A genome-wide association study of variants associated with acquisition of Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia in a healthcare setting.
(BMC Infect Dis, 2014-02-13)
BACKGROUND: Humans vary in their susceptibility to acquiring Staphylococcus aureus infection, and research suggests that there is a genetic basis for this variability. Several recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) ...
Polymorphisms in Fibronectin Binding Proteins A and B among Staphylococcus aureus Bloodstream Isolates Are Not Associated with Arthroplasty Infection.
(PLoS One, 2015)
BACKGROUND: Nonsynonymous single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in fibronectin binding protein A (fnbA) of Staphylococcus aureus are associated with cardiac device infections. However, the role of fnbA SNPs in S. aureus ...
Poor Positive Predictive Value of Lyme Disease Serologic Testing in an Area of Low Disease Incidence.
(Clin Infect Dis, 2015-11-01)
BACKGROUND: Lyme disease is diagnosed by 2-tiered serologic testing in patients with a compatible clinical illness, but the significance of positive test results in low-prevalence regions has not been investigated. METHODS: ...
