Abstract

Since the introduction of the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV7) in Korea in 2003, the proportion of non-vaccine serotypes has increased. Among non-vaccine serotypes, serotype 11A is highly prevalent in Korea. We investigated the prevalence and characteristics of Streptococcus pneumo...read more

Penicillins

Penicillin is a group of antibiotics that can be administered intravenously or intramuscularly to treat bacterial infections caused by staphylococci and streptococci. While they are still widely used today, many bacteria have developed resistance to penicillin. Here is the latest research on penicillins.

Antifungals

An antifungal, also known as an antimycotic medication, is a pharmaceutical fungicide or fungistatic used to treat and prevent mycosis such as athlete's foot, ringworm, candidiasis, cryptococcal meningitis, and others. Discover the latest research on antifungals here.

Bacterial Meningitis

Bacterial meningitis continues to be an important cause of mortality and morbidity throughout the world. Here is the latest research.

Bacterial Pneumonia

Bacterial pneumonia is a prevalent and costly infection that is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in patients of all ages. Here is the latest research.

Meningococcal disease

Meningococcal disease is caused by the bacterium Neisseria meningitidis and often manifests as meningitis or septicemia. The serogroups A, B, C, Y, and W135 are responsible for most cases. Find the latest research on meningococcal disease here.

Pneumococcal infection

Pneumococcal infection is an infection caused by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae, which is also called the pneumococcus.

Retinitis Pigmentosa

Retinitis Pigmentosa is a hereditary, progressive degeneration of the retina due to death of rod photoreceptors initially and subsequent death of cone photoreceptors. It is characterized by deposition of pigment in the retina.Discover the latest research on retinitis pigmentosa here.

Quinolones

Quinolones are a class of broad-spectrum antibiotics used against a wide range of bacteria. Examples include lomefloxacin, ofloxacin, and norfloxacin. Discover the latest research on quinolones and their derivatives in this feed.

Multi-drug Resistance

Multi-drug resistance or multiresistance is antimicrobial resistance shown by a species of microorganism to multiple antimicrobial drugs. Discover the latest research on multi-drug resistance here.
