Abstract

We characterized the prevalence of pilus islets 1 (PI-1) and 2 (PI-2) and the clonality of Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates taken from children with acute otitis media (AOM) to study the association between pilus existence and AOM disease potential prior to pneumococcal conjugate vacci...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.

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.

Pneumococcal infection

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