value of sputum culture in diagnosis of pneumococcal our laboratory, culture of sputum was extremely useful in diagnosing the etiology of pneumococcal pneumonia. of 31 consecutive patients with bacteremic pneumococcal pneumonia, 29 (94%) had streptococcus pneumoniae cultured from sputum. recovery of pneumococci in culture was enhanced by anaerobic incubation as well as by a plate bile test and an optochin disk on a primary blood agar plate.197718489
environment and selfsufficiency of elder man (author's transl).the problems of environment of elderly people are concentrated in social area and in the intimate living space, which can not be maintained sufficiently because of increasing age and decreasing performance. the consequences of mobility in industrial revolution scattered families and also deprived old men of their helpers. inadequate living rooms and absence of technical comfort especially in the houses of the very aged men produce intense dependence of the own individual performance. medical dat ...197827118

the puzzle of "urethral syndrome": a possible answer?82 strains of slow-growing, co2-dependent, gram-positive organisms have been isolated from the urine of 9 male and 73 female patients. 100% of the men and 93% of the women had urinary symptoms at the time of isolation, and 66% of the specimens showed pyuria. these organisms might account for the urinary symptoms of some patients previously diagnosed as having "urethral syndrome". preliminary data show that, if appropriate antibacterial treatment is given, most of these patients become symptom-fr ...197986778

the binding of streptomycin to ribonucleotides.incubation of streptomycin (sm) with [32p]5'-ribonucleotides at ph 7.0 produces fractions that migrate towards the cathode in high voltage electrophoresis (hve) separations at ph 3.5. sm appears to interact with pg, pa and pc but not with pu. the appearance of these [32p]-labeled fractions is dependent on incubation time and sm concentration. incubation of nucleotides with dihydrostreptomycin (dsm) or sm reduced with sodium cyanoborohydride (nabh3cn) at ph 5.0, does not produce detectable change ...197993596

reversal of serotonin vasodilatation in the dog external carotid bed by sympathetic view of the conflicting reports of both constrictor and dilator effects of serotonin on the external carotid vascular bed of dogs, the influence of intraarterial infusions of the amine on blood flow through this territory was assessed by electromagnetic flowmeter techniques. in anesthetized intact dogs, serotonin produced dose-related increases in flow. these vasodilator responses were markedly diminished after ipsilateral vagotomy and were followed by delayed vasoconstriction, which then bec ...197994376

lower levels of thyrotropin-releasing hormone-degrading activity in human cord and in maternal sera than in the serum of euthyroid, nonpregnant adults.thyrotropin-releasing hormone (trh)-degrading activity was investigated in human cord, maternal, and euthyroid adult sera by measuring (a) the rate of disappearance of trh and (b) the rate of formation of degradation products. the rate of trh degradation in cord and maternal sera was 25-33% of that in euthyroid adult serum. concomitantly, in cord and maternal sera, the rate of formation of proline, a major trh degradation product in serum, was one-quarter to one-third that in euthyroid adult ser ...197896140

[the dehydrogenation of butandiol by "vibrio parahaemolyticus" and other vibrios (author's transl)].the butandiol dehydrogenase was examined in 64 vibrios isolated in togo 1970/71. this enzyme was found in all of the not halophilic strains and in the species vibrio alginolyticus, whereas the species v. parahaemolyticus exhibited as well dehydrating as not dehydrating strains. the butandiol dehydrogenase could be a good marker for epidemiologic analysis in characterizing v. parahaemolyticus strains isolated from different sources, especially if no antisera are available.1976952445
marine vibrios associated with superficial septic lesions.three cases are reported in which a marine vibrio, vibrio alginolyticus, was isolated from superficial septic lesions. all cases had been exposed to sea-water. the possible significane of these findings and the need for further investigations are discussed.19761002833
comparative study of alkaline phosphatase activity in lymphocytes, mitogen-induced blasts, lymphoblastoid cell lines, acute myeloid leukemia, and chronic lymphatic leukemia cells.alkaline phosphatase [orthophosphoricmonoester phosphohydrolase (alkaline ph optimum), ec] purified from a burkitt lymphoma cell line (daudi) and moloney-virus-induced murine leukemia (yac) showed unique catalytic properties in substrate specificity and inhibition by cysteamine-s-phosphate. it migrated on polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis in a single activity band. alkaline phosphatase with similar properties was found in several human lymphoblastoid cell lines, in chronic lymphatic leu ...19761064015
sensitivity of trichomonas vaginalis to metronidazole, tinidazole, and nifuratel in vitro.prompted by the sensitivity of trichomonads to metronidazole and nifuratel in clinical practice, a study was conducted in 1971-1972 of 63 consecutive strains of trichomonas vaginalis isolated from women with clinically refractory vaginal discharge. their susceptibility to metronidazole, tinidazole, and nifuratel was tested, using a serial tube dilution technique. the minimum concentrations which in 48 hrs caused immobilization and lysis of trichomonads cultured in diamond's medium was assessed. ...19761087577
isolation of vibrio parahaemolyticus and vibrio alginolyticus from estuarine areas of southeastern alaska.the first reported isolations of halophilic vibrios, including vibrio parahaemolyticus, from three seafood processing areas in southeastern alaska are described.19751124924
lethal effect of fresh sea water on vibrio parahaemolyticus and isolation of bdellovibrio parasitic against the organism.halophilic bdellovibrio, which is parasitic and lytic to vibrio pharahaemolyticus, was ioslated from fresh sea water in the winter. it had a lethal effect on v. parahaemolyticus. the optimum temperature ofr multiplication ranged from 25 c to 30 c and growth was not observed at 35 c. plaque numbers of the isolate reached a maximum in 17 hr under conditions of shaking at 25 c in autoclaved sea water supplemented with v. parahaemolyticus cells, and were as high as ten times the number of host cells ...19751202252
isolation of vibrio alginolyticus from wound infections.vibrio alginolyticus was isolated from two patients with leg wounds. both had a history of recent exposure to ocean water.19751206111

roles of k+ and na+ in ph homeostasis and growth of the marine bacterium vibrio alginolyticus.the marine bacterium vibrio alginolyticus, containing 470 mm-k+ and 70 mm-na+ inside its cells, was able to regulate the cytoplasmic ph (ph(in)) in the narrow range 7.6-7.8 over the external ph (ph(out)) range 6.0-9.0 in the presence of 400 mm-na+ and 10 mm-k+. in the absence of external k+, however, phin was regulated only at alkaline ph(out) values above 7.6. when the cells were incubated in the presence of unusually high k+ (400 mm) and 4 mm na+, the ph(in) was regulated only at acidic ph(out ...19921326594
catabolite repression of the h(+)-translocating atpase in vibrio parahaemolyticus.cells of vibrio parahaemolyticus grown in the presence of glucose showed reduced (by about 40%) oxidative phosphorylation. with this observation as a basis, we examined the effect of glucose on the level of h(+)-translocating atpase. the addition of glucose to the growth medium reduced the specific activity and the amount of the h(+)-translocating atpase in membrane vesicles of v. parahaemolyticus. these reductions were reversed by adding cyclic amp (camp) to the growth medium. we cloned some pa ...19921328162
