the normal microbial flora of the outer ear canal in healthy norwegian individuals.the microbial flora of the outer ear canal was determined for 77 healthy individuals (m = 44, f = 33). no growth of any microbe was found in 5% of males and 15% of females. coagulase-negative staphylococci, dominated by staphylococcus epidermidis, were the commonest microbe group found (83% of persons sampled). staphylococcus aureus was found in 7% males and no females. diptheroids were cultured from 32% of the samples. the only gram-negative rod found was hafnia alvei in 4% of individuals. no v ...19902216049
multiple staphylococcal cassette chromosomes and allelic variants of cassette chromosome recombinases in staphylococcus aureus and coagulase-negative staphylococci from norway.we investigated the nature of the staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (sccmec) elements and cognate insertion sites in a collection of 42 clinical staphylococcal isolates of various species from norway. the ccr and mec genes and the attachment sites (attl/attr) were identified by pcr, southern blot hybridization, and dna sequencing. we found 10 possibly new sccmec types and one previously unreported variant of sccmec type iii (mec complex a, ccrab3, and ccrc7) in staphylococcus epidermidis, s ...200717307983
an epidemiological survey of urinary tract infections among outpatients in northern norway.urinary tract infections (uti) in all outpatients from several municipalities in northern norway were examined during 1 year. comparatively high frequencies of uti were found among women of all ages, among people greater than 60 years of both sexes, in coastline municipalities, and during the fall and winter. about 70% of all uti were caused by escherichia coli, more in women than in men. other gram-negative enterobacteria (klebsiella, proteus) and gram-positive cocci (staphylococcus epidermidis ...19854059868
