Abstract

Shigella spp. are exquisitely fastidious gram-negative organisms which frequently escape detection by traditional culture methods. To get a more complete understanding of the disease burden caused by Shigella in Nha Trang, Vietnam, real-time PCR was used to detect Shigella DNA. Randomly...read more

Shigellosis

Shigellosis is an infection of the intestines caused by Shigella bacteria. Signs and symptoms may range from mild abdominal discomfort to full-blown dysentery characterized by cramps, diarrhea, with slimy-consistent stools, fever, blood, pus, or mucus in stools or tenesmus. Discover the latest research on shigellosis here.

Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension results in increased pulmonary arterial pressures and pulmonary vascular resistance, commonly from cardiac and respiratory diseases. As a result of the structural and functional changes, right heart failure can occur, leading to premature death. Here is the latest research on pulmonary hypertension.
