Clinical impact of rapid antimicrobial susceptibility testing of blood culture isolates

, : Clinical impact of rapid antimicrobial susceptibility testing of blood culture isolates. Antimicrobial Agents and ChemoTherapy 21(6): 1023-1024

The results of a rapid, direct blood culture disk susceptibility test indicated that antimicrobial chemotherapy should be changed in 48 of 173 patients with bacteremia. In 32 patients (66.6%), the indicated change was made approximately 24 h sooner than if conventional, nonrapid susceptibility tests had been used to guide therapy.

The synthesis of didemniserinolipid B utilizing a ketalization/ring-closing metathesis (K/RCM) strategy is described. In the course of this work, a novel 2-allyl-4-fluorophenyl auxiliary for relay ring-closing metathesis (RRCM) was developed, whic...

Reported alcohol intake has an inverse association with body weight in women but is related to greater weight or no differences in weight in men. However, the relationship of alcohol consumption to weight appears to be less reliable in...

An isotopic technique enabling the study of sodium and potassium flux rates in human red cells is reported. Nine normal patients have been studied for both isotopes. The results obtained are compared with those published in the literature.
