and nonpregnant groups. The prevalence of Candida species also remained the same.
CONCLUSION: Ceftolozane-tazobactam treatment is as tolerable as comparative treatment options for acute bacterial infections in adult patients, however it has an increased risk of C. difficile infection. As a novel broad-spectrum antibiotic, ceftolozane-tazobactam could be a safe therapeutic option for use in common clinical practice.
The escalating rise in the population of multidrug-resistant (MDR) pathogens coupled with their biofilm forming ability has struck the global health as nightmare. Alongwith the threat of aforementioned menace, the sluggish development of new antibiotics and the continuous deterioration of the antibiotic pipeline has stimulated the scientific community toward the search of smart and innovative alternatives. In near future, membrane targeting antimicrobial polymers, inspired from antimicrobial…
The overexpression of P-glycoprotein (P-gp/ABCB1), an ATP-binding cassette (ABC) drug transporter, often contributes to the development of multidrug resistance (MDR) in cancer cells. P-gp mediates the ATP hydrolysis-dependent efflux of a wide range of chemotherapeutic agents out of cancer cells, thereby reducing the intracellular drug accumulation and decreasing the chemosensitivity of these multidrug-resistant cancer cells. Studies with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in P-gp-overexpressing…
CONCLUSION: This study found that mcr-1 was prevalent at a low frequency in the Quanzhou Women’s and Children’s Hospital. A similar genetic pattern of mcr-1 transmission was found in both E. coli and S. typhimurium.
CONCLUSION: The study suggested that the DOX/CEL-MTS-R(8)H(3) lipo is a promising strategy for overcoming drug resistance in breast cancer treatments with high targeting inhibition efficiency.
CONCLUSION: The developed CNN achieved radiologist-level performance in detecting scaphoid bone fractures on conventional radiographs of the hand, wrist, and scaphoid.Keywords: Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), Deep Learning Algorithms, Machine Learning Algorithms, Feature Detection-Vision-Application Domain, Computer-Aided DiagnosisSee also the commentary by Li and Torriani in this issue.Supplemental material is available for this article.©RSNA, 2021.
CONCLUSION: The results of this study will motivate the infection control committee of the study hospital to assess current infection control program and strategies so that high VAP rate in the study intensive care unit can be reduced to the minimum possible level.
CONCLUSION: In this global antimicrobial resistance era, all hospitals should have motivated antimicrobial stewardship teams. Each hospital should establish its own stewardship program and often revise it. Improvement in rational antibiotic use is hard to achieve without multidisciplinary involvement.
