Third, 28% of patients had STSS that has been described in other forms of streptococcal infections (13) and met the criteria established by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (14).
Pneumonia attributable to IGASI was based on a clinical diagnosis made by the treating physician and could include STSS with respiratory distress.
The multiorgan involvement in STSS suggests that a toxin produced by GAS might be involved in pathogenesis.
Most patients affected by STSS are above 30 years of age.
aureus and clade C GCGS organisms had severe infections: 2 patients, 1 of whom died, required renal replacement therapy; 1 was an intravenous drug user with endocarditis; and 1 was a 60-year-old man with diabetes who sought medical care for STSS from an unknown source and subsequently died.
For those analyses using STSS scores as the dependent variable, analysis of histogram and normal P-P plots suggested slight heterodasticity and deviation from normality; however, it has been argued that regression is robust to such violations (Li, Wong, Lamoureux, & Wong, 2012; Tabachnick & Fidell, 2013; van Belle, 2002).
All the M3 isolates (13 STSS and 14 pharyngitis isolates) possessed the fbaB gene; however, only 8 of 13 STSS isolates expressed FbaB protein on their cell surface.
Similar mean STSS scores have been reported in other professions with comparable frequency of contact to traumatized individuals, including computer forensics investigators [8] and forensic interviewers [9].
The patient's illness met the criteria for STSS as shown in [Table 1] and poor treatment response was found, including vancomycin, imipenem-cilastatin sodium, and aggressive resuscitation.
The total scores for the IES and STSS were entered on step 4 as research suggests the extent to which an event has been perceived as traumatic or uncontrollable would be associated with the resulting amount of stress (Foley & Kelly, 2007).
Over the next few years we will conduct several tests using the tracking capabilities of these STSS demonstration satellites, including the launching of an interceptor from an Aegis ship, to intercept ballistic missile targets.
STSS used objective measures in the form of Key Performance Events (KPEs) such as "ground contractor satellite operations (LSOC) facilities established, spacecraft available for space vehicle integration and test, and thermal vacuum test complete" (personal communication, September 27, 2006).
