IVIS Spectrum CT to Image the Progression of Pneumococcal Infections In Vivo.

Summary of "IVIS Spectrum CT to Image the Progression of Pneumococcal Infections In Vivo."

Imaging through the IVIS Spectrum CT system does not provide the resolution at cellular level like the high-resolution or super-resolution microscopy. Rather, it detects bacterial infections in specific anatomical compartments/organs of the animals. The IVIS Spectrum imaging system is a unique imaging technology that allows for real-time monitoring of disease progression in living animals through the use of either bioluminescent or fluorescent probes.

Morbidity, mortality and antimicrobial resistance of pneumococcal infections in the Jamaican paediatric and adult populations.

Pneumococcal infections are a leading global cause of morbidity and mortality, complicated by the increasing antimicrobial resistance of pneumococcal isolates.

Protective potency of recombinant meningococcal IgA1 protease and its structural derivatives upon animal invasion with meningococcal and pneumococcal infections.

Immunization of mice with recombinant IgA1 protease of Neisseria meningitidis or several structural derivatives thereof protects the animals infected with a variety of deadly pathogens, including N. m...

Immunogenicity and safety of the 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine compared to 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide in immunocompetent adults: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Despite the use of 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV23) in adults there is substantial morbidity and mortality in the elderly due to pneumococcal infections. Since 2010, the 13-valent...

A method of delineating blood vessels by subtracting a tissue background image from an image of tissue plus intravascular contrast material that attenuates the X-ray photons. The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.

Includes the spectrum of human immunodeficiency virus infections that range from asymptomatic seropositivity, thru AIDS-related complex (ARC), to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
