  • Clinical
  • from June 29 through July 2, 2011, researchers from the hygiene team of the Rehabilitation Centre Inkendaal in Vlezenbeek, Belgium reported that infection control strategies taken for MRSA spread in their rehabilitation center did not lead to a high incidence density of MRSA clinical samples.

  • We have constructed, by allelic replacement, a deletion mutation of the S. aureus sigB gene in the clinical isolate WCUH29 and examined the phenotypic effects of the mutation on the strain and its ability to cause infection in three distinct animal infection models. (asm.org)
  • These observations and the fact that over half of all bacterial infections are believed to involve biofilms make the study of the role of biofilms in host-pathogen interactions an area of major scientific and clinical relevance ( 29 , 69 ). (asm.org)
  • strains
  • In addition, monoclonal antibodies to PspA protect mice against infection with specific strains of pneumococci virulent for mice. (asm.org)
  • However, both genes are essential for virulence in mice, because acapsular strains resulting from gene deletion are unable to produce fatal infections or multiply in vivo and complementation of the acapsular phenotype restores virulence. (asm.org)
  • sufficient
  • A sufficient number of isolation rooms should be maintained to house patients with known or suspected active tuberculosis disease. (cdc.gov)
  • rooms
  • This article was originally published by BSRIA as Design of isolation rooms for infection control in June 2015. (designingbuildings.co.uk)
  • they found that air in the isolation rooms and anterooms was exhausted directly to the outside as recommended. (cdc.gov)
  • Investigators recommended that the anterooms adjacent to the isolation rooms be rebalanced. (cdc.gov)
  • All but one of the isolation rooms measured met the CDC guidelines for negative pressure (greater than or equal to 0.01 inches of water gauge). (cdc.gov)
  • HHE Program investigators recommended that the employer follow CDC recommendations for airflow rates in isolation rooms and anterooms. (cdc.gov)
  • Investigators also evaluated the use of portable air cleaners that could be used in standard patient rooms because of an insufficient number of airborne isolation rooms. (cdc.gov)
  • laboratory
  • When IPs are lacking, the main factor is the absence of medical prescription for IPs, underscoring the need for alerts to physicians by the microbiological laboratory and/or the infection control team. (cambridge.org)
  • virus
  • A primary enzootic of equine Getah virus infection involving 722 of 1,903 racehorses occurred at a training center in Japan between September and November of 1978. (ajtmh.org)
