Clinical cure and bacteriologic
eradication (confirmed or presumed) rates were virtually identical for the patients treated for 5 days (91.
findings in peritonsillar abscesses in young adults.
and fungal cultures of the CSF were negative.
eradication was achieved in 94% of both treatment groups at days 4-11, with 97% of E.
Koch's enduring interest in photography would become greatly enhanced with his bacteriologic
research in later life.
Application of a surface sampling technique to the evaluation of bacteriologic
effectiveness of certain hospital housekeeping procedures.
At the first assessment point, 4-11 days post-treatment, bacteriologic
eradication was achieved in 94% in the once daily therapy arm and 94% in the twice a day-treated patients; clinical cure was observed in 95% of the once-daily treated patients compared to 93% of twice-daily therapy patients.
Fecal samples collected at admission were subjected to routine virologic (electron microscopy [EM], cell cultures, latex agglutination, and reverse transcription PCR) and bacteriologic
(culturing with selective and differential media) examinations.
A total of 82 fecal samples were collected from cages, and evaluated by bacteriologic
methods and a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique for Campylobacter spp.
The two groups also showed very similar rates of bacteriologic
cure and radiologic cure.
However, bronchoalveolar lavage and transbronchial biopsy gave the bacteriologic
confirmation of the disease, and tuberculous granulomas were evident in bone marrow biopsy specimens.
Avelox demonstrated significantly higher bacteriologic
eradication rates in all subgroups analyzed as compared to patients who received clarithromycin, amoxicillin, or cefuroxime-axetil.
