Disease relevance of Bacteriology


High impact information on Bacteriology


Chemical compound and disease context of Bacteriology


Biological context of Bacteriology

  • According to the current edition of the Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology [11] the tyrosine decarboxylation test allows the differentiation of enterococci [16].
  • FK blood levels, maltose absorption test, histology, and bacteriology were performed at different postoperative days [17].
  • Between 1946 and 1960, a new phenomenon emerged in the field of bacteriology. "Bacterial sex," as it was called, revolutionized the study of genetics, largely by making available a whole new class of cheap, fast-growing, and easily manipulated organisms [18].
  • In 31 (76%) of the 41 episodes, the causative organisms were identified directly by specimen bacteriology or blood cultures (BCs) or indirectly by polymerase chain reaction or serology [19].
  • This program consists of weekly visits from 16 weeks' gestation and involves alternating transvaginal ultrasound assessment of cervical morphometry with cervico-vaginal bacteriology and fetal fibronectin swabs [20].

Anatomical context of Bacteriology


Associations of Bacteriology with chemical compounds

  • This is an account of the life and work of Robert Koch (1843-1910), Nobel Laureate in Medicine and a founder of the science of bacteriology [26].
  • The Special Bacteriology Section of the Center for Disease Control has received 38 cultures of a halophilic bacterium which apparently unnamed [27].
  • Faecal bacteriology was assessed in 12 patients with a pouch before and after metronidazole therapy [28].
  • The List of Bacterial Names with Standing in Nomenclature includes, alphabetically and chronologically, the official names of bacteria as published or validated in the International Journal of Systematic Bacteriology [29].
  • Contrary to the indications in Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology, butyrate, not caproate, was the main end product of glucose metabolism [30].

Gene context of Bacteriology

  • The effect of oral clarithromycin on health status and sputum bacteriology in stable COPD [31].
  • Quantitative bacteriology showed that IFN-gamma-/- and B cell-/- mice consistently harbored up to one log(10) more bacteria in their lungs, spleens and livers than WT mice at day 5 post aerosol exposure [32].
  • A knowledge of the urinary CEA level, therefore, would seem to contribute little to the diagnosis of patients presenting with haematuria and all patients must still be investigated by the conventional techniques of urinary bacteriology, cytology, intravenous pyelography and cystourethroscopy [33].
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess the bacteriology and beta-lactamase enzyme activity in aspirates of 10 acutely and 13 chronically inflamed maxillary sinuses [34].
  • The isolates analyzed using bacteriology were divided into three groups: MRSA, methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA) and non-SA [35].
