Comparison of Etests and Vitek 2(®) to broth microdilution for the susceptibility testing of Cryptococcus neoformans.

Hide Abstract
We determined the susceptibility of 102 clinical isolates Cryptococcus neoformans from Durban, South Africa, to amphotericin B, fluconazole, flucytosine, and voriconazole using broth microdilution (BMD) according to the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute M27-A3 document and compared these results with Etest and Vitek 2(®). Essential agreement (EA) of Etest and Vitek 2(®) compared to BMD was determined. Low MICs that were below the epidemiological cutoff values of the 4 antifungal agents tested were demonstrated by all isolates. The EA of Etests for fluconazole, amphotericin, and voriconazole was 95.1%, 83.3%, and 91.2%, respectively, and for Vitek 2(®) EA for fluconazole, amphotericin, and flucytosine was 97.1%, 95.1%, and 97.1%, respectively. The Vitek 2(®) showed good agreement with BMD and is a suitable alternative. Etests demonstrated good EA for azoles only. Clinical cryptococcal isolates from Durban remain susceptible to current recommended antifungal therapy.

Posttraumatic brain abscess caused by Aeromonas hydrophila.
J. Clin. Microbiol.
PUBLISHED: 03-12-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Posttraumatic brain abscesses are usually caused by Gram-negative bacilli, notably Enterobacteriaceae and Staphylococcus aureus. Although Aeromonas hydrophila is a recognized cause of trauma-related sepsis, it has not been previously isolated from posttraumatic brain abscesses. We describe the first case of Aeromonas hydrophila brain abscess.

Hide Abstract
The contribution of fungal infections to the morbidity and mortality of HIV-infected individuals is largely unrecognized. A recent meeting highlighted several priorities that need to be urgently addressed, including improved epidemiological surveillance, increased availability of existing diagnostics and drugs, more training in the field of medical mycology, and better funding for research and provision of treatment, particularly in developing countries.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
