[27] Other phenotypic tests include the modified Hodge test (MHT), which is able to detect carbapenemase producers and works well for the detection of KPCs and OXA-48 but is less sensitive to NDM producers.
The predominant isolates obtained in our study were yeasts (42, 38.8%) followed by dermatophytes (37, 34%) and NDMs (29, 26.8%).

The NDMS did just that by combining observations from paleontology and evolutionary biology with genetics and molecular biology.
Subdividing MS subjects into DMS and NDMS (Table 4) and also according to the low or high TG/HDL-C index (Table 5), we found an increase in TBARS and in N[O.sub.x] levels and a decrease in TBARS/N[O.sub.x] ratio in all the subgroups compared with normal controls.
