antibacterial and antipeptide antibodies in japanese and finnish patients with rheumatoid has been suggested that proteus infection may be involved in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (ra). bacterial and peptide immune responses in patients with ra and other control subjects were investigated in two geographically different populations. serum samples from finnish patients with early ( n=72) and advanced ( n=27) ra and 30 finnish healthy controls, as well as from japanese ra patients from two different locations: tokyo ( n=30) and otsu ( n=30), 18 patients with systemic lup ...200415045628
intestinal microflora in 45 crows in ueno zoo and the in vitro susceptibilities of 29 escherichia coli isolates to 14 antimicrobial agents.microorganisms from 45 jungle crows (corvus macrorhynchos) captured from july to december 2002 at ueno zoo, tokyo were identified as escherichia coli, proteus mirabilis, klebsiella pneumoniae, klebsiella oxytoca, enterobacter aerogenes, enterobacter cloacae, enterobacter agglomerans, pseudomonas maltophila, staphylococcus spp., micrococcus spp., and streptococcus spp. e. coli showed the highest rate of isolation (21.6%). in an in vitro susceptibility test for 29 isolates of e. coli to 14 antimic ...200415528866
rapidly spreading ctx-m-type beta-lactamase-producing proteus mirabilis in recent years, increased isolation of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (esbl)-producing proteus mirabilis has been reported in japan. we undertook an investigation to determine the prevalence of esbl-producing p. mirabilis isolated in japan and to characterise the genotype. seventy-four p. mirabilis isolates recovered from specimens at 54 hospitals in japan between march and october 2006 were included in the study. of the 74 p. mirabilis isolates examined, 28 (37.8%) were esbl-producers. the b ...201020609568
